EntertainmentCelebrities Aaron Carter and Hilary Duff, and more celebrity couples we wish would get back together By NINA RUGGIERO March 7, 2014 1:43 PM Print Share fbShare Tweet Email The year 2000 called: It wants its gossip back. Hilary Duff and Aaron Carter are making headlines-- yes, you read that right-- because the teen heartthrob of yesteryear has proclaimed his undying love for his former squeeze. As Lizzie McGuire would say, this is what dreams are made of. In a well-timed tweet, soon after Duff split from hockey player husband (and father of her almost-2-year-old son) Mike Comrie, Carter posted a present-day photo of her and wrote "Don't be that stupid douche that loses the love of your life forever..Like me..." Fans immediately went crazy, and who can blame them? This out-of-the-blue throwback transports us to a magical time when hair crimping was socially acceptable and pop stars were so wholesome and sweet they actually sang about candy. "I'll spend the rest of my life trying to better myself to get back to her," Carter continued. "I don't care what ANY of you think." Duff has not responded via social media, so there's no telling if this reunion has a shot, but that got us thinking... what other celebrity couples did we never quite get over? Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake Photo Credit: Lucy Nicholson/AFP/Getty Images Let's be honest, you knew you'd find these two here. From young love in the Mickey Mouse Club to super-stardom as pop music's royal couple, they had it all-- matching denim outfits included. Need we say more? The world would be a whole lot different if Brit and JT were still an item. Sigh. Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey Photo Credit: Getty Images / Frederick M. Brown She didn't know the difference between tuna and chicken, and he loved her anyway. And they were just sooo pretty. At least we'll always have "Newlyweds." Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams Photo Credit: Getty Images / Michael Buckner These two gave us hope that love as seen in "The Notebook" existed in real life... and then they stomped on our hearts and took it all away. Pass the tissues, please. Adam Brody and Rachel Bilson Photo Credit: Getty Images / Amanda Edwards Geeky guy lands the popular girl... this "O.C." connection was the dream romance of teenagers everywhere-- on and off screen. That's why we'll always hold a special place in our hearts for Seth Cohen and Summer Roberts.

Blake Lively and Penn Badgley Photo Credit: Getty Images / Kevin C. Cox Oh, you watched "Gossip Girl" and didn't want Serena and Dan to beat the odds in real life? What does it feel like to have no soul? Lauren Conrad and Brody Jenner Photo Credit: Getty Images / Michael Buckner This match made in "The Hills" heaven only lasted for a hot second, but hey, we can dream. Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr Photo Credit: Getty Images/ Stephen Lovekin OK fine, we're just thankful these two had the chance to reproduce. Jennifer Lopez and P.

Reese Witherspoon and Jake Gyllenhaal Photo Credit: Getty Images / Frazer Harrison Because looking at photos of Jake putting Reese in a bear hug was almost as cathartic as watching videos of golden retriever puppies cuddling on YouTube. Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt Photo Credit: Getty Images / Francois Guillot Before Brangelina and their six kids, there was just Brad and Jen, Hollywood's golden couple. Ah, simpler times. Demi Moore and Bruce Willis Photo Credit: Getty Images/AFP/Patrick Hertzog Ashton who? We know he's re-married, but we wish Demi could give Bruce another shot. He's been such a good sport through it all. Billy Joel and Christie Brinkley Photo Credit: Getty Images/AFP/Paul J. Richards Yes, the "Piano Man" has had three wives, but no one was like Christie. They've stayed friendly over the years, so you never know... By NINA RUGGIERO Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Comments We're revamping our Comments section. Learn more and share your input.
