9 weird former celeb couples that should have given it another shot

Just imagine a world where these guys stayed together.

THESE CELEB COUPLES may long be forgotten, but imagine this trash world if they got back together.

It’d almost make things better. Almost.

1. Renee Zellweger and Damien Rice

Damo went out with the Bridget Jones star back in 2005 and honestly, we all thought he was abandoning us to live his best celebrity life in LA. But, you can take the lad out of Kildare etc. Rumour had it that they were spotted at Tesco in Celbridge. So glam.

All this after he declined to go to the Oscars with her. Bring them back, give us the thrill of Zellweger house-hunting in Galway again.

2. Matthew Perry and Lizzy Caplan

Yes, Chandler and Janice from Mean Girls dated. For AGES.

Well, six years to be exact.

Between 2006 and 2012, these two legendary characters were madly in love. NO I do not care that Lizzie is now happily married. I need them to settle their differences and get a reality show where they both stay in character forever. Is this too much to ask?

3. 50 Cent and Chelsea Handler

I only really want this to get back together so 50 Cent will be distracted and will stop trolling people on Instagram. Also, what’s Chelsea up to these days?

Also, the way he tried to woo her was kinda sweet:

This is how it started, he was on my show. He was cute, and you know I flirt with all the cute guys on my show. And I thought he was just adorable. Then, he started sending me flowers but ridiculous amounts of like 50 white roses, and it was like laughable. I was like, ‘Get these out of my office! This is so embarrassing.’

Imagine 50 Cent doing this.

4. Jamie Dornan and Mischa Barton

Yes, these two briefly dated and I at LEAST want to see them become friends again. There’s something quite ‘idyllic 00s teen crush pairing’ about them? Oh, what could have been.

5. Liam Neeson and Helen Mirren

Everyone’s minds were collectively blown when these two recently appeared on Graham Norton and revealed that they used to date. What a time it must have been. Completely disrespecting their current relationships, I think they should get back together. Do it for the internet, Lelen.

6. Alanis Morissette and Ryan Reynolds

If nothing else, Alanis would absolutely not partake in whatever social media back-and-forth Ryan would try to convince her to do. Go climb some mountains together.

7. Chloe Green and Marc Anthony

Why would I ever want this couple to get back together? Well, they’re just the height of weirdness. What did these two even discuss? I genuinely can’t think of anything. Maybe Jennifer Lopez? I know that’s what I’d want to discuss with Marc Anthony.

Chloe is now of course with Prison Bae, Jeremy Meeks. She loves a random coupling.

8. Andrea Corr and Jason Priestley

The brief romance between Andrea Corr and Jason Priestly is one that I consistently think about. It’s WILD. Andrea and The Corrs performed on Beverly Hills 90210 back in the day, and one of its stars Jason Priestly later admitted to shifting her.

But it didn’t end there.

Jason decided to fly to Dublin to surprise Andrea at a fashion event and ended up getting the cold shoulder. We’re guessing Andrea isn’t on board, so.

9. Kim Kardashian and Nick Lachey

IMAGINE the reality show that the rekindling of this relationship would produce? I’d be bet into it. However, considering they’re both apparently happily married, and the fact that Nick said that Kim ‘used’ him to get famous, it’s unlikely this will come to fruition. A tragic loss for all Newlyweds fans.
