Loribizz loves celebrity couples (good or bad matches), so we wasted no time reposting this wonderful article from yourtango.com that appeared on last week. Nicely done.
No matter how many times we’ve heard that opposites attract, we’re still slightly confused when a pair of stars from seemingly opposite ends of the celebrity universe combine.
Here are six examples of couples that we never would have pictured together.
1) Peaches Geldof and Eli Roth
Eli is an actor, screenwriter, director, producer, and animator who has been earning praise for his talent since he was a film student at NYU. Aside from being a columnist, Peaches’ list of accomplishments includes getting married in Vegas (and divorcing a year later), being one of the top 10 fashion icons of 2006 (according to Tattler) and winning the #53 spot on FHM’s countdown of the sexiest women in the world in 2007. Then there’s the fact that she turned 21 less than 2 months ago, which makes her 17 years his junior. We’re not saying that a large age difference is always insurmountable (10 Coolest Cougar/Cub Relationships), but in this case it seems a bit sketch-tastic. Celebrity Couples That We Wish Were A Joke
2) Avril Lavigne and Brody Jenner
She’s just a girl and he’s just a boy, but the attraction between this couple is anything but obvious. She’s an edgy rocker who’s making her mark on music and fashion. He, on the other hand, is best known for his time on a reality TV show and his famous father. It’ll be interesting to watch, but we wouldn’t start planning the wedding just yet.
3) Madonna and Jesus Luz
The Material Girl’s newest boy toy is a super-hot model and skilled DJ. He fits Madge’s pattern of the sexy younger man. Sure, we didn’t exactly predict this paring, but then again, we never guessed she would have been with any of her past paramours either. Madonna is the queen of reinvention, and she’s a tough woman to figure out. Still, we think this relationship might have a chance. 5 Reasons Jesus Luz Is Good For Madonna
4) Courteney Cox and David Arquette
These two seem to balance each other out. Cox has a reputation for being serious and Arquette is known for being a bit of a goofball. Despite their different personalities and a 7-year age gap, these two seem towork well together—both in business and as parents to their daughter Coco. Another thing the opposites have in common?

5) Abbie Cornish and Josh Hartnett
OK, we’re not really sure if they’re dating or not. If they are, though, we’d be surprised because this would be the first time that we’ve though of either one of them (individually) in years. New Couple Alert: Josh Hartnett And Abbie Cornish?
6) Yoko Ono and John Lennon
We think one of the reasons why Yoko is still vilified by many as the woman who broke up the Fab Four might be because nobody really got why they were together in the first place. We don’t like what we don’t understand, right? He was a British hippie and worldwide icon, and she was….who, exactly? Here are some facts (per Wikipedia) that might make the marriage more comprehensible. She is an artist—a musician like John might be attracted to her creativity—and she supports gay rights and AIDS outreach as well as peace in general. People may have been surprised by their union, but we think that in true Flower Child style, they proved that love knows no bounds. Despite differences in nationality, background, and career, these two had a strong connection.
