Celebrities Married Non-Celebrities
Celebrities married non-celebrities. As we've said before, being a celebrity means you can get with whoever you want. People just wanna get up in your famous junk. Even though these people could get with whoever they want, they decided that non-famous people were better than famous people. Kudos to them! And kudos to the regular people for showing us that dreams can come true.
Little-known celebrity spouses
After their secret ceremony this summer, Daniel Craig and Rachael Weisz are among the likes of Brangelina, TomKat and this British pair as one of Hollywood's power couples. However, not all celebrities marry other famous people. Let's take a look at some of the lesser-known spouses who wed some of Hollywood's most famous stars.
Matt Damon and Luciana Barroso
The ladies generally love Matt Damon. He was super awesome in Good Will Hunting and the Bourne Trilogy, and managed to be awkwardly hilarious in the Ocean's Trilogy. With credentials like that, he is the star conducter on the Honey Express bound for Pussyville. Those are his words, not ours. Instead of gettin' down with a celebrity babe, he decided to marry Luciano Barroso. She's hot!
Julia Roberts and Daniel Moder
Julia Roberts made $25 million for Mona Lisa Smile. It probably made her husband, cameraman Daniel Moder happy. Roberts met the dude when she was filiming The Mexican. He was married, but somehow found the courage to ruin his marriage to do it with Julia Roberts. Previously, Julia Roberts was married to Lyle Lovett, so we already know that she'll marry pretty much anybody.
Samuel L. Jackson and Letanya Jackson
Samuel L. Jackson is comically bad-ass. What we mean is, he's funny in a lot of his movies, and he's bad ass in some of his movies, and he's BOTH in all of his movies. He married his wife in 1980 and never looked back. What a guy.
Mel Gibson and Robyn Moore
Mel Gibson is one of the world's most famous people. After making tons of movies and making lots of dollars for it, one would assume he would pick out the hottest chick available. BUT WAIT--he was married in 1980 to a woman that lived in his apartment complex.
John C. Reilly and Allison Dickey
Most celebrities are really good looking people. But there are also unattractive celebrities because even ugly people need to be in movies! John C. Reilly is one of those people. He isn't attractive, but he's an awesome actor and you would definitely want to drink beer and watch sports with him. But as fame has taught us, looks don't really matter when it comes to getting action (see Lyle Lovett). He met her on the set of Casualties of War.
Britney Spears and Kevin Federline
Today, Kevin Federline is a household name equated with being the worst person of all time. Before she made him famous, K-Fed, as he is unaffectionately called, was a back-up dancer, amateur (very amateur) rapper, and all-around grade A douche-nozzle. At first, everyone was like "What is Britney thinking? He is clearly white-trash!" But at the time, Britney Spears was UN-clearly white trash until her marriage made her clearly white trash. Kevin Federline is horrible.
Renee Russo and Dan Gilroy
What is there to say about Renee Russo other than that she's an older lady that you would totally love to bone? But she's married to Dan Gilroy, a screen-writer who has written generally forgettable movies..
Robert De Niro and Grace Hightower
No need to describe Robert De Niro. The guy's a legend. His wife, Grace Hightower, is not a legend. She's a former flight attendant. They've been married since 1997.
Jeff Bridges and Susan Geston
Jeff Bridges is the man. You may remember him from such awesome movies as Fearless, The Contender, and The Big Lebowski. He met his un-famous wife Susan Geston on the set of Rancho Deluxe in 1975. She worked as a maid.
Ron Howard and Cheryl Howard
Ron Howard, all-American dude, married Cheryl Howard in 1975. She was his high school sweetheart.
Jerry Seinfeld and Jessica Seinfeld
Jerry Seinfeld met Jessica Sklar during the height of popularity of Seinfeld. Unfortunately, she was scheduled to marry another dude! She married that guy, and after returning home from their honeymoon, she started banging Jerry. Not surprisingly, her husband was pretty annoyed, so he divorced her. They were married on Christmas Day, 1999.
Charlie Sheen and wife Brooke Mueller
Although they’ve been in the news more for their public brawls than for the strength of their marriage lately, Charlie Sheen and wife Brooke Mueller say they have no plans to divorce. Sheen met real estate investor Mueller in 2006 when they were introduced by friends Eric Dane and Rebecca Gayheart, and the two married in 2008. They have twin boys and are said to be trying to work out their marital problems, which includes physical and substance abuse on both parts, for the sake of their children.
Eric Bana and Rebecca Gleeson
Actor Eric Bana met publicist Rebecca Gleeson in 1995 and married her in 1997. The couple has two children and their marriage seems to be one of the rare success stories of Hollywood. Bana says their secret is constantly making each other laugh. “We definitely laugh together every day,” he says. “And I don’t mean chuckle – I can make her really laugh.” As for why their relationship has endured, Bana claims that maintaining a great friendship is the key. He says, “I think love can come fairly easily and grow – but really liking the core essence of someone is a much harder thing to bottle. If you have both, you’re in pretty good shape.” Source
Marcia Cross and Tom Mahoney
Although she plays a Desperate Housewife on TV, Marcia Cross is anything but in real life. She met stockbroker Tom Mahoney in 2005, married him one year later, and has never looked back. It was the first marriage for both of them, and Cross said she was glad, after waiting till the age of 44 to get married. “I’m thrilled that I met someone that I want to spend the rest of my life with,” she said.

Tobey Maguire and Jennifer Meyer
Maguire met American jewelry designer Meyer in 2003 and married her in 2007. The couple have two children and seem to be living a happy life. She even created a wedding ring for him, which Maguire still wears. Meyer designed two rings at his request, in case he ever lost one, which he has yet to do. “He’s never worn any jewellery before and he warned me when we got married that he’d probably lose the wedding band, so I should make him a couple,” she explains. “But he’s still on the first one, and we’re over two and a half years married, so we’re doing good.” Meyer describes Maguire as an “amazing husband.” Source
