Gah, how cute (and semi-poetic/unashamedly slushy) are this super loved-up bunch?
There’s nothing we love more than romantic celebrity quotes from our favourite loved-up Hollywood couples. We love it when they kiss on the red carpet, when they hold hands while doing the grocery shopping – and most of all, when they say the most *adorable* things about each other in interviews.
Channing Tatum is guilty of always saying incredibly sweet things about his wife Jenna Dewan Tatum, as is John Legend – who is partial to a romantic quote about his wife Chrissy Teigen.
Then there are the Beckhams, who are forever saying the nicest things about each other – and that’s not even mentioning George Clooney, who loves to show off about his wife Amal. And what’s more, Adele is also super loved-up, as her partner just surprised her on stage in the sweetest way.
Plus, who doesn’t love a hot new couple to obsess over? Every time there’s a new pairing we basically drool over them for the next week or so, because everything they say and do is absolutely heart bursting.
We’ve also got Kanye West, Michael Douglas, and Chris Pratt’s very poetic words in here to make you all go ‘aww’. The levels of cuteness are almost too much for us to handle. Whoever said true love doesn’t exist clearly hadn’t met these guys.
Scroll through for all the latest celebrity slush buckets we can’t help cooing over…
Ellen DeGeneres and her wife Portia de Rossi are super loved-up. Speaking to People, the talk show host said: ‘I’m so grateful for the love in my life, because not everybody finds that. Not everybody finds that best friend… Portia and I constantly say to each other, “We are so lucky.”‘ Awww.
When asked what his favourite thing about wife Leighton Meester is, Adam Brody responded: ‘Too many to count. She’s the BEST.’
Most recently, John Krasinski was saying adorable things about his wife, Emily Blunt, on Sunday Today. ‘My wife is my hero in every single way. Truly every single day I’m blown away by her’ he said. ‘So I’m always looking to her for inspiration.’
George and Amal are always adorbs on the red carpet, and the story of how George proposed is much the same. ‘‘I knew fairly quickly that I wanted to spend the rest of my life with Amal (but) we had never talked about it so there wasn’t like a “Hey, maybe we should get married.” Literally, I dropped it on her. And she just kept saying, “Oh my god,” and “Wow” – completely unexpected.
If that’s not sweet enough for you, look back at the nicest George Clooney quotes about Amal Clooney.
Alicia Vikander and Michael Fassbender spoke about when they first met – and how it was love at first sight. ‘I thought [I was a good dancer] until she started dancing, and then I felt like I had two left feet’ Michael told ET. He also said their chemistry was ‘there from the beginning’. Oh, you guys.
John Legend revealed how he fell for wife, Chrissy Teigen, to Entertainment Tonight. ‘We were texting a lot, and I started to see her sense of humour. We would talk on the phone, and I started to fall in love with how engaging and witty and funny she is. I wasn’t nervous about it, when you feel a real connection to somebody, for me it wasn’t nerves, it was more like excitement. “Oh, this could be great.”‘ So sweet.
Chrissy has previously how her wish to marry John Legend came true, via Instagram: ‘Back to where it all began – Lake Como, Italy, first came here in 2007. A boat tour guide took us to a little spot on the lake and told us to make a wish. I asked for this to be the man I marry and have children with. I think John asked for the most perfect bite of cacio e pepe. Both came true, and here we are.’
Here’s the couple the world can’t take their eyes off, Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston, affectionately nicknamed ‘Hiddleswift’. A source told E! News that ‘It’s an ongoing conversation with the girls on how happy she is. Tay has mentioned numerous times how ‘in love’ with each other they are.’ Aww.
Ellie Goulding on Dougie Poynter: ‘When I met Dougie, he had no game. He was just like, “you’re really cool, let’s go out.” It was me that pursued him, a bit, very unexpectedly. Before him, I was having a single period and hating all men, saying never again, after a series of things that happened to me. I really, really thought I was going to be single for a long while. But then I met him and was like, uh-oh, game over. He was just so nice. So, you know, you don?t throw something like that away so easily.’
John Krasinski on Emily Blunt: ‘I’ll be really honest with you, I was never the coolest kid on the block, so I never had the “good ol’ days” of a playboy type of lifestyle. My good ol’ days were entirely different. So for me, the best days of my life started when I met my wife – that’s the truth, it’s not just me saying it because it sounds nice on a card. She’s one of the coolest people, she’s so talented, she’s beautiful, and she’s certainly out of my league. And so all of a sudden all of the things I loved, I got to find someone who loved that about me. There was a lot of my life that she hadn’t experienced and a lot of her life that I hadn’t experienced, so all of a sudden we got to start doing things that we liked. When you’re lucky enough to meet your one person then life takes a turn for the best. It can’t get better than that.’
Channing Tatum on Jenna Dewan Tatum: ‘It’s not hard to take a beautiful picture of this magical creature. But I thought this one was special. If it wasn’t for her I would have never even found the path much less stayed on it and not flown off in flaming truck of dynamite singing devil went down to Georgia. Hahahaha. To my light. I love you.’
Oh Channing, let us count the ways in which we love you.
Benji Madden on Cameron Diaz: ‘I couldn’t be more proud of my bad ass wife. She wakes up every day on a mission to try and make the world a better place. I’m always amazed by the courage, strength and vulnerability she shows, relentlessly encouraging other women to love themselves. It has been amazing to get to watch her journey with her new book!’
John Legend on Chrissy Teigen: ‘I told [Chrissy] before that I was always attracted to pregnant women, but I never actually had one myself, so now I?m excited to be with a beautiful, pregnant woman.’
Cute or what?
Calvin Harris on Taylor Swift: “It’s not even a case of ticking all the boxes, there’s boxes that I didn’t even know existed [that] she ticks.”
Oh, Calvin. You smoothie.
Chris Pratt on Anna Faris: ‘Anna and I are meant to be together. Our relationship has made me believe in divine intervention and destiny?’
We were struggling to love Chris Pratt even more than we already do – and then he went and said this about his wife Anna Faris. Consider us, enamoured.
Kanye West on Kim Kardashian: ‘I loved her from the day I saw her.’
Ever the poet, Kanye West has never been shy about wearing his heart on his sleeve – well, about anything actually – but he’s always been particularly vocal about his love for Kim and this quote is right up there with the darned cutest.
Michael Douglas on Catherine Zeta Jones: ‘I just got struck down. I was just bowled over by Catherine. When I discovered she loved golf, I realised all my fantasies had come true.’
John Krasinski on Emily Blunt: ‘It was one of those things where I wasn’t really looking for a relationship and I was thinking I’m going to take my time in L.A. Then I met her and I was so nervous. I was like, “Oh god, I think I’m going to fall in love with her.” As I shook her hand I went, “I like you.”‘
Another regulation Hollywood cutie, John Krasinski’s an unashamed slush bucket when it comes to his brilliant wife, British actress Emily Blunt.
Channing Tatum on Jenna Dewan: ‘Maybe because I’ve spent a lot of time with her, but pay attention guys. If you love the person, just figure out how to make them happy. Write a little note. Put it under the toilet seat. Do something crazy. Make them laugh.’
(The toilet seat… Really!?)
George Clooney on Amal Clooney: ‘It’s a humbling thing when you find someone to love, even better if you’ve been waiting your whole life.’
David Beckham on Victoria Beckham: ‘If you love someone, you want to treat them, surprise them, remind them how you feel? Whether that means a weekend away somewhere, or a bowl of fruit in the morning laid out in the shape of a heart. I know Victoria thinks I’m romantic like that.’
…I’m not sure we’ll ever be able to look at fruit laid out not in the shape of heart without disappointment ever again.
