Long Married Hollywood couples.

Angie and Billy Bob, Lisa Marie and Nicolas (and Michael), J Lo and Ben-- no wait, that hasn’t happened yet-- these didn’t make me start thinking of long lasting celebrity couples. It was Valerie and Eddie breaking up that got me thinking about the couples who last. A few supercouples jumped right into my head:
Jessica Tandy and Hume Cronyn-- 52 years (their daughter’s name is Tandy Cronyn. I just found that out.)
Ruby Dee and Ozzie Davis-- 54 years.
Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward-- 44 years.

Which of the younger couples do you think will make it that far?
Dan Ackryod and Donna Dixon-- 19 years. She doesn’t really act any more though.

Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell-- I don’t know how long they’ve been together, but it has been an awful long time.

Kate Capshaw and Steven Speilberg-- 11 years.
Who else?

Russell Crowe and Danielle Spencer - ?

Joel McCrea and Frances Dee – 57 years
Alfred Lunt and Lynn Fontanne – 55 years
George Arliss and Florence Arliss – 46 years

James and Frances (Bill) Cagney 64 years -1922 to 1986 when Cagney died.

Ronald Reagan and Nancy (Davis) Reagan – 50 years.

Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell aren’t married, but have been together a long time. IMDB says since 1983.

Not quite 50+ years, but couples who I bet last a good long time:

Kevin Kline and Phoebe Cates have been married at least 12-13 years.

Michael J. Fox and Tracey Pollan, since 1988.

Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgewick, since 1988.

But are these Hollywood couples? Lunt and Fountaine sure, but the Cagneys and Reagans?

And the couple should have a few years under their belt. Wasn’t Crowe busy breaking up Meg and Dennis’s marraige about a year or so ago?

Yeah, Kinsey, that’s what I’m talking about!

Nancy Davis acted in a dozen movies, and several television roles, in the 1950s and 1960s, before retiring.

As long as you’re picking nits here,Lunt and Fontanne were hardly a Hollywood couple.Broadway was their forte.
Matter of fact the only movie I saw them in together is a terribly hammy looking 30s movie,about,IIRC,an acting couple.What a stretch.

Not married, but Tim Robbins and Susan Sarandon have been together for 14 years.

Joel Coen and Frances McDormand - 18 years

Michael J. Fox and Tracy Pollan - 14 years

Mel Brooks and Anne Bancroft - 38 years

Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson - 14 years (1988 was a good year for celeb couples apparently)

Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver - 16 years

Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman - 20 years

Bob and Delores (she was a singer) Hope-59 yrs.and counting

Jimmy and Gloria (she an actress) Stewart 49 yrs,who incidentally were neighbors of the Jack Bennys (Mary Livingston,stage name) abt.45 yrs.

Nutz, I was going to mention Mel Brooks and Anne Bancroft. Good call, Genseric!


Jerry Stiller and Ann Meara are at 48 years.


Charlton Heston has been married to Lydia Clarke since March of 1944. That’s 58 years and counting. While Lydia isn’t an actress, I’m just impressed that their marriage has lasted this long.

Bob Hope has been married to Delores Reade (yeah, I know, not an actress) since 2/19/1934. God bless 'em, that’ll be 68 years in a few months.

No one’s mentioned Ozzy and Sharon yet? They’ve been married since the early 80s. 82 or 83, I think. With all the crap she’s put up with, she is definitely a stand-by-your-man kinda woman. And from watching the series, I think she’s Ozzy’s entire life. He wouldn’t know what to do without her. I think they’ll be together 'till death do they part.
