When you start dating someone, you probably already know that you’re going to be subject to a lot of opinions. Your best friend will have to weigh in on your significant other, your parents will have their say, and you’ll have a host of additional friends and family members who will offer no shortage of “advice” to help you along in your relationship.
For celebrities, the pressure that comes with being in a relationship is even greater. The public constantly dissects the romantic lives of famous people, and makes the conclusion that some people “fit,” while others aren’t a good match. But, as they say, the heart wants what the heart wants, and apparently, that goes for famous people as well. Some people just have a connection, and even though society says that they probably shouldn’t be together, they ignore these unofficial “rules” and pursue the love they want. In today’s hyper-critical society, that’s a pretty bold move.
Some Hollywood couples are also pretty outspoken when it comes to the injustices in the world, and make their voice heard in society when others would rather be silent. There are also some couples who are just so unlikely, they were bound to make the news, at least for a little while. Here are 15 famous couples who really don’t care about meeting society’s expectations.
15 Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes
14 Jim Carrey and Renee Zellweger
13 Ted Danson and Whoopi Goldberg
12 John Mayer and Jennifer Aniston
11 Julia Roberts and Lyle Lovett
Remember when America’s Sweetheart Julia Roberts, was married to country singer Lyle Lovett? The two didn’t even look like a likely pair, and most people thought Roberts should have married the Prince Charming type. The two dated for just three weeks before eloping. After two years of marriage, their schedules became too hectic and they decided to divorce. It has been reported that the two are still friends. Both stars are a bit more low-key than they were in the 1990s and early 2000s, and that is likely due to the fact that they are raising their respective families and making sure their children have normal lives.
10 Russell Brand and Jemima Khan
9 Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden
8 Dennis Rodman and Carmen Electra
7 Lady Gaga and Taylor Kinney
6 Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton
5 David Spade and Julie Bowen
4 Beyonce and Jay-Z
3 Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie
2 Sandra Bullock and Jesse James
1 Josh Groban and Kat Dennings
Kat Dennings has a reputation for being a little rough around the edges, much like her character on Two Broke Girls. Based on her interviews, she’s a little sweeter in real life, but the public was still surprised when it was revealed that she was dating Josh Groban. Groban gives off a “band geek” vibe, and while he does have a beautiful voice, most people would have never pictured him with a hottie like Dennings. Then again, Groban did date January Jones at one point, so maybe he’s not quite as innocent as we think. Josh and Kat officially confirmed they were a couple when they showed up on the red carpet together in October 2014, and they’ve been going strong ever since.
