Like everyone in the 1980s’, all men wanted to be Rob Lowe, and all women wanted to date Rob Lowe. And Janice Dickinson is one woman who actually did that. 1988 was the year it all happened, though it only lasted a few months.
She was a stunning supermodel who escalated her career and later became one of the judges on “America’s Next Top Models,” in addition to being a successful businesswoman and author. Rob Lowe, on the other hand, is a loved actor, producer, and director, but the 1980s will always be remembered as his peak and pride decade.
Sandra Bullock and Matthew McConaughey
These two did a very good job of hiding their relationship. So much so, that by the time the tabloids realized they were an item, they had already broken up. Apparently, Bullock and McConaughey were together for almost two years and even got engaged secretly!
They met in 1996 and immediately felt the sparks while filming on the same set. For their own reasoning (they kept this a secret, too), they decided to go on their separate ways; however, they have remained close until today. They are very close friends and make it a point to share it with the world.
Arsenio Hall and Paula Abdul
"American Idol" judge Paula Abdul dated Arsenio Hall, who had his very own show. The two met on the set of a movie and lived hectic lives in the entertainment industry. They met while filming "Coming to America," which was a classic Eddie Murphy comedy, and became inseparable.
Even though they broke up, Arsenio mentions that he has only good memories of Paula. They stayed friends, and she even appeared on his show after they broke up. Abdul has since married twice (actor Emilio Estevez and fashion designer Brad Beckerman) but Hall has never married, though he does have one son.
Cher and Val Kilmer
Movie stars and musicians of the 1980s and 1990s', practically lived in the same bubble. They mixed with the same people, mingled at the same parties, and dated the same loved ones. Cher, who was at the peak of her career in those days, set her eyes on Val Kilmer, who later co-starred in "Top Gun" with Tom Cruise.
They were a hot item between 1982 and 1984 and then called it quits. Cher said that Kilmer was much younger than her, which was a big issue back in the day, and that older guys (or guys the same age as she was) just weren't interesting enough for her.
Michal Jackson and Brooke Shields
Unlike today, at the beginning of the 1980s, things were different, and the number of stars was limited. Not every artist that came up with a new song instantly became famous, whereas today, you don't need much to be recognized worldwide. Michal Jackson, at the time, was known and loved globally. As was Brooke Shields
He dated Brooke Shields for a while, but apparently, they weren't both aligned with how they wanted things to go. Jackson proposed a number of times; however, Shields tells a different story and has always claimed that they were no more than two good friends.
