Celebrity or not, being in a relationship requires some work.
Finding a happy balance between personal and professional life is a challenge, too, and it's even trickier for those in the public eye. Many Hollywood careers come with demanding schedules, and when your significant other's work is in a totally different part of the biz, date nights can become few and far between.
But don't lose hope! There are plenty of star couples out there proving it's possible to love across Hollywood lines. These musicians, actors, athletes, models and artists aren't pairing up in their immediate areas of expertise, but they're very much keeping the romance alive...starting with one of our favorite twosomes, John Legend and Chrissy Teigen.
The model, TV personality/host and cookbook author and her Grammy-winning musician hubby work in different parts of the industry, but they support each other at every turn. It's rare that we see John on a red carpet or at an awards show without his beloved wife, and we know from Chrissy's social media accounts and promotional appearances that the "All of Me" singer is her No. 1 fan.
Chrissy and John, who are the proud parents of a 6-month-old daughter named Luna, make it a point to put their relationship and family first. "I think a lot of it is because when you're in our position you're used to having everything you want right away and not having to compromise," John said in an interview with A Drink With. "I think some people don't want to put in the work during the hard times to make it work."
Chrissy and John, clearly, are willing to put in the work. "I mean, I can't even imagine ever not being with you now," she said in the A Drink With interview. "Right," John said, "I can't imagine my life without you either. I have reached the pinnacle of the perfect girl for me."
Swoon, right? Justin Timberlake is another Tinseltown fella who has said some pretty sweet things about his better half, Jessica Biel.

Justin and Jess are a bit of a Renaissance couple—he does music, movies and fashion while she keeps busy with movies, TV, pro-social initiatives and entrepreneurial pursuits like Au Fudge! There might not be much organic crossover in the A-list couple's career pursuits, but much like Chrissy and John, they're each other's biggest supporters.
The same can be said for Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban.

The actress and musician, who both hail from Australia, are willing to make geographical shifts in order to accommodate one another. Nashville is now their home base, which is convenient for Keith as a country singer, but they've relocated the family (they have two daughters: Faith and Sunday Rose) internationally in order to accommodate Nicole's career, too.
Just last year, for example, Nicole and the kids moved to London so she could participate in a play called Photograph 51. "From my daughters it was like, 'Yay, London, Winter Wonderland!' although there was also discussion of bringing our two cats over, which didn't eventually happen," Nicole said in an interview with The Evening Standard (as excerpted by Country Fancast). "My husband, I think, has made 15 trips over four months."
"That's commitment," she continued. "I owe him a big thank you. He said, 'Go!', and it was so beautiful, because we really don't get that involved in each other's work."

We can't forget about Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher! The country singer and her hubby, a professional ice hockey player, continuously make it a point to put their marriage, faith and 20-month-old son Isaiah first.
"You just have to make that your number one priority," Carrie explained to People magazine. "You see each other when you can and you talk to each other as much as you can...You just have to commit and make it work."
She also told People that she would quit her music career "if Mike ever told me he needed me to quit." Carrie clarified, however, that Mike isn't wanting her to hang up the mic anytime soon. Her hubby "completely supports me in [my career]," she said, "as I do him."
