We may go to the movie theater to watch romantic films, but we sure don’t look to Hollywood to model our relationships.

Today, we are going to take a walk down Lovers Lane as we celebrate the 18 most enduring relationships in Hollywood!
Will Smith & Jada Pinkett Smith – 23 Years
Will and Jada Smith start off our list with a bang. As one of the most famous couples in Hollywood, the Smiths certainly have earned their spot atop our list. Will and Jada first met on the set of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. Jada had been reading for a girlfriend role opposite Will, but she would end up being rejected for being too short! 23 years later, Will and Jada Smith are two mega-stars and their children are right behind them.
Sam Elliott & Katharine Ross – 35 Years

With that being said, Broderick and Parker are still happily going almost 30 years later.
Christopher Walken & Georgianne Walken – 50 Years
