Sunday, October 2 by Ed Mulero

Famous interracial couples prove that change really has come to Hollywood after so many decades removed from the Civil Rights movement. Back in the day, many opinions about interracial dating mirrored scenes like "Jungle Fever," but, thankfully, society caught up with the times. As many colors make a rainbow, each one works together to create a marvelous image and the world deserves a brighter future. Interracial love is no more a taboo subject as who's wearing what on Oscar night in front of cameras. Images and news of interracial couples breaks walls down just like a Hollywood blockbuster breaks box office records.

Roger Ebert and Chaz Hammel-Smith

The world's famous thumb made a career criticizing movies for the "Chicago Sun-Times" newspaper, but he's also one half of an interracial couple. Roger Ebert married attorney Chaz Hammel-Smith in 1992 after a three-year courtship and they have been together ever since. His wife works as vice president of the Ebert Company while Ebert continues to write movie reviews for the same newspaper despite bouts with cancer.

Robert De Niro and Grace Hightower

A movie tough guy definitely found his mafia doll in the shape of a former TWA flight attendant and model to make a handsome interracial couple. The star of "Goodfellas" and "Casino" met his lovely peach back in London in 1987 and settled down with her ten years later. Art certainly imitated life as Robert De Niro starred in "The Score" as a world-class thief who has an interracial relationship with the sexy Angela Bassett.

Salma Hayek and François-Henri Pinault

Famous Mexican actress meets French businessman and what you have is an interracial power couple. A blind man can easily see what allured the CEO of PPR to the hot actress of such films as "From Dusk Till Dawn" and "Frida." The couple renewed their wedding vows just in case any other of their famous friends missed out the first time like Bono, Penelope Cruz and Stella McCartney.

Roselyn Sanchez and Eric Winter

Puerto Rican model and actress became involved with the "Days of Our Lives" actor and the famous interracial couple haven't been apart since. The gorgeous beauty of "Chasing Papi" and "Rush Hour 2" and "The Mentalist" star made it official in 2008 on the island of Puerto Rico. Lord knows their children will be as gorgeous as these two when they grow up.

Seal and Heidi Klum

The world's famous crooner hooked up with a runway goddess and no one can help but recognize this well-known interracial couple. The singer of "Kiss From a Rose" and "Crazy" and fashion model in magazines like "Vogue" to Victoria's Secret campaigns wasted little time creating a family with kids of their own after marrying in 2005. No surprise, these two make beautiful music together.
