Rita looked totally radiant in a fluffy black dress. She wore a leather jacket to help keep the biting cold of London away.
The couple may be sporting a relatively different look today than they did 30 years ago, but they still look as dashing as ever. Pictured below is the couple, all smile at the Hollywood premiere of Dragnet in 1987. The event took place at the Paramount Pacific Theater in Hollywood, California.
Back then, Tom was all for buttoned-down dress shirts and blazers. He still did look dapper. Rita showed up in this eye-catching knee-grazing black dress with lots of shoulders to show. A lot of time has passed since 1987, but one thing is clear, Tom and Rita know their fashion and continue to be sought after by the paparazzi.
Hollywood romances are notorious for being either short or highly celebrated and quickly fizzling out. Some of the most talked about relationships burnt bright but went out as quickly as they burnt. But Tom and Rita have been going strong for 30 years and do not seem in any hurry to stop.
Tom and Rita were both born in California and, from their early years, picked an interest in the theater and performance. They first met in 1981 on the set of ABC sitcom Bosom Buddies. But as fate would have it, they did not make the connection until 1985.
The couple had the opportunity to work together again, this time on the 1985 movie Volunteers. They fell in love, although Tom was married at the time to the late Samantha Lewes. Tom eventually got a divorce from his first wife Samantha in 1987. And a year later, he was married to Rita.
Speaking on what keeps their relationship strong, Tom confesses:
I wish there was a secret, you know. We just like each other. You start there.
But their relationship was not always rosy. In 2015, Rita was diagnosed with breast cancer. It was a troubling time for the celebrity couple, but Tom stood by her throughout, even after she got a mastectomy.
They have two children together (Chester and Truman) and also are parents to Elizabeth and Colin from Tom’s marriage to Samantha.
Their love is as strong as it has always been.
