    No Because They Were Absolutely Perfect For Each Other

    From a Redditor:

    Gomez and Morticia in the '90s Addams Family movies. They were hot AF together. Cara mia.

    From Redditor u/MiniatureWendigo:

    They were such a healthy couple in an era where the "dysfunctional family" trope was becoming more popular and I feel like a lot of people overlooked how good of a relationship they really had because they were "weird."

    Side note, the "weird couple" from my high school are still married 20+ years later whereas ZERO of the other couples made it past college.

    "I Love You Babyyyy"

    From Redditor u/oatmealndeath:

    Julia Stiles and Heath Ledger in 10 Things; their chemistry is so believable in that flick.

    From Redditor u/LastDanceGuy12:

    My Dad met them once when they came up to a local burger stop near Stadium High School, said they were both really cool and that Julia Stiles was easily the prettiest woman he had ever met at the time. He kinda hinted that they acted super close so maybe it did happen.
