We’re not the only ones who are keen on Brits, with plenty of Hollywood American A-listers coupled up with British celebs. It’s not surprising that these British and American actors met, fancied each other and became items … but sometimes we come across one of these hybrid couples and think, “Wait, when did this happen?” or “Oh yeah! That’s right. They’re married. To each other.”
Check out nine of our favorite British/American celebrity mashups below:
Michael Sheen and Sarah Silverman
Apparently Liz Lemon’s “Future Husband”, aka Wesley Snipes, aka Michael Sheen (Twilight) has been deemed the “undercover Hollywood heartthrob.” After a two-year relationship with starlet Rachel McAdams (About Time) coming to an end last year, he’s recently been spotted around town with a smitten Sarah Silverman (Louie).
Hugh Dancy and Claire Danes
Cara Delevingne and Michelle Rodriguez
Emily Blunt and John Krasinski
Christopher Guest and Jamie Lee Curtis
This Is Spinal Tap‘s Lord Christopher Haden-Guest, born in the U.S., has dual citizenship in the U.S. and U.K. He and Jamie Lee Curtis, who recently starred in Fox’s New Girl, have been married since 1984 and have two children together.
Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone
The Amazing Spider-Man‘s Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone are on and off screen love interests, constantly seen at each other’s sides. The Spider-Man co-stars surprised Saturday Night Live guests when Stone unexpectedly showed up during Garfield’s hosting gig for an amazingly awkward smooch session as seen here.
Nicholas Hoult and Jennifer Lawrence
These two have been on-again and off-again for a few years now, but made it officially “on-again” in 2013. Lawrence discusses their long-distance relationship saying to People magazine, “We can go out and have our own lives and know that we have each other.” The couple is seen goofing around with X-Men co-star Peter Dinklange, left (not center).
Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas
There aren’t many roles for Catherine Zeta-Jones (Chicago) to use her native Welsh accent in films, with audiences possibly forgetting she’s a Brit. Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas (Behind the Candelabra) have been married since 2000.
Amal Alamuddin and George Clooney

Who knew George Clooney (Gravity) was such the Anglophile? While his British human rights lawyer fiancée may not be a household name just yet, she will be soon enough.
