Director Steven Spielberg was married to actress Amy Irving when he was casting a lead actress for Indiana Jones. Spielberg picked actress Kate Capshaw for the part, and the two had instant chemistry.

Spielberg divorced Irving and married Capshaw in 1991. She even converted to Judaism for the marriage, and the couple is still together today. Happily married, they have two children from previous marriages, adopted another two children together and also welcomed three of their own. It must have been fate!
