10 Most Fascinating Couples Of The Year

Justin Timberlake Jessica Biel

Which headline-making celebrity couples made our 2010 list? Read on to find out.

7. Prince William and Kate Middleton: The two got engaged last month after nearly a decade of dating, and ever since the media has exploded with rampant rumors, speculations, and even possible baby names (they’re not even expecting a child yet!) Will and Kate are set to be married next April at the Westminster Abbey in London, but their lives are already quickly changing. With a frenzy of new stories about them nearly every day—a week ago, it was reported that once they’re married Camilla (future stepmother-in-law of Kate) will have to curtsey to the duchess / princess, as Kate will be considered the second most powerful female royal (just after the Queen) but only if William is with her. All these royal rituals seem so confusing and bit daunting for a young couple who should be excited about planning for their wedding, which, however difficult, they still seem to be pulling off to some degree (it’s been rumored that Snoop Dogg may even sing William’s bachelor party.) If this indeed happens, we hope to see plenty of pictures of Snoop in wedding attire sippin’ on gin and juice. 

8. Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas: These two love birds have been together a decade, and their enduring relationship is proof that love knows no age. Douglas, who battled and beat cancer this year is twenty-five years older than Zeta-Jones, which would often cause onlookers to deem her a trophy wife and him her sugar daddy. But with Catherine’s independent career success, it’s obvious she needs no sugar daddy and is simply and completely in love.

9. Scarlett Johansson and Ryan Reynolds: GQ named Scarlett "Babe of the Year" and just two days later, People named hubby Ryan the "Sexiest Man Alive." Then, MTV showed us what their baby would look like. Adorable. But seeing as both actors are still churning out lots of movie (and theater) roles, it doesn’t seem like they’ll be slowing down anytime soon to have a baby, however much we want them to.

10. Katy Perry and Russell Brand: She’s now officially Katy Perry Brand and, career-wise, she's never been hotter. Her newest album Teenage Dream went straight to the top upon its release, and she (and her boobs) have been making appearances all over prime-time television (SNL, Sesame Street, The Simpsons). And! These two just got hitched. On a recent appearance on the Paul O Grady Live Show, Katy said that she likens their marriage to the I Love Lucy Show, saying "I’m Lucy. And he’s Lucy. There’s a lot of Lucys." They are both a little odd—Katy once sported fake nails with photos on them of Russell's face - and just a few months before their marriage, Russell was arrested for kicking a paparazzo at LAX. Katy later posted on Twitter, "if you cross the line & try and put a lens up my dress, my fiancé will do his job & protect me." Russell may just have his work cut out for him now, as Katy’s popularity is surging, but his kookiness alone may be enough to keep the paparazzi at a manageable distance.Ph
