Most good-looking people take a long time to settle down. Instead, they spend their youth having different partners until they meet the one person who captures hearts once and for all. 

Oh, cowboy! 

Let's talk honestly: there was no more handsome cowboy than Gary Cooper. He was so incredibly popular that it was shameful not to like him. 

Indeed, a lot of produces offered him deals in hundreds of movies, fans went crazy over his talent and looks, and females 'threw' themselves to his arms.

Photos, indeed, cannot convey that charisma which the public and the ladies loved to the fullest. The cowboy allegedly had a romance with Marlene Dietrich, Ingrid Bergman, and Grace Kelly. The longest actor's novel was with the film star Patricia Neil.

Even after many years in Hollywood, the iconic star is still considered a model of masculinity and style. 

Love story

After multiple affairs, his sweetheart became a famous actress, Veronica "Rocky" Balfe. They tied the knot in 1933. It was a classic marriage of convenience: Cooper received the necessary communications for a career, and Veronica got a handsome husband who did not restrict her privacy rights.

From the very beginning of the marriage, the couple gave each other complete freedom. They often lived in different cities. Ironically, there was a hilarious situation, when they independently arrived at the same resort, settled in different rooms of the same hotel, and then, without bumping into each other, went traveling further.

The spouses pretended that they hadn't noticed each other's affairs and other controversial things. Moreover, they had never mentioned divorce and somehow remained together. Maybe something or someone kept them glued?

Heir

Exactly, someone did keep them together. It was their only child - Maria Cooper Janis, 81. Believe it or not, but she is a lookalike to her late handsome father. Every inch reminds people of the most famous cowboy.

Maria is a successful artist, though she is also a producer and actress, best known for her role in Sleepy Hollow Night. Even though Gary Cooper wasn't 'too loyal', but his heir always pays touching tributes to him and talks about the actor's personality.
