PHOEBE CATES AND KEVIN KLINE – 36 YEARS
Fast Times at Ridgemont High’s Phoebe Cates had only briefly met Kevin Kline (from Sophie’s Choice), when she auditioned for 1983’s The Big Chill. She may not have gotten that part, but she did manage to get the hunky actor smitten. They met again after two years and he decided to hire her former assistant to she could set up a date between them!
In 1989, 25 year old Cates donned a white wedding dress and married 41 year old Kline in New York. They went on to have two wonderful kids, son Owen and daughter Greta, and Cates decided to become a stay-at-home mom taking up responsibilities of both child care and home care. Now that both the kids are in their mid-20s, done with college and university and have moved out, the couple gets to spend more time with each other.
