When it comes to keeping their personal lives hush-hush, nobody beats out stars such as Jessica Chastain, Anne Hathaway, Kerry Washington or Emma Stone. In fact, they're among the most elusive in Hollywood, conducting their marriages and journeys into motherhood away from the spotlight and off social media.

However, every now and again, these stars share a morsel of their home life, attending high-visibility events and walking the red carpet with their spouses.

And though these ladies may be powerhouses in the entertainment industry, their husbands match their star power — even if it's behind the scenes. Below, find out what the husbands of these super-famous celebrities do for a living.

Emma Stone and Dave McCary's talents are the reason they got together. The Easy A actress was hosting Saturday Night Live for the first time in 2016. On her docket? One of the sketches McCary — who was a segment director and writer for SNL at the time — had written.

Needless to say, sparks flew and the two were engaged two years later. They got married in 2020 and welcomed their baby girl, Louise Jean, in 2021.

Many may not even know that actress Jessica Chastain is married, but the Oscar-winning actress has been with her Italian husband Gian Luca Passi de Preposulo since 2012. They wed in 2017 at the Passi de Preposulo family estate, Villa Tiepolo Passi in Italy.

They quietly welcomed daughter Giulietta in 2018 and then son Augustus in 2020.

Though Passi de Preposulo comes from one of the oldest aristocratic Italian families — his lineage dates back to 973 — he has forged his own path, working in high fashion. He got his start at Armani, where he worked as the director of public relations, before moving on to Moncler.

Though you might see Kelly Rowland's husband around whenever she makes a public appearance, for the most part, Tim Weatherspoon stays out of the limelight.

The two first met back in the early aughts but didn't start dating until much later. They were engaged in 2013 and wed in 2014 in a private ceremony in Costa Rica.

Weatherspoon, who shares two sons with Rowland — Titan Jewell, 9, and Noah Jon, 3 — works in the entertainment industry as a talent manager.

Kerry Washington and Nnamdi Asomugha

At the height of her Scandal fame, Kerry Washington managed to sneak away and marry former NFL player, Nnamdi Asomugha, in the summer of 2013. At the time, the pair's relationship was so low-key, people didn't even know they were dating.

Ten years later, not much has changed, except the pair have welcomed two kids — Isabelle Amarachi, 9, and Caleb Kelechi, 7 — and Asomugha has successfully transitioned from football player to Hollywood producer and actor. The father of three (he has a daughter from a previous relationship) has producing credits on films such as Beasts of No Nation, Harriet and The Banker. And in 2020, he starred in Prime Video's critically acclaimed romantic drama, Sylvie's Love.

Much like those of her fellow leading ladies, Issa Rae's marriage is also shrouded in mystery — on purpose.

Of the little that's known about her husband, Louis Diame, whom she married in 2021 in the South of France, is the fact that they go way back. He appeared on her web series The MisAdventures of Awkward Black Girl back in the day and, according to ESSENCE, he was once listed as an international banker on a now-deleted LinkedIn account.

And while his wife has starred in blockbusters such as Avatar, Guardians of the Galaxy, The Adam Project and more, Perego has made a name for himself as a visual artist, with works featured at Art Basel, the Royal Arts Academy in London, Zurich’s Galerie Gmurzynska and the Museo Tuscolano in Rome, according to ELLE.
