This could be the year some single celebrities find love—and we’d like to help!
With a new year comes all the exciting possibilities for celeb hook-ups, breakups, and make-ups. Instead of waiting around to see who LiLo will end up with next, or on what poor woman Jon Gosselin will set his sights, we've decided to play matchmaker with some celebs who we think would get along...well, famously.
Hugh Grant and Jennifer Aniston - This one seems like a no-brainer, right? Jen needs a nice guy to settle down with, and Hugh is the most dashing, charming, handsome bachelor Hollywood has to offer whose last name isn't Clooney. It's about time for these two sweethearts to cast themselves in their very own live action rom-com.
Owen Wilson and Rachel McAdams - The last few years have been rough for Owen, but with the success of 2008's Marley & Me, as well as recent parts in Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian and Fantastic Mr. Fox, the man once dubbed "The Butterscotch Stallion" seems to be poised for a professional and personal comeback. We think he and Wedding Crashers co-star Rachel McAdams (10 years his junior) had such great on-screen chemistry that it would be a snap converting that to off-screen love. Although Owen might have his work cut out for him, since Rachel recently proclaimed that she intends to stay single for a while.
Ryan Gosling and Reese Witherspoon - A lot of folks have been waiting for Rachel McAdams to get back with ex Ryan Gosling, but after two failed attempts, it doesn't seem like their relationship will ever have the staying power like that of their characters from The Notebook. He's always had a fondness for older women, and Reese Witherspoon doesn't mind her men a bit younger. (Ryan's the same age as her most recent love, Jake Gyllenhaal.) They're also both two of the most respected young actors in the biz. And Ryan has always cared more about "the work" than fame, so we doubt he'd be as threatened by Reese's box office successes as her ex-husband Ryan Phillippe was.
Jake Gyllenhaal and Anne Hathaway - Jake reportedly wanted to get married, which is why former flame Reese dumped him. Instead of rebounding with a bunch of pop tarts or a Megan Fox type, why not just try again with a down-to-earth gal who might be more receptive to settling down? Anne Hathaway seems like the perfect choice, especially since she and Jake looked so good together in Brokeback Mountain. Let's just forget the part about their marriage being a sham in that movie, shall we?
Jason Segel and Lizzy Caplan - Jason has been quite the serial dater since his breakout hit Forgetting Sarah Marshall painted him as the sweet, sensitive type. But he's turning 30 this year, and the eterna-bachelor lifestyle may start to wear thin. We don't think he should necessarily start thinking about settling down, but he could at least try for some type of committed relationship. He probably needs a girl like him—someone outgoing who likes to party and have fun. But we're hoping those rumors about him hooking up with Lindsay Lohan were just that. She's likes to party TOO much. No, Jason would be better off with LiLo's Mean Girls co-star, Lizzy "Janis Ian" Caplan. Jason and Lizzy actually played a couple once before on Freaks & Geeks, although his character wasn't really into hers. But since Jason couldn't make it work with his F&G ex Linda Cardellini (neither on- nor off-screen), perhaps he should give his second choice a second try.
David Cook and Kelly Clarkson - These two American Idol favorites haven't had much luck in the romance department. That, or they're just really good at keeping their respective relationships quiet—aside from David's brief fling with Kimberly Caldwell. But David and Kelly seem like a perfect match. They're both the same age, have similar musical tastes and styles, and were raised with down-home, old-fashioned values (David is from Missouri and Kelly is from Texas). These two could make beautiful music together, both on and off the pop charts. But there is one thing they should never do together: a From David To Kelly movie. Yikes.
