1. Jennifer Aniston
Just Go with It: The only time anyone would ever kind of believe that Jennifer would marry Adam Sandler.
Ba dah bump!
2. George Glass
Poor Jan. So desperate. So underwhelming. Especially when compared to Marcia.
3. George Glass
Not to be confused with Jan Brady’s fake beau, George Glass, Kristin Wiig uses the same name when she needs to make Jon Hamm jealous. Not that we blame her.
4. Male for hire
In The Wedding Date, Debra Messing gets herself a male escort to serve as a date to her sister’s wedding. It’s not a terrible idea, actually.
5. Weird Science
As the tagline of the movie says, “It’s all in the name of science.” Hot, midriff-baring science.
6. Sofia Reyes’s fiance
During the first season of Ugly Betty, Sofia Reyes, (Read: Salma Hayek), pretended to have a fake man in her life.
Why? All for the sake of journalism! She wanted to trap Daniel into marrying her so that she’d have a cover story for the release of her magazine. “From Fling to Ring in 80 Days” was the title, and it was damn entertaining to watch.
7. Jimmy’s fake girlfriend
We all have someone we’d like to make jealous, right? Same with Jimmy in Raising Hope, who pretended to have a relationship in order to make Sabrina jealous.
Yes, even Ryan Gosling needs to pretend to have a lady to love sometimes. That’s where Bianca, the doll/girlfriend in Lars and the Real Girl, gets shipped in. Hey, whatever works!
