12 Celebrity Couples That We Really Want To Happen

Happy Valentine’s Day, everybody! I wish you much gladness today, whether it’s with your significant other, a first date, or a bottle of wine on your couch. I don’t turn up my nose at any celebration on this day of hearts and love and naked cupid butts.

In fact, I think everyone’s a little too closed-minded about what constitutes a good V-Day. Today is a day to let your inhibitions go and do whatever feels good. Don’t second guess yourself, y’know? I’m mostly talking to you, celebrities, because I can’t help but notice you haven’t been following my dating advice recently. You have these wonderful best friends right under your noses, and yet you insist on staying platonic with them and getting romantic with other people that I don’t care about.

But once a year on February 14th, I get to tell celebrities what to do (this is a rule I’ve recently made up), so I’m not letting today go to waste. Here are 12 Celebrity Couples That We All Really Want To Happen. Do us a solid and just give it a shot, guys. Please?

1. Josh Hutcherson and Jennifer Lawrence

I mean have you watched the Hunger Games press tours? Don’t even try to fight me on this. They already have such great friend chemistry, and Josh has admitted that he got little tinglings when Jenn kissed him in the movie…so maybe they could just try it out? Once? Please?

2. Sandra Bullock and George Clooney

They’ve been friends for twenty years, but never dated or even had any interest in dating, which is actually the best possible reason to try things out now. George needs to date someone just as famous as him who isn’t gonna fall over herself trying to please him, and Sandra could definitely use a distinguished gent who respects her and already has the affection of her son, Louis. IT JUST WORKS.

3. Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson

Fans want these One Direction bandmates to get together so badly that they’ve even come up with a name for them – Larry Stylinson. I mean maybe just think about it? It would definitely make Harry less likely to leave the band and pursue a solo career!

4. Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling

UGH. Their chemistry in movies like Crazy Stupid Love and Gangster Squad is so good that I forget they’re not already together. And this isn’t even anything against Andrew Garfield or Eva Mendes. It just happens to be my favorite daydream and I really want it to come true.

5. Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman

I’ve seen enough of the chemistry between Holmes and Watson on Sherlock to know that these two would work. but even if it can’t play out on the show for plot reasons OR WHATEVER, please give us a tiny taste in real life? Fan fiction everywhere would thank you.

6. Zooey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon Levitt

These two met in 2000 and have been friends ever since, even filming (500) Days Of Summer together as the romantic leads, but never dated. Guys come on! Think of all the webcam musical collaborations you could film if you lived together in the same house as husband and wife forever and ever!

7. Amy Poehler and Adam Scott

A coworker of mine ships Adam and Lizzy which is fine too, but I felt like the Parks And Rec reference is a little more topical than Party Downno matter how wonderful they both are. I get that Adam is married, and I’m not hating on that, it’s just that Leslie and Ben are the only married couple on television who haven’t actively made me want to jump in a well.

8. Taylor Swift and Ed Sheeran

After all her (extremely well-documented) guy trouble, maybe Taylor should try things out with a friend instead of a…known womanizer. Right? After all, Ed defends her in the media when pretty much no one else will, so give it a shot, guys!

9. Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon

In the immortal words of my coworker Meg, “Oh, they wish.” Just don’t tell Jessica Biel.

10. Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet

Just their film history is enough for me, from Titanic to Revolutionary Roadbut then Kate had to go and blow that kiss to Leo from the stage of the 2009 Golden Globes? That’s it. Done. Can’t handle it. Just get together already.

11. Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus

Listen, I get that she’s definitely too good for him at this point, but for a while there, these two were equally out-of-control, and Miley might be the only one who can bring Justin back from Crazytown. Someone has to try, and Selena Gomez obviously isn’t up to it. I feel like Miley could twerk him into shape in no time.

12. Jason Bateman and Will Arnett

UGH I just want to hang out with them all the time. Wander the streets of Manhattan hand in hand, rewatch Arrested Development together, call each other ‘guy’, LAUGH. The opportunities are really endless, and I for sure want in.

    I can’t get over the fact that “My Heart Will Go On” is playing in that Kate Winslet speech video. It is a true Valentine’s Day gift.

    • Alexis Rhiannon

      It’s her forever song.

  • Ash

    Your list is definitely better than the wishful list Yahoo! posted yesterday. Their first pairing was Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston… all I could hear was the voices in my head screaming, ” NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!”

    • Alexis Rhiannon

      Ew no. Never. Make it stop.

    • Alyssa

      Sounds like Yahoo has a death wish…

  • Lindsey Conklin

    YES to all of these. especially jennifer lawrence and josh hutcherson

  • Tara

    haha, the reason you prefer Ryan & Emma is b/c you haven’t watched The Amazing Spider-man ! Have you gotten around to watching it yet? (still can’t believe you haven’t seen it) Andrew & Emma have some serious chemistry, you can feel the pheromones jumping out at you from the screen I think it’s better than what you see in Crazy Stupid Love :)

    • Danica

      I watched The Amazing Spider-Man. I think Emma and Andrew are the cuttest thing together, but… she and Gosling also have this amazing hot-couple raw-sexual-chemistry that is undeniable.

  • Danica

    I totally feel the same way about Josh and Jen. It’s like, wtf, why are they not together yet?

  • J_Doe5686

    Yes, a million times yes to #1!

  • LyndsayWaugh

    They are enjoying to moment by the Couple .

    I loved these. I think all the men that work with Jennifer Lawrence have crushes on her. Look at their faces when they look at her talking. Especially Bradley Cooper.

  • Guest

    Also Mindy Kaling and B.J Novak.

  • Romylove

    Zooey was married to (and then divorced from) Ben Gibbard of Death Cab for Cutie/The Postal Service fame.

  • elle

    Adam Scott and Lizzie Caplan forever. I don’t care that Adams married and lizzie is in a serious relationship with Chandler Bing (why can’t I think of his name right now?), it needs to happen.

  • alice_in_blunderland82

    JF & JT 4Ever lol

    • Alexis Rhiannon

      I would love it.
