“I’ll be the first to say, here on your show, marriage—before I felt this way about this issue—was never something that was important to me. I don’t know the exact reason for that. I really want for myself a long-term relationship,” she continues, “and I have been in long-term relationships…That’s the kind of union that I want. The actual ceremony is not something that is important to me—but I see the importance for other people.” – Piers Morgan Tonight, 2012
The Ellen Show, where she was asked whether her and Parenthood co-star and boyfriend, Peter Krause, would ever get married. “I don’t know. We are very happy as we are and I never have a good question for this answer,” she said. “I feel like close to five years in Hollywood, its like, aren’t we married already really? It’s good the way it is.” – The Ellen Show, 2014
“Without sounding pessimistic, I learned that I don’t believe in marriage. I believe in a commitment that you make in your heart. There’s no paper that will make you stay.” Glamour Magazine, 2011
2012, Chelsea Handler told More magazine, “I don’t know that I’m marriage material. I don’t know if I would ever want to be someone’s wife. It makes breaking up much more complicated.”
‘I don’t want to get married’; I was never one of those little girls. It is not that I wouldn’t, but I don’t see that I must do it or be unhappy. I don’t know if I’ll ever get married. I’m perfectly happy [with] my single self.”
In an appearance on Chelsea Lately in 2011, Eva Mendes said, “I actually think it’s really sexy to be with someone in your 50s and 60s and be like, ‘That’s my boyfriend.’ I think husband and wife is just . . . very unsexy.”
Marriage would be lower on my list,” adding, “I need to know I can step outside this room, I won’t, but I do need to know that mentally I have space and freedom. Others would want to know they had those strong foundations, but I’m just a different make-up I guess.”
