The best relationship advice from celebrities in love

by

These days it seems like Hollywood relationships go bad before a tub of yoghurt, so those that make it are rare and special. Here’s what our favourite celebs have learnt about making a relationship go the distance.

Who: Will Smith

Married: Jada Pinkett Smith, 18 years

“Every man wants to marry his homie, a lot of women will impress them, but it’s the one they can always laugh with and be themselves with that will ultimately impress them the most. If you can be yourselves around each other, 100% of the time, and they can make your life like no one else can, you’ll never have a dull moment together.”

Who: Beyonce

Married: Jay Z, 7 years

“I feel like you have to get to know yourself, know what you want, spend some time by yourself, and be proud of who you are before you can share that with someone else.”

Who: Jennifer Aniston

Dating: Justin Theroux, 3 years

“Why does the romance leave relationships? I think it’s laziness. I really do. I think a good relationship is about collaboration. That’s the way to go in a relationship.”

Who: Brad Pitt

Married: Angelina Jolie, 1 year

“Do you know how you tell real love? It’s when someone else’s interest trumps your own. I like to put it that way: trumps your own. Love of somebody else—of family, of your kids—becomes the most important, most worthwhile thing in your life. It’s what you foster and protect.”

Meet Compatible Matches

Who: Ashton Kutcher

Partner: Mila Kunis, 3 years

“Guys don’t like to be told they look nice, pretty or cute or that they clean up well. So when your guy finally tries on something that you like, tell him that he looks like James Bond or Tony Montana. Feel free to be even more vague than that: ‘Wow, that suit makes you look like that hot football player!’ Trust me, say any of this and you won’t be able to get him to take the damn suit off. Before you know it, he’ll be wearing an Armani tux to league night at the bowling alley.”

Who: Channing Tatum

Married: Jenna Dewan, 6 years

“To make it work you have to pay attention. You have to want to make sure they’re okay. I know if Jenna’s had a bad dream. I know if she’s going to wake up in a good mood. I just know. Maybe [it is] because I’ve spent a lot of time with her, but pay attention guys. If you love the person, just figure out how to make them happy. Write a little note. Put it under the toilet seat. Do something crazy. Make them laugh. It’s not that hard to pay attention and care.”

Who: Meryl Streep

Married: Don Gummer, 37 years

“You have to talk about all the issues that arise, even the smallest things. You have to listen to your partner’s problems, suggestions and advice, and accept that you’re not always right. Conversation is the key to a successful marriage.”

Who: David Beckham

Married: Victoria Beckham, 16 years

“You have to have fun together. We’ve got three beautiful children together which our whole time is making them happy and making sure they’re healthy and good so most of our time is spent on them. But we have to also spend time together as a couple and that’s always important.”

Who: Joe Manganiello

Partner: Sophia Vergara, 1 year

The best love advice I’ve ever received is probably, ‘I’m not leaving the relationship; I’m just leaving the house.”

Who: Guiliana Rancic

Married: Bill Rancic 8 years

“You’ve got to be good to each other…it really comes back to respect. I was raised in a very Catholic, Italian family and it was all about respect. Don’t talk badly about [your partner] the second they walk out the door; really preserve your relationship and be good to each other. Treat it like gold.”
