We’re used to seeing rich and popular men alongside women who invariably look like supermodels. But there are, in fact, numerous famous gentlemen whose partners don’t fit ordinary beauty standards.
We at Think About Network believe in true love, and we’ve found eight famous men who ignored all the stereotypes about how their partner “ought” to look.
Hugh Jackman and Deborra-Lee Furness
This guy could probably have any woman on the planet. However, his heart has belonged for almost 20 years to Deborra-Lee. She’s older than her husband by 13 years, but the couple doesn’t see this as a barrier to love.
Misha Collins and Victoria Vantoch
The long-held love of Misha Collins for Victoria Vantoch resulted in their marriage in 2002. She is a scientist and journalist, and the couple shared their school years together. Now they have two children and are extremely happy together.
Josh Holloway and Yessica Kumal
The star of Lost has been married to Yessica, who is from Indonesia, for almost 13 years now. The actor truly deserves the title of a model family man. He doesn’t demand too much of his wife, and, despite his busy work schedule, he finds lots of time for his daughter and young son.
Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Sam Taylor-Johnson
This couple’s love story is amazing. Aaron and Sam found each other and have now been happily married for 5 years, despite the condemnation and prejudice — for Sam is 23 years older than her husband. This fact in no way impedes Aaron from gazing upon his wife with eyes full of love or from being a good father and supporting his partner in everything.
Chris Noth and Tara Wilson
Well-known to every woman around the world for his role in Sex and the City, Chris Noth chose a woman called Tara Wilson as his soulmate. She worked as a waitress in a club he belonged to and waited for him for more than 10 years. They’re now happily married and also successful business partners.
Matt Damon and Luciana Barroso
Once, during filming in Miami, Matt met a pretty young brunette with Argentinian roots — and she turned out to be the future Mrs. Damon. Luciana worked in a local bar. In 2007, they were married, and now the happy couple has three charming children.
Ethan Hawke and Ryan Shawhughes
Ethan’s marriage to one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood — Uma Thurman — collapsed when the actress learned of the romantic relationship between him and their nanny, Ryan Shawhughes. In 2008, Ethan did the honest thing and married Ryan. Now the pair is inseparable.
Pierce Brosnan and Keely Shaye Smith
Agent 007 didn’t choose a spy but a journalist called Keely Shaye Smith to be his partner. He had been dating her for seven years. In 2001, they had two children, and now they enjoy life in a house by the Atlantic ocean, paying no attention to the nasty comments that are sometimes made about Keely’s appearance. “She’s one in a million,“ says Pierce. ”I’m so glad to have found her.”
