July 22, 2011

Celebrities married to non-celebrities far outweigh those celeb power couples in the entertainment world. Who are these little known celebrity spouses? Check out my list below.

Matt Damon Luciana Barroso

Who is that beauty that the Good Will Hunting star married? Matt Damon’s wife is Luciana Barroso, a bartender whom he met while he was in Miami filming Stuck on You. They started dating and two years later they were wed in December of 2005. Together they had three children, Isabella, who is 5, Gia, who is almost 3 and Stella, who was born in October 2010. Barroso’s daughter Alexia is from her previous marriage, and Damon is quite the doting stepfather.

Jeff Bridges Susan Geston

Jeff Bridges’ wife is Susan Geston, whom he married in 1977. Wow! That is an eternity by Hollywood standards, eh? This longtime couple have three children, Isabelle (b. 1981), Jessica (b.1983) and Hayley (b.1985). Following his Best Actor Oscar win last year for his role as Bad Blake in Crazy Heart, reporters asked what the secret was to his success. He said, “Oh, well, first thing that pops into my mind is my wife, my support, you know. She holds that kite string. Lets me go way out there, and then it’s so sweet being reeled back in.” Ahh, so sweet!

Eric Bana Rebecca Gleeson
