When it comes to power in Hollywood, it is wielded with the force of a Gladiator by some of the entertainment industry's big guns. When two celebrities get together, their collective command
over the world of entertainment is explosive.
Here are SheKnows Top 10 Hollywood Power Couples, or as a Hollywood producer may call it: Ten Titans of Tinseltown.
Christina Aguilera and her record executive husband met soon after Aguilera had gone through her Dirty phase. Ready to settle down, she met Bratman -- and a music industry love affair commenced. Fast forward two years and Aguilera and Bratman are married and welcomed baby Max to the family in January 2008.
Bell is making waves in the last two years for her turn in Heroes and as the sultry narrator on the CW mega-hit Gossip Girl. Toss in an enormously successful film, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, where she portrayed the title character and her power ranking is rising.
Her beau of just over a year, Dax Shepherd, previously dated Kate Hudson and has learned a thing or two about dating a starlet as his relationship with Bell is showing no signs of slowing down. Shepherd has been seen all over since his debut on Jackass. Bell's better half has been seen on screen in Baby Mama, Employee of the Month and the upcoming When in Rome with Bell and Josh Duhamel (also known as Mr Fergie).
Kate Winslet is a five-time Oscar nominee while her husband, Sam Mendes, won for directing American Beauty. The pair met through friends in London. The couple finally had a chance to work together with the film that brought Winslet back together on screen with her Titanic mate, Leonardo DiCaprio – Revolutionary Road. Winslet and Mendes have the power to make a film happen, simply by attaching their names.
No matter who Britney Spears dates, the individual will be an instant Hollywood player followed by paparazzi and seen at the industry's biggest soirees and events. Britney is a power player unlike any other in the music industry, eclipsing her Mickey Mouse Club mate Aguilera at number 10. Spears has proven to possess the power to be able to comeback repeatedly, a feat not easily achieved in celebrity circles in Hollywood.
Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher are known for their passionate love and age difference. What they are also known for is being one of Hollywood's most powerful couples. Their pairing resulted in a wedding that dazzled the tabloids.
Between Moore's classic Hollywood glamour and personal movie history (her films have grossed more than a billion dollars) and Kutcher's budding acting and producing career, Moore and Kutcher's power is only increasing with time. Catch the duo on Twitter: Demi is MrsKutcher and Ashton is AplusK.
She's classic Hollywood glamour and he's classic Hollywood genes. Together they make an influential pair. Catherine Zeta Jones and Michael Douglas are both Oscar winners and each can get a film made with the simple whisper of their interest. Often jetting from their private Caribbean island to Hollywood for meetings discussing their next projects, Zeta Jones and Douglas are stalwarts on the award season red carpet. Both actors' work is appreciated beyond compare in Tinsel Town.
Will and Jada. There are only a few couples in Hollywood with the clout to be known simply by their first names.
Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith are the couple Hollywood adores. Each with their initial romances that failed, they have found each other and raised a family that is producing Hollywood hits in their own right. It will not be long before Smith is sporting an Oscar, and Pinkett Smith could soon be earning Grammys for her musical work.
Steven Spielberg is certainly one of Hollywood's most powerful people. He and his wife Kate Capshaw share the distinction of being one of Hollywood's top three power couples because of their combined philanthropic efforts that have raised hundreds of millions for causes far and wide. Toss in the fact that as Mrs Spielberg, who met her hubby on the set of Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, gets a starring role in whichever of her husband's films she chooses. That is power indeed.
Like Spielberg before him, Tom Cruise is without question a Titan of Tinsel Town. Cruise's Hollywood power has shined since the '80s with hits as far ranging as Top Gun, Interview with a Vampire to his current Valkyrie. But, it was when he and Katie Holmes got together that the couple became an international sensation.
Currently, Holmes is starring on Broadway in All My Sons to stellar reviews. Wherever Mr and Mrs Cruise appear -- especially if they're with their daughter Suri -- the paparazzi go crazy. Their wedding caused such a stir that, indicative of Cruise and Holmes' power, many on this top 10 list flew to Italy to share in their wedding joy.
Expecting someone else to be the number one Hollywood power couple? Considering everything Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie do as a pair is an event, their power is truly pristine.
With both in films constantly garnering award nominations, Brad and Angie are the gold standard for any red carpet. The flip side of what makes Pitt and Jolie so powerful, is that their strength not only arises from their Hollywood inside power that allows projects to develop into blockbusters, Brad and Angie are world changers and that makes them the most powerful couple on any list!
