Check out the 15 weirdest celebrity couples from 2014, and get excited for what 2015 brings!
Celebrity relationships rarely last very long, so every year, we're presented with a new crop of couples to gossip about. Sometimes celebrity pairs just make perfect sense - for example, Chris Pratt and Anna Faris (could they actually be any cooler?). And sometimes, the couple is so cute that nothing else even matters, like Britney Spears and her new boyfriend Charlie Ebersol.
So, yes, there are plenty of adorable celebrity couples out there. But then there are the couples that make us all collectively go, "Um, WTF? How did THAT happen??" There were a lot of couples like that in 2014. At some moments, the celebrity dating rumors were so absurd that we had to wonder if they were playing a joke on us - like when rumors were swirling about Selena Gomez and Orlando Bloom (???!!!!) or the recent gossip about Kendall Jenner and Chris Brown (please, girl, no).
Check out the 15 weirdest celebrity couples from 2014, and get excited for what kind of pairs the new year will bring!
1. Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden
When the rumors about Cameron Diaz dating Benji Madden started, everyone laughed a little and thought, "That will never last." Well, these two are attempting to prove everyone wrong — because Benji proposed to Cameron! We never would have seen her going from Justin Timberlake to Benji Madden, but okay.
2. Charlize Theron and Sean Penn
This has to be the most confusing couple of 2014. We've all always thought of Charlize Theron as a gorgeous goddess, and Sean Penn ... well, not so much. These two don't seem compatible in any way, and yet here it is, almost a year later since they were rumored to start dating, and they're still together. Who would have thought?
3. Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Martin
First, Chris Martin shocked us with the news of his "conscious uncoupling" with Gwyneth Paltrow. And then he shocked us with reports that he was dating Jennifer Lawrence. What?! Despite the fact that these two are obviously each other's type physically (he's into tall blondes, she's into lanky Brits), they just don't seem like a match in any other way. While Chris has always seemed more mellow, Jennifer has always seemed outgoing and fun. Oh, and what about the huge age gap? Definitely one of the top weirdest couples of 2014.
4. Zac Efron and Michelle Rodriguez
5. Robert Pattinson and FKA Twigs
When Robert Pattinson started dating FKA Twigs a few months ago, the Internet freaked out. Half the people were upset because they're racist and didn't like that Rob's new girlfriend was black (which was a really awful time for humanity), and half the people were just confused because Rob literally could not pick someone more different than his ex, Kristen Stewart. The couple still seems a bit off, but if they get along, then great!
6. Justin Bieber and Miranda Kerr
This had to be the weirdest celebrity couple rumor of 2014. Who ever would have thought, in a million years, that Miranda Kerr would rebound from Orlando Bloom with someone like Justin Bieber?! Never mind the age difference — Miranda is a gorgeous, talented supermodel with a family, and Justin is an immature, bratty kid who now has bleached hair! There were multiple rumors about these two, and it made everyone uncomfortable.
7. Adriana Lima and Justin Bieber
Okay, this might actually be the weirdest celebrity dating rumor of 2014 ... or at least it's definitely tied with the Bieber/Miranda Kerr one. After Justin posted this picture with Adriana Lima from Cannes a few months ago, rumors started swirling about the two of them hooking up a few times. What?!?! The news is almost too crazy to process.
8. Kate Mara and Shia LaBeouf
Although it was never confirmed that this odd pair was dating, it definitely seemed that way when they were spotted getting cozy at Disneyland in October. What man and woman go to Disneyland together if they're not dating?! The weirdest thing about this alleged couple is that Kate Mara seems like she has it all together, and Shia LaBeaouf ... does not.
9. Katy Perry and Riff Raff
When Katy Perry showed up at the MTV VMA's this past summer with Riff Raff on her arm, everyone was like, "Whaaaattt??" Even their outfits — a denim-on-denim tribute to Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake - could take away our surprise that Katy had apparently gone from John Mayer to Riff Raff. If they were dating, it didn't last long, which isn't surprising.
10. Zac Efron and Sami Miro
Zac Efron and Sami Miro reportedly started dating in September, and although they haven't confirmed their relationship, there have been a ton of pictures of them on dates. There was even a picture of them walking out of a pet supply store with a black puppy! After years of obsessing over Zac and Vanessa Hudgen's relationship, then being confused about his fling with Michelle Rodriguez, it was surprising to see him with someone like Sami Miro, who isn't famous and certainly seems very different than his exes.
11. Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello
When Sofia Vergara confirmed that her long-term relationship with ex-fiance Nick Loeb was over, we knew it wouldn't be long before another Hollywood hottie snatched her up. We were right — over the summer, Sofia started dating Joe Manganiello, and we all exploded over their hotness. But we also scratched our heads because they seemed like SUCH a random pair. Can two people this gorgeous actually date? It's not fair!
12. Miley Cyrus and Patrick Schwarzenegger
13. Lea Michele and Matthew Paetz
The most surprising thing about the new relationship between Lea Michele and her new boyfriend Matthew Paetz? That he is a former gigolo. After her relationship with Glee co-star Cory Monteith, this pairing just seemed a little ... strange.
14. Katy Perry and Diplo
Shortly after the rumors about Riff Raff, Katy Perry was spotted with music producer and DJ Diplo. It seems like the two have been together since about August. It also seems like Katy has a very specific type: musician who makes everyone wonder what the heck she's doing. Diplo didn't seem like a super great person when he dissed Taylor Swift's booty on Twitter.
15. Ashley Olsen and Bennett Miller
Considering the fact that her twin sister has been dating someone much older than her for a while now, we shouldn't have all been as confused as we were about the news of Ashley Olsen and Bennett Miller dating. But we are! Ashley started dating the Moneyball director sometime over the summer, and we can't help but be surprised at the fact that he's nearly 20 years older than her.
