    We’ve rounded up the most unexpected former A-list couples from years gone by.

    Remember when Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears were the biggest thing on the planet, in all that denim? Of course you do. But did you know that Justin also dated pop princess Fergie, pre-Britney?

    Way before he married Mila Kunis, Ashton Kutcher was a red carpet regular with a pre-Mad Men January Jones. Possibly even more unexpected though, is that Ashton allegedly tried to discourage January from acting (yes, there could have been no Betty Draper if he’d had his way).

    “[He] was not supportive of my acting,” January told GQ. He was like, ‘I don’t think you’re going to be good at this.”

    We’ve also unearthed some pure 90s joy in the form of Julia Roberts and Kiefer Sutherland together on the red carpet – they got engaged after meeting on the set for Flatliners. But Julia is said to have called off their wedding just days before the ‘do, as Kiefer had reportedly been going behind her back. Naughty boy.
