Sometimes Cupid has a sick sense of humor. Or maybe he’s just bored. Judging from the random celebrity hookups and romances, it is hard to tell the difference. Our friends at Snakkle.com look back at the most random celeb couples ever.
Tom Cruise and Cher, 1985
In 2008, Cher admitted to both Oprah and David Letterman that she and Tom Cruise dated sometime after “Risky Business” (1983) but before “The Color of Money” (1986). And though they seem like a random fit, apparently Tom Cruise isn’t the only Scientologist romantically linked with Cher. Her former husband Sonny Bono was also a Scientologist.
Carson Daly and Jennifer Love Hewitt, 1998
These two dated for two years in the late 1990s and then she broke up with him in an embarrassing way. Shannen Doherty inadvertently announced their split on a talk show… before Jennifer had actually broken up with Carson. Daly took it hard, which is understandable—who wants to be dumped in front of the world? Thankfully, both have moved on.
John Mellencamp and Meg Ryan
Meg Ryan and John Mellencamp announced they were dating in January 2011, just shortly after Mellencamp split from his longtime wife, creating a swirl of controversy and allegations of infidelity. Maybe that is because they were spotted in New York City together the previous fall. Regardless, these two are currently going strong and seem happy. The odd couple took in an Indiana University home game together on Jan. 10, 2013.
