It is no surprise that this romantic story took its first steps on set. It happened to many stars, and it happened to Christian Slater and Winona Ryder too. Slater and Ryder starred together in the 1988 movie “Heathers” and had a massive crush on one another, so it’s a good thing they played a couple.
They announced publicly that they were an item, even though their relationship didn’t last too long. Winona Ryder said that Slater was just another story to add to her relationship book. Slater, however, admits that Winona was the love of his life and the woman he always wanted.
Richard Gere and Cindy Crawford
In 1987, Richard Gere already had a resume of women he had dated, which listed, amongst others, Kim Basinger, Priscilla Presley, and a few other big names. He was the stud to end all studs. Stunning Cindy Crawford was only in her early twenties when she met Mr. Gere, which led to the two marrying in 1991.
Crawford didn't want to waste her precious twenties with the silver fox and decided to untie the knot. She was one of the hottest women alive during the 1990s, and he was, and still remains, a true charmer any woman would love to have.
Kim Basinger and Prince
The movie "Batman," which was screened in 1989, was where it all began for Kim Basinger and musician Prince. Basinger starred in the movie, while Prince was responsible for the amazing soundtrack. Kim Basinger was interviewed once, and she said very freely that the time with Prince was very meaningful for her, as all moments were back then.
She was a free spirit who did whatever was on her mind, and judging by Prince's public image, he was very similar to her in that respect. Apparently, dating Prince was right up her alley. The two even worked together on music projects!
Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe
Where would we be without the ultimate '90s rollercoaster romance between Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillipe? The pair met when Ryan crashed Reese's birthday party. He turned out to be a very welcomed uninvited guest!
In 1999 they went on to star as doomed lovers in the cult classic "Cruel Intentions" and got hitched a few months later. After rumors and suspicions of Ryan allegedly playing around with other women, Phillipe and Witherspoon called it quits. They have two children together — a daughter named Ava and a son named Deacon, who they continue to happily co-parent to this day.
Brooke Sheilds and Liam Neeson
Despite their 13-year age gap, Brooke Sheilds and Liam Neeson hit it off in late 1991. Their love connection was so intense that Neeson popped the question after only 3 months of dating! However, shortly after the proposal, Liam flew home to deal with his home flooding.
Brooke apparently patiently waited to hear from her fiance but never did. Yep, he ghosted her! Even Brooke Shields can get ghosted, apparently. No one is safe anymore. A few months later, when he got his senses back, he came crawling back to her and re-proposed, to which Sheilds answered, "NO." Go, Brooke!
