If you think of some things you love about your favorite celebrities, what comes to mind? Just to name a few... their incredibly trendy fashion sense, how talented (or in some cases untalented) they are in their breakout movie roles, and which other hot celebrity they are shacked up with.
Our favorite celebrity couples shine on red carpets and in our news articles. They all fell in love in the public eye and are now living out their lives in it, too. Ryan and Blake fell in love on a movie set and now have two beautiful children. Kim and Kanye were friends for years and now just seem to fit together like a puzzle (an obnoxious and dramatic puzzle, but a puzzle nonetheless), with their multi-million dollar empire. Similarly, Beyoncé and Jay-Z have shown us that they can get through anything-- and look like royalty while doing so.
But there are some celebrity couples, whether current or in the past, that just simply did not make sense together. Remember Dennis Rodman and Madonna's love affair... or Sandra Bullock and Ryan Gosling's weird courtship? Below we outline some completely abnormal couples that make us go 'huh?' because they simply just do not add up.
18 Ryan Reynolds And Alanis Morrisette: The Rocker Chick And The Pretty Boy
This one has always tripped us out; did you know these two were engaged?! That's right. The reason this seems so weird is probably because Morrisette seems significantly older than Reynolds, but did you know Ryan is actually 41 years old?! He just had two kids with now-wife and fellow actress Blake Lively, 30, so most of us think he is of similar age; however, he is not. Morrisette is 43, making this pairing a little less weird. But, she is a rocker chick and he is a glorified perfectly-chiseled actor. These two just don't mix. They dated for 2 years before getting engaged in 2004; however, they broke off their engagement in early 2007. Reynolds went on to date Scarlett Johansson before finding love with Blake Lively on the set of Green Lantern.
17 Amanda Bynes And Seth McFarlane: This One Is A Joke
These two are mostly known for their comedic talent, so it is no surprise that most of America thought this partnership was a joke-- that is, a roll-your-eyes, oh-please-that-won't-last type of joke. Amanda Bynes dated MacFarlane in 2008 when she was at the ripe age of (yes, this was before her major meltdowns of the last few years). MacFarlane, known for his work on Family Guy, Ted, Sing, and The Simpsons, among many other popular shows in pop culture. He was 29 at the time of their rendezvous. They only dated for three months, but what a weird three months that must have been. He likes to be sarcastic and political, while she just likes to have fun. They were also just in two very different places in their lives. We're glad this one ended.
16 Avril Lavigne And Brody Jenner: The Rocker Chick And The Pretty Boy, Part Two
This is another case of a rocker chick dating a pretty boy and it making absolutely no sense to the rest of us, yet somehow these two lasted many years just like Morrisette and Reynolds. Brody Jenner, known for pretty much nothing besides his famous family and his time on The Hills with Lauren Conrad and Kristin Cavallari, dated famous singer Avril Lavigne from early 2010 to January 2012. She is known for her hits, including Sk8r Boi, My Happy Ending, Complicated, and many more. The two even had each other's names tattooed on their bodies during their precious time together (how naïve). But these two were bound not to last as they were simply not compatible and probably wanted very different things. Each has moved on since then and found love in other places and in other people.
15 Blake Shelton And Gwen Stefani: Country Meets Alternative
This odd relationship is still going strong, but everyone around the country and almost in unison said 'huh?' when these two got together. Blake Shelton was once married to Miranda Lambert, a fellow country singer; he became famous as a country singer and is known for songs like Boys Round Here, Austin, and Ol' Red, among many others. He met Stefani on the set of The Voice which they were filming together in the fall of 2015. Stefani has been famous for decades, first with the band No Doubt and then branching out on her own establishing a lucrative singing and fashion career. Despite many rumors, these two opposites are going strong proving that opposites do in fact attract, but it's still weird, right?! Who's with me?
14 Sandra Bullock And Ryan Gosling: Isn't She Too Old For Him?
It is 2002. Bullock, hot off her work from Speed and Miss Congeniality, lands a role on the set of Murder by Numbers. She meets hunky actor Ryan Gosling, who was just twenty-two years old and had yet to land the role that would make him Hollywood famous (hopeless romantic Noah in The Notebook). Then, the unthinkable happened. Bullock, who was 36 at the time, and Gosling started dating-- DATING. It's just wrong in so many ways. Luckily, it only lasted about a year, and we think that is probably because these two had way too big of an age gap, but also it has to be because it just didn't make sense. I mean, they didn't even look good together! Leave this in the past, please, and let's not speak of it anymore.
13 Justin Timberlake And Fergie: Robbing The *NSync Cradle
This is yet another one that makes us scratch her heads and also just makes us cringe. Justin Timberlake rose to fame in the hit boy band *Nsync. They had hit songs like Dirty Pop, I Want You Back, Bye Bye Bye, and more. In the early 2000s, Timberlake branched out on his own to create a solo career-- and he was incredibly successful. Fergie, on the other hand, made a similar move branching out on her own after the success she had with the band The Black Eyed Peas. In 2003, these two dated briefly after Timberlake worked on Where Is the Love? with the famous band. Fergie said it was never anything serious and that they were just having fun. One thing is for sure: we're glad they never got that serious.
12 George Clooney And Kelly Preston: Not Meant To Be
George Clooney and Kelly Preston actually isn't the weirdest couple on this list. In fact, it really does make some sense; however, we know now that this love just wasn't meant to be. Falling in love in 1987, Preston and Clooney actually lived a low-key life. That's right, Kelly actually settled him down a bit. Known for his promiscuous and perma-bachelor ways, Clooney has had a successful acting career in movies like Gravity, Ocean's Eleven, and the hit television show ER. Preston was less popular, but we all know she went on to marry famous actor John Travolta in 1989, the same year she and Clooney called it quits. We also know Clooney went back to his bachelor ways for decades until finally settling down with Amal Alamuddin in recent years and having twins last year. In other words, everything is now as it should be.
11 David Spade And Naya Rivera: He's Too Old And Just Not Funny
This year, funny man Spade turns 54, and no offense to him but it really (really) shows. The comedic legend is known for his roles in Joe Dirt, Grown Ups, and several more movies and television shows. Virtually, he is a household name. That's why in early 2017 when we saw him cozying up to Glee actress Naya Rivera, we were nothing less than shocked. Rivera, 30, states that they are just friends. I don't know about you, but I definitely don't hug my friends that tight in a pool while on a tropical vacation. Since then, Rivera has had some trouble with her husband while in the public eye and Spade is currently single, yet will always be known for dating super attractive actresses, including Rivera.
10 Diane Keaton And Keanu Reeves: Big Age Difference, Little Care
This one is surely a doozy. Diane Keaton has been around for decades. She started her acting career in 1970 and has been known for movies like The Godfather, Father of the Bride, The First Wives Club, Something's Gotta Give, and Because I Said So. In fact, while on the set of Something's Gotta Give, she met fellow actor, Keanu Reeves, and there were many rumors that the two had a passionate affair with Keaton, who was 57 at the time, visiting Reeves' house in the wee hours of the morning. At the time, Reeves was just 39, so there were eighteen years between them! Nothing was ever confirmed, but this partnership is sure to go down in history as one of the weirdest couplings of celebrities in all time.
9 Dakota Johnson And Chris Martin: Hollywood's Biggest Secret
This relationship has caused quite the stir with fellow celebrities, paparazzi, and fans alike. Chris Martin is the lead singer of the popular band Coldplay, a band known for songs like Fix You and Viva La Vida. Martin was famously married to actress Gwyneth Paltrow from late 2003 to early 2014, when the two announced they were separating. They shared two children together. Martin has since gone on to date Jennifer Lawrence, as well as current flame Fifty Shades Freed actress Dakota Johnson. Even though we love Johnson, this pairing just simply does not make sense. How they crossed paths, we do not know, but the two are very different, not to mention their 12 year age difference. Won't their wants and needs be different?
8 Britney Spears And Colin Farrell: Pop Star Meets Bad Boy
Yet another pairing of celebrities that makes zero sense. In fact, we would go as far as to say it makes less than zero sense! (Is that a thing?) These two celebrities briefly dated in 2003, with Farrell saying they were just 'mates', yet paparazzi snapped some photos of the two looking more than cozy on multiple occasions. Spears referred to their fling as casual, but either way, this is an awfully weird pairing. Spears, famous for her singing career with hit songs like Baby... One More Time and Circus was just 22 when these two hooked up, while Farrell, a famous Irish actor, was almost thirty. Even though that age difference isn't too wide, these two wouldn't have lasted due to their grueling schedules, but more so due to Farrell's bad boy partying ways.
7 Kylie Jenner And Travis Scott: Still Going Strong, But Still Odd
This pairing does not seem that odd to us now, as these two have been together well over a year and now have a beautiful baby girl, Stormi, together. Jenner, 20, was born in 1997 to parents Bruce Jenner and Kris Kardashian. She is the youngest of the infamous Kardashian-Jenner clan and has built a beauty and makeup empire all before she is legally allowed to purchase alcohol. Scott, born in 1992, will turn twenty-six in April. Jenner seemed to move on quickly to Scott after her four-year relationship with rapper, Tyga (Scott is also a rapper). Initially, we were surprised to see them together, as Jenner and Tyga were together for many years (plus how did these two meet?). Now, it seemingly just fits. Congrats to the new parents!
6 Liam Hemsworth And Miley Cyrus: Extroverts And Introverts
When these two first got together after the filming of their movie The Last Song in 2009, everyone was absolutely here for it. They were the golden couple for a little while. After a brief breakup in the summer of 2010, they got back together and announced their engagement in early 2012. Then, in 2013, Cyrus cuts her incredible locks and dyes them platinum blonde. This is when her rebellion starts and soon after her infamous twerking on stage at the VMA's, their engagement is called off. This is when this pairing no longer made sense. Hemsworth, famous for movies like The Hunger Games trilogy, Empire State, and Independence Day: Resurgence, was seen with other women before the two got back together sometime in late 2015/early 2016. Her rebellious, hippie ways are too different from his settled down, Australian lifestyle.
5 Shia LaBeouf And Rihanna: Much Too Different To Make This Work
Shia LaBeouf is a famous and talented actor, who is most recently famous (or maybe infamous) for his meltdowns and rendezvous with narcotics and booze and the like. His acting credits include Disturbia, Transformers, Eagle Eye, and Lawless. Most recently, he starred in indie films instead of blockbusters. Rihanna, on the other hand, is one of music's leading ladies with hits like Umbrella, Rude Boy, Pon De Replay, and more. In 2007, the two actually went out on a date, but LaBeouf has opened up since then, saying that the two just did not have sparks. However, when he opened up about this about nine years ago, he said they still remain friends. Now, we do not know if they still are. We're happy this didn't happen-- and we completely understand why there were no sparks.
4 Natalia Dyer And Charlie Heaton: Stranger Things Have Happened
Natalia Dyer and Charlie Heaton are two of the many breakout stars from the Netflix hit television show, Stranger Things. Dyer, 21, has had little to no roles before this one put her on the map. Similarly, Heaton, 24, does not have many acting credits to his name, either. These two have reportedly been dating since the filming of the first season, but they have yet to confirm or deny it, no matter when they are asked-- or who asks them. It is smart to keep it on the down low; however, due to the fact that they are also co-stars. Is mixing work and play a good idea? We're not sure, but we also think it is a weird pairing, considering her unstoppable beauty and his pale and angry demeanor. How long do you think this will last?
3 Sofia Richie And Scott Disick: Work Hard, Party Harder
These two are a joke and a nightmare that I am pretty sure all of America, and the world is waiting to watch deteriorate right before our very eyes. Sofia Richie, 19, is the famous daughter to singer Lionel Richie. Disick, 34, is the former love of the eldest Kardashian, Kourtney. He has three children with the reality television mogul and has been famous for cheating on her during his traveling to major party cities. He is known for his heavy alcohol problem as well, entering rehab many times. These two started dating last year and couldn't be more wrong for each other, especially due to the age gap, and the very fact that it is probably only a matter of time before Disick goes back to his cheating ways. How can a 19-year-old keep him satisfied?
2 Lady Gaga And Taylor Kinney: An Actor That Wants A Family And A Pop Star That Wants Her Fame
Taylor Kinney is known most famously for his role in Chicago Fire but has had other roles in The Vampire Diaries, Shameless, and The Other Woman. His super jump to stardom began when he started dating Lady Gaga, aka Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta. She rose to fame in the mid-2000s with pop hits like Poker Face, Bad Romance, and Paparazzi. The two started dating in 2011 and, after many years, Kinney popped the question on Valentine's Day in 2015. Rumors swirled of a wedding, but still, nothing came. Then, in July 2016, one of Hollywood's favorite couples called it quits, stating that they are both heartbroken but will always have respect for one another. This saddened us, but it makes sense. He was ready for a family and there were rumors that she simply was not.
1 Cameron Diaz And Benji Madden: Tattoos And A Charlie's Angel
One of the weirdest couples on our list, Benji Madden, and Cameron Diaz have been together for years-- and even got married. The two are very different, with Diaz often in the spotlight for her talented acting chops (Charlie's Angels, Bad Teacher, There's Something About Mary, and the list could go on...) and Madden fading to the background after the fame and success of his band Good Charlotte, which gave us songs like I Don't Wanna Be in Love, Lifestyles of the Rich & Famous, and Girls & Boys throughout the 2000s. The two started dating in 2014 and got married less than a year later, in the winter of 2015. Diaz was 42 at the time, while Madden was 35. The two are still together to this day and they have yet to announce any pregnancies, but we hope that will come soon!
