So, here are some scandalous facts about Hollywood power couples you probably don’t know about.
John Legend and Chrissy Teigen
This Hollywood couple is always under a great deal of limelight with John Legend’s massive singing career as well as human rights involvement and Chrissy Teigen’s modeling and extended career. They now share multiple children together and have been married since 2013.
However, in the beginning, it wasn’t always swell. In fact, they broke up shortly during a major tour Legend was on due to his stress overwhelming him. Teigen’s stubborn mind and their love meant this was incredibly short lasted, and then they went on to become a great couple since.
Rita Wilson and Tom Hanks met on the set of a sitcom in 1981 when Hanks was still married to Samanta Lewes. While Hanks and Wilson seemed to have a great relationship after they married in 1988, his relationship and divorce with Lewes were messy, to say the least.
Many rumors have spread and been fairly backed up, that Tom was already seeing Rita before his divorce. Lewes even spoke about this vaguely in various interviews during the time of the divorce. In fact, their divorce papers even specified not to “molest, attack, strike, threaten” and more to each other.
Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins
This couple never married but were a big part of the limelight in Hollywood for over a decade. They lived together from 1988 to 2009 with a bit longer than that being a couple, and the two starred individually in some of the most major blockbuster movies in the 90s and 2000s.
Sarandon and Robbins caused some controversy together by presenting an Academy Award in 1993 as they chose to speak on the issue of Haitian refugees being allowed into the United States regardless of being HIV positive to give the refugees better life chances.
Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi
Ellen received a lot of controversial reactions when she came out as a lesbian in 1997 both as her character in the sitcom Ellen and as herself through the Oprah Winfrey Show. However, she recovered from that shock to her career and continued to grow.
Her marriage to Portia de Rossi was of major importance to many LGBT individuals across the world and since their marriage, the two have been Hollywood and the United States’ most well-known and powerful lesbian couples, and they both have grown their individual careers greatly.
Surprisingly (or not so surprisingly), these aren’t the only tidbits that Hollywood power couples keep under wraps or that quickly get swept under the rug when they happen. Maybe it’ll help some of us to know that even our favorite couples have their fair share of hard times or crazy moments.
