Sam Elliott perennially plays the mustachioed good guy, the fella who doles out advice with a drawl and a twinkle in his eye. He's someone who the audience can rely on and who seems to know a little more than everyone else in the movie. Well, it turns out that he's like that in real life... at least when it comes to love.

Elliot and Ross married in 1984, making them one of the strongest love stories in Hollywood. No matter who Elliott plays or who he's smooching on screen, he always comes back to Ross at the end of the day.

The couple actually met on the set of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, a movie in which Ross was the star and Elliott was a day player. And by "met" we mean that Elliott was too nervous to speak to her. They didn't actually start dating until 1978 when they appeared in The Legacy together. The couple bonded during the film and they've been with one another ever since.

"We Are The World" is one of the most significant songs of the 1980s, not just because it helped send aid to Africa, but it brought together some of the biggest names in music all in support of doing something good with their star power.

Featuring Diana Ross, Quincy Jones, Michael Jackson, Bob Dylan, and Bruce Springsteen (among dozens of other huge names), the recording of the song got off to a rocky start, but thankfully Diana Ross knew how to get everyone in the mood to sing together. A producer of the track remembers:

When I passed out the music, we put a dummy track on. We were listening to it, getting the feel of it, and while they were rewinding the tape, Diana went over to Darryl Hall and said, ‘Can you sign my music? I’m your biggest fan.’ And as soon as she said that, we all looked at each other and said, ‘Oh my God. Look at who is here.’ We all went around to each other for the next hour-and-a half, signing each other’s music. By the time that was over, we were a family. There was a feeling of love. It was beautiful.
