Just when you thought Ben Affleck and Jen Garner were going to be the celebrity couple to stay the course -after all, they have been married for 10 years, which is like the equivalent of 30 years in Hollywood years, they up and file for divorce. The kicker is that they filed on their 10-year anniversary -OUCH! Someone trying to make a statement?
Well, when we heard about Bennifer 2.0 throwing in the towel we were reminded of a piece People.com put together 10 years ago musing about whether the current star couples would stay together: Star Couples: Will It Last?
Check it out! It features, don’t laugh, Pamela Anderson and Stephen Dorff, Scarlett Johansson and Jared Leto, Cameron Diaz and Justin Timberlake, Claire Danes and Billy Crudup, Drew Barrymore and Fabrizio Moretti, Matthew McConaughey and Penelope Cruz (yes, McConaughey must have a thing for Latina women), Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore, Brandon Davis and Mischa Barton (are they even famous anymore), Gisele Bundchen and Leonardo DiCaprio and…..drum roll please…..BEYONCE and JAY-Z!
Yes, the only black celebrity couple featured in the People.com photo gallery has outlasted all of the other star couples.We know you had your doubts, we had our doubts too, but hey, it’s been 7 years of marriage so far and they’ve been together even longer than that. How’s that for beating those mythical odds about black relationships and marriage? Google it, we won’t bother repeating the biased and skewed numbers, but you can read this article on About.com that busts some of those black marriage myths.
