21 Celebrity Couples You Don’t Remember


2. Ryan Gosling and Sandra Bullock

In 2002, a movie came out, called Murder by Numbers. It is a rather dull and predictable thriller which starred, among others, Sandra Bullock and Ryan Gosling who was at the time little more than another 20-something pretty face trying to make it big. The movie was not a huge success, but Gosling’s career got on the right track after that.

If we are being really cynical, we might say that Sandra played a role in his subsequent success, you know, helping out her boy toy. The reason why this relationship was doomed probably had to do with the fact that Bullock was 16 years Gosling’s senior, made even more noticeable by the fact that Gosling looked 12 at the time. Not that he looks much older these days.

Interestingly enough, Gosling recently said that he was only really in love twice over the course of his very busy and tumultuous dating career – with Bullock and later with Rachel McAdams.
