Do you remember the early '00s, the halcyon days when the greatest couple ever were still together? First meeting on the All-New Mickey Mouse Club, Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears became an official couple in 2000, melting hearts the world over. She later revealed that he had been her first kiss. Awwwww.
As the director of Spears's film Crossroads Tamra Davis remembers, they were the perfect couple:
"It was just the most beautiful relationship, seeing the two of them together and how love-y they were. They were just so close, and she was such a supporter of his. He worked just as hard as her. It was like, she would be doing rehearsals and he would be doing rehearsals. They really knew that life together.”
Sadly, only two years later they had broken up after allegations surfaced that Britney had cheated on Justin, shattering us all to the bottom of our broken hearts.
Not to worry though, as Justin Timberlake has finally responded to the possibility of him and Britney working together. When the star was cornered by E! News who revealed that Britney said she would love to collaborate with him, a visibly delighted Justin replied:
This is wonderful news for fans of both Timberlake and Spears, as despite being lovers, they have never worked on a professional pop record together. The probable result? Pop heaven. But what made them such an adorable couple? We here at Movie Pilot have listed five, irrefutable reasons why they were the cutest ever.
1. When Britney Told Us How Much She Loved Him
In a 2001 profile in The Observer, Britney was asked if the media pressure surrounding their relationship was too much for them. She just had the best response:
"When people get too personal, it bothers me. But I'm not ashamed at all to say that I love him from the bottom of my heart. As far as love is concerned, with him, too much is not enough. He's everything"
2. When They Performed Together On The All-New Mickey Mouse Club
Both performers learned the singing and dancing trade on the All-New Mickey Mouse Club. This old clip from 1994 shows what remarkably precocious performers they really were. Who knew from watching this they would become the highest profile couple in the industry?
3. When All She Wrote Was 'Britney and Justin'
On the set of Crossroads, Britney Spears was given a notebook and told to write in it with the thoughts of her character. However, when the director finally saw it, it turned out that:
"All she was writing was ‘Britney and Justin,’ all these little curlicues. It was like looking at a teenage girl’s musings — hearts and butterflies and Justin’s name."
Get your tissues out.

4. When They Went On That Double Denim Date
When you are in love, truly in love, the rest of the world simply doesn't matter, you become impervious to their criticisms. So when your other half says, "You know what, why don't we both wear Double Denim?," you go along with it. Because that is what love is — looking extremely suspect in public with the person you adore:
5. When Timberlake Said He Would Never Get Over Her
Getting over an ex is hard. Its even harder when your ex is Britney Spears. In an interview with Rolling Stone Timberlake was remarkably candid regarding his feelings for her:
"When we were together it was bliss, like something from a damn fairy tale. But right now, I just don't see – it's just so hard. So hard. I'm the type of person, if I'm not exactly sure about something, then I'll wait it out and see. I may not ever get over her. That's why I'm kind of chilling. I'm waiting to see. I do have to come to the realization that I might never."
