Celebrity couples seem to come and go, and many times these romantic flings never seem to last. Hollywood can often be a breeding ground for random and strange couplings, and some of those pairs have downright baffled us! From random dates to long term relationships, here's a list of some of the most wild and odd celebrity couples.

Cher & Tom Cruise

Music icon Cher and global film star Tom Cruise had a brief fling in 1985, long before the actor became a Hollywood hunk. Cher had revealed to Andy Cohen's on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live that Cruise, "was in the Top 5" for her list of best lovers. The unlikely pair met in 1985 at Madonna and Sean Penn's wedding, and once again at an event focusing on dyslexia. Cher would go on to recall, "A bunch of people who were dyslexic were invited to the White House, and Tom and I are both dyslexic. We didn't go out till way later, but there definitely was a connection there."

Did You Know? Tom Cruise was 16 years Cher's junior when the pair dated in 1985; Cruise was born in 1962 and Cher in 1946.

Winona Ryder & Matt Damon

At the end of the 90s, actress Winona Ryder was a beloved film star with a very successful resume. Matt Damon was an up-and-coming actor who was on the cusp of major stardom with his soon-to-be-released Oscar winning film, Good Will Hunting. The couple were introduced at a New Year's Eve party in 1997, by their (then) best friends Gwyneth Paltrow and Ben Affleck (the two were also dating at the time). The pair kept their romance very low profile, arriving to award shows and events separately. They dated for two years before calling it quits, and while Ryder and Damon acknowledge their past romance, they refuse to discuss it.

Did You Know? Despite attempting to keep their relationship out of the public eye, the two were declared "Hollywood's It Couple" by People Magazine in 1999.

Kim Kardashian & Nick Lachey

An arguably random and strange romance, reality star and media mogul Kim Kardashian briefly dated 98 Degrees member Nick Lachey in 2006, following his split from Jessica Simpson. The "relationship" was so short-lived it only lasted one week. Lachey has since alleged that Kardashian used their brief romance for publicity and fame. He once told The Huffington Post, "Let's just say this: We went to a movie. No one followed us there. Somehow, mysteriously, when we left, there were 30 photographers waiting outside. There are certain ways to play this game, and some people play it well."

Did You Know? While it may not have been a match made in Hollywood heaven, both Lachey and Kardashian have found happiness in their love lives. Lachey is married to Vanessa Minnillo and Kardashian to rapper Kanye West.

Mila Kunis & Macaulay Culkin

The actors began their 8-year-romance back in 2002, while Kunis was still starring on That 70's Show and Culkin was at the height of his fame due to successful films including Uncle Buck (1989) and the Home Alone (1990) series. The duo kept their relationship private, and ultimately ended things in 2011. In an interview with Howard Stern, the actress expressed, "He was huge. You couldn't walk down the street with him. He always had this weird attraction, like fans just screamed when they saw him...Fans responded in a very abnormal way to him."

Did You Know? Kunis is now married to fellow-actor Ashton Kutcher, whom she starred with on That 70's Show. Kutcher even gave Kunis her first kiss on the set of the show!

Drew Barrymore & Tom Green

Back in 2001, the wild and outrageous MTV talk show host Tom Green shocked everyone when he married Hollywood sweetheart Drew Barrymore. The duo had appeared together in the 2000 blockbuster Charlie's Angels. Unfortunately, the marriage between the Canadian comedian and actress only lasted nine months. Green has since called the short-lived relationship a "crazy, whirlwind of a time." He would also say, "I haven't talked to her in many, many years. I'm glad she's doing great. I'm really happy she's doing good."

Did You Know? In 2001, the then-couple escaped uninjured when a fire badly damaged Barrymore's home. The pair were able to escape with the aid of their dog, who woke them up and alerted them to the fire.
