The intriguing world of Hollywood never stops amazing us and there have been many celebrity couples out there that were hot. However, these were not always the ones that gained the most popularity during the years. It was the odd Hollywood couples that shocked the world and still continue to amaze people when they hear about them.
These are our top 5 strangest Hollywood husband and wife teams:
5. Julia Roberts And Lyle Lovett
Pretty Woman star Julia Roberts had many different relationships with actors like Liam Neeson, Matthew Perry and Jason Patric. She was even engaged to Kiefer Sutherland but the most documented relationship she ever had was with Lyle Lovett. Roberts was at the height of her career and was just 25 while Lovett was an odd looking country-western singer who was 35. The media nicknamed them “beauty and the beast.” During the marriage Roberts was spotted covorting with actors Ethan Hawke and Michael Sheen and the two soon divorced. They got married in 1993 and divorced in 1995. Although it was not a long marriage, fans are still wondering what possessed them to get married in the first place.
4. Calista Flockhart And Harrison Ford
This is one odd Hollywood couple that is still going strong. They even have a child together that is 11 years old. Although Harrison Ford is 70 years old, that does not stop him from being attractive to women of all ages. It seems that former Ally McBeal star, Calista Flockhart aged 48, is the one that captured his heart in 2002. This odd Hollywood couple met when she “accidentally” spilled wine on him at the 2002 Golden Globe Awards. The couple is still going strong today in spite of their age difference.
3. Brigitte Nielson And Flavor Flav
Brigitte Nielson is no stranger to relationships with really well known public figures. She was married 5 times with Sylvester Stallone being the most notable. Brigitte even had an affair with Arnold but the one relationship that stands out was that with rapper Flavor Flav. This is mainly because it was really well profiled due to the filming of the Strange Love reality show. The odd Hollywood couple fought nonstop during the show and soon broke up when the show was over. What is interesting is the fact that Mattia Dessi, her current husband, lived with Brigitte while Strange Love was filmed.
2. Angelina Jolie And Billy Bob Thornton
We all know Angelina Jolie and the fact that she is married to Brad Pitt. Such a couple cannot go unnoticed. However, there have not been many relationships that included Angelina that were not really high profile and easy to miss. The one with Billy Bob Thornton started with a bang in 2000, when the two married. The odd thing was that she was beautiful, a rising star and from a Hollywood family while he was a plain looking country boy just starting to make it big. This is a odd Hollywood couple that quickly became popular because of the really eccentric affection showing that was going on in public. It was reported that both were wearing vials of blood from each other but it was clarified that just one drop of blood was included in the vials. Such eccentricity made the couple popular and odd at the same time. The two eventually separated in 2002 and divorce followed the next year due to his alleged womanizing.
1. Lisa Marie Presley And Michael Jackson
They are the ultimate odd Hollywood couple. Everybody knows the king of pop and there are also many that know Lisa Marie Presley is the daughter of the king of rock’n’roll. Such a relationship could not have been missed by anyone. Presley quickly married Michael Jackson after just 22 days passed from her divorce from former husband Danny Keough. Lisa was documented as being a huge reason why Michael managed to get through the child molestation charges he had to face and that is when the two started to fall in love. Eventually, Lisa Marie chose to file for divorce in 1996. The reason stated was “irreconcilable differences”. No matter what happened between the king of pop and the princess of rock’n’roll, this couple is number 1 on our list of top 5 odd Hollywood celebrity couples.
