Famous Celebrity Power Couples
Everyone loves celebrity couples. Something about two equally famous and intriguing people coming together is just so endearing. The media loves writing about these couples and for some reason, we love hearing about their relationships. This interest has birthed the phrase “power couple” and we use it to describe these rich and famous celebrity duos.
Here are some of the most well known and interesting power couples in the world today.
Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen
When it comes to two well-respected people from different industries coming together, most immediately think of Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen. She is at the top of the modeling world and he is a well respected NFL player that may be the best quarterback of all time. Of course, these two famous figures coming together certainly makes a power couple in both net worth and fame.
Even though Brady is 44 years old, he still doesn’t seem to be slowing down in his career. After playing with the New England Patriots for his entire career, Brady lit the NFL world on fire with the news that he was leaving to join the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The last few decades have not been kind to the middling Buccaneers, but the news that this elite quarterback was coming to lend a hand has really turned around the opinion of the team for fans and sports media. Now, the Buccaneers are regularly selected to win in the weekly NFL picks. The couple relocated from Massachusetts down to Tampa Bay to join the team and are now renting Derek Jeter’s luxury $29 million dollar mansion on the water.
David and Victoria Beckham
These two may be one of the original power couples, especially in the United Kingdom where they are both from. David Beckham was a wildly successful football player, and Victoria had a great career early on in the Spice Girls and has now become a fashion icon. While both David and Victoria are well known for their own lives, together they have become just as famous for the stylish outfits that they wear at parties around the UK. After meeting in 1997, they quickly became a couple and now have been married for over two decades. In every measurable way from fame, to personal wealth, industry prestige, and pop culture obsession, these two are a celebrated power couple that English tabloids still cannot stop writing about.
Jay-Z and Beyonce
When two powerful figures from the same industry get together, the results can be phenomenal. Jay-Z and Beyonce are the self-proclaimed king and queen of the music industry and frankly, who can dispute them? After meeting during the recording of the song “03 Bonnie and Clyde” rumors started flowing that the two were a couple. Playing on all the discussion they had created, the couple then released the song “Crazy in Love” which finally brought out the truth and was a smash hit in the process.
Now, the couple have been together for almost 20 years, and have left a massive impression on the world of music. However, this couple has since split away from the industry and started to focus on other business endeavors like fashion, real estate, and luxury goods. With two forces this strong working in tangent, there is nothing they can’t accomplish.
Alex Rodriguez and Jennifer Lopez
Alex Rodriguez will be remembered as one of the best baseball players of all time and Jennifer Lopez was the queen of Latin pop music for a decent stretch between the late 1990s and early 2000s. Together, this is certainly a couple that people take notice of. Rodriguez humorously predicted their relationship back in 1997, when he said that she would be a “dream date.” Years later, it seems like this is one wish that really came true.
After coming together in 2017 the two made the public announcement in an adorable way, a simple picture of the two watching a Yankees game at home that Lopez posted to her social media. The couple spent two years together before tying the knot in 2019. They are commonly seen out having dinner together at luxurious restaurants and have also been spotted shopping around for real estate. Lopez has a personal net worth around $400 million from her time as a singer and actress, and Rodriguez is worth around $350 million from his years as an MLB player.
Kanye West and Kim Kardashian
Kanye West loves to drum up some media attention and his marriage with Kim Kardashian is the gift that keeps on giving. As Kim is one of the biggest reality television stars in the US, pop culture has a strong infatuation with her and so both of their names stay in the headlines. This is certainly one couple that no one saw coming, but they have been together for over eight years and married since 2014.
The two have worked on several artistic projects and businesses together over the years. Kim was the featured model in the music video for Kanye’s “Bound 2”, and they have collaborated on his own clothing line. From the outside, this looks like a picture-perfect romance that is still going strong.
Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher
This couple is one that just warms our heart to think about. It almost seems like fate in some ways. Kunis and Kutcher met when they both acted on the hit television series That 70s Show. Years would pass before the rumors would begin to circulate that the two were dating. In between, Kutcher played lead roles in numerous films from The Butterfly Effect, Dude Where’s My Car? and My Boss’ Daughter. Kunis has been quite successful in her own right, acting in films like Black Swan and Forgetting Sarah Marshall.
In 2012, the two reconnected at the Golden Globes and Mila Kunis described it as “meeting him all over again.” By 2015, they were married. The couple have been going strong since then and Kunis has said her only regret is that they didn’t get together when they first met on the set of That 70s Show, but all that matters is they eventually found their way.
