Now that winter is officially behind us, Wonderwall.com has "spring flings" on the brain! Join us as we ring in Spring 2020 by taking a look back at memorable celeb flings from over the years, starting with this incredibly comely (but ultimately incompatible) couple… Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston first connected in May 2016 at the Met Gala… while she was in the midst of a yearlong romance with Calvin Harris. By mid-June 2016, the DJ was out of the picture and the country-pop superstar and the English actor were officially an item. They spent the next three months traveling the world together, but ultimately, their romance couldn't make it past the summer. By September 2016, they were done. Now keep reading for more unforgettable celeb flings…

Kaley Cuoco first hinted at her crush on Henry Cavill on Twitter in mid-June 2013. By early July, there were reports that they were dating. Within days, they were photographed holding hands outside a grocery store in the Los Angeles area, confirming their rumored romance. But then — faster than a speeding bullet — the actress and the "Man of Steel" star had called it quits. The breakup reports hit the Internet on July 11 — just eight days after their grocery store date.

Pamela Anderson made headlines in January 2020 when she married longtime pal Jon Peters — whom she previously dated in the late '80s (pictured) — after just three days of texting. Less than two weeks into their non-legally-binding marriage (they never filed the paperwork to make their union legal), she reportedly realized that she'd "made a terrible mistake" and pulled the plug.

Jennifer Lopez and Drake first sparked romance rumors in late 2016. With weeks, friends were telling People magazine that the superstar was "smitten" with the rapper. They spent New Year's Eve together, exchanged pricey gifts and hung out with her kids, but ultimately, things never got too serious between them… maybe because J.Lo started spending time with Alex Rodriguez that March.
It was the fast-food order heard round the world: In August 2018, Ben Affleck infamously hit up a Jack in the Box drive-thru in the Los Angeles area with his new companion, Playboy model Shauna Sexton. (Their very public outings together were the first indication that the actor and his longterm girlfriend, "Saturday Night Live" producer Lindsay Shookus, had called it quits.) Ben and Shana reportedly continued dating when the A-list actor went to rehab but were over by mid-October.
Naomi Campbell and Liam Payne first sparked romance rumors in January 2019 when fans noticed their flirty behavior on Instagram. Then in February, there were reports that the age-mismatched pair had been secretly dating since late 2018. By mid-April, however, the supermodel had reportedly gotten bored with the singer, who's 23 years her junior, and decided to "let things fizzle out."
It was the romance no one saw coming: In August 2019 — a day before she announced that she and Liam Hemsworth were calling it quits after less than a year of marriage — Miley Cyrus was snapped smooching Brody Jenner's former partner, Kaitlynn Carter. After that, the two women were practically attached at the hip. Just a month into their relationship, there were even reports that they were living together. But just as quickly as they started, they were through. Miley and Kaitlynn split in September 2019, and the singer-actress moved on almost immediately with Cody Simpson.
Back in 2011 — not long before she became Mrs. Ryan Reynolds — Blake Lively enjoyed a five-month romance with another one of Hollywood's most desirable leading men: Leonardo DiCaprio. The duo made headlines when they were seen together during the Cannes Film Festival in May, but by October, she'd moved on with her "Green Lantern" co-star. Blake and Ryan tied the knot less than a year later.
Joe Jonas and Gigi Hadid were the "it" couple of summer 2015 — they even walked a red carpet together! But just five months after they were first linked, they'd gone their separate ways. The model wasted no time moving on with Zayn Malik: They've been off-and-on ever since, though she enjoyed another headline-making whirlwind romance during one of their recent "off" periods…
In the months immediately following his time on "The Bachelorette" in the summer of 2019, Tyler Cameron and Gigi Hadid were practically inseparable — he even accompanied her and her family to her grandmother's funeral in the Netherlands. But less than two months after they first stepped out together, they were over, paving the way for the blonde beauty to reconcile with off-and-on love Zayn Malik.
The world let out a collective "huh?" when Kate Beckinsale's flirtation with Pete Davidson at a 2019 Golden Globes party turned into a relationship. The age-mismatched duo (there's a 20-year gap between them) weren't shy about publicly expressing their affection for one another during their brief but intense romance, which came to an end after just a few months.
Pete Davidson has a very clear modus operandi when it comes to love. In late August 2019, the news broke that the "Saturday Night Live" star was dating Andie MacDowell's daughter, "Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood" and "The Leftovers" actress Margaret Qualley. After that, they got serious fast. The young lovers went big for their official debut: The same month they were first linked, he joined her at the 2019 Venice Film Festival. (He was photographed sitting behind her and Anthony Mackie a the at the premiere of "Seberg.") Less than two months later, it was over.
Most recently, Pete Davidson enjoyed a whirlwind romance with Kaia Gerber. The duo were first linked in the wake of his breakup from Margaret Qualley in late October 2019. A month later, they were snapped holding hands as he joined her at a friend's wedding in Miami. But it wasn't meant to be: They called it quits after the holidays when he went to rehab.
Andrew Garfield and Rita Ora raised eyebrows when they were first romantically linked in November 2018. It turned out to be the real deal: Things were so serious between them, they celebrated Christmas together. By March 2019, however, he'd reportedly dumped her over her spotlight-loving ways.
Michelle Rodriguez and Cara Delevingne first indicated they were a couple in January 2014 when they were caught on camera packing on the PDA during a basketball game in New York City. They were practically attached at the hip after that… until July, that is, when the "Fast and Furious" star, who's 14 years older than the British model-actress, was suddenly seen making out with Zac Efron. Speaking of the former "High School Musical" star…
In early July 2014, Michelle Rodriguez was seen making out with Zac Efron — who's nearly 10 years her junior — during a romantic vacation in Sardina, Italy. Their relationship fizzled out, however, after they got their fill of horseback riding, boating, dirty dancing, romping on the beach and globetrotting. By late August, they'd called it quits. The following January, Michelle admitted during an interview that she "couldn't last more than six months" in a relationship because she's a "lone wolf."
When Scott Disick started spending time with Sofia Richie back in mid-2017, he was actually in the midst of a hot romance with another young star: Bella Thorne. The singer-actress actually traveled from Los Angeles to Cannes to spend time with the father of three, who quickly revealed his playboy ways, leaving her feeling "used." Bella headed home early, leaving Sofia to squeeze her way into Scott's heart. Though the former "Shake It Up" star continued seeing Scott for a couple more months after that, it was ultimately the younger model who got him to commit. Speaking of Sofia…
Sofia Richie spent the summer of 2016 summer lovin' all over Justin Bieber during a break from his off-and-on relationships with Selena Gomez and Hailey Baldwin. The globetrotting romance — which caused major drama for both Selena and Hailey — was over by September.
It was kind of a big deal when Jim Carrey and Ginger Gonzaga revealed they were a couple at a Golden Globes pre-party in January 2019. The very next day, the "Kidding" co-stars took it up a notch by posing together on the red carpet at the annual award show. But that was the last anyone heard of them as a couple. That October, People magazine reported that they'd quietly broken up months earlier.
Just two months after country star Cole Swindell debuted his relationship with wrestler Barbie Blank at the 2019 ACM Awards in April, they called it quits. The duo first sparked romance rumors that February.
