    What a great topic @Emelee :gotcha:

    I have several favorite celebrity couples both past and present.

    I will start with the historic couples and I don't think anyone will be surprised when I say that my most favorite is this couple:

    tumblr_lkk755ZzmC1qgm0o2o1_400.jpg
    Elizabeth Taylor & Richard Burton.:kiss:
    This couple were married for 10 years between 1964-1974. They met and fell in love on the set of Cleopatra (1963). Despite the fact that they were both married to others at the time they eventually got divorced and got married each other. After about ten years of marriage they got divorced but since they still loved each other they got remarried a year later. Unfortunately the relationship didn't last. But I do believe that they never stopped loving each other.

    Here's a fan music video tribute that I've made to them:



    Going further back in time I also love this couple:

    60lnlc9bh80ynlcy.jpg

    Laurence Olivier & Vivien Leigh:kiss:
    This couple were married for 20 years between 1940-1960. They were very much in love but had a turbulent life together. I think the reason it didn't last was because of Vivien's illness. She was bipolar. Anyway she's of course most known for being Scarlett O'Hara in Gone With the Wind and he's also got an impressive career. Together they were considered the king and queen of the British Theatre for years.


    Here's a fan music video tribute that I've made to them:



    and this couple:

    adam-s-rib-from-left-spencer-tracy-katharine-hepburn-1949.jpg

    Spencer Tracy & Katharine Hepburn
    They met when filming Woman of the Year (1942). But he was married and Catholic so he wouldn't divorce his wife for her. Yet they had a relationship for 20 + years that lasted until he died in 1967. Considering that they were never an official couple they weren't seen in public all that often. They co-starred together in several movies though.

    So the tribute video I've made to them focus on the movies they made together:



    That's it for the famous celebrity couples of the past who has graced our silverscreens...


    More favorite celebrity couples to follow later...:l9:

    Who are they @Grant Jennings ?

    Also I thought I'd post some more favorites of mine...and we are still on the past.

    When I was a child I had three favorite celebrity couples...


    The first one was this royal couple:

    charles-diana-3-79086cb3-3346-40b4-b1e8-b8f6599187af_smaller.jpg
    Prince Charles & Princess Diana of Wales

    They were married between 1981-1995. A lot of people thought it was a fairytale marriage until we all wisened up in 1992 when it became known how unhappy the union had turned out to be. In retrospect maybe it would have been better if Prince Charles had married his Camilla from the start instead. It would have saved Diana a lot of heartache. Yet at the same time their union did give us Prince William and Prince Harry and now also their children. So in that sense it was a successful marriage. Also I do believe that Prince Charles and Princess Diana had some happy moments.

    In fact I've made a fan video to them as well focusing on the early years of their marriage:



    I also loved this royal couple:

    principe-andres-1-a.jpg
    Prince Andrew & Fergie (Sarah the Duchess of York)
    They were married between 1986-1996. In my opinion they never should have gotten divorced as they clearly still love each other. Officially they are no longer together but they apparently still live in the same house and are best friends at the very least. So who knows if they are still a couple or not. :think:

    I've made a fan video to them too:



    Finally I also liked this celebrity couple:

    33fb9b28-28b7-41dc-9532-f39befc196dd.jpg

    Carola Häggkvist & Runar Sörgaard
    She's a Swedish Singer and he's a Norwegian preacher man. They were married between 1990-2000. I remember being really surprised when they got divorced as I had really thought they would make it. But I guess they weren't as well suited as I thought.

    I have not made any fan video to them.

    I have two more celebrity couples from the past before we move into the present.

    The first couple is:
    p61.jpg

    Elvis & Priscilla Presley
    They were married in between 1967-1973. I read her autobiography book about her life with Elvis when I was 14 and that made me interested in the pair. Sadly I do believe he was the love of her life even though I think she did the right thing when she divorced him.

    The second couple is:

    Larry_0010m.jpg
    Larry & Maj Hagman

    They were married for 50 + years. In Hollywood that is pretty remarkable. Also unlike all other celebrity couples I like I have actually met them and they were both really nice. :)

    Moving on to present celebrity couples who are still together:

    I think my most favorite would be this royal couple:

    article-2078181-00BC91EF00000190-176_306x423.jpg
    Queen Elizabeth & Prince Philip

    They got married in 1947 and have been married for 70 + years. In a way they remind me of my grandparents who also got married in 1947 and were married for 65 years.
    At the same time the couples are nothing alike except for being from the same generation. Anyway right now I am watching "The Crown" and it has given me a better understanding of the early years of the queen and Prince Philips' marriage. I do think it's great that they are both still alive and together. I think most people would wish to find that kind of life-long relationship.

    I also love this couple:

    092512-freddie-prinze-jr-sarah-michelle-gellar-baby-340.jpg
    Sarah Michelle Gellar & Freddie Prinze Jr.
    They have been married since 2002. I think it's great that they've made their marriage work. They are so cute together. :)

    I also think this is a great couple:

    goldie-hawn-kurt-russell-hollywood-walk-of-fame.jpg

    Goldie Hawn & Kurt Russell
    They met in 1983. They've never gotten married to each other but it seems to be working for them.

    Then I have some more favorite royal couples of today like:

    royal-wedding-princess-victoria-prince-daniel-of-sweden.jpg
    Princess Victoria & Prince Daniel of Sweden
    She is the crown princess of Sweden. Back in 2010 she got married to a man of the people and I was glued to the TV for hours watching their wedding. I think the best part about this couple is that they seem so normal even though they are royalties.

    princess_mary_and_frederick_getty.jpg
    Prince Frederik and Princess Mary of Denmark
    This Danish Royal couple who is next in line to the throne. She is Australian. I have liked this couple since I watched their wedding on TV in the early 2000s.
    I thought it was so moving how the groom was moved to tears when he first caught sight of his bride.

    william.jpg

    Prince Harry & Meghan Markle Prince William & Kate Middleton
    Harry and Meghan got married last year. William & Kate have been married since 2011.

    So well I think this is it for my favorite celebrity couples. :)


    Now who are your favorite celebrity couples?

    A couple of them, but I Googled "celebrity couples" for a good picture, and chose that one.

    I will post my favorites when I'm on my computer instead of the phone.

    One of my top favorite celebrity couples were Brangelina. The chemistry was off the charts.

    My favorite couple that's still together is Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis. They too had terrific chemistry when they were on That 70s show together, and I always thought they should get together. But back then their age difference was too much, as Mila was only 14 (!) at the beginning of the series. However, the age gap now that she's 30+ is unnoticeable.

    Other celebrity couples I like include:
    Sarah Michelle Gellar & Freddie Prinze Jr
    Kit Harington & Rose Leslie
    Peter Sellers & Britt Ekland
    Bruce Willis & Demi Moore
    Elizabeth Taylor & Richard Burton
    Julia Roberts & Danny Moder
    Goldie Hawn & Kurt Russell

    Brian Benben and Madeleine Stowe

    They may seem like an odd couple but they've been married since '82 and both have successful careers in Hollywood.

    Joe Mangianello and Sofia Vergara seem like they'd be great fun to hang out with. And so, so pretty! When two intensely beautiful people like this come together, the US government ought to mandate they have as many beautiful children as possible, to make sure those beautiful children cancel out some of these ugly people having packs of equally ugly children.
