13 Celebrities That Never Got Married
While you would expect that fame and success inevitably bring luck to your love life, it doesn’t really seem to be the case. Yet some of the stars simply don’t want to lead a married life, others just never had luck in love. Some of these world famous celebrities were even left at the altar, others were engaged but then suddenly separated with their long-standing partner!
Not even children could make up some of these love stories. Although these stars are incredibly talented, when it comes to love life they simply can’t catch a break (or are they collecting too many break-ups?! ).
However, the greatest surprise for me was to discover why Danica Patrick swore to never get married — Read on to find out!
1. Kylie Minogue
The Australian singer has had success in different fields of entertainment. She even worked as a model and an actress. That brought Minogue to plenty of new contacts and people that wanted to seduce her.
The closest she got to getting married was her engagement to her now-ex-fiance Joshua Sasse. Their relationship didn’t last for long. Today, she says she doesn’t necessarily need the security of a relationship and that she enjoys the freedom to make her own choices.
2. Owen Wilson
Owen Wilson started off as a regular comedy actor but risen to be one of Hollywood’s most appreciated actors. He acted in numerous amazing movies and is remembered for his roles (especially the ones he had in Wes Anderson’s movies).
Wilson worked with stars of the acting world such as Julia Roberts, Jackie Chan, and Bill Murray. The 50-year-old actor has two children today, a son with his ex-girlfriend Jade Duell and a second son with Caroline Lindqvist. Despite being a father of two children, Wilson never got married.
3. Eva Mendes
The gorgeous actress Eva Mendes had her big break in the 2000s after she already started her acting career. The movie Training Day helped her gain worldwide recognition and fame. Since then, she played roles in classic movies such as Once Upon a Time in Mexico and Hitch.
But, this beauty has never been married! She is in a relationship with Ryan Gosling since 2011, and the couple even has two kids. Eva and Ryan decided not to tie the knot, and enjoy their love and family just the way it is.
4. Jon Hamm
Jon Hamm is most known for his portrayal of Don Draper, the main character of the famous television series Mad Men. His acting in the show earned him a ton of awards(and fame too). He also starred in shows like Black Mirror, Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp, and Parks and Recreation.
His acting earned him admiration of the critics, but also of a very wide female audience. But has any of these women sparkled a desire in him to tie the knot? It doesn’t seem so. Although Jon Hamm was in a relationship with Jennifer Westfeldt from 1997 to 2015 (for almost 20 years), the couple never got married. But we were shocked to discover that another, world famous actor has never married and isn’t planning to marry any soon. Read on to discover who he is!
5. Oprah Winfrey
The famous TV show host and one of the richest women in the U.S.A. has had a lot of success in the entertainment world. Although she has thousands of amazing contacts thanks to her Oprah Show that hosted the most influential people from all over the world, she never found someone that she would like to marry.
In the mid-80s, Winfrey dated Roger Ebert and had a lot of love affairs until she met Stedman Graham. He has been her partner for over 25 years, but the two never tied the knot. And it looks like that won’t change any soon. Some couples simply prefer not to be tied with papers, and enjoy their relationship the way it is. The next person on this list has a pretty low profile love life, so it doesn’t surprise us that he didn’t marry yet.
6. John Cusack
Whoever loves cinema must know this name. This American actor, producer, and screenwriter has been acting in films since the early 1980s. He starred in many movies such as Better Off Dead, Grosse Pointe Blank, Being John Malkovich, High Fidelity, Igor, and The Raven.
His love life is usually seen as a low profile one, but he has however been involved with several actresses. He dated Neve Campbell, Minnie Driver, and his Say Anything co-star Lili Taylor. But, none of them made him want to tie the knot. Read on to discover who is the famous ladies man that never proposed to any of his gorgeous girlfriends.
7. Marisa Tomei
Marisa Tomei is an American actress of Italian ancestry. Her mom was an English teacher and corrected her heavy Brooklyn accent when she was really small. Marisa’s talent for acting was undeniable, as she starred in a lot of big-name movies, and as a result of her great performance, she won the Best Supporting Actress Oscar for My Cousin Vinny.
Marisa was linked to several famous actors and singers, such as Robert Downey Jr., Christian Slater, and even Lenny Kravitz. She was also engaged to Logan Marshall-Green until 2012, but they never married and eventually broke up.
8. Leonardo DiCaprio
A surprise to a lot of us is that Leonardo DiCaprio has never been married! Being such a handsome man, it is really hard to believe. However, it seems that Leo is really enjoying his private life nonetheless.
He is known to have a really active dating life that includes some really gorgeous women. He has been dating Gisele Bundchen from 2000 to 2005 and has been emotionally involved with Israeli model Bar Rafaeli from 2005 to 2011. However, it seems that he didn’t propose any of the beauties.
9. Tyra Banks
Wherever Tyra Banks appears, she’s in an instant spotlight. She wasn’t only the world’s biggest supermodel, but she also started her career in producing and TV.
Even though Tyra is in her 40s now, she doesn’t want to rush and it looks like she still won’t be getting married. However, she is in a relationship with Erik Asla, with whom she has a son.
10. Adrien Brody
Adrien Brody is a very talented American actor and producer. His career skyrocketed after his role in The Pianist, for which he won the Academy Award for Best Actor at age of only twenty-nine, which made him the youngest actor to win in that category.
The actor has appeared in plenty of successful movies after it, and similarly to Owen Wilson, he starred in a lot of Wes Anderson’s films. But what’s with Brady’s love life? The actor never got married but was namely dating Tori Amos, Keira Knightley, and January Jones.
11. Winona Ryder
Winona Ryder is popular since the late 80s. Her roles in movies Edward Scissorhands, Girl, Interrupted, and Heathers are just some of those that made her career skyrocket. However, her rebellious style made her a sweetheart that a lot of men dreamed of.
In fact, she was engaged to Johnny Depp, but their relationship ended. She also dated Matt Damon and Keanu Reeves. Today, she’s in a relationship with Scott Mackinlay Hahn but she doesn’t see marriage happening not even 6 years spent together.
12. Benicio del Toro
Benicio del Toro emerged in the 1990s as one of the most charismatic character actors in Hollywood. The Puerto Rican actor played roles in all kinds of movies, from crime over drama to comedy movies. However, his appearance in Traffic earned him an Academy Award, BAFTA Award, Golden Globe Award, and Screen Actors Guild Award.
However, despite his worldwide popularity, not much is known about the actor’s personal life. It is only known that Benicio del Toro has a daughter with Kimberly Stewart (Rod Stewart’s daughter), despite never being in a relationship.
13. Danica Patrick
Finally, Danica Patrick, one of the most popular athletes in the world right now and the girl that is as beautiful as she is fast in driving cars, isn’t married at all.
Will something change now that she’s in a serious relationship with NFL quarterback Aaron Rodgers? Her fans are more than curious to find out if Rodgers is her final choice, or is just another stepping stone.
