Celebrities Who Married Non-Famous People

The Budget Savvy Bride

Hollywood marriages and relationships aren’t famous for their stability. It may be more convenient for celebrities to get divorced because both people are usually financially well-off, which makes going it alone a lot easier.

Dating a celebrity can be hard no matter what; and if one-half of the couple isn’t famous, things can easily become even more problematic. 

Celebrities Who Married Non-Famous People

Stacker combed through bio pages and news reports to see which famous people married non-celebrity counterparts. Some couples are just starting out, while others have been together for decades.

The two met in 2003, while Barroso was bartending and Damon was filming “Stuck on You.” Damon says he saw his future wife from across the room and headed straight over for a conversation. Barroso, who tells the story a little differently, says “The Martian” actor was just trying to hide from fans. Even though he was becoming famous, that didn’t stop her from putting him to work behind the bar.

The “Wonder Woman” star is married to Yaron Versano, an Israeli real estate developer. The two married in 2008, two years after they met through mutual friends at a “very strange party in the Israeli desert.”
