Cyndi Lauper, 56, and actor David Thornton, 56, met during the filming of the 1991 movie “Off and Running.” The two became friends, but it didn’t take long for their friendship to spark into romance. The couple quickly fell head over heals for one another and married the same year on November 24, in Manhattan.
In true Cyndi Lauper style their wedding was anything but ordinary and Little Richard (who is an ordained minister) performed the marriage ceremony. Patti LaBelle performed at the wedding where “Pee-Wee Herman” was one of the guests. Although Cyndi Lauper had some great clothing ideas for the wedding, including go-go pants and heels, and dressing like a lighted Christmas tree, her friends and family convinced her to wear a traditional white dress.
Cyndi Lauper and David Thornton had a son, Declyn Wallace Thornton Lauper in November 17, 2009. The couple has been married nearly 20 years and their relationship (and creative juices) are still going strong. Lauper and Thornton even decided to make another movie together and the premiere of their new film “Here and There” took place on April 23, 2009.
Here’s the movie trailer for Cyndi Lauper/David Thornton’s new movie “Here and There:”
Before she met David Thornton, Cyndi Lauper was in a serious relationship with David Wolff, who was also her manager. David Wolfe made appearances in many of Lauper’s videos at the height of her fame in the 1980’s, including “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun.” The couple never married and split up in 1989.
It’s funny how we don’t hear much news on the stars that have made their marriages work for so long. There are many celebrity couples who’ve successfully survived the ups and downs of living such a public life, and it’s nice to see that Cyndi Lauper and David Thornton are on that list.
