This pair went out for a whole five years, getting engaged in 2004 before finally calling it off in 2007. Morissette, of course, wrote an album about the break up.

Liam and Helen met on the set of Neeson’s first film, Excalibur, in 1981, and went out for four years, even moving in together at one point.

“I fell in love with Helen Mirren,” Liam told CBS in 2014.

Oh my god. Can you imagine riding horses in shiny suits of armour, having sword fights and stuff, and you’re falling in love with Helen Mirren? It doesn’t get any better than that.

3. Liam Neeson and Brooke Shields

Liam you sly dog! Brooke claims that the actor asked her to marry him twice during their three-month romance in 1992. She wrote in her memoir:

Liam wooed me with his brogue, his poetry and his shitty choice of Pinot Grigio… I was so impressed with going out with a real movie star.

4. Ryan Gosling and Sandra Bullock

Long before he was Mr Grey (or Paul Spector), Jamie Dornan was a model, and met Keira Knightley at a photoshoot. They went out for two years, wore some truly hideous outfits, and were “hounded” (Jamie’s words) by the paparazzi.

7. Jamie Dornan and Mischa Barton
