When it comes to going out with friends, the stars are just like us, except nobody’s trying to take our photo through a restaurant window. And celebs who are married or dating may want to head out on double dates to share fun times and exciting experiences. But they don’t go on double dates with “normal” folks like us, they head out with other celebs to make the date a star-studded spectacle.
It’s fun to see which celeb couples are pals with other celeb couples and seeing all four of them out at a restaurant is special. The paparazzi is always ready to snap their pics as they order bottles of wine and expensive entrees. We watch them laugh and talk and wonder if their friendships are the real deal or part of some contrived publicity stunt. We’d like to think celebs only chill with people they actually enjoy being around, but in Hollywood, you never know what shenanigans people will pull for attention.
So, if the mutual friendships are, in fact, the real thing, here are 10 celeb couples who go on double dates with other celeb couples. But just to give you a taste of pure Hollywood shade, we’ve included 5 celeb couple pairs who wouldn’t even consider going on double dates with each other. Heck, it would be a miracle to get them in the same room!
The next time you are on a double date, imaging replacing your non-celeb friends with a pair of stars. Would Beyoncé and Jay-Z be your faves or would you go for Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber? Then again, by the time you make your reservation, Selena and “The Biebs” may have broken up again for the zillionth time!
15 Mario Lopez And Courtney Laine Mazza And Eva Longoria And Jose Baston
Mario Lopez has been a star for decades; fans have adored him since his days on TV’s Saved by the Bell and now as a co-host of a popular entertainment news show, Mario remains in the spotlight, beloved as ever. One of his biggest fans is actress Eva Longoria. Mario, Eva, and their respective spouses all love to double date, making the foursome a sight for sore eyes when they walk into a restaurant together. Mario’s wife Courtney Laine Mazza and Eva’s hubby Jose Baston are both attractive, as are Mario and Eva, but we didn’t need to remind you of that!
This cool crew loves to hang out, share stories, and go on adventures.
Eva has a baby on the way, so since Mario and Courtney are already parents, perhaps they can offer some sage advice, or better yet, babysit!
14 Kelly Clarkson And Brandon Blackstock And Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton
Singing sensation Kelly Clarkson and her husband Brandon Blackstock are close with singer Gwen Stefani and her beau Blake Shelton. We all know that Blake and Gwen met as judges on The Voice, and Kelly was on the show as a judge too. Brandon is in the music biz as well, making this bunch connected on the musical and the friendship level. We can imagine that the foursome enjoys going to concerts together or show off their singing skills on karaoke night at a nearby bar. Imagine being there with a pal sipping a glass of wine or a bottle of beer and seeing these four stroll in? So much for killing it at karaoke that night! It seems like these four would have a lot of fun together as they laugh, sing, and do their thing. Maybe if Gwen and Blake get married, Kelly can be a bridesmaid!
13 Kourtney Kardashian And Younes Bendjima And Scott Disick And Sofia Richie
After years of being in a messed-up relationship, reality star Kourtney Kardashian and her “baby daddy” Scott Disick have finally set themselves free from one another and have moved on to new relationships. Kourtney is dating (the considerably younger) Younes Bendjima and Scott is currently with 19-year-old model Sofia Richie — the daughter of the legendary singer Lionel Richie. Sure, Kourt and Scott do plenty of family-related things together since they have three children together, but that does not mean they are cool with double dating. It would be super awkward, to say the least. A large gathering with friends and family wouldn’t feel quite as odd, but an intimate double date seems like too much to handle. Plus, since Sofia is only 19, they can’t exactly meet at a bar for cocktails.
12 Cameron Diaz And Benji Madden And Nicole Richie And Joel Madden
Twins Benji and Joel Madden are musicians who have made it big in the business.
Joel has been married to Nicole Richie for years and Nicole set up her brother-in-law with her friend, actress Cameron Diaz, a few years ago.
They hit it off and are now happily married. Some say the Benji-Cameron pairing seems like a mismatch, but they are living proof that opposites attract, at least when it comes to looks. It must be cool that the brothers can go on double dates. When the wives are friends, it makes the whole dynamic so much better. Cameron has dated some of the biggest A-listers around before finding her “Prince Charming,” so Benji must feel like one lucky guy.
11 Julianne Hough And Brooks Laich And Lauren And Aaron Paul
Dancing “queen” Julianne Hough is married to the love of her life, Brooks Laich, a Canadian hockey player. The couple is close with Lauren and Aaron Paul, so you may just catch the fabulous foursome on a double date. Perhaps they go out dancing so Julianne can show off her amazing moves on the dance floor, or maybe they go to the local movie theatre to catch a flick, since Aaron is all about showbiz. If they go to a hockey game, would Brooks be okay if a rival team wins?
This good-looking foursome must turn heads when they walk into a nightclub or restaurant together.
It’s exciting enough to see a famous couple out and about, but two together is a real fan’s joy. We wonder how they all met but however it was, the chemistry was evident.
10 Alyssa Milano And Dave Bugliari And Shannen Doherty And Kurt Iswarienko
Alyssa Milano and Shannen Doherty used to work together as actresses on the hit television show Charmed, a show about witches. While they seemed to have chemistry in character, rumors have swirled for years that the ladies can’t tolerate one another. Talk about witches! If this is, in fact, true, then the idea of them double dating with their respective hubbies, Dave Bugliari and Kurt Iswarienko, would be totally weird. Unless the gals kiss and make up, there is no chance they would want to meet for drinks or dinner as a foursome. Who knows why the ladies don’t get along, but this wouldn’t be the first feud we’ve heard of where Shannen was involved in “catfighting.” But since Shannen has been diagnosed with cancer, perhaps she and Alyssa can mend their relationship and become close. Maybe not close enough to double date with their spouses, but a text or phone call here and there couldn’t hurt.
9 Tia Mowry And Cory Hardrict And Tamera Mowry-Housley And Adam Housley
“Twinning” has never before been so much fun. Sisters Tia Mowry and Tamera Mowry-Housley can double date with their handsome hubbies, Cory Hardrict and Adam Housley. The four have a lot in common, from their interests to their love of family and their children. And when it comes to their taste in women, we know that Cory and Adam certainly have a type!
It must be a blast for the sisters to go on double dates together knowing their husbands get along.
As twins, there is always a special, unspoken bond, so being able to do lots of things together — including double dating — must be a real thrill. Fans of the hit TV show Sister, Sister probably do a double take when they see Tia and Tamara out together.
8 Courteney Cox And Johnny McDaid And Jennifer Aniston And Justin Theroux (and whoever her next man will be)
Ever since they starred on TV’s Friends together, Courteney Cox and Jennifer Aniston have been BFFs.
They do everything together, from lunching to mani-pedis to vacations.
So, it makes sense that they would enjoy double dating too, no matter who they are with at the time. These days, Courteney is linked to Johnny McDaid and Jen just split from her 2nd husband, Justin Theroux. But no need to worry about the double dates being over and done with. Surely, whoever Jen dates next will be happy to join the crew. Jen will soon move on to another fella before we know it, and if Courteney doesn’t approve of Jen’s man, there is a good chance the relationship won’t last. So, Jen will land a man who Courteney adores, and they can double date just like old times.
7 Mariah Carey And Bryan Tanaka And Jennifer Lopez And Alex Rodriguez
Mariah Carey seems to be high on life as she is fulfilling her “cougar” fantasies by dating backup dancer Bryan Tanaka. And Jennifer Lopez is over the moon for her man, ball player Alex Rodriguez. Although the ladies are in love and their mates love them back, there isn’t much of a relationship between Mariah and Jennifer.
After Mariah famously declared that she “doesn’t know who Jennifer Lopez is,” the rumored friction between the stars has become fodder for trashy tabloids and gossip rags.
Even if the ladies don’t really have a feud going, they are certainly not friends. While you may see Jennifer out with other celebs on double dates, don’t wait for Mariah and Bryan to show up. Mariah probably wants to keep her “boy toy” all to herself anyway.
6 Chrissy Teigen And John Legend And Kim Kardashian and Kanye West
Model and TV personality Chrissy Teigen is musician John Legend’s dream come true. Not only is she undeniably gorgeous, but she is super funny and a delight to be around. It is no wonder that reality darling Kim Kardashian and her hubby Kanye West love to double date with Chrissy and John — makes sense. Kanye and John can chat about the music biz and Kim and Chrissy can discuss fashion and makeup trends.
The fantastic four make for a dynamic group and probably cause a stir whenever they are out and about in public.
We hear that Kanye can be quite opinionated when it comes to music, but how could he have any criticism about the great John Legend? We wonder what this foursome does for fun? Their dates are probably a lot more interesting than ours!
5 Reese Witherspoon And Jim Toth And Kate Winslet And Ned Rocknroll
Reese Witherspoon and Kate Winslet are arguably two of the greatest actresses of our time. They are super talented, versatile, beautiful, and sought-after by producers and directors. They are both married — Reese to Jim Toth, a talent agent, and Kate to Ned Rocknroll, a business man. Since Reese and Kate are good friends, it makes sense that they would enjoy double dating with their respective spouses. Going out as a fabulous foursome is always fun. Reese and Kate can discuss movie making, their latest films, and what they are working on next. The two gents can find plenty to chat about, be it their jobs, current events, or how great their wonderful wives are! Wouldn’t you just love to be a fly on the wall wherever these four spend their time?
4 Kim Kardashian And Kanye West And Taylor Swift And Joe Alwyn
While Kim Kardashian and Kanye West can kick it with Chrissy Teigen and John Legend, don’t expect to see them out and about with Taylor Swift and her man-of-the-moment, Joe Alwyn.
After all the back and forth between Kanye and Taylor, the two seem to be on the outs again after Kanye mentioned her in a rap song and she didn’t like it one bit.
Not to mention, it doesn’t seem like they have much in common anyway, except for their love of music… and the limelight. Okay, so maybe if they weren’t feuding, they could get along swimmingly. We don’t know much about Joe aside from the fact that his acting career is blooming, and he’s smitten with Taylor, but he seems like the quiet type. Kanye may be too much for him. We don’t see these two couples double dating anytime soon, or anytime in the distant future, for that matter.
3 George And Amal Clooney And Cindy Crawford And Rande Gerber
Talk about a good-looking group! Now that actor George Clooney has finally settled down with his impressive and beautiful wife Amal, he seems more laid-back and happier than ever. And their twins must be a true blessing. The handsome couple is close with Rande Gerber and his ageless supermodel wife Cindy Crawford. When these four jet set across the world together, their fabulousness only gets stronger.
They have luxurious homes in the U.S. and abroad and travel as a happy bunch to explore the finest places on Earth.
They are surely a lucky group to be so gorgeous, talented, and successful in their respective fields. But we can’t envy them because they all seem so kind-hearted. Ah, living the good life must be nice. These four certainly hit the jackpot.
2 John Krasinski And Emily Blunt And Luciana And Matt Damon And Blake Lively And Ryan Reynolds
Matt Damon is known to be close buds with Ben Affleck, but he is also pretty good pals with actor John Krasinski and his talented and lovely wife, Emily Blunt. Matt’s wife, Luciana isn’t in the biz, but she spends her time around the Hollywood elite, so she fits in perfectly. These four look like they enjoy each other’s company, so their double dates must be laid-back and fun. We picture them going for brunch or an early supper and going back to one of their homes for nightcaps and plenty of laughs. They can watch movies or talk about up-and-comers in the biz. We’d love to see Matt and John star in a flick together or at least see them all play a game of charades. Does Ben get to come over and hang out with this foursome too?
John and Emily seem to be the "it" couple to hang out with because they've also been spotted with Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds. They've recently been seen together at the Guggenheim Museum to screening of Stanley Tucci's new film, Final Portrait. These two men are hilarious and we bet their wives can definitely give them a run for their money.
1 Kelly Ripa And Mark Consuelos And Michael Strahan And Kayla Quick
These days, Kelly Ripa hosts her popular morning show with the always-entertaining and super-charismatic Ryan Seacrest. But for a period of time, she was co-hosting with Michael Strahan. If you recall, he left the show after being offered a nice gig on Good Morning America. But Kelly had no clue he’d be leaving the show and was completely blindsided. This obviously didn’t go over well, and rumors were running wild that Kelly and Michael were not too pleased with one another.
There was chatter that they didn’t get along on set, so when he left the show, things only got more intense.
If you spot Kelly and her man Mark Consuelos and Michael and his gal Kayla Quick out on a double date, look above to see if pigs are flying.
