    17 Random Celebrity Couples You Actually Haven't Thought About In 10 Years

    This is a weird trip down memory lane.

    The duo from The Notebook found real-life romance too, but sadly the closest thing we had to Canadian royalty split in 2007. This one still hurts, TBH.

    2. Rihanna & Shia LaBeouf

    Okay, so this one didn't last long, but it's still wild to think about. LaBeouf said in a 2009 interview that the couple lasted exactly one date. Could you imagine being a fly on the wall for that spectacle?

    3. Jake Gyllenhaal & Reese Witherspoon

    Remember when these two dated? It feels like a LIFETIME ago. The pair met on the set of the film Rendition.

    4. Lance Armstrong & Ashley Olsen

    The pair hooked up for a bit right before Armstrong moved on to singer Sheryl Crow. 2007 was wild, y'all.

    5. John Mayer & Jessica Simpson

    Mayer and Simpson dated from 2006-2007. Speaking of, can I get an "amen" for a Jessica Simpson comeback? THAT is what we need in 2017.

    6. Nick Cannon & Kim Kardashian

    The pair started dating in 2006 and split at the beginning of 2007. She would go on to be part of a multimillion-dollar media empire and marry Kanye West; Cannon of course would marry (and divorce) the iconic Mariah Carey.

    7. Kim Kardashian & Reggie Bush

    Remember when this was a thing? The kouple started dating in 2007. Simpler times.

    8. Macaulay Culkin & Mila Kunis

    Before she settled down with Ashton Kutcher, Kunis dated Culkin for EIGHT YEARS. Random!

    9. Ryan Reynolds & Alanis Morissette

    Reynolds was actually ENGAGED to fellow Canadian Morissette before breaking things off in 2007. The split inspired her 2008 album Flavors of Entanglement.

    10. Scarlett Johansson & Josh Hartnett

    Reports differ, but it looks like the relationship between these two lasted until early 2007. Remember how Hartnett was SUCH a thing at the time?

    And to show how shallow the celebrity dating pool is, after respectively splitting with Morissette & Hartnett, Reynolds and Johansson linked up and eventually got married the next year (before divorcing in 2010).

    12. Evan Rachel Wood & Marilyn Manson

    The oddball pair started dating in 2006 and got engaged in early 2010, only to split later in the year.

    13. Britney Spears & Howie Day

    2007 was bonkers insane. The pop superstar and the "Collide" singer reportedly linked up after meeting in rehab.

    14. Ashanti & Nelly

    These two dated for 10 years before splitting in 2013. Love is a fallacy.

    15. Demi Moore & Ashton Kutcher

    Demi and Ashton were like THE It couple in the late 2000s. The pair married in 2005 but split in 2011.

    16. Michael Bublé & Emily Blunt

    Before she married John Krasinski, the truly iconic Emily Blunt and your mom's favorite singer after Josh Groban were in a serious relationship. The crooner and the actress dated from 2005–2008.

    17. Lindsay Lohan & Samantha Ronson

    We saved the best for last. Remember when these two were a thing? They really only went public in 2008, but if the tabloids are to be believed, they're allegedly also a random 2007 couple!

    (H/T to my Twitter queen @drugproblem for pulling the receipts on this one.)
