Single, good-looking celebs are like honey and the flies are equally, if not much more attractive ladies looking for some love and probably financial security. In extreme cases, aka when the love is too blinding, celebs choose their partners for their personality, not glamorous looks. It is understandable, that everyone has their own ideas about beauty and that it’s not the most important thing in the world, but these 6 couples are just too out there!
1. Mark Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan
The youngest billionaire on the planet is married to his classmate. They say she was one of the few who supported Mark when he was just starting to work on creating Facebook. Prior to getting married, they dated for about nine years.
According to Mark, Priscilla hooked him primarily with her simplicity and openness. Just like her billionaire husband, Priscilla is completely indifferent to buying expensive things and the popularity that hit her.
2. Hugh Laurie and Joe Green
Hugh, who’s probably the craziest genius doctor in the history of cinema, is happily married to a theater administrator Joe, whom he met in the mid-80’s.
Their beautiful wedding was played in the summer of 1989. Since then, the couple raised three kids, and it seems like after all these years, their marriage only got stronger. 27 years is a long time, especially in our time, when families break up a year after the wedding.
3. Pierce Brosnan and Keely Shaye Smith
The Irish James Bond dated both Holly Berry and Denise Richards, but married an unremarkable journalist. Apparently Pierce and Keely had dated for more than seven years before the whole wedding thing. By the time the couple tied the knot, they already had a son, and a second kid was in the oven.
Now they are enjoying each other’s company in a chic house on the Pacific coast and try not to pay attention to snarky comments about Keely’s body.
4. Sergey Brin and Anna Vojitsky
Co-owner of Google, ranked 16th in the list of the world’s richest people, made friends with his future wife during his student years. Sergei studied at Stanford, Anna – in Yale, where she studied biology. They got engaged in the Bahamas in 2007 and only a few very close people knew about it.
Anna is a very promising young scientist with a degree in genetics, and she helps people to know in advance about their predisposition to certain diseases. People say Sergei takes an active part in promoting her projects.
5. Hugh Jackman and Deborra-Lee Furness
Hugh the Handsome could probably get any woman on the planet, if he wanted, but for more than 20 years his heart has belonged to Deborre-Lee, who is 13 years older than him. In the early 90’s, when they met, she was a rather popular actress, and Hugh was almost unknown to anyone.
She admits that the age difference does matter, but Hugh was always much more mature than her, so they balance each other out.
6. Josh Holloway and Yessika Kumar
The “Lost” star has been married to a native Indonesian girl since 2004. Josh cherishes and loves Yessica like no-one ever had, and even despite a tight work schedule, he manages to devote a lot of time to his daughter and little son. A perfect family man.
