Being in a world surrounded by the media and having celebrity status usually means that many men in the spotlight right now will have an army of women hoping to get in a relationship with them. Some male celebrities are well-known for the fact that they will only date the most beautiful women and they go from relationship to relationship on a regular basis, which earns them something of a reputation. There are other celebrities who don't seem to care that much about how attractive they actually are and they instead decide to date women based on personality rather than their physical appearance.
Some of the most attractive male celebrities in the world have married or dated women that are considered to be below them. These men have been regarded as the best looking men in the world, but it seems that they still would prefer to marry or date based on the women that they love rather than what they look like. Even though there are a number of shallow celebrities who only care about their image and who is on their arm, it seems that these couples prove to be very different.
The following list looks at 15 of the best looking male celebrities who decided to date or even marry women that many of their fans considered to be in a completely different league. Some couples have since split, but some are still going strong, which just goes to show that not every relationship in the celebrity world has to be defined by physical appearance.
15 Hugh Jackman And Deborra-Lee Furness
Hugh Jackman has been a solid fixture on the acting scene over the past few years and after portraying Wolverine, it seems that he was opened up to a much bigger audience and the female fans flocked around him in support.
It seems that Jackman isn't the kind of star that cares about his public image or how many women are ready to throw themselves at him. Jackman met Australian actress Deborra-Lee Furness on the set of TV Show Corelli back in 1995 and the two then married the following year. It was reported that they only dated for around four months before they married and even though Furness is 13 years his senior, the two have been able to make their marriage work over the past two decades. Together the couple has even adopted two children after Furness suffered two miscarriages in their early year together. Jackman has become a heartthrob throughout his career and many feel that he is out of his wife's league.
14 Kit Harrington And Rose Leslie
Kit Harrington has been a popular star on hit show Game of Thrones over the past six seasons and it seems that this role has allowed Kit to become a poster boy for the series and a reason why a number of women have begun watching the show religiously.
While working on Game of Thrones, Harrington began a relationship with co-star Rose Leslie, who was his love interest in the show as well. Both British actors have since announced their engagement, but while it seems that the couple is happy with their choice of partner, many fans of the gorgeous actor don't think that she is the best choice for him. Many feel that this was a relationship of convenience from when they were seen as partners on the show and the romance will fail in the end since Leslie isn't up to the standard that many expect from Jon Snow.
13 Armie Hammer And Elizabeth Chambers
Armie Hammer is a well-known actor and will perhaps best be remembered for his role as Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss in The Social Network back in 2010. Since then it seems that the star has been taking the acting world by storm and picking up a number of adoring fans along the way.
Armie broke a number of these fans hearts back in 2010 when it was revealed that he was set to marry long-time girlfriend Elizabeth Chambers. Elizabeth is a TV personality and someone who had been close to Armie for a number of years. The couple has two children together the youngest was only born last year. It seems that even though Elizabeth is someone who is used to being critiqued on TV, she has been the victim of a lot of negativity over her relationship with the actor since many feel that he is too attractive for someone who is only known as a Z-list celebrity.
12 Clive Owen And Sarah Jane Fenton
Clive Owen made his debut in the acting business back in 1988 as a fresh-faced 24-year-old and was a man that attracted many women in his earlier days. His high profile roles in Sin City, Derailed and The International have opened him up to a worldwide audience and a number of adoring female fans.
It seems that Owen was never someone who was spotted around women, which was why it was such a shock when he married Sarah Jane Fenton back in 1995. Fenton was once an actor on the circuit as well which was how she and her future husband met when the duo played Romeo and Juliet at The Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London. The couple then married a few years later and now have two teenage daughters. Sarah has gained a lot of negative attention for being something of a plain Jane and many of Owen's fans were wondering what it is that keeps the couple together. Perhaps it isn't all about looks?
11 Jesse Williams And Aryn Drake-Lee
Jesse Williams is well-known for his role as Jackson Avery on critically acclaimed hospital drama Grey's Anatomy where he became the object of a lot of women's affection. It seems that Williams could have his pick of women but remained single for a long time before he met Aryn Drake-Lee.
The couple finally tied the knot back in 2012 and broke women's hearts all over the world. Drake-Lee is pretty much unknown to many of Williams fans, but they hoped that a woman that was good enough to take the alluring doctor off the market would be a supermodel or the equivalent, but many were disappointed to see that Drake-Lee isn't any of the above. It seems that Williams is a man who believes more in love than physical looks, but the couple were reported to have filed for divorce back in 2017 and went their separate ways last year.
10 Aaron Taylor-Johnson And Sam Taylor-Wood
Aaron Taylor-Johnson burst onto the scene and into the hearts of many teenage girls when he was seen in Kick-A*s. His fanbase began to grow, but it seems that many fans were already aware at that point that he was in a relationship with Sam Taylor-Wood. The couple got together back in 2008 when Aaron was just 18 years old and Taylor-Wood was 42.
Many fans thought this kind of age gap was too much for their relationship to actually last. The couple announced their engagement in 2009 before they later married in 2012. Johnson has been seen as a heartthrob for most of his career but it seems that his personal life has been the topic of a lot of discussion. Despite this, the couple have remained together for the past six years and now have two daughters together. It seems that despite the 240-year age gap, this couple is making this relationship work.
9 Pierce Brosnan And Keely Shaye Smith
Pierce Brosnan was once considered to be one of the most handsome men in the world when he landed the role of James Bond back in the 1990s. Brosnan has since aged over the past two decades, but he still has a smouldering appeal about him that allows many women to still see his films.
When it comes to his personal life, Brosnan has been married twice. After he lost his first wife Cassandra Harris back in 1991 to ovarian cancer, he then met American journalist Keely Shaye Smith in Mexico back in 1994 when the TV correspondent was sent to interview him. A few days later they had their first date and were then married in 2001, despite Brosnan always stating that he would never date again after his first wife's tragic passing. Brosnan is still one of the most iconic men alive and it seems that his wife's appearance pales in comparison.
8 Jamie Dornan And Amelia Warner
Jamie Dornan made the best decision of his life when he auditioned for the role of Christian Grey in Fifty Shades of Grey since he has become a heartthrob all over the world for his portrayal of the star in the film adaptations of the books of the same name by E.L. James. Dornan was voted the second s*xiest man alive last year by Glamour magazine, but it seems that he hasn't been able to find a woman at the same level.
Dornan dated actress Keira Knightly up until 2005 and then went on to a relationship with English actress and songwriter Amelia Warner. It seems that the relationship began back in 2010 and the couple married in 2013, which was before he was cast in the Fifty Shades of Grey films. The fact that he is now a big star has led to many female fans wondering what it is he sees in his wife of five years since she his not considered to be in his league.
7 Chris Hemsworth And Elsa Pataky
Chris Hemsworth has become a hunk in his own right over the past few years, ever since he was cast as Thor in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It seems that being a god has given Hemsworth a much bigger fanbase than he had before and has opened him up to being seen on the walls of many teenage girls.
Hemsworth has also starred as The Huntsman in the Snow White series and it seems that this has only proved to boost his female followers. Sadly, Hemsworth broke a number of hearts when he announced that he was marrying Spanish actress Elsa Pataky back in 2010. The couple has three children together and live in Australia together ever since they decided to relocate back in 2015. Hemsworth is one of the most famous male celebrities in the world and it seems that there are many women who feel that his wife isn't up to par.
6 Zac Efron And Rebecca Ferguson
Zac Efron has been a popular star with many teenage fans ever since he portrayed Troy Bolton in High School Musical back in 2006. Since then the actor has hit the gym and shown off a fantastic physique that has only garnered him even more female attention.
Efron has been part of some of the biggest films that have been produced over the past few years and it seems that he has had his own fair share of partners over the past few years too this began when he was linked to co-star Vanessa Hudgens. They then broke up back in 2010 and he began a relationship with model Sami Miró a few years later. It seems that Efron has most recently been linked to The Greatest Showman co-star Rebecca Ferguson. Ferguson recently revealed that she was expecting her second child, but it is unknown where this leaves her rumoured relationship with Efron.
5 Liam Hemsworth And Miley Cyrus
Liam Hemsworth obviously came from a family that has great DNA, since both he and his brother are seen as among the most handsome men in Hollywood. Even though Liam is the younger brother who isn't a member of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, he still managed to inherit the looks that the family has become known for.
Liam starred alongside actress and singer Miley Cyrus when they were filming The Last Song back in 2009. The two were then part of a relationship in the years that followed before they announced that they were engaged back in 2013. The two then called off their engagement in 2014 before then being linked back together in 2016. The couple is currently engaged once again and it seems that because of Miley's reputation over the past few years, many fans feel that Liam is too good for his longtime girlfriend and await the breakdown of their relationship once again.
4 Ed Sheeran And Cherry Seaborn
Ed Sheeran burst onto the scene back in 2011 with his single "The A-Team" and has since been seen as one of the biggest music artists in the world. Sheeran's "Perfect" single was the biggest song of the year in 2017 and he has broken a number of records in the past with some of the biggest songs that the charts have ever seen.
Sheeran has written some of the most perfect songs for women over the past few years, which is why his fanbase is mostly made up of women, many of which were left broken-hearted when he announced that he was in a relationship with childhood friend Cherry Seaborn back in 2015. The couple has been together ever since and announced that they were engaged back in 2015. Sheeran has a lot of loyal female fans who feel that Cherry isn't in Ed's league, but it seems that these fans are wrong since the two are still going strong after almost three years together.
3 Charlie Hunnam And Morgana McNelis
Charlie Hunnam first became seen as a heartthrob when he was cast as Pete Dunham in Greet Street. He has since moved on to gain critical acclaim and most importantly, a whole lot of female attention, for his role as Jax Teller in Sons of Anarchy. It seems that Hunnam was seen as so attractive that he was one of the original options for Christian Grey when the director was casting Fifty Shades of Grey a few years ago.
Hunnam has always been popular with his female fans but it seems that he isn't a man that cares much about looks. He met his first wife at an audition for Dawson's Creek back in 1999 and the couple then married in Las Vegas after dating for just three weeks. After this ended in divorce in 2001, it took Hunnam a few years but he began dating artist Morgana McNelis in 2005 and almost 13 years later the two are still happy. So it seems that it isn't all about looks after all...
2 Daniel Radcliffe And Erin Darke
Daniel Radcliffe definitely found himself on the bedroom wall of a number of teenage girls when he was portraying Harry Potter, but it seems that the actor has since moved on to much more serious roles as he hopes to break the Harry Potter mould that has been following him around over the past few years.
Radcliffe has literally grown up in the public eye after being cast in Harry Potter when he was just 11 years old. This has obviously put a strain on many of his romantic relationships, but it seems that ever since 2012 the former child star has been linked to Erin Darke. The two were even rumoured to have become engaged back in 2014, but these rumours were not substantiated. It seems that because of who he is, Radcliffe has a lot of female attention and it seems that Erin doesn't match what fans feel Radcliffe deserves.
1 Tom Hardy And Charlotte Riley
According to Glamour magazine and a lot of female fans all around the world, Tom Hardy is currently one of the most desired men in Hollywood, and many think that his wife should be just as beautiful as he is.
The Peaky Blinders star has become quite popular with the females over the past few years, ever since his portrayal of Bane in Christopher Nolan's Batman series. Hardy first married back in 1999 but this ended in divorce back in 2004 before he then moved on to a relationship with assistant director Rachael Speed. The two have a son together but they still separated in 2009. Ever since 2009 Hardy has been in a relationship with actress Charlotte Riley, whom he met on the set of Wuthering Heights.
