Making relationships work is never easy, but in Hollywood, romances tend to fall by the wayside fast. It seems increasingly rare to find a celebrity couple who are able to stay together and stand the test of time. Luckily, there are a number of well-paired celebs who show their fans (and their haters) that real love is possible!
Here are some of the longest-lasting celebrity soul mates:
Kate Middleton and Prince William
These newlyweds have been together for years and they have set the standard for how famous couples should conduct themselves in public. They are respectful and admiring of each other, and they simply glow in each other’s presence.
Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn
I think most of us would be delighted to achieve the 20-plus-year relationship Goldie has with Kurt — which they've done without the official "I do," mind you. Goldie gets extra kudos for lassoing herself a younger man, especially since Kurt Russell, to this day, could bring most women to their knees.
David and Victoria Beckham
Gorgeous couple David and Victoria have been together for more than ten years and have four beautiful kids together. Whether David is sitting front row at a fashion show with her or she is sitting front row at his soccer game, they always support each other.
Matthew Broderick and Sarah Jessica Parker
Broadway and movie actor Matthew Broderick has the living, breathing Carrie Bradshaw (well, sort of) as his wife. Although "Sex in the City" is her claim to fame, family life is her passion. These two are happily raising three children together.
Joy Behar and Steve Janowitz
After years of resisting marriage, Joy finally decided to take the plunge…although, since they have already been together for 29 years, something tells me that this pair is already living happily ever after.
Warren Beatty and Annette Bening
The one-time bad boy and his beautiful wife make you believe a leopard can change his spots — when the right woman comes along. These two smack of soul mates and seem happily settled in with the four children they've had in less than ten years.
Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson
How can such a big Hollywood star be so normal? And so happily married!
Jerry Stiller and Anne Meara
This is my favorite long-running couple who have devoted a lifetime to being funny and laughing at their differences.
Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman
Their marriage is as old as the beginning of Tony Danza's career in Taxi. This Hollywood couple exhibits the kind of glue people in Hollywood just don't get enough of.
Barack and Michelle Obama
Despite being the president and First Lady, Barack and Michelle seem to have a down-to-earth relationship. Comfortable and jocular with one another during interviews, it’s easy to see that these two are best friends as well as lovers.
Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick
Married for 23 years, this duo is so close that Kyra recently showed off their “family” tattoo, a tribute to her husband and two children. The couple have also famously stated that their secret to a great marriage is to “keep the fights clean and the sex dirty.” Hear, hear!
