NEW YORK (RushPRnews) 02/13/09–Valentine’s Day is a day for couples to celebrate their love and for Hallmark to make a killing… RushPRnews decided to step out of the box for this year’s Valentine’s day. Instead we thought we’d bring you a different take on couples, with a top ten list of Hollywood Cinema’s most mismatched couples.
10. Jennifer Lopez & Ben Affleck (GIGLI)
Not the most shinning moment for J-Lo and Affleck, with the then-couple starring as the hit-man and the lesbian that become best friends. Their on-screen roles granted them about as much success as their marriage.
9.Â Â Â Jennifer Lopez & Ralph Fiennes (MAID IN MANHATTAN)
Holy No Chemistry Batman! J-Lo makes the list again, this time paired up with an awkward Ralph Fiennes, in a movie that could just as well not have been â€œmaidâ€â€¦
8.Â Â Â Nikki Blonsky & Zac Efron (HAIRSPRAY)
Nothing could ever top the raunchy genius of John Watersâ€™ original â€œHairsprayâ€ starring Ricki Lake as Tracy Turnblad- but this version casting the young heartthrob Zac Efron of Nikki Blonskyâ€™s affections makes for a rather atypical duo that donâ€™t quite cut it in the realms of on-screen romance.
7.Â Â Â Julia Roberts & Woody Allen (EVERYONE SAYS I LOVE YOU)
What a lucky guy that Woody Allen; he sure gets together with some of the most gorgeous women in Hollywood. Maybe the fact heâ€™s the writer, director and main star of most of his movies has something to do with it. For what itâ€™s worth, Allen is still one of Cinemaâ€™s greatest talents, so whoever he matches himself up with, at least heâ€™s always charming.
6.Â Â Â Kate Winslet & Jack Black (THE HOLIDAY)
It is mostly just difficult to take Jack Black seriously in a romantic role is hard enough. Pair him up with Kate Winslet, and youâ€™ve just produced mismatching at itâ€™s best.
5.Â Â Â Anne Heche & Harrison Ford (SIX DAYS SEVEN NIGHTS)
Quinn (Ford) and Robin (Heche) try and evade pirates and the outcome isâ€¦ not so sexy.
4.Â Â Â Adam Sandler & Kevin James (I NOW PRONOUNCE YOU CHUCK & LARRY)
When two straight Brooklyn firefighters pretend to be a gay couple, you have pretty well made yourself the worst match of the century.
2.Â Â Â Charlize Theron & Woody Allen (CURSE OF THE JADE SCORPION)
Woody â€œCassanovaâ€ Allen strikes again in the film where two people who hate each other, end up realizing, maybe they donâ€™t. Entertaining movie; really unlikely match.
1.Â Â Â Jessica Alba & Mike Myers (THE LOVE GURU)
Mike Myers tests his Mojo in the â€œLove Guruâ€, but really now, would a hottie like Jessica fall for a Guru like Maurice Pitka?
