While the public loves to see their favorite celebrities in their finest wears on the red carpet, there is something a bit more appealing in seeing them in a more natural state. Photographers are constantly trying to nab the best photos of celebrities while they're out and about in their daily lives but it's the pictures of celebrity couples that really seem to captivate the interest of the general public. People love seeing two celebrities embark on a romantic relationship and there is always speculation on whether or not the two will head down the aisle or whether or not they will have children together.
While catching them out on dates at Hollywood hotspots are definitely appealing, it's seeing them out on a vacation that really seems to make headlines. Celebrity couples are known for a bit of extravagance when it comes to their vacations and people love seeing them travel around the world. Although there are certainly some travel photos that have depicted celebrity couples in a great light, there have also been quite a few celebrity couples that will undoubtedly regret their travel photos. From celebrities that have broken up in the spotlight to celebrity couples that have found themselves in a bit of hot water while traveling, it's interesting to see the trips that may have been a bit of a mistake. Check out our list of the 15 pictures of celebrity couples cozying up on vacation and the 10 that should have stayed home and see how many of them have already broken up.
25 Paris Hilton And Chris Zylka
Paris Hilton may have started out as a socialite that was constantly seen at Hollywood hotspots, her appearance on reality television and her publicized personal life thrust her into celebrity status. Television audiences loved seeing her on The Simple Life and she even starred on the big screen a few times. While she's no longer seen on television, that doesn't mean that she's stopped living the celebrity lifestyle. She makes a substantial amount of income through her DJ events, personal appearances and product endorsements. She's often seen jet-setting around the world, so she's no stranger to lavish vacations. Yet, there was one particular vacation that stood out amongst the others. In January 2018, Hilton went on a skiing trip in Aspen, Colorado with her then-boyfriend, Chris Zylka. It was during this vacation that Zylka proposed. Hilton was quoted by People as saying, "I am so excited to be engaged to the love of my life and my best friend."
24 Jessica Biel And Justin Timberlake
When Justin Timberlake began dating Jessica Biel, people didn't quite know what to make of it. Timberlake had previously had a hugely publicized romantic relationship with the fellow pop singer, Britney Spear. While he later began dating a string of other famous women, it was Jessica Biel that wound up winning his heart. The two of them were married in 2012 and there were some that saw their relationship as a bit mismatched. While he was the loud and outspoken one, she seemed to take the backburner in both her professional life and out in the public eye. Yet, they've proven that opposites may seem to be a great match since the two of them are still happily married and have a growing family. In September 2018, both of them shared photos from their European vacation. Timberlake captioned one photo, "If that pic doesn't say 'City Of Love' then I'm out."
23 Should Have Stayed Home: Joe Jonas And Sophie Turner
When it was revealed that Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas had embarked on a romantic relationship, it seemed like the public was quite skeptical about whether or not it would last. The world had already seen so many young celebrity couples that have been depicted as on-again/off-again in their relationship status and there were many people that started thinking of themselves as jaded towards true love in young Hollywood. This particular couple was seen in April 2018, having a bit of fun at Disneyland. Yet, they were constantly hounded by photographers and it caused the public to dissect every single photo of them, while they were trying to have a bit of fun and quality time. Perhaps this highly publicized location wasn't the best choice for this celebrity couple.
22 Kelly Clarkson And Brandon Blackstock
When Kelly Clarkson was first introduced to the world as a reality singing competition contestant, the world could see that she was hugely talented. Each week showed off her incredible range in the various genre challenges and it appeared that she could sing anything. It didn't come as a surprise that she wound up winning as the very first winner of the series and she ultimately became one of the best known for the entire series. While she initially started out as a pop artist, it was evident that she leaned towards country music due to her storytelling abilities and Texas roots. She wound up marrying the son of country superstar, Reba McEntire, and the two of them have been happily married since 2013. In February 2013, Clarkson and Brandon Blackstock vacationed in Hawaii on Valentine's Day and the world couldn't get enough of seeing their love blossom.
21 Kim Kardashian And Kanye West
The romance between Kim Kardashian and Kanye West has played out in front of the cameras because of the reality television series, Keeping Up with the Kardashians, as well as the spin-off shows. There have been numerous occasions when both of them were seen traveling around the world, whether it was Kim going to one of Kanye's concerts or one of their numerous outings for an event in the fashion world. In 2013, the couple was seen in Rio De Janeiro and they stood with the most well-known statue in Brazil. This was early on in their relationship but it was quite endearing to see them posing like regular tourists and enjoying a bit of fun and culture for themselves.
20 Should Have Stayed Home: Selena Gomez And The Weeknd
When Selena Gomez and The Weeknd were first spotted together in a compromising photograph, there seemed to be immediate backlash regarding the two of them starting a romantic relationship. He had previously dated the model, Bella Hadid, and it was known that Gomez and Hadid were considered friends and ran around the same group of girls in the entertainment industry. It wasn't a good look that Gomez would break girl code but that didn't stop her from a series of hugely publicized outings. This particular photo was taken at the 2017 Coachella Music Festival in California but it wasn't long after that the two split. This particular outing may not have been the best decision for either of them since their relationship didn't last very long.
19 Emily Blunt And John Krasinski
There have been a number of different romantic relationships that have played out in the limelight over the years but there have been a handful of them that have really captivated the world. When John Krasinski was first thought of as a hugely popular television actor, it was his role on The Office that won over fans. Yet, his success as a television actor didn't seem to compare to the Oscar success of Emily Blunt. Despite the fact that it seemed like they weren't on par with one another, the world seemed to fall in love with their romance. This particular photo was taken in 2017 when the couple traveled to Italy and partook in some water sport activities, while having some quality family time.
18 Will Smith And Jada Pinkett Smith
When Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith started to date, the public couldn't get enough of their love. Seeing them together on the television series, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, the public definitely saw how amazing their chemistry was on the small screen. When the two were married in 1997, it seemed like they had really found their perfect match. While other Hollywood marriages were ending in bitter divorces, Will and Jada remained happily married and even had two children together. With the two of them appearing like they had the secret to a successful marriage, it's not surprising that they've been interviewed on it quite frequently over the years. The two have shared a number of vacation photos throughout their time together and this is one that's a huge favorite. Both of them seem to be enjoying the warm weather and it's definitely comical to see the completely clean Popsicle stick.
17 Should Have Stayed Home: Kit Harington And Rose Leslie
Rose Leslie is an actress that has had a huge amount of success through various roles on both the small and big screen. While some people still remember her for her role on the hugely successful series, Downton Abbey, it was her casting on Game of Thrones that really seemed to grab the attention of the world. This was the role that led her to act alongside Kit Harington and the public was thrilled to see them start a romantic relationship outside of the series. There was quite a lot of attention thrust onto their relationship and they definitely seemed to encounter their fair share of photographers whenever they were out together. This particular photo was taken during their trip to Greece in 2017 and it didn't seem like the pair was happy about being hounded by the paparazzi.
16 Zayn Malik And Gigi Hadid
With Gigi Hadid being one of the fashion industries most successful young models, it's not surprising that she would have her pick of a number of celebrity suitors. When she started dating the former One Direction member, Zayn Malik, the world really took to their love. In April 2016, the couple took a vacation to Naples and photographs of their trip were taken by the famed photographer, Mario Testino. Each of the photos were published by Vogue, complete with details on what they're wearing in case people would like to emulate their looks. The photos could be seen in the May issue of Vogue and each photo showcased an ultra-romantic pose, from frolicking together down the street to kissing on the hotel balcony. With the photos being received so well, it's not surprising that the two of them were happy to vacation together.
15 Should Have Stayed Home: Justin Bieber And Sahara Ray
When Justin Bieber was first introduced to the world, he was seen as a hugely talented singer and musician that was posting videos in order to get picked up as a budding star. His rise to fame as a young pop star eventually changed as he grew up in front of the public eye. People became extremely interested to know more about his personal life and it seemed like there was a point when the public cared more about his romantic relationships than the music he was releasing. This particular photo was taken while on a trip to Hawaii with the model, Sahara Ray. It was during this trip that photographers actually caught him swimming without trunks and it became a huge news story around the world.
14 Miley Cyrus And Liam Hemsworth
When Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth first started their romantic relationship, the public didn't quite know how to take it. Miley Cyrus had started to embark on "Miley: The Movement," and some of her over-the-top antics seemed completely different from the low-key lifestyle of the Australian actor, Liam Hemsworth. While their relationship went through some rocky patches, the two were ultimately married in 2016. It seems like his low-key character has had a positive influence on Miley since she has drastically changed her style since being with him. The two were caught on vacation at Tybee Island in Georgia in October 2017 and people couldn't help but see how happy they looked while partaking in some sport activities on the water. While it wasn't a professional photoshoot, it definitely looked like they had fun.
13 Chrissy Teigen And John Legend
There are some Hollywood couples that are seen as quite forgettable in the minds of the public but there are others that seem to blossom after uniting. Prior to marrying the soulful R&B singer, John Legend, Chrissy Teigen had already made a name for herself in the modeling world. Yet, her union with John Legend really helped to improve her standing in the public eye. He famously wrote the love song, "All Of Me," for his wife and even showcased her in the music video. She began appearing as a television personality and really showcased her quirky personality for all the world to see. When the couple took a vacation to Naples in 2015, the public loved seeing the photos they shared. Perhaps the favorite was the one that involved the couple indulging in some authentic pizza.
12 Kristen Bell And Dax Shepard
When it was revealed that Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard were involved in a romantic relationship, there were some people that seemed puzzled by their union. Bell is seen as one of Hollywood's most beautiful actresses and she's even portrayed a Disney princess in the animated film, Frozen. Dax Shepard was seen as a bit of a clown with his over-the-top antics on television and it didn't seem immediately evident that the two of them would have a great deal of chemistry in a romantic relationship. Yet, that eventually changed and it wasn't long before the world began to see them as relationship goals through their hugely popular Samsung commercials. Their trip to Africa became a huge hit and people loved seeing their hilarious spoof video.
11 Ellen DeGeneres And Portia De Rossi
When it was revealed that Portia de Rossi was dating Ellen DeGeneres, there were some people that seemed completely puzzled. She was previously known for her role on Ally McBeal but there wasn't much talk about her romantic relationships and people were surprised to learn that she would have a romance with a woman. Yet, their love story has played out in front of the cameras and there was even a special that featured their over-the-top wedding. The two have been in the limelight for quite some time and they seem to be living their best life. This particular photo was taken in 2015, when the couple went on a vacation to St Barts in order to celebrate Christmas together in an exotic and beautiful location.
10 David And Victoria Beckham
When David and Victoria Beckham first began their romantic relationship, no one could have guessed whether or not the two of them would be able to keep their union together. So many other Hollywood couples have split during the time of their union but it seems like these two have the secret to making things work in the entertainment industry. They are thought of as one of Hollywood's most beloved couples and the public has loved seeing their family grow in front of the cameras. While there has been a lot of focus on their children in recent years, that doesn't mean that their love for each other has diminished. This particular photo was taken when David went to visit Victoria during her fall-winter presentation for her clothing line and it's obvious that he's still in full support of his wife.
9 Lauren Conrad And William Tell
When Lauren Conrad was first introduced to the world through the reality television series, Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County, people really seemed to root for her to finally find love. She ultimately received a spin-off reality series and television audiences continued to root for her to finally meet her Prince Charming on The Hills. While they were never able to see her finally find love on the show, that doesn't mean that she didn't get her "happily ever after" moment. In 2014, Conrad married William Tell in California and this is the photo that they released to the world to celebrate their second anniversary in 2016. People loved seeing them sip their fruity drinks and the Hawaiian shirts were the picture touch to complete the photo.
8 Nicole Kidman And Keith Urban
When the public discovered that the marriage of Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman had come to an end, people started questioning whether or not true love could exist in Hollywood. Yet, it seemed like all of those doubts were set aside when she married Keith Urban in 2006. The fact that they both hailed from Australia showed that they inevitably had a lot in common and most likely had a similar story in their rise to fame. The two of them have continued to grow their family together and have been on numerous talk shows to talk about the secrets of remaining happily married. In December 2016, the couple was spotted vacationing in Sydney, Australia alongside their kids. Not only did they look happy to spend time together as a family but they really seemed to be enjoying their beach getaway.
7 Tom Hanks And Rita Wilson
There aren't many Hollywood couples that have managed to stand the test of time, which makes it even more heartwarming that Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson have been able to make it work in the entertainment industry. The two were married in 1988 and the public remembers seeing them in the same film back in Sleepless in Seattle. While other Hollywood couples have come and gone throughout the time that Hanks has been married to Wilson, it seems like they have a hidden secret in keeping their love alive. In February 2016, the couple decided to spend Valentine's Day together by taking a vacation. Wilson posted a photo during their trip and captioned it, 28 years with my Valentine." When Hanks was interviewed by Oprah Winfrey and was asked whether she was his best friend, he responded, "Yes, in addition to being my lover. And it has been that way from the very beginning. We laugh just as much now at two in the morning as we always have. And we fight less and less."
6 Should Have Stayed Home: Kourtney Kardashian And Younes Bendjima
When Kourtney Kardashian was first introduced to the world, she was seen as just one of Kim Kardashian's sisters and her romantic relationship with Scott Disick was the majority of her storyline on Keeping Up with the Kardashians. After starting a family together and having numerous arguments play out in front of the cameras, the two ultimately split but continued to try and co-parent together. When Kourtney began her relationship with Younes Bendjima, all of the news seemed quite positive because the public saw her as having a new lease on life and ultimately finding happiness with a younger man. Yet, news of their split has caused many people to look back on their happy travel photos and think that it may have been a mistake to introduce him to her children and plaster his face all over the tabloids.
5 Should Have Stayed Home: Ryan Reynolds And Blake Lively
When Taylor Swift was first introduced to the world, she was seen as a young country star that was hugely talented as a songwriter and guitarist. Yet, her persona definitely started to evolve over the years and it wasn't long before she was seen as a pop artist with quite an extensive history in regards to her romantic life. Swift often tried to get in on the joke with songs like, "Blank Space" and "Shake It Off." This particular photo was taken in 2016, whilst Swift hosted a Fourth of July party. She was dating the actor, Tom Hiddleston, at the time and there were a number of other celebrities in attendance at the party. Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively were shown in this particular photo and people instantly remarked on how uncomfortable he looked in the photo.
4 Should Have Stayed Home: Channing Tatum And Jenna Dewan
With Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan seeming to have an amazing marriage in the entertainment industry, it was a huge surprise when the two of them announced that they would be separating after nine years of marriage. People couldn't help but want to look back at some of their outings together as a married couple and try and decipher a reason why the two of them would want to end their marriage, after so many years of seeming marital bliss. Yet, this is a photo that really seems to show the world something since it was taken during a vacation where they should have been quite happy and spending quality time together. However, it doesn't exactly show them to be in the best mind frame and it doesn't show them in a flattering light.
3 Should Have Stayed Home: Brooklyn Beckham And Chloë Grace Moretz
When it was revealed that Chloë Grace Moretz had started dating the son of David and Victoria Beckham, people were actually quite excited to learn more about their relationship. There wasn't much known about Brooklyn Beckham and Chloë Grace Moretz had only just stopped being considered little more than just a child actress in Hollywood. However, their relationship didn't seem to last long and it wasn't exactly all filled with good news and highlights of their relationship. There were some negatives regarding their relationship and their on-again/off-again love story didn't exactly make either one of them look that great in the eyes of the public. This particular photo is a great example of how the two of them should have probably stayed home, rather than deal with the stress of travel and photographers hounding at the airport.
2 Should Have Stayed Home: Johnny Depp And Amber Heard
When Amber Heard and Johnny Depp first began their romantic relationship, there was a bit of questioning regarding her intent towards him. Heard was known for being bisexual and she was also quite younger than Depp. Yet, that didn't stop the two from getting married and traveling the world together. However, the headlines didn't seem to stop regarding their relationship and one particular incident in Australia came with a huge amount of attention. When the two traveled to Australia, they brought along their dogs and it sparked to possible charges against the two. The couple wound up having to release a public service announcement and it was hugely publicized for its poor depiction and awkward behavior by both of them. This Australia trip may not have been the best move, especially when traveling with their animals.
1 Should Have Stayed Home: Vanessa Hudgens And Austin Butler
When it comes to tourists, it's interesting how so many well-known places have started to really look on travelers as a bit bothersome. While many people think of tourists as being a huge boost to the local economy, there are other aspects of travel that have some people up in arms. This photo of Vanessa Hudgens and Austin Butler is a prime example of that since it depicts their visit to Sedona Red Rocks in 2016. The couple shared a photo of themselves and there was also another photo that showed the couple carving into a rock with their names and a heart. While the post was ultimately taken down, the couple came under fire because it was against federal law to damage "any natural feature or other property of the United States."
