Do you know the universal rule that everyone talks about in love? “Opposites attract” is what I mean. In some romantic movies, for example, we might have seen a bad boy being attracted to a good girl. Alternatively, we may have a shy buddy who is drawn to someone extroverted and sociable. It seems to make sense that they’d be a good match.
And perhaps there’s no better example of this rule than in Hollywood, where you will find some of the most oddly mismatched couples. Some famous couples have chosen partners who do not match their conditions. Some have a significant age gap, and still, others have a significant height difference. Despite being absolutely mismatched, these couples prove that true love might exist beyond borders or stereotypes, and all you need for a successful relationship is the care and mutual understanding.
Today, we’re gonna introduce 9 celebrity couples that people couldn’t think would be together. Keep reading for more details!
#1 Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Sam Taylor-Johnson
This couple demonstrates to the world that age differences may be beneficial in any situation. For more than a decade, actor Aaron Taylor-Johnson, 31, and director Sam Taylor-Johnson, 55, have been together. The pair, who have an age difference of 23 years, met through the 2009 film “Nowhere Boy” and have spoken about their long-lasting romance in various interviews.
#2 Peter Dinklage and Erica Schmidt
Peter Dinklage, a Game of Thrones actor, has been married for nearly 12 years. In 1995, the actor met Erica, a young theater director, and their close friendship turned into a relationship. The couple now has two children together.
#3 Hugh Jackman and Deborra-lee Furness
Hugh Jackman and Deborra-Lee Furness have what is arguably one of the most successful relationships in Hollywood. The Aussie actors, who have a 13-year age gap between them, recently celebrated their 25th anniversary, proving once and for all that age is nothing but a number.
#4 Mark Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan
Many people believe that powerful men only choose beautiful women to be their wives. But Mark Zuckerberg, one of the richest people in the world, is unconcerned with stereotypes and married his closest buddy.
Priscilla supported Mark when no one believed in his concept, and Mark was there for his wife when she had three miscarriages and couldn’t have a kid. But they managed to become happy parents.
#5 Hafþór Björnsson và Kelsey Henson
The Game of Thrones star wrote on his Instagram page, “It is with great pleasure that I now get to call Kelsey Morgan Henson my wife!”
Kelsey is hardly tall enough to reach her husband’s shoulder but they don’t care. The newlyweds met at a bar where Kelsey worked as a server and they’ve been together ever since.
#6 Liv Tyler và Dave Gardner
Liv Tyler is taller than her husband, but she doesn’t seem to mind: she wears high-heeled shoes and doesn’t make an effort to appear shorter. The pair has two children together and two additional children from previous marriages. Liv and Dave recently married, according to Jack Whitehall.
#7 Jessica Alba and Cash Warren
Their love story is typical of a romantic Hollywood film: a regular guy called Cash worked as a director’s assistant, running errands such as ordering pizzas and buying coffee to go. He never imagined himself meeting and marrying his favorite actress. They’ve been married for almost ten years and have three children together.
#8 Prince Harry and Meghan Markle
This is, without a doubt, the oddest couple of them all. A divorced 37-year-old American actress with Afghani roots from a regular family became part of the British Royal family! We used to believe that such things only happened in fairy tales, but we were mistaken. The wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle became the most talked-about event of the year, inspiring many people to think that true love might exist beyond borders or stereotypes.
