Take a rich, famous and aesthetically-blessed male celebrity — it doesn’t matter if he’s from the field of film, TV, music or sports — and hook him up with an equally famous and even more aesthetically-blessed female celebrity and what do you get? A smokin’ hot celebrity couple, that’s what.
You know the type. Those celebrity couples that are paparazzi magnets and whose sex appeal is so intense that they can give autograph seekers second-degree burns if they get too close. When two such celebrities come together, the aesthetic synergy that they create can be so overwhelming that electromagnetic waves are cast out into space. Of course, when such couples come into existence all we want are pics and gossip. Be it at a red carpet event, on the beach, strolling on a sidewalk with a latte in hand — he said, she said, will they, won’t they — yes, celebrity couples fulfill a need we didn’t know we had.
Love ’em or hate ’em, here are some of the hottest celebrity couples today.
Jay-Z and Beyonce
Clearly, the hottest power couple in the music industry today — Jay-Z and Beyonce command attention wherever they go. Be it at an awards show, or court-side at the NBA All-Star game wearing a $22,000 Gucci silk kimono (Beyonce that is. Although if, if any male hip-hop star could pull off wearing a silk kimono and look good, Jay-Z would definitely be the one) — this power couple is American royalty incarnate.
Russell Wilson and Ciara
A hot NFL quarterback and a hotter R&B vocalist and actress – that’s definitively a combination for hotness. Even with a baby bump, Ciara and the handsome Seattle Seahawk can stun and impress whenever they are seen in public.
Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton
Two of the hottest coaches on “The Voice,” Gwen and Blake have struck up a romance that has even sparked rumors of wedding bells in the future. Whether nuptials materialize or not — on the show and off — they are definitely a hit.
Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds
Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds have cheekbones to die for. It is as if fate just had to bring them together to ensure that high cheekbones continue on to future generations of our species. Often described as Hollywood’s most idyllic couple, Blake and Ryan always sizzle for the cameras. Married and with two lovely daughters (yes, they inherited their cheekbones), this celebrity couple are not only hot but also chalk full of wholesomeness.
Anna Faris and Chris Pratt
Anna Faris, film actress and star of the TV series “Mom,” and hunky Chris Pratt have the unique ability to display hotness combined with family tenderness. This married pair of actors remind you of the hot and stylized parents that your best friend had when you were growing up. With the both of them always lauding their feelings about each other and the joys of parenthood, they are not only a lovely couple to look at, but also a couple to look up to for being genuinely in love.
Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello
We are certain that it has been scientifically proven that Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello cannot take a bad picture. The hot Latina star of “Modern Family” and the former “True Blood” hunk are a match straight out of central casting. We dare you, try and find a bad picture of them alone, or together — it’s simply not possible.
Diego Luna and Suki Waterhouse
A hot Latin heartthrob and a sexy British model — an exotic coupling if ever there was one. The star of “Rogue One” and the slim and beautiful Suki have been spotted vacationing in Mexico recently. Exuding a low-key sense of style on the beach, the both of them looked passionately in love. Yes, the Force is definitely strong with Diego.
Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel
For those of us old enough, we can still remember when Justin and Britney Spears were an item. As hot as Justin and Britney looked together, it does not compare to how hot Justin and his wife of five years, Jessica Biel, look today.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West
Call them Kim and Kanye, or just Kimye, no matter how you feel about them individually, there’s no denying that they are a hot couple. Whether recent rumors of problems in the air are true or not, the photographers still flock to them and we still gobble up every picture posted of this dynamic and polemic duo.
Shay Mitchell and Matte Babel
Canada has blessed us with maple syrup, moose steaks, and Alex Trebek. Kind and benevolent as Canada is, they have now blessed us with one of the hottest couples to grace our TMZ app. Yes, we’re talking about the rumored romance between Shay Mitchell and Matte Babel. The star of “Pretty Little Liars” and the reporter for ET have supposedly struck up a romance. Since both are from Toronto — meaning that they are both cosmopolitan and nice — we hope their romantic fires continue to bloom.
Dove Cameron and Thomas Doherty
Dove Cameron, known for her stage role in “Hairspray, Live!” and the latest young stud in the Disney channel stable, Thomas Doehrty, were rumored to be a thing recently. Well, now that they have confirmed it on Twitter, Snapchat and Instagram — we know it must be true. After all, when something is confirmed on the trinity of social media there’s no going back. Good thing too, they make for a real cute couple.
Zayn Malik & Gigi Hadid
Just saying Zayn and Gigi fills you with feelings of insanely high amounts of cuteness. Now that Gigi Hadid, super hot model, and Zayn Malik, talented young singer/song writer, are officially a couple, you know that oodles of hot cuteness are destined to fill the pages of celebrity websites for the foreseeable future.
— Don’t Leave It Just to the Celebrities —
Yes, all of these celebrity couples are hot, but they don’t have to be alone. The next time you and your significant other take a selfie as you leave Taco Bell with a bag full of tacos, snap a selfie. You never know — it might go viral and you too will be able to bask in the adoration of the multitude.
