Love makes the world go around, or so they say – and it can also help to boost your career and get bums in seats, as some Hollywood couples have discovered. Here are 10 of our fave star couples who don’t make us dry reach with their public displays of affection … much.
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie
Admit it: they’re the kind of the couple that you love to hate. Brangelina have been forever tainted with the Jennifer Aniston brush ever since Brad hooked up with Ange while filming Mr. and Mrs. Smith. It resulted in the breakup of his marriage to Rachel … I mean Jennifer … and I don’t think we’ll ever get over it. Still, it’s hard to deny that these two are hot hot hot – and have you seen their freakishly cute babies?!
Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore
Upgraded from the”I thought they’d never last” list, Ashton and Demi have proven everyone wrong with their four-year marriage. Ashton has buddied up with his wife’s ex-husband Bruce Willis, and has slipped effortlessly into the stepdad role to Rumer, 21, Scout, 18, and Tallulah, 15 – and it appears that all of them get along famously. Tweet on!
Drew Barrymore & Justin Long
These two look cute as can be together, and despite their on-again-off-again history – which is currently on – we really hope they go the distance!Good luck Mac guy and Gertie!
Ellen Degeneres and Portia De Rossi
Ellen and Portia started dating in 2004 and tied the knot in 2008 when California overturned its ban on gay marriage (it then reversed its decision in November of that year). As one of their wedding guests told the Chicago Sun-Times,”Love is not about gender… it’s about two people who are totally dedicated to each other and their relationship.”
Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith
Seen as a bastion of monogamy among their fickle Hollywood counterparts, if these two don’t work out, there’s no hope for any of us!The couple claim that the success of their relationship is all about talking and sex. Sounds like a winning formula!
Sasha Baron Cohen and Isla Fischer
They’re fast becoming comedy’s first couple, with his success as Borat and Bruno, and her success in Wedding Crashers and Confessions of a Shopoholic. It’s only a matter of time before these two lovebirds team up for a big screen laughfest!
Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale
Gwen and Gavin (or Gwavin) always look so stylish, cute and ridiculously in love. Throw in baby Zuma and toddler Kingston, and you’ve got cuteness overload!In fact, they’re so in love, they got married twice … but only so she could wear her John Galliano dress a second time.
Heidi Klum and Seal
Heidi and Seal began dating early in 2004, while she was pregnant with her former boyfriend’s child. Scandal!When baby Leni was born, Seal promptly embraced fatherhood, and they now have another three children. They have a penchant for giving their kids super long names, such as Henry Gunther Ademola Dashtu Samuel and Johan Riley Fyodor Taiwo Samuel and finally Lou Sulola Samual. Pretty cool family!
Posh and Becks
They’re good looking (with a little help from some master surgeons), athletic, seemingly happy and filthy freakin’ rich. Despite being dogged by constant rumours of infidelity and marital unrest, they’ve clocked up a decade of marriage and have produced three adorable kids, Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz. All that’s missing? A baby girl.”I’d love to have a girl,” Posh says,”just for all the clothes I’ve got to hand down. It would be tremendous fun.”
Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes
The jury is still out on this celeb couple. In what appeared to be a whirlwind courtship (met, married and with child in less than two years) the pair seem happy – see Tom’s now infamous couch jumping moment on Oprah – and their genes combined to produce the impossibly adorable Suri. What could go wrong?
