We know better than believing anything that the show business tries to sell us. Over the years, fans have realized that the fictional scripts in Hollywood are not limited to just movies. Celebs often create an interesting buzz around themselves to stay relevant. It’s true that merely possessing talents and skills isn’t enough to retain fame. That’s why these popular stars pretended to be in love even off the screen. As a result, fans ended up discussing their sham love life more than their movies or series. Sometimes Hollywood influences our minds more than we realize. Based on various sources and reports, the following couples pretended to be in love just to spark a buzz. Find out the celebs who reportedly faked their relationships for publicity.
Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston
Out of all the Hollywood relationships ever, this is one of the craziest romances that blew our minds away. Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston are international personalities who would have definitely become a power couple. But the constant PDAs and Tom’s “I heart TS” t-shirt seemed far-fetched. Fans and the media couldn’t help but wonder if this short-spanned relationship was all for show.
Vanessa Hudgens and Zac Efron
Disney may be the most preferred channel for teen viewers, but it’s not known for leaving the same impression on its teen cast. The studio is widely admired for its amazing PR strategies and marketing campaigns to promote a movie or series. But several teen stars emerging from the House of Mouse have revealed how these strategies took a toll on them. They were often compelled to carry a prescribed image of themselves in public. We can’t help but raise our eyebrows on connecting Disney’s PR strategies with Vanessa Hudgens and Zac Efron’s relationship. The two costars from “High School Musical” were always on the news for their popular off-screen romance. But it ended as soon as the franchise released its last film.
Henry Cavill and Kaley Cuoco
It is less likely for two grownups with worldwide fame and millions of followers to make their relationship public unless they are sure about each other. The “Big Bang Theory” star, Kaley Cuoco and “Man of Steel” actor Henry Cavill threw us for a loop after they were spotted taking strolls with arms wrapped around each other. Their closeness looked pretty serious but it lasted only for two weeks. What do you think about it? The two-week romance did shake the tabloids and shoot their names to headlines.
Most of us believe that Kristen‘s affair with Rupert Sanders was the reason why her relationship with Robert Pattinson fell apart. But could she be accused of “cheating”? According to some speculations, Kristen and Robert’s entire relationship was orchestrated to promote the fantasy film “Twilight”. Fans had poured their hearts into the vampire love story and perhaps, the producers wanted to capitalize on it. It certainly helped, given how strongly we wanted to believe in Edward and Bella.
As cute as Emma and Andrew looked together, fans still reserve their doubts over this former couple. The actors met on the sets of “The Amazing Spider-Man” where they played love interests as Peter Parker and Gwen Stacy. Soon, the scripted romance escalated to real-life romance, which lasted only until the second and last instalment of the franchise released.
Jennifer Lopez and Drake
Fans from all over the world were losing their minds over Jennifer Lopez and Drake’s sudden public appearances together. They are two of the most powerful music stars whose closeness was meant to stir euphoria. It was hard to call it a sham after Drake attended Lopez’ shows, followed by the two sharing some pictures on Instagram. Fans were disheartened to learn later that the musicians were just working on an album together and sparking these speculations to promote their work.
Kendall Jenner and Harry Styles
Let’s admit that everyone was equally envious and in awe to see these ridiculously attractive entities together. Tabloids and paparazzi were going bonkers ever since Kendall and Harry had started to attend every party and event together. Almost every millennial was obsessing over the internet to gather more details on this romance. But some sources later revealed that the two young powerhouses were only trying to show it to Kendall’s mom.
Jennifer Anniston And Vince Vaughn
Jennifer and Vince sparked the attention with their chemistry on the sets of “The Break-Up” in 2005. After Jennifer’s split with Brad Pitt, the couple united but mutually decided to end it within a year. It’s interesting how it lasted until the movie released. Genuine or not, this short-lived romance did help us enjoy their chemistry in the movie.
Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries
No one ever bought Kim and Kris’ relationship. Not even after they tied the knot. As a powerful TV personality, Kim Kardashian was never new to doing things for publicity stunts. Many pegged her marriage with the NBA basketball player as a strategy to increase viewership and grab sponsorships. Their doubts were answered after the couple parted ways within 72 days.
Shailene Woodley and Theo James
The sparks between Shailene and Theo were clearly visible even off the screens and during promotions. Apparently, the two actors grew a thing for each other while filming “Divergent” in 2013. But that romantic bubble burst immediately after the film hit the theatres. Was it a publicity stunt for the movie or a mere attraction between co-workers?
