Charlie Chaplin with his third (and last) wife, 1943
Oona O’Neil was the lucky lady who got to be Charlie Chaplin’s last wife, after his two other failed marriages. They met when she auditioned for a role in one of Chaplin’s films.
It was love at first sight and the two got married shortly after their first meeting, when Chaplin was 53 years old and Oona was only 18. The couple’s love was stronger than it seemed, and though everyone believed the marriage was bound to fail, they stayed together until Chaplin died in 1977.
