We all know the ‘90s are back, with grunge style appearing on the runways and streets, “Boy Meets World” getting a remake, and the Backstreet Boys releasing a new album. Along with notable fashion, music and TV shows, the ‘90s were a great decade for infamous celebrity couples. Although most of them have now broken up, we still have a soft spot for power duos like Johnny and Kate, Britney and Justin, and even Brad and Jen.
9. Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe, 1997-2006
The ultimate Young Hollywood couple – they starred in the dark teen dramedy “Cruel Intentions” together – Witherspoon and Philllippe met at Witherspoon’s 21st birthday party, with Witherspoon reportedly telling Phillippe, "I think you're my birthday present.” They dated, fell in love and married in 1999. They had two children together, Ava and Deacon, and separated in 2006.
7. David Beckham and Victoria Beckham, 1997 – today(aaaaaaw)
The only couple on our countdown who are still together today, “Posh & Becks” are the picture of happy domesticity and A-list power. Married in 1999, the couple now have four children, Brooklyn, Romeo, Cruz, and Harper, and are arguably bigger than ever - though they no longer have matching haircuts.
5. Johnny Depp and Kate Moss, 1994-1998
The brooding actor and the rock star supermodel: it’s a match made in tabloid heaven. When the four-year relationship (the couple were rumored to have been engaged) ended, it reportedly left Moss heartbroken, with the supermodel later describing their split as “Years and years of crying.” However, she’s also said, “I was lucky to be with Johnny at that stage. He taught me a lot about fame." The two recently reunited to co-star in Paul McCartney’s new music video, “Queenie Eye.”
2. Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston, 1998-2005
Hollywood’s golden couple seemed like they had it all in the late ‘90s: love, marriage in 2000, and perfect blonde hair. We all know what came next: a messy divorce, cheating rumors, and “Team Aniston” and “Team Jolie.” Although the media portrays them as bitter enemies, Pitt said in a 2009 interview, “We still check in with each other. She was a big part of my life, and me hers.”
1. Courtney Love and Kurt Cobain, 1991-1994
The ultimate grunge couple, Courtney Love of Hole and Kurt Cobain of Nirvana were the picture of flannel-wearing, drug-using, creatively supportive love (remember their joint 1992 Sassy magazine cover and its headline, “Ain’t Love Grand?”). The two married in 1992 (with Kurt in pajamas because he was “too lazy to put on a tux”) and their daughter, Frances Bean Cobain, was born later that year. Cobain committed suicide in 1994.
BONUS: No 90's couples post could be complete without a creepy 90's love song. Swooon.
