Not every celebrity relationship out there can reach Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard-like levels of love, commitment and all around cuteness.
Inspired by the questions that hounded Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston throughout their rumored romance we’ve compiled a list of famous couples who may have just been smiling for camera…
… or who may have just been putting on a pretend happy face.
1. Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes
The classic example. Most people believe Holmes was selected by Scientology higher-ups who have always controlled Cruise’s love life. The way these two have acted since their split only serves to highlight this rumor.
2. Vanessa Hudgens and Zac Efron
Hmmm… was it a coincidence that the romance between these High School Musical stars lasted basically as long as that Disney movie franchise?
3. Ryan Seacrest and Julianne Hough
Seacrest started dating Hough soon after rumors sprang up that questioned his heterosexuality. After they split, Ryan allegedly bought his ex a $3 million mansion… as a thank you?
4. Taylor Swift and Harry Styles
Some folks believe Swift jumped in while the One Direction iron as hot with Styles, pretending she was dating the rising boy band singer before he truly made it big. Those stage photo ops only served to fuel this rumor.
5. John Travola and Kelly Preston
These two have been married for years and have kids together. But gay rumors continue to follow Travolta around, making many think Preston has simply agreed to be his “beard.”
6. Shailene Woodley and Theo James
They never came out as a couple. But did they pretend to flirt, pretend to have some kind of romantic interest, in order to drive up ticket sales for the Divergent franchse?
