The 49-year-old producer also seemed to have found whatever her husband said funny as she grinned in both slides. In the first picture, Susan looked stunning in her wedding dress while holding a bouquet of orchids, while Robert could be seen looking dapper in a dark suit.

In the next slide, fast forward to recent times, Susan was dressed more casually with a simple white blouse as she held a bouquet of sunflowers while the "Iron Man" star donned a yellow long-sleeve shirt. The "Oppenheimer" actor proclaimed in the caption, "18 years, love still in bloom!!"

Susan produced the film then through her job with the production company Silver Pictures. Several months after the lovers became an item, they made their red carpet debut at the premiere of "The Singing Detective," starring Robert, Katie Holmes, Robin Wright, and Adrien Brody. 

In November, a month after their red carpet debut, the "Chaplin" star proposed to Susan, mere hours before she turned 30, as revealed in a 2004 interview on "The Oprah Winfrey Show." Two years following their engagement, they got hitched on Long Island, New York, with celebrity guests like Sting, Keanu Reeves, and Billy Joel in attendance. 

The 'Zodiac' Star's Ex, Sarah Jessica Parker, Reflected On Her Past Romance With Him 

Before Robert found his soulmate in Susan, he was involved with fellow Hollywood star Sarah Jessica Parker from 1984 to 1991.

Parker once opened up about their love affair in an interview, conveying how exasperated she felt about her attempts to support the "Tropic Thunder" actor amid his struggles with addiction

The "Firstborn" actress divulged that she was usually disregarded by those close to Robert despite her rock-solid dedication to providing him with a stable and conducive environment.

She told the outlet, "People around him would be dismissive of me, but I had given him stability and tried to create a steady heartbeat that allowed him to show up on time." Although the dismissal made Parker "angry and embarrassed," she and Robert currently have an amicable relationship and respect each other.
