You Won’t Believe How Long These 5 Celebs Kept Their V-Cards!
You would NEVER think of Hollywood as the last bastion of purity and modesty. But even in scandal-loving Hollywood some people still have the guts to hold onto what they believe in, even if it makes them the minority.
Below are some of the most popular and surprising celebrities to hold onto their V-cards.
- Jessica Simpson
Jessica Simpson, coming from a conservative Baptist background, decided that she would wait until marriage to have sex. She said “I promised God, my father, and my future husband that I would remain a virgin until I got married”. Her father, a minister in Dallas, gave her a purity ring at age 12 and Simpson has been true to her word. She married her first husband Nick Lachey in 2002 (at the time she was 22), and we presume she lost her virginity to him, but they eventually parted ways and got divorced in 2005.
Since losing her virginity at the age of 22, she has been linked with several celebrities. One of whom, John Mayer, claimed that his sexual relationship with Jessica Simpson was like “sexual napalm”.
- Carrie Underwood
Another Southern belle, Carrie Underwood lost her virginity quite late (by Hollywood standards anyway) when she gave it up on her wedding night in 2010. In 2007 the American Idol alum reportedly told Slate magazine that she would remain a virgin until her wedding night.
In 2010, 3 years after the interview, Underwood married her current husband Mike Fischer. Michael Andrew Fischer is an athlete and plays hockey for the Nashville Predators. He played for the Ottawa Senators before that.
While it is not clear if Underwood did lose her virginity to her husband on their wedding night, if she did she would’ve been 26 at the time.
- Adriana Lima
Bet you didn’t see that coming (no pun intended).
Adriana Lima, our favorite Victoria’s Secret angel and arguably one of the most lusted after models in the world, was a virgin the whole time she was strutting her stuff. Things changed when she married Serbian NBA player, Marko Jarić, in 2009. Unfortunately, the couple divorced in 2014. It’s hard to imagine that a woman like Adriana, who appears scantily clad in newspapers, ads, magazines and on the catwalk, waited so long to lose her virginity.
In a 2006 interview with GQ’s Lisa DePaulo, a 25-year old Lima admits to being a virgin and believing, amongst other conservative things, that sex should be reserved for marriage. The model, who is Catholic, also goes to church every Sunday and does not believe in abortion. Who knew?
- Tim Tebow
It is no secret that Christianity and its traditions are very important to football star Tim Tebow, but even we can’t believe this guy has never been laid. Tall, handsome, a great athlete and an overall nice guy, he probably gets panties thrown at him all the time.
But Tebow insists that he is highly in favor of abstinence because it is required of him by his faith. It comes as no surprise that Tim Tebow is so pious, his father is a Baptist minister and both of his parents have been Evangelical missionaries in the past.
It was in 2009 that Tebow’s virginity made headlines when he told reporters he was saving himself for marriage during a Southeastern Conference Media Days event. If you don’t believe us, here’s a video from the conference.
- Lisa Kudrow
Lisa Kudrow’s virginity came as a surprise both because of how different she apparently is from Phoebe, the promiscuous hippie she played on the hit sitcom Friends, and because she lost her virginity to her husband so late in life.
Kudrow, who holds a degree in Biology, is quoted as saying, “I don’t know if you’d characterize me as uptight, but I understood what it is to be so afraid of sex, of your sexuality… for me it was just ‘No, I’m saving myself. Because I have to make myself worthy of the kind of man I have in mind’”.
Reading her statement though, we can’t help but feel like she no longer thinks being “so afraid” of her sexuality was such a good idea.
Kudrow married French advertising executive Michael Stern in 1995. Assuming she gave up her V-card to him on the night of their wedding, Kudrow will have lost her virginity at the age of 32. It turns out, Lisa Kudrow might have been right to wait for The One all along.
She and Michael Stern have been married for a little over two decades.
