Couples We Love to Hate

They’re rich, famous and drop dead gorgeous. They make you sick but you can’t help but fall in love with them, or at least the image of them plastered on the cover of People or on the Hot Hollywood “It” List on E! They’re the couples we love to hate. And yet they have managed to find love in the deep trenches of the Hollywood dating pool where everyone dates each other.  Some couples last longer than expected but usually end just as quickly as they began. Of course there’s the relationships we thought would never crack under the lens of La La land. We were shocked when America’s sweetheart Meg Ryan left Dennis Quaid. We stoppped believing in miracles when Tom Cruise left Nicole Kidman and the term “you’ve been cruised” was invented. We wept for Jennifer Aniston after reading about her controversial divorce in Vanity Fair.  And let’s not even get into Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe. Yet with all these failed Hollywood unions, we at celebgawking refuse to be jaded.  The beautiful people will still love the idea of falling in love with other beautiful people.  Jessica Alba and her hubby Cash Warren are one of our favorites and on the top of our  ridiculously good looking  list. Here’s a few other couples we have absolutely fallen in love with. 

Gisele & Tom Brady at Met Musuem of Art Costume Institute Gala

Gisele & Tom Brady at Met Musuem of Art Costume Institute Gala


The story of this Hollywood love triangle is right out of  a Jackie Collins  novel. Star athlete (Tom Brady) breaks up with actress (Bridget Moynihan) after a three year courtship. All-American athlete starts dating the richest supermodel in the world (Gisele Bunchden) only to find out his ex is soon to be his babies mama. But love does conquer all as Tom Brady and Gisele Bunchden proved when they recently tied the knot in a small ceremony in Santa Monica.

Ridiculously cute..it's the Disney couple of the year!

Ridiculously cute..it's the Disney couple of the year!

Just because Zac Efron just did a steamy photshoot  with a woman who wasn’t his real life girlfriend doesn’t mean their over, just that Zac is ready to be free from his young man persona! Zac Efron + Vanessa Hudgens = very adorable. These new kids on the block have killer looks and killer bank accounts and neither is over the age of 25! Yes, life is not fair.

Gossip Girl's Blake Lively & on screen and off screen boy toy Penn Badgley

Gossip Girl's Blake Lively & Penn Badgley

They are castmates on Gossip Girl  and off screen they know how to rock a poolside cabana. Their characters on tv may have broken up and moved on to new love interests but in real life Blake Lively and Penn Badgley  are still tight. They also have very cool names.

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner are royalty in Hollywood relationships

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner are royalty in Hollywood relationships

First there was Bennifer I but Celebgawking is a much bigger fan of Bennifer II. We all know the media frenzy surrounding Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez and to this day we still don’t understand how those two ended shacking up. Meanwhile Jennifer Garner married and divorced fellow Felicity actor Scott Foley only to quietly begin dating her Alias co-star Michael Vartan (we have seen him in person and yes he is that hot). The low key courtship between Affleck and Garner resulted in a mammoth size diamond from Harry Winston, two fab kids and a Affleck’s directorial debut for Gone Baby Gone.

She was the Princess Bride and he’s the chain smoking guy with a chip on his shoulder that has crawled through the trenches of Hollywood. After 11 years of marriage Robin Wright Penn & Sean Penn almost called it quits.  With a divorce looming in the future, Penn brought a very well-known model as his date to last year’s Oscars. But this year not only did Sean Penn bring home an Oscar for Best Actor in his performance of Milk, but had his stunning wife by his side. He didn’t mention her in his acceptance speech but Robin didn’t seem to care. We guess that’s Sean just being Sean.
Reese Witherspoon & Jake Gyllenhaal are so damn cute

Reese Witherspoon & Jake Gyllenhaal are so damn cute

Reese Witherspoon  understands the saying “love hurts” pretty well. We all know about the father of her two children and the supposed rumors about his infidelity with his  Stop-Loss co-star.  But then she met Jake Gyllenhaal and suddenly her world turned into puppies and fields full of posies. The couple are constantly photographed holding hands looking like a Hallmark greeting card waiting to happen.
Fergie & Josh Duhamel

We’ve seen these two in person at a restaurant in Brentwood and they look just as incredibly hip and happy in person as they do on the pages of INtouch Weekly. Seriously. Josh Duhamel and Fergie claim that their normality is what keeps them grounded as a couple.
Sarah Jessica Parker & Christopher Broderick

Sarah Jessica Parker & Matthew Broderick

Sarah Jessica Parker and Christopher Broderick are the pair we’d most like to have as next door neighbors.  We’d also kill to see the inside of SJP’s closet.
Rachel McAdams & Josh Lucas

Rachel McAdams & Josh Lucas

We thought Rachel McAdams & Ryan Gosling  would find a way to work things out but apparently Josh Lucas  killed that opportunity. But can we blame her? The two have been spotted everywhere from Washington, D.C. making out during the Inaugural festivities to hanging out in Toronto, Canada.

Brangelina, need we say more?

Yes, we are tired of Angelina Jolie & Bradd Pitt too, but they have all the criteria. Lots of money-check. Gorgeous-check. Enough children to make up their own united nations-double check. Dual Oscar nods in 2009-check. It will be interesting how long these two last.

  1. Reese Witherspoon and Jake Gyllenhaal are a fake, fauxmance couple.

  2. People who are mesmerized by Hollywood stars and their love life are simply fantasizing. There is something very unreal about movie stars who can’t tell the difference between what they act out on the screen and what they feel in real life. The test of true love is the ability to accept both the good and the bad, and use crises as opportunities to strengthen the relationship. This is what happens in my new novel “Getting Enough.” A middle-aged married couple can move towards a loving relationship once they stop typecasting each other. For more information, kindly consult the following website: http://www.strategicbookpublishing.com/GettingEnough.html.

  3. Don’t forget about Kate Beckinsdale and her incredibly hot (!) director husband either. These two stopped in a restaurant I was managing and even I couldn’t believe how truly beautiful they both were!
    Low key, out of the tabloids and refreshingly nice. Let’s hope this is a couple that ends up staying together:)

  6. […] goodbye to 2009 took place all around the world and we found  hard bodies hitting the beach and couples canoodling. While some starlets rang in the New Year at a swank soiree others celebrated in their swimsuits. […]
