When you have enough money to spend for every whim that you think of, you could say that there are no rules for you. Such is the case for some of these Hollywood couples who have done the unimaginable by marrying the same person more than once. We all know that love is hard to find, but whoever thought that it was possible to find love more than once in the same person. These 20 couples of Hollywood have all said their “I do”s once but decided to try again after finding their paths crossing yet again. As they are too wealthy to even bother worrying about the price of not just one lavish wedding, these power couples could not care less about the price tag of two. These couples have fiercely taken a second chance at finding happiness with the person they initially divorced. This list of celeb couples who have decided to marry the same person once again will surely leave you stunned as it normally does not happen to regular couples.
Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson
Let us first start off this list with one of the most celebrated actresses of our time, Melanie Griffith. Even before Griffith ever laid eyes on the hunky actor Antonio Banderas, there was a special man in her life. She actually fell deeply in love with Don Johnson so much so that the two actually got hitched two times. Their first marriage took place back in 1976. It only lasted for a short 6 months until they decided to call it quits. Then the two met again, fell even more in love which resulted in a second marriage. The couple after rekindling their romance, dated for a while then got married again in 1989. It was then that Melanie gave birth to a gorgeous daughter Dakota that year. Even she has grown up to become a big Hollywood actress these days. The two eventually separated for good by 1995.
Eminem and Kim Scott
We all know and love the undisputed best white rapper in Hip-hop, Eminem. He has spawned many hits including ‘Lose Yourself’, “Love The Way You Lie” and “Monster”. But even he has had a very bumpy ride when it comes to his love life. The rapper has been linked to several celebs but none compares to the mother of his daughter, Kim Scott. Eminem or rather, Marshall Mathers and Kim Scott first fell in love and decided to get married in the year 1999. This marriage went on from 1999–2001. But soon they found out that they were not good for each other, so they decided to split. After linking up once again in 2006, the two of them decided to tie the knot once more. Even this marriage did not last and the two quickly got a divorce after a short while.
Jacki Weaver and Derryn Hinch
Silver Linings Playbook actress Jacki Weaver is one woman who is not afraid to play the marriage game. She has been married five times in her lifetime. While most people are lucky enough to find just one person willing to marry them, this actress has managed to find several men to wed. She was in fact married twice to Derryn Hinch. She is one fearless woman who does not give a care in the world when people say that they can only marry one person in a lifetime. Their first marriage took place back in 1983 which went on till 1996. This was a very long marriage in comparison to their second one. The two then tried once more and got hitched in 1997 as they thought they were still meant for each other. But after just a year of trying to make things work, they ended up getting a divorce and have both never looked back.
Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton
We all know and love the legendary Hollywood actress Elizabeth Taylor. She was considered one of the most beautiful women in the world winning millions of hearts all over the globe. Till today, she is often referred to as one of the most desirable women ever to grace the silver screen.

She even ended up marrying Richard Burton more than once. The first marriage between these two took place and lasted from 1964-1974. They went their own ways but found each other again and decided to try once more by marrying each other from 1975-1976. Throughout her life, Liz was married eight times, having as much as seven husbands while Burton got married five times to four different women.
Larry King and Alene Akins
You would think that a man would never be too careless in marrying someone but that is certainly not the case for talk show legend Larry King. He has gotten married so many times in his lifetime and is quite unbelievable. Larry King is tied with Elizabeth Taylor for the number of marriages they are both involved in. The two of them have had eight marriages in total. He and Alene Akins have been married two times. the couple first said their “I do”s back in 1961. Their marriage lasted till 1963. After getting separated for a while, they eventually crawled back to each other and quickly fell in love again. Their second marriage lasted from 1967 to 1972. These two share a daughter named Chaia. She was born during their second marriage and so they at least have a reminder that can always keep them from making the same mistake.
Barbara Walters and Merv Adelson
Another talk show legend makes out the list and would quite surprise you. We are all aware of how squeaky clean Barbara Walters is. She is usually the one who is interviewing people, asking them about their personal lives, who they are dating and whatnot.

But then just after a short while, they again decided that it was time they went for a second try. Unfortunately, even their second marriage did not last as it only lasted from 1986–1992. We are sure that Barbara must have many tips and advice to tell her viewers if ever the topic of marriage comes her way.

His relationship with the famous bodybuilder Gladys Portugues has become very quite scandalous. The two first tied the know back in 1987. This wedding lasted only till 1992. They broke up because Jean-Claude was having an affair with fellow actress Darcy LaPier. He soon got married to LaPier. Even this pairing did not work out. He soon made his way back to Portugues. So then the couple decided yet again to exchange vows in 1999. Years later, they filed for a divorce in 2015. Even since they, they have remained out of each other’s lives.

Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera
You must have seen this famous female painter somewhere on social media at least. Many of the feminists we see these days love to post pictures about Frida who is undoubtedly one of the most courageous and artistic women to ever exist. She refused to conform to the beauty standards that existed even during her time and was a powerful voice that embraced her individuality and uniqueness. But even she had a rough life when it came down to her personal life. This next couple is made of two famed painters Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera. Even they have adopted the art of marrying twice like our other celebs on the list. The couple had their first marriage from 1929 to 1939.

Richard Pryor and Jennifer Lee and Flynn Belaine
This one is definitely one for the books because certainly, this could never happen to anyone else. It is such an unbelievable feat to achieve which could only happen due to coincidence right? Richard Pryor is one strange man who has a very special case of getting married twice to not just one but two women! He married Jennifer Lee from 1979–1982, only to marry Flynn Belaine from 1986-1987. But after they split up he again tied the know with Flynn which lasted 1990-1991. This again opened a window to let he and his former wife rekindle their flame which they had lost during their first marriage. So they took up the chance to start again and you could say it ended up paying off really well. He and Lee again decided to get married in 2001 until he died in the year 2005.
Lana Turner and Joseph Stephen Crane
They say that the best way to win over a man’s heart is through his stomach. But the couple we are about to read about has flipped this saying and exchanged the roles of man and woman in the context. This is the case of Lana Turner who has had her fair share of failed marriages with some more addition due to her marriage with Joseph Stephen Turner. Lana Turner is another star who had eight marriages under her belt. Two of these marriages were with restaurateur Joseph Stephen Crane.

After things blew off they decided on trying again in 1943 which lead to Cheryl their daughter being born. They ended up separating for good by 1944.
Stan Laurel and Virginia Ruth Rogers
It is often said that comedians are entirely different in real life. This next couple proves just that. We all know that Stan Stan Laurel who is from the legendary Laurel and Hardy. His personal life is one that has made people talk because of how unstable he is with his women. Although he personifies a very lovable and naive character on screen his real personality is the stark opposite of his roles in shows and movies. He has married Virginia Ruth Rogers two times. He took her as his second and fourth wife. Their first go was in 1935 and went on till 1938. He got married to another woman for 2 years after which he ended up with Rogers again.

You may have heard of the actress Rosemary Clooney who is indeed George Clooney’s aunt. Obviously, the trait does not apply to all of the family members as she is very different from her nephew in her approach towards marriage. She has been married two times to Jose Ferrer. The couple’s first marriage took place from 1952 and lasted till 1961. Then the two decided to try again and their second marriage only lasted from 1964 to 1967. During their first round of marriage, the couple had 5 beautiful kids whom they have both worked very hard at raising. Do you think anyone of these children looks like their cousin George?
Ben Stein and Alexandra Denman
We have all seen this actor who has never actually been a leading actor in the movies we watch. Ben has always landed roles in movies as a minor character who usually adds humor to the film or show he is on. e never actually pay attention to the love life of Hollywood actors or actresses if they are not so appealing to the eyes but it does not mean that they do not have their fair share of ups and downs too you know. We are quite sure that you have never heard of this side of Ben Stein. His relationship status is quite the shocker because he and his wife Alexandra Denman have been married two times. She works as an entertainment lawyer. Their first marriage was back in 1968 and lasted till 1974. They met again after 3 years and got married for the second time. They are still together.
George C. Scott and Colleen Dewhurst
Some people are just too darn stubborn to accept that they are not meant for each other. They will never accept defeat and will always strike on the little flame that is left from their previous relationship together. These two actors fell madly in love when they first met and quickly decided on getting married. But like everyone on this list ended up in a divorce which would eventually lead to another marriage. They tried to make their marriage work firstly getting married from 1960–1965. Normally most couples would throw in the towel but not these two. They saw the opportunity to get together again and so without any questions asked, pursued each other yet again. Then they tried a second time which lasted from 1967–1972. Scott got married fives times in total.
