JOAQUIN PHOENIX & ROONEY MARA
Ladies and gentlemen, we give you Hollywood's most critically acclaimed couple. The Oscar nominees quietly took their romance public in May 2017, when they attended the closing night of the Cannes Film Festival together, and even left the awards ceremony holding hands. Rumors about the pair first began swirling back in January, when Page Six reported that the actors had grown close on the set of their biblical epic Mary Magdalene, which they were filming in Italy. "They seem a totally natural and easy couple," a source tells PEOPLE.
LIAM PAYNE & CHERYL
Seven years after they met — the first time that Payne auditioned for The X Factor — the former One Direction star went public with his relationship with the British pop star.

The pair welcomed son Bear in April.
JENNIFER LAWRENCE & DARREN ARONOFSKY
Age is nothing but a number for these two! JLaw first began dating Aronofsky after he directed her in the upcoming film Mother!, and things got serious quickly, with the two spotted out on several romantic dates and low-key strolls around New York City. “They are very sweet together and seem happy,” a source told PEOPLE in March. “They hold hands. They keep to themselves and don’t seem to want a lot of attention.”
CAMERON DIAZ & BENJI MADDEN
While fans might have been shocked by the Good Charlotte rocker and actress' whirlwind romance — they started dating in May 2014, were engaged a few months later, and married in January 2015 — the two have recently started opening up about what a good match they really are. "He’s just my partner in life, in everything." Diaz gushed in June 2017. "[We] are totally two peas in a pod. We’re both just weird enough for each other. He’s my perfect little weirdo and I’m his perfect little weirdo."
DAVID SPADE & NAYA RIVERA
News of their relationship might have broken in early April but it was no prank — according to E!

Though neither has commented publicly on their status, they've since been spotted out on dinner dates.
ELON MUSK & AMBER HEARD
The billionaire tech mogul was first rumored to be dating the Australian actress last year, in the middle of both of their respective divorces, but it wasn't until April 2017 that they finally confirmed their relationship by stepping out at a wildlife sanctuary in Gold Coast, Australia. “They are getting more serious,” a source close to the couple revealed to PEOPLE. “It’s definitely not a casual relationship. That’s not Elon. He doesn’t do anything casually.”
MARY-KATE OLSEN & OLIVIER SARKOZY
Child star turned fashion mogul Olsen tied the knot with her much-older beau in November 2015 after three years of dating. Though she's been infamously private about the relationship, Olsen did give a little bit of insight into her marriage in March 2017, telling Net-A-Porter's The Edit, “We’re lucky [working hard] comes quite naturally for us. We don’t need so much time to sit and think and ponder. But then I have a husband, two stepkids and a life; I have to go home and cook dinner. I ride horses on the weekends. You find the thing that helps you relax and if you don’t have it, you have to look for it."
