Don't want to get married ... ever? If that's the case, you're in good company.
, Miranda Lambert
and Lily Allen
are just some of the brides getting ready to walk down the aisle this year. And we can't forget about the highly anticipated royal wedding on April 29
But even though 2011 will bring lots of high-profile weddings, there are a number of red carpet A-listers who don't think they'll ever walk down the aisle -- for the first time or again. Take, for instance, Diane Kruger
. The "Inglorious Basterds" actress has been dating "Fringe" star Joshua Jackson
, but Kruger, who was once married to French actor Guillaume Canet
for five years, has no plans to get hitched.
"Without sounding pessimistic, I learned that I don't believe in marriage," she told Glamour.
She's not alone. Find out which nine celebs won't be tying the knot.
Named People's Sexiest Man Alive twice, there's no doubt that George Clooney
is easy on the eyes. Known for being a ladies' man, Clooney was married to Talia Balsam for four years before splitting in 1993. Since then, he's vowed not to marry again, telling Piers Morgan
that he already gave marriage a shot. Let's hope his current squeeze, Italian model and actress Elisabetta Canalis
, is OK with keeping things that way.
Actors Goldie Hawn
and Kurt Russell
have been together for the last 27 years, and it doesn't look like the two will get themselves to a chapel. Before Russell, Hawn was married twice -- first to dancer-turned-director Gus Trikonis
, then musician Bill Hudson
(father of Kate Hudson). And since her relationship with Russell has outlasted both marriages, why would she want change something that's going well, right? Hawn explained it best in a 2008 BBC interview
, "I wake up every day knowing I can walk out at any moment. It's [that knowledge] that keeps things fresh."
"Mad Men" star Jon Hamm
has been with his girlfriend, actress Jennifer Westfeldt
, since the two met in 1991. And although the two always look happy on the red carpet, Hamm admitted to Parade that he is just not the marrying type. "I don't have the marriage chip, and neither of us have the greatest examples of marriages in our families," he said in the July 2010 interview
. "But Jen is the love of my life, and we've already been together four times longer than my parents were married."
While other women dream of the day they get their two kids, white picket fence and dreamy husband, "The Other Guys" actress Eva Mendes
doesn't think it's her thing. Not only does she think it's boring but she isn't sure if she wants to be a mother. "I have to be honest. And no disrespect, because I think marriage is a beautiful institution," she said in an interview
. "I am extremely romantic but I think there is that little rebel inside me that is anti-establishment. It's just one more fun thing I can rebel against." She also added that she loves going to other people's weddings and dances her booty off but doesn't "ever want to be the actual person getting married."
Kylie Minogue has no problem heating up stages all over the world with her dance-pop music. However the 42-year-old Aussie hasn't really been too lucky in love. Although she's been with the younger Spanish model Andres Veloncoso
for more than two years, she just doesn't think marriage is in the cards for her. "Maybe it's a path I'll never go down," said the platinum-selling singer. "All I know is you can do worse than expect the unexpected," she told U.K. Elle
. "I'm in a very happy, romantic place. I thought those days were gone but I'm just doing what I feel."
might have just about anything a woman can ask for except for two things: a child and a wedding band. She's already said she wouldn't have children
, but what about her status with longtime boyfriend Stedman Graham
? Well, they're still together but will probably never say "I do." In an interview with Larry King
in 2001, Oprah said that she was more concerned about being "wanted enough to be married" but not necessarily tying the knot.
After being married to baseball player David Justice
and R&B singer Eric Benet
, Oscar-winner Halle Berry
is done with marriage. While she was still dating Gabriel Aubry
, the father of Berry's daughter 2-year-old Nahla, she told the press that she already felt like she was married. "I have a good healthy love for myself and love in my life," she said
. "I no longer feel the need to be someone's wife and I don't need the validation of a marriage certificate." Good thing, because she and Aubry called it quits soon after.
If there's one quality that many people like to list on their must-haves for a partner, it would be someone who can make you laugh. So when Jim Carrey
and Jenny McCarthy
got together, it seemed like a match made in heaven, but one that would never make it to the altar. Both Carrey, who's already been married twice, and McCarthy, who was hitched once, have said that while they loved each other, marriage was just not for them
. Unfortunately, the couple split in 2010. Currently, Carrey is rumored to be dating "America's Next Top Model" alum Anchal Joseph
has had her share of big-time leading men, like Woody Allen
, Warren Beatty
and Al Pacino
. However, the 65-year-old actress never walked down the aisle. She didn't think she was "really marriage material"
and had a hard time compromising due to her budding career. And with two adopted sons, she feels marriage is now out of the question. "I remember when I was young I honestly believed in some ridiculous way that you would find someone who would be the person you lived with until you died. I don't think that because I'm not married it's made my life any less. That old-maid myth is garbage," she said in an interview
