20 Celebrity Couples Who Were Together 10 Years Ago
Love in Hollywood is fleeting.
For one reason or another, relationships just don’t stick for the rich and famous. Despite their frivolous interchange of boyfriends and girlfriends, each relationship mattered. Heck, they still do! We can clearly remember these couples as they were, young and wealthy with no care in the world. Some of these units had an obvious shelf life, but others truly seemed like they would last — and some of them even did.
Here’s a look back at some of our favorite couples from the past that still reminds us that true love exists even if it’s for a short while.
1. Madonna and Jesus Luz
Madonna has had countless boyfriends, and at least two husbands, but the lady clearly has a thing for Latin men. She dated Jesus Luz, a Brazilian model, and DJ for quite some time. Now, Luz is married (with someone else) and a father of two.
2. Selena Gomez and Taylor Lautner
Oh Selena…we love her hopeless romantic aura, especially back in the day when she dated Taylor Lautner from the “Twilight” franchise. But then he moved on to Taylor Swift. Wow.
3. Eva Longoria & Tony Parker
When Eva Longoria broke out into the scene as a Desperate Housewife, she had that whole Hollywood picturesque life down cold. Her relationship with NBA star Tony Parker catapulted them into a real power couple. Alas, they divorced. But do not fret, Longoria found love once again with José Bastón, and is now a mother of a baby boy.
4. Alex Rodriguez and Kate Hudson
Alex Rodriguez has been around the block, to say the least. From Madonna to Cameron Diaz, the boy has a thing for blondes. Just take his time with Kate Hudson. Perhaps he learned his lesson and decided to stick with brunettes.
5. Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony
Speaking of A-Rod, his new love — Jennifer Lopez — was married to Marc Anthony ten years ago. We really thought this was it for both them. What did we know!
6. Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey
When Nick Cannon got Mariah Carey’s name tattooed on his back, we should have known that these two were doomed for splitsville, and yet we still hoped for the best.
7. Nicole Richie and Joel Madden
America’s bad girl, Nicole Ritchie found her bad boy and soul mate in Good Charlotte’s frontman Joel Madden. This is another success story because they are still together and have two kids.
8. Sarah Michelle Gellar and Freddie Prinze Jr.
The union of Freddie Prinze Jr. and Michelle Geller is like a page out of the movie scene. The two did meet on the set of “I Know What You Did Last Summer,” which came out in 1997, and they have been together ever since.
9. Jessica Alba and Cash Warren
California native Jessica Alba — who now runs a multi-million empire — met her baby daddy, Cash Warren in 2004, and got married in 2008. Still going strong till this day.
10. Justin Timberlake and Cameron Diaz
Cameron Diaz dated former ‘NSYNC-er Justin Timberlake post-Britney Spears in the late aughts. They dated for a couple of years until they both started dating other people.
11. Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem
Penélope Cruz and Javier Bardem are Spanish royalty. Way before they even got married, these two were the most famous Spanish actors in American cinema that one would have thought “why aren’t these to together?” Well, eventually, after years of meeting on the set, they finally did and have been married since 2010.
12. Demi Lovato and Wilmer Valderama
Between 2010 to 2016, Demi Lovato began a long-term relationship with actor Wilmer Valderrama. Despite their 12-year age difference, these two have remained in contact long after their breakup.
13. Cassie and Diddy
In 2007, mode and performer Cassie became the face of Diddy’s fashion label Sean John, but the couple didn’t make it official until 2012. In a 2013 interview, Cassie said about Diddy that “just being around him is a completely inspiring experience.” The couple recently split up, but it’s clear the hip hop mogul wants her back.
14. Matt Damon and Luciana Damon
When actor Matt Damon spotted waitress Luciana Bozán Barroso in Miami in 2003, the boy was hooked. The couple married two years later and have been together ever since. The couple has four daughters together.
15. Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves
Another love at first sight moment came when Matthew McConaughey met model Camila Alves at an L.A. club in 2006, even though he wasn’t ready to settle down. “Out of the corner of my eye, this sort of aqua-green figure went floating across the frame about 20 feet in front of me,” McConaughey said in a 2016 interview. McConaughey and Alves married in 2012 and have three children together.
16. Zoe Saldana and Keith Britton

Way before Zoe Saldana was a loving mom of three boys with Italian hubby artist Marco Perego, she dated and was engaged to Keith Britton. Britton, a CEO of a fashion website, and Saldana were together for 11 years but broke up in 2011.
17. Jennifer Esposito and Bradley Cooper
Before Bradley Cooper became the mega-famous, Academy Award-nominated actor and director, that he is today, he was just a struggling actor in 2006. That’s the year he married actress Jennifer Esposito. Unfortunately, the couple divorced after five months of being together.
18. Lenny Kravitz and Adriana Lima
The now-retired Victoria Secret model, Adriana Lima was actually engaged to artist Lenny Kravitz but it was all on the down low. He spoke about their engagement briefly in a 2004 interview — during the height of his career. They both, however, went their separate ways. In 2008, the model became engaged to Serbian NBA player Marko Jarić.
19. Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber
One of the most tumultuous relationships in Hollywood has to be that of Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez. The couple met in late 2010 and began an off-and-on relationship for the next few years. They were back together in 2017 but broke up soon after. Bieber is now married to model Hailey Baldwin.
20. Anna Kournikova and Enrique Iglesias
In 2001, Enrique Iglesias met his baby mama Russian tennis player Anna Kournikova and were hot and heavy for several years. While they broke up in 2013, they soon got back together and had twins in 2017.
