When it comes to Hollywood, love is usually short-lived. No one is to blame, though. When packed schedules and criticism combine, the pressure often gets too much to handle. Mix typical celeb challenges in the blend and you have the perfect recipe for breakups. So, every time a star couple needs time apart or just needs to split once and for all due to pressure, it’s always understandable.
It’s just one of those downsides that come with the job. However, not all hope in love as a celebrity is lost. There are some stars who have met their soulmates in people who belong in the field and have been able to keep the magic in their relationships with them alive. These couples have stayed together despite the odds, with their significant others regardless of the ups and downs, smiling along the way. And of course, giving us all #CoupleGoals.
2018 has been a rocky year for several celebs. Last year as well, several star couples that had been together for so long decided to go their separate ways. We’re looking at Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt. Oh, also Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan.
However, there are several couples who have also managed to keep their relationships in shape. These Hollywood couples have been together for years, but nothing has been able to tear them down. Wondering which couples, we’re talking about? Here are 7 star couples that have held together through thick and thin – they’ve been happily married for years. We really hope they never ditch one another.
Hugh Jackman and Deborra-lee Furness
They have been together since 1996 and in today’s Hollywood, that’s a big deal. Hugh Jackman and his wife Deborra-lee Furness got hitched only a year after they set eyes on one another. If that’s not true love, we don’t know what is. The 49-year-old Wolverine actor says that what has kept their relationship alive is that their love story came before his fame. He also said, “we can kind of see all the ups and downs for what they are. Our priority is our family, and we’re there for each other no matter what.”
Beyonce and Jay-Z
They have had their sad moments but these two have been together for a looong time now. Despite all the cheating and infidelity rumors surrounding the rapper and a prominent age gap between the two artists, Beyonce and Jay-Z are still together. We can’t help but hope that that doesn’t change. They have three kids together and have always been open about their love for each other with Jay-Z having called the Crazy In Love singer his “soulmate.”
Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi
Ellen is one of the best TV show hostesses that we have, and her love story is just as epic as her. One of the most famous queer couples, she and Portia de Rossi have been together since 2004. In 2008 they got married and they’ve been going strong for sure. These two seem to be made for each other. They are not too public about their relationship but their love for one another is as clear as day. Talking about Portia, Ellen said, “I can’t imagine not being married. I have my best friend, the person I want to spend time with more than anybody else in the world.”
Chrissy Teigen and John Legend
Chrissy and John met each other on the set of the All Of Me singer’s music video. Earlier this year, they welcomed their second child, a son together. It’s clear that these two are in love with them expressing their love on social media as well. The couple tied the knot in 2013 and have since been inseparable. Our happy ears haven’t even heard a single rumor regarding any breakup. John Legend told the media that it was Chrissy’s sense of humor that captivated him and made him fall for her.
Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds
Here’s a favorite: Blake Likely and Ryan Reynolds. Not only have the Deadpool actor and Gossip Girl actress stood the test of time but they are also decidedly one of the most good-looking couples around. They share two daughters together and are always serving fans with doses of their sweet and clever romance when they take to social media to roast one another. Talking about their relationship, Ryan said, “we were buddies for a long time, which I think is the best way to have a relationship, to start as friends.”
Amal and George Clooney
So many girls had a crush on George Clooney, but he chose Amal. Of course, he did. She’s gorgeous, a good-hearted human being who has an impeccable fashion sense. The lawyer and the actor have been married since 2014. They have two kids together. While they manage to escape paparazzi attention, every time the camera catches them together the internet’s obsession is renewed. Talking about how they met, George said, “She was a friend of a friend who came to visit and then I chased her for many months, calling and writing, those kinds of things.” OKAY, SO CUTE.
David and Victoria Beckham
People think that Victoria Beckham’s style and personality have changed a lot over the years. But one thing that has not changed is her love and commitment to her husband, David Beckham. Beckham, who is a fan-favorite, read the wedding vows with the former Spice Girls bandmate in 1999 even though their romance had birthed in 1997. They have four kids together. While talking about their relationship, David once said, “Of course, we have arguments like everybody, but, at the end of the day, I know that I love my wife.”
