We are used to seeing celebrity marriages fall apart all the time, and we can’t blame them. Relationships are hard, but having a relationship with the whole world watching must be even harder. But despite the pressure, there have been some happy celebrity couples withstanding the test of time, media harassment, and even a scandal here and there. These famous couples are the longest-lasting couples in Hollywood, and as it seems, they are here to stay!
Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber: 20 Years Together
No matter how much the years pass, we all probably remember that Cindy Crawford was once married to Richard Gere. But even though their relationship didn’t really work out in the end, she did find love again, marrying Rande Gerber, who was her good friend at the time.
The couple has been inseparable since 1998, having just passed the 20-year mark! Gerber has shared during interviews that their relationship has worked for so long because they are the best of friends!
Kevin Bacon & Kyra Sedgwick: 32 years Together
Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick are easily one of the longest-lasting couples in Hollywood, as they’ve been together for more than 30 years. They have become a couple to envy both amongst fellow Hollywoders, but also for anyone who aspires to stay married for that long.
The lovebirds met on set when they both starred in the TV series Lemon Sky. Back then, Bacon was only 22-years-old. The couple got married in 1988, had two children together and both managed to excel in their careers. That doesn’t mean that they have never had any struggles, just like any couple, they had some challenges. But in the end, they put their love above everything.
Nick Offerman & Megan Mullally: 17 Years Together
In 2000, Nick Offerman and Megan Mullally met as they both acted in a play in the comedic scene. The comedian actors were in different stages of their careers back then, with Offerman struggling to find his big break, while Mullally had already starred in Will & Grace.
The couple married not too long after, and are now going on 17 years together. They have shared before that one of their biggest secrets is that no matter how busy their schedules are, they never stay away from each other for longer than two weeks. Their marriage has been so iconic, that the couple even wrote a book together titled: The Greatest Love Story Ever Told.
Bruce Springsteen & Patti Scialfa: 29 Years Together
Another couple that is an incredible example of long-lasting love, Bruce Springsteen and Patti Scialfa have been together for almost 30 years and are still going strong. It all started when Springsteen invited Scialfa to join them on the road as they toured the world during their “Born in USA” tour.
Apparently, Scialfa was already head over heels for him by then. They have been inseparable since then. They have three kids together, and they built a peaceful and family-oriented life. In fact, Springsteen has written several songs declaring his love for Patty over the years, making us believe that their love is most certainly not going anywhere anytime soon.
Sam Elliott & Katharine Ross: 34 Years Together
Sam Elliott and Katharine Ross met during the filming of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid back in 1969, but apparently, Ross had such a small role in the movie that they barely got to know each other.
They reconnected roughly 10 years later, during the filming of The Legacy. They finally started dating in 1978 and got married in 1984. Just like Scorcese, this was Ross’ fifth marriage, but it seems like fifth time’s the charm, since they have been married for 34 years.
Dolly Parton & Carl Dean: 52 Years Together
According to these lovebirds, it was love at first sight. Dolly Parton was only 18-years-old when she met the love of her life, and Carl Dean was two years older than her. They met just outside of a laundromat, the first day after Parton had moved to Nashville.
They dated for two years until they were ready to tie the knot and start building a life together. It was the smallest and most intimate wedding ever with only three people in attendance: Dolly Parton’s mom, the preacher, and the preacher’s wife. The couple chose not to have kids and to focus on their love and their careers, but they are known to spoil their nieces and, of course, Dolly Parton’s goddaughter, Miley Cyrus.
Billy Ray & Tish Cyrus: 26 Years Together
Billy Ray and Rish Cyrus’ relationship and marriage are a little bit like a movie. Back in 1993, Ray’s record company was completely against him marrying Cyrus. But he chose to not listen to their advice, and followed his heart instead, marrying Cyrus in secret that same year.
At that time, Cyrus was already pregnant with the couple’s second child. Cyrus had previously had two children before her relationship with Ray, who adopted the two kids and raised them as his own. The couple filed for divorce in 2010 but dropped the year after. Ray filed again in 2013, but they dropped it once again after a lot of therapy.
Christian Bale & Sibi Blažić: 20 Years Together
Christian Bale and Sibi Blažić are one of the most private couples in Hollywood, as they have shared very little about their personal lives to the public.
The couple has two children and has been married for over 20 years. Apparently, when they met, Bale had absolutely no interest in getting married, since everyone in his family was divorced. But as they got to know each other, his perspective changed and he was ready to tie the know and to believe in love again.
Martin & Helen Scorsese: 21 Years Together
It’s hard to believe that even though the Hollywood legend has been married to Helen Scorcese for 21 years, this is his fifth marriage. They got married in 1999, and have a daughter together who has acted in The Aviator and The Departed.
But before he married Helen, Martin Scorcese had been married to several women, including Julia Camron and Isabella Rosselini. Unfortunately, none of them were meant to be. Even though Scorcese is so well-known, the couple has managed to keep their life very private.
Rachel Zoe & Rodger Berman: 22 Years Together
Rachel Zoe and Rodger Berman were both working in restaurants when they met for the first time in 1991. Rachel Zoe was only 19-years-old, and she completely fell head over heels for Berman.
Berman also remembers the moment vividly, sharing that she can still picture the first time he saw her, wearing a mini black dress and high-heeled pumps. He even remembers her hairdo and lipstick color! They have two children together and have lived a pretty happy life.
Jerry & Jessica Seinfeld: 19 Years Together
Before Jessica Seinfeld married her current long-time husband, she was married to Eric Nederlander. Even though there were a lot of rumors, no one ever confirmed if their marriage failed because of her tight friendship with Jerry at the time.
The truth is that they got married not very long after Jessica and Eric’s divorce, and have been together ever since. The couple has had three children together over the course of the past two decades.
Samuel L. Jackson & LaTanya Richardson: 38 years Together

Tom Selleck & Jillie Mack: 31 Years Together
One of the most famous and wanted men in Hollywood, sadly for many fans, Tom Selleck and Jillie Mack’s marriage has been going strong for over 30 years. The couple has been victim to several rumors, but they have managed to ignore it all while focusing on their relationship.

Denzel & Pauletta Washington: 35 Years Together
In 1996, Denzel Washingon was labeled the best-looking man at the time. In fact, he had tons of people wishing that he’d be single for a while. But Denzel had other plans.
By then, he was already married to Pauletta, whom he met back in 1977. The couple tied the knot six years later and has been together for 35 years. They have four children together and they even renewed their vows on a trip to South Africa after a few decades of marriage.

Kerry Washington & Nnamdi Asomugha: 7 years Together
The iconic Scandal star has been married to Nnamdi Asomugha for seven years. Kerry Washington, who is known for several roles, but her Olivia Pope character has caught the attention of many, has had an impressive Hollywood career. Nnamdi is a former San Francisco player.

Jim Parsons & Todd Spiewak: 3 years Together
Jim Parsons, Big Bang Theory’s famous and nerdy Sheldon Cooper, has accomplished an enormous amount of worldwide success due to the show. Even though Parsons and Spiewak have been together for nearly 15 years, they only tied the knot in 2017.
Parsons shared that the couple decided to wait that long because being married had never been a huge priority for either of them. But when they finally did get married, Parsons felt that the ceremony had been much more meaningful than expected.
Danny DeVito & Rhea Perlman: 38 years Together
