Not only do our favourite Hollywood stars share their problems, but also what lessons they have learnt along the way. We have gathered the best relationship advice from our favourite celebs.
Don’t be fooled by the rock she’s got, she’s still Jenny from the Block. And she has some amazing advice to share!
“Until you learn to love yourself, you can’t completely love someone else in a way that is pure and true. Once you do that, you can have relationships that are based on love and respect, that are supportive and nourishing. There’s an evolution there that had to happen for me.”
Meryl Streep and Don Gummer have been married since 1978 and they know that conversation is key!
“You have to talk about all the issues that arise, even the smallest things. You have to listen to your partner’s problems, suggestions and advice, and accept that you’re not always right. Conversation is the key to a successful marriage.”
Kim and Kayne are constantly in the public eye, but they are besties no matter what.
“I have this best friend who understands me and helps me through all my tough experiences, and vice versa, you know? It just feels like this is it for me. I used to think, ‘Well, can you really have it all?’ The truth, the excitement, and the passion? Now I know you can.”
The Fresh Prince and wife Jada know that marriage is about working on yourself to better your relationship.
“If there is a secret to marriage, I would say it is that we never went into working on our relationship. We only ever worked on ourselves individually. And then presented ourselves to one another better than we were previously.”
The sass queen herself has been very honest about how she maintains such a strong relationship with husband John Legend.
“I think it’s really important to be complete partners in crime. I love the mentality of ‘us against the world.’ Even when you have kids, never forget your relationship as partners and lovers — that’s so important.”
Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard have been through their ups and downs, but know what’s important.
“Life is a crazy ride. It’s a privilege to go through it with a partner. Take necessary separateness. It will make your marriage better. Loving someone despite their faults, failings, or other character defects is the most powerful loving thing you can do. Rejoice in what makes the other person happy, and allow them their individual interests. Know that everyone is doing the best they can with what they’ve got”
Reese knows that marriage is all about give and take, and finding ways to be happy.
“I want so much for him to be happy, and he wants me to be happy. That’s a big part of my day, thinking, ‘Is he happy?’ And for him, ‘Is she happy?'”
She may be newly single, but Lady Gaga still has plenty of advice she has gathered from her past relationships.
“If you’re laying in bed next to someone who really doesn’t make you feel like the goddess that you are, you need to rediscover what it is that you truly want and need.”
Emily Blunt and John Krasinski are nothing short of #couplegoals!
“If you are in a relationship, you have to talk to each other and you have to be forever generous… The best relationships that I have seen of my friends, and hopefully that I am in, is that you can’t clip each other’s wings. You have to really empower the other one to be everything they can be,”
Alicia Keys and husband Swizz Beatz keep the romance alive with surprise dates!
“One of us plans a date and the other has no idea where we are going. We’ve found some undiscovered gems and moments to take hikes or walks or just discover new things about life and each other. Those are my favourite times.”
Sarah Jessica Parker
Naturally we are going to need some advice from Carrie Bradshaw!
“We really are friends beyond everything else and we talk a lot. Keep talking I guess, I know how cliché that is. Too much silence is definitely not a good idea.”
Catherine Zeta Jones
The actress says that the key to her marriage with Michael Douglas is never giving up.
“It’s a long road and I think people today are so quick to throw in the towel on marriage. You have to give it your best shot and not give up when the first problem arises, because that won’t be the last problem. There will be many more down the road.”
Newlyweds Joe Manganiello and Sofia Vergara know the secret to love.
“We realised very early on that we each had to put the other person’s happiness and wellbeing ahead of our own. Once you realise that kind of trust has manifested, you hang on for dear life. Or in my case, you go and buy a ring.”
