20 Celebrity Couples We Wish Were Still Together (PHOTOS)

In romantic comedies, the film always ends with the boy and girl realizing they're meant to be together and living happily ever after. In real life, however, things are a bit less clear-cut for some of Hollywood's golden couples, who despite seeming so perfect together, often end up breaking our hearts by dumping their partners.


Blame it on nostalgia, but there are some celeb couples, such as Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner, we are still rooting for. Click through for 20 famous pairs we wish had never broken up.

    There's no couple that truly knows how to mess with our emotions like Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield. After breaking up in April 2015, they made us believe in love again when they got back together, only to disappoint us when they split for a second time just six months later. Still, they supposedly "remain close and are on good terms," so perhaps this is just another bump in the road of their relationship.

  • Jennifer Westfeldt & Jon Hamm

    Unlike his Mad Men character who was a serial womanizer, we loved that, in real life, Jon Hamm had been with girlfriend Jennifer Westfeldt for 18 years and called her the "love of his life." Sadly, they split in the summer of 2015.

  • Jennifer Garner & Ben Affleck

    If you read tabloid magazines, Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck, who announced their intention to divorce in June 2015 after 10 years of marriage, may be calling off their divorce any day now or they may be pregnant with a secret baby. Those rumors are all likely to be false, but it doesn't mean we aren't hoping for them to be true!

  • Khloe Kardashian & Lamar Odom

    When Khloe Kardashian faithfully stayed by Lamar Odom's side during his 2015 hospitalization, tabloids had a field day reporting about their dramatic reunion. Sadly, while Khloe has proven herself to be the loyal ex-wife, she made a statement that she was not getting back together with the troubled NBA star. Still, we hope that Lamar's OD was the rock-bottom experience he needed to turn his life around and perhaps win back his wife.

    It's been years since Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson split for good, but Twilight fans and believers in young love still want to see the two reunite, despite the fact that the two actors have both moved on to other relationships.

  • Katy Perry & Russell Brand

    They were only married for two years, and by all accounts, Katy Perry and Russell Brand's breakup was acrimonious, but there is something about the coupling of a reformed bad boy comedian and a good girl-turned-sexy pop singer that we miss.

  • Rachel McAdams & Ryan Gosling

    Was there ever a better on- and off-camera couple than Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling? As Ryan's character in The Notebook declares, "It wasn't over; it still isn't over." Here's hoping that goes for their real life relationship as well.

  • Amy Poehler & Will Arnett

    We weren't laughing when two of our favorite funny people, Amy Poehler and Will Arnett, who were the Lucy and Ricky of our era, announced their plans to divorce in 2012 after 9 years of marriage.

  • Helena Bonham Carter & Tim Burton

    They weren't just partners in life, but in movies too. The end of Helena Bonham Carter and Tim Burton's 13-year relationship likely means we'll never see them collaborate onscreen again either.

  • Jennifer Lopez & Ben Affleck

    We are not alone in our wish that Bennifer 1.0 will get back together, now that they're both technically single. However, let's just hope that they're smart enough not to make a Gigli 2.

  • Heidi Klum & Seal

    Remember their crazy couples' Halloween costumes? We were saddened that a such a fun-loving couple like Heidi Klum and Seal, who renewed their wedding vows every year, ultimately broke up. 

  • Zac Efron & Vanessa Hudgens

    Maybe it was unrealistic to expect a teenage romance to last forever, but High School Musical stars Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens were so cute together that we hoped it would.

    Prior to the news of their divorce, there was "no doubt" in our mind that Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale were going to stay together forever! Sadly, Gwen has already moved on to somebody new.

  • Reese Witherspoon & Ryan Phillippe

    Cruel Intentions co-stars Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe made such cute kids together during their 8-year-marriage, and who can forget the way Ryan jumped up out of his seat when Reese won a Golden Globe for Walk the Line? They just don't make couples like this anymore.

  • Jessica Simpson & Nick Lachey

    Their reality show Newlyweds caused us to invest in Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey's relationship, but the pay-off wasn't great. They divorced after just four years of marriage.

  • Courteney Cox & David Arquette

    We loved the goofy, sweet nature of Courteney Cox and David Arquette's relationship. "We had 15 years of a friendship and love with each other and a child together. She's my best friend and I love her will all my heart," David said of their marriage, which ended in 2010.

  • Demi Moore & Bruce Willis

    If there was a Brangelina of 1980s Hollywood, it was Demi Moore and Bruce Willis. The couple called it quits after 13 years of marriage but remain amicable enough to pose for photos at red carpet events alongside their new spouses.

  • Miranda Kerr & Orlando Bloom

    Even though they split in 2013, rumor has it that Miranda Kerr and Orlando Bloom were still hooking up as of May 2015. Perhaps there's hope that this super-pretty couple will get back together.

  • Melanie Griffith & Antonio Banderas

    They were one of Hollywood's longest lasting and most stable relationships, that is until everything fell apart in 2014. Even Melanie Griffith's arm tattoo tribute to Antonio Banderas has disappeared.

  • Miranda Lambert & Blake Shelton

    The country superstars gave us some great duets while they were together, and now that they're divorcing after four years of marriage, the promise of inspired breakup songs doesn't take away our disappointment about their breakup.
