8 Celebrities I Honestly Didn’t Know Were a Couple


We can forget sometimes that celebrities are just like anybody else. They have had loves and heartaches of their own, relationships that can be temporary, or romances worthy of their own. The difference is that their personal lives are generally revealed in the newspapers and even the tiniest aspects of their love stories we all end up learning.

1. Salma Hayek and Edward Norton

Salma Hayek and Edward Norton experienced a wonderful moment in their respective careers as actors by the late 1990s. At the same time, they maintained a romantic relationship which few people today recall. Their romance began in 1999, and wasn’t over until 2003. They have managed to protect their private lives very effectively during this time. They made very few public appearances which may explain why we are no longer really aware of them as a couple. Both didn’t encourage themselves to be seen together in front of the cameras, except, of course, when it involved filming a movie, like working on the Frida movie together.

2. Johnny Depp and Kate Moss

They started dating when she was twenty and he was 31. Depp was already a very successful actor and Moss was a successful young model with everyone at his feet. They had a relationship marked by controversy, mayhem and greed that culminated in damage worth thousands of dollars worth of a broken hotel room. They agreed to partway in 1997, after nearly 3 years in a relationship. They were, however, seen again together at the Cannes Film Festival in 1998.

3. Monica Bellucci and Vincent Cassel

In European cinema, both are used as big shots. Romantic love emerged when the film, The Apartment, was being filmed in 1996. We were even married for 14 years and had 2 daughters, but in 2013 they eventually divorced. Because of being an iconic couple in the world of cinema and their unprecedented success, their split made it into all the tabloids at the time.

4. Natalie Portman and Gael Garcia Bernal

Natalie Portman and Gael Garcia Bernal dated in 2006, and the 2 could be seen together at different locations during this period, such as the China Club in Berlin or the 2007 US Open Tennis Championships. However, since then, in 2012, Portman married French dancer and choreographer Benjamin Millepied, first dating him in 2009, and later Bernal would move on to a relationship with Argentine actress Dolores Fonzi between 2008 and 2014.

5. Jennifer Garner and Scott Foley

The young actors had just begun making a name for themselves in the film industry when they met in 1998. We had been working on the Felicity show together. We got married in the year 2000 when both were 28. Then Jennifer became a major star, spreading rumours in 2003 that they had agreed to split up. Even though they said it was all done in a nice manner, Garner said she and Foley were both “just Hollywood victims.”

6. Julia Roberts and Kiefer Sutherland

The film in which these two actors shared credits and fell into the jaws of love was Flatliners. They have got engaged and should have been married in Los Angeles on June 14, 1991. But Julia Roberts became a real runaway bride when 2 days before she cancelled the wedding and ran away to Ireland with Jason Patric, a friend of Kiefer’s. Kiefer spoke about it in 2016 and said he appreciated the bravery his then-girlfriend had when she made the call. Not everybody should dare to …

7. Uma Thurman and Gary Oldman

Gary Oldman entered into a relationship with actress Uma Thurman in 1990, soon after his marriage with his first wife, Lesley Manville, had ended. The couple had been married and lived together by the start of the next year. All the same, the relationship ended 11 months later. She has reportedly broken up with him by writing a letter saying he couldn’t live with. Thurman later said putting up with him requires a special form of a woman.

8. Sofia Vergara and Tom Cruise

Tom Cruise and Sofia Vergara were dating for some time in 2005. But as the actor’s official biography revealed, this was not just any relationship for Tom, because he did everything to get to know her and then wanted to marry her. Cruise ‘s belief in Scientology, however, was something that Sofia had not expressed, and it put tension between the 2 until they split up.

9.  Scarlett Johansson and Ryan Reynolds

Scarlett Johansson and Ryan Reynolds were a celebrity couple from Hollywood about a decade ago, announcing their engagement in 2008 and marrying in September of the same year. Their marriage lasted just under 3 years, after which their differences proved too great to continue. They announced they ‘d separated in 2010 and finalized their divorce in 2011.
