Have you ever found yourself staring at a seemingly mismatched couple – one who is more attractive than the other, you know that overweight sweaty man with nostril hairs who has somehow landed on his feet with a stunning model wife. Wonder what the girls see in their guys? No, it’s not always money; some of these guys must have great personalities for their “Beauty And The Beast” relationships to work.
Padma Laklshmi and Salman Rushdie
An unlikely couple when it comes to looks, Indian born former model Pada says “It’s not a technical skill.”
She explains further “If my mind is engaged, my body will follow.” Well, Salman must surely have the wit and charm then!
Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden
We are not sure why former fashion model and now stunning actress Diaz fell for snap back tattoo filled musician singer songwriter Madden. This unlikely couple caught our attention and you may find yourself asking why and how did these two get together.
Emmy Rossum and Adam Duritz
We’re not sure if Emmy realises how gorgeous she is, but the stunner gallivants with the dreadlocked Counting Crows frontman, Adam who is an incredible 22 years her senior.
Dita Von Teese and Marilyn Manson
Beautiful burlesque dancer Von Teese was married to Marilyn for a short time. Maybe he scared her off in the end, surely waking up to him every morning would send the chills down anyone’s spine.
Julia Roberts and Lyle Lovett
There’s no doubt here that opposites in looks can attract, as the Pretty Woman star certainly didn’t go for a tall dark and handsome man like Richard Gere.
Donald Trump and Melania Knauss
There’s no real guessing as to what attracted Mel to Trump – maybe money can buy you love? The jury is out on this one!
JayZ and Beyonce
The power of music brought these two lovebirds together. Jay and Bey’s relationship evolved from professional to romantic, but there’s no surprise JayZ fell for such a stunning beauty.
Salma Hayek and Francois Henri Pinault
Brunette beauty Salma gets attention wherever she goes, and she is used to being lavished by her husband who’s not as lucky as her in the looks department, so it’s clear they have something else going on, that works for them.
Many studies show that partners with one far more attractive than the other tend to become friends at first before developing a romantic relationship and that those who meet quickly say at a bar or on a night out tend to form their relationships based primarily on physical attraction. There you have it, there’s real hope for less attractive people and long term relationships can work out. The ever popular Ugly Dating web site was set up to service the need for less attractive (physically) members of society to get to become friends first with potential hotties with the benefit of forming successful long term relationships!
