    1. Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling

    How long they’ve been dating: Work brought them together romantically on the set of The Place Beyond the Pines during the summer of 2011. Since then, the Drive actor and his 38-year-old paramour have been inseparable, spotted everywhere from Paris to Disneyland.

    Love sound bites: Mendes told Marie Claire that Gosling was her dream co-star: “I have never felt so creatively satisfied on a film.”

    Fun fact: Hey, girl! Did you know that Mendes and Gosling made a “Funny or Die” spoof of “Twas the Night Before Christmas?” Check it out—Jim Carrey plays Santa! (Warning: NSFW.)

    Long-term potential: The couple almost never reveals anything about their relationship. However, there have been some telling signs. Back in June, Gosling took Mendes to his mom’s college graduation, creating a stir with students. While he was away in Thailand filming Only God Forgives, his girlfriend took care of his beloved dog, George.

    In a telling quote to the U.K. Times, Gosling said, “I’d like to be making babies but I’m not, so I’m making movies.” How does Mendes feel about getting hitched and having kids? When Marie Claire asked her during an interview, she said, “I don’t like talking about things that I want in the future because I feel by verbalizing such things, they won’t come true.” Only time will tell if she was just playing coy…

    2. Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher

    How long they’ve been dating: The couple worked together on That ‘70s Show 14 years ago, but they weren’t linked romantically until this past April. The Oz: The Great and Powerful actress, 29, and Kutcher, 34, haven’t exactly been shy with showing their affections. They’ve been photographed spoon-feeding each other gelato, stepping out in matching shirts (that say “Thank You For Loving Me”) and getting his-and-hers treatments at a foot spa (not all on the same day).

    Love sound bites: Kurtwood Smith, their former co-actor on ‘70s, is rooting for them. He revealed to E! Online that: “Maybe they should get married. We’ll all go to the wedding and that could be a reunion. It’ll be a reality show.” Perhaps his speculation isn’t that far-off: Kunis told Glamour she’d “Rather be in love and have a baby than have a movie.” (Has she been talking to Gosling?)

    Fun fact: Kunis’ first kiss was with Kutcher. “I was like, ‘Oh, he’s so cute, it’s the Calvin Klein model!’ Then I was like, ‘I have to kiss him?’ I was so nervous and uncomfortable. I had the biggest crush on him,” she told People.

    Long-term potential: According to reports, Kutcher and Demi Moore struggled with his wandering eye and her insecurities during their marriage. If Kutcher can remain faithful, then he might have a shot with Kunis, who seems to have more points in the “confidence” category than Moore. Recently crowned “The Sexiest Woman Alive” by Esquire, she’s being offered plum movie roles, so her star is rising just as fast as Kutcher’s, who will play Steve Jobs in a juicy new biopic.

    How long they’ve been dating: The couple dated from January through March; after a brief split in September, they’re back on again. The 34-year-old Avatar actress met the Hangover star, 37, while filming The Words in 2011.

    Love sound bites: At The Words film premiere, Cooper told reporters that Saldana brought so much to the film that it became “very romantic” and “much deeper.”

    Fun fact: The pair has kept a low profile since reuniting, but they were spotted going for a Thanksgiving Day walk with Gloria, Cooper’s mom. Wonder if she’s eager to see her son (whose ex list includes Renee Zellweger, Olivia Wilde, and Jennifer Lopez) settle down?

    3. Zoe Saldana and Bradley Cooper

    Long-term potential: With his piercing blue eyes and suave demeanor, Cooper’s made a living playing love-to-hate-em lotharios. But in real life, he’s matured since his 20’s, swearing off drugs and alcohol.

    Cooper’s been down the marriage road before (he and ex-wife Jennifer Esposito divorced after just four months), but it didn’t turn him off to matrimony for good. On Howard Stern’s Sirius XM show, he said: “Making any declarative statement [like that] is a joke.”

    Saldana’s also evolved in her ‘30s: “The pressure of wanting to please others dissipates more and more…There have been a lot of changes in my life over the past year,” she said at the Cosmopolitan for Latinas launch party.

    It’s no secret that the Blood Ties and Star Trek 2 beauty is eager to start a family. During an appearance on Lifetime’s The Conversation with Amanda de Cadenet, she said: “I’m Latin—we start young, honey! At 22, you’re like, ‘I just wanna [sic] hold something. You want a little critter.”

    How long they’ve been dating: Lopez and her choreographer beau celebrated their one-year anniversary this past October, tweeting sweet messages of congrats (Smart calls her his “gorgeous, kind, sweet, funny, ‘lil’ bear”). They officially stepped out as a couple just months after her messy split with actor-singer Marc Anthony.

    Love sound bites: During a Good Morning America appearance, the entertainers revealed it wasn’t love at first sight for either of them. “It was just very natural how it happened. There was nothing before, no flirting, nothing,” Smart said. During another GMA interview, Lopez revealed that despite being divorced three times, “For me, the biggest dream is the fairy tale. I will never give up on that dream.”

    Fun fact: The former American Idol judge (she’s appearing in the upcoming action film Parker) cast Smart as her dance partner for her racy music video “Dance Again,” where she blindfolds him. A week later, she bought him a truck for his 25th birthday (they share an 18-year age difference).

    Long-term potential: Whether they’re front row at the Chanel show or splashing each other around in the pool, Casper spends lots of QT with Emme and Max, Lopez’s four-year-old twins (who she refers to as her “coconuts”). In Style reports that Lopez’s number-one priority is being a good Mom, so we’re guessing that Dad potential is a major factor in whether or not she’ll get hitched again.

    Kiddos aside, Smart is happy to let his lady have the spotlight. “Sometimes, I tell her something, you know, give her notes. But at the end of the day, you know, it doesn’t matter what position is what, because she’s the boss,” he told ABC.

    How long they’ve been dating: They reportedly started dating back in February, when they were introduced by mutual friend and actress Busy Philipps (pictured above). Witnesses saw the 32-year-old Take This Waltz actress and the How I Met Your Mother actor, 32, cracking jokes during a four-hour date at The Chateau Marmont, in LA.

    Love sound bites: A source told People that Segel is “totally smitten” with Williams; “it’s like the first girl he’s ever been this way with.”

    Fun fact: The couple’s apartment in Red Hook, Brooklyn, was damaged by Hurricane Sandy, so they’ve been staying at the former brownstone Williams used to share with her late partner, Heath Ledger.

    Long-term potential: When Williams is busy shooting movies, Segel cares for her seven-year-old daughter, Matilda, which could be a sign that he’s ready to take on more responsibility in his life. At the premiere of his film The Five-Year-Engagement, he told reporters that “I hit my ‘30s and enough became enough. I’m ready to enter phase three. I put the puppets in a closet. I’m getting nice furniture.”

    Williams still grapples with the loss of Heath Ledger (she still wears a pixie cut, in remembrance of him), but hopefully there are happier days ahead of her. In an interview with People, she said that “I don’t really know what those first few years [of marriage] are like, but I hope they’re great.”

    How long they’ve been dating: Two-and-a-half years. Hough, 24, met Seacrest, 37, in 2007, when the Dancing with the Stars and American Idol sets were located across the hall from each other. The dancer was so nervous on their first date that she peppered him with questions like “Are you loyal?” and “Are you close to your family?”

    Love sound bites: Seacrest finds fun, unexpected ways to show his longtime love that he cares. Case in point: “I had picked out an outfit randomly [in a magazine], like ‘oh that’s cute’ and five months later, he had the whole outfit [purchased] in a [garment] bag. It was very sweet, very cute. He’s actually extremely romantic,” Hough told Giuliana Rancic at the Emmy's pre-show.

    Long-term potential: It takes a special lady to keep up with Seacrest, affectionately dubbed “The Hardest-Working Man in Hollywood.” (His most recent resume builder: He served as an NBC Olympics commentator this past summer.) The DWS alum’s acting career is heating up: She’s currently filming Safe Haven, a romantic drama by Nicholas Sparks. “We work hard, and it’s why we’re attracted to each other,” Hugh explained at a Samsung Galaxy Note II launch party.

    The couple psyched us out during an American Idol episode that aired in May. Seacrest told Hugh he had to ask her a serious question. He reached into his suit jacket to pull out a...piece of note paper. “”Will you…give this note I wrote to [Rock of Ages costar] Tom Cruise? I’m such a big fan—I loved him in Cocktail,” he said. When he pops the question again (for real), don’t expect him to televise the wedding—he told Life & Style that’s a no-go.

    7. Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis

    How long they’ve been dating: One year. They publicly stepped out as a couple when they attended a Kansas University Jayhawks game together.

    Love sound bites: During a monologues event in NYC, Wilde told the audience that she is “blissfully, hopelessly, wildly in love.” Sweet, right? But then, she said they have the stamina of Kenyan marathon runners when it comes to their intimate affairs (yikes). She later regretted the over-share, saying it was performance art that was taken out of context.
