Will Smith & Jada Pinkett Smith: 15 Years

Will and Jada met on the set of "Fresh Prince of Bel Air" in 1990, when Pinkett tried out for the role of Will's on-screen girlfriend. Deemed too short for the role, she didn't end up getting the part. The two kept in touch, however, and got together in 1995. They married in 1997. Pinkett is the stepmother of Will's son Trey, whom he had in a previous marriage. Together, the couple has two children, Jaden and Willow.

Kurt Russell & Goldie Hawn: 29 Years

Topping our list of the longest-lasting Hollywood couples are Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn. Despite having met Russell on a movie set in 1968, the Hawn did not snag him until 1983, after she divorced her second husband, Bill Hudson. Hawn is the stepmother to Russell's son Boston, and they have one son together, Wyatt. And while the two have never married, they undoubtedly have one of the strongest connections in Tinseltown.
