Ever wonder what the world would look like if Brangelina were never a thing?
By the time a celeb reaches mega-fame, it's easy to not remember their past flings (since we probably weren't paying attention before). Or maybe — just like our own relationships — there are certain couples that dated that we just want to pretend didn't (memory block, anyone?)
Either way, here are 10 celeb couples that we can't believe were ever a thing:
In a recent interview with Cosmopolitan, Hilary hinted at losing her virginity to this half of the Madden twins, saying, “I had a 26 year old boyfriend. So everyone can make their own assumptions about what I was doing.”
Long before Dornan’s recent 50 Shades fame, back in 2000 these two were a definite pair for TWO years. He says that their time together taught him a lot about the drawbacks of fame, and it’s rumored that they still avoid each other to this day at events.
Although MOST people thought Sheeran’s “Don’t” was aimed at Taylor Swift, before it was obvious that they’re nothing more than besties, it’s been pretty much decided on that the song is about Goulding. The pair met while touring and became a thing, before — well, as the song suggests — she moved on to someone else (i.e. Nial Hornan).
These two dated for a bit in early 1990, until the “Like a Virgin” singer came out with her book Sex, in which Robert Van Winkle (ok, we can see why he chose to go by Vanilla Ice instead) was “hurt to be an unwitting part of this slutty package,” as he told News of the World.
Apparently the book showed images of Madonna naked with Vanilla Ice — as well as many other men — and Ice just wasn’t gonna be made to look like a FOOL!
Long before reality TV shows, Mariah, or Kanye, these two dated one another. Cannon said during his 2014 BBC Radio 1Xtra interview that the reason for their split was because Kim lied about her now infamous sex tape with Ray J.
Seems that turned out well for Kim.
These two met while co-starring in Murder By Numbers in 2002 and dated for about a year. Ryan has given Sandra (as well as Rachel McAdams) title off “two of the greatest girlfriends of all time” in an interview with UK-based newspaper The Times.
Juliette lived pretty much every teenage girls dream while she was a teenager, and got to date one of the hottest men in Hollywood. They dated for THREE years — before either had hit ultimate stardom.
These two apparently still get along OK (even if they don’t really talk), as Lewis shouted out to Brad on Instagram this past December, calling him her “old friend.”
At the ripe young age of 23, Cruise dated 39 year old Cher before he was a huge Hollywood heartthrob. Cher has named him one of her top 5 lovers ever. But apparently she wasn’t enough to make Tom jump around on couches.
