In honor of Valentines Day this week we took a wistful stroll down cinematic memory lane. The cameras stopped rolling and they yelled cut which signified the end of these romances on screen but not in our minds. Read on to learn just why these on screen couples will always hold a special place in everyone's hearts:
Starting with the greatest love story of all time, the gut-wrenching tale of true love in between Romeo and Juliet starring Leonardo Dicaprio and Claire Danes. They made us believe an all or nothing love can and does sometimes happen in this lifetime. Who can forget Richard Gere and Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman? Only Hollywood could come with this far fetched tale and actually make it work in the most unexpected way. Then there is Grease starring John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John and Dirty Dancing starring Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey. Not only did these two flicks shows us their love of dancing but their hot love for each other which made for the perfect on screen affair. Matthew McConaughey and Kate Hudson in How to Lose A Guy in 10 Days were the two people that everyone knows belongs together except them two, the ultimate recipe for a charming romantic comedy. The leads in the Twilight saga- Kirsten Stewart and Robert Pattinson and in The Notebook- Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams never fail to remind us that no matter what it is, if its meant to be it will always be no matter what the circumstances at play are. Last but not least how can you not have a soft spot for the Carrie and Aidan relationship? Sarah Jessica Parker and John Corbett stole our hearts with their undeniably captivating yet heartbreaking on screen romance in Sex and the City. While on the subject of Carrie, does anyone else ever question the Big situation and how he managed to turn that into a marriage?
