"A perfect match would be Tom Brady and Josh Duhamel"
Or me and Tom Brady
The first person I thought of was Jackman, but I think Tony Goldwyn is giving Hugh a real run for his money. I have to vote Tony Goldwyn for the win
Don't forget Clive Owen. He belongs in this race
Mr. And Mrs. Howard Stern.
Hugh Jackman owns this thread. Thread closed.
Rob Lowe and his hag of a wife!
Rob owns this thread!
BTW has anyone noticed how homely Rob Lowe's sons are? What a shame. Unbelievably beautiful genes and the kids get their looks from their mother. I wonder if he's their bio dad?
Miss Jake Gyllenhaal.
[quote]Chris Martin is better looking than Goop.
I agree. I find Chris very adorable and innocent to be with an evil Gween.
Every celebrity male member of Scientology.
There wives are all the wrong sex.
R9, his wife obviously just gave birth.
Going back a ways, but on the infamous Don Loper episode of "I Love Lucy," I remember thinking that one of the celeb wives was a real dog. But now I can remember which one. Mrs. Richard Carlson? Mrs. Forrest Tucker? Any help?
Danny Pino's wife is a plain Cuban frau.
Hugh Jackman for sure and I totally agree about Misha Collins and his wife. That's actually one of the better pictures of her.
Hank Azaria and Helen Hunt. It took more than a year to figure out the mismatch.
Henry Cavill and anyone he supposedly dated
Bon Jovi's wife is not very attractive. He has aged well, I think.
Rumer Willis and Jayson Blair.
Bruce Springsteen and that red-haired hussy Patti Scialfa
Rob Lowe's sons have enough of him in them to make it clear they are his bio-children, but yes, sadly neither of them got his extreme beauty.
I'm seconding the vote for Tony Goldwyn owning this thread.
R31, those two are both fug. They deserve one another.
Ryan Seacrest and Teri Hatcher were mismatched. He has a quality that somehow prevents him from finding a perfect mate.
Alan Rickman's longtime partner Rima is so homely she makes Deb Furness look like Aishwashrya Rai.
Tom Selleck from the 80's and that Jillie Mack chick.
Hugh Jackman owns the thread, but really, what's the deal with Aaron Johnson and his wife? So, so strange.
Ben and Jen garner Affleck
"I remember thinking that one of the celeb wives was a real dog. But now I can remember which one. Mrs. Richard Carlson? Mrs. Forrest Tucker? Any help?"
Mrs. Richard Carlson was kinda mannish. Any truth to the rumor that Carlson was a closet case?
I've never seen a pic of Rob Lowe's sons before now. Wow, that's unfortunate! Their father is drop-dead beautiful and they inherited none of his looks.
Hugh Jackman looks like he is married to his overweight mother. No way in hell would a straight guy stay with a woman like that.
She is quite lucky though, doesn't have to worry about him straying with hotter chicks, can eat whatever she wants, doesn't have to go the gym and lives in the lap of multimillionaire luxury as his beard. I always thought she is a lesbian.
Agree with R3 that Goopy could do better. Chris Martin looks like a dumb donkey and his music is shitty too.
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. He could easily have had someone so much prettier. Someone who's not a junkie.
Rob Lowe's sons look like inbred hillbillies. Hard to believe someone so perfect looking could produce such homely kids.
Rob Lowe and his homely wife. IIRC, she's a make-up artist. Make-up won't help in her case.
Sting and Trudie Styler. Trudie was cute when she lured him away from his first wife, her former best friend, but she's had too much plastic surgery over the years, she now looks quite hideous.
Lots of rockers wives are hideous. There are too many to list.
Taye Diggs and Idina Menzel
R42, You really need to get out more. I know many handsome straights that date and are happily married to objectively far, far less attractive ladies. Sometimes their overweight wives remind them of their Mothers or sisters, other times there's a strong emotional and intellectual connection. It also could be the case that the man doesn't want competition from other straights, and wants to be adored and even worshiped.
I've heard straights tell me that less attractive ladies are usually much better in bed because they try far harder to please. That's what almost every man wants.
I don't want to harp on appearances, but if one partner in a relationship does not care about her or his looks it is just very disrespectful toward the partner who does. Letting yourself go is just not cool.
r52 I think your post is ridiculous. Lots of straight men end up with homely wives. If anything, they might cheat on their wives, but the idea they would never marry them or love them is strange. Especially since straight men are also looking for women that can be good mothers, and finding that it in attractive women doesn't always work out.
r48 I agree. But many of these attractive partners got together with homely and unkempt people from the get go. It isn't always about people "letting themselves go." These people were always homely.
Simon Baker and his wife are a good example. She isn't ugly, but she looks older(although I think they are the same age) and average looking.
Denzel Washington and his wife Pauletta.
Jared Padalecki and his wife. He's hot, she's unfortunate.
He's not that hot, she's not that ugly. Stick to crushing on the other Jared who is truly hot.
How could Rob Lowe have ugly sons? I can't believe it.
I just looked at the picture of Lowe's sons. They are going to be fine...the youngest one is just at that ugly stage and the older one will be good looking. What's the matter with you idiots?
R48, Of course partners should focus on health and physical fitness, as well as grooming and flattering clothes, to look sexually appealing to each other. Just that there are many factors besides one's looks of why partners match up and happily stay together.
Trudie Styler is terrible looking. I bet Sting's first wife is much more attractive but perhaps that wasn't what he was looking for?
The thing is Pauletta Washington was very attractive when she was young but she has to be around 60, doesn't she?
Here's Mr. and Mrs. Eric Bana. No beauty, is she?
But she was with him when he was an unemployable has-been in Australia, and now Hollywood considers him to be an unemployable has-been and they're still married. Maybe he's on to a good thing.
r56 - I halfway agree; Rob Lowe's older son is just sort of average looking. And the younger one will probably outgrow the ugly and turn out average as well. But neither got their dad's pretty genes.
Didn't their nanny or someone like that sue them for sexual harrassment? I think it got hushed up eventually, but I got the impression they are some major swingers.
Pierce Brosnan and Moby Dick
Over half the relationships mentioned aren't real and are straight up bearding arrangements, so there's not much that needs explaining. With the others, well, one would assume there are other factors, like love, compatibility, loyalty and shared values. Most of these guys married when they were struggling actors, and maybe the hot women were looking at men with more money, or, these guys just have different taste, and they find these women hot, even if other men don't. The fact that these women stayed with them through lean times and showed devotion and loyalty is in their favor. I mean, the actors have to know those women love them, whereas some guy chasing after a young pretty thing is probably always wondering if she's a gold digger, or a starlet using his fame and publicity to get ahead in the business.
Ow R65 she has really ballooned though
Goran Visnjic. He played Luka on ER. Here's a pic of him and his wife
She had children, you idiot.
And a husband that loves HER no matter what she looks like.
She probably had to starve herself and work out constantly to maintain her model figure.
Now that she is a mother, she puts a priority on that -- and not working out 10 hours a day, while spending every other minute counting the calories in a leaf of lettuce.
Goran vijnics wife looks like Courtney Love.
R72 is a fat Frau eating fritos as she types.
r72 Bitch, please. Kris Jenner has had 6 kids. She still has an awesome figure.
r73 [quote]Goran vijnics wife looks like Courtney Love.
Yeah, I was thinking the same thing.
I vaguely recall reading an interview with Brosnan in which he said that, after watching his first wife waste away from ovarian cancer, he found very thin women unattractive. His adopted daughter just recently died of cancer as well. Maybe being surrounded by loved who were emaciated due to illness has something to do with it.
Plus, it's not like he himself hasn't packed on the pounds recently. Granted, he still looks attractive, but nothing like he did 15 years ago.
Honestly, I think both Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver are both hideous so it was a complete shock that they had such a drop dead gorgeous son. Patrick could be a high fashion model. Stunning!
[quote]She had children, you idiot... She probably had to starve herself and work out constantly to maintain her model figure. Now that she is a mother, she puts a priority on that.
Now that she's a mother she totally lacks self-control and gorges herself with fattening food instead of eating sensible meals. Was it having children that turned her into a glutton, R72? Are you speaking from a similar experience?
r72 - Having children didn't make her obese for life. And it's silly to pretend that the only choices are fat or anorexic. But obvs both she and Pierce are cool with her looks, so good on her.
This 2008 blind item was revealed as being about them. It's from Lainey, whom some of you hate, so take it or leave it:
Just As She Is
And many find this man perfect. Dashing, debonair, scandal-free, which is why some of late have been questioning his devotion to his wife, baffled by the attraction. Still… he remains happily married and committed, he loves her just as she is, but it turns out, what she is is a girl who likes other girls. With his permission.
A classic marriage of convenience... their commitment runs deep, they care for each other dearly, but they just don’t sleep in the same bed. As for his preferences – oddly enough, he doesn’t seem to have any. The easy assumption would be that he’s meanders about like John Travolta at a massage parlour, which isn’t the case. Not even close. No affairs, no gay hook ups, nothing. Just happy that his wife is happy… true love indeed.
I bet even woman don't want her now. Although lesbians aren't as choosy.
r86 Brosnan's is not what I would call a marriage of convenience, especially considering the amount of shit they both get about her appearance. It sounds like he genuinely cares about her, but just doesn't have any sex drive.
Great photo, r77. Patty is delicious.
Shirley Jones and Marty Ingels
r88 - Well, if she's sexually attracted to women and he's celibate, then it is pretty much a marriage of convenience rather than a romantic partnership.
I think the majority of marriages become more about convenience or habit over time though.
From the past: Louis Prima and Keely Smith
Mickey Rooney and Ava Gardner
Shirley Jones and Jack Cassidy
r72 Stop having children doesn't make a woman obese. She simply isn't taking care of herself. She isn't slightly overweight-- but very overweight. That said, I think it is admirable that Pierce doesn't care.
The poor thing at R79 has cankles.
Having children doesn't make a woman obese, but some people gain more easily than others and having children can increase that tendency.
Having children can also make a woman realize that there are things more important than having a perfect body, something some Dataloungers could stand to learn.
NO one expects them to have "perfect bodies" r96; we expect them not to become whales.
[quote]there are things more important than having a perfect body, something some Dataloungers could stand to learn.
You're the one claiming people think she should have "a perfect body." Nobody has made that claim. Do you ALWAYS stray so far from the truth or just when it's hitting home, Tubby?
She's morbidly obese and placing herself at risk to not even see her own children grow into adulthood. What kind of parenting is that????
I am definitely a believer in feminism, but honestly I also truly believe that still a large number of women only want to get married because they are after financial security. Once they got a man they just don't care about their appearance and their looks anymore (same goes for men btw!) I don't get that kind of attitude, I find it selfish, unsophisticated and careless. Not only want I look good or as best as I can for my partner and my children, but I also want to see something nice when I look in the mirror. Humans have a desire for beauty. It's not just a thing of today's media saturated times, it has always been that way - and it does not make us superficial individuals when we still do care about our looks!
"Especially since straight men are also looking for women that can be good mothers, and finding that it in attractive women doesn't always work out."
I think you just won first price for most misogynistic quote of the year!
Falling in love encompasses more than just physical attraction. You fall in love with the person and have an emotional and intellectual connection as well. I'm objectively better looking than my boyfriend, but he's the best man I've ever dated. I've dated very attractive guys who turn out to be not-so-great boyfriends. I'd rather have what I have now.
Going old school - Van Johnson
Finally married Evie Wynn, divorced from Keenan Wynn, one of those ugly but glamorous types - couture clothes and always perfectly made up
"She's morbidly obese and placing herself at risk to not even see her own children grow into adulthood. What kind of parenting is that????"
Huh? I know plenty of obese people with adult children who are in their 60s and 70s. I bet tons of dataloungers smoke and use tanning beds.
"Once they got a man they just don't care about their appearance and their looks anymore (same goes for men btw!) I don't get that kind of attitude, I find it selfish, unsophisticated and careless.

Being obsessed with your appearance is usually a sign of vanity, not sophistication. You think all those bimbo trophy wives are sophisticated? They focus on their looks because they have nothing going on inside their heads and beauty is all they have to offer. And why do you care if your children think you look good? Are you a pedophile who wants your kids to lust after you?
I feel sorry for you not knowing the difference between beauty and shallowness.
r99 My comment wasn't misogynistic at all. Quite the opposite. People being shocked that a rich and famous straight man is with a less attractive women(which is subjective, these men could actually think their women are gorgeous) is odd. It assumes that they ONLY consider the looks of their partner. They are also looking for personality and who can be a good mother(if he wants children).
I find it extremely offensive that you think attractive and good mother or good personality and good looking can not be found in the same person. It's not 1920 anymore you know!
r105 Attractive people can be good parents and have good personalities. But my point is that it also can be found in physically unattractive people, so it shouldn't be shocking to believe a straight man would be with a physically unattractive woman. That is all.
And he's said before that he associates thinness with illness, so maybe he does find her attractive. I don't, but I'm not the one who married her.

Holy crap R60, no wonder she's so mean. She looks like she has a scar from having her Adam's apple removed.
Timberlake and Jessica
Ref Pierce Brosnan's wife, some men REALLY like the chubby girls. My next door neighbor is 54 and overweight, she's Italian with a big beautiful smile and she looks almost sloppy overweight but men are just drawn to her. She radiates warmth and confidence and she NEVER says anything nasty or mean about people. One night at a neighborhood BBQ I overheard a good looking 30 something tell another young guy "God she's great, I would love to fuck her".
Some of the guys I work with really go for the chubby girls if they're pretty and well dressed. Probably the same reason some guys like bears.
You queens have terrible taste in women. Keeley is fucking gorgeous, I would eat her out all day long.
R76. I had not seen that interview but I did read the one where he talked about how wonderful the 2nd Mrs Brosnan because she accepted the fact that he and his children had loved the first Mrs Brosnan so much. I am not describing it well, but it made me have a lot of respect for him. He must be a real, level headed, thoughtful person to be so mature and respectful. I was sorry too about his daughter. Dreadful thing to lose a child to the same disease.

We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
