18. Corey and Susie Feldman

Susie Feldman apparently once said of ex-husband Corey, “I knew I would marry [him] ever since I saw Stand By Me.” And that’s what ultimately happened in 2002. Unfortunately, though – and perhaps because the actor was now far from the teen heartthrob he was in that movie – the one-time Playboy pinup filed for divorce in 2009.

17. Christopher Guest and Jamie Lee Curtis

Jamie Lee Curtis has recalled that she spied a snap of This Is Spinal Tap star Christopher Guest in Rolling Stone and, rather charmingly, instantly decided that she was going to marry him. A matter of months later, then, and after a little chasing on the actress’ part, she did – and the pair have been wed for over 30 years now.

16. Reese Witherspoon and Jim Toth

Reese Witherspoon could, it’s fair to say, have taken her pick of any number of famous young men to be her future husband. The man she chose, though, was a little less starry – although it’s worth noting that, with Jim Toth being co-head of motion picture talent at her own agency, she picked someone almost guaranteed to already admire her. Indeed, in 2014, three years after the pair had wed, Witherspoon described Toth as her “number one fan.” Sweet.
