Despite a more accepting attitude these days towards interracial relationships, it seems that BWWM couples in popular culture are still something of a rarity. They may be popular in books, but you don’t see any many in mainstream media.
That said, there are some black women and white men who have gotten together, whether or not it ended up being a life long partnership! Below are 13 black women white men couples who have hooked up with cuter than cute results! Some of the pairings may surprise you.
BWWM Couple: Matt Stone and Angela Howard
Matt Stone famously created the comedy series South Park, which started Comedy Central on its way to being the popular television network it is today, and his bromance with co-creator Trey Parker is probably his most well-publicised relationship.
But Matt is married to Angela Howard, an executive producer at Comedy Central (so a heavy-hitter in her own right) in 2008 and they’ve been together since. They also have two children together.
Celebrity BWWM Couple Robin Thicke and Paula Patton
Robin Thicke may have some controversial music videos, but he certainly did the right thing when he got together with Paula Patton – at age 14.
That’s right, until they split in 2014, Thicke and Patton were together for over a decade after being adorable high school sweethearts.
They were married and had a child together, and after they initially broke up Thicke made some very public attempts to win her back – but unfortunately the divorce stuck.
Michael Fassbender and Nicole Beharie – Previous White Men Black Women Lovebirds
These two lovebirds have since split, but for a while after their steamy stint in the 2011 flick ‘Shame’, the on-screen couple of Michael Fassbender and Sleepy Hollow actress Nicole Beharie dated in real life. Apparently their chemistry during the film translated pretty well to real life, even if it was only for a short time.
George Lucas and Mellody Hobson
Star Wars creator George Lucas has been married to his wife Mellody Hobson since 2013, and they have a child (conceived via surrogacy) together. While George Lucas is one of the most well-known faces in Hollywood, Mellody is a pretty savvy businesswoman herself – holding a degree from Princeton as well as a seat on the Board of Directors for Dreamworks Animation Studios.
Together, the two donate millions of dollars to charities every year and make a handsome couple to boot.
Ol Parker and Thandie Newton
Ol Parker and Thandie Newton have been married since 1998, and in 2014 they welcomed a third child together (they have two daughters and a son) in 2014. Newton is a successful Hollywood actress who has starred in films like Crash and The Pursuit of Happyness, and Parker is a British director known for directing the popular romantic comedy Imagine Me And You.
