10 Surprising Celebrity Coupling Moments
Celebrities pretty much only date other celebrities. Or strippers. Or their non-celebrity childhood sweetheart until they dump them for another celebrity. They even get fancy names like Bennifer and Brangelina and Kimye. But as much as these publicity stunts, I mean relationships, seem to be in the public eye, there are some celebs I was truly shocked, SHOCKED I tell ya, to find out dated each other. Here's a look at 10 surprising pairings .
Rihanna and Shia Labeouf
Rihanna apparently has a thing for d-bags! These two only went on one date, but that was enough to tell that the sparks just weren't there. Perhaps Rihanna just wasn't sexy enough. According to Shia the sexiest woman he knows is his mother. "If I could meet my mother and marry her, I would. I would be with my mother now, if she weren't my mother, as sick as that sounds." Um, okay.
Seth MacFarlane and Amanda Bynes
Back in 2008, these two were spotted all over Hollywood getting 'cozy with each other'. Which is how you make a 13 year age difference sound less yucky. But alas! The couple parted ways. Now Bynes spends her time crashing into parked cars and giving Lindsay Lohan someone to look down upon.
Ashley Olsen and Lance Armstrong
Speaking of creepy age differences...WTF? Yup! These two were WTFly hooking up in 2007. I'm thinking Armstrong should be stripped of his dignity along with his 7 Tour de France titles.
Moby and Natalie Portman
Wait..wha?? These two make no sense. I guess they're both vegan?? Is that a strong relationship foundation? I mean I prefer dating guys who like hamburgers...so maybe. But the relationship was doomed from the start. No couple can survive fanboy hate. Moby said at the time, "It’s made me a target of a lot of nerd wrath. You don’t date Luke Skywalker’s mom and not have them hate your guts.” You'd think seeing that she dated a nerd like you would've given them A New Hope! ZING!
Fergie and Justin Timberlake
These two dated when Timberlake was 16 and Fergie was 23. I guess this is legal in Disney World. But only for Disney stars!!!! Don't get any ideas Pedobear!
Pete Wentz and Michelle Trachtenberg
These two were dating before Wentz dumped her to so stupidly marry Ashlee Simpson. Total downgrade amirite? It was rumored that the two hooked up again after Wentz and Simpson divorced. I'm sure Ashlee was NOT happy about that. In fact I'm pretty sure when she heard the news she danced an awkward little jig to distract from what was really going on. How's that for a super old reference?
Jay Z and Rosario Dawson
Just think! If it had worked out with these two there would be no BLUE IVY! And I don't wanna live in a world without a baby who wears an 800 dollar pair of shoes when she can't even friggin' walk yet.
Nicky Hilton and Ian Somerhalder
Wait...I wanna fantasy date Damon or whatever his real name is!! I don't wanna have Hilton sloppy seconds, even in my dream world! GAAAHH!!! Nicky's less herpe-covered than Paris, right? Cause I don't know if I can give up Damon dreaming.
Josh Hutcherson and Victoria Justice
Before he was pining away for Katniss as Peeta in The Hunger Games, Hutcherson was smitten with Victorious star Victoria Justice. They broke up and it was recently rumored that Hutcherson was hooking up with another Victorious star, Ariana Grande. Obsessed with Nickelodeon much, Josh? You better watch out Miranda Cosgrove!
Sandra Bullock and Ryan Gosling
Awww... America's sweetheart and Canada's finest import! How sweet! I can't even be mad at her for dating my one true love. She's Sandra Bullock! I can be mad at her for making one of the most colossal downgrades in world history though. How you gonna go from Ryan Gosling to Jesse James!?! Talk about your blind side.
