Oh, Word? Stars We Didn’t Realize Were Married To One Another In The Past And Present

Excuse us, but we’ve been living under a rock. We didn’t realize that the same people we watch on our favorite shows and in our favorite movies were married to one another at some point in time. While some of these star couples are still going strong, a majority signed them papers and hit the road.

Must be awkward to run into one another at awards shows.

But life and the show must go on. Check out the stars we didn’t know were married to one another in the past and present.

Geena Davis And Jeff Goldblum

And here we thought that they just starred alongside one another in that hella creepy movie The Fly. Davis and Goldblum were actually married from 1987 to 1990.


Michelle Pfeiffer And David E. Kelley

The actress we all know and love from an array of classic films (including her turn as Catwoman in Batman Returns) has been married to award-winning television writer David E. Kelley since 1993. He is the genius behind hit shows like Ally McBeal, The Practice, and Boston Public.

Jennifer Garner And Scott Foley

Say what?! Ben Affleck’s wife and Jake from Scandal were married? That’s right, Jennifer Garner and Scott Foley were Mr. and Mrs. from 2000 to 2004 after initially meeting on the set of Felicity in 1998.


Bradley Cooper And Jennifer Esposito

Before you knew or cared about Bradley Cooper, the actor was married to actress Jennifer Esposito (of Summer of Sam and Crash fame) for a brief time. And when I say briefly, I mean 2006-2007.

Uma Thurman And Gary Oldman

The woman who played Beatrix Kiddo in Kill Bill, and the talented actor we still call Commissioner Gordon based on his work in Christopher Nolan’s reboot of the Batman franchise were married from 1990-1992. Talk about a throwback!

Rachel Weisz And Daniel Craig

This is the happiest we’ve ever seen James Bond look!

But seriously, who knew that Rachel Weisz (my imaginary friend from The Mummy franchise) and Daniel Craig are married? The English actors tied the knot in 2011.

Elizabeth Moss And Fred Armisen

Familiar faces, right?

That’s because you’ve seen Fred Armisen on Saturday Night Live and Portlandia, and Elizabeth Moss in Mad Men as Peggy Olson. The pair married in 2009 before deciding to part ways in 2011.

Madonna And Sean Penn

Not only were Madonna and Sean Penn married, but they were married for more than a hot second. They were together from 1985-1989, a very volatile time, as the actor was charged with felony domestic assault against the legendary singer at one point.

Brooke Shields and Andre Agassi

How cute were they?! The actress and former model was married to the retired tennis pro for two years: 1997-1999. While the marriage was a quick one, they had been dating since 1993. I wonder what went wrong?

Lorraine Bracco And Edward James Olmos

The Stand and Deliver actor and the Goodfellas (and don’t forget about The Sopranos!) star were Mr. and Mrs. from 1994 to 2002. Sadly, they spent a majority of that time separated.

Kiefer Sutherland And Julia Roberts

Okay, so these two didn’t make it down the aisle, but just as they were about to, Roberts really did get her Runaway Bride on. Three days before their wedding (scheduled for June 14, 1991), Roberts broke off their engagement. On the day they were supposed to tie the knot, she jetted off with his friend Jason Patric for a vacay in Ireland. Cold-blooded…
