Neil Young and Daryl Hannah have created an absolutely idyllic life together. The two have been together since 2014, shortly after Young divorced his second wife. They make a perfect match, which is why it’s so odd that they’ve faced some unsavory rumors about their marriage.
Canada Is A Long Way From Hollywood
Young and Hannah were married in 2018 and have lived in bliss since, ultimately making their home in Ontario, Canada. Anyone who is even a casual fan of the two knows that the two prefer their privacy and that their arrangement is perfect. For celebrity tabloids, it’s the opposite—the two are living out of the spotlight and are effectively useless for paparazzi to photograph. This means these outlets have to get sneaky to stir up drama about the quiet couple, and Canada, unfortunately, gets caught in the crossfire.
Gossip about Daryl Hannah’s relationship relies on a common narrative about how the Chicago-born actress found Canada too cold or too isolating and how her Canadian husband was too much of a curmudgeon. Some of these rumor writers have obviously spent too much time in Hollywood if they think that living in a luxurious and cozy cabin on a lake is a reason for relationship problems.
There was even a brief time in early 2022 when a satirical joke article was quoted as evidence of Hannah being pregnant in her 60s. Putting aside the problematic nature of joking about pregnancy and fertility, it’s alarming that some outlets have stooped so low as to pass off outright fiction as reality. As intriguing as whispers about Neil Young being a grump or bizarre baby claims are, the couple’s actual life is far more interesting than anything in the pages of a tabloid.
What Are Neil Young And Daryl Hannah Really Doing?
While Neil Young still does the occasional album release or performance, it’s Hannah that’s been creatively excelling in Canada. She’s creating stunning embroideries and sculptures, directing documentaries and music videos for her husband, and making some of the coolest friends we’ve ever seen.
It’s hard to find anything dreamier than her life, which makes it extremely difficult for celebrity gossip to find a way to drag the couple into the supermarket tabloids. Daryl Hannah hasn’t exactly made it a secret that she’s exploring all of these creative avenues and staying this busy—her Instagram has been one of our favorite follows for inspiration. It’s also a great showcase of just how many animals Hannah cares for and how important her home is to her.
Despite how cantankerous Neil Young’s reputation makes him out to be, he’s nothing but a softie when it comes to his wife. The two even carved pumpkins together and ended up making perfect representations of their personalities, with Young’s simple smiling jack-o’lantern delightfully complemented by Hannah’s lovingly winking face. No matter how cold Canada may be, that’s enough to keep us feeling warm inside until summer.
