Unless you’ve been living under a rock, the divorce of Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise has saturated the media. The gossip fiends are getting their lives with the break up but some couples under the same Hollywood glare are still going strong. Denzel and Paulette Washington, Will and Jada Smith, Jay Z and Beyoncé are just some of those standard bearers.
The following couples have also gotten stronger with time…
How did two of the prettiest people on earth manage to keep their marriage going for twenty years? We don’t know but more celebrity couples need to obviously consult with this very dynamic duo. Iman and David Bowie recently celebrated 20 years of marriage, and even longer in courtship. They met in 1990 on a blind date (how does that even happen?) and haven’t looked back since.
The couple have one daughter between them, 12 year old Alexandria Zahra; Iman has a daughter from a previous relationship, 34 year old Zulekha Haywood, and David Bowie has a son from a previous marriage named Zowie Bowie (isn’t that name just whimsical?).

Congrats to the happy couple on reaching such a happy milestone. Check out this pic that Iman tweeted of her and her hubby back in the day.

But on the opposite end of the color spectrum, there aren’t many white Hollywood men you can think of off the top of your head running around snapping photos arm-in-arm with African-American women. Maybe that’s why it’s so surprising, or dare I say, exciting, when you find out that someone with heavy Hollywood clout is courting a black woman. But you’d be surprised to find that a number of high profile figures of the whiter persuasion in music and film have a track record of dating, are currently dating, have dated, and love them some sistahs. Here’s just a few.
