Famous flings: 10 fantasy celeb hook-ups
Playing matchmaker can be fun. Who doesn't love pretending to be cupid and setting up potentially compatible friends and coworkers in hopes of a love connection? We've decided to take our set-up skills to Hollywood and make some imaginary match-ups with some of our favorite stars. Read on for our fantasy dating pool and see if you agree with our celebrity couplings.
Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio
Anyone who's seen Titanic (and let's face it, who hasn't?) has probably wished for these two to become an off-screen couple. The film that turned Winslet and DiCaprio into megastars also bonded them for life. But now that Kate is single, it would be very satisfying to see friendship blossom into romance.
Jennifer Aniston and John Stamos
After her devastating break-up with Brad Pitt, Jennifer Aniston hasn't been able to catch a romantic break. She's dated musicians and movie stars without any luck, so maybe it's time to turn to television. John Stamos maintains a low profile, but still continues to act, be it on stage or the small screen, and he seems like he'd give Aniston some stability, rather than talking about her to various publications (we're looking at you, John Mayer). Plus they'd look great together, which is a big plus.
Anne Hathaway and Jake Gyllenhaal
Someone else who's had poor luck in the dating department, Anne Hathaway needs a nice guy for once and we're suggesting Jake Gyllenhaal. Not only would these two look adorable together, we think they'd click on an intellectual level as well. They both choose interesting films, with well-written dialogue and seem like they'd be professional on set as well as off. And we know from recent interviews promoting Price of Persia that Gyllenhaal is a funny (as well as sexy) guy – the perfect combination for someone who's been dealt a bad hand in the boyfriend department so far.
Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams
Though there have been a few rumours floating around about a possible hook-up at Cannes, these two have yet to get into a romantic collision. But we think they should. Not only are they both gorgeous, they're great actors (seen together most recently in Blue Valentine) who seem much more mature than their Hollywood peers. We can picture these two huddled together in artsy cafes, or walking hand in hand down a cobblestone street somewhere in Europe. This would be one smart and sexy pairing.
James Franco and Natalie Portman
Seeing these two smarty pants together would be a love match on a higher level. Both see themselves as artists rather than simply, entertainers, and you can't deny the potential for chemistry. Both have an air of mystery and eyes that seem to see more than just what's on the surface.
