5 Kaley Cuoco and Johnny Galecki
On the hit television sitcom “Big Bang Theory,” Penny and Leonard, played by Cuoco and Galecki, are truly a mismatched couple. She, a stunning waitress-actress, and he, a nerdy physicist working at a university, don’t quite fit the picture of a couple that meshes well. In real life though, Galecki really did get the girl. Their on-again, off-again relationship behind the scenes of the show was hidden as a secret for years. Apparently their on-camera chemistry actually has some true emotion behind it at times.
4 Carmen Electra and Dennis Rodman
Carmen Electra is a bombshell beauty who was oddly enough attracted to flamboyantly outspoken NBA star Dennis Rodman. After a reported drunken night in Vegas, the two were so head over heels for one another, they booked it to the nearest quickie wedding chapel. Shockingly, their marriage lasted for only a week and a half. It was unclear who wore the pants in the relationship; after all, Rodman wore a wedding dress to his book signing in 1996.
3 Angelina Jolie and Billy Bob Thornton
Maybe that grungy tattooed “I haven’t showered in days” look really does get the girl. Angelina Jolie was drawn to Hollywood’s bad boy, Billy Bob Thornton. The duo didn’t seem to have much in common though, other than an obsession with tattoos and blood-vial necklaces. After mere weeks of dating, Jolie and Thornton tied the knot in—surprise!—Las Vegas. Wedded bliss lasted for a full two years though. That might be some kind of record for a celebrity Vegas wedding.
2 Britney Spears and Kevin Federline
Britney Spears is another Hollywood hottie who fell for one of her backup dancers. Spears and Kevin Federline—more commonly known as K-Fed—wore matching wife-beater tanks, drank cheap beer out of cans and fell madly in love in the process. Just like that, Spears’ reputation as America’s sweetheart was tarnished. The two lovebirds married in the summer of 2004. Sadly, after two kids and two years of marriage, the mismatched pair called it quits and went their separate ways.
1 Jennifer Lopez and Casper Smart
Jennifer Lopez is surely one of the most recognized people in the world. J.Lo’s got it all: a killer body, an endless bank account, a perfectly bronzed tan and dimples deep enough to melt a man’s heart. Clearly she could have any guy she wants. But in the fall of 2011, Lopez decided she wanted the average Joe and hooked up with Casper Smart—one of her backup dancers. The couple seems to be going strong in 2013, giving hope to all the average guys worldwide.
