Hugh Jackman and Deborra-Lee Furness
Hugh Jackman and Deborra-Lee Furness, two Australian actors with a 13-year age gap, are known for having one of the most prosperous relationships in Hollywood. They started their romance in the mid-1990s, demonstrating that age is not a significant factor in determining the success of a relationship.
The wedding rings of the couple bear a unique Sanskrit message, which were traded in Melbourne, Australia on April 11, 1996, shortly after meeting each other. Rather than attempting natural conception, they opted for adoption and welcomed a son and a daughter into their family in 2000 and 2005, respectively.

Matt Damon and Luciana Barroso
Luciana, who is 46 years old, and her husband Matt, who is 51 years old, have maintained their privacy after getting married in 2005. Despite the negative impact of tabloid rumors that can lead to tarnishing the reputation of celebrities and the breakdown of marriages, this has rarely affected their relationship. After eight years of their initial marriage, the couple reaffirmed their commitment by renewing their vows in St. Lucia, a Caribbean island in 2013.
Prior to becoming a biological father, the actor from Ocean’s Eleven assumed the role of stepfather to Alexia Barroso. Subsequently, he and his partner welcomed three children into the world – Isabella in 2006, Gia in 2008, and Stella in 2010. The couple continues to cherish their life together.
Coco and Ice-T

Their 20-year age gap hasn’t affected their apparent deep love for each other, which is evident from their on-screen appearances. Ice-T and Coco Austin joyously welcomed their daughter in 2015.
Over time, their relationship has received a lot of negative feedback. In 2021, the couple marked their 21st year of marriage, and it was unexpected for many to learn that they had been together for such a long time. It is rare for a marriage to endure in this field, but this pair seems to have mastered the art of making it function. As a result, they are commendable.

Brad Paisley and Kimberly Williams
In March 15, 2003, Brad and Kimberly tied the knot in Stauffer Chapel located within the campus of Pepperdine University. The couple has two sons named Jasper Warren, who was born in 2009, and William Huckleberry, who arrived in 2007.

They’ve never gotten married (at least, not that the public knows of) but Paul and Maya do have four children together. Perhaps secrecy is the key to a Hollywood relationship.
Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves
Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves met in 2006 at a club. Matthew has said that the connection was instantaneous. “She showed up, and she moved right to left in front of my eyes across that club.”

Harrison Ford and Calista Flockhart
Harrison Ford met Calista Flockhart (who’s 23 years his junior) at the Golden Globes awards show in 2002. The actors dated for a whopping eight years before getting married. Perhaps that’s the trick, though, as they’re still going strong today.
Calista has an adopted son named Liam, whom Harrison raised along with her. Harrison himself has four children from previous relationships. This is Ford’s third marriage, proving that the third time really is the charm.
LeBron James and Savannah Brinson
Absolutely no one can accuse Savannah Brinson of being a golddigger. That’s because the interior designer has been with her husband, LeBron James, since high school — way before he joined the NBA.
The couple finally got married in 2013 and they’ve done an incredible job of managing LeBron’s newfound fame. Savannah and LeBron have three kids (Bronny, Bryce, and Zhuri) who Savannah is primarily in charge of, due to the basketball player’s demanding schedule.

Melissa McCarthy and Ben Falcone
Melissa McCarthy and Ben Falcone are actors who’ve recently played a couple in the Netflix show God’s Favorite Idiot. Perhaps the reason that their on-screen chemistry worked so well is that they’re actually married in real life.

Pink and Carey Hart

Following along with the latest in celebrity gossip can often leave our heads in a tizz. Celebrity relationships often end before we even realize they began in the first place. However, it helps when some celebrities keep their relationships within the same field, or even within the same friend group. We look at all the celebrities who dated the same people!

In 2010, some of Hollywood’s biggest names — actresses Kate Hudson and Cameron Diaz — were caught up in a love triangle with Yankee Shortstop, A-Rod. Hudson and A-Rod started dating between May and December 2009 where she was a regular visitor at Yankee Stadium.
However, in May 2010, the New York Post reported that Diaz had been spotted leaving A-Rod’s NY penthouse. Not only that but they stated that this was a form of payback after Hudson reportedly hooked up with Diaz’s ex, Justin Timberlake, days after they ended their four-year relationship. Yikes!
Kiefer Sutherland – Julia Roberts – Jason Patric
This dramatic love triangle is something that would make the perfect rom-com! Actors Julia Roberts and Kiefer Sutherland met on the set of the movie Flatliners in 1990, and were due to marry at a ceremony in 1991 at one of the 20th Century soundstages.
However, just two days before her wedding, Roberts flew to Ireland with one of Sutherland’s closest friends. Roberts spent what was supposed to be her wedding day eating turkey burgers with Patric. After they flew home, the two become a couple, however, they eventually split in 1992.
Gwenyth Paltrow – Luke Wilson – Drew Barrymore
After filming Home Fries together — a movie centered around a wife getting revenge on her husband’s extramarital affair — stars Luke Wilson and Drew Barrymore dated for two years. They broke up shortly before they starred in Charlie’s Angels together, where Barrymore even wrote him as Cameron Diaz’s love interest.
After Barrymore and Wilson broke up, Wilson emerged with his new girlfriend, Gwenyth Paltrow, in July 2001. The pair had acted together in Wed Anderson’s The Royal Tenenbaums. The relationship only lasted a year before the pair broke up in 2002.

In 2014, Sheen found love again in comedian and fellow actress Sarah Silverman. Silverman often gushed about how much she loved Sheen saying that “I don’t think I ever really knew what love was.” However, it wasn’t meant to be and the pair split in 2018 after four years due to long distance.
Dianna Agron – Alex Pettyfer – Emma Roberts
After filming the movie Wild Child together, Emma Roberts and Alex Pettyfer took their on-screen romance into the real world in 2007. He was obviously quite smitten as Pettyfer has a tattoo of Robert’s initials inside a heart on his wrist. The two split in 2008.
After gaining attention from the television show, Glee, Dianna Agron found her new beau, Pettyfer, when they acted alongside each other in the thriller I Am Number Four. After less than a year of dating, and despite living together, the two split in 2012.

Cameron Diaz – Sean Combs – Jennifer Lopez
From 1999 to 2001, the biggest celebrity couple was JLo and Puff Daddy, known today as Sean Love Combs. The pair started their relationship in 1999 and made a number of public appearances including the Grammy Awards in 2000 when JLo wore that iconic Versace gown.
However, it was revealed that infidelity was the reason for this breakup. Years later after JLo moved on, P Diddy dated Cameron Diaz on and off for four years, from 2008 to 2012. Diddy reportedly said that “if I could turn back time, things would be different.”
Lindsay Lohan – Aaron Carter – Hilary Duff
Some celebrities wish they had a feud as iconic as this one! It all started when Hilary Duff started dating Aaron Carter in 2001 after meeting on the set of Lizzie McGuire. Carter admitted to “getting bored” of his year-long relationship with Duff and decided to start dating Lindsay Lohan.
However, Lohan and Carter only dated for a few months before he was caught cheating on her with someone else. Despite this, the feud between Duff and Lohan intensified, which included gatecrashing each other’s movie premieres. Talk about catty!
Kristen Stewart – Robert Pattinson – FKA Twigs
R Patz and Kristen Stewart drove fans wild when it was found out that their on-screen relationship in Twilight was, in fact, real. The couple got together in 2008 but it ended abruptly when it was announced that Stewart cheated on Pattinson with director Rupert Sanders in 2012.
After dealing with his heartbreak, Pattinson later found love with British singer, FKA Twigs in 2014. They later got engaged in 2015, however, hectic travel schedules eventually caused their split in 2017. Twigs later wrote the song “Cellophane” about the end of her relationship.
Drew Barrymore – Fabrizio Moretti – Kristen Wiig
Drew and Kristen are examples of how to be friends when they date your ex. The Strokes drummer Fabrizio Moretti started dating Drew Barrymore after they met at The Strokes concert in 2002. After five years of dating, they went their separate ways in 2007.
Fast forward to 2012 and Moretti is dating Saturday Night Live star — and Barrymore’s Whip It! co-star — Kristen Wiig. Barrymore stated that the relationship ‘wacky.’ Just 18 months later, the pair called it quits, although it was an amicable breakup.
Lance Armstrong – Sheryl Crow – Owen Wilson
Lance Armstrong and Owen Wilson seem to have the same taste in women, as they share not one, but two exes! The first is Sheryl Crow, who dated Wilson after starring in The Minus Man together. They dated from 1999 to 2001, even attending the Vanity Fair Oscars party together in 2000.
After Wilson, Crow started a relationship with athlete Lance Armstrong in 2003. Their love flourished and the pair were engaged by 2005. However, when Crow suggested having children soon after Armstrong’s first marriage, this ended the relationship in 2006.
Taylor Swift – John Mayer – Katy Perry
Don’t you think 19 was too young to be messed with, John? A love triangle that set the wheels in motion for Swift and Perry’s feud, Taylor Swift dated John Mayer for two months when she was 19 and he was 32. Her heartbreak inspired the ballad, “Dear John,” on her third album, Speak Now.
Katy Perry entered an on-and-off-again relationship with Mayer in 2012, before officially calling things off in February 2014. Never fear, the Perry and Swift feud has ended, with Swift sending Perry a handstitched blanket for her newborn daughter, Daisy, in 2020.
Jennifer Aniston – Adam Duritz – Courteney Cox
Yes, Friends co-stars Jennifer Aniston and Courteney Cox actually share an ex-boyfriend. Aniston met Counting Crows frontman Adam Duritz through mutual friends and eventually began dating in 1995. Unfortunately, not much information is known about why the two broke up.
Two years later, and three years after Friends started, Courteney Cox began seeing Duritz after appearing in the music video for “A Long December.” Again, it isn’t known why the pair broke up, but Cox eventually married fellow actor David Arquette in 1999.
Miley Cyrus – Nick Jonas – Selena Gomez
The most important love triangle to exist for ’90s kids. Disney Channel stars Cyrus and Jonas became boyfriend and girlfriend the day they met backstage at a concert in 2006. The pair were in love with each other until 2008 when they eventually ended things. Cyrus wrote the song “7 Things” about Jonas.
Shortly after their breakup, Jonas proceeded to date fellow Disney star Selena Gomez. It was reported that Gomez was in love with him. However, this sparked a feud between Gomez and Cyrus, which has since been resolved. Were you #TeamMiley or #TeamSelena?
Kylie Jenner – Cody Simpson – Gigi Hadid
Before Tyga and Travis Scott, Kylie Jenner dated Australian singer Cody Simpson in 2011 — her first official relationship. Whilst it’s not known how long they dated for, it clearly didn’t end well with Simpson saying that “the whole K-O-D-Y thing didn’t really work for me.” Yikes!
After the dust had settled, Simpson sparked up a relationship with model Gigi Hadid in 2013. The pair were often spotted on Instagram and red carpets together, dating on-and-off for two years before ending things in 2015. Simpson said that he loved his ex, but wanted to remain focused on his music.

The couple dated on and off until their engagement in 2012, but that was called off in 2013. However, by 2016, the pair were back together and married in 2018, before splitting once more in 2019.

Olivia Rodrigo – Joshua Bassett – Sabrina Carpenter
The love triangle currently taking TikTok by storm! Stars of the Disney+ show — High School Musical: The Musical: The Series — Olivia Rodrigo and Joshua Bassett apparently were more than friends off-screen. However, after Rodrigo posted a TikTok about failed relationships in August 2020, it seemed to be over.
Not long after, Bassett was spotted with fellow rising star Sabrina Carpenter. Dating rumors were fuelled after the pair were spotted at lunch together where they were making TikToks. Rodrigo dropped her single “Driver’s License” in January 2021, which seems to be inspired by her recent heartbreak. Ouch.
Big Sean – Ariana Grande – Pete Davidson
In “Thank U, Next,” Ariana Grande named a number of exes — two of whom are rapper Big Sean and SNL comedian Pete Davidson. Grande briefly dated Big Sean in 2014, going public in 2015 at the Grammys. It wasn’t long until the couple broke up due to their touring schedules, which would have kept them apart for a year.
In 2018, Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson experienced a whirlwind romance. In May, they began dating after they first met in March 2016. In June, Grande confirmed she and Davidson had gotten engaged. However, by October, the two had called off their engagement and ended their relationship.

Bieber and Baldwin first met at a fan event when Baldwin was just 12 years old.

In March 2013, Phillippe and Ashley Greene were spotted leaving LA’s Vignette Lounge together. No other details seemed to emerge about the couple, and it’s likely that it was only just a case of wrong place, wrong time. Still, no drama ever came between the two costars!
Taylor Swift – Jake Gyllenhaal – Reece Witherspoon
The exes were keen to move on after their divorce. After splitting from Ryan Phillippe, Reese Witherspoon was spotted with fellow actor Jake Gyllenhaal in 2007. They eventually broke up after two years. Since then, Gyllenhaal has praised his ex, calling her “one of the smartest, strongest people I’ve ever met.”
Gyllenhaal was then spotted with Taylor Swift multiple times in late 2010. However, Swift and Gyllenhaal broke up in January 2011, reportedly by text. Swift, inspired by her breakup from Gyllenhaal, wrote “All Too Well” and “State of Grace” for her fourth album, Red.

Finding love again, this time on the set of The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones in July 2o12, Collins got together with costar Jamie Campbell Bower.

Rihanna and A$AP Rocky have been friends for years, but there’s reason to believe that there’s now a budding relationship. After Ri Riri broke up with her long-term boyfriend in January 2020, rumors began flying that the two have become more than friends. They even spent Christmas in Barbados!

After meeting on the set of The Amazing Spider-Man in 2010, Stone started a long-term relationship with Andrew Garfield. The pair remained private about their relationship to ‘preserve’ it, however, scheduling issues in 2015 eventually brought their relationship to an end.

Jenny Slate – Chris Evans – Jessica Biel

Two weeks later, Taylor was spotted kissing Tom Hiddleston near Swift’s Rhode Island home. Harris was fuming and unfollowed Swift, as well as her family, on Instagram. After a summer romance in 2016, Hiddleswift was no more due to publicity issues. We wonder where Tom’s “I <3 T.S.” shirt is?
Angelina Jolie – Brad Pitt – Jennifer Aniston
It wouldn’t be a celebrity love triangle if we didn’t mention the most iconic triangle of the last three decades! Jennifer and Brad first met each other in 1994, but didn’t go on their first date until 1998 when their agents set it up. By 1999, the pair were engaged!

Britney Spears – Justin Timberlake – Cameron Diaz
Another iconic 2000s love triangle! After meeting for the first time on The Mickey Mouse Club, Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake entered a three-year-long relationship (1999 to 2002). They even wore matching outfits, does anyone remember the double-denim outfits at the AMA’s?
However, a year later in 2003, Timberlake found love with Cameron Diaz after the pair had met at the Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards.

In September 2006, Kardashian and Cannon began their relationship. It wasn’t long before things came crashing down in January 2007 after accusations of mistrust and lying were thrown around. They split just before Kim found fame on her family’s reality show, Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
Selena Gomez – Taylor Lautner – Taylor Swift
Real friends share exes! In 2009, Selena Gomez started dating actor Taylor Lautner after they both met in Vancouver shooting their movies. Gomez starred in Ramona and Beezus and Lautner starred in Twilight: New Moon. The pair broke up after Lautner wanted to stay single for his career.
His head was turned, however, when he met singer-songwriter Taylor Swift. They met on the set of the movie Valentine’s Day and dated briefly from August to December 2009. It is rumored that Swift’s song, “Back to December,” is about Lautner, where she mentions his tan skin and sweet smile.
Kourtney Kardashian – Scott Disick – Sofia Richie
Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick were a couple long before Keeping Up With the Kardashians aired. The pair met in Mexico in 2006 and welcomed three children together in their tumultuous 10-year-long relationship. They officially split in 2015 after Scott was spotted getting cozy with one of his exes.
In 2017, Disick debuted his relationship with 19-year-old model, Sofia Richie, daughter of Lionel Richie. Their relationship was very serious, and Richie even met Disick’s three kids along with Kourtney. Despite how serious the pair were, they split after three years in 2020.
