Some Hollywood stars get our attention for living glamorous, larger-than-life lives.
Others, like Hollywood heartthrob Sam Elliott, have attracted attention for a completely different reason: proving to the world that true love does exist.
Elliott, 79, has been married to his beloved wife Katharine Ross for no less than three long decades.
Hollywood heartthrob Sam Elliott certainly has countless female fans around the world. But he has eyes for only one woman: his wife of three decades, Katharine Ross.
The two originally met on the set of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, where Ross had a leading part. Meanwhile, as Elliott told AARP, “I was just a shadow on the wall, a glorified extra in a bar scene.”
While it was love at first sight for Elliot after seeing Ross, he dared not act on his feelings. He saw himself as a “glorified extra” and Ross as a Hollywood star.
