13 Celebs Who Married Normal People
Otherwise known as: missed opportunities
Even if celebs may not be just like us, some of their spouses are. Here, 13 stars who married regular ol' folk with regular ol' jobs, like lawyers, bartenders, stunt drivers...?
Jimmy Fallon and Nancy Juvonen
The Tonight Show host (and coincidentally our dream husband) married Juvonen in 2007. Ever wondered why Fallon and Drew Barrymore are such good friends? Juvonen is Barrymore's film-producing partner. They met on the set of Fever Pitch and now have two daughters (with totally normal names): Franny and Winnie.
Seth Meyers and Alexi Ashe
Host of Late Night, Meyers wed Ashe, a lawyer and human-rights activist, on Martha’s Vineyard in 2013. But she's adjusted to fame well--Brad Paisley sang for their first wedding dance.
Tina Fey and Jeff Richmond
Mega-funny lady Fey dated Richmond for seven years before she married him in 2001. Richmond is a composer, producer and director (who is responsible for a handful of 30 Rock episodes, not to mention its theme song).
Julia Roberts and Danny Moder
The Oscar-winning actress has been married to her cinematographer husband for 13 years. They met while working on The Mexican and now live on a ranch in Arizona.
Matt Damon and Luciana Barroso
Damon stumbled upon Barroso, a bartender, when he was filming Stuck on You in Miami. (Fun fact: One of PureWow's very own writers witnessed this meet-cute in action.) The couple has been married since 2005.
Scarlett Johansson and Romain Dauriac
Shocker: Johansson attracts gorgeous French journalist. Gorgeous couple weds. Gorgeous daughter is born.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Tasha McCauley
Of all the plebeian spouses, Joseph Gordon-Levitt's may have the coolest job: CEO of a robotics company.
Julianna Margulies and Keith Lieberthal
The Good Wife met Lieberthal at a dinner party she almost didn’t attend. When she found out he was not an actor but a Dartmouth-educated lawyer, she was sold. They married in 2007.
Julie Bowen and Scott Phillips
A study in opposite-personalities attract, the self-proclaimed anxious actress has been married to the "calming" Phillips, a real-estate investor and software developer, since 2004.
Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Justin Mikita
It must run in the Modern Family. Ferguson married his longtime love, a lawyer, in 2013. They asked guests to donate to their marriage-equality charity, Tie the Knot, in lieu of gifts.
Christian Bale and Sibi Blazic
Bale and Blazic--a makeup artist and cameo stunt-driver--met through mutual friend Winona Ryder. The result: They’ve been married for 15 years.
Oprah Winfrey and Stedman Graham
Graham, the CEO of an educational-marketing firm, has stood by the talk-show host and billionaire's side since 1986. At this point, they might as well be married.
Meryl Streep and Don Gummer
Too cool for anyone in Hollywood, Streep wed Kentucky-born, accomplished sculptor Don Gummer. They’ve been married since 1978 and have four grown children together, including Mamie, who stars opposite Streep in Ricki and the Flash.
