GossipCenter's 12 Hottest Couples of 2012
Wedding bells rung, babies were born and tears were shed in Hollywood's love department over the past year and GossipCenter took a look back at the best moments from celebrity couples in 2012.
Whether it's the infamous cheating scandal that initially broke up Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson or the royal baby announcement from Kate Middleton and Prince William, we've compiled the top moments from this exciting year in Tinseltown.
Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart:
The past year has held plenty of drama for Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, as they had one of the highest-profile breakups after Stewart was caught on camera cheating with her “Snow White and the Huntsman” director Rupert Sanders. After much groveling Kristen managed to get Rob to forgive her, and they’re currently back on. Robsten had plenty of publicity during the promotional duties for their latest flick “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2” as well.
Kate Middleton and Prince William:
Celebrating the biggest news since their fairytale wedding in April 2011, Prince William and Kate Middleton have shared they’re expecting a child. The announcement was forced by the Duchess of Cambridge’s hospitalization due to acute morning sickness. However, the Duchess of Cambridge was treated and released. She’s currently carrying a Royal bun in the oven!
They both have booming careers and hectic schedules on their hands but somehow Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez found their way into each other’s hearts. And as with any young love, things haven’t been exactly stable for these two. However, the on-again-off-again rollercoaster seems to be back on, at least for now.
Following the demise of her marriage to Russell Brand, Katy Perry dipped her toe into the dating pool. The “Hot N Cold” songstress ended up with a few potential suitors, however, lothario John Mayer eventually rose to the top. They’ve been on and off several times, but it looks like Katy and John will ring in 2013 together.
They’ve both experienced new levels of career success in 2012, and now Taylor Swift has selected her latest boyfriend/songwriting muse- One Direction’s Harry Styles. They’ve been the talk of the gossip realm in recent months, and T. Swifty has even been accused of acting as a “Yoko Ono” for snagging Styles away from his British bandmates.
Their film “The Green Lantern” may have been a colossal flop, but at least Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively got a spouse out of the deal. Reynolds got divorced from Scarlett Johansson in 2011, but tied the knot again on September 9th, 2012 with his “Gossip Girl” bride just outside of Charleston, South Carolina.
After facing some serious public criticism for her 72-day marriage to Kris Humphries last year, Kim Kardashian swore off dating—that is until longtime family friend Kanye West came calling. The Tinseltown twosome has been spotted at fashion shows, high-end shindigs, and just chilling out all over the globe. Kim even gave Kanye a Lamborghini for his birthday!
She certainly can’t be tamed, but Miley Cyrus is looking to settle down with “Hunger Games” hunk Liam Hemsworth. The two announced their engagement back in June, and since then the “Party in the USA” had a racy 20th birthday shindig, chopped off her hair and bleached it blonde, and scored an inflatable sex doll as a Christmas present. One has to wonder what her bachelorette party will look like!
He broke wife Demi Moore’s heart by cheating with party girl Sara Leal, and Ashton Kutcher moved on from his marriage by linking up with his former “That 70s Show” costar Mila Kunis (who devastated Macaulay Culkin when she left him). So far things look great for the uber-attractive couple, and Ashton finally filed divorce papers so perhaps he’s thinking of tying the knot with his “Black Swan” babe.
She’s notoriously unlucky in love, but 2012 saw Jennifer Aniston find true romance with her handsome beau Justin Theroux. And even though she swore off marriage after splitting from Brad Pitt, the “Horrible Bosses” babe accepted a proposal from her “Wanderlust” suitor and is in the process of planning their wedding. Perhaps Jen has finally found her soulmate!
Easily one of the most controversial couples in showbiz, Chris Brown and Rihanna have weathered the storms of domestic abuse, emotional warfare, and pretty much every other pressure imaginable, and they’ve come out of it all still in love. Right or wrong, the “Umbrella” babe can’t seem to get enough of her tattooed, loud-mouthed lover and it seems that they’re in it for the long haul.
While some famous couples seem to rush into marriage way too quickly, Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel’s romance has been more of a slow burn. And after years of dating and getting to know each other, the “Like I Love You” hunk said “I Do” with his “7th Heaven” hottie during a gorgeous wedding ceremony in Southern Italy. Things seem to be going swimmingly for these newlyweds, and now everyone is waiting to see when Justin and Jessica decide to have some kiddos!
Bonus Baker’s Dozen Entry- Drew Barrymore & Will Kopelman:
Having two failed marriages hasn’t hampered Drew Barrymore’s interest in tying the knot again, and earlier this year the “E.T.” actress got hitched to art consultant Will Kopelman (they announced their engagement in January and exchanged vows in June). Additionally, Drew gave birth to their first child Olive in September. Talk about a year of transition!
