22. Maya Rudolph and Paul Thomas Anderson
Raise your hand if you had no idea Maya Rudolph was married — with four children. The couple has been together since 2001. Okay, actually, she isn't technically married but she does refer to Paul Thomas Anderson, the award-winning filmmaker, as her husband. She explained to The New York Times, "People know what that means. It means he’s the father of my child, and I live with him, and we are a couple, and we are not going anywhere."

In case you aren't familiar with Paul's work, one of his recent creations was the critically acclaimed Phantom Thread. Interestingly, he shared that the movie's inspiration came from his marriage to Maya, particularly a moment when he was sick with the flu. He told Collider, "When I get sick, I deal with it in a few different ways. First, I get very cranky and I pretend that I’m not sick because I don’t want to be slowed down. I don’t want to miss anything. Usually, that can work. But if that doesn’t work, and you get really sick and you’re flat on your back, you need help and you become vulnerable. I remember that I was very sick, just with the flu, and I looked up and my wife looked at me with tenderness that made me think, 'I wonder if she wants to keep me this way, maybe for a week or two.'" We can only assume the rest of their relationship doesn't reflect the film's.
