Bad Chemistry: The 10 Most Hilariously Unconvincing Movie Couples

View Photo Gallery

Movie couple chemistry is everything. A film could have an abominable script, be shot terribly, and have the dumbest trailer ever, but if we believe that the onscreen duo actually wants to rip each other’s clothes off, it’s a hit. Sadly, no amounting of perfect casting can predict whether or not a pairing will work. Who’s sexier than Brad Pitt and Catherine Zeta Jones? And yet, in Oceans Twelve, they behaved like they were just meeting after a few awkward texts on Tinder. And what about Natalie Portman and Hayden Christiansen in the Star Wars series? Their relationship was supposed to be so epic that it begat Luke and Leia — but the duo was so sexless that you almost believed their kids came into the world via immaculate conception. And we won’t even get into the wasted beauty that was Beyonce and Idris Elba in Obsessed

Here, the ten terrible movie couples we love to hate.

Aaron Eckhart is battling the box office this weekend as a demon-killing version of Frankenstein’s Creature in I, Frankenstein. The film (one of our most anticipated movies of 2014) looks to be a massive rewrite of Mary Shelley‘s terrifying philosophical masterpiece. Not just because, you know, Frankenstein’s Creature is calling himself Frankenstein and battling gargoyles, but also because he’s freaking hot. Which led us to wonder, is Frankenstein’s Creature sexy? So, we went back through time and dredged up the hottest Frankensteins for your consideration.

Kate Hudson + Zach Braff Are Suspiciously Good At Playing House Together

By Melissa Smith
Zach Braff and Kate Hudson play husband and wife in Wish I was Here quite believably. And, OK, we know they’re just friends, but when we caught up with them at the film’s Sundance premiere, we could swear there was some serious real life chemistry going on! Between their doe-eyed gazes and the way they’d chime in to finish each other’s thoughts, our inner matchmaker’s imagination was fired up. Should Matt Bellamy and Taylor Bagley (Zach’s model gf) be worried?

Just How Alike Are Gimme Shelter Co-Stars Vanessa Hudgens And Rosario Dawson? We Quizzed Them To Find Out!

Vanessa Hudgens does her best to erase High School Musical from our collective memory with her new role as pregnant, homeless teen Apple Bailey in Gimme ShelterIt’s a mostly uplifting story, but the darkest scenes in the film belong to Rosario Dawson as Apple’s mom, and the moments the pair are onscreen together are intense and electric.

The two play mother and daughter, share a manager and have lead surprisingly parallel careers, so we wanted to test out each actress’ knowledge about the other. We quizzed the pair during a recent interview in Los Angeles. Just how well do they know the other? Watch and learn.

Gimme Shelter opens in theaters on January 24.

Kate Hudson, Kristen Stewart And The Women Of Sundance 2014

Mad Men may be months away, but Joan and Roger are together again in God’s Pocket (starring Christina Hendricks and directed by John Slattery), which premiered at this year’s Sundance Film Festival. The list of breakout stars from the 2014 Park City fest is already lengthy–and as always, there is the far-from-shabby Robert Redford to gush about. In addition to acclaimed performances from newcomer Miles Teller in Whiplash, Hollywood royalty like Kate Hudson and Maggie Gyllenhaal have jumped into their ski boots, with impressive indie performances in tow.

Jared Leto In Love, Emma Thompson Groovin’: SAG Awards’ Silliest And Actoriest Moments

View Photo Gallery

The SAG Awards may sometimes get lumped in with a bunch of other awards shows, but the event is in a class all its own when it comes to actors either making speeches about their craft or making fun of people who make speeches about their craft. Guess which people we like best? We gathered the funniest bits here, in case you decided to watch Flowers in the Attic — or you know, go see an actual movie — instead.

Free Spirits: The Best Cleavage Styles Of The ’70s Are Making A Comeback Today

Let’s not mince words here. American Hustle, more than anything, was a foray into the many and varied ways into which Amy Adams‘ cleavage could be exposed. From spangly dresses with plunging necklines to the more humble wrap around dress, Adams’ greatest assets were consistently and brazenly on display. Not that anyone is complaining.
