With the aromatic scent of love still lingering in the air after Valentine’s Day, I felt it was appropriate to celebrate the love that society is so interested in. It is not the love between the lowly peasants like you and I, it is the love that blankets the magazines in line at the grocery stores.
I try not to get to wrapped up in Hollywood love but that doesn’t mean that it doesn’t perk my interest from time to time. I don’t care that Spencer Pratt has a new single out or that Lindsay Lohan stole a necklace. I think all celebrity news, good and bad, are categorized together as gossip and I would like to take a very short amount of time to highlight the couples that not only stay out of trouble but seem to have something a little special as well.
10. Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta Jones:
With a combined age of 105 years of age, these two love-birds top the list being the oldest couple. They both have aged like fine wines and despite their bumps in the road over the years they are still together. They have battled cancer and divorce and still come out on top, which says a lot about the strength of their relationship.
9. Seal and Heidi Klum:
Seal was definitely kissed by a rose. One might wonder what the world’s most esteemed super model saw in Brit with one name and who wears leather trousers year round but I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Her great genes and his lack of jeans have produced two of the cutest little chaps to ever have American/British/German accents. Heidi is obviously the more outspoken half of the team but Seal shows his love in other ways by spending time with the kids and writing her little ditties.
8. A-Rod and Cameron Diaz:
Aww isn’t puppy love just precious? With both of these kids having their own laundry list of past relationships, it is nice to see them show their love for each other even if over 100,000,000 people are watching. I know I would have some insecurities about being hand-fed popcorn in front of the entire country. Their love is still fresh and new, they probably had a fight last night where Cam brought up the past, talking about Justin Timberlake but I think they have what it takes to last. Stay tuned.
7. Ryan Reynolds and Sandra Bullock:
It is nice to see that the spark that was originally ignited on the set of their movie, “The Proposal,” was able to eventually catch fire. The chemistry between them was obvious but the timing was poor as they both had their own significant others. However, everything happens for a reason and it seems as though fate had a little bit to do with these two reconvening at a time in their lives where they both probably needed each other. Awwww.
6. David and Victoria Beckham:
Becks and Posh Spice are to bloody pretty for their own good. They have the most major relationship to come out of Great Britian since Prince Charles and Lady Diana. It is amazing that with both of them being such high-powered stars from their country were able to outlast and outrun the dangerous British paparazzis and that alone has to stand for something. Posh in her 8 inch pumps and Becks in his Adidas Predators have been able to prove all the critics wrong as they take Southern California by storm.
5. Jay-Z and Beyonce:
This video tells it all as Beyonce and Jay-Z truly are the Bonnie and Clyde of our generation. HOV’s thuggish ruggish bones have been able to go from project housing to managing multiple projects at the same time. With both of them having insanely busy schedules they have been able to maintain a stable relationship. They are the exception to the rule concerning long-distance relationships and give hope for everyone else going through what they go through on a much larger scale. They’re down to ride to the very end.
4. Bennifer 2.0:
Normally, I don’t like anything that comes out of Boston but I have a great amount of respect for Ben Affleck. Beniffer 1.0 (with Jennifer Lopez) didn’t work out in the end and the more down to earth, Jennifer Garner seemed to be the right fit for this new catch phrase and family. They seem like they are happy together and it is evident through their interactions and interviews with each other that what they have is different from most.
Their relationship didn’t start of as smoothly as most do, with Brad cheating on Jenifer Anniston with Angelina Jolie while they filmed “Mr. and Mrs. Smith” together but they are by far the most followed celebrity couple. They definitely are a little out there but that doesn’t mean they don’t have a healthy relationship. I’m not convinced they have what it takes to remain together until they both look like “Benjamin Button” but that is just me.
2. Ashton Kutcher, Demi Moore, and Bruce Willis:
Speaking of followers, Ashton Kutcher isn’t punking anyone when he buys billboard space across the country to get people to follow him on Twitter and it is actually a great investment for him in the long run, but that is a whole other story. Demi is definitely robbing the cradle a little bit with her having kids with Bruce Willis almost the same age as Ashton but to me it the fact that Ashton, Demi, Bruce, and the kids are all on great terms with each other that makes Kutchers, Moores, and Willises the most functional dysfunctional family in Hollywood.
1. Will and Jada Smith:
How friggin’ cute are they? The real Mr. and Mrs. Smith have produced the most adorable family of all time. Trey is one of the best prep wide receivers in the country. Jaden is busy becoming the ultimate triple threat of actor/rapper/ninja. And Willow is busy whipping her hair back and forth making people all over the world wanting to just pinch her cheeks. If my kids can be half as cute, athletic, and talented as they are I will be one happy man.
