With the normalcy of how quickly celebrities get together and break up with significant others, it can be easy to forget a couple of relationships along the way. As the years have passed and celebs have moved on from relationship to relationship, there are some that have stood out, and others that have seemingly been repressed by our entire society. Here are 13 celebrity couples you forgot about, or maybe just tried to forget about.
1. Jared Leto and Cameron Diaz
Can you really blame anyone for forgetting this relationship? Although these two were together for a total of four years from 1999 to 2003, Leto has had his fair share of relationships, making it easy for Diaz to get lost in the mix. If there’s one thing everyone can agree on about this relationship, it’s that they sure were an attractive pair.
2. Kim Kardashian and Nick Cannon
Please tell me I wasn’t the only one completely shocked by this one. We all remember Kris Humphries and their 72 day marriage, but this one completely escaped our memory. The pair dated for a little under six months from 2006 to 2007, and Cannon went on to marry now ex-wife Mariah Carey the following year. Check out these celebrity couples you forgot about.
3. Sarah Jessica Parker and Robert Downey Jr.
Although this photogenic couple remains a favorite #couplegoals on Tumblr, this relationship is still forgotten by many despite Downey’s second wave of fame with Marvel. Parker and Downey were together from 1984 to 1991, and it has been alluded to by both that his drinking and drug problems were the source of the downfall in their relationship. Through this all, there is definitely no bad blood between the two as they pleasantly reunited and expressed happiness for one another back in 2015.
4. Ryan Gosling and Sandra Bullock
Gosling and Bullock began dating for a short period of time from 2001 to 2002 after co-starring in Murder By Numbers together. With a 16 year age gap between the two, Bullock being 36 and Gosling being 20 at the start of the relationship, it’s not extremely difficult to see why the pair did not work out.

5. Mila Kunis and Macaulay Culkin
Home Alone star Macaulay Culkin and Bad Moms Mila Kunis star were together from 2002 to 2011. We may have consciously tried to forget this relationship as Kunis is now with fellow That 70s Show star, Ashton Kutcher, happily married with two children and adored by many.
6. Amanda Bynes and Seth MacFarlane
It’s often been said that opposites attract, but this one is still a little hard to believe. Amanda Bynes and creator of Family Guy Seth MacFarlane were together for a short fling in 2008. Check out these celebrity couples you forgot about.
7. Kate Moss and Johnny Depp
When we think of Johnny Depp’s exes, Winona Ryder, or his ex wife Vanessa Paradis, usually come to mind. These two often overshadow one of his longtime relationships, the four years he spent with supermodel Kate Moss. The two shared a passionate relationship, filled with PDA and public fight and always looked ready for the runway together.
8. Harry Styles and Kendall Jenner
Even as a hardcore Harry fan, even I forget about these two sometimes. Harry and Kendall have been seen periodically since 2013, never having a consistent relationship but seen acting couple-y on multiple occasions. The last time they were spotted together was in 2016.
9. Kylie Jenner and Jaden Smith
Speaking of the Jenners, we have to include this couple. Jaden Smith and Kylie Jenner were together in 2013 when Smith was 14 and Jenner was 15. Could you imagine the two together in 2018 with Kylie as a new mom?
10. Jennifer Aniston and John Mayer
Jennifer and John were together from 2008 to 2009 in a relatively short-lived relationship. There are rumors that bad blood remains between the two, with several reports that Aniston just cannot stand Mayer even now.
11. Michael Keaton and Courteney Cox
Jennifer’s Friends co-star Courteney Cox began a relationship with Michael Keaton in 1989 and ended things between them in 1996. After the split, Cox fondly looked back and stated “I think [Michael] is the most wonderful person I’ve met”.
12. Emily Blunt and Michael Bublé
With everyone absolutely in love with Emily and her hubby John Krasinski, it’s easy to forget about her past lovelife. Emily Blunt and singer Michael Bublé were together from 2005 to 2008, splitting for a number of reasons that either of the two are never really in the mood to discuss.
13. Katy Perry and Travie McCoy
Gym Class Heroes member Travie McCoy and popstar Katy Perry were in a relationship from 2007 to 2009. This one may have been forgotten as McCoy has been out of the spotlight for a while now and all eyes are on Katy and her latest love Orlando Bloom.
