Cameron Diaz opened up to Andy Cohen on his radio show earlier this week to talk about her blossoming relationship with hubby Benji Madden. Diaz is typically private about her relationships, but admits that what she has with Madden works, and that she’s never been happier.
She stated that she doesn’t even think about her past relationships now that she’s happily married, “You know, nothing matters now that I have my husband. Like, I don’t even remember any of that. All of that is like, that’s the thing, that’s how I know he’s my husband . . . No one compares. Everything else just like washes and slips away.” Can we just cue the “awwws” for these two? So adorable.
This interview got us thinking about other Hollywood couples that have made it work. We’re talking about those A-list stars that have stood the test of time when it comes to staying together. They seriously give us couple goals.

Colin Firth on marriage “It does help to actually realize that however stunning the person who is, you know, fluttering eyelashes at you, she doesn’t do anything to match up to your wife… Maybe it’s shallow of me to have a wife that’s so beautiful but it makes things easier. To me she’s the most beautiful woman in the world.”

David Bowie and Iman
Married in 1992 until his passing in January 2016
Children: Alexandria Zahra Jones
Iman on marriage “My marriage is exactly as fabulous as you all would think. He’s fun, he’s a really very curious man, and so I really learn a lot from him…You would think that a rock star being married to a supermodel would be one of the greatest things in the world. It is.”
Of course there are so many others that we could mention: Michael J. Fox and Tracy Pollan, Tina Fey and Jeff Richmond, Sting and Trudie Styler, Ben Stiller and Christine Taylor, and of course Hollywood royalty Kirk Douglas and Anne Buydens, but the list would go on and on. Let’s just say, there’s still a lot of romance out there to find, because some things do last! Wishing all the best for Cameron and Benji.
