One of the most enduring Hollywood relationships ever belonged to Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward who met on the set of their movie, The Long, Hot Summer in 19. Ironically, when Joanne caught his eye, Paul was married to his first wife. Obviously Mr. Newman takes wedding very seriously he just realized that he was married to the wrong woman. His wife soon granted him the divorce that would enable him to marry the love of his life. Together they produced three children and lived a happy, faithful life until his death in 2008. The secret to their lasting union was their capability to remain faithful to one another and to make one another laugh.
The couple were introduced by Meryl’s brother, who was a longtime friend of Don’s. Meryl married her artist husband in 1978 and they went on to produce three children together. She has notably thanked him in her acceptance speeches and has remained faithful to him despite her superstar status, which is no easy feat in Hollywood, though they do make it look easy. The secret to their longevity may lie in the fact that they work hard to obtain balance between their personal and expert lives and have set their relationship as a priority. This is one celebrity union that is not rife with scandal. Privacy and normalcy are key.
The couple were high sweethearts in the 1970s but did not marry until 1989 when they shocked everyone by getting hitched on tour while in Las Vegas. Dorothea has been an ardent ally of Jon’s musical career for decades and together they have raised four children. What makes this union special is that despite Jon’s status as a superstar rocker, he has not been linked to any other women since marrying Dorothea.
The couple, whose 21 year age difference has never been an issue for them, met while working on the film Bugsy, in 1991. They began dating soon after but it seems the actor had designs on marrying her from the beginning. This might account for their longevity; after all, Beatty had made a career out of bachelorhood and few thought he would ever commit to just one woman. But he met his match in Benning, who is well known throughout Hollywood as a separate, intelligent and amazingly talented woman. The couple has four children together, the first of whom, Kathleen, was born two months before their 1992 wedding.
The couple was introduced by Sarah’s brother in November, 1991 but didn’t start dating until February 1992. They married in a former synagogue in an Episcopalian ceremony in which the bride wore black. They have one son, James Wilke, born in 2002 and twin daughters, Marion and Tabitha, that were born via surrogate in 2009. Among the secrets to their durability seem to be that they certainly march to their own drummer, fiercely protect the privacy of their family and don’t seem to be threatened by one another’s successes. He is a wildly effective stage actor while she has been a star of stage and screen, most notably in the Sex and the City franchise.
