Boy meets girl, girl meets boy - they fall in love and live happily ever after. Sound familiar? From a young age, we are practically raised to believe in love at first sight, finding our soul mate and living happily ever after. Even our favorite childhood Disney characters showed us what it meant to find true love and how, once it was found, it could never be broken. As we grew older, this idea of romance and happily ever after seemingly became just an illusion. Additionally, many of our favorite celebrity couples succumbed to the temptations of Hollywood, Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt and recently, Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin, it seems we've become accustomed to the idea that a successful Hollywood romance is one that, if lucky, usually only lasts five years. But amidst all the Hollywood breakups, makeups and divorces, there arises a few notable couples who have managed to exemplify the idea of real romance, living their own happily ever afters’. From how they met, to how they keep their love alive, we outline the top six sigh-worthy celebrity love stories.
6 Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck (2003)
5 Victoria & David Beckham (1997)
4 Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves (2006)
3 Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie (2004)
2 Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman (2005)
1 Matt Damon and Luciana Barroso (2003)
It is a classic, modern Cinderella story –substitute the prince for a famous, handsome celebrity and Cinderella for a beautiful bartender and you have Matt Damon and Luciana Barroso – a modern day love story. Matt Damon, tired from filming the chick flick, Stuck on You in Miami, Florida, was quite literally dragged to a nearby bar by a few of his on-set friends - a decision that would change his life. “I ended up at a bar where my wife was the bartender. I literally saw her across a crowded room”, Matt Damon says of that evening. She wasn’t famous, she wasn’t rich – it was the epitome of love at first sight. Over the years and three children later, that love continues to grow. The couple has a ‘two-week’ rule – the longest amount of time Matt is allowed to be away from the family and a rule that the two take so seriously, it has stopped Matt from accepting various movie roles. “I hit the jackpot with my wife…she is my soul mate, I don’t like being away from her,” he says.
