2012! The year of The (supposed) Apocalypse. The year of “Call Me Maybe” (which may be related to the Apocalypse, who really knows?). And, finally, the year of a few ill-fated celebrity hookups. Call them flings or fleeting romances or however else you hold on to your faith in true love, from Skrillex and Ellie Goulding to Russell Brand and Ginger Spice, these are the celebs who got together and then quickly broke apart this very year:
Aw, they’re so in love! But what we are all secretly thinking when we look at Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan-Tatum is: Damn them! You can’t be that hot, rich, successful, talented and in love! How the hell do they have it all? And yet, they do. Channing and Jenna met on the set of their 2006 film Step Up , and the sexy couple took their then on-screen romance to another level and married in 2009. Three years later the pair are still going strong and about to make their second on screen appearance as a couple in the indie film 10 Years, which opens wide across the country today! The film features an all-star cast including Justin Long, Rosario Dawson, Ari Graynor and of course Channing and Jenna who all head back home for their 10 year high school reunion. While some of us would much rather watch Channing shaking it with his shirt off, we love to see him in his best role as husband to wife Jenna! Take a look at some of their cutest pics though the years!

The last major boyfriend that we kept hearing about before Drew Barrymore started dating, and eventually married Will Kopelman was Justin Long. They were, allegedly, on and off, but always looked so adorable when spotted together. But life goes on, and Drew is expecting her first baby with her new hubby, and sources are abuzz with the fact that Justin has a new main squeeze as well. Apparently, the actor is dating Rooney Mara‘s older sister, Kate Mara. It’s reportedly a “very new relationship,” and the duo were seen getting their couple on in New York this weekend, where Kate took him out for his birthday, according to Us Weekly.
That was on the second of this month, FYI. Coincidentally, that’s also the same day Drew got married! So her wedding anniversary is on his birthday, which has to be a tiny bit weird, right? No? OK — back to the happy bit. The couple that watches musicals together, stays together. That’s our new thing. Long and Mara went to see Jesus Christ Superstar on Broadway late last month. A source reveals, “They were awesome and came backstage after to meet the cast.” We can totally see this working out. They look cute together!

It’s common knowledge that no one can really enjoy a film while suffering from extreme neck frigidness, which is why we’re glad to see the celebs flocking to the Sundance Film Festival are taking pains to keep their jugulars warm. Check out our bundled-up gallery below to see everyone from from Seth Rogen to Elizabeth Olsen, Laura Prepon to Common get cozy from the chin down in Utah. Because you can’t rely on those swag bags for everything, especially hypothermia prevention.

We’d like to officially helm the campaign to support Leighton Meester and Justin Long as an official couple! People is reporting that the pair was spotted dining together at La Poubelle on Sunday, where they ate well into the evening and left holding hands. Says a source on the scene, “They were happily willing to talk to fans who approached them.”
We love Leighton — she’s always edgy on the red carpet and is the HBIC of guilty pleasure TV and movies (The Roommate, always and forever). Justin is the dude next door, with easy on the eye good looks and a friendly, approachable demeanor. Plus he knows how to handle dating an A-List lady, what with that Drew Barrymore notch on his bed. While we loved the idea of Leighton and Garrett Hedlund together, it seems as though that was a quick affair. Thus we say, Garrett who?
Alyssa Milano‘s pregnant belly already upstaged her co-stars at the Hall Pass premiere—now she’s taking over events for movies she didn’t even star in! Stars Bradley Cooper, Robert DeNiro and Abbie Cornish were all in attendance at the premiere of their upcoming drama Limitless, but surprise guest Milano took plenty of the camera time, posing with her hands under her stomach—just in case you forgot she was expecting. Is it too late to digitally add her to the movie?
Check out photos of Milano and the other stars in the gallery below.

It’s tough being Scarlett Johansson. One minute you’re happily married to the Sexiest Man Alive Ryan Reynolds, the next you’re divorced and being linked to a bunch of hot, funny guys. Whether or not you’re actually dating them, uhh, no one seems to care. So add Justin Long to the ever-growing list of geeky, comic actors that ScarJo is rumored to be pursuing, right after Jason Sudeikis and Jared Leto (who, admittedly, is neither geeky nor comical, at least not intentionally).
Johansson and Long were seen leaving an Iron & Wine concert together in L.A. on Tuesday night, which is either a) scandalous!!, b) sexytime!!! c) they’re doin’ it!!!! or d) two friends who starred in a movie together who have the same taste in music. You be the judge. We’re just waiting for the time when these ScarJo rumors come full circle and it’s being reported that she’s actually hooking up with Sandra Bullock.
We thought Emma Stone looked amazing as a redhead, but she totally blew us away with her new blonde look this weekend. Stone and about a thousand other celebs were on hand for the Trevor Live show to benefit The Trevor Project this weekend, and she earned an easy A for her new look. We hear she’s lightened her locks for her role as Gwen Stacy in the new Spiderman movie, but we kinda hope she sticks with this look for a while.
Check out our full gallery of celebrities who were in attendance to celebrate a great cause that provides a suicide support line for gay youth.

Enjoying the Labor Day weekend? Well, depending on the weather in your neighborhood, it’s not too late to check out Going The Distance, the new romantic comedy starring Drew Barrymore and Justin Long. At the world premiere of the film in Los Angeles last week, our own Janell Snowden — armed, as always, with her her trusty Samsung Epic™ 4G — caught up with Jimmy Fallon (who, once upon a time, starred opposite Drew in a romantic comedy himself!), Airborne Toxic Event and co-star Natalie Morales. Check out their thoughts on the film below!
We irrationally love Drew Barrymore – she’s battled demons, dated rock stars and always has a hairstyle we covet. Sure, she’s no Meryl Streep but she always makes fun movies, and she produced Donnie Darko so we have some respect. We just want her to be happy, and she always looks thrilled whenever she’s with her on-again-off-again boyfriend Justin Long. The two walked the red carpet for their new flick, Going The Distance and oh, how our hearts were warmed to see them looking cozy and adorable together. Is it too much to ask that these kids make it work? (If only so we can use our new nickname for them: BarryMacGuy.)
They were joined by Ã‚Â their co-stars Christina Applegate, Charlie Day and Jason Sudeikis at Grauman’s Chinese Theater last night for the premiere of the film, check out our gallery of all the stars below.
