14 Celebrity Couples Who No One Believed In, but They Proved That True Love Does Exist
There are no rules in love. And it is possible to find a soul mate in someone who, for all intents and purposes, shouldn’t be right for us. These celebrities are living proof of it. We looked back at famous couples whose compatibility was the source of doubt for everyone, but they disregarded all conventions and dove deep into their happiness, proving the rest of the world wrong.
Victoria and David Beckham
David and Victoria met when they were both in their early 20s. Young and wildly successful, they got married almost immediately, causing a stir. This year, the parents of four are celebrating the 26th anniversary of their relationship: “David and I have nothing to prove. We love each other, look out for each other, and are strong as both partners and parents.”
Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck
Bennifer 2.0 made a lot of noise. The couple’s unexpected reunion after 20 years ended in a lavish wedding. However, even after the ceremony, the haters didn’t stop speculating about the stars’ impending breakup and making their unfavorable predictions about it. Lopez and Affleck, on the other hand, don’t seem to care about the gossip.
Alison Brie and Dave Franco
Dave and Alison met at Mardi Gras in New Orleans when they were just looking to have a good time. The actors have been having a good time together for over 11 years, only now they’re married and raising their fur babies.
Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher
It took Milla and Ashton 15 years of knowing each other to see in one another a romantic partner. Everyone doubted their intentions were serious, and even the couple themselves thought that their dating wouldn’t turn into anything serious. That was 11 years ago. Today, the couple is raising two children and supporting each other in sickness and in health.
Kate Middleton and Prince William
The royal couple has had its ups and downs. They even briefly split up but quickly realized they were much better together. The couple is celebrating their 12th wedding anniversary this year, and it seems that the union has only grown stronger over time.
Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas
The public still looks distrustfully at couples with a big age difference, and Michael is a quarter of a century older than Catherine. However, time has shown that this marriage is not afraid of other people’s gossip. The lovers have been married for over 20 years, and a brief separation in 2013 opened their eyes to the fact that they just can’t be apart.
Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker
The punk band drummer and the eldest of the Kardashian sisters were hard to imagine as friends, let alone as a couple. And the fact that Barker once had a thing for another sister, Kim, made the romance almost impossible. Against all odds, Travis and Kourtney are happily married now.
Rita Ora and Taika Waititi
The singer and director’s union raised many eyebrows, and the news that Rita and Taika got married completely blew up the Internet. Incidentally, the small ceremony was kept secret. The couple announced that they were married five months after the wedding.
Renée Zellweger and Ant Anstead
At first, Renée and Ant’s union might have seemed hard to believe. Luckily, the actress and the car show host ignored all preconceptions. Two years have passed since they met on Celebrity IOU Joyride, and Anstead and Zellweger still can’t take their eyes off each other.
Chloe Bridges and Adam DeVine
Fun-loving Adam DeVine and the beautiful Chloe Bridges fell in love on the set of The Final Girls in 2014. The actor himself jokes that he wasn’t hot enough when they first met, but that didn’t stop Chloe. She loves Adam no matter what shape he’s in.
Olivia Munn and John Mulaney
Olivia and John got together almost immediately after Mulaney’s divorce from Anna Marie Tendler. Munn had every chance of being branded a homewrecker, but now no one doubts that John and Olivia are made for each other, and for their son Malcolm.
Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake
Justin and Jessica have been together for over 15 years. For a while, they were on and off, but after reuniting for good, they quickly formalized their relationship. The media talked about Timberlake’s infidelity and Biel’s introverted nature, but the couple isn’t concerned with gossip and other people’s opinions. They’re totally focused on their children and creative projects.
Isla Fisher and Sacha Baron Cohen
Isla and Sasha have been together for over 20 years. The couple lives in Australia and is raising three children, but people are still surprised to hear that Borat and Now You See Me stars are actually married in real life. By their own admission, they have the same sense of humor.
Rachel Weisz and Daniel Craig
The legendary James Bond star found “the one” in Weisz. But the couple doesn’t flaunt their relationship. In one of her interviews, Weisz attributed this decision to the unequal nature of their union. According to the actress, Daniel is “too famous.”
