19 Celebrities That You Never Knew Dated

In the crazy world of La La Land, everyone's hooked up with everyone right? Pretty much. But some couples that were legit "a thing" might have gone unnoticed by a lot of us. And because we're nosy f*ckers here's a list  -  from the cute to the downright strange -  celebs that you never knew dated.

1. Ryan Gosling & Sandra Bullock


Although there was 16 years between this pair, they dated from 2002 to 2003 and Bullock was said to be devastated when it ended. Can't blame her, can ya?

2. James Arthur & Kimberley Garner



Who would have ever thought that the fella who used to live in a bedsit would be hooking up with Made In Chelsea posh totty Kimberley Garner? Arthur had revealed she was his celeb crush and it looks like that caught her attention!

3. Paul Rudd & Jennifer Aniston


They played lovers in The Object Of My Affection in 1998 and then started dating. Rudd is so adorable that we can't really blame her. They split soon after but are still good mates, even appearing in Wanderlust together in recent years.


4. Cameron Diaz & Jared Leto


This Hollywood babe and 30 Seconds To Mars musician dated from 1999 to 2003. They were another couple who got engaged but called it quits soon after. Diaz clearly has a type though -  she's now married to Good Charlotte rocker Benji Madden.

5. Josh Hutcherson & Vanessa Hudgens



They met on set of Journey 2: Mysterious Island and started to date during filming. Sadly they parted ways before the movie was released meaning that they still had to do promo together. Awks. Hutcherson was open about his heartbreak when he said, "It hurts more when you’re ready for something to keep going and the other person isn’t." Ouch.

6. Janet Jackson & Matthew McConaughey


After meeting at the 2002 Grammys, Jackson admitted to their having a brief fling. McConaughey's version of the story went like, "she's a dear lady, but we're just friends." Sure, Matthew we all believe that.


7. Jamie Dornan & Keira Knightley


Keira was Mr Grey's first serious GF. After meeting at a photo-shoot in 2003, the couple dated for two years. As a result of Knightley's career taking off they ended up splitting, with her since referring him as her first love.

8. Sarah Jessica Parker & Robert Downey Jr.



These guys were another seriously serious relationship. Together for seven years, Parker put up with his excessive drink and drug problems, pulling him out of hangovers on a daily basis. Eventually it got too much for her and she left. Even though they're both happily married to other people, they'll always have love for each other.

9. Ashton Kutcher & January Jones


From 1998 to 2001 these guys were an item. However, apparently Kutcher was a shit boyfriend and reportedly told Jones that she's never be any good at acting. Eh, Mad Men anyone?


10. Justin Timberlake & Fergie


He was 16. She was 23. Needless to say it didn't last long but hey, it did happen.

11. Enrique Iglesias & Sofia Vergara



In the 1990s, long before Vergara was famous for playing Gloria, she was known mostly as Enrique's GF. They're both hot AF so we totally get why they were a thing.

12. Tyra Banks & Will Smith


In the early 90s, Banks appeared in a couple of episodes of Fresh Prince Of Bel Air as an old friend of Wills. Lo and behold, the pair started dating and were actually together for a year.


13. Tom Cruise & Cher


Tom was just a baby in 1987 when him and Cher got it together. This unlikely duo weren't together for that long but Cher has since said that she was "crazy for him."

14. Helen Mirren & Liam Neeson



These two were actually pretty serious. After meeting onset of Excalibur in 1981, they quickly moved in together and lasted a couple of years. Mirren has since admitted that "it was difficult to let go." Awh.

15. Brad Pitt & Sinitta


These two were a thing for TWO YEARS in the 1980s. Long distance issues tore them apart in the end. Imagine if they were still together?! Hmm, don't think Simon Cowell's ego would be too pleased about that.


16. Renee Zellweger & Jack White


This odd pair got together in 2003 and were dating for a year and a half before they called it quits.

17. Seth MacFarlane & Amanda Bynes



Although 12 years apart in age, and before Bynes' huge meltdown, these two dated briefly in 2008.

18. Moby & Natalie Portman


Circa 2008, Moby revealed that he and the Oscar-winning Harvard graduate had had a brief encounter. Just goes to show that there's more to attraction than looks (sorry Moby).


19. Jason Schwartzman & Zooey Deschanel


Schwartzman was actually Deschanel's first serious boyfriend. They were both 19 when they started dating and their relationship lasted for two years. The perfect indie couple.
