#1. Elizabeth Taylor
Elizabeth Taylor is famously known for having been married seven times. But only one of them was worthy enough of a proposal. The lovely Hollywood icon asked British actor Michael Wilding to marry her. He, of course, said yes, and the handsome couple got hitched in a low-key ceremony in 1952. They ended up having two sons, Michael Howard and Christopher Edward, before calling it quits in 1957. Rumor has it that Wilding had brought a few women into their home while she was shooting the movie, Giant. Ultimately, the couple divorced in good terms.
#2. Kristen Bell
It's hard to imagine Kristen Bell and Dax Sheppard not being totally crazy in love with each other. But once upon a time, the actor had some reservations about his wife. During an interview on the TV show Off Camera with Sam Jones, Sheppard said he wasn't sure about the couple's future. Eventually, the couple grew stronger, but instead of moving along with marriage and kids, Bell and Sheppard decided to tell the world they wouldn't get married until everyone could (legally speaking!) Once the Supreme Court’s historic ruling striking down the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) took place, Kristen popped the question. She even tweeted, "@daxshepard1 will you marry me? Xo #marriageequality #loveislove." Unsurprisingly, he said yes.
#3. Haley Lu Richardson
The lovely Haley Lu Richardson is starring in the upcoming romantic movie Five Feet Apart. But romance has always played a major role in her life. Richardson has never considered herself a major romantic. But after dating Jane the Virgin actor Brett Dier for years, she decided someone needed to step up their game and pop the question. “I just asked,” she told Busy Phillips during an interview by Busy Tonight. The setting was pretty casual as well, as the couple was just lying on the couch. "He was sitting there eating a pizza and he was telling me a joke that Shia LaBeouf had said in an interview, and he was, like, pretending to be Shia LaBeouf explaining this joke and for some reason, I just cut him off and was like, ‘Wanna marry me?'"
#4. Britney Spears
Britney Spears and Kevin Federline were one of the most toxic couples in pop culture history. Their romance was pretty chaotic from the get-go. But that didn't stop Spears from kicking everything she'd worked for to the curb in order to be with Federline. Sadly, their love for each other quickly fizzled out. But before these two were tangled up in scandals and custody fights, a very starry-eyed Spears proposed to Federline in 2004 when they were flying from Ireland to NYC. "All of a sudden I said, ‘What if you want to get married?’ And I kind of went from there to asking him if he would marry me." Surprisingly, he said no. But only because he wanted to be the one who proposed. He said, "I’d known for a while that she’s the one.” The couple ended up calling it quits three years later.
#5. Zsa Zsa Gabor
The late actress Zsa Zsa Gabor paid her own bills and chose her men, not the other way around. You could say this Hungarian-American socialite was years ahead of her time. She supposedly proposed to all nine of her hubbies. The first guy was a Turkish diplomat, and she popped the question when she was just 15!
