Molly Ringwald and Anthony Michael Hall are the perfect examples of “when a beauty dates a geek.” They both starred in the 1980’s movies, “Sixteen Candles” and “The Breakfast Club,” and dated for a short while after making these hits. These were 80s idols that were adored by teenagers all over the world who loved to see them together.
The fans grew up, and so did the stars, each going their separate way but remaining good friends until this day. Nowadays, Ringwald is married to American writer Panio Gianopoulos and shares a daughter with him. Hall is married to actress Lucia Oskerova.
Madonna and Vanilla Ice
The queen of pop dating the king of ice cream. What a strange couple they were. There was a slight age gap between the two, and according to Vanilla's story, she taught him many things he didn't know about relationships.
They dated for just under a year and broke up because Vanilla Ice didn't approve of the book she released at the time, which exposed him in a disrespectful way. Now, we ask you, Mr. Vanilla, it is known that the queen says whatever is on her mind, anywhere, anytime, and about anyone. What exactly did you expect when you started to date her?
Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman
You might have thought this golden oldie wouldn't get a mention on this list. But how could we forget the Nicole Kidman-Tom Cruise love story? Kidman met Cruise in 1989, during the filming of "Days of Thunder," and from her dating history, it seems she may have a thing for guys who are shorter than her.
On Christmas Eve of 1990, Kidman and Cruise got married. It was Cruise's second marriage at the time. They even adopted two children, Isabella Jane and Connor Anthony, while they were married. In 2001, the couple split. Cruise filed the divorce. In 2006, Kidman admitted that she still loved Cruise dearly, and it wasn't easy to totally erase him from her life.
Richard Gere and Cindy Crawford
In 1987, Richard Gere already had a resume of women he had dated, which listed, amongst others, Kim Basinger, Priscilla Presley, and a few other big names. He was the stud to end all studs. Stunning Cindy Crawford was only in her early twenties when she met Mr. Gere, which led to the two marrying in 1991.
Crawford didn't want to waste her precious twenties with the silver fox and decided to untie the knot. She was one of the hottest women alive during the 1990s, and he was, and still remains, a true charmer any woman would love to have.
Kim Basinger and Prince
The movie "Batman," which was screened in 1989, was where it all began for Kim Basinger and musician Prince. Basinger starred in the movie, while Prince was responsible for the amazing soundtrack. Kim Basinger was interviewed once, and she said very freely that the time with Prince was very meaningful for her, as all moments were back then.
She was a free spirit who did whatever was on her mind, and judging by Prince's public image, he was very similar to her in that respect. Apparently, dating Prince was right up her alley. The two even worked together on music projects!
