Famous Celebs Who Have Never Married
By Lyra Radford | August 11, 2017
There are plenty of celebrities have never been married and not just the Millennials either, tons of celebs, from their 40s and well into their 70s have never been married and have no desire to ever do so. Some don't believe in the institution of marriage as a whole, while others just don’t have the time or patience to settle down. They already have financial security and in many cases children of their own, and they just don’t see a purpose to getting married.
When professional bachelor Leonardo Dicaprio was asked if he believes in marriage, he replied, "That time will come when that time comes. The truth is, you can’t predict marriage. You can’t plan it. It’s just going to happen when it happens." It's no wonder he isn't worried about settling down, the 42-year-old actor has been just about every woman's 'dream guy' his entire adult life. He also spent his youth as a 'teen heart throb' thanks to his role in "Growing pains" in the 1990s.
Oprah Winfrey has definitely been way too busy conquering the world to settle down and get married. Although, the Producer, Journalist, and successful business woman has been dating Stedman Graham for over 25 years. Every few years or so the rumor mill spits out a story of these two finally tying the knot. And every time Oprah steps up and says she has plenty of projects in the works but a wedding isn't one of them.
The stunning woman who brought the ever-so-charming Lorelai Gilmore to life has yet to tie the knot. Graham has been in a long-term relationship with actor Peter Krause. The couple first met in 1995, but didn’t become an item until 2010, while playing siblings playing on “Parenthood.” They are now living together in Los Angeles
The ever-charming, often bumbling Hugh Grant was in a 13-year relationship with gorgeous model and actress Elizabeth Hurley, but he never took the leap. He became godfather to Hurley's child and even has a child of his own with Tinglan Hong but no one to call wifey. The actor has made no secret of his commitment issues. He once said to Howard Stern, "Do I think human beings are meant to be in 40-year-long monogamous, faithful relationships? No, no, no.”
Oscar-winning actress Marisa Tomei has dated leading men like Robert Downey Jr., Christian Slater, and Lenny Kravitz. She was even engaged to Logan Marshall-Green but they split up. She later remarked, "I’m not that big a fan of marriage as an institution and I don’t know why women need to have children to be seen as complete human beings."
Seth MacFarlane, the mastermind behind the popular animated series, Family Guy is among the pool of celebrities who just don’t seem to want to marry. He briefly dated actress Emilia Clarke–the gorgeous ‘khaleesi’ of Game of Thrones. As is often the case with celebrity couples, scheduling conflicts and distance put too much strain on the relationship.
Everyone was pretty convinced Drew Carey and his longtime partner Nicole Jaracz were going to get married but alas, it wasn’t so. Carey proposed to her back in 2007 and has always been a father figure to her son Connor, from a previous relationship. They had no children together and called off their engagement in 2012.
Self-proclaimed player, Allison Janney has no plans to settle down. The 57-year old comedic actress currently co-stars alongside Anna Faris in the hit show Mom and has no intentions of slowing down. She once told an E! Interviewer, "I want to be a player! I'm still single! I want to feel sexy and young and pretty for as long as I can."
Comedian Garry Shandling has never been one to discuss his personal life with the media but it’s no secret that he’s never married. He has come close, he was engaged for 7-years to Playboy model Linda Doucett. They shared an apartment from 1987 to 1994 but never had children or married.
Wilt Chamberlain never married or had children (that anyone knows of) but he claimed to have had sex with over 20,000 women. That's a whole lot of possible 'baby mamas' out there. He made it a point to never sleep with a married woman–because you've got to draw the line somewhere. And he never showed interest in getting married himself.
