Celeb Love
That Lasts

The only thing more common than tans, palm trees and plastic surgery in Hollywood, seems to be celebrity hook-ups gone wrong. From Brad and Jen to Tom and Nicole to Cameron and Justin, La La Land is littered with the remains of failed relationships. But there are some exceptions to the rule.

We've come up with the ultimate list of top celebrity couples that have stood the test of time. Whether through working together, mutual respect or an abundance of common ideals, these tireless celebrity twosomes take commitment seriously. Check it out.

Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson: Top celebrity couple

Married since 1988

Why this celebrity couple lasts:

Married since 1988, these two make marriage look effortless. Being in a long-term, committed relationship takes teamwork, and Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson are a strong team. They not only support each other in their respective careers, but also work together. The couple have appeared in a few films together, including Volunteers, Sleepless in Seattle, and That Thing You Do. They have also co-produced several films together, including the sleeper hit, My Big Fat Greek Wedding, which Rita Wilson discovered the script for and the couple produced together. They also manage to keep their private lives private, which is a huge component to lasting celebrity couplings. The less you're in the tabloids, the easier it is to focus on the important things in life, like making your marriage work.

Hey Jessica Padykula----Is this white racism against blacks again or what? Intentional or negligent racial exclusion or marginalization of African-Americans is very noticeable and cannot be tolerated. Why would you put Seal and Heidi Klum on this list, especially knowing that Black Briton Seal has facial scars which does not make him look attractive when compared to the white males here? And so much for your myth about the strongest couples: Douglas and Zeta Jones. Where is African-Americans Will Smith and Jada Pinkett, who by the way are a very attractive couple. And don't talk about rumors about them divorcing because you added Michael Douglas and wife despite the FACT that they are separated, even at the recent Emmy's. And where is African-American actor Samuel L. Jackson and actress Latanya Richardson?

You forgot Alice Cooper and Sheryll (did I spell that wrong?) They have been with each other since 1975 (I believe 1975, sometime in the 70’s). They have been with each other through thick and thin! It’s a nice story about how they met. I’m a fan :)

Vicky September 09, 2013 | 3:08 PM

Not that long ago the article was published - only 2 years ago - and 2 couples out of 9 divorced.. Sad stats.

Donna August 30, 2013 | 4:30 PM

Maybe this list should be updated as at least 3 of these couples are no longer together.

Lily August 24, 2013 | 6:42 AM

What about Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie? Will and Jada Smith? Come on?!

PT August 18, 2013 | 4:00 PM

LOVE IT!!! At least three of these couples are no longer together... yeah to celebrity couples and the great insight of this author!!! thumbs up!

Gutie August 05, 2013 | 3:27 PM

What about Ed Burns and Christy Turlington-burns have been together 10 years, or are you only naming west coast couples.

Mike Allen August 05, 2013 | 7:52 AM

The best of all time: June Carter and Johnny Cash

Voice of reason June 05, 2013 | 12:14 AM

On the contrary - they were thinking straight. Not a single couple. But then this mag is all about hetero motherhood and apple pie, ain't it? Sorry - 'mommyhood'. Ew

Madgean September 17, 2012 | 10:05 AM

I have to say selena and justin beiber they been together for a few and the magazines can't get enough of them.

Kay September 03, 2012 | 3:31 PM

Nobody ever mentions Mark Harmon and Pam Dawber. 20 years or more.

Syntric February 12, 2012 | 3:20 AM

What about Faith and Tim? They've been together for an awfully long time. Heidi and Seal are on the outs, Kanye is a one-man circus. There's hardly any real love stories with the one's you've posted here. :/

Margaret I Watson January 22, 2012 | 7:21 AM

Really, do you mean the top white couples??? What about Oprah and Stedman, Heidi and Seal, Johnny and Vanessa, REALLY???

LauraG October 26, 2011 | 8:24 AM

Michael J.Fox and Tracy Pollan should have been on this list, they've been together for so long and have a great relationship...

Bonnie September 14, 2011 | 6:31 AM

Where's Hugh Jackman and Deborra Lee Furness and Will and Jada Smith???? Very biased in my opinion, or someone wasn't thinking straight when they wrote this article.

Marcia June 11, 2011 | 11:39 AM

Wow I'm so surprise that Will and Jada are not at the top of this list. But again you put couples with far little history than their great love story....

Liliana June 04, 2011 | 6:24 PM

The number one celebrity couple Kanye West... It is a joke ..right. Liliana from Lima - Peru.

Julie June 02, 2011 | 2:18 AM

I'm gonna call BS on Johnny Depp and his wife. They may still be married, but I work in LA and I heard from a reliable source that he's got plenty of women on the side, and has "habits similar to that of Mr. Sheen". Just sayin'.

Liza May 22, 2011 | 10:08 AM

No Brad and Angelina? They might as well be married.

Faith May 17, 2011 | 4:42 AM

I agree Will and Jada should have made the list whatever the position, hell Beyoncé and Jay Z have been together for 10 years
