Celebrities Who Proved True Love Exists In Hollywood

Meryl Streep and Don Gummer

The Hollywood icon and award-winning sculptor Don Gummer and Meryl Streep have been together for 42 years. Meryl Streep once stated in an interview, “I found a great husband many years ago — I’m lucky.” In March 1978, Meryl Streep’s boyfriend (and Deer Hunter’s team-mate) John Cazale passed away from lung cancer. Devastated by the death of her partner, Streep turned to a friend of her brother, Gummer, for assistance. Meryl moved into Gummer’s apartment and started taking care like there was nobody else on earth. After six months, they got married in the garden of her parent’s home in September 1978. Today, Streep and Gummer are still doing fine, supporting each other in their careers. The couple have four children.
