Celebrities Who Married Ugly Spouses

We’ve all had a crush on a hot celebrity at some point, spent a couple of weeks fantasizing about marrying them and then laughed at ourselves for having such ridiculous thoughts. After all, our chances were as low as they could get, right? However, some regular people didn’t take no for an answer and somehow managed to win the hearts of celebrities that are way out of their league. But hey, maybe they have a nice personality…

Pierce Brosnan and Keely Shaye Smith

This picture says it all. Who wouldn’t want to end up hand in hand with James Bond? Well, Keely was the lucky winner. The couple met when she was interviewing him for Entertainment Tonight at a charity event. They went on to get married in 2001 in a Catholic church in Ireland. At this point, they already have two kids. Brosnan constantly declares his love for his wife, which is quite beautiful, in a way. Although Keely was way more attractive and slimmer when she first met Pierce, she’s been struggling with her weight for a few years now.
Rick Ocasek and Paulina Porizkova

Rick Ocasek and Paulina Porizkova
Rick may have been a really cool date in the 80s, but he seems to have aged faster than a rotten banana. As if his old age hasn’t treated him badly enough, Paulina, one of the world’s first supermodels, is still one of the most attractive women in showbiz and just like a good wine, she’s getting more and more attractive with time. To us, she looks as if she were hugging his grandpa in this pic. Beauty and the Beast? It’s up to you to decide!
Salma Hayek and François-Henri Pinault

Salma Hayek and François-Henri Pinault
Judging by how each of them looks, it was probably his billions that attracted Salma. And as if that wasn’t enough, this cheeky man also has a child with another out-of-his-league celebrity, model Linda Evangelista. Believe it or not, Salma was pregnant with his child at the same time. It wasn’t enough to break up this (cough) loving couple though. Anyway, as long as they’re both getting what they want, who are we to complain?
Beyoncé and Jay-Z

Beyoncé and Jay-Z
They are one of Hollywood’s favorite couples, but we all know that Jay-Z is the real winner in this relationship. Beyonce is one of the world’s hottest, most desirable women, and have you seen those incredible dance moves of hers? Now, about Jay-Z… he’s a pretty impressive rapper, but we can all agree that his looks aren’t that mind-blowing. Anyway, their careers were peaking when they got together, and Jay-Z has sort of gone backstage, while Beyonce has kept going up in popularity, looks and talent. They have a daughter together, but they haven’t released any images of her yet, so we can’t know for sure if she’s taking after her mom or dad.
Elisabetta Gregoraci and Flavio Briatore

Elisabetta Gregoraci and Flavio Briatore
Yes, these two are husband and wife, not father and daughter. Flavio is a well-known businessman and Formula One manager, while Elisabetta is the ex-model for Wonderbra. She gave birth to their son in France in 2010, even though Flavio also has a daughter from an older marriage with another model. Luckily for Elisabetta, he’s not involved at all in his daughter’s life.
Katy Perry and Russell Brand

Katy Perry and Russell Brand
It must have been Brand’s humor that made Katy Perry fall in love with him, because his looks aren’t that amazing. They got married in 2010, but their marriage only lasted for a year and a half. Apparently, Brand told her he wanted to divorce through a text and then never spoke to her again. Not such a funny man, after all. Katy said she became suicidal after the divorce, but has since recovered and right now, she’s got more fans than she could’ve ever dreamed of.
