Patrick Dempsey – Jillian Fink (Hairdresser)
Way before Patrick Dempsey was the leading man he is today and “Dr. McDreamy” on Grey’s Anatomy, he fell in love with his hairstylist, Jillian Frank. Sources say that during his wedding he cried tears of happiness when she walked down the aisle. The two have hit some rocky times, but have been able to hold their family together.
“I really love it now,” Dempsey said of acting, “but I also have a life outside it with Jill and Tallula.”
Tobey Maguire – Jennifer Meyer (Jewelry Designer)
Tobey Maguire is famous for his roles in Spider-Man, The Great Gatsby, and Seabiscuit. He actually met his wife, jewelry designer Jennifer Meyer, on the set of that movie in 2003 (Meyer’s father is the head of Universal Studios) and the two were married three years later. They have two children together.
“Tobey is the best father in the entire world,” Meyer said. But after nine years of marriage, the two grew too far apart and officially called it quits.
