Happy Valentine’s Day. Whether or not you have your own Valentine, we all have Val. And that Val is Val Kilmer (@ValEKilmer), the World’s Most Prolific Celebrity Selfie Taker. If anyone is wondering what he’s been up to recently, the answer is taking pictures of himself and posting them to Twitter. Oh, and he’s starring in a play about Mark Twain, playing Mark Twain. But that’s irrelevant.
What matters is Valentine’s Day and how yours can be enhanced with a little extra Val.

Put a Val in your Valentine’s Day!
Hooray, it’s Valentine’s Day! If you’re single, you’re probably pissed off and hate everything. And if you’re coupled, you’re probably really stressed out and hate everything because you haven’t made a dinner reservation, haven’t procured a gift, or made any plans whatsoever because it’s been really crazy at work and you just forgot. So all in all, it’s not exactly everyone’s favorite time of year. But we’re about to change all that with this gallery of the 40 most adorable celebrity couples doing adorable things!
Happy Valentine’s Day! Or not, depending on how you feel about the holiday. And listen, we know there are a lot of singletons out there who are not so pleased about how much we in the media focus on this holiday. But we can’t help it, OK? We cover divorces and breakdowns and deaths and fights all the time, and it’s really nice to have a day that’s all about the important things in life. (No, not the unveiling of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, though that’s nice too.) We just really want to escape from it all and look at Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez nuzzling each other. We would like to soak in the happiness that is Adam Lambert and Sauli Koskinen’s love, bask in Jay-Z and Beyonce’s adorable glory, shiver with delight at the perpetual hotness of Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, and marvel at the lasting power of Will and Jada Pinkett Smith. We are hoping some of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s world-saving affection will rub off on us. And we’re even going to allow for some admiration of Tom Brady and Gisele Bunchen, football loyalties aside.
But here’s some good news for you black-hearted V-day haters: The last time we did a best couples gallery, back in December, one of those couples announced their divorce a few days later. Oh, no! What have we done?!?

Did you forget it was Valentine’s Day today? Did you wonder why you kept seeing heart-shaped boxes of chocolate everywhere you went, but never really put two and two together? Did you wake up screaming in the middle of the night as you realized your loved one is probably expecting at least a card? Don’t worry. TheFABlife has your foolishly unprepared back. There’s no better way to say “Please don’t break up with me” than with one of our sensual celeb-entines! Let the sight of Nicki Minaj, Rihanna or Kristen Stewart save your forgetful behind. So print them off, cut them out and run to your love! Go! Go now! Before it’s too late!
Gentlemen, prepare to have your Valentine’s Day plans reduced to rubble by Owl City‘s Adam Young’s valentine to Taylor Swift. Apparently last year Swift hinted at a crush on the “Fireflies” singer, confessing that she wrote “Enchanted” “about this guy that I met in New York City, and I had talked to him on email or something before, but I had never met him. And meeting him, it was this overwhelming feeling of: I really hope that you’re not in love with somebody.” Well, Young got the hint, but only after he realized Swift had hidden the letters A-D-A-M in the song’s liner notes as well as incorporated the word “wonderstruck” from one of the emails they had exchanged. “Everything about you is beautiful. You’re an immensely charming girl with a wonderful heart and more grace and elegance than I know how to describe,” Adam replied to Taylor on his website. “You are a true princess from a dreamy fairy tale; a modern Cinderella. I’m terribly sorry it’s taken me such a long time to reply but I figured Valentine’s Day was the perfect time to write this note to you and simply say… I was enchanted to meet you, too.” Boom! That’s the sound of your bouquet of red roses and heart-shaped box of chocolates being blown out of the water.
We actually think this pairing is perfect; Adam and Taylor both wear their hearts on their sleeves in a darling cartoon-woodland-creature sort of way. As if all that sweetness wasn’t enough, Young changed the lyrics to Swift’s Enchanted, singing “I was never in love with someone else / I never had somebody waiting on me / ‘Cause you were all of my dreams come true / And I just wish you knew / Taylor I was so in love with you.” Might as well take your girls to Arby’s, fellas. There ain’t no competing with this guy.

Valentine’s Day has passed and while we hope all our readers got plenty of smooches from their loved ones, we’re going to ask that you keep any photographic evidence private. Paris Hilton, Speidi, Jon Gosselin, and Snooki of “Jersey Shore” have all been captured mid-makeout and trust us – it’s not cute. Roaming eyes, waving tongues, and off-target chin kisses cannot escape the snap of a lens. Allow these ten repulsive shots of celebrities sucking face to demonstrate the downside of PDA while paparazzi is present. [Photos: Getty Images and Splash News Online]
Rom-com fluff fest Valentine’s Day made its British debut today, with much less of a turnout than Hollywood’s star-packed premiere earlier this week. Jessica Alba and co-star Ashton Kutcher hopped the pond, along with Emma Roberts and Demi Moore.
Alba’s been in a red carpet rut lately, and her streak continued in foggy Londontown with some atrocious footwear. We hate the peep-toe, laced-up, bright blue booties. Their clunkiness paired with the opaque black tights makes her ensemble unbalanced and overpowers the otherwise cute, playful dress. We’re wishing she had gone with some understated round-toe pumps. What are your thoughts on Alba’s clodhoppers? [Photo: Getty Images]
While Valentine’s Day looks like little more than a well-timed fluffy date movie, its cast is nothing short of all-star. Leading ladies Anne Hathaway, Jennifer Garner, Jessica Biel, and Jessica Alba were amidst last night’s star-studded premiere in Hollywood. Though all four actresses have a hard time looking less-than-gorgeous, their red carpet garb was hit-and-miss. While Hathaway dazzled in a mini blue number, the other ladies left us bored and/or horrified. Poor J-Biel evoked candy cane dreams in her frilly disaster of a dress. Alba looked okay from the shoulders down, but her mop was in dire need of a blowout. Jen Garner’s body was bangin’ in a form-fitting strapless frock, but she could’ve chosen something less snooze-inducing. Whose Valentine look do you love?
