Steven Spielberg and Kate Capshaw

When Capshaw was cast as Willie Indiana Jones: The Temple of Doom, Spielberg was still married to his first wife Amy Irving. They still grew close on the set and after the director divorced Irving in 1989 (and paid out a whopping $100 million settlement), she converted to Judaism and married him two years later. The couple has been together ever since.
