There was time not long ago when seeing an interracial couple would have turned heads and caused an uproar. With the help of shows like Star Trek and films like Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner, we have advanced past this horrible era. Now seeing a mixed race couple is as normal as the night and day. Today some of the hottest couples in Hollywood are of the mixed race persuasion. Don’t know who we’re talking about, well you soon will.
Kim Kardashian and Kayne West
One of the hottest and most talked about couples in Hollywood today is no doubt the mix of Kanye West and Kim Kardashian. He is most known for his contributions in the world of music, while is best known for her contributions to…… being a socialite with a reality show. Kayne was never shy about being crazy about Kim. He was openly obsessed by her and when the two hit it off his little Kanye dreams came true. They now have two children and can be frequently viewed on your television.
Halle Berry and Oliver Martinez
Halle Berry was probably one of the most beautiful actresses during her time. We remember her well in movies like Die Another Day and Catwomen. She even won an oscar for best actress at one point and was even the first African American women to ever do so. She was at the top of Hollywood. In 2010 she scored with the French actor Oliver Martinez and became one of Hollywood’s hottest interracial couples. Unfortunately it didn’t last but it was nice for about five years.
Adam Housley and Tamera Mowry

The two began dating back when they were both still in high school and they even got married back in 1994. This has been going on for a long time. Unfortunately the couple went their separate ways in after twenty years of marriage in 2014. Despite this, Cuba has been keeping active and I’m sure he’ll find another girl fairly soon.
Chrissy Teigen and John Legend
Everyone knows John Legend for his success in the music industry and if not for that success we can pretty much guarantee he would have never met his beautiful wife Chrissy Teigen. They actually met on the set of one of his music videos. It was pretty much love at first sight. He later married her in Italy and they ended up having a child together. The future is no doubt looking bright for this happy couple.
Randy Jackson and Erica Jackson
Most will associate Randy Jackson as the nice judge on American Idol. He usually approached even the worse singers with a dose of positivity.

They even have a set of beautiful children together. Unfortunately the recently divorced as well.
FKA Twigs and Robert Pattinson

He of course is white and she is of a Jamaican and English background.

In fact the two have already started a family together. That’s right, they had their first child together back in 2014. How the time flies.

Although the ride has been beyond bumpy, this couple has still managed to cling to each other and see things through. The two met back in 2001 when Kobe and the rest of the Los Angeles Lakers were on top of the world. Yet, this didn’t stop from things taking a bumpy ride. Kobe’s parents were very against him dating a woman outside of his race and they even refused to show up to the wedding. This didn’t stop them though and they tied the knot anyway.

Chris Noth and Tara Wilson
You’ll best remember Chris Noth as Mr. Big in Sex and The City. Mr. Big was a straight shooter. Far from what anyone would call romantic or charming. In real life Chris Noth is the exact opposite of the character he played. He dated his wife Tara Wilson for ten years before they got married. She is half-black and half-asian. The two have since produced a very beautiful son together.
Tina Turner and Erwin Bach
Tina Turner is the popular pop/soul singer who has been popping out hits for the past fifty years. We all remember her hit from the 1980’s, What’s Love Got To Do With It.

The story wraps up like something out of a fairytale.

David Bowie was one of the world’s most recognized rockstars, until he died in 2016. The pair was married for twenty four years before fate had to split them. He had stated time again that he had never felt a deeper passion in his life then the one he felt for his Somalian beauty, Iman.
Sidney Poitier and Joanna Shimkus
If any actor from Hollywood’s golden age was going to be in an interracial relationship, it would be Sidney Poitier. Back when Hollywood was still against interracial couples on the screen. Sidney Poitier rose up in Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner and portrayed one half of the first interracial couple to ever grace the screen. 37 years ago when these kinds of relationships weren’t as common, he jumped into one with Joanna Shimkus, and the two have been together ever since.
Wesley Snipes and Nakyung Park
Wesley Snipes is perhaps most famous today for his work in the Blade series and for his tax issues. Yet there was one movie called Jungle Fever where he played a black man in New York who was in love with a woman not of his race. It seems to have predicted what would happen to him in real life when he met Nakyung Park. She herself was an artist, but no actor. She’s a painter.
Michael Jordan and Yvette Prieto
If you ask anyone who the world’s great basketball player of all time is, they’ll no doubt give that title to Michael Jordan. He stole the show throughout the whole 1990’s and won the Chicago Bulls several NBA championships. As of today he is married to the stunning Cuban model, Yvette Prieto. Before they tied the knot they were dating for four years. It looks like Jordan is winning in many aspects of life.
