Kristen Stewart Robert Pattinson favorite couple
We love them and don't want them to break up, ever.

Popeater readers voted Ellen DeGeneres and Portia De Rossi their favorite couple of 2009, and we wholeheartedly agree, because those two glorious ladies are adorable. But this was not just the year of the lesbian. There are a few other lovely famous couples that we followed devotedly, and who repaid us by being completely fantastic.


Kristen Stewart & Robert Pattinson

But it was the love affair between star and helmer that truly captivated us. They just look so damn cute together, with their tweed and their ironic hats. Is Sherlock Holmes Gay?

Anna Paquin & Stephen Moyer

America's other vampire sweethearts flew significantly under the Twilight radar, and they captivated the imaginations of a whole different sector of celeb-watchers, notably, the folks who like their vampires naked and shagging rather than icy and celibate. The two began dating quietly during filming of True Blood's first season, and got engaged in AugustOn-Set Love Lessons: Stephen Moyer And Anna Paquin
