52 Interracial Celebrity Couples in Hollywood

True love comes in many colors and forms, and doesn't let society take control over its fate. Here's a list of 52 interracial couples in Hollywood who chose to make their own way when it came to love.
Did You Know?

In 1967, the United States Supreme Court struck down the country's last few anti-miscegenation laws (which enforced racial segregation and banned interracial marriage) in the case Loving v. Virginia. Since then, June 12 is known as Loving Day and has become one of the biggest annual celebration held in the country.

From award functions' red carpet to the tabloids lined near the checkout counters, celebrity obsession is everywhere. And no matter how trivial it may be, we can't seem to get enough of hearing about the nitty-gritty details of celebrities and their private lives. Until today, we have witnessed a plethora of celebrities dating one another, getting married, having kids, or living together.

But with so many celebrity couples splitting after a few months of dating or marriages ending in divorce, we can't overlook those couples who overcame the prejudice that comes along with being in an interracial relationship. Take a look at these 52 interracial celebrity couples who truly believe in their hearts that love is colorblind.
