12 Random Celeb Couples You Blocked From Your Memory
You know one way celebrities really are just like us?
They’ve dated some random as fuck people in the past.
Here are 12 of my favorite WTF celeb couples, in no particular order except that I saved the best for last.
1. Avril Lavigne and Brody Jenner
Shortly after filing for a divorce from her Canadian punk rock husband who fronted the often forgot about Sum 41, Avril Lavigne met Brody Jenner and fell in love.
Couples tattoos: just say no.
2. Britney Spears and Colin Farrell
After she broke up with Justin but before she started dating K Fed, Britney Spears and Colin Farrell dated in 2003. According to a source, “they were all over each other back then,” although the same source adds, “I don’t think either was thinking straight.”
The 2000s were a rough decade for all of us.
3. Selena Gomez and Taylor Lautner
Believe it or not, before Selena dated Bieber and Taylor Lautner started dating Taylor Swift, the two young rising stars dated each other.
Isn’t it cute how Taylor got Selena’s sloppy seconds? What are BFFs for, right?
4. Lindsay Lohan and Aaron Carter
In 2014, this relationship brought about one of the biggest celebrity feuds of the decade.
After dating Hillary Duff for “like a year and a half,” in his own words, Aaron Carter “got a little bored” and “started getting to know Lindsay, dating Lindsay.”
Aaron eventually broke things off with Lilo and went back to dating Hillary, which meant that the feud between Hillary and Lilo continued for a while, entertaining the masses who in the 2000s, probs to def had the word “tasty” written on their asses.
5. Kim Kardashian and Nick Cannon
Back when Kim K was still just Paris Hilton’s BFF, she met a super cute dude who was much more famous than her at the time called Nick Cannon.
They dated from September 2006 to January 2007 before Nick dumped her after she lied to him about having a sex tape with her ex Ray J.
6. Ashton Kutcher and Brittany Murphy
Ashton and Brittany met in 2003, on the set of their tacky but allegedly brilliant rom com “Just Married.” At the time, they both walked around wearing matching wedding rings so people would gossip about them, which led some people to call BS on their relationship entirely.
A few months later, they broke up and Ashton went on to date Demi and Brittany got married to some guy screenwriter named Simon Monjack.
7. Ryan Gosling and Sandra Bullock
They started dating in 2009, after meeting each other on set of their much forgotten film “Murder By Numbers.” At the time, Ryan was far from being the sex icon he is today, so you gotta hand it to Sandra for recognizing his budding hotness and getting it in before the rest of Hollywood.
8. Scarlett Johansson and Jack Antonoff
This absolutely blows my mind, but back in high school, Lena Dunham’s current dorky ass boyfriend dated international hottie Scarlett Johansson for a year.
This is the same guy that’s in a band called “fun.” With a period at the end.
When Lena Dunham first discovered the news she thought she “was hallucinating,” and I totally get that.
Discovering that I accidentally grabbed the weed butter instead of the regular butter to put on my toast this morning sounds a lot more plausible than learning Scarlett Johansson and Jack Antonoff used to be in the same league.
9. Miley Cyrus and Nick Jonas
Even though she tried to keep it a secret at the time, in 2008, a year after they broke up, Miley admitted that, “Nick and I loved each other. We still do, but we were in love with each other. for two years he was basically my 24/7. We were arguing a lot, and it really wasn’t fun.”
Was it because he got jealous, Miley? Because we heard that’s a problem of his.
10. Kylie Jenner and Cody Simpson
Although they didn’t confirm it at the time, Kylie Jenner and Cody Simpson started dating in 2011. Although neither of them has ever really talked about it, in 2014 Simpson joked that things didn’t work out because his first name didn’t start with a K.
Wouldn’t be surprised, actually. We’ve all seen how far out of the Kardashian inner circle Caitlyn’s fallen these days.
11. Cher and Tom Cruise
In the mid-80s, back when Tom Cruise was still just a heartthrob and not that crazy guy in a cult, he had a “hot and heavy” relationship with Cher.
Seriously. In 2013 she said that Tom would be in her top 5 list of lovers.
The world never ceases to amaze me.
12. Colin Farrell and Elizabeth Taylor
I saved the best for last, guys.
Even though Elizabeth Taylor was in her late 70s by the time she and Colin Farrell met, they still managed to have an almost two-year-long “romantic relationship.” During an appearance on The Ellen Degeneres Show in 2013, Farrell told the story of how the two first met: at a hospital. He was there because his son was being born and she was there because a stent as being put into her heart.
“I got home a few days later with Henry [his son],” Farrell recalled, “And I was thinking about Elizabeth and how she was doing and I called my publicist and I said I bumped into some people of Elizabeth Taylor’s, some friends of hers, could I send her some flowers? And my publicist said that’s funny because I’m looking at an orchid from Elizabeth Taylor for you.”
A week or so later, he went over to visit her and even though they never consummated their relationship, they used to talk on the phone for hours every night.
“She wasn’t much of a sleeper at night like I’m not,” Farrell continued telling Ellen, “so at two o’clock in the morning I’d call her and the nurse would answer the phone. I’d say, ‘Is she awake?’ I’d be on the phone and I’d hear, ‘Hello?’ And I’d go ‘how’s it going’ and we’d talk for a half an hour, an hour into the wee hours. Really cool. I just adored her, she was a spectacular, spectacular woman. I wanted to be [husband] number eight, but we ran out of road.”
That’s right: spoiler alert, she died.
He was one of the few non-family members invited to the funeral, where he read a poem.
Is your mind satisfactorily blown yet?
