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

Twentieth Century Fox Film Corporation / Via

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.

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.


8. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt

Fred Prouser/Fred Prouser

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?

So, which celebrity couple would you like to snuggle up between? Tell us below!
