Any female performers who share a last name with their husband?

I've noticed that female performers tend to keep the surname they were born with, if they don't come up with a whole new artist name entirely. They hardly ever take their husband's name. Please help me find a decent list of exceptions. I am looking for answers in two categories:
1. Women who started as performers, then changed their last names when they got married.
2. Women who got married and took their husbands' last names, then embarked on successful performance careers.
Bonus points for women from the above cases whose husbands aren't famous themselves.
Important: I am not
interested in cases where the actress creates a hyphenation of her maiden name and her husband's name, like Farrah Fawcett-Majors, Jada Pinkett Smith, or Pamela Anderson Lee. Unfortunately those are the only ones I can think of!
