Marvel Actors And Their Real-Life Partners

They might be invincible on-screen, but off-screen the cast of the Marvel Cinematic Universe are only as human as the rest of us. They even have the complicated and sometimes tumultuous relationship histories to prove it.

130628982 Marvel Actors And Their Real-Life Partners

Some of these relationship histories you’ll already know much about; these are some of the most famous and most talked-about people on the planet, after all.

[adunit mobile=”RTK_dVa8″]

There are many more MCU actors who have preferred to keep their romantic lives out of the spotlight, however – but we’ve done the digging to keep you updated all the same.

casal Marvel Actors And Their Real-Life Partners

Here are 30 of Marvel’s biggest current stars, and their real-life partners past and present.

30. Robert Downey Jr

After a notorious hard-living spell in which he was involved with many famous women, including Sarah Jessica Parker and Marisa Tomei, Robert Downey Jr finally settled down in 2003 with producer Susan Levin.

The pair first met on the set of Gothika – Downey instantly fell for Susan, but she revealed that she thought he was ‘weird’!

Screen Shot 2019 01 09 at 10.49.36 Marvel Actors And Their Real-Life Partners

Two years later, the pair were married.

[adunit mobile=”RTK_wCZW”]

Their two children Exton Elias and Avri Roel were born in 2012 and 2014 respectively. Downey and Levin have remained together ever since, and Downey says his wife has played a big part in his staying clean since 2003.

Screen Shot 2019 01 09 at 10.49.59 Marvel Actors And Their Real-Life Partners

The actor once stated: “The old saying is true – behind every good man there’s an incredible woman.

I owe a huge amount – if not all – of my success to Susan. We make a great team, and all that luck I spoke about, that’s Susan.”

Now find out which famous Marvel actor made a very interesting pact with his wife…



29. Chris Hemsworth

Even before he first arrived on the scene as Thor in 2011, Chris Hemsworth was firmly settled down.

In 2010, in the space of less than a year, the actor had met and married Spanish actress Elsa Pataky.

Hemsworth and Pataky now have three children together, with India born in 2012 and twins Tristan and Sasha born in 2014.

Screen Shot 2019 01 09 at 10.50.27 Marvel Actors And Their Real-Life Partners

The family live in Byron Bay, New South Wales and are both dedicated to raising their kids in the best way possible.

In fact, Elsa recently revealed that the couple have a very strict parenting pact when it comes to their children…

[adunit mobile=”RTK_dVa8″]

They won’t accept a film or TV project unless one of the couple is available to look after the kids. It’s refreshing to find a celebrity couple who don’t rely on nannies to raise their children!

Screen Shot 2019 01 09 at 10.50.56 Marvel Actors And Their Real-Life Partners

Now Elsa is starring in her very own Australian TV series, it’s time for Chris to step up and help with parenting duties!

Still, like all good celebrities, the couple do manage to make time for some glamorous red carpet appearances together.

On the next page we reveal which Marvel actress has been through a whirlwind of different romances during her time in the spotlight.

28. Scarlett Johansson

At the age of only 33 years old, Scarlett Johansson has already been on a rollercoaster in terms of relationships.

[adunit mobile=”RTK_wCZW”]

She’s already got two divorces, one baby and a string of celebrity romances to her name.

Screen Shot 2019 01 09 at 10.51.25 Marvel Actors And Their Real-Life Partners

From 2008 to 2011, blonde bombshell Johansson was married to fellow Marvel superhero star Ryan Reynolds.

Then she moved onto husband number two, but sadly it didn’t last long and in 2017 she was divorced from French businessman Romain Dauriac (pictured below), with whom she has one child.

Following her divorce, Johansson is currently dating Saturday Night Live star Colin Jost.

[adunit mobile=”RTK_z9hm”]

They made their red carpet debut at the premiere for Avengers: Infinity War earlier this year and the actress revealed that she was excited to be photographed with her new beau in front of the entire world’s waiting press and media.

Screen Shot 2019 01 09 at 10.51.54 Marvel Actors And Their Real-Life Partners

The couple were last spotted in Prague this summer where Scarlett was filming an upcoming WWII satire film named Jojo Rabbit.

And Scarlett isn’t the only Avengers star to have dated some famous faces…

27. Chris Evans

As is befitting a handsome young superstar actor, Chris Evans has dated a number of beautiful actresses in his time, including Lily Collins, Minka Kelly and Jessica Biel.

[adunit mobile=”RTK_dVa8″]

He’s definitely been a lucky man when it comes to the ladies!

Lately, however, Evans has only had eyes for one woman.

Screen Shot 2019 01 09 at 10.53.04 Marvel Actors And Their Real-Life Partners

So who exactly has managed to steal his heart once and for all?

Since 2016, Evans has been in an on-off thing with Jenny Slate.

They first got together in late 2016 and then broke up in early 2017…

[adunit mobile=”RTK_wCZW”]

Only to get back together in late 2017 and break up once more at the beginning of 2018.

Slate has spoken about her relationship with Evans in interviews but who knows what the future holds?

At this rate, they should be due back together before the end of the year.

Screen Shot 2019 01 09 at 10.52.27 Marvel Actors And Their Real-Life Partners

Evans might be down in the dumps at the moment, but one of his Avengers co-stars has found love again after a very public divorce.

26. Chris Pratt

Chris Pratt is an international heart throb thanks to roles in films such as Jurassic Park and of course – Guardians of the Galaxy.

[adunit mobile=”RTK_z9hm”]

Having met Anna Faris on-set in 2007, Chris Pratt soon put a ring on it, marrying the actress in 2009.

The couple had a child soon after – Jack, born 2012 – and it looked for a while like Hollywood had a rare happy famous marriage on its hands.

However, things just weren’t all that they seemed behind the scenes.

Screen Shot 2019 01 09 at 10.55.14 Marvel Actors And Their Real-Life Partners

In 2017, however, Pratt and Faris announced their shock separation, with Pratt filing for divorce later that year.

Pratt is now dating Katherine Schwarzenegger, daughter of Arnold, but happily he and Faris have lately been seen out and about again with pals, hopefully a sign that the two still intend to stay friends.

[adunit mobile=”RTK_dVa8″]

Meanwhile, it looks as though Pratt is happily dating Katherine, and the couple can often be spotted out and about in LA enjoying dinner dates. Here they are at a recent house party:

Screen Shot 2019 01 09 at 10.55.41 Marvel Actors And Their Real-Life Partners

Aww!

Not every Avengers star has a string of high-profile romances under their belt though…

25. Paul Rudd

Unlike most of the Avengers, Paul Rudd’s personal life has never really become the focus of tabloid gossip.

The actor clearly likes to keep things nice and private.

[adunit mobile=”RTK_wCZW”]

In fact, Rudd has quietly been enjoying a settled private life – and continues to do so even in the wake of the success of his movie Ant-Man.

Screen Shot 2019 01 09 at 10.56.04 Marvel Actors And Their Real-Life Partners

Rudd’s romantic life is reassuringly boring: happily married for the last 15 years to Julie Yaeger, Rudd also has two children – son Jack (born 2005) and daughter Darby (born 2010).

That doesn’t mean Rudd hasn’t had flings in the past, however – he actually dated his eventual Friends co-star Jennifer Aniston in 1998.

Who knew?! Check out the throwback photo below for definite proof:

Screen Shot 2019 01 09 at 10.56.27 Marvel Actors And Their Real-Life Partners

Still, Paul Rudd’s dating history is nothing compared to this particular Avengers star, who probably ended up regretting his romance after all of the publicity it generated…

[adunit mobile=”RTK_z9hm”]

Click on the next page to find out who we’re talking about!

24. Tom Hiddleston

Apart from that highly-publicised and much-discussed relationship with Taylor Swift, Tom Hiddleston’s romantic life has remained something of a mystery.

The bizarre Hiddleswift era saw Tom meeting Taylor’s parents after they dated for about two minutes, and reached peak cringeworthy when the actor stepped out wearing a vest saying ‘I love Taylor Swift’.

After nearly ending his career in one paparazzi shot, the two famous faces decided to part ways (much to the relief of Tom’s agent).

Screen Shot 2019 01 09 at 10.57.09 Marvel Actors And Their Real-Life Partners

However, there are still plenty of women that Hiddleston has been connected to – Jessica Chastain, Kat Dennings, Lara Pulver – so it looks as though he hasn’t been put off dating famous women (we just hope he knows not wear a t shirt with their name on).

[adunit mobile=”RTK_dVa8″]

However there are only two ladies we know of that he’s definitely dated.

So who are the mystery women?

These are Swift, and his Wallander co-star Susannah Fielding (pictured below), who he dated until 2011.

Otherwise, we’re still in the dark about his relationship status, so any Hiddleston fans out there will be pleased to know he’s probably on the market.

Screen Shot 2019 01 09 at 10.57.36 Marvel Actors And Their Real-Life Partners

Luckily some of Tom’s co-stars have had slightly less embarrassing hook-ups in the past.

[adunit mobile=”RTK_wCZW”]

Read on to find out which Marvel actress has twins with an Italian artist.

23. Zoe Saldana

Zoe Saldana has been happily married since 2013 to Italian artist Marco Perego, with whom she has three children: twins Bowie and Cy, born 2014, and Zen, born 2017.

The loved-up pair can often be spotted hanging out with their celebrity fans or giving adoring interviews about each other.

Marco has even broken with tradition and taken Zoe’s last name – he’s now known professionally as Marco Perego Saldana.

Screen Shot 2019 01 09 at 10.58.14 Marvel Actors And Their Real-Life Partners

Before that, Saldana was in a relationship for 11 years with actor Keith Britton until 2011.

In between those two long-term relationships, however, Saldana managed to fit in a serious romance with one of her fellow Marvel superheroes.

[adunit mobile=”RTK_z9hm”]

That’s right, from 2011 to 2013, Saldana dated Guardians of the Galaxy co-star Bradley Cooper.

With a hint of slight controversy, Saldana married Perego only a few months after breaking up with Cooper. It looks as though things worked out though because she and Perego are happily married to this day.

Screen Shot 2019 01 09 at 10.58.38 Marvel Actors And Their Real-Life Partners

Now it’s time to find out which screen legend has managed to retain one of the most stable relationships in Hollywood.

Can you guess who it is?

22. Samuel L Jackson

Now 69, shiny-headed sex machine Samuel L Jackson isn’t someone you’d still expect to be dating like many of his Avengers co-stars.

[adunit mobile=”RTK_dVa8″]

Jackson’s the very opposite, in fact, with a marriage that looks remarkably secure for a Hollywood partnership.

Check out the cute red carpet pic below:

Screen Shot 2019 01 09 at 10.59.04 Marvel Actors And Their Real-Life Partners

Jackson has been married to actress LaTanya Richardson since 1980, meaning they’ve got a ruby anniversary coming up in a couple of years.

Together, they have one daughter, Zoe, born in 1982. LaTanya can often be found at Jackon’s side whenever he’s starring in another hit film and needs to do some publicity.

[adunit mobile=”RTK_wCZW”]

Their marriage has been scandal free and it looks as though they’re going to be together forever.

Screen Shot 2019 01 09 at 10.59.25 Marvel Actors And Their Real-Life Partners

Here they are looking a lot younger during an interview at their LA home back in the 80s:

Now let’s take a look at a lesser-known star of the Marvel franchise…

21. Chadwick Boseman

Considering he’s only risen to prominence in the last few years, thanks to his being cast as Black Panther, it’s no surprise that Chadwick Boseman’s recent dating history has been spared in the tabloids.

[adunit mobile=”RTK_z9hm”]

Lately, however, the gossip rag appetite for info on Boseman has risen along with his star status.

Screen Shot 2019 01 09 at 10.59.53 Marvel Actors And Their Real-Life Partners

Any fans of the actor who are hoping he’s single are about to be disappointed though.

Thanks to a lot of paparazzi snooping and a confirmation from Boseman’s own grandma, we now know that King T’Challa has been in a relationship with singer Taylor Simone Ledward since 2015.

And we’ve managed to dig up some photos of the couple together.

Screen Shot 2019 01 09 at 11.00.16 Marvel Actors And Their Real-Life Partners

Thank goodness for grandmas and their gossiping ways!

[adunit mobile=”RTK_dVa8″]

Boseman and Ledward haven’t managed to entirely escape the paparazzi anyway. Here they are enjoying the basketball together:

Now find out which superstar recently got married in a secret ceremony in the Hamptons.

20. Gwyneth Paltrow

You might know Gwyneth Paltrow’s dating history better than you know her movies.

From 1994 to 1997 there was Brad Pitt; from 1997 to 2000, there was Ben Affleck; then, starting in 2002, there was Coldplay’s Chris Martin. Paltrow and Martin married in 2003, had two children (Apple and Moses) and famously ‘consciously uncoupled’ in 2014, with divorce following shortly after.

Screen Shot 2019 01 09 at 11.00.48 Marvel Actors And Their Real-Life Partners

Paltrow has been with TV producer Brad Falchuk since 2014, and the couple have just married in a lavish wedding ceremony in the Hamptons.

[adunit mobile=”RTK_wCZW”]

There were plenty of celebrity guests in attendance including Jerry Seinfeld and Cameron Diaz.

Rumours abounded that the pair had secretly tied the knot in a New York ceremony but it turned out to be their official engagement announcement:

Screen Shot 2019 01 09 at 11.01.32 Marvel Actors And Their Real-Life Partners

Now it’s time to find out which Hollywood actor recently got hitched to a younger model (who also happened to be his personal assistant).

19. Josh Brolin

Josh Brolin had already been married twice before meeting Kathryn Boyd, so the 50-year-old actor will be hoping that third time’s the charm with his current wife.

[adunit mobile=”RTK_z9hm”]

He got hitched to the model in 2016 after Boyd was working as his personal assistant.

Previously, Brolin had been married to actress Alice Adair from 1988 to 1994, and to Oscar-nominated actress Diane Lane from 2004 until 2013.

Screen Shot 2019 01 09 at 11.01.59 Marvel Actors And Their Real-Life Partners

His marriage to Diane was hit by controversy when the actress phoned police and Brolin was arrested on a misdemeanour charge of domestic battery.

However, Lane refused to press charges and later said that the incident had been a misunderstanding.

In terms of kids and family, Brolin has two children with his first wife Adair and another on the way with Boyd.

[adunit mobile=”RTK_dVa8″]

Congratulations!

Screen Shot 2019 01 09 at 11.02.28 Marvel Actors And Their Real-Life Partners

On the next page we reveal which Oscar-winning actor’s relationship might be on the rocks.

18. Bradley Cooper

Up until recently, Bradley Cooper was something of a playboy, especially following the breakup of his brief marriage to Jennifer Esposito in 2007.

[adunit mobile=”RTK_wCZW”]

Cooper has dated many famous women, including Renee Zellweger, Zoe Saldana and even British model Suki Waterhouse (the ex-couple are photographed below at Wimbledon back when they were dating).

Since 2015, however, the Cooper dating train has come to a stop.

Screen Shot 2019 01 09 at 11.02.55 Marvel Actors And Their Real-Life Partners

Cooper has been with Russian model Irina Shayk since then, and the two are parents to a daughter as of last year.

However, rumours are currently swirling that the couple are set to break up – they haven’t been photographed together for quite some time.

[adunit mobile=”RTK_z9hm”]

Several sources close to the couple also claim that the celebrity pair have been miserable for months.

Yikes! Whatever happens, the couple are clearly in love with their little daughter and have previously been spotted playing with her on the beach and taking her for strolls around NYC.

Screen Shot 2019 01 09 at 11.03.16 Marvel Actors And Their Real-Life Partners

Fortunately one actor has had a smoother time of things in the love department.

17. Benedict Cumberbatch

He was once named one of the Most Eligible Bachelors in the United Kingdom by Tatler magazine.

[adunit mobile=”RTK_dVa8″]

However, fans of the actor probably won’t be surprised to learn that the Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch is living a much quieter life these days.

In 2015, Cumberbatch married Sophie Hunter, a theatre director and a friend for some 17 years. The pair have been very busy since then.

Screen Shot 2019 01 09 at 11.14.17 Marvel Actors And Their Real-Life Partners

Cumberbatch and Hunter now have two children together: Christopher Carlton, born 2015, and Hal Auden, born last year. The couple also announced that they’re expecting their third child in September this year – Hunter turned up to the Emmy awards with a burgeoning baby bump.

[adunit mobile=”RTK_wCZW”]

So it’s more than likely that there will soon be the patter of little feet around the Cumberbatch household in the near future!

Screen Shot 2019 01 09 at 11.14.54 Marvel Actors And Their Real-Life Partners

Congratulations guys!

Now click on the next page to find out which actor is still struggling with a painful divorce.

16. Jeremy Renner

We may not have seen him in Infinity War, but Jeremy Renner is still very much a part of the Avengers, and will be due back fighting at the side of…whichever Avengers happen to still be alive in Avengers 4.

[adunit mobile=”RTK_z9hm”]

In any case, we’re sure there’ll still be plenty of Avengers films to fill cinemas in the future. While Renner’s absence in Infinity War is a mystery, the actor’s personal life is far less shrouded in secrecy.

Screen Shot 2019 01 09 at 11.15.23 Marvel Actors And Their Real-Life Partners

He and model Sonni Pacheco, mother of Renner’s daughter, went through a rather public divorce process through 2014-15.

Poor old Jeremy revealed in interviews that the split had taken its toll on him physically, and that he was struggling to sleep at night in the wake of the split.

Screen Shot 2019 01 09 at 11.17.35 Marvel Actors And Their Real-Life Partners

However, he has since failed to comment on the actual nature of the divorce proceedings.

It’s currently unknown who Renner is dating, if anyone.

[adunit mobile=”RTK_dVa8″]

Things are definitely going better for this Avengers star…

15. Paul Bettany

Prepare to go “awww” because this relationship is definitely one of the cutest things we’ve ever heard about!

Not only is Paul Bettany’s relationship with fellow actor Jennifer Connelly absolutely rock solid, but the story of how they met is adorable.

Bettany had had a crush on Connelly from when she starred in Labyrinth aged 15 (don’t worry, they’re the same age so it’s not that creepy).

Screen Shot 2019 01 09 at 11.18.11 Marvel Actors And Their Real-Life Partners

Bettany then called up his Beautiful Mind co-star and asked her to marry him after the September 11 attacks encouraged him to take stock of his life.

[adunit mobile=”RTK_wCZW”]

At that point, they had never even dated; she said yes anyway. They married in 2003, had two children born in 2003 and 2011, and still seem ridiculously happy today.

That’s quite a story!

The couple can often be seen on the red carpet together or away on holiday with their kids. Despite the less than conventional proposal, it looks as though these two are very happy together!

Screen Shot 2019 01 09 at 11.18.39 Marvel Actors And Their Real-Life Partners

On the next page we reveal which Marvel actress has been dating several of her co-stars within the franchise.

14. Elizabeth Olsen

Elizabeth Olsen has had quite the dating history.

[adunit mobile=”RTK_z9hm”]

For some reason, the actress has been romantically linked to at least three of her Avengers co-stars – Tom Hiddleston, Chris Evans and Jeremy Renner.

However it’s been officially confirmed that Elizabeth Olsen has definitely been in two serious non-Marvel relationships since joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Screen Shot 2019 01 09 at 11.19.01 Marvel Actors And Their Real-Life Partners

From 2012 until 2015, Olsen dated and eventually became engaged to Narcos actor Boyd Holbrook, before breaking things off.

Olsen now calls Robbie Arnett, of the band Milo Greene, her boyfriend.

[adunit mobile=”RTK_dVa8″]

The pair have been together since March of last year and definitely make a cute couple.

We think they look cute together!

Screen Shot 2019 01 09 at 11.19.23 Marvel Actors And Their Real-Life Partners

Now it’s time to take a look at which famous actor (who is rumoured to be starring in another well-known franchise) is just about to tie the knot for the third time.

Can you guess who we’re talking about?

13. Idris Elba

Idris Elba’s probably not going to be James Bond, but he doesn’t really need to be when he’s still picking up women regularly at the age of 45 anyway.

[adunit mobile=”RTK_wCZW”]

Already twice married and divorced, with one marriage lasting just four months, Elba also has two children, with Isan born in 2002 and Winston born in 2014.

Screen Shot 2019 01 09 at 11.19.44 Marvel Actors And Their Real-Life Partners

He’s currently engaged to Sabrina Dhowre, a 29-year-old model, whom he met in 2017.

Elba proposed at a screening of his latest film Yardie earlier in the year.

Aww! We hope it works out for the couple.

Screen Shot 2019 01 09 at 11.20.12 Marvel Actors And Their Real-Life Partners

Now click on the next page to find out which actor is desperately trying to keep his private life under wraps.

He’s definitely not as open about his love life as Idris.

[adunit mobile=”RTK_z9hm”]

Can you guess who we’re talking about?

12. Sebastian Stan

Perhaps the most cagey actor on this list when it comes to his personal life, the most any reporter has managed to tease from Stan on his relationships is “no comment”.

This juicy quote came about when Stan was asked about his situation with rumoured girlfriend Dianna Agron on a red carpet in 2011.

No comment doesn’t really give us a lot to analyse does it?

Screen Shot 2019 01 09 at 11.20.41 Marvel Actors And Their Real-Life Partners

Agron aside, Stan is also said to have dated two other famous faces over the years…

…Leighton Meester and Jennifer Morrison have both been linked to the Avengers actor.

[adunit mobile=”RTK_dVa8″]

Most recently, he was linked to Margarita Levieva (pictured below), though it’s not clear if they’re still together and Stan’s relationship status remains unknown.

We’ll just have to wait and see if Stan shows up on the red carpet with his lady love at any future Marvel premieres.

Screen Shot 2019 01 09 at 11.21.07 Marvel Actors And Their Real-Life Partners

In the meantime, we reveal which Marvel actor has the cutest romance of all time.

11. Anthony Mackie

Anthony Mackie and wife Sheletta Capital are both from Mackie’s home town of New Orleans.

[adunit mobile=”RTK_wCZW”]

And they may have only just got married three years ago, but the pair have been together much, much longer than that.

According to Mackie, he and Capital first met and fell in love when he changed schools aged seven. Wow! That’s a true lifetime romance right there.

Screen Shot 2019 01 09 at 11.21.42 Marvel Actors And Their Real-Life Partners

Mackie once revealed in an interview:

“I walk in and I looked and I see this little girl with these ratty pigtails and skinny legs, and I was like ‘WOW!'”

[adunit mobile=”RTK_z9hm”]

The couple have three children together and are still going strong after meeting in primary school all those years ago.

That’s a rare thing in Hollywood!

Screen Shot 2019 01 09 at 11.22.04 Marvel Actors And Their Real-Life Partners

Cute! Congratulations to them for staying together so long.

In fact, there’s another Marvel actor out there with a very similar story – click on the next page to find out who.

Can you guess who we’re talking about?

10. Don Cheadle

Like Anthony Mackie, Don Cheadle married only recently but has been with his partner for much longer.

[adunit mobile=”RTK_dVa8″]

Cheadle and wife Bridgid Coulter have two children together and have been an item since 1992. They only tied the knot in 2016, but that hadn’t stopped Cheadle from already referring to Coulter as his wife for years.

Screen Shot 2019 01 09 at 11.22.26 Marvel Actors And Their Real-Life Partners

The love birds first met on the set of Rosewood in the early 90s and quickly hit things off.

Apparently they first spoke to each other in a parking lot at the Beverley Center in LA and soon started dating.

Not exactly the most romantic setting in the world but still!

In a refreshing change for Hollywood partnerships, the happy couple have endured a lasting romance free of scandal and tabloid scrutiny – good for them!

Screen Shot 2019 01 09 at 11.22.49 Marvel Actors And Their Real-Life Partners

And it seems as though Cheadle isn’t the only Marvel actor to have a relatively stress-free private life.

[adunit mobile=”RTK_wCZW”]

Click on the next page below to find out which actor is happily married to a French actress.

Do you know who we’re talking about?

9. Mark Ruffalo

Though he plays the destructive Hulk for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Mark Ruffalo has more often played the decent, laidback guy in his movies.

And it seems he conforms to that stereotype in his romantic life too.

Details on Ruffalo’s dating life are scant prior to this century, throughout which he’s been happily settled down.

We wish we were happily settled down *sobs uncontrollably*

Screen Shot 2019 01 09 at 11.28.41 Marvel Actors And Their Real-Life Partners

Ruffalo has since 2000 been married to the spectacularly-named French-American actress Sunrise Coigney.

[adunit mobile=”RTK_z9hm”]

Together the happily married couple have three children, born between 2001 and 2007.

They all have spectacular names of their own: Keen (born 2001), Bella Noche (2005) and Odette (2007).

Screen Shot 2019 01 09 at 11.29.05 Marvel Actors And Their Real-Life Partners

Ruffalo might have had a smooth time of things in the love department, but some of his Marvel co-stars are under a lot more scrutiny.

8. Tom Holland

He’s only 22, and only newly famous, so no one would blame you for assuming Spider-Man actor Tom Holland probably hasn’t got the most exciting dating history.

[adunit mobile=”RTK_dVa8″]

Holland would prefer it if you thought that way.

He’s been cautious about giving much of his personal life away to the tabloids – but that hasn’t stopped media speculation that Holland has actually been dating a Marvel co-star.

Screen Shot 2019 01 09 at 11.29.26 Marvel Actors And Their Real-Life Partners

For months it’s been rumoured that Holland and Spider-Man: Homecoming actress Zendaya are an item.

In fact, this was recently confirmed by a family friend of Zendaya’s on Twitter despite neither actor coming out to confirm the claims.

The pair have been spotted out and about together in LA but nothing has been officially confirmed by either actor.

Screen Shot 2019 01 09 at 11.29.46 Marvel Actors And Their Real-Life Partners

So at the moment there’s still a question mark over them and Holland may well be a single man.

[adunit mobile=”RTK_wCZW”]

Click on the next page to find out one slightly-older actor who has a colourful love life, to say the least.

7. Dave Bautista

If rumours are correct, then following the James Gunn firing controversy, Dave Bautista might not be a Marvel actor for much longer.

Which would be a loss to posts like this considering how interesting Bautista’s love life has been.

Married three times, Bautista was a father at 21 – his two children Keilani and Athena were born in 1990 and 1992 to his first wife, Glenda – and had already become a grandfather, to Keilani’s two twin boys, before the age of 40.

Screen Shot 2019 01 09 at 11.30.08 Marvel Actors And Their Real-Life Partners

Today, Bautista is married to professional pole dancer Sarah Jade, winner of the title of Miss Pole Dance America in 2016.

He stoked some controversy by talking candidly about his relationship with first wife Angie in his autobiography.

[adunit mobile=”RTK_z9hm”]

However, the actor recently revealed that the former couple have made up:

“[We] have really become close again, which we really haven’t been in years. I really learned a lot about her, and she learned a lot about me from reading the book.”

Screen Shot 2019 01 09 at 11.30.30 Marvel Actors And Their Real-Life Partners

Bautista isn’t the only Marvel actor to experience some public drama when it comes to his love life.

Across the pond, one British actor has struggled with a painful divorce in the limelight.

6. Martin Freeman

Martin Freeman is only a recent addition to the Marvel fray and he really isn’t someone you’d typically see as the subject of gossip columns.

[adunit mobile=”RTK_dVa8″]

Recently, however, his personal life has come under a good deal of scrutiny.

This is because Freeman and Amanda Abbington, actress mother of Freeman’s two children and Freeman’s partner of 16 years, split in 2016 with talk that Freeman might have cheated.

It’s not currently known what Freeman’s relationship status is, though he has been spotted out and about with a ‘female friend’ of late.

Meanwhile Abbington revealed that the split was absolutely heartbreaking and she still struggles to get over the end of her relationship with Freeman: “It was one of the darkest moments of my life but, although I didn’t know it then, it was also to mark the beginning of an extraordinary journey of self-discovery.

“It’s still hard. I still have massive wobbles but that’s understandable, I think.”

4. Chiwetel Ejiofor

Before he was Doctor Strange’s Baron Mordo, Chiwetel Ejiofor long managed to keep his personal life and his public life separate.

“The whole family, including Benicio, was at the hospital and my mom and Benicio were in the delivery room with me. Benicio’s very involved; he and Delilah have a very special bond. She definitely looks like her dad, but she has my legs and eye colour.”
