Ah, the sweet scent of love is effusing everywhere … the awards season notwithstanding! Although relationships in Hollywood seem ephemeral, there are a few celebrity couples who we stand by on the red carpet. Find out who they are below and check out their latest, stunning sartorial impressions:
Justin Timberlake & Jessica Biel
Together Since: 2008
The relationship between the musician and the Blade: Trinity actress was not without its ups and downs but the power couple bounced back stronger. After a short split in 2011, they quickly reunited on the altar a year later, proving that absence does make the heart grow fonder.
Ryan Reynolds & Blake Lively
Together Since: 2012
We are not sure if the relationship gets any cuter than Blake Lively repinning pictures of Ryan Reynolds whenever she scrolls past one on Pinterest. On the topic of her impeccable fashion sense, Blake Lively attributed it to the Deadpool actor: “I’m very lucky to be with someone who has better taste than me. We influence each other in different ways.”
John Legend & Chrissy Teigen
Together Since: 2007
For this inseparable pair, it was less love-at-first-sight and more love-at-first-text. In an interview with ET, Legend recalled the moment he fell in love with Chrissy Teigen, aside from the obvious:
“We were texting a lot, and I started to see her sense of humor … We would talk on the phone, and I just started to fall in love with how engaging and witty and funny she is.”
If you need more reasons to root for this two, John Legend’s All Of Me music video starring none other than the Sports Illustrated model will sway you.
Kristen Bell & Dax Shepard
Together Since: 2007
In an interview with Flare magazine, Kristen Bell admitted that her first encounter with husband Dax Shepard was “not electric”. However, sparks began to fly soon after. The supportive couple only got married when same-sex marriage became legal in California, in an unassuming wedding ceremony that cost them nothing but US$142.
Ellen Degeneres & Portia De Rossi
Together Since: 2004
If you don’t believe in love at first sight, look to Ellen Degeneres and Portia de Rossi. According to Portia, she knew Ellen was the one “when I first laid eyes on her, but it took me three years to actually tell her.” And their relationship has set the bar for over a decade since.
There’s no doubt that the talk show host feels the same way. Often expressing their candor via playful pranks that they pull on each other, Ellen Degeneres reflected her wife’s adoring sentiments when she said, “I’m going to be with her until the day I die and I know that.”
