13 celebrity couples I am way too emotionally invested in


EARLIER THIS WEEK, the world was left ~*~ shook *~* by the news of Brangelina’s split. After all, they were the reigning King and Queen of Celebrity Couples.

If Brangelina are no more, who can we get emotionally invested in? Who will prove to us that love is real?


1. Chrissy Teigen and  John Legend

If you follow John Legend and Chrissy Teigen on Twitter/Instagram/Snapchat, then you will know these things.

1) They are an extremely beautiful couple.

2) Their baby is extremely beautiful.

3) They seem to eat decadent lasagne dishes all the time.

4) They tease each other on Twitter and manage not to be insufferable about it. Pro-tip: if you’re ever feeling blue, log onto Twitter and search “from:chrissyteigen john legend”. You will not be disappointed.

2. Michael Sheen and Sarah Silverman

Michael Sheen and Sarah Silverman have only been dating since 2014, but in just two years, they have become The Couple You’d Happily Pal Around With of our hearts.

They binge-watch prestige television together…

Rip the piss out of each other on Twitter…

And generally just behave like absolute dotes.

Imagine the dinner parties they’d throw.

“Anyone for more red wine?”

“Yes please, Michael and Sarah.”

The dream.

3. Sarah Paulson and Holland Taylor

Sarah Paulson (American Horror Story, The People vs. OJ Simpson) and Holland Taylor (Two and a Half Men) began dating last year, and are a fascinating couple for a number of reasons.

  • Holland Taylor is 34 years older than Sarah Paulson.
  • They are extremely public with their displays of affection. Seriously, they never stop tweeting each other.

Here’s Holland Taylor raving about how beautiful Sarah Paulson is.

Here’s Sarah Paulson basically saying “I LOVE HOLLAND TAYLOR”

Here’s Sarah Paulson calling out Holland Taylor for eating all the ice-cream.

While such public displays of affection are typically a little bit nauseating, there is something very, very sweet and endearing about Paulson and Taylor, so we’re willing to give them a pass.

Carry on, darling angels.

4. William H. Macy and Felicity Huffman

Is there anything better than when you discover two people you love are an item? Nope.

Felicity Huffman and William H. Macy have been married 19 years, which is a lifetime in Hollywood years, and they are frankly adorable.

Like, just try not be utterly charmed by this.

Or this.


5. Hubes and BOD

If any Irish couple embody the term #relationshipgoals, it’s Amy Huberman and Brian O’Driscoll. (O’Druberman?) If anything ever happens to them, we’ll know it’s time to just pack it all in.

6. Victoria and David Beckham

When news of Brad and Angelina’s split broke earlier this week, the United Nations held an emergency conference call with Victoria and David Beckham to inform them that stability in the world was now *fully dependent* on them staying together.

After 17 years of marriage, four children and a few bumps along the way, they’re all we have. Also, may we remind you that an afternoon spent Googling ‘david beckham victoria beckham wedding photos’ is an afternoon well spent?

7. Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth

On the surface, Miley and Liam don’t seem particularly suited to each other at all. She’s a fan of weed and Wayne Coyne, and he’s… Australian?

But for whatever reason, they seem to click. We’re rooting for these crazy kids.

8. Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson


9. Calista Flockhart and Harrison Ford

Calista Flockhart and Harrison Ford are #goals if only because they make a really big deal out of Halloween every year.

If you search their name, you just get loads of headlines about how besotted they are with each other.

10. Kim Kardashian and Kanye West

Say what you will about Kimye, but I have genuinely never seen two people who fancy each other more.

Can we please read this quote from Kanye about Kim?

When was the last time you were compared to a fighter jet or dinosaur, eh?

11. Rhea Perlman and Danny DeVito

When the going gets tough, just remind yourself that Rhea Perlman and Danny DeVito are still together.

This is what true love is.

12. Jenny Slate and Chris Evans

Sure, they’ve only been dating for a couple of months, but we need them to stay together for at least another little while so we get some quality Instagram content.

13. Chris O’Dowd and Dawn O’Porter

Admit it: you secretly think that there’s a decent chance you’ll be able to hang out with Chris O’Dowd and Dawn O’Porter one day. “Sure, they’re basically Irish and they’re so down-to-earth,” you think. “I’m sure I’ll bump into them in a pub some day.”

The dream: drinking a pint of plain and discussing how nice Marks & Spencer clothes are with Dawn O’Porter.

I mean…
