It’s a slow news week before the Labor Day holiday, which means: More seriously random lists! Like this one, wherein we endeavor (successfully or not) to blow your minds by informing you of industry couples you may not have known existed. Not included, because we’re assuming that most of you are old enough to know the marital history of Patricia Arquette, are her marriages to Nic Cage and Thomas Jane (pictured, above). Also, Guy Pearce and Game of Thrones’ Carice Van Houton are not married and recent enough that you probably already know (also, they have a child together now).

Jay Roach, the director of Austin Powers and Meet the Parents, is married to Susanna Hoffs, the lead singer of the ’80s band, The Bangles.


Will Arnett and Penelope Ann Miller were briefly married in 1994.


Victor Willis, the original lead singer of The Village People (he was the cop and/or naval officer) used to be married to Phylicia Ayers-Allen, better known as Claire Huxtable on the The Cosby Show.


Adrian Pasdar from Heroes was married to Natalie Maines, the lead singer of The Dixie Chicks, up until last year.


Before her marriage to Ethan Hawke, Uma Thurman was briefly married to Gary Oldman. To marry Thurman, Oldman actually left his wife Lesley Manville, who played Flittle (the blue one) in Maleficent.


Alan Ruck and Mireille Enos have been married for 11 years and have two children together.


Not only was James Cameron married to Linda Hamilton (Terminator) and Kathryn Bigelow (The Hurt Locker, Zero Dark Thirty) but before that, he was married to Gale Ann Hurd, who many know as the executive producer of The Walking Dead.


Before Olivia Wilde, Jason Sudeikis was married to Kay Cannon, the writer of Pitch Perfect (and a whole lot of New Girl and 30 Rock episodes), as well as the director of Blockers.


Mia Sara, who played Sloane Peterson in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, is married to Brian Henson, son of Jim (and before that, she was married to Sean Connery’s son).

Alexander Payne (Election, Sideways) was married to Sandra Oh for two years.


Bonus: Everyone probably knows this, but with the popularity of HBO’s Succession right now, I’ll add Keeley Hawes (Ashes to Ashes, Upstairs Downstairs, every British show, ever) and Matthew MacFadyen, because I love them.
