Celeb Romances We Wish Would Have Lasted Longer Have Us Feeling Nostalgic

Whether we watched these celeb couples on the big screen together or followed them on social media, we all care more about celebrity relationships than we probably like to admit. We know how heartbroken we’ve been when couples have announced a big split and wished they would find a way to make it work. Here are some of our absolute favorites that we still haven’t let go of completely.

This relationship is by far one of the all-time greats. You would think it is one of our favorites because they’re both huge names and they looked adorable as the 90s ‘it couple’. But the truth is, it’s because George Clooney and Kelly Preston had a pet pig together. Yes, you read that correctly, a pet pig named Max. Here are other couples that we did not want to say bye to…

Riding With Boys

This one is a little controversial, one word to describe this couple, wild. We all remember Drew Barrymore’s wild years and her marriage with Tom Green went hand in hand with the period. The two met in 1999 and were engaged within the year. They even pulled a prank on SNL pretending they would have the wedding ceremony live on SNL. We can only imagine how the producers felt when the couple was a no show.

Although they were wild, these two young love birds still stole our hearts. We think it is just because they were the definition of young love, crazy in love. As quickly as they fell in love, so too did the relationship collapse, ending in divorce just over a year after tying the knot. Green looks back on it, “I don’t really tend to talk about it that much comfortably [or] publicly. All of that was part of that sort of crazy, whirlwind of a time.”

Not New Girl

Warning: Cute content ahead. Jason Schwartzman and Zooey Deschanel dated for the first time when they were both 19. Jason was actually Zooey’s first boyfriend, pretty cute! What is even cuter is that years later, they were set up again by Dustin Hoffman who knew them both. They had not seen each other in years when Hoffman invited them both over to his house.

The goofiness oozes out of both of them, and a double dose of goofy cuteness as a couple. We hoped that the second time around would stick, but these young lovers only lasted two years the second time around. They parted ways in 2005 and didn’t have any public comments to make.

There’s Something About Cameron

We just assumed Cameron Diaz and Matt Dillon met on set of There’s Something about Mary. False. These two met in 1996 in Minnesota while filming separate movies that were both located there. After spending three years together, Dillon said “I fell in love. It’s a very powerful thing when you feel that way about somebody. Cameron was a muse for me. I hadn’t been in any deep emotional relationships.” Well, that’s adorable.

But, the two broke up shortly after the release of There’s Something about Mary. Turns out, according to Dillon, they didn’t last because he was ready to settle down and start a fam with her, and she just wasn’t ready. Looking back on this and considering Diaz only settled down in her 40s, we guess Dillon wasn’t ready to wait that long.

Spiderman Kiss

The couple we fell in love with on the big screen, because how can you not fall in love with Spiderman and his BAE. Yes, Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield cozied up a year after finishing The Amazing Spider-Man in 2010. And just to let you in on the gossip, the two both split with their significant others to do so. This probably goes hand in hand with the fact that Garfield said that he felt an instant connection with Emma when meeting her. Awwwww.

Celeb Romances We Wish Would Have Lasted Longer 16

It might make you feel better to know that this adorable couple mainly broke up because of demanding careers and they just couldn’t work out their scheduling. So there are no bad vibes going on… Don’t think we could handle it if these two cuties weren’t able to stay fond of each other!  

If It Made Them Happy

We wouldn’t have picked this one! Sheryl Crow and Owen Wilson began dating on the set of The Minus Man in 1999 which was actually Crow’s acting debut. Crow and Wilson actually stayed together for two years before they went their separate ways.

Celeb Romances We Wish Would Have Lasted Longer 10
Image: Infobae

They stayed out of the public eye so we don’t know a whole lot about the ins and outs of this one. What we do know is that they attended the Vanity Fair Oscar Party together in 2000. They definitely put on a good show and were looking mighty cute.

Limitless Love

Bradley Cooper has had a lengthy romantic track record. What we didn’t realize was that Renee Zellweger was a serious contender. Just like the rest of them, these two met on set. Surprise surprise. But these two only started dating in 2009, even though the movie was filmed in 2006. Their relationship got pretty serious pretty quickly and within no time, Zellweger was spending the holiday season with Cooper’s family.

Celeb Romances We Wish Would Have Lasted Longer 17
Image: PopSugar

We can just picture them all in ugly Christmas sweaters straight out of Bridget Jones’ costume wardrobe. And when Cooper’s dad passed away in 2011, Zellweger skipped the Golden Globes and made sure she was by her side. Pretty heavy. Pretty serious. Not sure why they decided to split up, but by the sounds of it they really were there for each other during their time together.

Love, Not Actually

So we all remember when Alan Rickman didn’t give the gold heart necklace to Emma Thompson in Love Actually, right? The betrayal felt too real for us. Luckily, there was nothing of the sorts when it came to Emma Thompson and Hugh Laurie. These two college lovers met at Cambridge University, at drama club. Were they those weird drama club kids on campus? Probably. But we still love them.

Although the romance didn’t last particularly long, the two British actors remained friends and very fond of each other. Laurie even spoke at Thompson’s Hollywood Walk of Fame induction in 2010. If we didn’t love them enough already, Laurie mentioned their break up during the induction, revealing that Thompson “dumped [him] for a mime artist.”

Good Will Loving

So we all know that both Matt Damon and Winona Ryder have had numerous celeb partners. Somehow this relationship seemed to have slipped through the memory cracks a little, but we’re reflecting on why we wish they lasted longer. The lovers have Gwyneth Paltrow to thank for their set up. It all happened while she was shacked up with Ben Affleck, who we of course know is Damon’s BFF. Pretty cute picturing the double date situation that would have gone on.

Celeb Romances We Wish Would Have Lasted Longer 26
Image: Entertainment Tonight

The couple became front and center when Damon took Winona to a pre-Oscar party in 1998, the year of famous Good Will Hunting. These two lasted two years, pushed through the media ringer of rumored breakups and troubles. They looked snugged up at the 2000 Golden Globes, little did we know they were about to call it quits and break our hearts. Would we have called them Manona? Surely! 

Crazy For Penn

Madonna and Sean Penn may not have been couple goals but they did make for gossipy entertainment. We all remember their drama and rumor filled marriage that did not last too long. Penn was actually engaged when he first met Madonna but he was clearly taken by Madonna to call it off. The two met in February of 1985 and were married by that August.

Less than two years later in 1987, Madonna filed for divorce but withdrew them. She again filed for divorce a year later and this time it stuck. The two strong personalities couldn’t handle how similar they were in many ways, according to Madonna, “fiery tempers, strong egos, and stubbornness can tell you, may not make for a lasting marriage.”


How did we forget or miss this one? It seems impossible but here they are, Natalie Portman and Jake Gyllenhaal. These two had a romance between 2002 and 2006… but our timeline isn’t 100%. If you haven’t seen them in Brothers, from 2009, then you’re going to be as sad as we are that this couple ever broke up. And you won’t believe that this film was after they had already broken up.

Celeb Romances We Wish Would Have Lasted Longer 6
Image: Grazia Magazine

What’s even better and proves their goals, the couple now remain friends till this day. That’s what we like to hear! Gyllenhaal apparently described Portman as the Audrey Hepburn of their generation, and continued listing some of her best qualities, including how she’s “graceful, has amazing eyebrows, and is talented, really short, funny, smart, dedicated, incredibly kind and Jewish!”

If He Had Her Love

Did you know that Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez were the first celeb couple to be given a couple name? They made it a thing. Bennifer. And we loved it. They were the ultimate talk of the town. We don’t know if we liked them more than they liked each other. People became obsessed with this famous couple very quickly. Their whirlwind romance started and ended almost equally as fast.

Celeb Romances We Wish Would Have Lasted Longer 21

According to Affleck it was all during the beginning of the tabloid world, and it was like, “Oh my God. It was just a lot of pressure. I think different time, different thing, who knows what could’ve happened? But there was a genuine love there.” We’re not sure on the details but we do know that Affleck had proposed with a fat pink diamond ring but he called off the wedding before we knew it. And then it was just all over.

Sex in The City

Although it seems it seems like Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick have been together forever, we can’t forget about her seven years with Robert Downey Jr. The two met on set of the Firstborn in 1984. They lived together in L.A (cannot imagine Carry Bradshaw not in NYC?!) and they admitted to throwing water balloons at their neighbors from their Hollywood house windows.

We know the relationship was darkened by his substance abuse, but they still made for an iconic duo in the late 80s. SJP once said “I believed I was the person holding him together.” Maybe we’re just nostalgic about the fashion and hair, but they were really cute together. As Downey Jr noted after the breakup, “I was in love with Sarah Jessica . . . and love clearly was not enough.”

Crazy Love

Here is one that comes with a little bit of controversy. We can all agree that both Emily Blunt and Michael Buble are the picture-perfect couple, and even picture-perfect people. But there were rumors of cheating that may have brought this love story to an end. Not what we like to hear. Especially with an adorable couple like this.

Celeb Romances We Wish Would Have Lasted Longer 14
Image: US Magazine

These love birds called it quits after three years of dating. When Emily was asked if Buble cheated on her, she slipped out “I don’t know, it’s complicated. I never want to talk about it. I can’t do it.” We really hope that Buble didn’t do the nasty on Emily, how could you do such a thing to sweet Mary Poppins? 

Young Love

Busy Phillips and Colin Hanks were college sweethearts. The two dated back when she was 18, and he was 19. Adorable young love. They were both students at Loyola Marymount University in the 90s. Did they know they would both rise the Hollywood ladder and stay friends? They are still really good friends… Even their partners are friends!

We don’t know how long they lasted, but we do wish they were still together today. Look how cute they look!? And they’re both hilarious, and we love a goofy couple. But Busy explained “He was my college boyfriend! We are very very close friends now — his wife and I are tight, he and my husband hang out. We go on vacation together. He’s really excited that I’m here.”

If You’re a Bird, I’m a Bird

We almost don’t even need to bother saying anything. Noah and Ali speak for Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams. What is funny to know, is that they hated each other on set. Ryan tried to get Rachel fired from The Notebook in 2004. Thankfully, the directors knew better or we would have missed out on a crucial moment in our rom-com history. But these two love birds only got together a few years later, showing us couple goals briefly from 2005-2007. 

Celeb Romances We Wish Would Have Lasted Longer 24
Image: Marie Claire

We can’t stop ourselves from just assuming that everything about their relationship was how we saw it on the big screen. Why didn’t they end up together like they did in the movie!? We wish, we really do wish. When our favorites did split up, they at least split up amicably. Ryan even said, “I had two of the greatest girlfriends of all time, [Sandra Bullock and Rachel McAdams].” We will always be team Ali and Noah!

Step Back Up, Please

Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan have to be one of our all-time favorite couples. We’re still trying to work through our emotions about this split. We fell in love with them as they did with each other. How could we not after seeing them dance like that in Step Up where they first met back in 2006. Their fairytale love was followed by a fairytale Malibu wedding in 2009, and nine adorable years of marriage.

We were all shook by the announcement of the split, and we’re still processing. Jenna tried to explain it, “People grow and they change and sometimes they don’t grow and change together,” she explains. “So it wasn’t an overnight thing that happened. There was no one event. I think it was just a slow realization that we wanted different things.” We’re still just hoping they end up together. Because they have to. Please.

The One With Monica’s Relationship

Courteney Cox and David Arquette are one of those couples you still seem to think are together. We don’t know if it’s the boss co-parenting or the friendly pictures we still see pop up of them post-split, but we are loving the maturity in this one. The two met on the of the 1996 film Scream and hit off almost straight away.

Celeb Romances We Wish Would Have Lasted Longer 27
Image: US Magazine

After 14 years together, they separated and a few years later, the divorce was final. We do wish these two were able to make it last, but at least we get to still see them as a happy family with their daughter Coco. Courteney explained it simply, “I think that we were such good friends. We found ourselves leading separate lives and just coexisting and being great friends, but not having the intimacy that…is so important in a relationship.”


If we weren’t already pretty smitten with this couple, you will be when you hear what Liv Tyler said about seeing Joaquin Phoenix for the first time. In 1997 Liv said “I fell in love with Joaquin the second I saw him,” reflecting two years into their relationship. The two met while filming Inventing the Abbotts and clearly fell for each other straight away but kept their relationship hidden from the cast.

It is fair to say that the breakup line “let’s stay friends” is overused and generally unachievable, but Liv and Joaquin are here to prove us all wrong. The two have stayed close friends since breaking up, supporting each other. They must have a very important bond, as Joaquin mentioned, “When Liv and I met, it was for a reason — I really needed her and she really needed me.” If that doesn’t melt your heart, we don’t know what will.

Less Than 50 Shades

It seems crazy to us to think that back to 2003, when Jamie Dornan was just the arm accessory to Keira Knightley. And yes he was a great accessory. We now know him VERY well, as the guy with a secret fun room. When they were shacked up, Knightley was at the start of her career and the press was loving her, following her (and him) wherever she went.

Ironically, part of the reason these two didn’t make it was because he couldn’t handle the attention and fame. The two tried their best to keep it low key for the almost two years they were together. Little did he realize this was all going to be in his future anyway.

His Pretty Woman

Cindy Crawford and Richard Gere are another iconic couple that was plastered across the tabloids in the early 90s. The famous duo caught the attention not only because of their big names but also their big age gap. They met in 1988 when she was 22 and already on the front of every magazine worldwide. He was already 39. The two met at a backyard BBQ of famous photographer and it took off from there.

Image: MailOnline

In 1991, Crawford and Gere boarded a private jet to Vegas to get married on a night Gere had off from filming a movie. The Sin City Chapel marriage lasted for only four years. As it turns out, Crawford felt the age gap was too hard and she wanted to feel like she was leading the way, or at least walking side by side, not behind. It seems they decided to leave each other behind and maybe it was for the best.

The Sarah and Jimmy Show

Sarah Silverman and Jimmy Kimmel were declared the Funniest Couple in the early 2000s. This comedy power couple were the high profile relationship that we loved to love. They provided us the definition of ‘rom-com’ for a great seven years, but that wasn’t enough for us, we wanted longer. Fun fact, one of the first times the two met was at Hugh Hefner’s Friars Club Roast in 2001.

We were all sad to find out that after six years together, Silverman and Kimmel called it quits. But if they weren’t able to stay together, we can at least appreciate that they are still good friends. He even interviewed her on his show and spoke about their break up! Only Kimmel and Silverman could have that conversation on live T.V and get away with the awkwardness.


This isn’t Katie Holmes’ first high profile relationship or breakup, but it is the most recent. We can all admit she is kind of like America’s sweetheart from the 90s, and everyone watched her split from ex Tom Cruise. We think everyone was shocked when in 2013 she began dating Jamie Foxx, who she actually knew and was friendly with since like back in 2006. They tried to stay under the radar, probably after all of the drama she’d been through.

Celeb Romances We Wish Would Have Lasted Longer 38
Image: Mail Online

The two were spotted around town, at different restaurants and even getting steamy on a yacht. But for the most part, we were kept in the dark majority of their six-year relationship. Yes, it was that long! Even Jamie’s daughter, Corrine, thought the two were cute together, saying that “they are so great and Katie is always so chic. They were wonderful. [It was] my dad’s first Met Gala, they’re really good, really great.” *Heart melt*.

Love, Actually

Colin Firth, our forever heartthrob, and his wife split after 22 years together. It is hard to picture Colin with anyone but Bridget Jones, but this real-life love story is a little more dramatic. Firth and ex Livia Giuggioli met in 1997 on the set of a BBC drama, Nostromo. They got married and raised two sons in Italy, sounds pretty dreamy. But things took a weird turn after the two mutually decided to separate in 2018.

Celeb Romances We Wish Would Have Lasted Longer 40

This is where the weird drama begins. We’re not sure about the details of what went down during their separation, but we do know Livia dated an Italian Journalist, Marco Brancaccia. According to Livia, he was stalking her while she and Firth were spending time apart. Either way, we are relieved to know that Firth and Livia are still friends, and raise their two sons together. Maybe there is still hope for them yet!

Many Strings Attached

January Jones and Ashton Kutcher almost seemed like America’s teen romance for a few years. Obviously they pre-date Demi Moore and Mila Kunis, dating from around 1998 to 2001. Seeing them together, they are the sweetest duo, it’s something about their matching huge grins. We think they made the ‘prom pose’ cool again, whipping it out every red carpet.

Celeb Romances We Wish Would Have Lasted Longer 33
Image: Us Weekly

The combination of the prom pose and their iconic 90s fashion had us swooning. We’re sad to say that things weren’t always red roses with them after Kutcher became jealous of Jones and some close male friends. We hate when jealousy gets in the way of cute couples, and starts the rumor-mill. We wish they could have made it last, imagine the smiles on their kids!

Human Being

We almost forgot Seal had a life before he and Heidi Klum got together, but how could we forget he and Tyra Banks. They were together for most of 1996 but kept it very under the radar. As far as we know, the two were only spotted together at the Essence Awards. We like to picture them shacked up just them two, hiding from the rest of the world and enjoying time together away from hassle and limelight.

Celeb Romances We Wish Would Have Lasted Longer 32
Image: E Online

Sources have told us that Seal’s album Human Being was inspired by his relationship with Tyra. It may not have lasted long but clearly the relationship had a significant impact on the guy! Pretty sweet that there is memorabilia from the relationship with her. Do you think it’s weird that he then years later was married to her co-worker? We guess this is fairly standard for the industry…

Now and Then

Demi Moore has definitely had many serious relationships, but we think this was her first great love. Demi and Emilio Estevez even got engaged, but no they did not say “I do” in the end. It is quite a throwback, these two met in the 80s when filming the movie that started up both of their careers, St. Elmo’s Fire. They were pretty hot and heavy for the next two years, they had periods of on again and off again but ultimately led to him on one knee.

Celeb Romances We Wish Would Have Lasted Longer 34
Image: Us Weekly

This didn’t last too much longer and in a very mature decision, the wedding was called off. Demi and Emilio decided they were just too volatile to get married and that they were better suited to be friends. The great part is that they stuck to it and remain friends to this day. On a relatively unrelated note, Emilio hates that he will forever be the guy from The Breakfast Club and wishes that he was able to change the go-to reference.

More Than Friends With Benefits

Ok so we all know that Macaulay Culkin went through a bit of a rough patch, but do you remember Mila Kunis being by his side during this time? It seems crazy to think that they were together for eight years, making her a huge part of his support system through the years where he was well, let’s just say ‘going through some stuff’. These two were strong from 2002-2011, trying to keep a low profile because of how crazy his fame was.

Celeb Romances We Wish Would Have Lasted Longer 41
Image: ET Online

According to Mila, “We grew up together, you find a steady rock in your life and that’s all you need. We have our ups and downs, but work through them.” We’re sad to know they didn’t last after going through and overcoming so much together. At least they had each other for support as they grew up and navigated the celebrity world as young kids!

Mad About You

For what seemed like an eternity, Helen Hunt and Hank Azaria were all loved up, and as Helen called Hank, “My Beloved.” These two started dating in 1994, making it all the way till 1999 when they got married in July at their home in Los Angeles. After five years together, we thought these two were a lock for life, with their seemingly down to earth lifestyle outside of the Hollywood walls.

Celeb Romances We Wish Would Have Lasted Longer 36
Image: The Globe and Mail

After tying the knot, it was less than a year that the two announced a separation. The announcement shook us all, blaming it all on ‘irreconcilable differences’ without more of an explanation. We want more of the details, but honestly, it was easier for relationships to fly under the radar back then so we haven’t got the inside scoop. In December of 2000, their marriage was officially dissolved. *Sad sigh*

As Good As It Gets

So you won’t believe how these two got together. Lara Flynn Boyle was on a date with David Spade at the time, when Nicholson walked over and without a care in the world, asked Boyle out on a date. Stuck in shock, Spade didn’t say anything and before we knew it, Boyle and Nicholson were an item. Imagine that actually happened to you! Clap or boo moment? We’re honestly not sure.

Celeb Romances We Wish Would Have Lasted Longer 37
Image: Life Online

Boyle and Nicholson had an on and off affair over many years while he was juggling her, with long time partner and two kids. As far as we have heard, Nicholson was more in love with Boyle over the years, spoiling her in every sense of the word. We think he was smitten! This is probably why he felt the need to talk to her, the first night he met her, regardless of the fact she was not alone. Love at first sight maybe?

Along Came Christine

Not many couples are ‘couple goals’ as well as ‘break up’ goals. Ben Stiller and Christine Taylor’s relationship blossomed onset in 1999 and soon enough they were frequently seen around town. Within less than a year, the two were married in an oceanfront ceremony in Hawaii. Many movies, 17 years and two kids later, we thought Stiller and Taylor were forever. And we still kind of think they are forever…

Celeb Romances We Wish Would Have Lasted Longer 45
Image: E Online

The two have still been seen holding hands and spending plenty of time together with their children. They have put their children first, making sure there is still a happy family dynamic. Theatre productions, lunch dates, and general hangs have all been on the menu for the last two years of separation. There has been no discussion of finalizing the split with a divorce so this gives us hope of the two getting back together!

Return to Me

This one starts back in 1997 where David Duchovny and Tea Leoni got married after just eight weeks of knowing each other. Generally, we believe these kinds of stories can’t work, and we guess in the end it is true, but a happy 17-year marriage is also pretty impressive after knowing each other for only eight weeks. It is also pretty cute that they actually met when they were both auditioning for the same spot on The Tonight Show.

Celeb Romances We Wish Would Have Lasted Longer 31
Image: The Atlantic

We can all agree that the circumstances around their separation were a bit touchy, with David checking into a facility for sex addiction. Not sure if we would be as understanding, but Tea still spoke about David so sweetly, “Listen, David gave me the two greatest gifts on the planet; I don’t know how I could ever hate him. We’ve always loved each other, and we adore these kids.” The two still co-parent their kids and care about each other!

When Dennis Met Meg

If you were living under a rock in the 90s, then you may have missed this headliner, tabloid frenzy relationship. Dennis Quaid and Meg Ryan met in 1987 while filming a sci-fi movie, but only started dating a year later after filming another movie together. Next thing we knew it had been nine years, and one son later, and some rumors of cheating. But we don’t want to believe any of the rumors!

Celeb Romances We Wish Would Have Lasted Longer 42
Image: PopSugar

They had the relationship and life we all wanted. The hot partner, the hot career, the style, the era, everything. As far as we could see it was 90s heaven. We find comfort knowing Quaid will always love Ryan, “Sure I still love her, I’m very fond of her and we have a lot of fun. We spent 13 good years together. We had a kid together and we shared so much: she made my life.” Phewww.

The Gentlemen

Iconic doesn’t even begin to describe Hugh Grant and Elizabeth Hurley’s 13-year relationship. They are famous both independently and together as the power couple of the decade. This wasn’t the case when the two started out though. Hurley was actually at the start of her career, a struggling actress when she first met Grant on a set in 1987. But it wasn’t long before they were both stars at the top of their careers and their love story.

Celeb Romances We Wish Would Have Lasted Longer 35
Image: Next Divas

We’re glad that this one ended amicably too, with Grant saying “but now she’s my absolute best friend — number one person I call in a crisis.” Even broken up they can’t get cuter, Hurley had the same temperament speaking about Grant “he’s still my best friend today, and I still speak with him every day.” And there’s more, you won’t believe it but they are actually the godparents for each other’s kids!! We love it, true best friends!


Jeff Goldblum and Geena Davis were set from the beginning on the big screen and in real life. The two acted together in three consecutive movies starting their careers and their relationship. They even shared a private acting coach! According to a source, it was love at first sight for these two, and an article in GQ titled the pair as “Hollywood’s Most Adorable Couple.” The most adorable couple married in 1987, after three years of dating.

Celeb Romances We Wish Would Have Lasted Longer 30
Image: Mission Local

The break up happened as quickly as the couple had started. And there is no word on what actually happened between the two so we assume it was a simple falling out of love. Goldblum and David don’t seem the drama and gossip-filled type so we hope the civil split didn’t cause too much hurt. They really were such a cute couple!

Not So Lone Soldier

We think it is safe to say that Johnny Depp and Kate Moss were the most photographed couple of the 90s. We’re not sure if it was the matching leather jackets, their stardom or just the fact that they were an incredibly attractive couple, but people became obsessed. There are still people who refuse to believe they are over. And they are over. Since 1998.

Celeb Romances We Wish Would Have Lasted Longer 18
Image: Elle Magazine

Moss who was 20 at the time and in the peak of her blossoming modeling career and Depp was 31. The two were shot all over town cuddled up for four years. There was even a brief moment with an engagement ring that had us all excited. Although they didn’t make it, they left us with an entire folio of the most photogenic couple photos of all time.

Seventh Heaven Goals

We’re not saying that we don’t love Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake, but Jessica and Chris Evans did make for the sweetest nineties duo. They even close to tying the knot! Ok ok we will back it up a little. Biel and Evans started dating in 2001 when they met both trying to make their way into Hollywood. They were always seen together, they were joined at the hip and always cuddled up.

Celeb Romances We Wish Would Have Lasted Longer 22
Image: Showbiz Cheat Sheet

These two even starred in a couple of movies together, London and Cellular. So we at least have more memorabilia from this adorable couple. We do know that the couple spoke a lot about marriage and their future, what we don’t know is why it never ended up happening! It is all a bit of a mystery to us, but the couple went their separate ways in 2006 after giving us a great five years together.

His Queen

This one is a serious throwback so let’s take a walk down memory lane. Dame Helen Mirren and Liam Neeson first met on set working together on the 1981 movie Excalibur. Neeson has said that it was love at first sight with Mirren, and that “[He] was smitten”. The two began dating straight away, getting serious quickly and were a couple from 1980 to 1985.

Celeb Romances We Wish Would Have Lasted Longer 25
Image: The Daily Telegraph

These two even lived together! Want to know the best bit? One of their favorite things to do as a couple was to go camping. Who would have guessed?! Apparently the two would get in the car, find a campsite and set up shop. Neeson would even cook Mirren breakfast in bed in the mornings. Cuteness overload.


Falling in love at 17 was fast and hard for Rob Lowe and Melissa Gilbert. Melissa said “I fell instantly, hopelessly and stupidly in love. We went from the first date to an instant couple. I felt like I was starving for Rob.” The two were inseparable for the most part, always seen around town together, at award shows and premieres. They were an ‘it’ couple in the 80s, so long ago but still we wish they lasted.

Rob even proposed to Melissa in 1986 but things got a little complicated here. Just before the wedding was set to happen, Melissa found out she was pregnant. We wish we could say that it was perfect timing and they started their cute little family. Wrong, Rob wasn’t ready to be a dad, and for that matter, probably a husband. Melissa called off the wedding and the two split to our dismay. We wish Rob grew up and played the role of daddy.

How to Lose Lance

Ok so we’re not saying that this was a great love story but it is a relationship that tickles our fancy. It seems as though Kate Hudson and Lance Armstrong only dated for a few months in 2008 when they met on vacay in the Bahamas. This happened to be right after Kate called it quits with Owen Wilson. Maybe just a cool quick rebound relationship?

They seemed to be a fun couple out on the town and we wish it lasted longer. The one thing we do want to know is, did Kate know about Lance’s scandal before it hit the media? He claims he stopped using performance enhancers before 2005 which leaves Kate not in the know. BUT you never know… Maybe Kate is just good out keeping quiet.
