15 Ryan Reynolds And Blake Lively Had Major Sparks Between Them
This is one of our favorite #relationshipgoals couples. They are so adorable together and they have a lot of fun teasing each other on social media. Ryan Reynolds joked around that he fell in love with Blake Lively after spending the night together, but we all know it goes much deeper than that. The two met on the set of The Green Lantern, but it just wasn’t their time. Reynolds stated that the two were friends for a long time before they dated.
“About a year after Green Lantern had come and gone and we were both single, we went on a double date — she was on a date with another guy and I was on a date with another girl,” Reynolds said.
“It was like the most awkward date for the respective parties because we were just like fireworks coming across,” Reynolds said.
14 Mila Kunis And Ashton Kutcher Were Star-Crossed Lovers
These two met many years ago on the set of That '70s Show, but of course, Ashton Kutcher was in a relationship at that point. Kutcher was actually Mila Kunis’ first kiss, though it was for a scene on the show. It wasn’t until many years later that the two got together and it sort of started off as a “friends with benefits” deal. The two had been burned before and had no interest in getting serious.
"[Kutcher] just got out of a marriage. I got out of a long relationship. I was single and having the best time ever. I was totally dating, having a great time, and I was like, 'I'm never getting married.' He's like, 'Great, neither am I!'
And we're like shaking hands on it and we're like, 'life is great!' A year later, we're like, 'tomorrow, let's get married.'"
13 Ginnifer Goodwin And Josh Dallas Have A Fairytale Love
These two re-created the epic love between Snow White and Prince Charming in the popular TV series Once Upon a Time. Josh Dallas says that falling in love with Ginnifer Goodwin was a magical experience and that just melts our hearts. "Magical — on and off screen, it was magical. I think that particularly the first season had that kind of quality to it.
It was really exciting to play that couple, Snow White and Charming, that couple that has that real pure love from the start.
I can remember now when we were shooting the pilot, we were shooting that scene where he rides up on the horse and she's asleep in the coffin and she's surrounded by the forest and she's, for all he knows, dead, and he goes to kiss her and she wakes up. I remember it started to snow when we were there and it seemed so symbolic and magical." If this isn't a real-life fairytale, we don't know what is.
12 Chrissy Teigen And John Legend Met In A Music Video
The two met on the set of John Legend’s 2007 music video Stereo, but unlike what you might think, it was not love at first sight. Legend isn’t someone that rushes into anything and he needed to really get to know Teigen before he fell hard. “I let him be himself for a while,” she said.
“The worst thing you can do is try to lock someone like that down early on, then have them think there’s so much more out there. I played it cool for a long time. Never once did I ask, ‘What are we?’
Marriage was never my goal, because I’ve never been very traditional. I was just happy to be with him.” Legend said that he fell in love with her while seeing how witty she was over the phone.
11 Will Smith And Jada Pinkett Smith Have Mutual Respect
Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith have been together for a really long time, even before they were married. These two have mad respect for one another and you have to appreciate the fact that they always have each other’s back. The two met when he was on his hit TV show, but they didn’t get together at that time. "I met him when I was 19 at an audition for The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air," she told YourTango.
"After we had known each other for many years, we went out for dinner one night and I saw that he had grown from this lanky kid to this really responsible man. We started courting each other and our friendship turned into romance."
The two certainly have built a strong bond together.
10 Gwen Stefani And Blake Shelton Are Life Savers
Gwen Stefani And Blake Shelton met on season 7 of The Voice and the two, although they seem very different, fell in love. Blake Shelton has said that Stefani saved his life and that just makes our hearts melt. The two at the time were both getting over a divorce from their prospective partners and they were there for each other. “[We’d] high-five and [say], ‘Good to see ya,’” Shelton says. “All of a sudden, this thing just happened because of some things that we were going through, and it saved my life. Period.
I tell people all the time, ‘Gwen saved my life last year.’ She did. I think she’d probably tell you something similar about me.”
Sometimes, things are just meant to be and we never know how it’s going to come to be
9 Justin Timberlake And Jessica Biel Were Old-Fashioned
We love this couple because they seem laid back and very real. Justin Timberlake asked her out over the telephone and it wasn’t long before the two did fall in love. "There was nothing starry about the way we got together," Timberlake said in a press conference for Trouble With the Curve. "It was very un-Hollywood-esque, in fact," recalled Timberlake.
"We met and got talking. Afterward, I asked my friend if I could call her and ask her out. My friend called Jessica and Jessica said yes, and so I called her. I did it the old-fashioned way — by telephone."
Biel knew fairly soon that he was “the one.” "He just started to check off all these boxes: funny, kind, compassionate, loving, and driven," says Biel. "You know, you start to see somebody in the full scheme of a human and you go, 'Oh, wow, they’re not missing anything here.'"
8 Freddie Prinze Jr. And Sarah Michelle Gellar Are Forever
These two have been together for a whopping 17 years and that’s saying something. The two met on the set of I Know What You Did Last Summer and when they went out on their first date, Sarah impressed Freddie. The actor was used to dating Hollywood girls that never ate anything but salads. “And so Sarah came to dinner with me, and we sat down and she ate everything, including a crab that they let walk across the counter, then kill while it was alive in some oil and said, ‘It’s popcorn, try.’
And she ate it without even blinking, and I was like, ‘Yo, my girl is legit.'”
Whatever they are doing to keep their relationship strong is clearly working, and if we had to guess, it was probably leaving Hollywood.
7 Olivia Wilde And Jason Sudeikis Are Connected on Another Level
These two are certainly not two people we would expect to see together. Jason Sudeikis had admitted that he definitely married up when he got together with Olivia Wilde, but these two have a pretty great love story. Wilde stated that it wasn’t love at first sight but there was definitely a connection between them. “I was just learning to be myself; I’d been divorced nine months,” Wilde said in the 2013 Marie Claire interview. “We were both seeing people but were single.
He seemed to really see me, see through the bullshit. He said very few words and couldn’t keep eye contact. He was so handsome, and he could dance.”
Sudeikis was playing it cool the whole time, probably afraid she would bolt. "We closed the restaurant down at 2 a.m.!” Wilde said. “He didn’t kiss me, and I was madly in love. I was overwhelmed.”
6 David And Victoria Beckham Are In It For The Long Haul
These two have certainly had their ups and downs over the years, but they genuinely seem to be in love. Before he even met her, David Beckham knew he wanted to be with Victoria and that’s the sweetest thing ever. When he saw Victoria on TV with the Spice Girls, he told a friend,
“See the girl in the dark short dress? I’m going to marry her.”
Victoria must have felt the same way because she penned a letter to British Vogue about their first meeting. "Love at first sight does exist. It will happen to you in the Manchester United players' lounge." She continued: "While the other football players stand at the bar drinking with their mates, you will see David standing aside with his family. (He's not even in the first team at this stage — you are the famous one.) And he has such a cute smile. You, too, are close to your family, and you will think how similar he feels to you. He's going to ask for your number.”
5 Chris Hemsworth And Elsa Pataky Googled Each Other
Chris Hemsworth must have seen something he liked about Elsa Pataky because he Googled her before he met her through his agent. He said that when he met Elsa that it wasn’t love at first sight, that it just made sense. “There was no light-bulb moment," he said. "From the first time we met, we just made sense. She's fun. She's outgoing, and she has a sense of humor and a passionate attitude toward life, which is nice to try to keep up with." Something must have clicked because the two decided to add marriage to the list.
"There was no great plan to any of it to be honest, we were on holiday and we said 'why don't we get married, too?'" he said.
"There probably should have been some planning, but it all worked out. Honestly, we had both our families on holiday at the same time, just randomly, and we said this is a good opportunity with everyone together so we just did it."
4 Prince William And Kate Middleton Met In College
These two had a very sweet meeting in college and Kate Middleton acted exactly the way most of us probably would if we ran into a prince. “I went bright red and scuttled off, feeling very shy.” He must have found her intriguing because he paid $200 to sit front row at a racy fashion show that she was in. He stated that the two just worked and he loved her sense of humor.
“We just spent more time together, we had a good giggle and realized we shared some interests. She has a normal sense of humour which is really good for me because I’ve got a dead sense of humour, and things happened.”
The two certainly worked well, they eventually got married and are now living the royal life with two children and another on the way.
3 Meghan Markle And Prince Harry Can Thank Their Friends
Sometimes, introducing your friend to someone can really change their life. That’s exactly how it happened for both Prince Harry and Megan Markle. “Everything I learned about him I learned through him," Markle said. Prince Harry stated that he got to know Markle really fast when the two decided to go on a vacation together.
"[After] only two dates and then going effectively on holiday together in the middle of nowhere [in Botswana], it was amazing to get to know her as quickly as I did," Harry said.
They have certainly had a whirlwind of a romance and when they went public with their relationship, it was only a few months after that, that they became engaged. "Just a standard, typical night for us," Harry said. "Trying to roast a chicken," Harry added. Meghan Markle explained, "Trying to roast a chicken. And it was just — just an amazing surprise, it was so sweet and natural and very romantic. He got on one knee."
2 John Krasinski And Emily Blunt Adore Each Other
These two are one of the most adorable couples in Hollywood right now. We love everything about them. They just starred in a movie together called The Quiet Place and it’s gotten amazing reviews. John co-wrote and directed the movie and both he and Emily star in it. Emily has talked about how she fell in love with John at first sight. She was dining in a restaurant with her friends and while they were literally discussing how much she loved being single, John walked in.
"[My friend] goes, ‘Oh, my God, there’s my friend John.’ And that was it."
Emily has said she knew virtually right away that John was “the one.” "We were engaged within 10 months, but I think we probably knew before that." These two are seriously adorable together.
1 Tom Brady And Gisele Bundchen Are So Much Alike
Many people wondered how a football player and a supermodel ended up together and it’s because they are so much alike that they are practically the same person. They were another couple that met through their friends. That’s when you know you can really trust your friends. Brady had broken up with Bridget Moynahan and was looking for love. The two were set up by friends in 2006 because they were so much alike. "This friend told me he knew a girl version of me," Brady said in Details magazine's July 2009 issue. Gisele called out in from the background: "And he said to me he'd found a boy version of me." The two had dinner in New York City and obviously hit it off quite well.
