22 Hottest Celebrity Couples That Got Everyone's Attention
People are always fascinated by the relationship journey of celebrities. We watch their love unfold on the big screen and binge-watch their dramatic breakups on social media. One of the best things about Hollywood is that everyone wants to keep up with what the stars are doing, even when it comes to their love life. So without further ado, we present you with the 22 hottest celebrity couples that have made a buzz for years!
1. Katy Perry and John Mayer
Few celebrity relationships are as emotionally complicated as pop singer Katy Perry and her former flame John Mayer. The two dated back in 2012 when things were still just getting started between them - Katy had only released one studio album, while John was still trying to find his songwriting voice again after several years of self-imposed exile. However, the relationship ended abruptly after a little more than a year and a half. There were rumors of cheating on both sides, but neither party has ever publicly confirmed or denied such allegations.
2. Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow
The love story of singer Chris Martin and actress Gwyneth Paltrow is a testimony that even celebrity marriages aren't always perfect. The two married in 2003 after dating for several years. Still, they were plagued by cheating rumors throughout the relationship, which ended in 2014. It was suggested that their divorce was partially caused by their desire to have children. It seemed as if there was a chance that this would be a happy family with three children together, but sadly it wasn't meant to be.
3. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie
If you are looking for a celebrity love story that's distantly related to the one about Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow, then this is it. The couple is one of the most high-profile Hollywood couples we have today - Angelina Jolie is undoubtedly an A-lister. In contrast, Brad Pitt has shown himself to be a major player in Hollywood. The two first met at a movie premiere in 1998 and immediately sparked romance rumors. After dating for several years, they married in 2014 and divorced in 2016.
4. Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green
It's not every day that a Hollywood couple stays together for over a decade - but Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green have managed to do just that. They are one of the longest-married couples in show business, having tied the knot back in 2010. The actor and his actress wife have two children together and seem happy together. They divorced in 2021.
5. Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony
Jennifer Lopez is famous for several things - her ability to make a song sound as if it has been written by several different artists, her love life with musicians, such as DJ (ex) Casper, whether or not she is actually a good singer or not, and how well she can dance to Latin music. From the beginning of her career, she's managed to attract many men who were willing to date her, but they were all temporary relationships. It wasn't until she started dating musician Marc Anthony that she happily married from 2004 to 2014.
6. Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson
Actor Tom Hanks has been married twice, but we had only seen the aftermath of the relationships, so there was no way to see what drama they began in. The first time played out pretty much like any other celebrity love story - he met his wife-to-be through a mutual friend, and they began dating soon after their first meeting. They married in 1992 and had two children together before divorcing in 1999.
7. Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas
The relationship between stars Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas was one of the most public ones of 2018. The two were an item for a long time, which made them an exciting couple to follow - they dated for around five years until their break-up and were also engaged briefly. However, the two seem to have been back together whenever their schedules allowed. They have been happily married from 2019 till now.
8. Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes
Tom Cruise is one of the biggest Hollywood stars of all time, and he has been married several times. He began dating actress Nicole Kidman back in 1990. Still, the two broke up and got back together several times before finally ending their relationship for good in 2001. After having a child with Kidman, Tom met actress Katie Holmes and married her in 2006 - however, after a short marriage of six years, they called it quits.
9. Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston
Brad Pitt was one of the biggest actors of his generation: he started acting around 1991 when he was only twenty years old. He was only twenty-one when he began dating actress Jennifer Aniston. The two dated on and off throughout the nineties until they finally married in 2000. They had two children together and did their best to keep the relationship going - but they eventually divorced after five years of marriage.
10. Mel Gibson and Robyn Moore
Gibson was the biggest star of his generation - a combination of Depp's success with the Pirates of the Caribbean movies and John Travolta's "suitability" for The Passion of the Christ - but he eventually became one of the most hated men in Hollywood after he was accused of domestic violence against his ex-girlfriend, Robyn Moore. Gibson beat Moore in 2015, so it wasn't a surprise that she would take her revenge by breaking up with him completely - which she did just about a week later.
11. Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon
Mariah Carey is one of the most successful singers in history - and she has also acted on screen, becoming a massive star in her own right. She was married to rapper/actor Nick Cannon from 2008 until 2016. They had two children together, both boys - Moroccan Scott Cannon and Monroe Cannon. Their divorce was finalized in 2016 after eight years of marriage. After their divorce, Mariah began dating R and 'B singer Bryan Tanaka for a short time before getting back together with another R and 'B singer Trey Lorenz for another long-term relationship.
12. Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake
Britney Spears is one of the most successful pop stars in history - however, her personal life has been far from happy, to say the least. She began dating Justin Timberlake in 1999 when she was only sixteen years old - but unfortunately for her, Timberlake was just sixteen as well (so it didn't really count as a relationship). In 2000, they broke up and relapsed until 2002. They got back together again that year and stayed together until they got engaged in 2003. However, they broke up again later that year, and Britney became pregnant with his child. After a very quick marriage and pregnancy, Britney gave birth to Sean Preston - who is now sixteen. Justin and Britney were together for two years until their separation in 2007. However, they got back together again in 2011 - which lasted until 2014, when they announced their divorce.
13. Jenna Dewan-Tatum and Channing Tatum
The youngest brother of actors Brad and Jaden, 41-year-old Channing Tatum, has been very successful in his own right as an actor - not unlike his brothers. He dated actress Jenna Dewan-Tatum from 2002 until 2006. Still, they got back together again in 2009 and married each other until 2019.
14. Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck
Jennifer Lopez is one of the most successful singers in Hollywood - she began her career as a dancer for another famous singer, Selena. She tied the knot with former actor and director Ben Affleck in 2003, making them one of the most famous couples in Hollywood. They had two daughters together - Violet (born in 2004) and Seraphina (born in 2005). As they divorced a few years later, Jennifer started dating talent manager Cris Judd (who became her manager) briefly before getting back together with Ben Affleck again. It was rumored that they were planning to marry after Jennifer had had one more child. Still, they actually divorced only a year later, in 2008. They again got engaged in 2022.
15. Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick
Scott Disick is the youngest son of Kris Jenner and the first gay man in the Kardashian-Jenner clan (which is a highly famous family!). He has been dating Kourtney Kardashian since 2011, although he has openly admitted that he is not gay (but somewhat bisexual). They got married that year and have three children together - Mason James, Penelope Scotland-Disick, and Reign Aston Disick.
16. Mandy Moore and Ryan Adams
Mandy Moore is a very successful singer and actress who has sold over 15 million albums worldwide. She began dating musician Ryan Adams in 2007. However, they only dated for one year before getting married in March 2009 - but sadly, their relationship lasted only a year as well. They got back together briefly in 2013 but broke up again later. However, they announced their divorce only three years later, in 2016. Although they were never married to each other, they were both engaged to each other at some point during the seven years that they were together.
17. Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen
The dynamic duo has been married for nearly 13 years now and has made tabloid headlines ever since. If you ask us, our favorite thing about the couple is that not a day goes by without one of them making headlines. Gisele and Tom are head-over-heels for each other, from each other to their kids, and it shows on their faces every day.
18. Paul McCartney and Nancy Shevell
This couple has been married for 11 years now and is still going strong. They have a love story that can only be expected of royalty, as they met back when they met over 20 years ago. The two were married in 2011 and have become one of the most iconic celebrity couples!
19. Drake and Rihanna
The pair has been in the spotlight for about half a decade now, and although things have changed since then, we can’t see them not making some noise together forever. Rihana and Drake seem to be best friends for life, as they always have a story of some kind happening to them.
20. Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello
The young couple announced their breakup on Instagram and Twitter on 17 November 2021, which shocked us all! The two were seen kissing at the AMAs, which happened just a few weeks before their split. The two were often spotted ringing in the new year together, so it's hard to picture them not spending time with each other now.
21. Johnny Depp and Amber Heard
The pair met on the set of "The Rum Diary," where we first saw them together. If you recall, Johnny Depp tried to set her up with his friend's son, but Amber was more than happy to give the relationship a try. They were married for two years before their divorce was finalized, and we are all left to wonder what could have been if they had stayed together.
22. Ariana Grande and Big Sean
This musical couple has been together for a while now. Some media speculated that it was only a matter of time before they broke up. The two never gave us any real signs of trouble, though, always showing everyone that they are so much better than just the result of the breakup stage.
The celebrity couples on our list have all made headlines in one way or another. Some are still together, while others have sadly called it quits. What do these famous pairs teach us about love? That there's no one-size-fits-all answer to that question! Every couple is unique and has its own story to tell. We hope you enjoyed reading about the 22 hottest celebrity couples.
