Hot Celebs With Average Significant Others

Hollywood relationships tend to fail more frequently than romances between us "normals." This is especially the case when two beautiful people share long days on-set away from their spouses (See: Pitt, Brad), then have love scenes to boot. But if the adage about beauty being only skin deep is true at all, then maybe some stars had the wisdom to look past the superficial to find love. Here is a list of beautiful celebrities who took the sage advice of Jimmy Soul. (Google it, youngsters.)

T.I. And Tameka "Tiny" Cottle

Rapper T.I. met his wife, Tameka "Tiny" Cottle, the year he released his debut album. He was 21-years-old at the time and just starting to make a name for himself. Tiny was a veteran of Xscape, a '90s R&B group who had already seen their heyday. Now, if we were to judge the general taste in women that hip hop stars prefer based solely on their music videos, we'd be left scratching our heads as to why T.I. ended up with Tiny. Although, years later while he served a sentence for a weapons charge, we'd get a substantial clue. Tiny allegedly violated a visitation rule regarding her hands and where they are and are not allowed to be, specifically in relation to her incarcerated husband's pants. At that point, who cares if she's a ten or not? If you're wife's willing to risk getting herself thrown in jail to hook you up like that, you put a ring on it.

Pierce Brosnan And Keely Shaye Smith

James Bond gets ladies. That's like #2 on his job description: 1. Save the world. 2. Knock boots with a model on an island. And even though Pierce Brosnan was arguably the worst Bond, why shouldn't we believe this principle applies to his real life? Keely Shaye Smith, Brosnan's second wife, probably wouldn't make the cut as a Bond girl, but she is an avid environmentalist who's worked on successful conservation efforts around the world, so she's got some smarts. Maybe their attraction is more like that of James and Miss Moneypenny, or maybe we should stop wildly speculating on a couple's marriage based solely on TBS weekend marathons. Whatever the case, they've been married for 14 years, which in Hollywood deserves a lifetime achievement award.

Hugh Jackman And Deborra-Lee Furness

Another action hero with a spouse that doesn't raise anyone's pulse is Hugh Jackman. He married Deborra-Lee Furness four years before landing the role of Wolverine in the first X-Men, which some would speculate could have changed things for the couple. Yet as of this writing, they're still together, so either those persistent gay rumors about Jackman are a complete fantasy, or Furness is the most oblivious woman on the planet. It's not like Jackman's constantly singing and dancing on Broadway in between movies. Or that the couple have a production company with another dude, who made rings for all three of them to wear as a symbol of unity. If that sort of stuff was going on, it might raise a few red flags.

Salma Hayek And Francois-Henri Pinault

Though only four years older than his stunning wife Salma Hayek, François-Henri Pinault somehow looks like he could be be her father, or at the very least doesn't look at all like a guy who should be sharing a bed with a Mexican angel. He looks like an account man at an advertising agency who says inappropriate things to interns, not the guy who's actually living Antonio Banderas' fantasy. It probably helps that Pinault is reportedly worth $15 billion, which is not to say Salma Hayek is some kind of shallow opportunist, because for even the smallest piece of that kind of fortune, there's not a whole lot we wouldn't do.

Aaron Taylor-Johnson And Sam Taylor-Johnson

Okay, this one has Oedipus complex written all over it, plus one of those hyphenated "we chose to use both surnames" combos, but before we start reaching for the barf bag, let's consider a little context. With a 23-year age difference between them, it's easy to question why Aaron—now a bonafide, ripped-body action star—chose to marry a woman who looks like J.K. Rowling's unattractive little sister. There are two things, however, that need to be considered. First, Sam directed Aaron in his first starring role in 2009's Nowhere Boy when he was still an impressionable 19-year-old, so there's your older woman/position of authority cliché right there. Second, six years later, Sam directed Fifty Shades of Grey, just in time to learn an assortment of new tricks before the dreaded seven year itch kicks in. Sorry, young starlets, but Sam Taylor-Johnson knows her way around a "playroom." What are you bringing to the table?

Christina Aguilera And Matthew Rutler

Christina Aguilera's looks are outmatched only by her amazing vocal range. So, it was a double shock when she publicly debuted yet another mole-faced man on her arm after her split from her firs —and equally rodentesque—husband, Jordan Bratman. The new man, Matthew Rutler, also reportedly controls all of Aguilera's finances despite being only professionally qualified to assist productions on a film set. Last time we checked, PAs weren't managing multi-million dollar portfolios, but good luck you kids! You're going to need it.

Shania Twain And Frederic Thiebaud

Another beautiful singer with a taste for goofy-looking dudes is Shania Twain. Her first marriage to Robert "Mutt" Lange, whose name doesn't exactly denote physical beauty, and who looks like William H. Macy if he was left in a commercial dryer all day, ended when Mutt cheated on her with Frederic Thiebaud's then-wife. Yep, you read that correctly. Shania's now married to the ex-husband of the woman Shania's first husband cheated on her with. And the kicker to it all? That woman was Shania's best friend. Ouch. Maybe that kind of revenge was worth Shania overlooking Frederic's Kenny G-like mane of hair, which admittedly, he would probably look completely fine without.

Christina Hendricks And Geoffrey Arend

Everyone knows Christina Hendricks as the curvaceous beauty, Joan, from Mad Men. As for her husband, Geoffrey Arend, who generally looks like he hasn't slept in days...well, you probably know him from absolutely nothing, or as the kid from the opening scene of Super Troopers who freaked out after eating a ton of weed and mushrooms. Granted, that's a pretty amazing singular film credit for which to be known, but does that land you the girl Roger Sterling couldn't keep? Hardly, dude. We'll probably never know the secret to how he locked her down, but for the sake of our own sanity, we'll just assume there's a body in a shallow grave somewhere that only Geoffrey Arend knows the location of. With that fact insinuating that you're a murderer, Christina, know that we could care less. Call us.
