“I said yes, y’all!!!” “Empire,” Empress Taraji Henson gushed. That’s how she captioned a photo of her sparkling rock on Instagram in 2018. Ex-NFL Super Bowl and great Kelvin Hayden set the date for spring 2020. Work schedules, family plans, and logistical problems bumped the wedding date again and again. Henson wrote, “I don’t think people understand what goes into wedding planning.”
Alas, after a two-year engagement, Henson announced that plans to marry were canceled. Permanently. Henson hasn’t managed to repeat the success she had in “Empire,” and Hayden, well, he has been working very hard to keep out of the limelight.
Diane Kruger and Norman Reedus
Diane Kruger and Norman Reedus ("Walking Dead") publish social media PDAs all the time. These affections, however, are reserved for their darling daughter. At the same time, they are so super-private they have refused to include photos of her face. Plus, they’ve yet to announce her name!
The couple came out as an item in 2017 and welcomed their daughter in 2018. When the paparazzi caught an image of their daughter, actress Kruger responded forcefully. Blurring out her child’s face, she reposted it, asserting, “We, as parents, want nothing more than to allow her to grow up in privacy and safety.”
Gwyneth Paltrow and Brad Falchuk
This pair met on "Glee." With Brad Falchuk as co-creator and Gwyneth Paltrow on as a guest star, their behind-the-scenes romance was heading toward steamy by the summer of 2014. By April 2015, it was official. Relationship details are few and far between with this couple, which seems pretty counterintuitive given Paltrow’s TMI tendencies.
However, in April of 2020, they revealed the inner workings of their household. Holding down the fort with Gwyneth’s two teens can get tense. She said. “You know, we have the added dynamic of, like, stepparent,” affecting the family. Gwyneth was mostly associated with Chris Martin, Coldplay's lead singer, and they have two children, Apple and Moses.
Chris Hemsworth and Elsa Pataky
Marvel legend Thor-actor Chris Hemsworth and Elsa Pataky have enjoyed a quiet marriage in their home Down Under. But the Australian couple was spotted in the wild celebrating their 10th anniversary with holiday photos of Christmas 2020 on Instagram. The pair share three children and a lot of love.
Pataky is a Spanish actress, born in Madrid, but has been living in Australia with Hemsworth since they married. Thor returned to movie theaters in 2022 with "Love & Thunder. Fans can also get their Hemsworth fix with the Netflix exclusive "Extraction." The couple has been together for more than a decade, and it does look as if they are going anywhere.
Helen Mirren and Taylor Hackford
This couple is well-acquainted with the under-the-radar Hollywood marriage lifestyle. In 2018, they celebrated 20 years together. Helen Mirren shared that she and Taylor Hackford rang in the New Year and dined at a fish restaurant in the south of Italy to honor it. Hackford’s birthday is on New Year’s Eve, as is their wedding anniversary.
The two tied the knot at a Catholic church in Scotland and have been a loving, but not romantic, couple ever since. Mirren says she’s not into Valentine’s Day or anything like that and is just happy to spend her days with an interesting conversationalist and one of her best friends.
