TheDailyBeast: Couples We Can Still Believe In

9 of 10

Diane Sawyer and Mike Nichols

Diane Sawyer had director Mike Nichols on her wish list before they even met. But love wasn’t what she was wishing for; she merely wanted "60 Minutes" of his time as a profile subject for the CBS program, for which she was a correspondent. When they met in an airport waiting room in Paris in 1986, however, things changed. A lunch arranged to discuss business turned into a heated romance, and the two have been together since (nearing 23 years). "He’s generous and adventurous and a little wild and utterly kind. It’s that combination of something you’re completely sure of and something dangerous and interesting. And he’s also the funniest man on the face of the earth," Sawyer told People of her husband. Nichols shares her sentiments, reportedly saying of Sawyer, "When I first met my wife, I thought nobody can be that perfect. But she is." Fourth time seems to be the charm for the television legend.
