Nnamdi Asomugha had his breakout performance in 2017 at the Sundance Film Festival for his lead role in Crown Heights. Before that, he was one of the best cornerbacks the NFL has ever seen. His wife, Kerry Washington’s successful career on stage, in film, and on TV has spanned over two decades.
She is admired for playing Olivia Pope on the popular ABC TV series “Scandal,” which earned her a Golden Globe Award for Best Actress. The couple met when Washington performed on Broadway, and Asomugha attended. She informed him she didn’t date athletes, and he responded that he didn’t date actresses. The couple married in 2013, and they have two children.
Meryl Streep and Don Gummer
The way these two met was in the light of some dark circumstances. Streep was mourning the loss of her boyfriend at the time, John Cazale, who passed away too early in life. At the time, her brother Harry came along with a friend - Don. Just six months later, the pair said: “I do.”
Their wedding was a pretty low-key affair, happening in 1978. While he isn’t a “celebrity” in the same way Meryl Streep is, he’s quite a celebrated sculptor! He has been doing him, winning awards, and having his work featured in public commissioned art! Pretty cool!
Emily Ratajkowski & Sebastian Bear-McClard
We don't have exact dates for when this couple, made up of supermodel Emily and actor Sebastian, actually started dating – or even when they got engaged. However, while the dating relationship itself might not have been very long, Ratajkowski apparently kept Sebastian in the friend zone for two years. Or, as she put it, she spent two years vetting him.
The couple tied the knot in a surprise ceremony at New York's City Hall in February 2018. The couple had maintained a quiet and modest love story and managed to keep all of the gossip to themselves. However, Rata and Seb went their separate ways in 2022.
Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell
These two screen veterans are still together after more than 35 years. You might remember the hilarious rom-com 'Overboard,' which saw a snobbish Hamptons-loving socialite suffer from amnesia before being tricked into thinking she was married to the single father of three, played by Kurt Russell.
By that time, the pair had been dating for 5 years, deciding in 1982 that they would never marry and just raise their blended family as “committed partners.” And they’ve been committed partners ever since. Goldie Hawn once told the media that the secret to their partnership was the fact that they’d never walked down the aisle.
Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas
The stunning Catherine Zeta-Jones shocked the world when she and Michael Douglas announced their engagement. The Welsh beauty has taken the leading lady role in many films, from "Entrapment" to "The Mask of Zorro." And Michael Douglas, well, his reputation precedes him – we really don’t have to list his slew of films!
Prominent in Hollywood, the pair have grown from strength to strength and stuck by one another. Despite signing a prenup before saying “I do,” it’s highly unlikely that the pair will need to call in the lawyers, a la "Intolerable Cruelty!" Almost twenty years later, the pair have two kids together and have earned a lavish lifestyle. Cheers to that!
