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
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
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
4 Johnny Depp and Winona Ryder
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.
