They say opposites attract, which might explain why some of Hollywood’s most famous celebs decided to marry everyday civilians who have never been in the spotlight. But their love is proof that celebs and regular Joes like you and I can still have a happy ending in lieu of a Hollywood horror.
Zoe Saldana and Marco Perego
The stunning “Avatar” actress found her one and only in her husband Marco Perego, who’s an Italian artist with ravishing good looks. He also sports an awesome tattoo of Zoe’s face on his arm. They got married back in 2013 and also have twins Cy, Zen, and Bowie.
