These two did a very good job of hiding their relationship. So much so, that by the time the tabloids realized they were an item, they had already broken up. Apparently, Bullock and McConaughey were together for almost two years and even got engaged secretly!
They met in 1996 and immediately felt the sparks while filming on the same set. For their own reasoning (they kept this a secret, too), they decided to go on their separate ways; however, they have remained close until today. They are very close friends and make it a point to share it with the world.
George Clooney and Kelly Preston
We bet you never knew that Mr. Nespresso, George Clooney, had a guest appearance on the 1980s show "The Facts of Life." Well, he did, and at the same time (and we didn't know this until researching for this article), he dated Kelly Preston before she went off and married John Travolta.
They dated in 1988, which lasted for only a year, but during that year, they moved in together and even raised a pet pig named Max! After the breakup, Clooney kept the pig and raised it until died at the old age of 18. Who knew he had it in him?
Julia Roberts and Matthew Perry
A pretty woman and one of the funniest guys in the house kicked it off, apparently in 1995. Julia Roberts, known for her remarkable performance in many widescreen movies, was a guest star on "Friends," Mattew Perry's home set. Ironically, Roberts played the role of someone who gets payback on Perry's Chandler for bullying her in school.
The two enjoyed each other's company for almost a year before deciding to end the romance. It is thought that this was the turning point for Mattew Perry, as his drinking problem is said to have begun slightly after the breakup, but this is all hearsay.
Arsenio Hall and Paula Abdul
"American Idol" judge Paula Abdul dated Arsenio Hall, who had his very own show. The two met on the set of a movie and lived hectic lives in the entertainment industry. They met while filming "Coming to America," which was a classic Eddie Murphy comedy, and became inseparable.
Even though they broke up, Arsenio mentions that he has only good memories of Paula. They stayed friends, and she even appeared on his show after they broke up. Abdul has since married twice (actor Emilio Estevez and fashion designer Brad Beckerman) but Hall has never married, though he does have one son.
Janice Dickinson and Rob Lowe
Like everyone in the 1980s', all men wanted to be Rob Lowe, and all women wanted to date Rob Lowe. And Janice Dickinson is one woman who actually did that. 1988 was the year it all happened, though it only lasted a few months.
She was a stunning supermodel who escalated her career and later became one of the judges on "America's Next Top Models," in addition to being a successful businesswoman and author. Rob Lowe, on the other hand, is a loved actor, producer, and director, but the 1980s will always be remembered as his peak and pride decade.
