9 Celebrity Couples Who Prove Opposites Attract
7. Alexis Ohanian and Serena Williams
New parents Alexis Ohanian and Serena Williams are the definition of opposites. Prior to dating one of the most successful tennis players in history, the Reddit co-founder had never even watched a match! “I’ve never picked up a racket,” he said during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live. “I was so ignorant that when we first met, I had never even watched a match on television. Like, I would change the channel. I was such an arrogant football snob, that I changed the channel when tennis was on.” Of course, he’s now his fiance’s biggest fan, but that doesn’t mean he has any interest in learning how to play. He said he turned down lessons from her. “I wanted to be the only person in the world who had ever turned down Serena Williams for tennis lessons, and because I knew there was just not benefit to her seeing me being that bad at tennis,” he joked.
6. Swizz Beatz and Alicia Keys
Alicia Keys is not afraid to admit that she was totally not into her now-husband, Swizz Beatz when they first met. In an interview with Marie Claire U.K. she said: “Honestly, I didn’t really like him that much. I thought he was too ostentatious.” For some girls it might this might have been a turn on, but for Alicia, she was turned off by his flashy style. “Swizz will have the fastest car, the biggest jewelry, the loudest jacket; everything with him is really over the top. I used to see him and think, ‘He is so annoying,'” she said. Now they’ve been married for over seven years and share two sons together, Egypt, 7, and Genesis, 2. “I think we’ve taught each other a lot. He’s taught me to live more fully and I think I’ve taught him to live more deeply.”
