And they said it wouldn’t last. Back in 2001, “Sex & the City” star John Corbett, 53, confessed that he always had a huge crush on 80’s sex symbol Bo Derek, 57. When he finally met her, they started dating. John has always enjoyed being a bachelor and had no interest in marrying or having children. They’ve been together for twelve years now and Bo says being apart sometimes helps their relationship. John works nonstop – TV, movies, and tons of voice-overs. Bo works occasionally and does a lot of riding at their ranch. Separation makes their hearts grow fonder.
