7 Female Celebrities Who Are Surprisingly Unmarried

There are some women in Hollywood who have expressed an interest in getting married or who just seem like the marrying kind. These ladies should be happily married by now, but they aren’t. This really surprises us. Some of these women have been talking about marriage for years. We guess this means that not everyone gets a happily ever after. Some superstars just can’t have it all. We have a list of 7 female celebrities who are currently unmarried, but who obviously wanted to get married. Some are divorcees while others just haven’t found the one. Either way, we really expected them to be married or remarried at this point.

7. Sandra Bullock

It is hard not to love Sandra Bullock. She seems sweet, down-to-earth and just oh so lovely. She’s dated a number of Hollywood’s most eligible bachelors, including Tate Donovan, Matthew McConaughey and Ryan Gosling. She was actually engaged to Donovan during the mid 90s, but they never made it down the aisle. Years later, she ended up marrying a total odd ball, Jesse James, who cheated on her multiple times with multiple women. Since their divorce, she hasn’t really dated – at least to our knowledge.

We’re actually shocked that she hasn’t settled down again. It has been about five years since James’ affairs came to light and she dumped him. We really thought she would have settled down again. There are plenty of guys in the world who aren’t total scumbags like her ex. We think she’s way too good a catch to just never date or get married again. She just needs to not marry anyone like James again.

6. Diane Keaton

Diane Keaton had romances with some of Hollywood’s most desirable bachelors, including Warren Beatty, Jack Nicholson and Al Pacino; however, she wasn’t able to get any of them to settle down. According to her, she wanted to get married, but she wasn’t practical. “I had some insane idea that I had to be ‘in love.’ Now I see what it really takes: real consideration that you’re a good team together,” she told People magazine. She says that she is still open to finding lasting love, but she has trouble putting herself out there.

It sounds like Keaton was just dating the wrong men. None of these guys were the settling down type and long-term relationships with anyone of them would probably have ended in more disappointment. We’re really surprised that she didn’t find anyone to marry. She had talents and looks during her heyday (heck, she still does!), so why didn’t she attract someone more appropriate?

5. Katie Holmes

Katie Holmes seems like she would be the perfect wife. She put up with Tom Cruise for seven years, which makes her deserving of some kind of award. Those two never made sense. He was in his early 40s when they started dating and she was in her mid 20s. She had just ended a long-term engagement with Chris Klein, so we’re assuming that she was kind of vulnerable at the time. Cruise swooped in, swept her off of her feet and the two were engaged in two months flat and expecting their first child together. It just never made sense. We expected her to go for someone closer to her age who wasn’t a huge superstar and was more stable.

Holmes and Cruise have been divorced for almost three years and we haven’t even seen her date anyone, which is a bit weird since she seems like the settling down type. Did her former hubby scar her for life? We expected her to be remarried by now to someone who is more in sync with her and her Midwestern values.

4. Denise Richards

When it comes to men, Denise Richards has made a few big mistakes, the biggest one biggest one being Charlie Sheen. We’re not sure how these two actually made it down the aisle – they are just so different. She comes off as really maternal, responsible and levelheaded while he seems incredibly unstable and unpredictable. Since these two split, she has gone on to adopt another daughter; however, she has not found lasting love. We’re a bit shocked. If she can consistently stand by her crazy ex, she should be able to handle a drama-free relationship with a mature and stable man.

According to the mother of three, she would like to get married again in the future. “I have a U-Haul of baggage,” she told HuffPost Live. “It is going to take a very strong man to step into my life.” We really thought she’d be remarried by now. It has been years since she split with Sheen.

3. Jennifer Lopez

Jennifer Lopez is happiest when she’s in love, which explains why she is almost always in a relationship. When one ends, she is quick to jump into another. “I always found my comfort in another person,” she told People magazine. “Instead of giving myself time to heal and be on my own, I was so afraid to be that I was always like, ‘Okay somebody else just come in here and help me forget I’m in so much pain.’”

The “Booty” singer is trying to get over her fear of being staying single. She is still hoping for a happy ending though. “I still believe in the fairy tale,” she said. “The more I work on myself, the more I give myself the opportunity to share a really deep and meaningful relationship that can give me my fairy tale and last forever.” We’re shocked that she has taken the time to do this. She usually jumps into another relationship without mourning the lost of the previous one.

2. Paris Hilton

Paris Hilton has been itching to get married since she was in her early 20s when she was engaged to model Jason Shaw. She has had a steady string of boyfriends since then, including one other broken engagement, this time to Greek shipping heir Paris Latsis. With almost every person she dates, the socialite talks marriage. When she was dating Madden for several months back in 2008, they talked marriage. With Cy Waits, she also talked marriage and babies and they were together for just over a year.

Most surprisingly, Hilton was actually interested in marrying her former boy toy River Viiperi, who was 11 years her junior. “I think that’s every woman’s dream,” she said on “The Wendy Williams Show.” “I think that’s the meaning of life to have children and have a family one day.” The former reality star obviously really wants to get married and have children and we’re really surprised that she hasn’t settled down already.

1. Rachel McAdams

Rachel McAdams seems like the settling down type; however, she has never married any of her loves. She dated Ryan Gosling for a few years and things seemed like they were heading towards marriage and children; however, they weren’t able to make their relationship work. She was also in a really serious relationship with Michael Sheen, but they broke up after a few years of dating.

Rumor has it that McAdams’ relationship ended with Sheen because he wasn’t interested in marriage or a family and she was. He already has one child with Kate Beckinsale. He dated her for eight years, but wasn’t interested in making her his wife either. Something tells us that there is some truth to these rumors. McAdams probably does want marriage and a family. We’re kind of shocked that she hasn’t made that a priority. Time is slowly running out and she hasn’t had a serious relationship since Sheen.
