12 Power Couples You Want To Be In A Relationship With

Famous couples you want to be the middle spoon to, in chronological order.

1. Paris and Helen of Troy

Um, who cares is they’re mythological? She was the most beautiful woman in the world, and he was the man who convinced her to leave her unhappy marriage (read: probably a hottie). Wouldn’t hurt if they really looked like Orlando Bloom and Diane Kruger.

2. Cleopatra and Mark Antony

The queen of Eqypt and the Roman general’s love story was the stuff of legend — seduction, betrayal, death by an asp bite. But before the snake came into the picture, I’m sure it was sexy.

3. Shah Jahan and Mumtaz Mahal

She bore him 14 kids before she died and out of grief; he built her the most beautiful mausoleum in the world. They were srsly in love.

4. Vladimir and Vera Nabokov

Carl Mydans/Time & Life Pictures

Over half a century together and hardly ever apart, the Lolita author still wrote his wife letters, though his later letters were about things like milk prices. But, hey, that’s what real love looks like.

5. Lauren Bacall and Humphrey Bogart

She was 20, and he was 45 when they married. The age difference mattered little to Bogey and Baby. If you were 33, you’d fit right in between.

6. John Lennon and Yoko Ono

She was anavant-garde artist and he was a Beatle. They pioneered “bed-ins” as a form of protest, and that’s pretty hot.

7. Barack and Michelle Obama

The POTUS and FLOTUS. Yes, please. If you’re attracted to power, here’s the couple you’d want to know…intimately.

8. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt

On a list of power couples, they’re bound to make an appearance. But here’s a new moniker: Brangie. Sounds kinda like an extreme sport that you’d want to master, right?

9. Beyoncé and Jay-Z

The Associated Press

They went from Crazy in Love to Drunk in Love and they don’t look to be stopping any time soon. They’re the paradigm music couple, and, admit it, you’re a little in love with them too.

10. Portia de Rossi and Ellen Degeneres

Jeff Kravitz / FilmMagic

Cumulatively, their fan base spans all Arrested Development addicts to daytime TV watchers across America. These two seem to adore each other and laugh plenty. And who doesn’t like to laugh?

11. Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone

Spidey and his funny girl. Author’s note: I once saw them eating at a restaurant and I almost asked to join… their relationship.

12. Bono and his sunglasses.

He has them in rainbow colors. That’s LUV.
