Hollywood Odd Couples
Hollywood Odd Couples
What makes an odd couple, well, odd? It could be a vast age difference, an opposites-attract scenario or just an “ewww” factor that puts them on the list. Heard about the recent Susan Sarandon and Judah Friedlander rumors? Enough said. Here are some of the best odd couples, past and present.

Sean Penn and Scarlett Johansson
Let’s set aside the 24-year age difference and note that Scarlett just ended her marriage to this Hollywood hunk. Sean just ended his marriage to his partner of more than 20 years.
Meg Ryan and John Mellencamp
John Mellencamp recently separated from his model wife of 18 years, and shortly thereafter he was seen with Meg Ryan. The twosome is within the same decade in terms of age difference, but can you see this smoking, drinking rocker with down-to-earth Meg long term?
Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon
This odd couple married in 2008 and is now expecting twins. She’s a certified diva, 10 years his senior, and he’s a former MTV and Nickelodeon star. He’s got a new job, aside from being Mariah’s baby daddy.
Celine Dion and Rene Angelil
So, if you don’t know the story, Rene first met and worked with Celine when she was 12 and he was 38. (Ewww!) They began a relationship when she was 19 and have been together ever since. She recently had twins and started a long engagement in this showy city.
Calista Flockhart and Harrison Ford
With a 22-year age difference between them, the former star of this popular TV show and Indiana Jones himself got married in 2010. They have one child together.
Woody Allen and Soon-Yi Previn
In what world is it OK to marry the adopted daughter of your ex-wife? Apparently, that would be in Woody Allen’s world. They got married in 1997, despite their 34-year age difference.
Ric Ocasek and Paulina Porizkova
The lead singer of this band married the supermodel in 1989. An odd couple for sure, no one thought it would last, but it has been 22 years and they have two children together.
Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown
The world scratched its collective head when these two got together. The pop diva and the bad boy got married in 1992 and divorced in 2007, after their well-documented battles with drugs. Whitney re-issued her debut album in 2010.
Whoopi Goldberg and Ted Danson
They met on the set of this movie in 1992, and their affair led to his divorce. If they didn’t get enough press as an odd couple, Ted Danson showed poor taste at a roast for Goldberg.
Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore
They began dating when Ashton was at the height of fame, due in part to this show. Remember his stint on this groovy show. She is 15 years his senior, and they are still going strong after marrying in 2005. Who is her ex?
Julia Roberts and Lyle Lovett
More than a few eyebrows went up when the pretty woman was married to this singer from 1993 to 1995. He reportedly penned this famous tune about Julia.
Liza Minnelli and David Gest
This odd couple didn’t just look a little odd. Their spectacle of a wedding cost more than $3.5 million in 2002. All didn’t end well.
Flavor Flav and Brigitte Nielsen
They met on the set of this reality show, whose title was pretty appropriate. The two began an affair on camera, which led to another reality show together before their eventual breakup.
Michael Jackson and Lisa Marie Presley
It was the uncomfortable kiss in front of millions that people still talk about. No one could believe these two as a couple, but even years after their divorce Lisa Marie was heartbroken over his death.
