31 Celebrity Couples You Didn't Know Were Couples
Harrison Ford and Calista Flockhart
Now here's a huge age difference. Harrison Ford is 22 years older than Calista Flockhart, but they still made their relationship work, even though a lot of people have no clue that they are actually together. This comes as no surprise, considering that Ford is without a doubt one of the most private celebrities. Hardly the one to share much information about his personal life, Harrison never revealed much about his relationship with Calista, although it is evident that they're happy together.
The couple met at the 2002 Golden Globe awards, and ultimately started dating. Ford decided to propose to Flockhart during Valentine's Day weekend in 2009. They got married just a year later. Their wedding ceremony was held in New Mexico, where Ford was filming "Cowboys and Aliens" at the time. The couple has an adopted son named Liam, whom Flockhart adopted back in 2001.
Peter Krause and Lauren Graham
The Parenthood stars found love in each other since 2010. We think they went past their television roles (they play brother and sister on the show) as love couldn't just wait. Although they were both in their forties when they met and both had relationships with other celebrities that went south, Lauren has said that their relationship "just sort of happened."
Lauren told People that the secret to their relationship is communication.
"I mean, he's really my favorite person to talk to. And he always makes me laugh. He's really, really funny," she said. She added that it's nice to date someone in the business because "it's hard to explain to people when you have a fancy job like being an actor what is challenging about it. So we just kind of have that shorthand, a shared language, which is helpful."
Jason Sudeikis and Olivia Wilde
The good-looking celebrity pair met in 2011, at a Saturday Night Live after-party. Jason became interested in Olivia upon meeting her and managed to get her number that same night. However, Olivia recently revealed that Jason didn't text her for a month after he got her phone number. Apparently, the comedian wanted to take it really slow. In fact, the first time he kissed her was on their fourth date! Nevertheless, they both really fell in love with each other and got engaged just two years after they first met. They now have both a son and a daughter whom they love very much.
With her mesmerizing blue eyes and perfect pout, Olivia Wilde seems like the type to be pursued, not the one pursuing. But with her now fiance Jason Sudeikis, Wilde was the one who did the asking out.
Adam Brody and Leighton Meester
The Gossip Girl found her prince charming in The O.C. star. The two met in 2010 while filming "The Oranges," a romantic comedy released in 2012. It was nearly two years ago that the A-list pair welcomed their first child together, a daughter named Arlo Day Brody.
The low-key couple shocked fans when they decided to tie the knot in a secret ceremony in February 2014 after nine months of dating and a 3-month engagement. Just like their relationship, the ceremony was very private and reserved only for their friends and family. Nowadays, the two rarely make public appearances, but Adam has recently stated that their relationship is great and that Leighton "is the best." It seems like the actor is really enjoying the family life. In an interview with People magazine, he was quoted saying: "I do a nice morning hike with my daughter. That's always a treat. It's something to do in the wee hours of the morning when she's up. It's a good activity for both of us."
Claire Danes and Hugh Dancy
Homeland star Claire Danes is happily married with Hugh Dancy. They met in 2006 while filming the drama film "Evening" in Rhode Island. Just three years after meeting, the pair got engaged. Several months after they announced their engagement, they held a secret wedding ceremony in Paris. In fact, the ceremony was so private that it's still unknown whether it was held in August or September. The wedding perfectly reflected their relationship, since they don't make that many headlines as a couple.
The couple met on the set of a movie that involves a lot of romantic and emotional scenes, so it comes as no surprise that this portion of the film got to both of them. They now live in West Village, New York City and have a son together. They seem to be very happy with their marriage. In a 2014 interview with Glamour, Danes revealed that she believes she really "lucked out."
Michael Sheen and Sarah Silverman
Who would have thought that the reserved and timid British actor would fall in love with the bawdy American comedian Sarah? Michael Sheen was known for having two very serious relationships before he began dating Sarah. He was first in a six-year relationship with English ballet dancer Lorraine Stewart, after which he dated Canadian actress Rachel McAdams. He broke up with Rachel in 2013. Just one year later, he started dating Sarah Silverman, and they have been in a happy and fulfilling relationship ever since.
Michael has a 17-year-old daughter from a previous relationship with English actress Kate Beckinsale. Kate has recently noted that Sarah is a fantastic woman and a great influence on their daughter. In an interview with Stylist, Kate was quoted saying: "Sarah's a great person and I'm glad she's in the village that's helping. It's important as a teenager to have good women in your life building up the fabric of your experience of becoming a woman."
Taran Killam and Cobie Smulders
These two have been together for a very long time. They became engaged in 2009, but they were dating several years prior to their engagement. They are a very low-key couple, but are always incredibly cute when seen together. Taran and Cobie married in California on September 8, 2012. The pair currently resides in New York City, although they spent several years being bi-coastal. They have two daughters together, one born in 2009, and the other born in 2015.
They are very fond of each other. In fact, Killam told Us Magazine that Killam is "literally my favorite person." Killam told Us Magazine that Killam is "literally my favorite person." He notes that for him, it's a treat simply laying side by side with her. Taran also revealed that Cobie's generosity is what he loves most about his wife.
Chris Pratt and Anna Faris
Talk about a celebrity power couple! Chris and Anna are way too adorable they're so good to squeeze! Honestly, they look great together and had literally loved each other through thick and thin. They met in 2007, on the set of a movie called "Take Me Home Tonight," in which Anna played Chris' love interest. However, they developed feelings for each other off-screen as well. Quickly after meeting, they started dating and became really close. In 2008, they got engaged, and less than a year after that, they held their wedding ceremony in Bali. The couple currently resides in Hollywood Hills, California.
Chris and Anna have a son, who was born in 2012. After the birth of their preterm son, Pratt revealed that this experience is what really managed to define his faith in God. Their son was nine weeks premature, and had to spend a month in the hospital before going home.
Maya Rudolph and Paul Thomas Anderson
Actually they are not YET married but they've been each other's pillar since 2001 and have four kids. Yep you read that right, FOUR. They have three daughters: Pearl Bailey, Lucille, and Minnie Ida, and a son named Jack. Despite the fact that they are not yet married, they have been together for 16 years, which definitely reflects how great their relationship is. Despite the fact that they are both famous and are in such a serious and long relationship, not much is known about them as an actual couple. They like to keep things private, which we can definitely respect.
Nevertheless, they occasionally talk about their relationship, and they're always very happy and excited when they do so. For example, in a 2013 interview, Maya told The Los Angeles Times that they have a fun game that they love to play in which she names a movie that she saw in LA and Paul has to guess the theater in which she saw it. According to her, Paul always gets it right.
John Corbett and Bo Derek
The 70's swimsuit beauty and the Northern Exposure star started dating in 2002. Both of these celebrities are known for being very sweet, so it comes as surprise that they were once signle at the same time. In fact, not only were they single, but they were trying hard to meet someone. They ended up being set up on a date by a Hollywood agent. The agent that set them up is Norby Walters, who in 2002 was hosting an Oscars party. When he invited Corbett, the actor revealed that he wasn't dating anyone and that he had no one to bring to the party, so Norby decided to set him up with Bo.
The couple has been dating for 15 years, but they haven't announced an engagement or any plans of marriage. They may never get married, since John once stated that he doesn't see himself having children or getting married.
Nick Offerman and Megan Mullally
Looks like these two tickled the funny bones of each other! These two comedic actors met in 2000 while doing a play called "The Berlin Circle." Nick revealed that he was dealing with a rocky period in his life prior to him getting cast in the play. He was drinking a lot at the time and he wasn't satisfied where he was as an actor. When he got cast in "The Berlin Circle," him and Megan were the only actors who didn't know anyone else in the production, which ultimately brought them closer.
This play wasn't the only time the couple worked together. In fact, Nick appeared in Megan's sitcom, "Will & Grace," while Mullally returned the favor when she appeared in "Parks and Recreation." They also worked together in the movies "Smashed," "The Kings of Summer," and "Hotel Transylvania 2."
Jennifer Grey and Clark Gregg
These two certainly look good together. The Dirty Dancing star married Agent Coulson way back in 2001 and they've been together ever since. They met through their mutual friends in 2000, and it didn't take them long to realize that they were perfect for each other and that they should spend the rest of their lives together. It's evident that they were right, since they've been happily married for 16 years!
Despite both of them being very famous, you can hardly see any headlines or rumors about their relationship. Like every other couple, they surely fight from time to time, but it looks like they definitely enjoy each other's company too much to let anything break them apart. The couple has a daughter that was born on the same year of their marriage. Clark and Jennifer are known for frequently bringing their daughter along to award shows.
Peter Facinelli and Jennie Garth
Here's a couple that ultimately didn't manage to make things work, even though they were together for nearly 20 years. The couple met in 1995, while filming a TV movie called "An Unfinished Affair." They got married six years later, and had three daughters during their marriage. It was Peter who decided to file for a divorce in 2012. The divorce was finalized in 2013. Because of their low-key relationship, most people had no idea that they had been together for such a long time until their divorce.
Neither Peter nor Jennie were really open to sharing why they actually split up, but Peter did reveal that the break up was very painful. During a 2012 interview with Kelly Ripa, Facinelli noted that both him and Jennie still have a great relationship and that they take parenting very seriously, but that can't be romantically involved anymore. Nevertheless, he did say that they will always be in each other's lives.
Kirsten Dunst and Garrett Hedlund
Here's another couple that didn't manage to make things work. They met in 2012, while filming "On The Road" together. Although they seemed to have a perfect relationship, Kirsten and Garrett have decided to go their separate ways last year. Despite the fact that they attended the 2016 Golden Globes together in January, they announced their split in April. They were in a relationship for four years before they decided to call it quits. Nevertheless, after splitting up, they had nothing but kind words for each other.
According to a source close to People magazine, the relationship between the two had been pretty rocky for some time prior to their split, and that the breakup was actually good for both of them. The main reason why they split up is because they have different personalities and that they couldn't agree on how their future should look.
Helen Hunt and Hank Azaria
During the '90s, Helen and Hank looked like they had a relationship that would last forever. They always looked incredibly happy when they were together. Hank and Helen met in 1994, and got married five years later. Unfortunately, their marriage lasted only 17 months. Helen was quick to find a new partner, producer Matthew Carnahan, who she started dating in 2001. Her and Matthew have been together ever since and even have a daughter.
On the other hand, Hank wasn't actually able to get over Helen after their divorce. In an interview with Elle magazine, Azaria revealed that the reason why it was so hard for him to get over Helen was because she constantly kept popping up on billboards while he was trying to keep her out of his mind and attempt to move on with his life. He noted that being constantly reminded of their failed romance was what made it so hard to move on.
David Cross and Amber Tamblyn
David has been known for his work in Arrested Development while Amber is known for her role in the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. Cross and Amber met on a connecting flight from Houston to Louisiana. Until that point, they had known each other from different award shows, but never really spoke to each other. After noticing that Amber was looking at his direction, he switched seats so that he could talk to her. Amber admits that she was staring at him on the airplane, since she was a huge fan of Arrested Development.
Despite the 19-year age difference, the two hit it off quite well. Four years after they met, they got engaged. In 2012, just one year after they announced their engagement, the couple tied the know. They couldn't be happier together, especially after announcing that they recently had a daughter.
Rachel Weisz and Daniel Craig
Considering the fact that Rachel has previously stated that she always makes sure to keep what her and Daniel do as a couple private, it comes as no surprise that a lot of people have no clue that they are actually married. In an interview with Hello! Magazine, Rachel noted that Daniel is simply too famous and that not keeping their relationship private would be a betrayal. She was quoted saying: "When you're young, you tell your girlfriends everything. One of the great pleasures of not being an adolescent is that you don't have to share everything. When you're married, that door closes."
Prior to them getting romantically involved with each other, Daniel and Rachel were friends for several years. However, after working on the movie "Dream House," they became more than just friends. They began dating towards the end of 2010, and decided to tie the know just several months later. Just like their relationship, their wedding ceremony was kept private. In fact, only four guests were in attendance.
Michael Emerson and Carrie Preston
mThe Lost and True Blood actors, respectively, have been married for a whopping and amazing 16 years together since 1998. Talk about a marriage that lasts! Despite the fact that they didn't get to see much of each other at certain times due to their careers, Michael and Carrie still remained a couple. The most challenging period of their relationship was undoubtedly when Michael got his gig on the TV show "Lost" as a series regular. Although Michael has said on numerous occasions filming "Lost" was an experience of a lifetime, he still patiently waited for the day to return to his wife.
After living in different rental homes for four years, Carrie and Emerson decided to settle down in Los Angeles. They moved into their first owned house around their 10th year anniversary. Despite their sometimes conflicting schedules, the couple managed to act together on certain occasions. Namely, Carrie appeared both in "Lost" and "Person of Interest."
Catherine Keener and Dermot Mulroney
Although these two aren't still together, it's worth noting that they were in a relationship for 17 years, which is something that you rarely get to see in Hollywood. The couple met in 1987, on the set of a movie called "Survival Quest." It didn't take them long to grow close to each other, seeing as how they got married just three years after meeting. The couple had their first and only child in 1999. In May 2005, they decided to get separated, while they finalized their divorce two years later.
They were never really a couple that made any headlines, and even their divorce wasn't so dramatic. They simply stated that they had irreconcilable differences, which is why they couldn't be married to each other anymore. According to the divorce papers, they both agreed for joint legal and physical custody of their son.
Mireille Enos and Alan Ruck
"The Killing" star and Ferris Beuller actor have been married since 2008. For some reason, this is a relationship that a lot of people have no clue about, probably because we've never heard rumors or gossip about either one of them being unhappy in the relationship. Despite the fact that there is a 19-year age difference between Alan and Mireille, they still found a way to make it work and have a happy marriage.
Prior to meeting Mireille, Alan was in a 20-year relationship with Claudia Stefany. However, upon meeting Enos, he managed to quickly move on. In fact, he met her the same year he got divorced from his first wife, and it only took him three years to enter his second marriage. Alan and Mireille have both a son and a daughter together. Judging by the photos that surface on the Internet from time to time, it looks like these two have a great relationship.
Amy Poehler and Nick Kroll
Here's a relationship that didn't really last long, even though Amy and Nick look like they are perfect for each other. One of the main reasons why they split up is because of their conflicting schedules. Maybe if they had found more time to see each other, they would have still been together. Amy started dating Nick as she was getting out of a serious relationship with Will Arnett. Amy and Will had been married from 2003 to 2016, although they officially separated in 2012.
Considering the fact that Amy and Nick dated from 2013 to 2015, the famous actress was still legally married to Arnett during the whole duration of her relationship with Kroll. According to friends close to Poehler and Nick, they both tried very hard to make their relationship work. However, they were ultimately spending more time apart then together.
Isla Fisher and Sacha 'Borat' Cohen
The Australian redhead beauty met funny British man Sacha at a party in Sydney back in 2002 and started dating since then. They got engaged just two years lated, but it took them another 6 years before they finally decided to tie the knot. The reason why they were engaged for such a long time is partly because they were too busy with their careers. However, it's also worth noting that Isla needed some time to convert to Sacha's religion - Judaism. They now have two cute daughters and a son.
After they got married, the Australian actress revealed that being married to the comedian feels like winning the lottery. Namely, in an interview with Sunday Telegraph, Isla said that since life is filled with highs and lows, it's great when you have a best friend that you can share everything with. She also noted that she thinks that marriage is overall a wonderful institution and that it represents the most important decision in your life.
Paulina Porizkova and Ric Ocasek
The ever gorgeous model Paulina and the Cars frontman met in 1984 during the filming of the band's "Drive" music video. At the time, Paulina was just 19 years old, while Ric was 35 and married to his second wife, Suzanne Otcasek. Despite the age difference and the fact that Ric was married, the two managed to fall in love very quickly. After meeting Paulina, Ric decided to divorce his second wife and marry the Czech model. The two got married in 1989, and they're still together, so it looks like Ric made a good decision when he decided to propose to Paulina. They have two sons together, Jonathan and Oliver.
In the eighties and nineties it was impossible to look at a magazine and not see Paulina Porizkova. The years have definitely been kind to the blue-eyed beauty, who looked just as gorgeous here as she did three decades ago.
Jamie Lee Curtis and Christopher Guest
These two celebrity lovebirds have been married for THIRTY years already. So it's quite obvious that they are the runaway winners on this list! Jamie revealed that she fell in love with Christopher after she saw a photo of him from a movie called "This Is Spinal Tap." In an interview with Rolling Stone, the actress noted that she told her friend Debra Hill that she was going to marry Guest after seeing the photo. What's amazing is that she actually ended up marrying him just five months after that.
The couple tied the know on December 18, 1984. They have been happily married ever since. They have two adopted children together, a daughter and a son. Jamie has previously stated that although her and Christopher are two very different people, they get along really well. In an interview with The Daily Beast, she revealed that although they don't have a lot in common, they both love the golden age of movies, and that they spend a lot of time watching films together.
Janet Jackson and Matthew McConaughey
Oops, we've never heard of this. The two met at the 2002 Grammys and had a short-lived fling. Long before meeting his wife, Camila Alves, Matthew was romantically involved with quite a few different celebrities (such as Sandra Bullock, Ashley Judd, and Penelope Cruz), one of which happened to be Janet Jackson. Considering that they were both incredibly physically attractive at the time and arguably in their best shape, it comes as no surprise that they immediately got attracted to each other.
They hit it off at the Grammys and even took a few pictures backstage. After the ceremony, they headed off to Janet's Bel Air residence, where they spend the night. Although he initially denied that anything happened between them, he later revealed that did more than just talk at her house.
Julia Roberts and Liam Neeson
Now here's a relationship that you most likely never had a clue happened. At one point of her life Julia probably had a penchant for older men. The then 19-year old Roberts had a brief relationship with her 35-year old co-star in Satisfaction. Despite the fact that they were dating for nearly two years, very little is known about their relationship. We only know that they met while filming Satisfaction and that they lived together briefly before going their separate ways.
Liam managed to find the love of his life later on, actress Natasha Richardson. Unfortunately, Natasha passed away after being involved in a skiing accident. They were married for 15 years. Liam has two sons with her. On the other hand, Julia is happily married to cameraman Daniel Moder. They have been married for 15 years, and have three kids together.
Josh Charles and Sheryl Crow
Now, here's something that you probably had no idea ever happened. For a short time period, Sheryl and Josh actually dated. Sheryl brought Josh to the 2003 Grammys as her date but they eventually broke up shortly thereafter. No one has any idea for how long they were exactly dating or even if they were ever too serious.
Ten years after they broke up, Josh went on to marry author and ballet dancer Sophie Flack. The two never really shared too much information about their relationship. In fact, it's not even known when they actually started dating. Their wedding ceremony was held at a private residence in Manhattan, and guests included only their closest family and friends. On the other hand, Sheryl never really found "the one." Although her life was filled with a number of different high-profile relationships, she never really settled. However, it's worth noting that she too enjoys a family life, as she adopted two boys.
Jeff Goldblum and Kristin Davis
The 12-year age difference didn't hinder these two from getting together but it's probably what eventually broke them up. Not much is known about the relationship between Jeff and Kristin, apart from the fact that they briefly dated in 2002. Despite the fact that it didn't work out between them, they both seem to live a happy life now. Jeff was married twice before he began dating Kristin, and married once more after, while Davis never got married, but still has an adopted daughter, with whom she really enjoys spending time with.
Although there was a 12-year age difference between Kristin and Jeff, the famous actor now found an even younger wife. Namely, he married gymnast Emilie Livingston in 2014, who is 31 years younger than him! The couple had a son in 2015. This January, Goldblum revealed that Emilie is currently carrying their second child.
Scott Foley and Jennifer Garner
Jennifer met and fell in love with Scott in 1998, while they were filming a movie called "Felicity." The two quickly developed feeling for each other and got married just two years later. However, their marriage didn't last very long. Namely, they announced that they were separated in 2003. Jennifer then filed for divorce, citing that they had some irreconcilable differences that they simply couldn't settle. Their divorce was finalized in 2004.
They didn't talk about their relationship and divorce for a long time, but in 2013 Jennifer told the Daily Mail what actually happened. She noted that despite the fact that he's a really great guy, they simply didn't stand a chance. In her words, they "imploded." She only had kind words to say about him and it looks like they are both in a good place now. Garner has three kids with Ben Affleck, while Scott also has three children with his wife Marika Dominczyk.
Jason Mamoa and Lisa Bonet
Whoa! This came as a shocker since we didn't know these two have been married since 2007. Looks like the Cosby kid and the future Aquaman did hit it off. Lisa Bonet, formerly married to Lenny Kravitz, and Jason Momoa, who have two children together, have been dating since 2005, and were later married in 2007. The 6'4" stud towers over his 5'2" sweetheart and their relationship seems to be going strong with some minor hiccups here and there.
The two met through mutual friends who thought that they would be absolutely perfect for each other. Their friends were right, since the pair immediately hit it off upon meeting each other. Prior to them getting married, they had a daughter named Lola Iolani Momoa. In 2008, they welcomed their second child, a boy named Nakoa-Wolf Manakauapo Namakaeha Momoa.
