12 Celebrity Couples Whose Breakups Would Totally Destroy Us

When we got the news yesterday that Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson had taken some time apart, we here in the Crushable office were surprised by how upset we were about it. Yeah, we’ve never met Tom and Rita, but they’re one of those couples that makes you believe in love, y’know? I guess we were more invested in them than we thought.

We’ve talked before about couples that we wouldn’t mind breaking up and couples who totally devastated us when they split, but we’ve never before tempted fate by discussing celebrity couples whose breakups would totally destroy us. You know, if they were to break up.

QUICKLY SOMEONE KNOCK ON WOOD. It’s our only chance to keep love alive!

Tom and Rita have been together twenty-six years, and are commonly cited as the rare Hollywood success story. They’re loving and supportive, and goddamnit they just seem like nice people.

2. Ellen Degeneres & Portia De Rossi

There’s been gossip for years now that Portia and Ellen are on the rocks, but I uncharacteristically refuse to believe them. I don’t know if it’s just because people aren’t used to seeing a powerful lesbian couple succeed or because there’s actual truth to the rumors that they’re in trouble, but I’m really hoping it’s the former. I don’t think any of us could handle the latter.

3. John Krasinski & Emily Blunt

Ugh. How many languages can you say ‘adorable’ in? Because we’re gonna need them all to explain this couple. Not only are both halves of this pairing attractive, smart, and savvy, but they’re also effing hilarious. I never would have matched them up in my head, but now that they’re married, I can’t imagine life without them. Oh and their little baby Hazel is the cutest thing ever!

4. Barack & Michelle Obama

Guys, come on! Get on board with me on this one! I feel like we’ve never had a couple in the White House before with such great chemistry and personality evident. I feel like President Obama’s relationship with the First Lady humanizes him in a way I’d have a real problem letting go of.

5. Megan Mullaly & Nick Offerman

Oh my god, these two are obsessed with each other and I never want it to stop. Never before has a couple been able to speak about their love life in such ribald terms and have it not bother me an ounce. Public displays of affection usually strike me as corny and unnecessary, but Megan and Nick are so obviously in love with each other that they could hump on live television and I wouldn’t bat an eye. (Actually, I’m pretty sure that already happened on Parks and Rec, it just wasn’t live.)

6. Pink & Cary Hart

I know that P!nk and Cary have seen their share of troubles, but the way they’ve been so honest and open about it is really inspiring to me. Every relationship goes through rocky patches, but I feel like these two are both so self-aware that they can really get through anything and come out stronger for it. And it doesn’t hurt that their off-times create such great music!

7. Kristen Bell & Dax Shepard

BRB, still need a quick second to decide if I’d rather this couple adopt me or accept me into the fold as their sister wife. Kristen and Dax just seem to have so much respect and love for each other as a couple, while also having a great effing time together as friends. It’s honestly all I want in a relationship. FROM MY LIPS TO GOD’S EARS.

8. Jay Z & Beyonce

See this one is tricky, because even though we all know we should be prepping for it, no one really has been. For as much as I’ve been told over and over again that this marriage was always just a business arrangement, I can’t bear to find out that the look in Bey’s eyes when she gazes at Jay has been nothing but a lie. Lalalalalala I can’t hear you!

9. Emma Stone & Andrew Garfield

Meep! These two are the kind of couple that I’d want to hang out with and do a game night. I feel like they’d be just as comfortable ordering Chinese and scrolling through Netflix as they would be strolling the red carpet. They’re the kind of couple that transitions easily from day to night, like a classic clutch. CLUTCH COUPLE.

10. Kurt Russell & Goldie Hawn

An oldie but a goodie! These two have been together since 1983, which is an impressive run by any standards, but particularly in Hollywood. PLUS, they never got married, which I think is a really fun middle finger to convention that I particularly admire. Basically what I’m saying is they’re proof that you don’t have to do what society expects of you, and you can still go through life with your best friend on your arm. What could be better than that?

11. Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie

They may not have started their relationship in the most traditional of ways, but Brangelina’s commitment to each other as people is pretty awe-inspiring. It feels like they were both in good or even great relationships before, but as soon as they met each other, something clicked and they realized they’d been selling themselves short all their life. Aka I’d be super sad if they ever broke up. As would their six children, come to think of it, but I’m pretty sure my feelings matter more.

12. One Direction

I know they’re not technically a couple but DON’T YOU DARE DO IT BOYS, DON’T YOU EVER! We’re all counting on you!

      AGREED SO HARD. Except for some reason, I don’t care about Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone. I like her tremendously and sometimes I like him, too, but together they never give me “daw” feelings.

    • itpainsme2say

      I’m sorry but I’m gonna need you to add Helena and Tim, also if we are doing non couples i would like to suggest Sir Patrick Stewart and Sir Ian Mckellen’s friendship

    • Namakiki

      Chris Pratt & Anna Farris and also NPH & David!

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        Ughhhh good call for Chris Pratt and Anna Faris! Can’t believe I missed them! But it’s probably because they stay under the radar, which is honestly my favorite part about them.

      • https://soundcloud.com/kirsten-ascio Kirsten

        Olivia Wilde & Jason Sudeikis!

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        Ooh that’s a good one too…although they rub their sex life in our faces a bit too much for my particular tastes.

    • Court

      I’d be such a mess if Freddie Prinze, Jr. & Sarah Michelle Gellar split.

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        Eeep is it bad that I’m not that into them?

      • Court

        They aren’t very public, so not many people seem to even have an opinion; as long as you don’t actually want them to divorce or anything, we have no problem :) :P. I think they’re awesome. I loved the live action Scooby Doo movies (even though I was probably too old to be loving them when they came out) and I Know What You Did Last Summer was one of the first ‘horror’ movies I ever saw. That, and I loved Buffy and the string of teen movies Freddie did in the ’90s. *’90s kid if you couldn’t tell*. So, naturally I love them.. &they were more big, public, and cutesy with eachother back then. They’ve been married 12 years now, they have two adorable kids, Charlotte and Rocky, so they’re just my fav hollywood ‘successful’ couple :’), lol.

      Meh on Beyonce/Jay Z. I’m not a fan of either of their music so I don’t have a dog in that fight. I want Kristin Bell to adopt me.

    • jennok

      David Bowie and Iman. I’m pretty sure I would cry.

    • Alexandra Mitchell

      I agree with all but the last two. I’m still pretty bitter/in Jenn’s camp/when the hell are she and Justin getting married….

      But anyway, great list. But also me and Benedict Cumberbatch. But that has to happen first.

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        Hahaha, note taken.

    • Lola

      What about Channing Tatum & Jenna Dewan-Tatum? They are soooo cute and literally the perfect couple! And their baby is adorable too!

    • Stacy

      Oh man I can think of other good candidates: Jennifer Garner & Ben Affleck, Lauren Graham & Peter Krause, and Adam Brody & Leighton Meester (GG meets The OC),

    • aCongaLine

      No joke, I mentally listed #1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 10, and 11 before reading this list. Soo, I agree. :)
