When we think of our favorite celebrities, more often than not we imagine their soul mate standing right next to them. Every Angelina has a Brad, and every Ryan has a Blake. But before finding their other half, the stars have combed through a lot of boyfriends and girlfriends (probably). I suppose we have to say that Angelina and Brad are combing again. Some of those exes/stars went on to become someone else’s soul mates, so I guess it all evens out.
Get ready to see 12 celebrity couples you didn’t even know were dating!
1. Ryan Gosling and Sandra Bullock
21 year old Gosling and 38 year old Bullock used to date! Just imagine that.
2. Lenny Kravitz and Kylie Minogue
This dude had more chicks than there are cat hairs on my carpet. And not just some groupies, I’m talking elite celebrities: Madonna, Naomi Campbell, Nicole Kidman, Penelope Cruz, Kate Hudson, and even Adriana Lima. Why is Kylie so special? Well, he still says her tush was the best he’s ever seen, and I believe him.
3. Moby and Natalie Portman
Nobody cares about Moby today, but he used to be a great musician in 2001, and, apparently, a very jealous lover, according to his own words.
4. Jennifer Aniston and Paul Rudd
What? Ant-Man and Rachel used to be a thing in 1988? Well, color me surprised! And even after their breakup, one year later, they remained friends, probably to this day.
5. Brad Pitt and Gwyneth Paltrow
You may not remember this but Paltrow and Pitt played a couple in “Seven”, where she ended up in the box. They even got engaged in 1996! … aaand then they split a year later.
6. Liv Tyler and Benedict Cumberbatch
Okay, this one’s not 100% legit, it’s more of a rumor, but back in 2012 Slumberbunch and Tyler went out somewhere together, but made sure they were seen leaving separately. Of course, this doesn’t mean anything, except that a couple of days later, they were spotted leaving a movie theater.
7. Robert Downey Jr. and Sarah Jessica Parker
In the early 80’s RDJ and SJP’s careers were still in their infancy, so they had little to lose by dating each other. Somehow these two super-stars-to-be managed to date for nearly 7 years without getting married. In 1991 they went their separate ways, though.
8. George Clooney and Lucy Liu
Everyone thought Clooney preferred blondes, but then Liu happened in 2000… and again in 2005. Damn, Georgie, you came back for more!
9. Bradley Cooper and Zoe Saldana
You probably know that Cooper and Saldana are both in the Guardians of the Galaxy as Rocket and Gamora, respectively. But did you know they also used to date? They met on the set of “The Words”, fell in love, fought, fell in love again, fought again… You know how love can be, right?
10. Jared Leto and Scarlett Johansson
Who would’ve thought that Black Widow would find the Joker attractive? Leto and Johansson were an item in 2004 for a few months. You can see from the pic that she really liked him, while he was…
11. Tom Cruise and Sofia Vergara
Cruise and Vergara went out for a while, until he decided to recruit her into his cult called “Scientology”. Needless to say Sofia did not want any part in that nonsense, so she dumped his ass. He had similar “no thank you’s” from first wife Nichole Kidman and second wife Katy Holmes over the Scietology thing. Tom the ladies are trying to tell you something.
12. Chris Pratt and Emily Vancamp
And finally, the most surprising couple (for me at least) – Pratt and Vancamp. Way before they were Marvel stars, these two lovely human beings starred in some weird CW drama called “Eastwood”. Look at them now: from CW to the biggest screens in the world. Who woulda thunk it!
