You're probably pretty aware of celeb couples who are together right now. Even if you try to avoid it, their romance is right in our faces adorning the front covers of various publications.

Let's not forget the happy couples who once dated! You may even be totally unaware that these famous faces once dated or you may have (willingly) totally forgotten about it. Let me take you back in time to when some very unexpected celebs were crazy in love.

10. Ryan Reynolds and Alanis Morissette

The pair were inseparable between 2002-2007, they even got engaged. Alanis used music as her form of medicine to help her get through the split. Her album ''Flavors of Entanglement'' was a record about recovery for her and rising from the ashes after splitting up with the X-Men star. In an interview after the split the singer was bizarrely asked if she has a message for Ryan, her response was.

''I have enough distance, so to be perfectly honest I'm not really that focused on it. I wish anyone whom I love, whether I hang out with them or not, great success and love in their life. So - Godspeed.''

9. Natalie Portman and Moby

Back in 2001 this odd match briefly dated. Moby was pretty nonchalant about the whole thing and told The Examiner that:

''I guess in some people's eyes, nerds might be mildly sexy - and, as a nerd, I'm certainly happy to enjoy some of the effects of that - but as far as the very brief affair I had with Natalie, it's made me the target of a lot of nerd wrath. You can't date Luke Skywalker's mom and not have them hate your guts.''

8. Christian Bale and Drew Barrymore

Maybe this one doesn't count as much, but this unexpected pair once shared one single date together. Christian revealed in an interview how the actress blew him off .. (And no, not in that way)

''We went to see some bloody awful horror film, and that was the end of it. She never called again''

7. Tom Cruise and Cher

I have so much hair envy right now! Anyway, the couple dated way back in 1987 and had a 16 year age difference. Despite this big age gap Cher was totally:

''Crazy about him''

6. Robert Downey Jr. and Sarah Jessica Parker

RDJ and SJP were together between 1984 and 1991 after meeting on the set of Firstborn. Sadly it was RDJ's addictions which tore this couple apart. Robert continued to have respect for his ex:

''She provided me a home and understanding. She tried to help me. She was so miffed when I didn’t get my act together. Sarah Jessica would pull me out of a hangover, and we’d go pick out furniture together. She is a force of nature!''

5. Macauley Culkin and Mila Kunis

The couple dated for 8 years up until 2011. This was when Mila decided to close the door on their relationship and left Culkin Home Alone.

The young actress revealed her fears of settling down in an interview.

''Not to say that I don't believe in it, but it's just not something that's important to me. But I will have children. I'm too selfish to have them now, but when I do, I don't feel like I need to be married.''

4. Micheal Keaton and Courtney Cox

This fairly odd couple were together for six years, after their split in 1995 Courtney didn't show any hard feelings.

''It's the most important relationship I've ever had, and I think he's the most wonderful person I've ever met''

3. Liam Neeson and Dame Helen Mirren

The two former love birds met during the filming of Excalibur back in 1980. They stayed together for four years before going their separate ways. Mirren once said.

“We loved each other. It was difficult to let go”.

2. Ashton Kutcher and January Jones

January Jones and Kutcher were together between 1998-2002, but Ashton had not polished his nice guy persona just yet. In an interview with GQ, January explained just why it didn't work.

''He was not supportive of my acting, He was like, I don’t think you’re going to be good at this. So—fuck you! He only has nice things to say now.If anything, I should thank him. Because the minute you tell me I can’t do something, that’s when I’m most motivated.”

1. Ryan Gosling and Sandra Bullock

Even though they had a big 16 year age difference this didn't stop the couple dating between 2002-2003. After their breakup Bullock was:

''Broken hearted.''
