In It to Win It: 15 Great Celeb Couples

In It to Win It: 15 Great Celeb Couples

  •  
    While famous couples don't have a great track record, we think these 15 stand a chance: Susan and Jeff Bridges. Jeff on the keys to his success "Oh, well, first thing that pops into my mind is my wife, my support, you know. She holds that kite string. Lets me go way out there, and then it's so sweet being reeled back in."
  •  
    James Brolin, Barbra Streisand. James told Access Hollywood that the key to their marriage is "getting a little tune up whenever you have some differences, get a referee to help you get through it and learn some lessons...a counselor sometimes."
  •  
    Meryl Streep, Don Gummer. Meryl's tips on everlasting love: "Goodwill and willingness to bend—and to shut up every once in a while."..."My husband understands the compulsion to create things...I think you have to have somebody as a partner who shares what you value in life."
  •  
    Johnny Depp, Vanessa Paradis. Vanessa: "Maybe I'm a good girlfriend because I'm his girlfriend. I'm not sure I'd be a good girlfriend to anyone else. There is a lot of friendship between us, respect and admiration,"
  •  
    Jay-Z, Beyonce. Though the two are not prone to public displays of affection (remember how shocked you were when Beyonce thanked her 'husband' on stage at the Grammys?) you don't have to read between the lines, er lyrics, to see that this couple is "Crazy in Love."
  •  
    Andre Agassi, Steffi Graf. When introducing Steffi during the International Tennis Hall of Fame induction ceremony Agassi said: "...We have been touched deeply by your life, you have made us better, and we will never be the same. … Ladies and gentlemen, I introduce to you the greatest person I've ever known."
  •  
    Barack and Michelle Obama. The President chose these loving and respectful words during his acceptance speech: "I would not be standing here tonight without the unyielding support of my best friend for the last 16 years...The rock of our family, the love of my life, the nation's next first lady, Michelle Obama."
  •  
    Tim McGraw, Faith Hill. It isn't always true that the couple who tours together stays together, but for these two it's looking good. Faith: "You can't sit back. My husband and I have made the choice that our marriage is the most important thing to us. We respect what we have and understand how we need to feed it."
  •  
    Judd Apatow, Leslie Mann. Sometimes art imitates life: Judd cast Leslie as the love of the protagonist's life in Funny People. Apatow has said: I never settle in. I feel like we've been dating for three weeks, and she might turn on me. It's been amazing working with Leslie. She's a hard-core actress while being viciously funny."
  •  
    Goldie Hawn, Kurt Russell. Together with Kurt since 1983, Goldie has said: I think the secret is to know when to depend on somebody and when not to. It's important that you are able to hold up your side of the house..."
  •  
    Heidi Klum, Seal. Heidi: "I will always want to be not only his wife, mother of his children and his best friend, but also his hot girl who keeps making effort to be attractive and fun."
  •  
    The Beckhams. Posh: "I love him more now than when I first met him... Back then, there was a certain innocence. I look back and think if only I knew then what I know now. I've toughened up a lot."
  •  
    Tom Hanks, Rita Wilson. Wilson said to Vanity Fair: "I didn't know what being in love was until I met Tom," Hanks has said: It was a love that was unconditional."
  •  
    Christy Turlington, Ed Burns. Ed on Christy's support for his career: "When someone has your back where it relates to your dreams, that's invaluable."
  •  
    Ewan McGreggor, Eve Mavrakis. Ewan, who married Eve in 1995, on marriage: "it's the start of a brilliant world."
