Which Of These 8 Romantic Reunions Are You Most Excited To See In 2013

By Joanna Robinson | Seriously Random Lists | January 7, 2013 | Comments ()


Chemistry isn't the easiest thing to capture. Either you have it, or you don't. And you can't fake it. Some on-screen chemistry is so potent, you can feel it pouring off the screen in waves. And others are, well, the Twilight franchise. And when it works, it can elevate a film from just good to great. Case in point, the sizzle between Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone somehow made The Amazing Spider-Man feel like more than just an okay superhero origins story. Those kids smoked.

But you don't need to be knocking boots in real life (as Garfield and Stone are) to achieve that level of heat. Many of the following pairings that we can look forward to in 2013 come from sequels, but some just come from the philosophy that if it ain't broke, why fix it? Prepare to fling your underthings.

Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence: I'm in the minority, but I had a lot of issues with Silver Linings Playbook. But not s single one of those issues pertained to the thang that Cooper and Lawrence had going on. They'll re-pair for the decidedly unromantic Serena in 2013. The subject be a downer, but don't they look purty?

Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling: Maybe Emma Stone naturally has heat with everyone. Oh yes. Even Jonah Hill. But no one is more pleased than I to see her re-team with Gosling. The two were irresistibly something in Crazy, Stupid, Love and while I expect Gangster Squad won't be a love story for the ages, these two are going to burn it up.

Julie Delpy and Ethan Hawke: Bar none one of the best romantic pairings in film history is back with the third installment of this sweet and meandering love story. In my opinion, Delpy's refreshing presence is the only thing that has ever been able to neutralize Hawke's unmistakable eau de douche. Before Midnight opens at Sundance this month.

Will Ferrell and Christina Applegate: These two. I love them more than scotch. Rumor has it Anchorman: The Legend Continues is bringing Kristen Wiig on board, but rumor also has it that she's there to make Steve Carrell make loud noises.

Hugh Jackman and Famke Janssen: Isn't Jean Grey dead? Well...sure. But this is X-Men. Lit'rally anything could happen. The lovely Janssen filmed at least a small part in The Wolverine. Maybe it's just a flashback/dream sequence, but let's hope it's a scantily clad one.

Bruce Willis and Mary Louise Parker: Red was surprisingly delightful and who knows if they'll be able to recapture that unexpected mix in the sequel? But I don't doubt for a second that Mary Louise Parker and Bruce Willis will, once again, charm the pants off everyone in the theater. Mary Louise Parker's considerable charms have been wasted on the last few seasons "Weeds," it'll be such a joy to see her spark again.

Also whatever is happening here? I approve.

Nick Frost and Simon Pegg: Ah, is there any love sweeter than that between hetero-lifemates? It's been six years since these two flirted up a storm in Hot Fuzz, and though Paul was fun enough, the third, unseen presence of Edgar Wright is needed to make the formula truly click. The World's End doesn't open until October. I can't wait.

Chloe Moretz and Your Sick, Impure Thoughts: She's still only 15, sickos. You'll have to keep a lid on your impure thoughts this June.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • Love that you have The Weimaraner and Kelly Bundy on this list! Applegate has such great comic timing, and she went stiletto to toe with the whole Anchorman crew in this movie- which was no mean feat. Testament to both her comedic brilliance AND Will Ferrell's ability to share the screen/give free rein to anyone willing to grasp all that is sublimely absurd by the ears and make "doggie style luv" to it while streaking through the quad with their green hat on.

    (I know the sex panther reference was begging for attention, but I had no choice but to bring it all back around to the Weimaraner.)

  • Zee

    Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper (Serena)...loved the book, and damn do Lawrence and Cooper look like Serena and George Pemberton. True, the story is very intense but, this will be the first time Lawrence will be playing a villain. I'm really looking forward to this one.

  • duckandcover

    Billie Piper / Any Doctor. *bites knuckle to keep from sobbing*

  • Mrs. Julien

    Clooney always has chemistry. Always. Brad Pitt almost never.

  • e jerry powell

    Looks like Gaultier was grunge-designing drunk in that second Willis/Parker shot.

  • logan

    HEY! I didn't even know who Chole whatshername is so I had no impure thoughts about her. And i still dont!

  • Maguita NYC

    Kick-Ass. Pottymouth anti-hero girl.

  • KZoeT

    Hawke and Delpy with a side of Frost and Pegg.

  • Abbey Road

    My money on the Famke scene is that it's Mystique, yeah? Or did she die or something? I've blocked the third movie out.

  • Maguita NYC

    The Phoenix rises again.

  • Adrienne Marie

    I just love the fact that Nick Frost's part in "Hot Fuzz" was originally written for a woman. And they kept most of the dialogue. Watch it again.

  • I didn't care for Emo Spidey Garfield, not one bit, but I swear he spun Emma Stone like a record, baby. That scene where she kisses him on the roof? I broke into a sweat.

    Yes, to Bruce and Mary Louise - you can believe that his knees hurt a bit less being with her.

    Chloe Moretz? I waited far longer for Natalie Portman.

  • Slash

    Frost and Pegg. No contest whatsoever.

  • theotherone

    John and Alice / The Doctor and Clara / Tory and Abed

  • theotherone

    + Sterling and Lana (Sterling and Pam) / Raylan and Boyd / Walt and Jesse
    / and any of these two epecially Lola and Cat...

  • Groundloop

    "In my opinion, Delpy’s refreshing presence is the only thing that has
    ever been able to neutralize Hawke’s unmistakable eau de douche."

    Repeatedly setting him on fire in Daybreakers also worked pretty well, at least for me.

  • L.O.V.E.

    Chloe Moretz and Your Sick, Impure Thoughts: She’s still only 15, sickos.

  • lowercase_ryan

    Malkovich and paranoia go together like hand and glove.

  • Jamouse

    Cumberbatch and Freeman. Mmmm.

  • foxforcefive


  • Rooks

    Gosh. I made that sound. Everyone's staring at me. Can we start declaring comments as NSFW please? That'd be great.

  • Am I the only one who thought that relationship between Garfield and Stone was really tortured, awkward and mumbly in Spider-man?

  • prince_of_montagu

    BY FAR, Delpy and Hawke.

    The rational part of me didn't think that Before Sunset/Sunrise needed another sequel because the last movie wrapped things up in such a sweet way. But then the emotional part of me bitchslapped the rational part of me for being so silly and once emotional took over, rational left because rational is tired of taking this abuse, dammit.

    What i mean to say is that i'm pretty stoked for Before Midnight.

    Sidenote: I wasn't a fan of Jean and Wolverine AT ALL, but i'm in for any chance to get Famke Janssen back on the screen. Especially as Jean Grey.

  • amanda

    Wow, all white couples (well, at least there's Pegg and Frost for a bromance twist)...

  • lowercase_ryan

    you know these two are the best anyhow


  • Gina Rivera

    Simon and Nick forever. Was watching Attack the Block the other day, so thought it lacked since Simon was not around.

  • Blake

    Chloe Moretz, Pegg and Frost, and Gosling and Stone.

    No Kirk and Spock? Kirk, Spock and Cumberbatch?

    Stone has a habit of dating costars so I assume once Gwen Stacy (and the blonde hair) goes so will Jean Ralphio.

  • dizzylucy

    And now I will never not see the Jean Ralphio thing.

  • John W

    Simon and Nick. Bros before zombies.

  • KatSings

    Gosling & Stone for the win. Though Willis and Parker are my runners up.
