Celebrity PDA overload

In a world where most celebrities change partners more often than they change their underwear, it's refreshing when couples we love go the distance. It's just so hard to get attached to a famous pairing, only to have our hopes and dreams shattered when they break-up. Don't they consider our feelings before they split? (Kidding). 

On the flip-side, we're also kinda unsure of how we feel about celeb couples who are too lovey-dovey. Sure, we love love — but is there such a thing as too much PDA? Um, yes. And there are definitely some couples who take it too far. Look, we're not trying to judge, but when you have to flaunt your physical attraction that much, sometimes it seems a little staged.

Then again, when done right, PDA can be cute and feel genuine. We rounded up some of our favorite celeb couples who have been together for awhile, and still lather on the public displays of affection. Some go a little overboard, but, hey, isn't that celeb life in general?
