Not as fast as we would like: long engagement of stars
The whole world watched the development of their relationship. They then parted, then converged, but did not rush to go to the altar. Wedding brought together eight couples who took more than one year to decide on marriage.
Isla Fisher and Sasha Baron Cohen
One of the strongest and funniest couples in Hollywood this year celebrated its tenth wedding anniversary. The actors met in 2002, and two years later announced their engagement. The paparazzi constantly caught the happy couple on dates and wondered when the wedding would be. A little later, the actors themselves told about this in an interview. Making an offer, Sasha Baron-Cohen set a condition for his future wife: before marriage, Isla must convert to Judaism. It took the actress some time, and six years after the engagement, the wedding still took place.
Julianne Moore and Bart Freundlich
Julianne Moore often says in interviews that her husband and children are the most important thing in life for her. However, the actress did not immediately manage to create a strong family. After the first unsuccessful marriage, she was in no hurry to remarry. Julianne Moore and director Bart Freundlich married in 2003, eight years after their engagement. According to the actress herself, this was done for the sake of children and solving legal issues.
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt
They fell in love on the set of Mr. and Mrs. Smith and immediately became the most beautiful couple in Hollywood. For Angelina’s sake, Brad divorced his wife (star of the TV series “Friends” Jennifer Aniston) and adopted her child. For seven years of marriage, the couple had six children: three adopted and three biological. The tabloids wondered when the wedding would be, but the actors assured that they were fine without a stamp in their passport. But in 2014, the couple decided to legalize their relationship. Two years later, the actors filed for divorce, citing “irreconcilable differences” as the reason.
Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux
After a divorce from Brad Pitt, Jennifer for a long time could not decide on a serious relationship. That all changed when she met actor Justin Theroux in 2011. The actors began a whirlwind romance, and a year later they announced their engagement. Due to the busy work schedule, the celebration was postponed for three years, but in 2015 Justin and Jennifer got married. The marriage was short-lived: in February 2018, the actors broke up.
Mila Jovovich and Paul Anderson
Their romance began on the set of Resident Evil. A year after the premiere, they got engaged, but in 2003 they suddenly broke up. Soon Mila and Paul realized that they could not live without each other, and renewed their relationship. The birth of a daughter in 2007 made the couple seriously think about the wedding. Two years later, they solemnly exchanged vows in the presence of those closest to her at her villa in Beverly Hills. And recently, the family replenished again: Mila gave birth to a third daughter.
Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth
Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth are another couple who brought on-screen relationships to life. After filming the melodrama “The Last Song”, Miley and Liam became inseparable, and three years later they decided to get married. Then it never came to the wedding: in 2013 they parted. Three years later, Miley and Liam got back together, and in 2018 they exchanged rings in a secret ceremony. The couple’s family happiness lasted only a year. In January 2020, the divorce proceedings were officially completed.
Amy Adams and Darren Le Gallo
They dated for 14 years before getting married. When Darren proposed to Amy in 2008, her career took off. The celebration was postponed several times due to filming, and then the actress became pregnant. It was decided to play the wedding after giving birth, when the couple’s daughter grows up a little. The joyful event took place in May 2015 in the presence of family and close friends of the couple.
Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green
Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green met when she was 18 and he was 30. Two years after the start of the relationship, the actors announced that they were engaged. Meghan soon landed the lead role in Transformers, and the wedding preparations had to be postponed. In 2009, the couple had a big fight and canceled the wedding. But in 2010, Brian and Megan changed their minds and flew to the islands together to quietly get married without prying eyes.
