Fans love to watch celebrities shacking up in an endless merry-go-round. Billy Bob Thornton used to be with Angelina Jolie who is with Brad Pitt who used to be with Jennifer Aniston who used to be with John Mayer who is on and off with Katy Perry who used to be with Russell Brand. Every year, we can count on new celebrity couples to pop up.
Here is a list of the top 10 favorite new celebrity couples.
1. Kanye West and Kim Kardashian
They started dating in April 2012 even though Kardashian’s divorce with ex-husband has yet to be ruled final. They are two of the most self-centered people in a business where that trait is commonplace. West is also known as the guy who took away Taylor Swift’s moment of glory because he thought his friend Beyoncé Knowles should have won the award rather than Swift. Kardashian is famous for her curves and not much for anything else. Together, however, they seem to be making beautiful music. It probably takes one vain person to understand another. For Kardashian’s sake, let’s hope they stay together as she has given West a Lamborghini Aventador.
2. Bradley Cooper and Zoe Saldana
They started dating in January 2012 but broke up after just a couple of months. Saldana has already made it big with “Avatar” while Cooper was in “The Hangover” and made people pay attention to him with his performance in “Silver Linings Playbook.” He probably got Saldana’s big attention as they started dating again in September 2012. His mom has been heard to approve heartily of Saldana and was even the one who pushed for their reconciliation. Now those are major plus points for Saldana.
3. Jason Sudeikis and Olivia Wilde
Olivia Wilde has made big strides since appearing in the television series “House.” Jason Sudeikis has always been known to be a funny man as a member of the cast of “Saturday Night Live” and as the star of movies like “Hall Pass” and “Horrible Bosses.” Beauty and humor are such a potent combination. The two started dating in January 2012 and Wilde has been quoted as saying that they have been having marathon sex ever since.
4. Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart
Edward and Belle, the two characters of “Twilight” are supposed to live happily together forever. In real life, they broke up because of a third party. And no, it was not the fault of Jacob. Kristen Stewart had an affair with a married man who directed her in “Snow White and the Huntsman.” Good thing Pattinson did not bite and suck the life out of the guy. He and Stewart has reconciled after they started dating again in September 2012.
5. Casper Smart and Jennifer Lopez
She is 18 years older, richer, more famous and still with a fabulous body. That Casper guy has lived up to his surname because he is indeed one smart guy. He has one of the most desired women in the planet in his arms and she has the cash to maintain their relationship. The two actually work together as Smart is one of J-Lo’s dancers. So she is a girlfriend, lover and boss all at the same time. Smart, isn’t he?
6. Chris Brown and Rihanna
She got beat up and smashed against the car window, so you would think that Rihanna would never let the guy who did it to her under her umbrella. But I guess Brown has the charm because he seems to have won Rihanna back again. And the more amazing thing about it was that Rihanna actually wanted him back. Brown was already in a serious relationship with model Karreuche Tran but she went back to Rihanna when he got the chance and they started dating again in September 2012. Maybe his heart never really left her, as he was known to have engaged Drake in a fight when the latter was rumored to be dating the Barbadian singer.
7. John Mayer and Katy Perry
The two have been on an on-and-off relationship. He has jumped around from one relationship to another with the likes of Jennifer Aniston, Taylor Swift, Kim Kardashian, Minka Kelly, Cameron Diaz and Jennifer Love Hewitt. Perry has had her share as well, from Russell Brand to the lead singer of Gym Class Heroes to the guitarist of Florence and the Machine. In December 2012, they seem to be on again with rumors of the two planning to get married.
8. Jack Antonoff and Lena Dunham
She has received acclaim for her performance in the HBO television series entitled “Girls.” She has even won an award for her fun performance in it. So she started dating Jack Antonoff, the guitarist of the band FUN, one of the biggest musical acts to come out in the past year. The two have been trying to keep a low profile and have not really been seen together since they collaborated for The New Yorker. Dunham’s show has regularly used FUN’s songs on the series. They are young, they are setting the world on fire and burning brighter than the sun.
9. Jamie Linden and Zooey Deschanel
Who does not love Zooey Deschanel? The quirky star of “(500) Days of Summer” and “New Girl” has everyone fawning on and falling for her. But she only fell for Jamie Linden, the screenwriter who penned the 2010 movie entitled “Dear John.” The two started dating around June 2012. They have not been very vocal about their relationship, but they have been spotted together in movie premieres and holiday dinners.
10. Fabrizio Moretti and Kristen Wiig
He plays guitars for the band called The Strokes. She is a cast member of “Saturday Night Live.” He used to date actress Drew Barrymore. She used to be married to actor Hayes Hargrove. Wiig had received Oscar nominations for her writing and acting in the movie “Bridesmaids.” If things carry on, she might find herself being a bride a second time around.
