Hollywood's Bread-Winning Babes

Seal was a big star in the 1990s, but these days, the British singer can hardly hold a candle to his supermodel wife, Heidi Klum. Gracing the covers of the world's most famous magazines, Klum scored herself a spot on Forbes's World's 15 Top-Earning Supermodels list. She increased her profile -- and paycheck -- exponentially as the producer and host of Bravo's "Project Runway." In between it all, she finds time to play mom to her three children, two of which she had with Seal.

Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins

Susan Sarandon has been in a plethora of films. She scored a best actress Oscar for her role in "Dead Man Walking," and parlayed her stardom into political activism. She met Tim Robbins in 1988 while filming "Bull Durham," and the two have been together ever since. But while Sarandon's star kept rising, after he won an Oscar for "Mystic River," Robbins' success fell short. The couple have two sons together, Jack Henry and Miles Guthrie.

Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale

Gwen Stefani started her career as the lead singer of pop-punk band No Doubt. But what started as a gig with a fledgling band turned into a super-successful career in music and fashion. Stefani now performs solo and heads up a clothing line, L.A.M.B. She met hubby Gavin Rossdale while on tour with No Doubt in 1995, back when he was singing for the rock band of the moment, Bush. Now, she's the bigger star. The couple got married in 2002 and had their first child, Kingston, in May 2006. They have another one due this August.

Courteney Cox and David Arquette

Courteney Cox is probably best known as super-neurotic Monica Geller on "Friends," but she also showed her strength as a movie actress in the "Scream" series and "The Longest Yard." She met hubby David Arquette while they were filming "Scream" and added his last name to hers after they married in June 1999. But her star status far transcends his. His most high-profile role since "Scream"? Cameos in World Championship Wrestling shows.

Sandra Bullock and Jesse James

"Miss Congeniality's" Sandra Bullock settled down with biker boyfriend Jesse James when they tied the knot in 2005. She had already crafted a stellar career with "Speed" and "While You Were Sleeping." James, on the other hand, was the host of "Monster Garage," during its short run on the Discovery Channel from 2002 to 2006.

Drew Barrymore and Justin Long

Third time might be a charm for Drew Barrymore, who started her Hollywood career at a very young age with "ET." She's been married and divorced twice, but has been involved with Justin Long since late last year. While Barrymore's racked up hits, including "Charlie's Angels," "Never Been Kissed" and "The Wedding Singer," Long's claim to fame is his role as the hip Mac user in Apple's ad campaign.

Katherine Heigl and Josh Kelley

"Grey's Anatomy" star Katherine Heigl exploded from small screen actress to big screen knockout with her roles in "Knocked Up" and "27 Dresses." In between climbing the rungs of Hollywood, she found time to fall in love with singer-songwriter Josh Kelley. They married in Park City, Utah, in December 2007. While Heigl certainly helped out Kelley's career by appearing in his video for "Only You," Kelley's negligible success in the music biz is probably of little use to this rising A-lister.
