For Hollywood and music stars, there are few things that can be kept secret since paparazzi are everywhere spotting famous people’s private moments, especially when it comes to their love lives. However, some couples managed to stay slightly out of the limelight and we can hardly even remember they were ever together.
At TECH ULTRAS, we want to refresh your memory by looking back at some couples on and offscreen who were dating or even more than that, living together, but have since separated and moved on to better life partners. Scroll down with us because the bonus at the end will make you smile the biggest.
Ryan Gosling and Sandra Bullock
Ryan Gosling will always be the ultimate romantic guy from La La Land and Sandra Bullock was always adored by the masses because of her sweet nature. Well, these actors got together after they met on the set of the 2002 movie, Murder by Numbers and stayed together for about 2 years. Their 21-year age difference didn’t matter at all and they seemed pretty happy together.
Jessica Biel and Chris Evans
We’re sure that just like us, you can’t imagine Jessica Biel with anyone else but her husband, Justin Timberlake. However, Biel once dated Chris Evans for 5 years and during interviews, they would talk about the possibility of marriage. After they co-starred in a film about a couple who got separated called London, they actually decided to go their separate ways, following new roles.
Matt Damon and Winona Ryder
No one can deny that Matt Damon and Winona Ryder are both good actors with pleasant personas. But many people are surprised to learn that they were once a couple for a few years. It was actually Gwyneth Paltrow who set them up. As Ryder said in an interview later on, “Matt couldn’t be a greater, nicer guy. I’m really lucky that I’m on good terms with him.”
Elizabeth Taylor and Colin Farrell
Since we’re talking about Colin Farrell, we’ll surprise you with the relationship he had with someone 40 years his senior, Elizabeth Taylor. After the legendary actress passed away at age 79, Farrell decided to honor their relationship by admitting it and saying that it was the last romantic relationship he’d had.
Julia Roberts and Liam Neeson
Julia Roberts was only 19 years old when she was charmed by Liam Neeson’s personality and appearance. And who wouldn’t be — he’s Liam Neeson after all! When Neeson was 30 and Roberts was 19, they had an affair for a few years but sadly followed different paths which led them both to success.
Helen Mirren and Liam Neeson
It would be really great to think that 2 great actors were, in fact, a real-life couple. That’s the case with Helen Mirren and Liam Neeson at the beginning of their careers back in the ’80s after starring in the 1981 film, Excalibur. Helen Mirren said that they weren’t dating, but were living together and were pretty serious about each other.
Bonus: Liam Neeson and Susan Sarandon
Susan Sarandon was rumored to be Liam Neeson’s new lover at one time. When Susan denied that something like this was true, she added, “Who wouldn’t want to be in a romance with Liam? Oh my God, the man is perfect! He’s handsome, he’s charming, he’s Liam Neeson, who doesn’t dream of that?” They might not be a real couple but they would sure make a good fit if you ask us.
