Jerry Hall and Rupert Murdoch aren't the first shocking celebrity pairing...and they won't be the last.

1. Marc Anthony and Chloe Green

When J Lo's ex Marc Anthony (then 44) turned up in Disneyland with Chloe Green (then 21) in 2013, it raised more than a few eyebrows. They dated for several months before calling it quits in 2014.

 

2. Sandra Bullock and Ryan Gosling

Before Eva Mendes, Ryan Gosling only had eyes for Sandra Bullock. The actress is 16 years older than 'The Notebook' star but the two dated for a year in 2002 after meeting on the set of Murder by Numbers.

 

3. Ryan Reynolds and Alanis Morissette

In spite of their engagement (!) and five year romance, Alanis Morissette is largely forgotten when it comes to Ryan Reynolds romantic history. They called the whole thing off in 2007.

 

4. Rosario Dawson and Danny Boyle

In 2012, the actress, who was 32, and director met on the set of Trance, but their unlikely romance only lasted a year.  They spoke fondly of each other in interviews following the split, but ignored each other on red carpets.

 

5. Lindsay Lohan and Danny O’Donoghue

This one caught us all by surprise. In 2014, it was reported that The Script frontman Danny O’Donoghue and troubled actress Lindsay Lohan had a “string of dates”. Although she later denied the rumours, The Sun says their blossoming romance “just fizzled out.” Hmmm.

 

6. Lisa Murphy and Michael Flatley

There was a time when socialite Lisa Murphy (now known for her on/off romance with Gerald Kean) and Lord of the Dance superstar Michael Flatley were Ireland’s ‘it’ couple. That time was 2006.

 

7. Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx

If you believe the tabloids, the actors have been in a secret two year relationship, which seems to be based around two grainy pictures of them during that time. Holmes, who was previously married to Tom Cruise, has been sporting an engagement ring of late so this rumour could still have some legs.

 

8. Jessica Biel and Chris Evans

Not only did this pair date, but they were together for five years. Post 7th-Heaven and pre-Captain America, this impossibly attractive couple were set for the same levels of stardom in Hollywood. They eventually parted ways in 2006 and Jessica is now married to Justin Timberlake, whom she has a 22-month-old son Silas with. 

 

9. Justin Timberlake and Fergie

Speaking of JT…before he was a household name, he dated Black Eyed Peas singer Fergie, who revealed the secret romance years after the fact. "He was 16 and I was 23. "It was before he got real heavy with Britney."

 

10. Michael Fassbender and Naomi Campbell

In April 2014, the Oscar-nominated Irish actor and legendary supermodel enjoyed a brief fling. While they didn’t hide their affection on nights out, neither has publicly commented on the romance. Neither wasted much time resting on their laurels - Fassbender is in a long-term relationship with Alicia Vikander.
