Former model Sibi Blazic was working as Winona Ryder’s personal assistant when she met Christian Bale. They met in 2000 and fell for each other hard, and soon went to Las Vegas to elope and tie the knot. The funny thing is that “The Dark Knight” star was not even planning on getting married before he met Blazic.
He told The Sydney Morning Herald, “Everyone was divorced in my family, so I didn’t have very healthy ideas about marriage.” Their daughter, Emmeline, was born in 2005, and their son, Joseph, was born in 2014. They are still happily married almost two decades later.
Howard Stern – Beth Ostrosky
The infamous talk show host is known for his outrageous humor, therefore, it is no surprise that Howard Stern asked his longtime girlfriend, Beth Ostrosky, to marry him while on air. The proposal took place on Valentine’s Day in 2007, and the couple were wed in New York in October 2008. He actually met Ostrosky while she was on a blind date with another guy!
This was Stern’s second marriage. He was married to Alison Berns for over twenty years, and the couple had three children together. Stern and Ostrosky don’t have any children, but they have six cats. They have been happily married for twenty years, he still does his radio show, and she is an animal activist.
Ben Stiller – Christine Taylor
Ben Stiller and Christine Taylor met on the set of the television show “Heat, Vision, and Jack.” They started spending time together and tied the knot just one year later in Hawaii, in May 2000. They have two children, Ella Olivia Stiller and Quinlin Dempsey Stiller.
When not raising their children, the couple often starred together in hilarious comedies, such as, "Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story," "Zoolander," "Zoolander 2," "Tropic Thunder," "Arrested Development," and "Curb Your Enthusiasm." Sadly, after 17 years of marriage, the couple announced their separation in 2017 but ended up reconciling after living together during the pandemic.
Bruce Springsteen – Julianne Phillips
Best known for her portrayal of Frankie on the television show "Sisters," actress Julianne Philips met singer Bruce Springsteen in LA when she was 24 years old. He was very impressed with her, and they married in 1985, but their marriage was rocky from the start.
The couple separated in 1987 and eventually got a divorce in 1989. Bruce paid tribute to their relationship in his album "Tunnel of Love." Bruce then found love with fellow musician Patti Scialfa. They were together for several years and decided to make it official after their first son was born. They got married in 1991, have had two more children, and are still going strong.
Burt Reynolds – Loni Anderson
Back in the 1980s, Burt Reynolds and Loni Anderson were one of the most glamorous couples in Hollywood. They dated for six years and then married in 1988 in an intimate ceremony with five media helicopters trying to get some footage. They had one son, and for a while, things seemed to be going well. However, just five years later, they filed for divorce.
The whole thing became a media circus, and it took them over two decades to finish sorting out their finances. Accusations were lobbied by both sides, and Reynolds summed things up by telling People that he shouldn’t have married an actress, saying, “That was a really dumb move on my part.” Sadly, Reynolds passed away in 2018.
