The Best Celebrity Couples of 2011

It's easy to remember the horrible celebrity breakups in 2011 (hello, Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries), the disgusting couples that shouldn't be (Courtney Stodden and Doug Hutchinson), and the couples that you wish would get back together (we're still naively holding onto hope for Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams.). But despite Hollywood , what about the celebrity couples who bloomed and blossomed in 2011 and are still going strong? We believe it's time to pay them some tribute and keep our fingers crossed that as 2012 approaches, they'll still be standing under the mistletoe.

Anne Hathaway and Adam Shulman

It feels as though this soon-to-be-married couple came out of nowhere, but hey, it works. After being duped by Italian "entrepreneur," Raffaello Follieri, who pled guilty for swindling investors out of millions, we're happy that Anne Hathaway found a seemingly normal guy-and he's a sexy actor-turned-jewelry-designer who helped design the engagement ring he gave to Hathaway.

Five Celeb Stories We Hope Don't Make It to 2012

Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber

We know, we know-they're only teenagers, but you have to admit that the Biebs and Selena make quite the pair. We've got to give them credit for withstanding a pregnancy/cheating rumor, as well, which is more we can say for many adult celebrities.

Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem

These two have been together since 2010 and just brought baby Leo into their lives in 2011. It's hard not to root for a couple this gorgeous.

Gifts We'd Give Our Fave Tabloid Train Wrecks

Prince William and Kate Middleton

He's a prince; she's a "commoner"-in a rich, socialite sort of way-what's not to love about this royal couple?! Their wedding extravaganza gave us a new-found appreciation for crazy hats and turned everything from tea cups to condoms into royal-wedding souvenirs.


Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes
Yes, it's true: we'd really love to see Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams back together and I'm certain that every Notebook fan would like to see the same. But, we do have to admit that Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes make a pretty adorable pair. The Hitch co-star didn't need any help to pick up this "Hey Girl" hottie.

Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds
Legs-for-days Blake Lively has had quite the romantic 2011. DiCaprio, Penn Badley and now Ryan Reynolds?! Do her lips taste of some magical booze we have yet to hear of? Regardless, we're happy that Ryan and pouty-lipped Blake have that nauseatingly "we're so in love all we do is lounge around the house and walk the dog" thing going on.
