Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi, 20+ Years

Portia de Rossi and Ellen Degeneres are genuinely a couple goals. They have been dating for fifteen of their nearly twenty years of friendship. In 2000, when same-sex relationships were still mostly forbidden, the two met at a social event. They began dating in 2004 but didn't publicly announce their relationship until 2005. The two eventually were married in 2008 once the prohibition against same-sex unions was abolished. Although there are rumors of divorce from time to time, Degeneres has stated that “there's not one ounce of truth to any of it.”

Julia Roberts and Danny Moder, 21 Years

It's incredible that an actress as well-known and in-demand as Julia Roberts has been able to maintain a happy marriage for so long. Despite appearing in films like Pretty Woman and Notting Hill, Roberts has no plans to divorce her husband Danny Moder any time soon. When they first met, Moder was married and working as a cameraman on the set of one of her movies. She simply had to remain with him despite everything.

Sacha Baron Cohen and Isla Fisher, 21 Years

We're aware that Isla Fisher and Sacha Baron Cohen initially strike you as an odd couple, but after you see them together, you'll see why. They first connected in 2002 while attending a party in Sydney, Australia, and started dating right away. By 2004, they were engaged, and when Fisher embraced Judaism, they were married in Paris six weeks later. The couple had a modest, private wedding because it was "very important to me to have a beautiful ritual celebrated with my family and friends." With their two kids and son, the couple now divides their time between Los Angeles and London.

Maggie Gyllenhaal and Peter Sarsgaard, 21 Years

The kind of relationship that Maggie Gyllenhaal and Peter Sarsgaard have is rare; it is so genuine, so trustworthy, and so lovely. Sarsgaard and Jake Gyllenhaal met and started dating in 2002 because Jake is close friends with Maggie's younger brother. Ramona, their oldest daughter, was born in 2006, despite the fact that they were married in May 2009. Gloria Ray, Gyllenhaal and Sarsgaard's second daughter, was born in 2012. The family is content to reside in a stunning Brooklyn brownstone with four stories.

Christian Bale and Sibi Blažić, 23 Years

Christian Bale and Sibi Blazic, a very reclusive couple, have been married for 20 years and have two children together. Before he met her, the award-winning actor had no interest in getting married because everyone in his family had divorced. The former model, however, transformed his perspective on love. When she was serving as Winona Ryder's personal assistant, a friend of Bale's, they first became acquainted. They eloped in January 2000 after falling in love quite rapidly. These two are incredibly in love, despite the fact that not much is known about their relationship.

Finally, Adams and Gallo said "I do" in their traditional spring wedding after thirteen years of joyful love.

Victoria and David Beckham, 24 Years

Despite the fact that they are frequently the subject of unsettling rumors and divorce accusations due to their famous status. Just two years after they started dating, in 1999, the professional footballer and pop singer/fashion designer got married. However, it is clear that such reports were only the hopes of people who wanted the two attractive young stars for themselves after four lovely children and over twenty years of anniversaries with never-ending protestations of love for one another.

Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber, 25 Years

It's weird to consider that Cindy Crawford and Richard Gere were previously wed. Despite the fact that it didn't work out, the supermodel eventually wed Rande Gerber, a close friend. The couple wed in 1998 and have been together ever since. Gerber claims that their marriage is primarily a result of their friendship. We were friends when we first met, and we still are.

She remembers the first time they went out together fondly: "I met him at a dinner and expected a bearded mountain-man type, and he had cut off all his hair and was clean-shaven," Streisand revealed in an interview.

Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith, 26 Years

There is no doubting the unconventional nature of Will and Jada Pinkett Smith's relationship. Yes, there have been claims that they are getting a divorce and even an open marriage. But they've put a lot of effort into making it function. If there is a secret, Will replied, "I'd say it's that we never tried working on our relationship." We only ever improved ourselves separately before presenting a better version of ourselves to one another.

Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick, 26 Years

Sarah Jessica Parker hasn't experienced the same difficulties in real life that her Sex and the City character has in maintaining a stable relationship. A few decades ago, Parker's brother introduced her to Matthew Broderick, and the two quickly became engaged. I adore the fact that he is the father of my kids, she remarked. And thanks to him, there is this entire other universe that I adore.

Felicity Huffman and William H. Macy, 26 Years

Felicity answered yes when William proposed, despite the fact that they had a lengthy breakup in the 1990s. Felicity was William's "dream girl" ever since they got married in 1997, he claims. Sophia and Georgia, the couple's two children, were born to them. William was by Felicity's side when she was accused of being involved in a college admissions scam in recent years, which landed her in legal difficulties.

Hugh Jackman and Deborra-Lee Furness, 27 Years

In terms of renown, this connection can be a tad one-sided. But Hugh Jackman and Deborra-Lee Furness' union is, quite literally, one for the ages. The two got married in 1996, barely a year after they first met on the set of the Australian television program Correlli. I developed a serious crush on her since she was the celebrity, he said. It turns out, though, that Furness felt the same way, and they've been dating ever since.

Rachel Zoe and Rodger Berman, 27 Years

When Rachel Zoe was just 19 years old in 1991, she met Rodger Berman, the love of her life. When they first met, the future couple were both working in eateries. She was sporting a large red lip coated with her signature M.A.C. Chili lipstick when he first encountered her, and she was sporting a tight black short dress, high-heeled heels, stick-straight hair, and stick-straight makeup. I had never seen a lady more lovely than she was. They later had two children.

The two eventually were married in 2008 once the prohibition against same-sex unions was abolished.

Lisa Kudrow and Michel Stern, 28 Years

There were other people who found love besides Phoebe and Mike. In actuality, Lisa Kudrow met Michel Stern, a French advertising executive, through him. Even though Stern was already in a relationship when they first met in the late 1980s, Kudrow claims it was love at first sight. Stern had to wait a while before acting in the situation. The pair was married in 1995, just one year after Friends made its NBC debut. So what's the key to their marriage of more than twenty years? Kudrow stated that they "respect each other's independence" in an interview with Glamour.

Joel McHale and Sarah Williams, 29 Years

Being famous while avoiding the spotlight is challenging, but Joel McHale and his wife, Sarah Williams, have done it for more than 20 years. The pair wed in 1996 after meeting right out of college. The pair has avoided the headlines by attending red carpet events together and posting loving images of one another on social media. To be very honest, we believe that the couple and their two boys create the ideal family.

Angela Bassett and Courtney B. Vance, 29 Years

One of Hollywood's most attractive couples for many years, Courtney B. Vance and Angela Bassett appear to be maturing like good wine both together and apart. Although their romance developed into one of Hollywood's best, the pair met at the Yale School of Drama, and it wasn't quite love at first sight. For many years, the two remained acquaintances, but it took over ten years for things to go romantic. They started dating in 1994, and in 2007 they married to formally end their relationship.

Elton John and David Furnish, 30 Years

Elton John and David Furnish have been a pair for almost 30 years and are now "couple goals." When the pair first met in 1993, they clicked right away. They first connected over dinner at Elton John's place. David, who had just turned 31, lived a very different lifestyle from Elton. Elton proposed after they had been dating for 12 years, and they were married as soon as same-sex unions were made legal in the UK in 2014. Zachary was born to David and Elton through surrogacy in 2010, and Elijah was born to them in 2013.

Michelle Pfeiffer and David E. Kelley, 30 Years

Believe it or not, David E. Kelly and Michelle Pfeiffer went bowling on their blind date in 1993. They got married ten months after they started dating, which is a normal quick relationship. It comes as a bit of a surprise that this love tale has endured for more than 30 years when so many Hollywood relationships seem to start and finish in the span of a single blink. Sources claim that Kelly's encouragement was what really impacted Michelle.

Sting and Trudie Styler, 31 Years

Shakespeare is the epitome of romance, after all. Shakespeare was the first literary work that ever brought Sting and Trudie Styler together. They fell in love in 1982 after meeting at the Royal Shakespeare Company, but they didn't get married for another ten years. They waited for marriage, but they didn't wait to have kids. Only one of their several kids was born after they were married. Trudie continued to perform with the Royal Shakespeare Company, while Sting moved on to pursue a career in music as the lead singer of the well-known rock group The Police.

On their first date, he immediately fell in love with her, but they remained friends up until the very last day of filming. It comes as a bit of a surprise that this love tale has endured for more than 30 years when so many Hollywood relationships seem to start and finish in the span of a single blink.

Michael J. Fox & Tracy Pollan, 36 Years

Hollywood may cause some relationships to fail, but it also has a way of bringing people together, as was the case with Michael J. Fox and Tracy Pollan, who really first met while filming Family Ties as the lovers Allen and Ellen. Even though they had a few kissing sequences for the show, they took their time falling in love. They didn't understand they could be the pair they kept playing in movies until they co-starred in Bright Lights, Big City in 1987.

The Magnum P.I. actor began by discussing how wonderful his marriage has been. He wished for her to marry someone she liked as well as someone she loved.

Jamie Lee Curtis and Christopher Guest, 39 years

One of Jamie Lee Curtis' numerous talents is undoubtedly making an audience laugh. She is noted for playing a variety of characters, from the deeply touching to the very angsty. It comes as no surprise that she is wed to legendary mockumentary actor Christopher Guest.

But ever since they said "I do" in 1984 and up until the present, the world has been moved by their fidelity and perseverance in marriage. According to Curtis, "I've always put my family first and that's just the way it is." Together, they have adopted two kids.

Cranston, who plays Walter 'Heisenberg' White on Breaking Bad, says treatment had a significant role in his real-life marriage to Dearden. According to the actor, "I occasionally see a [therapist] when I'm feeling tense or anxious. We see a couples therapist together, my wife and I. We have agreed that neither of us may oppose if the other feels like going. Now, if Walter and Skyler had only remembered to take notes...

Sam Elliott and Katharine Ross, 39 Years

When Katharine Ross was filming Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid with Paul Newman and Robert Redford in 1969, Sam Elliott and Ross first got to know one another. Elliott had a relatively tiny part, thus the two didn't really reunite until almost ten years later for the horror movie The Legacy. They started dating in 1978 and were married in 1984. Despite Ross' fifth marriage, it appeared like she had finally met her true love. Despite the fact that "you've got to work at it [marriage]," as Elliott explains, they are still going strong 37 years later.

Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell, 40 Years

Even though Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell aren't married, they do have a lot of experience in this area. They are after all among Hollywood's most recognizable couples, demonstrating the adage "just because you like it doesn't mean you have to put a ring on it." However, it is clear that such reports were only the hopes of people who wanted the two attractive young stars for themselves after four lovely children and nearly twenty years of anniversaries with never-ending protestations of love for one another.

Keith Richards and Patti Hansen, 40+ years 

Model Patti Hansen and rocker Keith Richards allegedly first crossed paths in 1979; it's said that Hansen was unaware of Richards' identity at the time. Four years later, on Richards' 40th birthday, December 18, 1983, the pair was married. Their differences may be seen in the couple's images nearly as clearly as their love for one another. Theodora Dupree and Alexandra Nicole, the couple's kids, were born. Following in their mother's footsteps, both girls are now breaking into the world of high fashion.

Bono and Alison Hewson, 41 Years

In 1982, Bono, the lead singer of U2, one of the most popular bands in history, wed Alison. The pair credits their successful marriage to the fact that they both have a strong work ethic and respect each other's aspirations. Despite being married for almost 40 years, there was tension in the marriage in 1986 as a result of the band's recording of Joshua Tree. The two were able to resolve their differences and became deeply in love, demonstrating that being a rock star does not preclude pursuing a family.

Samuel L. Jackson and LaTanya Richardson, 43 years

It's incredible to consider that Samuel L. Jackson is still appearing in so many big-budget movies at the age of 70. He's not just as productive as ever in Hollywood; he's also been wed for over 40 years! Jackson has been supported by his faithful wife ever since they wed in 1980, when they wed LaTanya Richardson.

When she was 22 and Dustin was 38, they reconnected as childhood pals. Lisa freely admits that she is mostly cut off from the entertainment industry and that she "just happens to be married to an actor." Although she knew she wouldn't practice law, she had a law degree and wanted to do something for herself.

Meryl Streep and Don Gummer, 45 Years

It's difficult to say if Meryl Streep's status as one of the finest actors in history or her union with Don Gummer have endured longer. The Mamma Mia diva and hubby Gummer have been married for more than 40 years. Regarding her lengthy marriage, Streep has made the decision to maintain a low profile. The fact that the couple is parents to four children means something, though, so that is what we do know.

Just when Jeff Bridges was beginning to gain popularity and was considering a potentially large career, he discovered that he was the star of another major love drama: his personal relationship with the future wife. He fell in love with waitress Susan when they were working on the Rancho Deluxe set in 1975, a country movie.
The two had to make a significant choice after spending just one summer together as the movie concluded. They were married in 1977 even though Jeff wasn't ready and he didn't want to lose the girl. They went on to have three children and live happily ever after.

Ron and Cheryl Howard, 48 Years

Even though Ron Howard and author Cheryl Alley have been wed since 1975, they still appear to be in good spirits today. Two of their four lovely children—although the father has now switched to directing—have even sought acting careers of their own.

He remarked of his wife, "I felt incredibly lucky when we met. We were teens; it shouldn't have worked, so it's ridiculous. We were young when we were married, which also shouldn't have worked, but it did," he remarked.

Christopher and Georgianne Walken, 54 Years

Marriage and acting don't naturally mix, which is why movie stars are infamous for having a difficult time juggling their personal and professional life. Christopher Walken, who is known for being excellent at everything, is come to disprove that notion.

Since he began acting in the 1950s, he has been in over 100 films, but he and his wife, Georgianne, have remained happily married for over 50 years during that time. Her work as a casting director in Hollywood also takes up much of her time.

Dolly Parton and Carl Dean, 58 Years

When Carl and Dolly first met, they fell in love. Their love tale sounds like a country song; they met when she was just 18 and he was 21; it was Parton's first day in Nashville; they met outside of a laundry. The pair was hitched two years later. Only Parton's mother, the minister, and his wife were present during the ceremony. The couple does not have children, but they like treating their nieces and Miley Cyrus, Dolly Parton's well-known goddaughter.
