23 Celeb Couples You Didn't Realize Were Ever a Thing

There are some celebrity couples that the world obsesses over: Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, Beyoncé and Jay Z, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West... the list could go on. Then there are celebrity couples that somehow fly stealthily under the radar, never quite reaching Power Couple status or even acquiring their very own couple name. Sometimes the flings between these couples make sense — other times, they feel weird as ever.

Here's a list of the celebrity couples you probably forgot were ever a thing.

by Kaitlin Reilly

Sandra Bullock & Ryan Gosling

The guy behind the “Hey, girl” meme and America’s Sweetheart dated from 2002 to 2003 after meeting on the set of their film Murder By Numbers.

Megan Fox & David Gallagher

Yep, Fox dated one of the Camden brothers! Their relationship started shortly after Fox scored roles in films like Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen but before she decided to go easy on the self tanner.

Britney Spears & Colin Farrell

This happened in 2003, when Farrell was the biggest bad boy of the ’00s and Spears was just breaking out of her “just-this-side-of-innocent” image.

Avril Lavigne & Brody Jenner

The character that Brody Jenner plays on The Hills (aka BRODY JENNER) dated exclusively “LA-types” like Kristin Cavallari and L.C. and that girl McKaela who isn’t a thing anymore. But towards the end of the run on the show, he was actually dating Canadian rocker Lavigne.

Nick Cannon & Kim Kardashian

I know, right? But, apparently, it’s true: Cannon admitted that he dumped Kardashian after she lied about her sex tape.

Macaulay Culkin & Mila Kunis

These two dated forever, basically. The Home Alone star dated the Ted actress for eight years before they split in 2010.

Thankfully, Reynolds didn’t have a scathing breakup song written about him.

Hilary Duff & Joel Madden

Duff was just coming out of her Disney days and Madden was the lead singer of pseudo punk band Good Charlotte. There was a big age difference between them (she was 18; he was 26) but it worked for a surprisingly long time.

Paul Wesley & Torrey Devitto

These two weren’t just dating — they were married for two years — and yet many people still don’t realize that the Vampire Diaries co-stars were ever together. Allegedly, Wesley is now dating Originals star Phoebe Tonkin.

Minka Kelly & Donald Faison

I had no idea that the Friday Night Lights star and the Scrubs alum ever dated, but boy were they cute together. They dated for about a year and broke up in 2005.

Kieran Culkin & Anna Paquin

Hey, another Culkin brother! Rumor has it that Culkin dated the future True Blood star in 2005 after starring opposite her in a play.

Winona Ryder & Jimmy Fallon

Whether these two officially “dated” or were just maybe-more-than-friends is unclear, but the two spent a lot of time together in the early 2000s, which is weird enough in my book.

Matthew Morrison & Kristen Bell

Both attended NYU where, according to Bell, they went on a few dates. Also according to Bell, she tunes into Glee just for Morrison — fingers crossed she gets to guest star at some point in the final season!

David Moscow & Kerry Washington

Washington dated Moscow for four years before breaking off their engagement. Who is David Moscow, you ask? Well, you may know him as the actor who played the younger version of Tom Hanks in the movie Big!
