We have a dream, guys. Yes, for world peace and tolerance and an end to hunger, but also for Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling to get back together. The couple was just so perfect: gorgeous, low-key, but also totally into public displays of affection, as evidenced by the onstage make out session they blessed us with as part of the world’s greatest Best Kiss Acceptance “speech” at the 2005 MTV Movie Awards. We have other dreams too! Dreams of Chilli and Usher uttering new confessions that involve rekindling their love, Jake Gyllenhaal and Kirsten Dunst picking up where they left off in 2004, Carey Mulligan and Tom Sturridge dating for longer than a week and Johnny Depp dusting off his Winona Forever tattoo and committing to Winona Ryder, forever. All we want is for our favorite celebrity couples of yesteryear to forget all their baggage and set fire to the flames of their former love. Is that too much to ask? Oh, and also no more famine. That would be nice too.
Here they are, the 35 Couples We Wish Would Get Back Together, ranked simply by how much we want them to reunite. Here’s to believing in your dreams.
