We spend a lot of time obsessing over image in celebrity culture. The reality that celebrity and attractiveness are as intertwined as ever before is one that many despise but no one can deny. We should be celebrating personalities not their looks. Well, you're right. We should! This is a kind and admirable wish for future media content. It is, at this point, also a pipedream. Sure, we'd love to be able to know these stars inside and out, revealing their inner truths and showcasing their real personalities to the world, but most of us don't have access to this kind of information. You could argue that no one has access to this kind of information. The only stars that are brutally honest are often hated for it. From everyone else, we get rehearsed responses and clichéd answers. So, we continue to look on from afar, and from that vantage point, we see the physicality of the star.
For the attractive celebrities, which is also the vast majority of the them, this isn't so bad. Sure, they get criticisms when they're not looking their best, but they also receive constant high praise. For the unattractive people at their sides who are thrust into the limelight, this can be a scary world. Sadly, for these poor schmucks, until people stop obsessing about the good looks, there will always be discussions about the not-so-good looks.
As consumers of celebrity culture, we've been conditioned to accept two major truths about celebrity relationships. Beautiful stars almost always marry other beautiful stars, and star marriages are insanely short-lived. Now, obviously, there are exceptions to these rules; if there wasn't, we wouldn’t have a list here. But usually the exception to a beautiful star marrying another beautiful star is that a beautiful star married a filthy rich non-beautiful star (see Beyoncé and Jay Z and many others). Yet, one of the most remarkable things that happens every so often is that a beautiful celeb will marry a completely unknown normal person. To us, they look like us. They're not Hollywood handsome or pretty; they're also not dripping with money. In a way, it gives us hope. Maybe not all celebrities are shallow, maybe we too have a chance at love with the Hollywood elite. Or not, but you see where we're going here. Here are 15 hot celebs whose partners are unattractive and unfamous.
15 Christina Hendricks and Geoffrey Arend
14 Ellen Pompeo and Chris Ivery
13 Elizabeth Banks and Max Handelman
12 Adriana Lima and Marko Jaric
11 Jenna Fischer and Lee Kirk
10 Clive Owen and Sarah-Jane Fenton
9 Jesse Williams and Aryn Drake-Lee
8 Tina Fey and Jeff Richmond
7 Cynthia Nixon and Christine Marinoni
6 Marisa Miller and Griffin Guess
5 Tobey Maguire and Jennifer Meyer
4 Scarlett Johansson and Romain Dauriac
3 Pierce Brosnan and Keely Shaye Smith
2 Hugh Jackman and Deborra-Lee Furness
1 Ewan McGregor and Eve Mavrakis
Ewan McGregor is another one of these stars in Hollywood who have aged like they don't understand what the process is supposed to look like. It's simple; you're supposed to look like you're getting older, Ewan. But instead of looking like a 45-year-old man who did enough partying for two as a young man, McGregor is stuck in state of perpetual youth. His wife of 21 years, Eve Mavrakis, however, is aging like a normal human being. She's not the leggy blonde that you might expect to be on the arm of McGregor nor is she a famous actress or even 20 years old. Mavrakis is actually older than McGregor. Still we won't even stray near calling her unattractive. We'll just say she surprised us, or rather, McGregor surprised us with his commitment.
