Matt Damon met Luciana Barroso while he was filming Stuck On You in 2003. Damon stopped at a bar in Miami on his night off where he noticed Barroso bartending. It was love at first sight and the two have been joined at the hip ever since.
The duo married a few years after meeting and their relationship has only grown stronger since then. While raising their four kids, Isabella, Stella, Alexia, and Gia, the couple has maintained a relatively private life. The actor’s life is practically a real-life rom-com!
Conan O'Brien and Liza Powel (Ad Rep)
Comedian Conan O’Brien said he fell in love with his now-wife, Liza Powel the very moment he saw her in the audience while he was taping an episode of his show, Late Night With Conan O’Brien . His now-wife, Liza Powel, appeared on the show in an advertising skit involving Foote, Cone & Belding, where she was working as senior copywriter.
The couple dated for just 18 months before they tied the knot in 2002 in Powel's hometown of Seattle. When asked why he fell in love with his wife, the talk-show host said it was because she is extremely beautiful and that she happens to be a very good person. The pair now have two kids together.
Kelsey Grammer and Kayte Walsh (Flight Attendant)
Kelsey Grammer met Kayte Walsh, a British flight attendant, as she served him coffee at 35,000 feet. While the two didn’t exactly join the mile-high club, they spent a romantic evening in London just a few days later. Although the pair met while Kelsey was still married to Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Camille Grammer, their affair went on for six months.
Grammer allegedly ended his marriage in a text message, marrying Walsh just 15 days after his divorce was finalized. Even though his third marriage went up in flames in front of millions of people on TV, his ex-wife, who has often expressed her resentment towards the couple, has since moved on. Grammar and his new wife are currently happy and enjoying their marriage.
Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes (Actress)
Katie Holmes once said in an interview that she’d always dreamed she’d get married to Tom Cruise and that she would often daydream of the veteran actor before she even met him. Her fantasies soon came true, although they were fleeting. The duo met, fell in love, and just seven weeks later they announced their engagement.
After numerous accusations that the couple was together as a publicity stunt, Cruise felt the need to prove his love by jumping up and down on Oprah's couch yelling about being in love. The video would prove to be just one of the many strange things to come out of their relationship. After a few years of marriage, Cruise and Holmes were rumored to disagree on the actor’s involvement in Scientology and ultimately decided to end their marriage. In addition to no longer having a relationship with Holmes, Cruise hasn’t been seen with his daughter, Suri, since 2013.
Nicolas Cage and Alice Kim (Waitress)
Nicholas Cage married his third wife, waitress Alice Kim, on a private ranch in 2004. After having previously been married (and then divorced) twice to celebrities, it seems the actor decided to explore more down to Earth options. The two met in a restaurant where a 19-year-old Kim was working, and the two moved forward with their relationship quickly. Just a few months after exchanging vows, Kim gave birth to their son, Kal-El, named after Superman himself.
Unfortunately, the marriage didn’t last and they split after eleven years of marriage. Cage was open about his disappointment that their marriage failed, saying in an interview with The Guardian , “It was a shocker for me – I definitely didn’t see it coming...And now it’s like, wow, I’m 54 and I’m single again – I didn’t see that coming! It’s pretty grim.” There were rumors of Kim cheating on the actor, which may have led to the split.
