Celebrities Who've Never Been Married - The Delite

Celebrities Who’ve Never Been Married

Some celebrities have practically made a second career out of marrying and divorcing different spouses. But you might be surprised to know that there are quite a few famous folks in Hollywood who have never walked down the aisle — and may never plan to!

Whether by choice or by chance, plenty of famous celebs have never been married.

Leonardo DiCaprio (48 Years Old)

When it comes to marriage, Leonardo DiCaprio takes a laissez-faire approach. The actor, who has dated quite a few well-known models including Gisele Bündchen and Bar Refaeli, told Parade: “That time will come when that time comes. The truth is, you can’t predict marriage. You can’t plan it. It’s just going to happen when it happens.”

Wise words, Leo.

Oprah Winfrey (68 Years Old)

According to media mogul Oprah Winfrey, the reason her 30-plus year-long relationship with partner Stedman Graham has been so successful is because the two never married.

“His interpretation of what it means to be a husband and what it would mean for me to be a wife would have been pretty traditional, and I would not have been able to fit into that,” she explained to Vogue in 2017.

Charlize Theron (47 Years Old)

“Marriage to me is not that important,” Charlize Theron told Howard Stern in 2017. “I want to have a partner and have a monogamous long-term relationship, I really do. But I don’t need to have a wedding. My heart and my life and how I am with that guy is going to be exactly the same. I don’t need the party. I don’t need the white dress.”

The actress was in a 9-year relationship with actor Stuart Townsend before splitting up in 2010. Since then, she has adopted two children on her own: Jackson, 6, and August, 2.

Matthew Perry (53 Years Old)

Friends actor Matthew Perry has romanced actresses like Heather Graham, Julia Roberts and Lauren Graham but has never tied the knot.

In 2009, Perry told the UK’s Daily Mail, “Life has changed so much over the last few decades. There used to be a feeling that once you were 30, you had to be married with children and a house… and here I am, nearly 40, with none of that. But I’m hoping that will change. I’m a pretty happy guy, who is looking for someone who enjoys having a good time. I’m hoping it will all work out for me in the end.”

Shakira (45 Years Old)

Latina pop singer Shakira and Spanish soccer player Gerard Piqué have eight years under their belts, but are in no rush to get married. While she hasn’t completely ruled out marriage in the future, she stated in an interview in 2014 that they don’t feel a need to get hitched.

“We already have what’s essential, you know?” The pop star said. “We have a union, a love for each other, and a baby. I think that those aspects of our relationship are already established, and marriage is not going to change them. But if I’m ever going to get married, he’s the one.”

The couple now have two children together: Milan, 5, and Sasha, 3.

Jon Hamm (51 Years Old)

Mad Men star Jon Hamm doesn’t believe he’s cut out for married life.

“I don’t have the marriage chip,” he said in a 2010 interview, noting that his parents’ marriage didn’t last and that had an impact on him. The actor split from director and writer Jennifer Westfeldt, with whom he had an 18-year relationship, in 2015.

Owen Wilson (54 Years Old)

Although Owen Wilson has kept his lips zipped on his private life, some have described the Wedding Crashers star as an “eternal bachelor.” He has two children with different mothers but has never gotten married. He has also been in relationships with Kate Hudson and Sheryl Crow.

Tyra Banks (49 Years Old)

When she turned 40, the only thing Tyra Banks claimed that she was unhappy about was not having children yet. In 2016, Banks gave birth to a son name York, with her then-boyfriend photographer Erik Asla. However, the supermodel and reality TV host has never married.

John Cusack (56 Years Old)

When asked by Elle magazine in 2009 to explain in a few words why he’s never been married, John Cusack replied simply, “Society doesn’t tell me what to do.”

The Say Anything actor has been linked to a variety of high-profile actresses but hasn’t ever popped the question.

Lucy Liu (54 Years Old)

While Lucy Liu generally keeps her private life to herself, the Elementary actor has never married. She is a mom, however: She welcomed her son Rockwell into the world in 2015 via a gestational carrier.

Matt Dillon (58 Years Old)

Although he’s never married, Matt Dillon’s ideas on marriage seem to have evolved as he’s gotten older. Notably, he told Parade in 2006 that “I’m open to life now, even to marriage.”

He’s reportedly been in a long-term relationship with Italian choreographer Roberta Mastromichele and famously dated his There’s Something About Mary co-star Cameron Diaz in the ’90s.

Winona Ryder (51 Years Old)

“I’d rather never have been married than been divorced a few times,” Winona Ryder told The Edit in 2016. “Not that there’s anything wrong with divorce, but I don’t think I could do it if that was a possibility. When your parents are madly in love for 45 years, your standards are really high. But I’ve been happily with someone for quite a while now.”

The Stranger Things actress has reportedly been in a relationship with eco-conscious fashion designer Scott Mackinlay Hahn since 2011, and she was engaged to Johnny Depp in the early ’90s.

Ricky Gervais (61 Years Old)

Although Ricky Gervais has been with his partner — college sweetheart and author Jane Fallon — for over 35 years, don’t expect to ever see wedding photos of him online. That’s because he has said that he doesn’t see “any point” in getting married.

“We don’t want any more toasters,” he joked. Fallon has also said that marriage is not something either of them has ever needed.

Lauren Graham (55 Years Old)

If it’s not broken, why fix it? That seems to be the Lauren Graham’s attitude with regard to her relationship with former Parenthood co-star Peter Krause. When asked in 2014 if marriage is in the couple’s future, she replied: “I don’t know! We are really happy. I feel like close to five years in Hollywood, it’s, like, aren’t we married already really? It’s good the way it is.”

Al Pacino (82 Years Old)

Although The Godfather star Al Pacino has never been married, he won’t rule out the possibility, even though he is nearly 80 years old and has fathered three children. When asked in 2017 if he’d marry his longtime girlfriend Lucila Sol, Pacino replied, “I never say never. It’s possible.”

Marisa Tomei (58 Years Old)

When it comes to her thoughts on marriage, Academy Award-winning actor Marisa Tomei doesn’t mince words. “I’m not that big a fan of marriage as an institution and I don’t know why women need to have children to be seen as complete human being,” she once stated. The star has been linked to actors like Robert Downey, Jr. and Josh Radnor in the past.

Sheryl Crow (60 Years Old)

Sheryl Crow isn’t jaded about love or relationships that didn’t work out, and she has been linked in the past to musician Eric Clapton, cyclist Lance Armstrong and actor Owen Wilson. “Hey, I would love to get married — I’m still old-fashioned,” she told Good Housekeeping in 2014. “But I don’t think marriage is the be-all and end-all. It’s better to have three broken engagements than three divorces.”

Seth MacFarlane (49 Years Old)

Although he dated Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke in the past, Seth MacFarlane, the star and creator of Family Guy remains single.

“I’m wide open to getting married, but actors are not easy people to date,” he told Parade. “You end up sharing that person with this other mistress that is their career. I very much like the traditional courtship method of making a date. That’s what they do in normal places, but Hollywood’s not normal.”

Allison Janney (63 Years Old)

She doesn’t believe in the institution of marriage, and Academy Award-winner Allison Janney is enjoying her life as a single lady.

“I want to be a player!” she told Elle magazine in 2014. “I’m still single! I want to feel sexy and pretty and young as long as I can.”

Mindy Kaling (43 Years Old)

“When I was younger, I wanted so badly to be married and have kids in a rush,” said The Mindy Project star Mindy Kaling in 2015. “I loved my parents’ relationship.” However, the actress added that she doesn’t need to be married.

“I don’t need anyone to take care of all my needs and desires,” she told Good Housekeeping. “I can take care of them myself now.” The actress gave birth to her first child as a single mom in 2017.

Kristin Davis (57 Years Old)

Although Charlotte York on Sex and the City was determined to have the perfect marriage, in real life, actress Kristin Davis couldn’t be farther from the character she played. She has said that she was too busy in her twenties and thirties working as an actress to focus on getting married. Nowadays, Davis is busy being a mom and has two adopted children.

Diane Keaton (76 Years Old)

Despite many high-profile romances with stars like Warren Beatty, marriage was never in the cards for Diane Keaton. The actress had wanted to get married to Godfather co-star and one-time boyfriend Al Pacino, but it didn’t work out. Years later, she revealed: “He was even less inclined to be realistic than me. … And I was on the cusp of being very old. So that poor guy. I don’t think he was really that interested. And I don’t think a long-term happy marriage would be easy for him.”

The Academy Award-winning star has raised two children on her own.

Edie Falco (59 Years Old)

Having divorced parents may have influenced Nurse Jackie and The Sopranos actress Edie Falco never to marry. She says that her kids — whom she adopted as a single mom — are better off for it. “My kids have never seen me scream at anybody,” she told The Daily Beast in a 2010 interview. “They’ve never seen an argument. There’s never been even a cold silence. And those are things that I grew up with because my parents did end up divorcing.”

Eva Mendes (48 Years Old)

Eva Mendes has been in a long-term relationship with Ryan Gosling. They’ve been together since 2011, in fact and have two daughters. However, the pair have never officially tied the knot. In an interview with Chelsea Handler from the Digital Spy, she said, “I’m not, like, anti-marriage or the institution for other people. I love the idea of a union, that’s very beautiful. I just don’t think it should be a piece of paper because society tells me to.”

Mary Louise Parker (58 Years Old)

Mary Louise Parker’s longest relationship was with Billy Cruddup from 1996 to 2003. The pair even had a child together, William Atticus Parker. However, they never actually married. In a 2015 interview with the New York Times, she actually said, “Maybe a psychiatrist would say I’m not married now because I have some sort of father thing. But you know what? That would be the least of my problems.”

Sarah Silverman (52 Years Old)

The comedian and actress Sarah Silverman has recently entered her fifties, although she hasn’t tied the knot with anyone yet. Although, that’s not to say that she hasn’t dated. According to a tweet she sent out in 2014 she finds the idea of the government being involved in her love life to be weird and gross.

Enrique Iglesias (47 Years Old)

Spanish musician, Enrique Iglesias isn’t married, but he’s not single. He’s been in a long-term relationship with Anna Kournikova, a Russian tennis player, for the last 17 years. They even have three kids together. In an interview with ITV, Iglesias said that he felt there was no real difference whether or not they were actually married.

Kylie Minogue (54 Years Old)

Kylie Minogue is one of the most famous and highest-selling Australian musical artists of all time. Although, while she’s been in multiple relationships, she’s never really been that interested in marriage. According to her, she wasn’t raised with the idea of the “the big marriage”, and as such it was never a goal for her.

Maya Rudolph (50 Years Old)

Maya Rudolph’s been in a long-term relationship with Paul Thomas Anderson, since 2001 in fact. And together they’ve had four children. However, they’re not married.

Chelsea Handler (47 Years Old)

Chelsea Handler’s said while on Today that she’s not sure if she’s the “marrying kind” at all. Although she says that she normally winds up doing something the next weekend if she says she’ll never do it. She’s never been married, but she doesn’t have anything against the idea, so who knows, it could happen in the future.

Ryan Gosling (42 years Old)

We’ve already mentioned Ryan Gosling’s partner, Eva Mendes. They met on the set of the drama The Place Beyond the Pines. Over the last decade they’ve had two daughters, Esmeralda and Amada, but have made sure to keep their family life more private. Of course, while they’re still together for the long haul, they’re not yet married.

Ralph Nader (88 Years Old)

Ralph Nader is one of the oldest bachelors alive. He’s a Green Party politician and simply has never been married. His reasoning is pretty understandable too. He just felt as though he had to choose between having a family and a career.

Bill Maher (66 Years Old)

The talk show host Bill Maher has never been married before, but he has been in relationships before. He’s dated Playboy Cyber Girl Coco Johnsen, author Karrine Steffans, and neuroscientist Cara Santa Maria. It’s a pretty wide variety of occupations.

Richard Chamberlain (88 Years Old)

Richard Chamberlain is another 88 year old man that’s never been married. But his reason for never getting married is different than Ralph Nader’s. He’s just gay. And when he was most active in Hollywood, gay marriage wasn’t legal yet. He’s been in multiple romantic relationships with men, and him and his partner at the time had a civil union ceremony, but he’s never been legally married.

Jacqueline Bisset (73 Years Old)

Jacqueline Bisset’s a well-known bachelorette. She’s had multiple long-term relationships, possibly the most of the people on this list, but never tied the knot. And that just comes down to her personal preference. She’s 73 years old, but still completely independent.

Joan Jett (64 Years Old)

Joan Jett’s one the most famous rockers in the music industry. And certainly one of the most famous women rockers. And befitting her independent nature, she’s never married either. There were rumors going around for a while that she was either gay or bisexual, but she never wanted to declare that as a fact. Even after it was revealed she was a lesbian, she still refused to declare it as a fact.

Jeremy Piven (57 Years Old)

Jeremy Piven’s dated several women over the years, but he’s never been married. According to Piven, himself, it was never a part of his master plan to be single at his age, just that it was how things went. He’s also said that he still isn’t quite ready to be in a committed relationship yet.

Dina Meyer (53 Years Old)

Dina Meyer’s been in a few major films and series, such as Starship Troopers and the Saw franchise. However, her personal life is a lot less well-known. Not that it’s anyone’s business. What is clear though is that she’s never been married.

Miranda Richardson (64 Years Old)

Miranda Richardson has said that she actually thinks marriage would be good for her. But that doesn’t mean she’s willing to settle. The actress has said she’s not willing to marry anyone that isn’t Mr. Right. Until then, her pets are more than enough company.

Chris Isaak (66 Years Old)

Chris Isaak is a rock star that’s been compared to the likes of Elvis Presley. But like a few other rock stars, he’s never actually been married. His personal life as a whole though isn’t very common knowledge.
