Last month it was announced that “Social Network” scribe Aaron Sorkin and “Sex and the City” star Kristin Davis were dating. The new couple stepped out publicly last night at the LA premiere of “The Newsroom” where Sorkin planted a kiss on his new love.
While some of us are rooting for Sorkin gaining a cute trophy girlfriend and Davis finding a mate (she adopted a child earlier this year as a single mom), they still make a really odd pairing.
Sorkin is an intense writer that used to be addicted to cocaine and Davis is the adorable Charlotte from “Sex and the City.” They just don’t make…sense?
That has us wondering, what other odd couples have we come across lately in Hollywood?
Mary Kate Olsen and Olivier Sarkozy: The 26-year-old child star turned fashion designer/self made billionaire is dating 42-year-old French businessman Olivier Sarkozy. Not only is he super old, but also he’s the former President of France Nicolas Sarkozy’s brother. How random, right?
Ashley Olsen and Lance Armstrong: Back in 2007, a then 21-year-old Ashley Olsen briefly dated Lance Armstrong. I’m assuming this was his rebound from Sheryl Crow. There’s no other way this should have happened.
Brody Jenner and Avril Lavigne: These two broke up earlier this year after nearly two years together. I think it’s safe to say everyone was surprised when rich party boy and reality star Brody got together with the punk pop princess Avril.
Chelsea Handler and 50 Cent: Chelsea finally came out about her 2011 relationship to 50 cent by telling Piers Morgan, "we dated, very casually." This is just so random because Handler makes her living making jokes about the Kardashians while 50 Cent makes his living rapping about how he got shot 9 times. I guess opposites attract?
Ryan Gosling and Sandra Bullock: After meeting on the set of “Murder by Numbers” – Gosling (then 22) and Bullock (then 38) started dating. Sandra's friend Hugh Grant thought their pairing was so random that he referred to 16-years-younger Ryan Gosling as "The Child" and would make a sound of a baby crying whenever he came around. Gosling sure loves a cougar.
Linda Hogan and Charlie Hill: Speaking of cougars and their cubs, Hulk Hogan’s ex wife Linda Hogan started dating 29-years-her-junior Charlie Hill. They dated for four years! Finally they broke up this year when Charlie caught a glimpse of her birth certificate, probably.
Mila Kunis and Macauly Kulkin: If you’ve seen any photo of Macauly Culkin lately he looks real rough, so it’s surprising when you hear that he dated Mila “hot” Kunis for 8 years! 8 freaking years! That’s like the same time most celebs date, get married, have two kids and get divorced in!
Marilyn Manson and Evan Rachel Wood: These two started dating in 2006 and broke up in 2008. It’s only shocking because of their 19-year-age difference and the fact that Marilyn Manson is basically a tranny.
