Relationships can be trying enough sometimes for us regular folk. For celebrities, those challenges are amplified ten-fold as things like work schedules and the scrutiny of life in the public eye can strain even the strongest of couplings. Still, no one understands the life of a celebrity more than another celebrity, so it stands to reason that another person in the public eye can make the best, most relateable partners.
This bears keeping in mind as you read this list, where you will see plenty of couples who share little in common beyond their respective celebrity statuses. While most of these couples have since seen their nuptials come to an end, some continue to thrive in spite of a partnership that initially prompted a widespread public incredulity.
In certain situations, love is blind and one's soul mate may not appear to make sense at first blush. Mary-Kate Olsen is still going strong with Olivier Sarkozy, the brother of former French president Nicolas Sarkozy, despite an 18-year age gap. Under other circumstances, stars may need to hit a pothole along the road to finding Mr. or Ms. Right. Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis appear well on their way to happiness together, but they had to get past respective relationships with Demi Moore and Macauley Culkin in order to get there.
Indeed, these strange pairings show that love conquers all. Well, sometimes anyway. Other times, a coupling that looks doomed on the surface soon becomes just that. Here are the 10 weirdest celebrity marriages:
10 Harrison Ford / Calista Flockhart
9 Isla Fisher / Sacha Baron Cohen
8 Mariah Carey / Nick Cannon
7 David Cross / Amber Tamblyn
6 Demi Moore / Ashton Kutcher
5 Sean Penn / Madonna
4 Christina Hendricks / Geoffrey Arend
3 Tom Green / Drew Barrymore
2 Dennis Rodman / Carmen Electra
1 Billy Bob Thornton / Angelina Jolie
Actors Billy Bob Thornton and Angelina Jolie seemed to be a pair of kindred spirits during their brief, bizarre, whirlwind romance. Their dark, gothic sensibilities involved wearing vials of each other's blood on their neck and featured a Vegas wedding which saw them get hitched in jeans and a gray tank top (her) and a printed shirt and trucker hat (him). Clearly, their 2000-2003 marriage represented a very different time in their lives, particularly in the case of Jolie, who has since become an A-list humanitarian and half of Hollywood's most star-studded power couple alongside Brad Pitt.
