With an incredible wealth and global fame, many would think that celebrities have got it all. However, that doesn’t always seem to be the case for some of these Hollywood stars. Even though they have everything most of us wish for, these well-known figures are still single and unwedded.
Well, it appears like fortune and popularity isn’t always a guaranteed formula in finding true love, at least from what these examples tell us. In fact, some of these celebrities have been on their own for a while now. Check out this list of stars who are surprisingly still single today.
A charismatic American actress recently seen from Marvel’s Spider-man: Far From Home, Marisa Tomei seems to be difficult to pin down. While she has dated many popular men such as Lenny Kravitz, Robert Downey Jr., and Christian Slater, none of them convinced her to settle down. Apparently, she is enjoying her life as it is and is not in a rush to find a partner. Despite being single for a while now, she enjoys a very successful career.
Lenny Kravitz is a popular American musician who has made a decades-long career out of writing, singing, producing, and recording music of all kinds. Although popular in the music industry, the dating scene for Kravitz is currently pretty slow. In the past, he has dated Marisa Tomei, Vanessa Paradis, and Lisa Bonet, with whom he had a daughter, Zoe Kravitz.
Sheryl Crow has surely got the Hollywood fame and singing career working right for her, but not when it comes to love relationships. Sheryl used to date Lance Armstrong, one of the world’s most popular cyclists. Rumors said that Armstrong used illegal substances to enhance his cycling performance during competitions. After the two broke it off and the Californian singer remained single ever since.
John Mayer has had a long history of dating Hollywood stars. In the past, he has dated Jessica Simpson, Katy Perry, and even Jennifer Aniston. Mayer keeps his dating life under wraps for the most part, so it’s hard to tell if he is currently seeing anyone.
Lucy Liu is a Japanese-American actress who rose to global fame through her Charlie’s Angels film co-starring Cameron Diaz and Drew Barrymore. As a business enthusiast, Lucy constantly looks for new opportunities, although love doesn’t seem to be included.
In the past, she has dated George Clooney, one of the most popular actors and businessmen in America. In fact, the two were in a very serious relationship but, unfortunately, they never tied the knot. Ever since they broke up, Lucy opted to stay single. She has been raising a child born through a surrogate since 2015, all on her own!
Who isn’t familiar with one of the most talked about families in the world of entertainment? Kourtney Kardashian surely had her fair share of drama tied to the family, being one of the biggest reality show stars in America. She is famously known for her relationship with Scott Disick, with whom she had three children.
Scott’s issues of infidelity and drug addiction eventually brought their relationship to an end. Since that Kardashian family drama, no one has yet asked Kourtney to tie the knot.
Rockstar Joan Jett seldom talked about her private life, which left thousands of her curious fans disappointed. The only thing she has made clear so far was her choice to not get married. The fact that she is absolutely silent about her love choices and affairs makes this belief so convincing. Nevertheless, it seems like this singer is not seeing anyone at the moment.
John Cusack rose to stardom during the 1980s when he became a household name in the film industry. This undeniably paved the way for his relationships with beautiful actresses and colleagues from the industry. Some of them include Neve Campbell, Minnie Driver, and his co-star Lili Taylor in the movie, Say Anything.
Even though his successful career has brought John plenty of attention and fans, he has managed to keep his love life a secret. However, one thing we know for sure is that the actor has not settled down with anyone yet.
A popular Hollywood figure, Owen Wilson starred in some of the 2000s classic comedies which led him to date some popular actresses. Most notable of all is Kate Hudson, whom Owen dated and proposed to back in 2008. Unfortunately, the two broke off the engagement and did not end up tying the knot. After that, Owen went on to date Sheryl Crow but this relationship did not last long either. Despite being unmarried, Owen has now three children coming from different mothers he briefly dated in the past.
Much like her The Office character, Mindy Kaling seemed to mirror the on-again-off-again relationship of Kelly Kapoor with co-worker Ryan Howard (B.J. Novak). However, theirs was never as formally defined as Kelly and Ryan’s. Today, Mindy busies herself with producing, writing, and raising her two children all by herself. While many people speculate that Novak is the father of at least one of her children, Kaling has repeatedly clarified that Novak is only a godfather to them.
Andrea Tantaros was a former political analyst on Fox News. She took on many important roles on TV, including co-hosting shows such as The Five and Outnumbered. When it comes to her love life, Andrea had far less success compared to her TV career. She briefly dated Dave Navarro, a popular singer, and actor who was once married to Carmen Electra. Even though the two seemed to be happy together, they eventually called it quits and Andrea has never gotten into a high-profile relationship since then.
Born in South Africa, Charlize Theron is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful stars in Hollywood. While she has successfully built a flourishing career in the US, she unfortunately failed to find a lifetime partner. Charlize used to date actor Sean Penn, but the two broke things off in 2015. Despite the lack of romance, Charlize is still very happy and satisfied, looking after her kids who were left under her care.
Cote de Pablo
From the popular action police procedural show NCIS, Cote de Pablo played as one of its main stars. During the series run, Cote dated a fellow actor Diego Serrano from 2000 to 2015. After a long relationship, the two broke things off without ever walking down the aisle. Since her last break up, Cote hasn’t dated anyone or gotten into a relationship that we know of.
Playing one of the most endearing characters for the series Game of Thrones, Emilia Clarke found her acting breakthrough upon joining the project. Her role as the Queen of the dragons earned her millions of fans, but sadly, it did not bring her any luck in the love department.
There aren’t many details about Emilia’s dating life other than the rumors involving actor Seth McFarlane a few years ago. Today, we can safely say that this talented actress is not romantically committed to anyone yet.
The first actor on our list is Jon Hamm, who also had no luck in finding a lifetime partner. While he had several notable relationships, Jon never really got married. Jennifer Westfield, a famous actress and a writer, was probably Jon’s most prominent relationship. After all, the two were together for almost two decades. They started dating in 1997 but, unfortunately, ended up separating in 2015.
Shonda Rhimes is the mastermind behind the famous TV show Grey’s Anatomy. She also created award-winning shows How To Get Away with Murder, Scandal, and more recently, Bridgerton. However, when it comes to the love department, this famous and very successful TV producer seemed to have no luck. Nevertheless, Shonda has now three children and she lives a very happy life despite being unmarried. In an interview on Oprah’s show in 2015, Shonda said “I don’t want to get married. At all. Because I could not have the life that I’ve created for myself. I couldn’t do it.”
Famous for her role in the Sleepy Hollow, Miranda Richardson is a one of the successful Hollywood actresses today. As you would have guessed, Miranda is another one of our celebrities who never got married. Back in 2009, Miranda said in an interview, “I think marriage would be quite good for me, but I’m not going to just go out and hire someone. I think, intermittently, that you find Mr. Right, but you have to get lucky. I don’t rule out having a family – it just hasn’t happened for me yet.”
Kristin Davis is one of the iconic actresses who played roles in the TV series, Sex and the City. While her character Charlotte and her family in the show were obsessed with marriage, Kristin in real life seemed otherwise.
Back in 2013 she spoke to Haute Living and said, “If I did marry, it would be someone so awesome, I would bring him in and potentially share time with Gemma (her adopted daughter). I don’t know that I necessarily totally intended to still be single, though I do remember being young and thinking ‘Why are all these people getting married?’ But I’m an actress. I’ve never exactly been the status quo.”
You probably heard about Monica Lewinsky already as she took the spotlight years back, unfortunately, not for good publicity. She was involved in a huge scandal with then-president Bill Clinton. Monica has tried dating since, but she hasn’t had any luck finding a suitable partner after. To make matters worse, she has also struggled finding a stable job after the messy scandal. Surprisingly, Monica returned to public view in 2014, now as a social activist championing issues like cyberbullying.
Mary Louise Parker
Mary Louise Parker earned her fame thanks to her character in the series titled Weeds. Even though she’s had plenty of success with her career, we can’t say the same in her love life. After being together for 8 years, Mary had a child with Billy Crudup. Unfortunately, Billy left her for Claire Danes, seven months into her pregnancy. She later got engaged to Jeffrey Dean Morgan, but the wedding was canceled for unknown reasons. Mary might be single and unwedded now, but she isn’t lonely with her son’s company.
Jennifer Aniston is another Hollywood actress whose relationships were widely discussed in public. The Friends star has only dated prominent celebrities, hence, everyone is interested in the details of her love life.
As you probably know, Jennifer married Brad Pitt in 2000 but they got divorced. Brad then started dating Angelina Jolie after. Jennifer then married Justin Theroux in 2015, but they also split two years later. After these two unsuccessful marriages, Jennifer is just living her best life now as a dog-mom to pups Lord Chesterfield, Clyde, and Sophie.
Dina Meyer started her acting career back in the 90s when she appeared in the popular Fox show titled Beverly Hills, 90210. After that, Dina has starred in several films and made a few TV appearances which saw her career took off exponentially. While she has become quite successful in her career, that doesn’t seem to translate to love, as she is yet to be married. The actress is now 52 years old and still single, and it seems like it won’t be changing at the moment.
On June 4, 2020, Kelly Clarkson filed for divorce from her husband at the time, Brandon Blackstock. The two, who were together for seven years, have two children together. Clarkson has been fairly quiet about pursuing any new romance after her divorce from Blackstock.
Actress Allison Janney has never been married nor has she ever had children. In the past, she has dated off and on, but she does not plan to marry any time soon, if ever. Her acting career, however, she hopes to continue.
Another actress who has never been married? Diane Keaton, who has starred in a plethora of Hollywood hits, including The Godfather and Something’s Gotta Give. She recently told People, “I don’t think that because I’m not married it’s made my life any less. That old maid myth is garbage.”
American Sniper star, Bradley Cooper, has dated around plenty in Hollywood, but he is currently single. The actor, who has been active on screen since 1999, married Jennifer Esposito in 2006, but the couple split up the year after. Cooper had a child with longtime partner, Irina Shayk, in 2017, but their relationship came to an end, too. Who’s to say when this A Star Is Born actor will find love again?
We all know Jim Carrey best for his off-the-wall facial expressions and jokes in movies like The Mask and Ace Ventura: Pet Detective. But what about his romantic life?
Carrey has been married twice, first to Melissa Womer, and then to Lauren Holly, whom he met on the set of Dumb and Dumber. He has one child with Womer. Carrey has also dated Jenny McCarthey and Renee Zellwegger, among other actresses in Hollywood. But today, paparazzi believe he remains single.
Drew Barrymore is no stranger to walking down the aisle. In fact, the Charlie’s Angels actress has been married three times, with one marriage only lasting two months. Barrymore has two children with her third husband, Will Kopelman. Today, Barrymore remains single and considers herself bisexual.
Perhaps actor Ryan Phillippe’s most notable relationship was his marriage to actress Reese Witherspoon. The couple were together from 1999 to 2008 and had two children. Witherspoon went on to marry talent agent James Toth after their split, but Phillippe remains single.
Even though Hailee Steinfeld is only 24, her dating life has still been covered in nearly every current magazine or tabloid. The “Love Myself” singer and Dickinson actress once dated musician Niall Horan but has since remained single, at least to the public eye.
When she’s not working on TV or walking down the model runway, Tyra Banks is likely pursuing even more creative ventures. Banks has never been married, but some reports state she is still with her long-term boyfriend, Louis Belanger-Martin.
Perhaps actress Sophia Bush’s most famous Hollywood relationship was with Chad Michael Murray, whom she was married to for five months. Since her separation from Murray, Bush has dated James Lafferty, Austin Nichols, and Dan Fredinburg, a Google worker. Right now, rumors are that Bush is single.
Rihanna has had a long history with having her romantic life hit the headlines (think: Chris Brown). Today, Rihanna works extremely hard to produce music and keep her makeup and fashion empire afloat. She presumably does not have a lot of time to date, which might be part of the reason she is currently single.
Milo Ventimiglia, who is most famous for his roles on Gilmore Girls and This Is Us, is surprisingly still single. During his time on Gilmore Girls, he dated his costar, Alexis Bledel. Ventimiglia has also dated Hayden Panettiere. Today, though, rumors have it that this Hollywood star is single.
Selena Gomez earned her claim to fame first with her role as Alex Russo on Disney Channel’s Wizards of Waverly Place. Since then, she has appeared in countless movies and TV shows, and she has also wrote plenty of music. As far as relationships go, Gomez has dated Nick Jonas, Justin Bieber, and Zedd. Today, she is single, though.
Perhaps the most notable and public relationship that model Bella Hadid had was with her now-ex-boyfriend, The Weeknd. The two split up in 2019 after dating on and off since 2015. No current rumors exist on whether or not Hadid has a new partner.
Chelsea Handler, best known for her comedy, is indeed another surprisingly single celeb. Before she became single, Handler dated Ted Harbert, the former Comcast CEO, for about four years from 2006 to 2010. In 2011, she dated 50 Cent. Her most recent public relationship ended in 2013, when she broke up with Andre Balazs, a famous hotel worker.
Kim Kardashian is arguably one of the most talked about celebrities in Hollywood. She has been married three times, first to music producer Damon Thomas, then to NBA player Kris Humphries, and most recently to singer Kanye West. On February 19, 2021, Kardashian filed for divorce, making her one of the most surprisingly-still-single celebrities to-date.
Tracee Ellis Ross
Bad Girls star Tracee Ellis Ross is currently single, despite rumors she has a boyfriend, specifically Harry Styles. “I am happily single,” she said in an interview in October 2020. “Though that doesn’t mean I am not open to and don’t want a relationship.”
Before the Mad Men star recently dated Bachelor‘s Nick Viall, she had also dated Ashton Kutcher, whom she met through modeling for Abercrombie & Fitch. She has also been in relationships with Jason Sudeikis, Josh Groban, and Bobby Flay. Today, though, she remains single.
Connie Britton, who has acted on and off since 1980 is also currently still single. Her most famous on-screen roles include Friday Night Lights, American Horror Story, and most recently, Dirty John. In 1989, nine years after she began her acting career, Britton married an investment banker, whom she later divorced in 1991. To this day, she still keeps her former husband’s last name, but she remains single.
Bravo mogul and radio and TV host, Andy Cohen, recently shared with BravoTV.com he believes being single is “OK.” He said parenthood makes meeting people “heavy” and explained, “You’re not only dating me, but you’re gonna date – you know, my son’s in the picture. So it seems like a lot.” Cohen has one son, Benjamin Allen Cohen.
Without Meg Ryan, rom-com movies like You’ve Got Mail and When Harry Met Sally would never be the same. Although her relationships in such movies seemed to end well, the same is not entirely true of her real-life ones.
Ryan was married to Dennis Quaid from 1991 to 1992, and it took nine years for their divorce to finalize, which occurred in 2001. Later, in 2010, she began dating John Mellencamp. The two dated for four years, took a break, and then became engaged. Their engagement, however, broke a year later. Today, Ryan is single, despite recently connecting with Mellencamp.
Rapper and former Degrassi actor, Drake is also currently single. Perhaps his most notable and memorable Hollywood relationship was with Rihanna from 2009 to 2016. Drake, however, also had another serious relationship with Sophie Brussaux, with whom he shares a son. Now, Drake is reportedly single, but there were rumors he recently had a new girlfriend.
Yet another surprisingly single celebrity is Zac Efron, who has recently starred in Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile as Ted Bundy. Effron started his career on screen in 2002, when he appeared on various TV shows, like ER, Firefly, and The Guardian. He has also starred in some Hollywood hits, like The Greatest Showman.
But, acting isn’t the only thing Efron has a long history with; he has also dated around quite a bit. Most recently, however, the High School Musical alum broke up with his girlfriend, Vanessa, Valladares, after about 10 months of dating. Ever since, he has been single.
