Carrie Coon and Tracy Letts fell in love during the 2010 season of “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” at the Steppenwolf Theatre Company in Chicago. Both nabbed Tony Award nominations. Letts had already received the Pulitzer in 2008 for his play August: Osage County.
They starred in “The Post” together in 2017 and welcomed a baby boy in 2018. The couple wed in 2013. Whenever Letts finishes a writing project, he relies on Coon’s feedback. He sits nervously in another room, listening, and then asks which parts made her laugh. Just as adorable, Coon is moved; he cares so much.
Elliot Page and Emma Portner
Most of this couple’s open displays of affection will be found on Instagram, so it’s fitting that their romance took flight there. A flurry of exchanges of photos, videos, and comments went full circle in January of 2018, with an image of Elliot Page and Emma Portner’s nuptial bands matching and fingertips touching.
After two years of marriage, "Juno" star Page came out, and Portner took the opportunity to express her love and support. That said, the two recently called it quits after three years of marriage. Overall, they had a good relationship and, in Hollywood terms, lasted a long time, however, when a celeb dated a celeb, the odds are not in their favor.
Elle Fanning and Max Minghella
Relationship rumors between Elle Fanning and her Teen Spirit director Max Minghella have been percolating for a long time. Neither chose to address being caught cuddling in London in 2018. Most people think it’s their age difference that has kept it so quiet. But then, in 2019, the pair showed up at the MET Gala hand in hand.
Twelve years is not a big deal, and we've seen bigger stars with bigger age gaps. Minghella is best known for starring on "The Social Network" and "The Handmaid's Tail," and in recent years, he has been spreading his talent in directing and screenwriting.
Amber Tamblyn and David Cross
"Arrested Development" star David Cross and actress Amber Tamblyn prefer privacy. The couple married in 2012 and share one child, a daughter. "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants" actress Tamblyn announced her birth in 2017. But sometimes, it’s impossible to keep things under wraps.
Tamblyn, an open feminist, faced the dicey media situation of finding her comedian husband (“rightfully”) accused of making discriminatory comments to co-star Charlyne Yi in the form of a bad joke. Tamblyn said the incident found them confronting hard times. The media storm blew over, and their life is private again.
Chelsea Peretti and Jordan Peele
Filmmaker Jordan Peele and actress/comedian Chelsea Peretti are a low-key couple, to say the very least. They married secretly in 2016 and had been dating since 2013. Their courtship, however, was very much in the open. Peele adorably proposed to Chelsea via Tweet.
No words, just an engagement ring emoji and her Twitter name. Five months later, Chelsea posted a picture of a dog and this note: “[red heart emoji] eloped a bit ago.” The only witness was the pup. Now they have a little boy as well, born in July 2017. It is clear as day that these two were natural-born storytellers.
