When it comes to Hollywood marriages, it’s always the short-lived ones you remember, such as Cher’s nine-day marriage to Southern rock star Greg Allman; or Jennifer Lopez’ seven month marriage to dancer Chris Judd. Britney Spears holds the record for the shortest Hollywood marriage ever, when she married Jason Alexander in 2014. That lasted an entire 55 hours. On the other end of the spectrum, here are the A-List couples whose marriages have stood the test of time. Click through to discover the famous Hollywood couple that stayed married for over 60 years!
