    "Their relationship pretty much defined my teenage years. I know there was the whole 'scandal' with her cheating and now they're both in happy, long-term relationships. But I recently rewatched the Twilight movies and I think it would be super interesting to see them get back together, considering how much they’ve both changed."

    "I've never been a particular fan of either of them, but I remember reading about how he adopted her daughter and how they were renewing their vows every year. As a teenage girl I was so smitten with this love, so I was surprised when they announced they were getting divorced."

    "I remember being so confused when everyone was shipping her alleged relationship with Harry Styles, and I was like: 'Wait, isn't she with Jason Sudeikis?!?!' That's how I found out they broke up 😭."

    12. Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth

    "Miley and Liam's breakup was sad. They were so cute in The Last Song, and she still can't get through singing 'Wrecking Ball' without breaking down. When they got married, I thought they'd realized they were meant to be; but I guess that just goes to show that we never know what goes on behind closed doors."

    "It hasn’t been that long since they got divorced, but the breakup between Nia Vardalos (from My Big Fat Greek Wedding) and Ian Gomez (who also starred in the movies, which were based on their real-life relationship!) still makes me sad. She seems happy, though."

    "I'm glad they still remain good friends today so at least there's that. But there's still a part of me that wishes they worked things out as a couple. I mean, just look at them!!! They were a legendary couple and gave birth to the most beautiful person in the world (Zoë Kravitz) — what a team."

    "I know a lot of people think this, too, but Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev — the chemistry they had as Damon Salvatore and Elena Gilbert on The Vampire Diaries was so real!!! I mean, I know he’s got his own family now but I still believe they were meant to be."

    "I just loved Jason Segel and Linda Cardellini together in Freaks and Geeks! But we allegedly got Forgetting Sarah Marshall out of their breakup, so I guess there's a silver lining — I’m still personally devastated, though!"

    "It's definitely Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt for me. I've been a fan of Angelina's since I was 12. And when she finally got together with Brad, they seemed to compliment each other so well. When I heard that they were splitting up, I was devastated."
