Although our beloved celebrities may not be the perfect role models for healthy relationships, there are still things we can learn from them, and have fun with it. The one thing that stands out on this list is the fact that there are no instances of older women dating younger men, which has been seen so often on the Hollywood dating scene. Even without it, this is one of the most intriguing lists of celebrity couples, in addition to being the latest and most up-to-date.
Selena Gomez and The Weekend
Relationship goal #1: Make sure your next squeeze is just as hot as your previous one. Clearly, this is much easier said than done, except when you’re the queen of Instagram – Selena Gomez! Ms. Gomez and The Weekend were first spotted kissing outside Giorgio Baldi restaurant in LA in early January, throwing their fans for a loop, only to confirm their romance several months later. They have since travelled the globe together, making short stops in Canada, France, Italy and Argentina, and making Biebs jealous.
Rooney Mara and Joaquin Phoenix
Relationship goal #2: Make sure your co-star falls head-over-heels for you. Pulling a Mr and Mrs Smith is just as trendy as it was 12 years ago when Ms Jolie and Mr Pitt did it, and who better to follow in their footsteps than Rooney Mara and Joaquin Phoenix! This unlikely pair met on the set of Mary Magdalene, and the news of their romance first broke out in January. The couple made their red carpet debut together at the Cannes Film Festival in March, and according to Page Six, “they have been spending a lot of time together”.
Alex Rodriguez and Jennifer Lopez
Relationship goal #3: Score a date with a notorious womanizer, but make sure he’s not hotter than you. After her split from Drake, JLo was quick to move on with a former MLB star, Alex Rodriguez, in March. They both have kids from previous relationships, and spend lots of time with their families, which JLo seems to be liking a lot. A source told People, “it’s just fun now” because she’s well aware of his womanizing ways, so she’s being extra cautious, but her kids Max and Emme she shares with Marc Anthony seem to have grown quite fond of him!
Brad Pitt and Sienna Miller
Relationship goal #4: Find a hot blond actress’s shoulder to cry on after a failed marriage. Even though some of us thought that Brangelina would die of old age together, they shocked the world with the news of their split in the fall of 2016. Since then, Brad has moved on with Sienna Miller, who starred in his 2016 film, The Lost City of Z, and according to US Weekly, “they have been spending some time together”.
Lady Gaga and Christian Carino
Clearly, “it wasn’t love” with Taylor Kinney, but life goes on whether we like it or not. The “Million Reasons” singer started dating her Creative Artists Agency agent Christian Carino in February, which was confirmed just a few days after they were seen kissing at the Super Bowl in Houston, following her mind-blowing halftime performance. Although we wish them all the best, this move seems like a rebound on her part more than anything else, and we doubt they’ll be making many more celebrity couples lists in the future.
