Although Mick Jagger and Jerry Hall only married in 1991, the two were a thing way back in the late 1970s. They met each other when each was involved with somebody else. However, that never stopped them from having a fling. The stunning model and A-class rock star dated for more than ten years before deciding to tie the knot.
Unsurprisingly, Jagger couldn’t remain faithful to his wife, and almost two decades after the two united, Hall filed for divorce. The couple have four children together. Jagger and Hall were (and forever be) one of the industry’s most iconic and talked about couples who embody what the 1970s were all about.
Jessica Lange and Mikhail Baryshnikov
One of the most stylish and elegant couples in the 1970s was undoubtedly the respected American actress Jessica Lange and Mikhail Baryshnikov, the phenomenal Russian dancer. They accompanied one another for six years, from 1976 until 1982; however, their relationship never really ended. They remained good friends until this day.
Back in her heyday, Lange was a successful actress and was frequently entrusted with portrayals of iconic American women, and her performances gained her several awards, including her Oscar-winning role of Carly in "Blue Sky." Baryshnikov was an outstanding classical ballet dancer of the 1970s who later on became a dance director.
Diana Ross and Gene Simmons
Not all celeb couples were in the limelight during the 1970s. Some preferred to stay low-key and concentrate on what was going on in their private lives and not outside of their home. Diana Ross and Gene Simmons were one of them. They kept a low profile while they dated.
They met while Simmons was still dating Cher. He ended up dating Ross until 1984. She was a rising singer and movie star, and he was a musician that reportedly said that Ross kept him on his feet. He loved her confidence, and he adored her self-esteem. However, two years into their relationship, they broke up.
Mick Jagger and Marianne Faithfull
Marianne Faithfull came from a family of intelligent professors and European noblemen. She was considered upper class and was expected to mix with her kind. Noted for her distinctive voice, the beautiful singer and songwriter met Andrew Loog, who was The Rolling Stones' manager, and the route to Jagger was paved.
Jagger and Faithfull were together for a little over three years, and it is thought that she was involved not only with Mick but with a few other Stones. Her popularity was further enhanced by her film roles, but eventually, their very public relationship reached an inevitable breaking point, and they broke up.
Jane Fonda and Roger Vadim
Jane Fonda and Roger Vadim were married in 1965. She was a rising movie star, and he was one of the more vibrant filmmakers to emerge from the French cinema scene of the 1960s. He was known for having many lovers before and after marrying Fonda. Amongst those women were Catherine Deneuve and Brigitte Bardot.
They first became an item in 1963 and married two years later in 1965. At the time, there were rumors going around about their relationship being unhealthy at times. However, it remained one of the most iconic ones of that era. In 1973, seven years after tieing the knot, the two went their separate ways.
