CAMILA CABELLO AND SHAWN MENDES

Back in 2014, Camila Cabello was still with Fifth Harmony and Shawn Mendes was rising in the business. They became close friends after touring together, and fans started to “ship” them. However, they both denied the rumors, stating that they were just friends. The way they looked at each other back – as the picture shows – it’s no wonder that people wanted them to date. Well, everyone’s wish eventually came true in 2019 when their relationship was made public.

NICOLE KIDMAN AND HUGH JACKMAN

Kidman and Jackman worked together in the film ‘Australia’ and when they attended the premiere in Sydney back in 2008, they almost shared a kiss.

LADY GAGA AND BRADLEY COOPER

This might have been one of the best moments of the Oscars 2019, as Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga took the stage to perform their song ‘Shallow’ for their film ‘A Star is Born’.

STEVE HARVEY AND MISS COLOMBIA

Steve Harvey has already hosted several Miss Universe pageants, but in 2015, he was doing it for the time.

ZAC EFRON AND ANNA KENDRICK

JOHN TRAVOLTA AND SCARLETT JOHANSSON

Most people thought it was awkward, but the actress clarified that it was a completely sweet and platonic encounter.

DAKOTA JOHNSON AND JON HAMM

People have seen Dakota Johnson looking at many actors meaningfully, but that might just be because she is a fan of them herself.

This is moment is almost hilarious, and it almost seems like Ariana Grande is avoiding Elsa Hosk’s arm, but that’s the backup dancer’s arm. The singer was really avoiding the Victoria’s Secret Angel’s huge wing. Grande later tweeted, "A Victoria's Secret angel accidentally smacked me in the face with her wings and it was awesome.” Her expression is absolutely comical as originally they were just walking together.

HARRY STYLES AND LOUIS TOMLINSON

While fans of One Direction have “shipped” the members in several ways for many years, no “ship” is more popular than these two. Of course, everyone knows the girls that they have dated over the years, but that never stopped anyone from interpreting their looks. Some people were convinced that it was true, and even the HBO’s ‘Euphoria’ had an animated segment on the “ship”.
