The child stars of the 1980s were very different than the ones we see today. Back then, if you appeared in one movie, you probably appeared in them all. During his teens, Corey Feldman starred in “Friday the 13th”, “Gremlins,” “The Goonies,” and the all-time classic, “Stand by Me.”
In 1989, Feldman dated Drew Barrymore, also known as a child star of those days. It’s actually kind of sweet when you think about it — they were probably the only people who could fully understand each other. The two came together as an item to the Oscars that very same year.
Robin Thicke and Paula Patton
We know that the love story between Robin Thicke and Paula Patton happened before either of them turned 20. We can only assume that what was going on between them was pure puppy love, but who would have believed these two were together for 21 years?
These were the early 1990s; they fell in love and were by each other's side through thick and thin. Or, shall we say, Thicke and thin? Until 2014 when they realized 21 years was more than enough. While we are unaware of any current partner Paula may have, Robin is currently seeing model April Love.
Tyra Banks and Seal
In the 1990s, Seal was one of the biggest stars around, with his greatest hit, "Kiss From a Rose," winning several awards at the time. Seal is better known for his relationship with Heidi Klum (which was highly publicized but famously ended in a divorce), but before then, another supermodel was on the scene.
Seal and Tyra Banks dated for three months. Their relationship was kept relatively low-key, and besides one event that they appeared together, no one made a fuss of them. In fact, other than Seal's marriage to Klum, both stars' love life didn't make too many headlines.
Kate Moss and Johnny Depp
Johnny Depp and Kate Moss were quite an item for a hot minute. And by hit minute we mean about four years, between 1994 to 1998. In 2007, Johnny Depp was interviewed speaking fondly about Kate Moss, which would have made you think Moss and Depp had it going really well at the time.
Well, the truth is that it wasn't all that good. Their relationship came after Depp's love story with Winona Ryder, which became a huge story within the Hollywood tales and lasted for just over three years. All parties involved went on to have other high-profile relationships.
Cher and Tom Cruise
The iconic Cher can get away with almost anything. When she was a 38-year-old lady, she got away with dating a 22-year-old young man by the name of Tom Cruise. Now, we aren't really sure what they mean when they say "get away with" in this context. It's not like people (let alone people in Hollywood) get punished for a relationship with an age gap.
He was just taking his first footsteps in the Hollywood world, while she had already built her reputation as a successful singer. The two dated for a while, not turning their story into something great. They were busier smiling to the cameras than actually trying to make something work.
