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.
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.
Spike Jonze and Sofia Coppola
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.
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.
Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston
Possibly THE It Couple of the 90s (and yes, the early 2000s) and America's sweethearts were, of course, Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston. One of the most famous celeb couples in Hollywood history began in a rather ordinary way. The pair was set up on a date by mutual friends. The rest was pop-culture history.
The end of Brad and Jennifer's marriage marked the beginning of a tabloid tsunami that would last years of rumors and gossip surrounding the failed romance. The two re-ignited rekindled romance rumors when spotted being very supportive of one another during the 2021 awards season.
