Love knows no boundaries, especially in Hollywood.
In the wake of Katy Perry and Russell Brand’s, we’re celebrating the day of love with a look back at some past couples that seriously raised eyebrows. Although most are now history, a few are still going strong. We’re talking to you, Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise.
From McCaulay Culkin and Mila Kunis to Michael Jackson and Lisa-Marie, here are 20 celebrity couples that made us do a double take.
– 50 Cent and Chelsea Handler: One of the most unexpected hookups was Handler’s short-lived romance with rapper 50 Cent. The two met when he appeared as a guest on her show.
– Mila Kunis and Macaulay Culkin: The “Black Swan” and “Home Alone” stars dated for eight years before calling it quits last January.
– John Mayer and Jessica Simpson: Mayer has dated some high-profile women—Jennifer Aniston, Jennifer Love Hewitt and Taylor Swift. We couldn’t include all his romances, but most memorable may be his near nine-month relationship with Jessica Simpson. After their romance was over, John Mayer described Simpson as quite addictive in a 2010 interview with Playboy. “Yeah, that girl is like crack cocaine to me.”
– Renee Zellweger and Jack White: At one time, Zellweger was dating the sexiest man alive, Bradley Cooper. Beforehand, she dated White Stripes’ frontrunner Jack White for more than a year and a half after meeting on the set of “Cold Mountain.”
