It's easy to be cynical about celebrity pair-ups. Are they just together for the purposes of careerism or publicity? Are they destined to divorce after a couple of years and move on to the next equally short-lived relationship?
Still, celebrities are people too, and like anybody else, they're capable of committed, loving relationships. We've gathered up the cutest celebrity couples stories that we could find for your reading pleasure.
Rita Wilson and Tom Hanks began their relationship nearly 40 years ago and have been married for over 30 years. As one can imagine, the two have been through a lot together, including Wilson's 2015 breast cancer diagnosis - which she beat. Hanks takes his vows seriously, and doesn't want to be away from his loving wife if he can help it - so much so that he insisted on tagging along while the singer toured with her band.
“He’s already said, ‘I am coming on the tour bus!’ So I had to get one with a bigger bed. So that was important. He’s coming. He’s going to be on tour... He’s a roadie,” Wilson told People magazine in 2015.
Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds balance each other out, with the actress admitting she doesn't always handle stressful situations well. A perfect example occurred during their wedding, when there was a mishap with sparklers.
"For example, my wedding dress," Lively explained to Vogue. "Florence Welch was singing at the reception, and they brought out these sparklers, and I'm watching her sing. I look down and my wedding dress has a big burn mark from one of the sparklers. Right on the front! And it was just so heartbreaking to me."
Reynolds came to his bride's rescue, telling her that she'll always have a beautiful memory from it.
'"You'll always remember that moment with Florence singing and the sparklers,'" Lively recalled her husband saying. "'You have that forever, right there, preserved.'"
She said that, because of his response, it's become her "favorite part of the dress."
The couple married in 2012, and they have three children together.
John Krasinski found himself weeping while watching a special screening of Mary Poppins Returns, starring wife Emily Blunt.
Less than a half-hour into the film, Krasinski had to excuse himself. Blunt was worried her spouse didn't like the film, but that wasn't the case at all - it was just too much to handle.
"I was like, 'I need anything to stop this crying!'" the actor explained on Ellen. "I was crying so much. I blew through the tissue box in 20 minutes, had to go to the napkins, and when I ran out of napkins, it’s just all sweater."
Do celebrity relationships get any cuter than Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn? While they've never married, the sweethearts have been together for over 35 years.
In 2017, Russell and Hawn were each awarded stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. And what better way to celebrate than to give each other a smooch? That is exactly what they did, showing the world that their fire is still alive and burning.
The couple have one son together, Wyatt, born in 1986.
