1 JENNIFER ANISTON & BRAD PITT
Who doesn’t love this “absolutely adorable” couple? Although “it’s rather odd how much they look alike sometimes,” with their “strong, square jaws,” “there is no way their children could be anything but beautiful.” Always affectionate in public, “they make us believe that they are truly in love and that they share a life of happiness.” Fitting together “like a key and a lock,” “they seem normal romantic, not too fluffy, not too separate, just right.” Their prognosis is excellent. “If they stay yummy, they will last.”

2 REESE WITHERSPOON & RYAN PHILLIPPE
Marriage in their 20s and young parenthood (baby No. 2 is due next fall) are pluses for this “young, fresh and beautiful,” “all-American” “prom queen and king.” Their willingness to undergo couples counseling shows “true commitment.” “Nice,” “real” and “grounded,” they go so “well together” that “they’re the type of couple that starts looking like one another.” The long-term odds are good “as long as Ryan is secure with his wife’s career.”

3 MADONNA & GUY RITCHIE

Following a four-year marriage to Sean Penn, a daughter with personal trainer Carlos Leon and 11 years of playing the field, Madonna has settled down in Dorset, England, and L.A. with the 10-years-younger Ritchie and “adjusted every part of her life around his.” The parents of 2-year-old Rocco look “fine” together stepping out on both sides of the Atlantic. With obvious devotion to their children as well as deep interest in each other’s careers, biking and the Kabbalah, they seem “sure” to last.

4 WILL SMITH & JADA PINKETT SMITH

Their “mutual admiration” keeps them “in love” and “in tune” with each other. Always looking “well-coordinated” and exhibiting “lots of body contact,” they “seem knit together.” Dedicated to their children, they “balance their stardom and their family life.” Although Jada “seems to be the boss,” Will “praises the ground she walks on.” Their love “shines through their eyes and their smiles.” Like “two puzzle pieces who fit,” they are “everything good about Hollywood.” Their “chemistry” and “commitment” make them “the Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward of the new millennium.”

5 JENNIFER LOPEZ & BEN AFFLECK
“Hot, hot, hot and hot” is the word on this “beautiful couple.” They seem “on fire for each other” and “head-over-heels” in love. Their “lust,” “passion” and “lots of PDAs” make for a “whirlwind romance that is very thrilling.” Beneath the surface, the merger of “two cultures” and “similar goals” makes them “ideal” for each other. Since beginning their relationship, “she has a glow about her” and “Ben has started to look, dress and act better.” They “accessorize each other well” and “love to spend money on each other.” But they eventually could “smother each other” with too much togetherness.

6 TIM McGRAW & FAITH HILL
After six years of marriage and three daughters, this “amazing” couple seem “as if they are just one heart with two bodies.” They are “very hot together, but also very family oriented—a perfect combination.” Still “melting at the sight of each other,” they appear “in sync” and “solid as a rock.”

7 GWEN STEFANI & GAVIN ROSSDALE

These two “sweet” rock stars add up to “sugar and sugar—everything nice.” Their six years together before last year’s wedding “says a lot about their relationship” and their “true bond.” The “well-suited” couple are “not in it for the attention, they’re in it for the love.” Now, with “constant smiles on their faces,” they are “in newlywed heaven.”

8 SARAH MICHELLE GELLAR & FREDDIE PRINZE JR.

She’s 26, he’s 27, but they seem “grounded,” “respectful of each other” and “very mature for their age.” While it doesn’t hurt that they are “very, very cute” and have “great style,” it is their “good-flowing romance level” and “strong foundation” that make them “soulmates.” Always “affectionate,” they “make each other happy” and “have a young, spiritual love.”

9 SARAH JESSICA PARKER & MATTHEW BRODERICK

“Classy” and “true to themselves,” they are “the picture-perfect New York couple.” Clearly “in step with one another” and “supportive of each other,” they appear “comfortable,” “content” and “deeply connected.” With “genuine care and affection between the two of them,” they “complement each other” and “seem like best friends.” Importantly, they “understand and accept each other” and “relish one another’s accomplishments.” Theirs is a “deep love” that “has roots.” Their future looks bright. “Now that they have a baby, life will only get better.”

10 MICHAEL DOUGLAS & CATHERINE ZETA-JONES
Although he is 25 years her senior, “age doesn’t matter” for this “glamorous” twosome. Michael is “charming,” Catherine is “beautiful,” and “she brings out the youth in him.” Together they are “dynamite,” “sophisticated,” “intelligent,” “polished” and “confident.” They have “built a wonderful life” and appear to be “the happiest couple on earth.”
