15 Famous White Men Married to Black Women

Several famous white men are or have been married to black women. Proving that love sees no color, some of the most well-known and powerful duos are of mixed races. From Oscar-winning actors, to rock and roll icons, and even up-and-coming stars, there are several notable white men married to black women in Hollywood. A picture perfect example of one of these interracial celebrity couples is David Bowie and Iman. The British rocker married the Somali-American model in 1992 and seem more in love than ever before. Robert De Niro's first wife, Diahnne Abbott, acted in supporting roles in several of his films, including Taxi Driver. The couple divorced in 1988, and nine years later, De Niro married African-American actress and singer Grace Hightower.

A new generation of famous interracial couples are popping up in the entertainment industry and even collaborating professionally. British screenwriter Ol Parker met actress Thandie Newton while working on a BBC film and married in 1998. R&B singer Robin Thicke began dating actress Paula Patton when he was 16 and they married in 2005. Thicke and Patton even co-starred in his 2006 hit music video "Lost Without U" - but she filed for divorce in 2014.
