Even the strongest of Hollywood couples can struggle to go the distance. Between all the gossip and the harsh glare of the spotlight, mundane problems can be perceived as scandalous, which can easily take a toll on a relationship. That said, when a star-studded romance is about as genuine as a politician's promise, it's easy to call BS. Here's a list of some of the most obvious (at least in our humble opinion) fake Hollywood couples.
Kaley Cuoco and Henry Cavill
Just as Man of Steel came out in 2013, superman Henry Cavill started dating TV star Kaley Cuoco. Their brief relationship had no shortage of middle school-style hand-holding and visits to a popular Los Angeles farmer's market, where the paparazzi notoriously hang out. Although to hear Cuoco tell it, she was taken completely by surprise by the attention. "I had no one following me until I met Superman. I've been in this business for 20 years, and my whole life, I could go anywhere, do anything. There had not been one paparazzi photo of me until like seven months ago," she told Cosmopolitan. That's clearly stretching the truth. Cuoco was already the hugely recognizable star of The Big Bang Theory (2007-), while Cavill was a relative unknown before donning the red cape and parading about with Cuoco by his side.
Their highly publicized relationship only lasted a few weeks, and adding fuel to the just-for-PR fire was the fact that Cuoco and Cavill were both represented by the same public relations firm. While it's true that may not be unusual in Hollywood, it is odd that Cuoco immediately moved on to tennis pro Ryan Sweeting and married him three months later. That union has since gone kaput. Cuoco chalks the whirlwind romances up to her impulsive nature, but we like to believe the whole thing was probably cooked up in a board room where someone's assistant got fired after failing to secure the proper foam level on a latte.
Courtney Stodden and Doug Hutchison
Reality star Courtney Stodden married The Green Mile (1999) actor Doug Hutchison when she was 16 and he was 51. According to an ABC News interview, they met when Stodden became interested in an acting workshop that Hutchison was holding, so not only could he be her dad, he was also her teacher. Their relationship supposedly blossomed over email, which was monitored by Stodden's mother, Krista, who allegedly told the actor, "I can feel my daughter's love for you. I can feel it inside of my heart, and I can feel your love for her. So rest assured: Me and Alex [Courtney's dad], we have absolutely no problem with you two falling in love." With her parents' approval, and "no sexual emails and no physical contact," Hutchison apparently felt it was fine to continue the romance, because those are all completely customary parameters for the start of a normal relationship.
As if that wasn't suspicious enough, the pair even cooked up a phony story about how a sex tape was ""leaked," which turned out to be a thinly veiled marketing scheme for Stodden's solo adult film that she shot for Vivid. The dubious duo even briefly separated shortly after they married, but kept living in the same house, because real couples absolutely love watching late night booty calls come and go from their ex's bedroom. It appears even though they seem like a totally fake couple, they're definitely cut from the same controversial cloth. Not that it matters, but they're apparently back together, which is a storyline they can sell to the only medium that's been interested in hiring them lately—reality TV shows on unknown outlets.
Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries
Nothing reality mogul Kim Kardashian does has even the vaguest sense of authenticity, so why should her marriage to basketball pro Kris Humphries be any exception? Aside from her current husband, Kanye West, who we believe would marry a poster of himself if it was legal, Kim once made a grand, televised spectacle of her wedding to Humphries in August 2011, but that union hit the bricks just 72 days after the vows. In a reaction statement after the divorce news broke, Humphries said, "I love my wife and am devastated to learn she filed for divorce." Sounds like at least one of them bought into the whole "Fairytale Wedding" storyline.
Kardashian, on the other hand, seemed to have the drama planned accordingly. With her marriage on the skids and all of it already captured on the yet-to-be-aired Season 6 of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, she told People, "It will probably be the best season yet." Maybe the perpetual self-promoter was trying to make the best out of a bad situation, or maybe she married a guy on TV to boost her show's ratings and reportedly make $2 million dollars on the whole thing? Either way, we have just one question: How iron-clad was your pre-nup, Yeezy?
