For Javier Bardem, it’s all about “protecting us.” As such, we have few relationships revealed from the couple, and those that exist are mostly found in their onscreen love affairs. After ten years of marriage and having met in the early nineties, they’ve kept their private life sealed.
In a rare display of affection, in an acceptance speech at Cannes for the best actor award, Bardem gushed, “I share this joy with my friend, my companion, my love: Penélope: I owe you a lot, and I love you so much.” They are still going strong and are considered one of the more stable couples in Hollywood.
Cobie Smulders and Taran Killam
Cobie Smulders is a name you’ve seen in film credits way more than in gossip magazines. The Marvel actress starred in "Avengers," plus all three sequels, as SHIELD agent Maria Hill. She’s also in "Spider-Man: Far From Home" and "Captain America: Winter Soldier."
Prior to that, you’d know her in "How I Met Your Mother." On his part, Killam’s known for his long stint with SNL. Now he’s on "Single Parents." There’s at least one media story about the couple. According to Killam, who dished the deal to "Us Weekly," they fell in love on a road trip in 2005.
Maya Rudolph and Paul Thomas Anderson
This couple has been together since around 2001, but little is known about them as they have managed to keep themselves under the radar for more than two decades. Few pictures exist. When an unflattering paparazzi image that caught them walking together came out, Anderson responded with a Tweet, “We look like we’re going to kill someone.”
Maya Rudolph, the comedian we recognize impersonating Beyoncé and Kamala on SNL, calls Paul Thomas Anderson her husband and shares four children with him, but technically, the pair are not married. Love, however, has endured. When the eight-time Oscar-nominated director was asked how often Rudolph makes him fall down laughing, he said, “Everyday.”
Rose Byrne and Bobby Cannavale
Rose Byrne and Bobby Cannavale have been together for a while, since 2012, to be exact. Few know much about their relationship, but people assume they are married. It’s a valid assumption; Cannavale calls Byrne his wife. At an appearance on "The Late Show," Cannavale had to face the awkward question, “Why?”
He told James Corden it’s because he hasn’t found a better word. Neither “girlfriend” nor “partner” appeal. We have, however, seen them together. In "Adult Beginners," they play a married couple, and they also share the screen in "Annie and Spy." Lately, they’ve been taking full advantage of isolation, hunkering down with the kids.
Amanda Seyfried and Thomas Sadoski
These two dashed off together and got married in 2017. It was a surprise when they announced it on late-night television, especially since they both had been committed to one another until the fall of 2015. After an intense six-month romance, the two tied the knot. Seyfried is best recognized for her role in "Mean Girls," and Sadoski is best known for his role as Don Keefer in "The Newsroom" and playing in "Life in Pieces."
Now they have two children and a beautiful life together. We get an occasional peek at it via Instagram. On their third anniversary, Seyfried and Sadoski are pictured smooching with the message, “Happy 3, Tommy.”
