Just like everyone else, celebrities go through ups and downs in their relationships. But unlike the rest of the world, the relationships of celebrities get to unfold in front of the entire world, giving the public the opportunity to judge whether or not, so and so, made the correct decision in breaking up with so and so. The backlash after a breakup can be particularly bad when a couple has been together for a long time. In these cases, couples may seem perfect for one another, so much so, that when they decide to call it quits, their fans are left asking why and hoping for reconciliation. Below is a list of ten celebrity couples that we desperately wish would get back together. Even though most of the people below have moved on to different relationships, we can’t help but wonder if they will somehow, someway, find their way back to each other.
10. Miranda Kerr and Orlando Bloom
Miranda Kerr and Orlando Bloom met in 2007. In the beginning of their relationship, Kerr tried to ward off Bloom’s advances, explaining that she just wasn’t that into dating a movie star. However, Bloom was persistent and soon, the couple started a relationship. Three years later, the happy couple admitted that they were engaged, and the pair wed just one month later. One year later, the couple welcomed their beautiful baby boy, Flynn Christopher Blanchard Copeland Bloom. However, after the birth of their son, rumors of a split started to swarm around the once happy couple. They managed to ward the rumors off for awhile, but in 2013, they sadly split.
9. Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson
Every “Twihard” rejoiced when rumors started swirling about a real-life relationship between Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson. The couple were used to getting hot and heavy on-screen in their widely successful Twilight franchise, but the real excitement started when their onscreen romance made its way into their real lives. Unfortunately, this fairytale wasn’t made to last forever. After photos surfaced of Stewart kissing her Snow White and the Huntsman director, the couple went through a tumultuous few months before finally calling it quits, devastating “Twihards” everywhere.
8. Heidi Klum and Seal
Heidi Klum and Seal once seemed like the perfect couple. They had a beautiful family and they always looked like they were having a great time together. Unfortunately, this romance just wasn’t meant to be. The couple began dating in 2004, and married a year after. The couple was married for seven years and on each wedding anniversary, they would spend their day renewing their wedding vows. However, to the public’s dismay, this seemingly perfect couple announced their split in 2012.
7. Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder
The public loves it when a TV romance gets translated into real life. That’s exactly what happened to Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder. The couple met on their show The Vampire Diaries, and became a real-life couple soon after the show started. The couple dated for three years before ending their relationship in May 2013. Luckily for Vampire Diaries fans, rumors of the couple’s reconciliation began just a few months later. However, today the couple has gone their separate ways but the two remain friends. Hopefully this means that we can hope for a reconciliation in the future.
6. Taylor Swift and Harry Styles
We know that Taylor Swift has had her fair share of exes, but when it came out that Swift was hooking up with one-direction hottie, Harry Styles, fans were thrilled. But the idea of two of music’s biggest stars shacking up was just too good to be true. The pair’s whirlwind romance came to an abrupt halt just a couple of months after their relationship was confirmed. However, Swift fans did get something out of the heartbreak, some amazing new songs about her relationship with Styles on her new album, 1989.
5. Vanessa Hudgens and Zac Efron
Vanessa Hudgens and Zac Efron, who play high-school sweethearts on the popular Disney Channel franchise, High School Musical, transferred their on-screen chemistry to real life and fans were thrilled. There’s not much else fans of a popular franchise love more than seeing an on-screen romance being rekindled off-screen, and for Zac and Vanessa, it was a dream come true. The pair, who were notoriously private about their relationship, dated for three years before calling it quits. However, the two still have nothing but nice words to say about one another, so maybe there is still hope for reconciliation in the future.
4. Johnny Depp and Winona Ryder
Johnny Depp and Winona Ryder first laid eyes on each other at the, Great Balls of Fire! premiere in New York. Two months later, the pair met again through a mutual friend and fell in love. Five months after they met, Depp proposed to Ryder and just one month later, the pair were living together. Depp went even further to prove his commitment to Ryder by getting, “Winona forever,” tattooed on his arm. Unfortunately, the pair called it quits in 1993 because Winona’s father said she was too young to marry at the age of 19. To this day, Ryder and Depp still have nothing but nice things to say about one another. The pair has been very candid about the fact that they will always have a place in their hearts for one another.
3. Michelle Williams and Jason Segel
Although Michelle Williams and Jason Segel seemed like an odd pairing at first, the media soon fell in love with the pair. Segel and Williams always seemed happy together, walking down the streets hand-in-hand, and Segel seemed like he got along wonderfully with Williams’ daughter, Matilda. Unfortunately, Williams decided to break it off with Segel after a year of long-distance dating. Williams made the decision because she didn’t think that Segel was ready for such a serious commitment.
2. Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling
To the delight of fans of the film, The Notebook, Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling’s amazing on-screen chemistry was so strong that it translated into their everyday lives. The pair dated for two years on and off, before finally calling it quits, breaking fans hearts everywhere. When speaking about his break-up with McAdams, Gosling said, “I feel like I want to give people hugs, they seem so sad. Rachel and I should be the ones getting hugs! Instead, we’re consoling everybody else.”
1. Amy Poehler and Will Arnett
Amy Poehler and Will Arnett seemed like comedy’s perfect couple. Arnett has said of Poehler that he, “immediately had a talent crush,” on her. After seeing her on stage for the first time, Arnett even said, “I’m gonna marry that girl.” The pair were married for nine years and had two children together before deciding to go their separate ways. Still, the two have nothing but respect for each other. They’re still raising their two children together and have nothing but love for one another.
