Pictured here are American actor Charles Bronson and his wife, English actress Jill Ireland. The photo was taken back in 1971 in Santa Monica, California. In addition to starring in their own successful pictures, the glamorous couple co-starred in fifteen films together. She once joked, "I'm in so many Charles Bronson films, because no other actress will work with him."

Ireland was Bronson’s second wife, his first was Harriet Tendler, they had two children together before divorcing in 1965. He married Ireland in October of 1968 and they stayed together until her death in 1990. Ireland died of breast cancer at her home in Malibu, California. Bronson had her cremated and put her ashes in one of his canes– which he was later buried with.
