The celebrity world is filled with glitz and glamour, scandals and rumors, but weird and absolutely shocking weddings also? Well, yes. It is now presumed and somewhat believed to a certain degree that opposites really do attract. At least in the impish little book of celebrity gossip and entertainment the hookups suggest that outrageous opposites in all forms, weight, age, beauty etc all count. Here we have compiled a list of some of the most mismatched and shocking weddings from the celebrity planet.
1. Woody Allen and Soon Yi Previn
There is absolutely nothing about this relationship that suggests that it would be over sooner than "I am dating your daughter". This is precisely the point the intensely neurotic director, Woody Allen, gave to Mia Farrow when she recovered a couple of nude pictures of her adopted daughter from Allen’s apartment. However, statistically marriages such as this one normally do not work out; nevertheless Allen and Soon- Yi Previn have found marital bliss and have two children.
2. Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore
There is precisely only a 15 year age difference between Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore, so we should probably not see much of a problem here. Moreover, Demi Moore’s children actually grew up having crushes on Ashton Kutcher. And now he’s their step-dad! Now that is just so totally gross! There is also a spinning rumor that Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher are to star in The Graduate on stage together. It just couldn’t be more mismatched than this.
3. Christina Aguilera and Jordan Bratman
The ever so sexy and appealing Christina Aguilera with not too many musical hits under her cap ends up marrying a music producer. I think it is better left for us to not comment on the reasons behind her marrying a music producer. However, let’s just be real for a moment, she’s one of the hottest pop stars and well Jordan Bratman… there is not much of an appeal there! Perhaps this is just the reason why different "leagues" came into invention: for Christina Aguilera to be so totally out of his!
4. Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta Jones
The age difference between Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones is probably much longer than most of us have been alive. One of the sexiest women on the planet chose to marry a man quarter of a century (25 years) older than her is simply creepy. She may have proven to have a preference for older men, but marrying a man so old when she could have probably scored simply any man she wanted to, is pure waste. They may have been married happily for over a decade now, but it was a celeb wedding that was just so completely shocking and mismatched.
5. Marilyn Monroe and Arthur Miller
She was a beautiful blonde bombshell and he was a Pulitzer Prize winning playwright. Tabloids of that time report that Monroe was intrigued by Miller’s intelligence, whereas Miller loved Monroe’s sense of play. Or in short the fact that he was sharing her bed! However, this marriage was a complete mismatch. It was shocking that an intelligent man like Miller would marry a woman like Monroe, and it was equally shocking for one of the hottest women of that time to have married an old man, with no sense of fashion! What was she seriously thinking? She was going to be seen around and have paparazzi following her with a man who actually wore huge glasses and was just downright plain looking!
6. Anna Nicole Smith and J Howard Marshall
Anna Nicole Smith, 26 was an actress, TV personality and perhaps the most famous playboy playmate of all Time. J. Howard Marshall was an 89 year old wheelchair bound billionaire. Rumors of their impending marriage stirred the tabloid community like no other marriage ever had. His was one trophy wife to end all trophy wives. In this case, it comes as no shocking surprise that Anna Nicole Smith had a love-at-first-sight with Marshall’s bank account! The couple got married in 1994 and a year later Marshall died. The cause of death was natural, but some conspiracy theorists like to believe that it might have been an over dose of Viagra. However, Anna Nicole Smith was flabbergasted when she found out that she was not included in his will. The subsequent fight over Marshall’s estate only resulted in one judge awarding Smith with $475 million; on the other the hand, another judge revoked the decision.
7. Mandy Moore and Ryan Adams
A former teen pop star, Mandy Moore, 25, known to be totally wild in the early days of her not-so cool career, somehow managed to fall in love with Ryan Adams, 34, who is a Grammy-winning alt-rocker. Ryan Adams also writes books of poetry in his spare time, while Many Moore, prefers to hunt for music producers or absolutely any movie producer who would cast her in his film. Being "allergic"to the glitz of media and the paparazzi, Adams broke up with Moore, claiming that he could not stay in a relationship of this sort for very long. But we guess that he couldn’t take the break for too long and instead of patching up together in an informal union, they actually landed up tying the sacred knot in a secret wedding in March 2009. As shocking as their wedding news and the couple that it is, they probably have found some common ground to their union.
8. Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon
Most of the gossips columns and magazine spelled simple doom for the ever-so shocking wedding of Mariah Carey, 39, and the ’Drumline’ star Nick Cannon, 29. They had merely dated for about six weeks and ended up in a matrimonial ceremony. Even though there is nearly a ten years of age difference between the two, yet the honeymoon period for these two does not seem to be quite so over yet. She’s a superstar, and he was someone not many people had enough inkling about to be married to one of the biggest divas of all time. As scandalous and media hyped this couples partnership and wedding has been, they still claim to be very much in love and actually planning on to starting a family very soon.
9. Sacha Baron Cohen and Isla Fisher
Isla Fisher so completely gorgeous, a beautiful petite figure added with flowing locks of red hair is known to be the only lady in the celebrity loops to be able to pull of both the sexy and the cute profiles. However, when we see her husband Sacha Baron Cohen, we just cannot get ’Borat’ out of our minds. That outrageously famous, gay Austrian, celebrity contemptuous doppelganger Bruno!
10. Christina Hendricks and Geoffrey Arend
They say that love is blind, but love can be this dorky! The stunning actress of ’Mad Men’ got married to Geoffrey Arend an actor who has appeared in such mind blowing films like ’An American Carol’ and ’National Lampoon’s Pledge This’. If you have actually seen these flicks you’d be kindly requested to hit your hand on your forehead at least twice until you come around to forgetting the existence of the films. Arend just has to be pure lucky to have married the ever so gorgeous Christina Hendricks. This matrimonial match is simply inexplicable. In their case, either Christina Hendricks sees something in him that we do not, or he is probably the only man who has managed to look her in the eye and have a complete conversation. Either way, this wedding was utterly shocking!
