Hollywood doesn’t have the best track record when it comes to everlasting love, but there’s always hope that our favorite celebrity unions will make it over the long haul. Supermodel Paulina Porizkova stopped by the studio to share what makes her marriage to The Cars’ lead singer Ric Ocasek so strong.
“I was 19 when I met him,” she says. “I’ve spend most of my life being married… it will be 29 years next week!”
So what are her secrets to longevity? Number one is pretty obvious, “find the right person to do it with,” something Ali almost got wrong. “I’ll tell you something personal,” Ali confessed. “I was once going to get married before I married my husband, and Paulina talked me out of it because she knew he wasn’t the right person.”
Couples also have to be willing to put in the effort. “Having your husband or wife be your priority is work,” she says, and most celebrity unions are so short because “famous people are narcissists. It’s all about you, you, you.”
So what celebrity couples got it right? “Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward,” she says. “Bravo, I’m trying to follow in your footsteps!”
What does she think about power couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie? Paulina’s not so sure. “I love them and want them to succeed, but I have to say I won’t be surprised if they don’t.”
To hear what Paulina thinks about other celeb couples and find out the surprising person she would sleep with if she had a “free pass,” watch this episode of Daily Shot.
