Famous Men Who Married Asian Women (Part 1 of 2)

If you spend a lot of time on our site, there’s a good chance that you recognize the immense beauty—both physical and cultural—of Asian women. So it probably won’t surprise you to know that some of the world’s most famous, successful and attractive men have been in romantic relationships with Asian women. Here’s a list of some of those couples.

George Clooney

In marrying Amal Alamuddin, Clooney pulled off the near-impossible: He married someone as successful as himself. She made tabloid headlines when she got engaged to The Cloon last year, but Amal, an extremely successful lawyer and activist born in Lebanon, has been on the radar of international power players for a long time. This is about as high-profile as a relationship can get.

Dave Chappelle

Despite being perhaps the most successful comedian of the 2000’s, Dave Chappelle is notorious for keeping an extremely low profile. So it’s no surprise, then, that his wife Elaine has stayed out of the spotlight. Dave and Elaine, a Filipina, have been married since 2001 and have three children together.

Wesley Snipes

An accomplished actor himself, Snipes married someone who’s also an artist. His wife, Nakyung Park (who often goes by Nikki), is a painter. The couple have four children together, the most recent born in 2007. Nikki is South Korean, and Wesley has fully embraced her culture—he calls South Korea his “second home.”
