Celebrity Couples We Wish Were Still Together [PHOTOS]

By on
  • Vanessa Hudgens
    This was a match made in tween heaven, as these two starred in the über-popular “High School Musical” films. They started dating during their “HSM” days and broke up in 2010. Efron has since been spotted with Lily Collins, while Hudgens was briefly linked to “Hunger Games” star Josh Hutcherson. She is now reported to be dating actor Austin Butler. The two were recently photographed kissing in Barcelona. But they are nowhere near as picture perfect as she and Efron were. Sigh. REUTERS
  • Alanis Morissette and Ryan Reynolds
    Remember when these two Canadians were an item? Actor Ryan Reynolds and rock goddess Alanis Morissette started dating in 2002 and were engaged for three years before calling it quits in 2007. Morissette is now married to rapper Mario Treadway and they have a kid. Reynolds is ensconced with girlfriend and “Gossip Girl” actress Blake Lively. Before that, he was married to Scarlett Johansson. We liked the down-to-earth-looking couple. Reuters
  • Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams
    “The Notebook” stars were on and off from 2004 to 2008 – long before Gosling had been lionized as not only the (unofficially) sexiest man alive, but the number one guy to have around in the event of an impromptu street fight or a speeding taxi. Now she’s reported to be snuggly with actor Michael Sheen and he’s been seen about town with actress Eva Mendes. No offense to the dashing Sheen and the sultry Mendes, but McAdams and Gosling just looked so darn perfect together! Reuters
  • Drew Barrymore and Justin Long
    Was there ever a sweeter-looking couple? Barrymore and Long, who costarred in “Going the Distance” and “He’s Just Not That Into You,” were on and off from 2007 to 2010. Barrymore just married art dealer Will Kopelman and they are expecting their first child. We’re not sure who Long is dating at the moment, but we kind of liked seeing these two together. Reuters
  • Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt
    Need we say more? Reuters

Celebrity relationships are usually doomed from the start, it seems. With all those movies and television shows to film - and all those opportunities to misbehave - it must be rough to keep a steady schedule, much less a steady relationship.

Here are some celebrity couples who we wish were still together. Many of them today are in relationships (happy ones, we hope) with other people, and we wish their new partners no disrespect. Still, we can't help but take a look down memory lane and wonder what might have been.
