Rosie O'Donnell has been gushing about her fiancee Michelle Rounds, and about how lucky she is to be marrying the New York City headhunter. She told reporters at the National Board of Review Awards Gala in New York City on January 10 that her bride-to-be is "literally perfection."
The talk show host said she knew Rounds was "the one," within a week after they met, and remarked, "I'm not a Barbie. She has Mattel stamped on her ass."
The couple will marry this spring, with the 49-year-old's four children with ex-Kelli Carpenter taking part in the ceremony.
While their pairing may seem a little mismatched, at least on the outside, they're one of many slightly odd Hollywood couples.
The beautiful actress Christina Hendricks, known for her fiery red locks and ample bosom, married actor Geoffrey Arend in October 2009. The incredibly alluring 36-year-old was named one of People magazine's most beautiful redheads in 2008. Arend , on the other hand, is known more for being the "nerdy best friend."
We think he must have an amazing personality to have snagged the stunning "Mad Men" star.
There have been many stranger-than-strange looking relationships in Hollywood. Do you remember when Julia Roberts married country singer Lyle Lovett? Their marriage lasted less than two years, and it was the talk of Tinsel Town during the early 1990s. The gorgeous actress was known for her many short lived relationships, but fortunately she seems to have found true love with her current husband Danny Moder. The couple will celebrate their tenth anniversary this coming Fourth of July.
Another odd coupling was that of Angelina Jolie and Billy Bob Thornton . Their marriage seemed doomed from the start, with the sexy actress two decades younger than the not-so-attractive actor. To add to the strangeness of the whole thing they both wore vials of each other's blood around their necks. They divorced after three years of wedded "bliss."
The award for the most bizarre couple, however, we believe, should go to Woody Allen , who married the adopted daughter of his long-time partner Mia Farrow, Soon-Yi Previn. They began their relationship while the famed director was still with Farrow, and she was made aware of the affair after discovering nude photos of her daughter in Allen's Manhattan dwelling. Ew. The 76-year-old is still married to Previn, who is 35 years his junior.
After that, maybe O'Donnell and Rounds don't seem so strange after all.
