8 Hollywood couples who had years-long engagements

They were in no particular rush to tie the knot – some still aren’t!


1. Oprah Winfrey & Stedman Graham

This list couldn’t start with any other couple than Oprah Winfrey and Stedman Graham – officially the longest engagement in Hollywood. The pair got engaged in 1993 but couldn’t settle on a wedding date due their respective busy schedules, and remained that way ever since. 25 years later, and counting, the couple are still engaged.

2. Miley Cyrus & Liam Hemsworth

It hasn’t been the smoothest ride for this pair, but despite it all, they’re still going strong this far. Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth got engaged in 2012 but called it quits a year later, rekindled their romance in 2016 and got engaged once again. The couple have no immediate plans to marry though – so excluding the year they spent apart, they’ve been engaged for three years and counting.

5. Amy Adams & Darren Le Gallo

This couple waited seven years to tie the knot after getting engaged in 2008. Amy Adams and Darren Le Gallo were in no rush to head down the aisle, as the actress herself stated, and got married in 2015 in California. In an interview with The Times, Amy said she feels “a stronger sense of family, a bigger sense of permanence” since tying the knot.
