Through the years,the entertainment industry has introduced us to numerous stars. They may have garnered fame through different means,such as landing acting credits in movies or producing hit chart-topping songs,but one thing’s for sure: these celebrities have since become quite successful in their own right. Even so,that doesn’t mean they’re all alone in their journey to stardom.
At this point,it’s safe to say just about every one of us has heard of the notion that no man is an island. Well,such is the case for these celebrities. Along with their millions of fans,other people worth noting are their families,friends,and,of course,significant others.

However,the actor has several films and TV shows to his name like Pushing Daisies and Guardians of the Galaxy. Off-screen,the actor prefers to keep his personal life out of the limelight,but his fellow actor,Sir Ian McKellen,outed him accidentally. The good news is that Pace did not take it as a slight. He did come out on his own but stated that he would rather talk about his work than his personal life.
This did not stop his fans from trying to find out more about his romantic life,however,and it seems that his social media account gave us a glimpse of his partner,Matthew Foley. His long-time partner works in Thom Browne and it is clear that these two are made for each other. To their credit,they certainly know how to keep everything under wraps but are willing to share some snippets of their lives together.

Sometime after,she then made her way to more on-screen roles,and because of that,Wanda is often recognized for starring in projects such as The Good Fight,The Upshaws,and Curb Your Enthusiasm.
When it comes to finding a date,though,Wanda doesn’t resort to the usual pick-up lines. Instead,she talks about remodeling her kitchen. As it turns out,that tactic worked. For more than a decade now,Wanda has been happily married to her wife,the interior designer Alex Sykes. While the couple prefers to live a low-key lifestyle,that hasn’t stopped them from posting a couple of photos on their respective Instagram pages,both of which contain stills from their travels and other day-to-day activities.
