It seems that the band Sonic Youth was a hotspot for romance. Not only did former flames Thurston Moore and Kim Gordon form the band but directors Spike Jonze and Sofia Coppola met on the set of Sonic Youth’s music video “100%.”
What was first a formidable friendship soon blossomed into a romance that led the two to say their vows at Sofia’s famous father’s (Francis Ford Coppola’s) vineyard in 1999. Sadly, Coppola and Jonze sadly split up a few years later. Some have even speculated that Sofia’s film “Lost in Translation” drew inspiration from her strained relationship with Jonze.
Salma Hayek and Ed Norton
There are so many Hollywood couples who met while working together on one set or another. But apparently, there are more ways for celebrities to be introduced to each other. Who needs Cupid when you have a chiropractor? Yup, Hollywood royalty Selma Hayek and Edward Norton met through their mutual chiropractor in 1999!
Turns out he or she really had the couple's backs...Ha Ha Ha. The private pair dated for a few years until parting ways in 2003. While the cause of the split has never come to light, Hayek and Norton still seem amicable, even attending each other's weddings.
Thurston Moore and Kim Gordon
Thurston Moore and Kim Gordon were the ultimate romantic Rock and Roll royalty. The two musicians met, fell in love, and formed the iconic band Sonic Youth back in 1981. Moore and Gordon even tied the knot in 1984 making them the coolest married couple in the music industry at the time.
Unlike a love song, the rockers' relationship untimely turned very sour. It turned out that Thurston was secretly seeing his book editor Eva Pinz. Kim discovered the truth when she noticed suspicious texts on Thurston's phone. Sonic Youth imploded and the couple's relationship ended in a messy divorce.
Carson Daly and Jennifer Love Hewitt
If you were a TRL-loving teen, then you know all about the iconic relationship between MTV star Carson Daly and 90's actress Jennifer Love Hewitt, star of "I Know What You Did Last Summer." The two got together in 1998 and were so loved up that Daly went and got a tattoo of Jenniffer on his leg! Talk about a commitment.
As we all know, relationship tattoos often jinx a relationship. Carson and Jennifer called it quits. While the two remain good friends, Carson was shocked to discover the news of his break-up from "E! News" and not from Jennifer directly.
Fiona Apple and Paul Thomas Anderson
In 1997, songstress and indie music princess Fiona Apple and Director Paul Thomas Anderson were regarded as the ultimate 90s power couple. Not only was the pair a love match, but they collaborated on various projects together. Fiona lent her musical talent to Paul's film "Magnolia," while Paul directed four of Fiona's music videos.
What an idyllic portrait of the life of a couple of artists! Unfortunately, after four years, the relationship fizzled out. Fiona has since spoken out about the high pedestal the media put the relationship on and has revealed that the relationship had many negative and toxic elements.
