They were also spotted together on a flirty lunch in a Los Angeles restaurant that March when Scarlett rested her legs on the actor’s lap.

LIAM HEMSWORTH AND EIZA GONZALEZ
Liam was seen passionately – and publicly – kissing Eiza only a day after it was announced he and Miley Cyrus had officially ended their engagement and relationship in 2013.
Just days earlier Liam and Eiza were spotted partying in Vegas together.
Rumors claimed they had only just met in Sin City and “really hit it off”.
He reportedly stopped by Eiza’s place to drop off a piece of luggage, when they chatted for a while before embracing for the kisses.
The romance would be fleeting – with Liam later rekindling his relationship with Miley in 2016 – marrying her in 2018 and spitting the following year.
MILEY CYRUS AND KAITLYNN CARTER
Miley and Kaitlynn’s tumultuous romance began in the wake of their twin splits from their partners.
Kaitlynn initially shared vacation photos of herself aboard a yacht with Miley on August 9 2019, only two days before the Wrecking Ball singer announced that she had separated from her husband Liam Hemsworth whom she’d been married to since December of the previous year.
On August 11, photos were released of the two women cuddling and kissing aboard a boat, confirming the two had sparked up their own relationship.
Their tryst reportedly took Liam by surprise. He filed for divorce from the Party In The USA singer after seeing the photos of her and Kaitlynn kissing aboard the boat.
Kaitlyn had only recently ended her five-year romance with Brody Jenner.
The Hills: New Beginnings star later admitted her two-month romance with the Wrecking Ball singer — which ended in September 2019 — took her by surprise, but she fell hard for her friend.
REESE WITHERSPOON AND JAKE GYLLENHAAL
Reese famously moved on from her marriage to Ryan Phillippe with Rendition co-star Jake in 2006 – months after the split from the father of her two children.
The pair would go onto date for three years – splitting in December 2009.
Sources close to the couple said the relationship had just run its course.
A friend told U.S. TV network E!: ‘They needed time to figure it out and they were on different coasts. When they were finally together, they talked it out and decided they’re not going to be together any more.
‘There are no other people involved. The relationship just ended. It just fizzled. But they also wanted to be careful and private about it because of Reese’s kids.’
ANNA FARIS WITH CHRIS PRATT AND MICHAEL BARRETT
Anna was married to Ben Indra when she first crossed paths with Chris Pratt at a table read for Take Me Home Tonight in early 2007.
The pair began dating shortly afterwards and tied the knot in 2009.
In her 2017 memoir Unqualified, Anna said meeting Chris gave her the motivation to get out of her failing romance with Indra.
She wrote: ‘The reality is that if I hadn’t met Chris, my first marriage probably would have lasted until I found a different someone else. Chris was my cattle prod. I needed someone to come along and show me something different than the relationship I knew.’
Her rebound with Chris was ‘hot and heavy in a way that I’d never experienced before. You might think that, fresh off an almost decade long relationship, I would be hesitant to move on to the next, but I couldn’t have fallen more headfirst into my feelings for Chris’ she wrote.
The pair welcomed a son Jack, now 11, and split in August 2017. One month later Anna moved on with cinematographer Michael Barrett – who she wed in 2021.
JESSE JAMES AND KAT VON D
In September 2010 – three months after divorcing Sandra Bullock, Jesse James sparked up a romance with tattooist Kan Von D.

SOPHIE TURNER AND PEREGRINE PEARSON

Peregrine is the eldest son and heir of Michael Pearson, the 4th Viscount Cowdray – a former film producer who owns a significant chunk of the Pearson media empire.
SELENA GOMEZ AND THE WEEKND
The pair first sparked dating rumors in January 2017 when they were seen cuddling outside of Giorgio Baldi in Santa Monica, California – just two months after the singer had split from girlfriend Bella Hadid.
They were seen together at the Met Gala in May and the Harper’s Bazaar Icons event, both in NYC.
However by October 2017 the pair had split amid claims they had been having trouble for ‘months’ because of their difficult schedules – while he has been on tour, she was filming a Woody Allen movie A Rainy Day In New York in NYC.
Days later Selena was seen with ex-beau Justin Bieber while The Weeknd would reignite his romance with Bella.
JENNIFER LOPEZ AND CRIS JUDD
J-Lo and Judd first met in 2000 when he was hired to direct her music video for Love Don’t Cost A Thing.

KATY PERRY AND JOHN MAYER
The songstress sparked up a romance with famous lothario John in early 2012 – shortly after the end of her marriage to Russell Brand at the end of 2011.
‘I had a crush on him for a long time, and it just so happens we fit together great,’ she told W Magazine in 2013.
The pair had an on-off romance for three years before parting ways in 2015.

Mayer has a womanising reputation having famously loved (and left) celebs like Taylor Swift, Jennifer Aniston, Jessica Simpson, Jennifer Love Hewitt, and Minka Kelly.
ELIZABETH TAYLOR AND MIKE TODD
Liz famously moved on from second husband Michael Wilding at lightning speed with third spouse Mike Todd.

She and Todd would wed in February 1957 – but Todd would die in a plane crash in March 1958 – just six months after the birth of the couple’s only daughter, Liza.
