John Cusack and Lili Taylor starred together on “Say Anything.” As it turns out, Taylor wasn’t satisfied with only dating Cusack, as it was reported that she had a bit on the side with D.V. DeVincentis, one of Cusack’s best friends at the time. Though they probably didn’t stay friends after that.
In 2000 Taylor and Cusack starred together again, this time in the movie “High Fidelity.” How ironic, considering how their previous relationship ended. The affair between the two never skyrocket, and maybe that’s a good thing when you think about the uncomfortable events that made them go their separate ways in the first place.
Joey Lawrence and Keri Russell
Way before he became one of our most hated yet loved characters on "Felicity," Joey Lawrence was busy galavanting with Keri Russell down the streets of Hollywood. Their short relationship lasted for just under six months and had its share of drama.
As it turns out, while Russell was involved with Lawrence, she was still in an on-and-off relationship with the ex-boyfriend Tony Lucca of "The Mickey Mouse Club." The two have since tried their hand in marriage (to other people, of course), in divorce, and in parenting. Lawrence is currently married and Russell is in a relationship with another co-star, Matthew Rhys.
Fred Savage and Jennifer Love Hewitt
Fred Savage gained immense popularity in the late '80s and early '90s for his role as the lead in "The Wonder Years." At the same time, Hewitt was 14 and making a name for herself on Disney's "Kids Incorporated." The two young stars eventually crossed paths.
In an Instagram Live interview with TooFab, Hewitt reminisced about crushing on Savage. She revealed that for their first date, Savage took her to the Laugh Factory for a comedy show. Unfortunately, their love story was short-lived because of Hewitt's unusual pet: a pig. She said she never saw him again because he was really creeped out.
Liam Neeson and Helen Mirren
This might come as a shock to you, but during the 1980s, the queen of the Oscars dated the king of the screen for almost five long years. Neeson and Mirren met playing the roles of Gawain and Morgana on the set of "Excalibur" when they were still both unknown.
They lived together, loved one another deeply, and admitted that, at the time, they were considered a serious item. Mirren confessed that the two broke up because Liam had difficulty being under Helen's shadow. If only he would have realized that such a great actor could never be under anyone's shadow.
Justin Timberlake and Fergie
Before NSYNC became NSYNC, the pop girl group Wild Orchid was a big thing, and Justin Timberlake and Fergie had it going. They were both in the entertainment industry from a young age, which is probably what drew them to one another. Timberlake was just 16 years old, and Fergie was seven years his senior. Age was never a barrier until Britney came along.
They have since both had high-profile relationships. Fergie married actor Josh Duhamel, had a son with him, and then the two got divorced. Timberlake is currently married to actress Jessica Biel, and they now share two kids.
