Staying Power:


Maggie reportedly earned $500,000 for her role in 2006's World Trade Center, but that's hardly been her biggest film to date. Secretary (which earned her a Golden Globe nomination), Mona Lisa Smile and The Dark Knight have all been instrumental in building Maggie's reputation as a leading lady. Peter earned $750,000 for Flightplan in 2005, and he received a Golden Globe nod for Shattered Glass. Maggie has also signed some product endorsement deals, modeling for Agent Provocateur and Miu Miu. This couple has worked consistently and chosen interesting roles, but they don't have the big budget Hollywood blockbuster power of some other celebs on our list.

Maggie's looks have been much-debated in the media. Some find her unusual facial features to be interesting and alluring, but a quick Google search for "Maggie Gyllenhaal ugly" yields some 175,000 results of trash talk about her. Sarsgaard, on the other hand, was named one of's Sexiest Men Living in 2007. Chalk up a win for facial hair.

Last month, around 110,000 Internet users searched Google to read about Maggie and 15,000 about Peter. It may sound like a lot, but that number actually puts them in the bottom quarter of all our celebrity couples in the popularity category. Yikes.


Staying Power.
Gyllenhaal and Sarsgaard have been dating since 2002, and they have a two-year-old daughter named Ramona. They just recently tied the knot (see the video below for more details). Maggie's relationship past is clean, but Peter's shows signs of serial Hollywood dating: He's been linked to burlesque star Dita Von Teese and model Shalom Harlow.

She's a Scorpio and he's a Pisces, so this couple is destined for eternal happiness. The relationship is deep and complementary, like the matching double A's in their last names.
