Male celebrities are notorious for dating female models during their rise to fame. But the women have had their fair share of dating models. Here are ten celebrities who have ventured to the catwalk for a man.
Jennifer Aniston is most famous for her portrayal of “Rachel” in the 1990s hit NBC sitcom Friends. She was also the first woman to actually get playboy actor Brad Pitt to settle down. The two were married from 2000-2005, when they divorced after he was rumored to be involved with Angelina Jolie. Pitt enjoyed a brief modeling stint as spokesperson for Edwin Jeans and Roots coffee in Japan.
Her next model boyfriend was a short-lived relationship with Paul Sculfor back in 2007. Sculfor’s famous gigs have been for Christian Dior and Levi’s jeans.
Victoria Beckham, better known as Posh Spice of the on-again-off-again British pop powerhouse Spice Girls, started out as a model herself. She landed British football (soccer) superstar David Beckham as a hubby, and the two had three kids together. When he was released from his English team, he did a stint as an underwear model for Armani. While he is back to kicking black and white balls on a field, don’t discount him from possibly doing another modeling gig in the future.
Halle Berry, considered one of the sexiest actresses in Hollywood, most notably starred in Introducing Dorothy Dandridge, X-Men, Monster’s Ball, Catwoman, and Things We Lost in the Fire. She also dated model Gabriel Aubry from 2005 until April 2010. Aubry has modeled for DKNY, Calvin Klein, and Louis Vuitton, to name a few. The couple had a daughter in March of 2006.
Kate Bosworth is the bombshell actress who starred in movies such as The Horse Whisperer, Remember the Titans, Beyond the Sea, and 21. She recently ended a long term relationship with her boyfriend James Rousseau. Rousseau is the model who became the face of Hugo Boss and had a role in the movie The Hole.
Miley Cyrus caused a stir back in 2008 when it was rumored that she was dating an underwear model. Cyrus was only 15 at the time. Justin Gaston was 20. Supposedly the family was okay with it, because Gaston was considered a close friend of the family. He was basically her rebound relationship after her break-up with teen heartthrob Nick Jonas. The couple broke up in 2009. Miley just released her latest CD, Can’t Be Tamed.
Before landing her hubby Ryan Reynolds, actress Scarlett Johanssen (Vicky Christina Barcelona) was in a long-term relationship with model/actor Josh Hartnett. Some of Hartnett’s biggest movies include Pearl Harbor and Black Hawk Down. His modeling career with Tommy Hilfiger came about during his work with the movie The Faculty. The two met while filming The Black Dahlia. Johansson keeps busy with her own acting career, particularly as Woody Allen’s current muse, and her singing career. Hartnett is working on several movies right now.
The “Material Girl” attempted to keep herself young at heart while dating a hot Brazilian underwear model less than half her age. In 2010, Madonna was 51 and Jesus Luz was only 23. According to a Huffington Post article, Madonna is even 14 years older than Jesus’s mother. The two of them actually made it for a full year before the youngster dumped her, realizing they had nothing in common. Perhaps she was trying to compete with her ex-husbands, Sean Penn and Guy Ritchie, who have also been seen recently toting young models?
Demi Moore’s trademark is the irony that the longer her hair is in a role, the worse the movie is. (Striptease, anyone, vs. A Few Good Men and G.I. Jane?) After her divorce from Bruce Willis, Demi became the ultimate Cougar when she started a relationship with model-turned-actor Ashton Kutcher. Kutcher first came to NY to be a model, before eventually landing is big gig on That 70’s Show. She is currently 47 and he is 32. The two were married in 2005 and are still together.
Daughter of rock star Ozzy Osbourne and America’s Got Talent host, Sharon Osbourne, Kelly Osbourne grew to her own stardom on her family’s dysfunctional reality show on MTV. She has also attempted to launch her own musical career. Recently, she was engaged to model Luke Worrall. The couple broke up in mid-July 2010 after he allegedly cheated on her.
Harry Potter’s Hermione Granger, in real life known as Emma Watson, has her own model love these days. She recently admitted that she is in a relationship with model and guitarist, George Craig. The two recently worked together on the spring/summer 2010 Burberry campaign. Watson recently finished filming the final scenes of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, the final installment in the movie series.
