The 13 Least Believable Movie Couples Of All Time

By  | 

Warner Bros

There are certain couples that are almost too real on-screen. Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling in The Notebook, Olivia Newton John and John Travolta in Grease or Hilary Duff and Adam Lamberg in The Lizzie McGuire Movie, to name a few. When you see those duos on the big-screen, it almost breaks your heart to know that IRL they aren't actually a thing (except obvs Rache and Ry, who were).

But sometimes, that's not the case and you're stuck thinking “there is absolutely no good reason that the ~powers that be~ decided to link those two up.” This is an homage to Hollywood's odd-couples who didn't fool us for a SECOND with their on-screen matchup.

1. Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel, Sex Tape

Best friends from college? Maybe. People who have ever or will ever or would ever be together romantically long term? Absolutely not.

2. Vin Diesel and Michelle Rodriguez, The Fast And The Furious

I see your lips touching, but I don't know that we can call that making out.

3. Julia Roberts and Nick Nolte, I Love Trouble

These two star as rival detectives, but the real mystery is how they came to be paired opposite each other. Nick's twenty-five years older than Julia, after all.

4. Woody Allen and Mira Sorvino, Mighty Aphrodite


That's gonna be a no from me, dawg.

5. Megan Fox and Shia LaBeouf, Transformers

Sorry, but let's not pretend that Megan was in this movie for any reason other than to give teenage boys hope that one day they could swap spit with someone that beautiful. If Shia can do it, anyone can.

6. Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck, Gigli

The fact that this union somehow took place in real life as well doesn't make it any more plausible.

7. Kevin James and Rosario Dawson, Zookeeper

Is everyone else in the world seeing a different version of Kevin James than I am? How is he pulling these dime pieces?

8. Claire Danes and Steve Martin, Shopgirl

I get that this was intentional juxtaposition to make Jason Schwartzman look better, but still. C'mon.

9. Lily Tomlin and John Travolta, Moment By Moment


Nope. Can't do it. Can't even imagine it happening, make it stop.

10. Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston, Just Go With It


Of all Adam's egregious pairings, I'd say this one is the worst. And that's saying a lot for someone who's been paired with Drew BarrymoreKate Beckinsale, and many many many many more ladies with whom he couldn't rustle up even a spark.

11. Mark Wahlberg and Zooey Deschanel, The Happening

WHAT IS THIS HOW DID I NOT KNOW ABOUT THIS. Honestly never heard of a weirder pairing in my life.

12. Ashley Judd and Dwayne Johnson, The Toothfairy

Fairly confident she could fit in his pocket.

13. Christian Bale and Katie Holmes, Batman Begins


Such a poor match that Katie actually had to be replaced by Maggie Gyllenhaal in the next film. A more belieavble duo, for sure!

14. Tilda Swinton and Tom Hiddleston, Only Lovers Left Alive

What is it, you ask? Why just your average vampire movie starring Tilda Swinton and Tom Hiddleston as the romantic leads. NOTHING OUT OF THE ORDINARY. (Except totally out of the ordinary because no way in hell would those two ever wind up together.)
