Some call it love, some call it magic, and some just call it being one of the most famous couples in the industry (back then). Famous magician and illusionist David Copperfield managed to woo supermodel Claudia Schiffer by asking her for assistance during one of his shows in 1993. A year later, the two were engaged! However, the engagement would never bloom into a marriage. The pair split up in 1999.
What’s particularly peculiar about the pairing is the controversy that surrounded it. Many have speculated that the relationship was a long ruse in order to boost Copperfield’s fame. However, both Schiffer and Copperfield strongly deny this. Hmm…
Julia Roberts and Kiefer Sutherland
Both of these two had plenty of their own fame, though when this picture was taken, Julia Roberts's stardom was already in full swing. Kiefer Sutherland would need a little bit of time before “24” took off and took him with it. Still, here they are spotted together, playing a happy celebrity couple.
One thing we can't get over is the fact that Sutherland took the "whenever attending a party – bring something with you" rule a little too far. We can't ignore the six-pack of beer or a four-pack of fancy wine bottles he is holding in his hand.
Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos
Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos met in 1996 on the daytime soap opera "All My Children" as co-stars and love interests. (Not much acting necessary!) These two seem to have found the secret to being a successful couple in show business as their careers have not gotten in the way of their marriage of almost three decades.
As a family of five, the TV star couple has three children together and maintains a photogenic relationship. “We care about each other deeply,” said Kelly, “Relationships evolve, and we just happened to be lucky enough that we evolved together.” Mark agrees, “We really dig each other. I’m crazy about her,” he said, “We keep it going.”
Nickelodeon star Larisa Oleynik captured kids’ imaginations as a girl named Alex with superpowers on "The Secret World of Alex Mack." As a teen idol, she made American youngsters all over the world wonder how awesome it would be to be a famous TV star.
After graduating from high school, she went back to acting and landed roles in the cult classic "10 Things I Hate About You" and the hit show "3rd Rock from the Sun." But she wasn’t done with school. Oleynik finished off her education at Sarah Lawrence College in Yonkers, New York. She said it was the best decision she ever made.
Jennifer Love Hewitt and Will Friedle
When Love Hewitt and Friedle were just 18 years old, they played best friends on the set of the movie "Trojan War" and kicked off a true love relationship from there on. Later on, Hewit would play one of Friedle's love interests in "Boy Meets World." The relationship between the two on set was far more interesting than what was going on in reality, and the couple split up not long after they became publicly known as an item.
Both Love Hewitt and Friedle were big names during the 1990s and were the future to make it big in the industry. "Boy Meets World" is what brought fame to Friedle, and "Pary of Five" is where Love Hewit became known to almost every household in the world.
