Over the years, we have seen plenty of celebrities fall in and out of love. But among the numerous celebrity couples, there are some romances that we will never forget. Though we may hate to admit it, there are some celebrities we wish were still together. Read on and take the lovesick romantic in you for a walk down memory lane.
1. Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe
The moment we saw Phillippe and Witherspoon together on Cruel Intentions, we knew that they were meant together. So when they announced that they were calling it quits after being married from 1999 to 2008, we were totally devastated. Phillippe is now engaged to his new fiancée Paulina Slagter while Witherspoon moved on with talent manager Jim Toth.
2. Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson
Just when we thought that things were going well for Edward and Bella, some shocking news broke. Last year, photos of Stewart cheating on Pattinson made rounds in the media and although the actress made a public apology, Pattinson called it quits. We’re still in denial but no matter what happens, they are still our favorite vamp couple.
3. Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling
McAdams and Gosling was Hollywood’s golden couple. They made us fall in love with their passionate romance not only on The Notebook but also in real life. We really thought that they were meant to be together and we are still in denial of their devastating breakup.
4. Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston
Yes, folks, we are going there and there is no stopping us. Plenty of you may love the Pitt-Jolie tandem and their undeniably cute kids but we miss the iconic Brad and Jen fairy tale romance. The two dated in the ‘90s and had quite a controversial split. Aniston is now married to the sizzling hot Justin Theroux.
5. Ian Somerhalder and Nina Drobev
Here is another vamp couple who also tore our hearts apart when they broke up. Somerhalder and Drobev started out as co-stars in the hit series The Vampire Diaries. While working together they fell in love but eventually, the flame burnt out. Somerhalder went on to marry Nikki Reed and here we are, left with an aching heart.
6. Ryan Reynolds and Scarlett Johansson
While we are happy that Reynolds has finally found his happy ending with Gossip Girl’s Blake Lively, we cannot help but reminisce to those times when he was with another blonde bombshell – Johansson. Their relationship was too good to be true and so we guess life did something about that. After two years of marriage, Johansson filed for divorce. She is now married to French journalist Romain Dauriac.
7. Heidi Klum and Seal
It was a perfect love story – an angel fell in love with the crooner. We thought that Klum and Seal were in for the long haul but despite having a family together, they called it quits in 2012. It was reported that the two had an “amicable” divorce and agreed to remain good friends for their children.
8. Sean “Diddy” Combs and Jennifer Lopez
When Combs and Lopez were still in a relationship, they were among the hottest couples in the music industry – perhaps even in the biggest! We are heartbroken that the two talented artists had to part ways but we are glad that they’ve remained good friends. They were recently spotted partying together in Lopez’s 2015 American Music Awards After Party and in one interview with the Daily Mail, Combs admitted, “I will always love Jennifer.”
9. Nick Jonas and Miley Cyrus
Theirs was a young love but how unforgettable their romance was! We are happy for Cyrus that she has recently rekindled her romance with Liam Hemsworth but we cannot help but look back to those days when she was a little more conservative and very much in love with Jonas. Although it has been years since the two have broken up, Jonas still supports his ex-girlfriend. When Cyrus was chosen to host the Video Music Awards, he publicly complimented her on Twitter saying, “The more I think about the VMAs the more I think about how much @MileyCyrus is gonna kill it as the host. #greatchoicemtv”
10. Rachel Bilson and Adam Brody
Don’t get us wrong! We totally ship the current Seth Cohen-Blair Waldorf romance but we can’t help but long for the good old days when Seth and Summer were lovers in real life. Bilson and Brody broke up in 2006 and Bilson went on to marry the gorgeous Hayden Christensen while Brody tied the knot with Gossip Girl’s Leighton Meester.
11. Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens
There was only one reason why we loved High School Musical and we think the answer is already pretty obvious. Efron and Hudgens is our favorite Disney couple and we were absolutely disappointed when they broke up. Hudgens claimed that their relationship was already becoming unhealthy for her and that Efron was already turning her into a “bad person.” We are saddened to hear her revelations but even so, we are still huge fans of Gabriella and Troy.
12. Winona Ryder and Johnny Depp
Ryder and Depp was perhaps the coolest Hollywood couple of all! They were the perfect match for each other and had quite a colorful love story. While they were still together, Depp had “Winona Forever” tattooed on his arm. Now that they have split up, we are left wondering, what ever happened to that tattoo?
