Celebrities such as actors, musicians, and other superstars pretty much have their pick of who they’d like to marry, so it’s always interesting to learn about celebrity wives. Let’s take a look at some famous celebrity wives from years past and see what they’re doing now.
This couple’s love story emerged out of a tragedy. Pierce Brosnan had, very recently, lost his wife and mother of his three children to cancer when he met Keely Shaye Smith. The two hit it off right away. Brosnan, in an interview, said that he “felt she was missing wherever he would go in the world”, so he would send her tickets so they could be together. They were married on April 8, 1994. Soon after, the couple welcomed two more children into the world. They have stayed together all of these years, through thick and thin. This is a celebrity couple we can look up to.
Priscilla married one of the most famous stars of all time when she said her vows with none other than Elvis Presley himself. They met when Priscilla was just 14 years old and didn’t marry until eight years later in 1967. A few years later, daughter Lisa Marie was born. Unfortunately, the two would ultimately divorce a few years before Elvis passed away in 1977. Still, she’s known as one of the most famous celebrity wives.
Nielsen looked like she’d become a star when she appeared in Rocky IV as Ivan Drago’s cold-hearted Russian wife. It seemed even more like she was headed for stardom when she married the film’s leading man, action star Sylvester Stallone. However, neither her acting career or their marriage would go as intended, and they divorced after just two years together. She has been married five times in total.
Some celebrity wives are very famous in their own right. Flockhart met Harrison Ford at the 2002 Golden Globe Awards and the two hit it off. They would end up getting married in 2010, adding an adopted son to their family a year later. The two are still in love and have been very successful, with Ford recently reprising his role as Han Solo in Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Flockhart landing a role in the Supergirl TV series.
