Blast From The Past: Former Celebrity Couples

SJP and RDJr


Robert Downing Jr. and Sarah Jessica Parker met on the set of Firstborn in 1984, when they were both just 18 years old. Two weeks into their relationship, the young couple moved in together and would stay together until their breakup in 1991. The reason for their brea, unfortunately,unately Downing’s progressing addiction to drugs, to which Sarah Jessica Parker wanted nothing to do with. Thankfully in 2000 Downing was able to achieve sobriety. In 2015 Downing said an interview that he had recently met with Parker to make amends and had nothing but beautiful praise of the now accomplished mother, actress, wife, and artist.

From The Notebook to real life

E! Online

The Notebook came out in 2004 and immediately swept the world up in the on-screen romance of the characters of Allie (Rachel McAdams) and Noah (Ryan Gosling). It seems the couple was just so perfect on-screen that they had to try it off-screen as well, and man did that work. The couple even recreated their infamous movie kiss at the MTV Movie Awards much to the delight of well, the world. Ok, are you ready to swoon? By 2007 their relationship was over, and Gosling told GQ about their breakup, “God bless The Notebook. It introduced me to one of the great loves of my life. But people do Rachel and me a disservice by assuming we were anything like the people in that movie. Rachel and my love story is a hell of a lot more romantic than that. . . The only thing I remember is we both went down swingin’ and we called it a draw.” *sigh*
