There have been some incredible love stories in Hollywood history — and they each have their fair share of ups and downs. From old Hollywood to current-day Hollywood, there are so many memorable romances to choose from.
When choosing our 10 favorites, though, we couldn’t help but highlight a one that was so special that we got to see it unfold — in a fictional sense — every week on TV. We’re talking about Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz, of course, the stars of I Love Lucy who were married from 1940 until 1960. Many grew up watching them on the small screen — both in the ’50s as well as in reruns still airing today — with their hilarious antics delivering too many laughs to count.
There are even a few couples on the list who are still together — and with us — now. Those would be Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson as well as Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell. Both duos are iconic in their own right, with Tom and Rita, both 63, showing us that marriages in Hollywood can last and with Goldie, 74, and Kurt, 68, showing us that you don’t even need to tie the knot to be soulmates. There isn’t just one type of successful relationship, that’s for sure.
All that said, there are plenty of duos from yesteryear included who are sadly not with us anymore. They include Academy Award winners, legendary singers and some of the most attractive stars of their day. Trust us, you’re going to feel your heart fluttering when you find out more about these red-hot romances from the annals of showbiz!
