Even though there are loads of average Joes who want nothing more in life than to be famous, the truth of the matter is that most of us will never understand how it feels to always be in the spotlight. As a result, it makes perfect sense that most celebrities seem to spend the majority of their time interacting with other famous people.
Just like the way that most of us feel about our coworkers, celebrities have differing relationships with other stars. For instance, there are some stars who like each other enough that they get together in their off time. On the other hand, there are also some famous people whose distaste for one another is pretty clear. With that in mind, it is time to look at this list of celebrity pairs who vacation together and those who don’t even like being in the same room with each other.
In order for two celebrity couples to appear on this list, the general public has to have a pretty good idea of the nature of their relationship to one another. On one hand, they could either have a close enough relationship that they have been spotted vacationing together in the past. On the opposite end of the spectrum, some of the stars have been clear about the fact that they don’t even like being around one another.
20 Would Rather Not: Tiffani Thiessen & Brady Smith and Tori Spelling & Dean McDermott
Two actors who will always be associated with '90s television, Tiffani Thiessen and Tori Spelling both appeared in hit shows during that era. First introduced to the masses as one of the stars of the hit teen show Saved by the Bell, Thiessen went on to star in Beverly Hills, 90210 where she began working with Tori Spelling.
Evidently friends at one point, early on Thiessen and Spelling got along fine but according to one of them, something put an end to that. While speaking to Ryan Seacrest, Spelling revealed that marrying Dean McDermott came between her and Thiessen, and she lost her other 90210 friendships as a result, as IMDb reports.
It seems safe to assume that Thiessen’s husband Brady Smith wants nothing to do with Tori and Dean as well.
19 Vacation Together: Kevin Hart & Eniko Hart and Ludacris & Eudoxie Bridges
While it is hard enough to rise to the top of one entertainment industry, Kevin Hart and Ludacris have both conquered two. For his part, Hart is a huge movie star who still sells out one venue after another when he performs his stand-up comedy. On the other hand, Ludacris became famous due to his music but today he is better known for starring in the Fast and Furious film franchise.
Perhaps their shared media dominance has led them to become close enough friends to travel together. No matter what the reason is, those two and their wives, Eniko Hart and Eudoxie Bridges, took a vacation to Cabo San Lucas together.
18 Would Rather Not: Kid Rock & Audrey Berry and Tommy Lee & Brittany Furlan
Two highly successful musicians, Tommy Lee first rose to fame as a member of the rock band Mötley Crüe and Kid Rock’s music runs the gamut from rap, rock, and country. No strangers to the spotlight, both men married Pamela Anderson and during each of their marriages, they received a lot more attention from the masses for their love lives.
As is the case with many people who end up romantically linked to the same person, Rock and Lee grew to greatly dislike one another and they even got into a fist fight at an awards show. As a result, you’ll never catch the two of them and their partners hanging out together.
17 Vacation Together: Bradley Cooper & Irina Shayk and Allison Williams & Ricky Van Veen
If you have ever dreamed of walking down the street and spotting a star from afar, then you would have been ecstatic if you happened to be in the right part of Tahiti in July of 2017.
This is the case because a huge group of celebrities opted to vacation together at that time, including Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayk, as well as another couple in the form of Allison Williams and Ricky Van Veen.
Far from the only members of this hugely famous group, they were also accompanied by Diane von Furstenberg, Anderson Cooper, Andy Cohen, and Benjamin Maisani.
16 Would Rather Not: Kiefer Sutherland & Cindy Vela and Freddie Prinze Jr. & Sarah Michelle Gellar
Since 24 was an incredibly intense show that never let off the gas, portraying one of the show’s characters that were constantly in extreme situations must have been exhausting. As a result, it sure would have been great if the show’s lead Kiefer Sutherland kept things light on set but according to what series guest star Freddie Prinze Jr. told People, that was not the case.
“Kiefer was the most unprofessional dude in the world. That’s not me talking trash. I’d say it to his face. I think everyone that’s worked with him has said that … I just wanted to quit the business after that. So, I just sort of stopped.”
Considering that Prinze Jr. gave up his job for a while after that, we’re guessing that he and his wife Sarah Michelle Gellar always steer clear of Sutherland and his partner.
15 Vacation Together: Elton John & David Furnish and Neil Patrick Harris & David Burtka
In the entertainment industry, sometimes words like legend and icon get thrown around too easily. However, when it comes to someone like Elton John, a musician who has released so many hit songs that it would be foolhardy to try to list them all here, words like that totally fit. As a result, it seems like it would be thrilling to spend any time with the man.
Of course, he must be tired of dealing with fawning fans so we have to assume that Neil Patrick Harris has kept himself under control since the pair have become friends. After all, Harris, his husband David Burtka, and their kids went on vacation with Elton, his husband David Furnish, and their kids in St. Tropez.
14 Would Rather Not: Gwyneth Paltrow & Brad Falchuk and Winona Ryder & Scott Mackinlay Hahn
In this day and age, it might seem like Gwyneth Paltrow and Winona Ryder’s only link is their shared profession. However, during the '90s they grew to be close friends while Ryder was dating Ben Affleck and Paltrow was involved with Matt Damon. Of course, neither of those two romantic pairings still exists and Ryder and Paltrow appear to dislike one another now.
This is the case because Paltrow reportedly stumbled across the script for Shakespeare in Love in Ryder’s home and used that access to land a part for which she won an Oscar, as Data Lounge reports. An act that Ryder saw as a betrayal, it seems to have permanently put an end to any association Ryder, Paltrow, and their partners could ever have.
13 Vacation Together: George Clooney & Amal Clooney and Cindy Crawford & Rande Gerber
When it comes to some of the couples on the vacation together side of this list, it isn’t entirely clear how often they have chosen to travel as a group. On the other hand, George and Amal Clooney have been photographed with Cindy Crawford and her husband Rande Gerber several times over the years.
Whether they have been spotted on a yacht, traveling across the world to see gorgeous locales, or on any other kind of dream holiday, one thing remains clear, they enjoy their time together. Of course, it doesn’t hurt that the group always goes all out by traveling on private jets, dining at five-star restaurants, and enjoying the very best in life.
12 Would Rather Not: Josh Hartnett & Tamsin Egerton and Harrison Ford & Calista Flockhart
Among the most beloved actors of all time, loads of people grew up looking up to Harrison Ford due to his portrayals of Indiana Jones, Han Solo, and The Fugitive’s Richard Kimble. Due to his stellar career, from the outside looking in, it seems like it would be a dream come true for any actor to star in a film alongside Ford. Unfortunately for Ford’s co-star in the movie Hollywood Homicide, Josh Hartnett found the experience miserable.
In fact, Hartnett once revealed that they disliked one another so much that they would not talk to each other at all, as Contact Music reports. Clearly, Hartnett and his wife Tamsin Egerton won’t be vacationing with Ford and his spouse Calista Flockhart anytime soon.
11 Would Rather Not: Alyssa Milano & David Bugliari and Rose McGowan & Rain Dove
Able to stay on the air for an impressive eight seasons, Charmed developed a devoted fanbase that simply loved the series. Due to that fact, it was really surprising when one of its three leads, Shannen Doherty, left the show after a few seasons amid reports of tension on set. Once Doherty was gone, the show continued on for another five seasons with Rose McGowan coming in to play a new starring character.
Despite the fact that McGowan got along with her co-stars, including Alyssa Milano, well enough to stick around, things have changed a lot since then. In fact, in 2017 McGowan called Milano “fake” and said her former co-star makes her “want to vomit,” as News reports, so obviously she doesn’t want to be in the same room as her.
10 Vacation Together: Justin Timberlake & Jessica Biel and Jimmy Fallon & Nancy Juvonen
Over the years, there have been a select few late-night talk show hosts whose shows have connected with viewers enough that they have found a lasting audience. When it comes to those folks, most of us don’t think of people like Jay Leno, Johnny Carson, Conan O’Brien, or David Letterman palling around with their guests.
On the other hand, Jimmy Fallon seems to enjoy most of his guests but none more so than his close personal friends Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel. With that in mind, it isn’t surprising that those three and Jimmy’s wife Nancy Juvonen hang out regularly and go on vacations together as well.
9 Vacation Together: Miley Cyrus & Liam Hemsworth and Chris Hemsworth & Elsa Pataky
The kind of experience that some of us were fortunate enough to enjoy as kids, going on vacation with your family can be an awful lot of fun. As it turns out, famed actors Chris and Liam Hemsworth enjoy going on holidays together so much that they’ve continued to do just that now that they are wealthy adults.
Opting to take their significant others along with them, Liam and his fiancée Miley Cyrus went to a Montana ski resort with Chris and his wife Elsa Pataky for several days. Opting to take this trip together in order to celebrate the beginning of 2019, Luke Hemsworth and his wife Samantha Hemsworth also took part in the family trip.
8 Would Rather Not: Lauren Conrad & William Tell and Heidi Montag & Spencer Pratt
When someone signs on to star in a “reality” show, they not only are agreeing to open their private life up to the world at large but they also are in for a lot of drama. For example, at one time Lauren Conrad and Heidi Montag seemed to be the best of friends on The Hills. By the time the series came to an end, the opposite was true.
While there were many things that came between the pair, Heidi beginning to date and then marrying Spencer Pratt, who Conrad obviously couldn't stand, has ensured they continue to avoid one another to this day.
7 Would Rather Not: Julia Roberts & Daniel Moder and Nick Nolte & Clytie Lane
Someone that deserves to be considered among the biggest movie stars of all time, throughout much of her career Julia Roberts was considered to be America’s sweetheart. Due to how beloved she is and how hugely successful her movies tend to be at the box office, you’d think that her co-stars would be overjoyed to work with her. However, it did not go well when she and Nick Nolte starred in the movie I Love Trouble together.
In fact, journalist Judy Brennan wrote in the LA Times that “[Julia] would deride and insult her co-star” and he “became so annoyed with her attitude that he would do things to agitate her even more.” Asked about their relationship by The New York Times, Roberts said that while Nolte can be “completely charming and very nice, he's also completely disgusting,” as SBS reports.
6 Vacation Together: Priyanka Chopra & Nick Jonas and Sophie Turner & Joe Jonas
A couple who has had a wonderful time over the last several months, Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas recently got married and had a huge party afterwards in order to celebrate their nuptials. Evidently not through with enjoying their wonderful new life together, over the 2018 Christmas holidays Chopra and Jonas took a trip to Switzerland. Of course, most of us want to spend the holidays with family and these two are no different as they were joined by Joe Jonas and his serious girlfriend, Sophie Turner.
While it seems that those four hit the slopes strictly with one another, many other Jonas family members also traveled to the country and they all had a huge Christmas dinner together.
5 Vacation Together: All The Kardashian Couples
The only entry on this list that isn’t limited to only two couples, when it comes to the Kardashian family, not only have they built a business empire together but they have fun as a group as well. As a result, any Kardashian couple that lasts for any real amount of time ends up going on vacation with the "klan" as a whole or at least with other members of it.
In fact, there are so many pictures of the Kardashians and their partners on vacation with one another that we don’t have the space to single any two of the family’s romantic pairings out for this entry.
4 Would Rather Not: Tyrese Gibson & Samantha Lee and Dwayne Johnson & Lauren Hashian
One of those people who seems impossible to dislike, it really feels like Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson would be a delight to be around. However, his Fast and Furious co-star Tyrese Gibson has been very public about how angry he is with Johnson. This is the case because that film franchise has been put on hold for a little while in order to make a spin-off film about Johnson and Jason Statham’s characters.
This resulted in Gibson calling out Johnson for “making the fast and furious franchise about YOU” on IG, which makes us wonder why Gibson seems to have no problem with Statham. Either way, the hard feelings will keep Gibson, Johnson and their partners apart at least for a while.
3 Would Rather Not: Taylor Swift & Joe Alwyn and Katy Perry & Orlando Bloom
One of the most elite groups in the world today, there are only a select few pop stars who have managed to release one album after another that were chock full of hit songs. As two people who’ve pulled off that feat, Taylor Swift and Katy Perry are uniquely positioned to understand the pressures that one another is under.
That is why it is such a shame that these two who were once friends have gone on to dislike one another enough to sling insults back and forth. In a different world we could imagine Swift and her boyfriend Joe Alwyn vacationing with Perry and her fiancé Orlando Bloom but in this one, that is not happening.
2 Vacation Together: Sacha Baron Cohen & Isla Fisher and Matthew McConaughey & Camila Alves
As avid followers of the celebrity world, we’ve known for a very long time that famous people tend to become good friends with one another and spend a lot of time together. Still, learning about a trip that Sacha Baron Cohen and his wife Isla Fisher took with Matthew McConaughey and his spouse Camila Alves was surprising.
This is because they traveled to the South of France with one another and a staggering group of other huge stars in 2018. As far as the other famous people who went with them, they include the likes of Madonna, Bono, Chris Rock, Woody Harrelson, and Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich. That is an amazing group of stars!
1 Vacation Together: John Krasinski & Emily Blunt and Jimmy Kimmel & Molly McNearney
If you are a regular viewer of Jimmy Kimmel’s late-night talk show and have seen appearances by John Krasinski or Emily Blunt, then you likely know that they are all good friends. Formerly neighbors, they took great glee in pranking one another in sometimes outrageous ways and all three of them and Kimmel’s wife Molly McNearney clearly share a similar sense of humor.
That is probably why the two couples opted to vacation in Cabo San Lucas together in 2012, alongside another pairing that has since broken up, Justin Theroux and Jennifer Aniston. On top of that, we also know that Kimmel, Blunt, Krasinski, and McNearney have also gone on holiday as a group in Hawaii.
