In a meeting that would only be possible for the rich and famous, music icon Billy Joel and supermodel Christie Brinkley met while on a luxurious vacation in the Caribbean in 1983. How fancy! The piano man himself used his musical talents to woo his future wife.
Joel played the piano on the island where Brinkley and her group were vacationing, and the rest is history! It seems that the couple had a love for the sea as they tied the knot on a super yacht two years later. Sadly, due to busy schedules and failed communication, the pair divorced.
David Copperfield and Claudia Schiffer
Some call it love, and some call it magic. Famous magician and illusionist David Copperfield managed to woo supermodel Claudia Schiffer by asking her for assistance during one of his shows in 1993. Would you look at that, apparently, magic tricks can, in fact, get you a girl! A year later, the two were engaged!
However, the engagement would never bloom into a marriage. The pair split up in 1999. What's particularly peculiar about the pairing is the controversy that surrounded it. Many have speculated that the relationship was a long ruse in order to boost Copperfield's fame. However, both Schiffer and Copperfield strongly deny this. Hmm...
Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell
It's not unusual for co-stars to canoodle; however, what is unusual is for the canoodling to last for over 30 years. That happens to be the case for the loved-up pair Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell. The two ignited their long-lasting relationship flame while on the set of the 1983 film "Swing Shift."
The two have welcomed a son named Wyatt as a sibling to Goldie's Kate and Oliver from her previous marriage to Bill Hudson. While all three children have the acting bug, it's pretty clear that Kate Hudson has garnered the most fame and success. When asked about the key to the pair's relationship success, Goldie credits the two for never marrying and having time to themselves.
Pamela Anderson and Tommy-Lee
One of the most infamous couples of the 90s was undoubtedly 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.
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.
