Ahh…love in Hollywood. Seems like a topic that’s been overdone in SO many things, and yet, people just can’t stop talking about it. Many find it difficult to link celebrities and long-term relationships. In all fairness, it is completely understandable, since it seems so natural that love is quite short-lived, as far as the rich and famous are concerned. However, there are a number of stars who stand out from the rest, and they might just show us something about true love that we can all learn for ourselves.
