With rumours still circulating around the future of Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez’ relationship, we couldn’t help but get nostalgic for some of our favourite Hollywood couples of times gone by. While we wait for more news on the alleged reconcilliation of Selena and Justin, here are five other former celebrity couples we wish would get back together.
Ryan Gosling & Rachel McAdams
We were never so proud to be Canadian as when Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams were the poster couple for Canadian hotness. Now who can we rely on, Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger? Say it ain’t so! We’d do anything to have McGosling back. Not only did the duo star in one of the most romantic movies of all time together — The Notebook — they were also born in the same hospital in London, Ontario.
Blake Lively & Penn Badgley
Blake Lively may have just married Canadian hottie Ryan Reynolds, but we always thought her best match was her Gossip Girl costar Penn Badgley. The low-key couple met on set in 2007 and dated into the fall of 2009 before calling it quits. Blake went on to date Leonardo DiCaprio who is known for his love of tall blondes before she met her Green Lantern costar Ryan Reynolds. Penn, on the other hand, has been tied to Lenny Kravitz daughter Zoe Kravitz for quite some time. Blake and Penn have still managed to maintain a friendship despite no longer being a couple.

Vanessa Hudgens & Zac Efron
Former High School Musical couple Vanessa Hudgens and Zac Efron were like the Disney-fied version of K-Stew and R-Patz. Vanessa and Zac rose to fame together, just like Kristen and Rob, and it seemed like the couple were destined to walk down the aisle. Unfortunately, the couple called it quits after years of dating. So much for the Hollywood version of high school sweethearts.
Rachel Bilson & Adam Brody
Before we had Zac and Vanessa, we had Rachel Bilson and Adam Brody. The adorable duo met on set of The OC in 2003 and stayed together until 2006. We loved how fashion-forward Rachel and hipster chic Adam looked together. Rachel may have moved on to Hayden Christensen, not to mention a new show, Hart of Dixie, but we’re still keeping the faith that they’ll reconnect one day.
Johnny Depp & Winona Ryder
The first thing we thought when Johnny Depp announced his split from Vanessa Paradis this year was: Maybe he’ll get back together with Winona Ryder! Johnny and Winona we’re definitely the “it” couple of the early ’90s, dating from 1989-93. Johnny even had “Winona Forever” tattoo inked on his body at the time.
