Amy Adams and Darren Le Gallo, then:

These two met in acting class! Aww, isn’t that sweet? And it was a long time ago, all the way back in 2001.

Amy Adams and Darren Le Gallo, now:

Today, the couple is still happy and have a child together. And I’m sure Darren is totally cool with his wife’s career taking off and his not.

Maggie Gyllenhaal and Peter Sarsgaard, then:

The acting powerhouse couple has been together since 2002, and were married in 2009. Do you think having a confusing-to-spell double-A in their names is what brought them together?

Maggie Gyllenhaal and Peter Sarsgaard, now:

Today, Maggie Gyllenhaal and Peter Sarsgaard live together in Park Slope, Brooklyn, in a house they once told Architectural Digest had “14 million fireplaces.”

Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russel, then:

Having known each other since Kurt Russell was 16 and Goldie Hawn was 21, this is probably the longest-lasting couple on this list.

Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russel, now:

These two got together in 1983 and have been together ever since. It’s the kind of marriage we can all dream of, even if they’ve never been married.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Brad Hall, then:

Imagine not only landing a dream job on Saturday night Live, but also getting to do it with your husband? That’s what happened to Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who met husband Brad Hall while at Northwestern before they were both cast on the NBC sketch show.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Brad Hall, now:

Today the couple has two kids together, with Brad seemingly enjoying his time as the Second Husband (because JLD was the Veep on Veep, you see).

Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne, then:

The first family of not only rock and roll but also reality TV, Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne met in 1982.

Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne, now:

Today, Sharon is still managing Ozzy’s calendar, cancelling his 2022 tour dates (before all tour dates in general were canceled) to help Ozzy look after his health.

Angela Bassett and Courtney B. Vance, then:

These two actors had known each other since their days at the Yale School of Drama in the ’80s, but didn’t go on a date together until 1994.

Angela Bassett and Courtney B. Vance, now:

Perennial staples of the red carpet, you can still catch Angela and Courtney looking shockingly good at just about any premiere in Los Angeles.

Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick, then:

You know how you can play Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon and find literally any actor is only six roles away from sharing the screen with the man? That’s because the guy’s been working since the ’80s, and most of that time he’s been married to Kyra Sedgwick.

Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick, now:

And man, they still love each other today. Question: does Sedgwick count in a Six Degrees game? I mean, we know she spends at least some time with Kevin Bacon…

Elton John and David Furnish, then:

Music superstar Elton John and his husband David Furnish have been together since 1993. In 2005, right after same-sex partnerships were made legal in the United Kingdom, John and Furnish were among the first to make it official.

Elton John and David Furnish, now:

Now the couple has two sons who, we have to assume, get into Elton’s bins of star-shaped sunglasses all the time.

Steve and Nancy Carrell, then:

Having met in an improv class (where all great couples are born), Steve Carell and Nancy Walls tied the knot in 1995.

Steve Carrell and Nancy Carrell, now:

Hey look, they still like each other! The couple is still together, have two kids, and co-created a TV show together in Angie Tribeca (talk about #RelationshipGoals [really just #RegualrGoals]).

Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling, then:

Oh cool, the most attractive people in the history of the world got together. Great. Together since 2011, it would have been nice if they could’ve spread the attractiveness around a little bit.

Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling, now:

Yup, you guessed it, they’re both still wildly attractive and in love and I’m not jealous of either of them or very very sad at all.

Emily Blunt and John Krasinski, then:

Listen, I know, intellectually, that the actors who play Jim and Pam are not together in real life. And yet, I can’t help but be sad that John Krasinski is married to Emily Blunt and not Jenna Fisher.

Emily Blunt and John Krasinski, now:

I guess it’s fine that they starred together in A Quiet Place, even though it’s not as easy to ship a silent, terrified couple as it was to ship a… silent, terrified couple?! Jim and Pam couldn’t say anything to each other for the first few seasons because they were afraid to upset each other! Oh my god, A Quiet Place is a gritty reboot of The Office!

Rupaul and Georges LeBar, then:

Don’t Rupaul and his husband Georges LeBar seem just so happy together? It could be because when they met in 1994, they were both gettin’ down at a dance club.

Rupaul and Georges LeBar, now:

One secret to the couple’s long-lasting success together? They keep the marriage open. Rupaul told Goalcast “If [LeBar] needs to do something else somewhere else, I’m fine with that.”

Judd Apatow and Leslie Mann, then:

Remember that movie The Cable Guy, where Jim Carrey played a maniac and it was kind of scary and not as funny as Ace Ventura and actually kind of traumatized me a little bit? It was on the set of that movie that Judd Apatow met his wife Leslie Mann.

Judd Apatow and Leslie Mann, now:

They’re still together today, and Leslie ends up in almost all of Judd’s projects, from The 40-Year-Old Virgin to This Is 40.

Pink and Carey Hart, then:

Pink, who’s always had a little edge to her reputation, met objectively badass motocross racer Carey Hart at the X Games in 2001, and by 2006 they were married.

Pink and Carey Hart, now:

After some ups and downs, Pink and Carey are still together and have two kids together. Truly, their relationship is radical.

Anna Kournikova and Enrique Iglesias, then:

And I thought Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling were obnoxiously attractive together. Yeah, Anna Kournikova and Enrique Iglesias are together and married and happy and beautiful. And I’m sure Enrique sings “I can be your hero baby” to her all the time, like he did in the song that one time.

Anna Kournikova and Enrique Iglesias, now:

After 18 years together, Enrique Iglesias and Anna Kournikova are somehow just as attractive as they ever were. And I’m not jealous per se but I just want to know when someone will be my hero, baby?

David and Victoria Beckham, then:
