It’s not surprising, given all the glamourous stars in attendance, that Hollywood award shows make for a great opportunity to meet your future lover. After all, that red carpet is right there and it’s full of attractive people looking their absolute best. This was the case for Antonio Banderas and Melanie Griffith.
Banderas first saw Griffith at the 1989 Academy Awards and fell in love. Griffith was still married to Don Johnson at the time. It was only six years later, while co-starring in the 1995 film “Two Much”, that the pair (who were…ahem…both married at the time) got together. Well, the pair lasted together until 2014, when they eventually split.
Busy Phillips and Colin Hanks
Unlike most celebrity couples, Busy Phillips and Colin Hanks did not need the entertainment industry to put them together. There were no movie sets or award shows in their meeting story. The two met and started dating in college in 1997. The love between the two blossomed while they were both attending Marymount University.
Despite breaking up a few years later, the two have only had good things to say about one another over the years. The two remain such good friends that they've made several talk show appearances together over the years and their children (from separate relationships) even go to the same school!
Jude Law and Sadie Frost
Before the tumultuous tabloid headlines surrounding Jude Law and Sienna Miller, there was Jude Law and Sadie Frost's relationship. Law and Frost met on the set of the film 1992 film "Shopping." While Frost was married to Gary Kemp at the time, she admitted in her biography "Crazy Days," "The force of the love I felt for Jude and his intense ambition made me feel out of control."
The two got together and eventually got hitched in 1997. Jude's career skyrocketed at the time, which added great strain on the already rocky relationship. Frost eventually filed for divorce in 20013.
Hugh Grant and Elizabeth Hurley
As costars do, Hugh Grant and Elizabeth Hurley met and fell in love on the set of the 1987 film "Remando al Viento." The couple was together for an impressive 13 years (which may as well be 50 years in Hollywood time). If England hadn't already had actual royals, these two could definitely fill in that spot.
However, the relationship was far from perfect. Hugh was caught in a rather compromising position with a... let's call her a lady of the night... in 1995. Despite the shock and hurt on Hurley's part, the two stayed together for another five years before finally ending their relationship.
Pamela Anderson and Tommy-Lee
One of the most infamous couples of the 90s was undoubtedly the "two and only" Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee. The two had a rather off-beat first encounter. After locking eyes at a New Year's Eve Party in 1994, Tommy Lee licked Pamela's face. Apparently, that swept her off her feet!
In what only can be described as a whirlwind romance, Tommy and Pamela were married only days later! Unfortunately, the pair's private love life became tabloid fodder which ultimately lead to their marriage breaking down. The two share two sons — Brandon and Dylan — both of whom are making their way in entertainment.
