It’s undeniable that breakups and divorces seem to be even more common in Hollywood than they are in the real world. For some reason, it always seems like celebrities change partners as if they were changing their socks. Yet, it’s important to remember that while divorce may be the rule, there are plenty of exceptions! Read on to learn about the successful love stories of Hollywood – the couples who have been together for years and years.
Denzel Washington and Pauletta Washington – 37 years
Over 20 years ago in 1996, People magazine labeled Denzel Washington the best-looking man of the year. Now not only a gifted actor, but also the best-looking man of the year, women were pouring out of the woodwork hoping to woo the actor! Little did they know, he was already happily married at the time–and he still is to this day!
In 1996, the pair had already been together for nearly 20 years! Denzel and Pauletta met in 1977 and married in 1983 after six years of dating (back then, that was considered taking their time). The star of Training Day and his wife even chose to renew their vows in South Africa! The two have also had four children together.
