It's always surprising to learn how long-lasting couples ended up meeting. In this case, Bo Derek and John Corbett were set up by friends in 2002. Both actors were single and in need of a date to an Oscars party. So their friends did what friends do best, and acted as matchmakers.

As of today, the couple has now been together for over 18 years. However, they are not married, and don't plan to get married. They've said they don't think that marriage is necessary at this point in their lives.

One thing Bo Derek and businessman Ted Turner had in common around the year 2000 was that they had both recently suffered heartbreak. Derek had lost her husband, and Ted Turner's marriage with Jane Fonda collapsed. So it'd make sense that, upon meeting, Derek and Turner would've sparked off a healthy relationship.

Sources claim that Turner courted Derek in 2000, just a few months after his relationship with Fonda ended. The couple, however, was very discrete about the ordeal. Friends of Derek and Turner claimed that they were just friends, and that nothing intimate had developed.
