Emily and Zooey Deschanel just might be Hollywood’s quirkiest celebrity siblings. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. The saucer-eyed sisters were born and raised in L.A. by showbiz parents Caleb (the cinematographer for Passion of the Christ) and Mary Jo (Eileen Hayward on Twin Peaks). They named their youngest daughter after one of the protagonists of the J.D. Salinger novella Franny and Zooey.

The brassy brunettes are best known for starring in their own massively popular Fox TV shows. Emily spent 12 seasons as the eccentric forensic anthropologist who solved murders on the procedural drama Bones. Zooey portrayed a breezier eccentric on the hit sitcom New Girl. For 7 seasons, she played Jess Day, a fashionably twee school teacher reeling from a bad breakup who moves into a New York City loft with 3 single men.

When the Deschanel sisters aren’t charming television audiences, they follow their passions. Emily is a philanthropist and staunch animal rights activist. Zooey is a singer and musician performing as the “She” of She & Him, and with the jazz cabaret act, If All the Stars Were Pretty Babies. She also founded the feminist website, HelloGiggles. But those are just their resumes – what about their lives behind the scenes?

18 Celebrity Couples You Completely Forgot About

Maybe it’s the nature of the business that causes celebrity couples to burn white hot before blinking out of existence and fading from public memory. When you’re a really, really, ridiculously good looking actor, work often requires you to lay your emotions bare to an equally beautiful co-star. It’s understandable that many stars would find themselves unable to keep their paws off of one another in real life after pretending to do so for hours at a time on the job.

At one time, these now-forgotten duos were head-over-heals, and their escapades were the talk of the town. Not every couple on this list met on set, but most have since been in a more high profile or significant relationship. At times, it can feel like high school, with the constant intermingling and swapping. But when you think about it, you have to kiss a lot of super sexy frogs before finding the true love (that you will later divorce). In some cases, even though both parties were equally successful at the time of their union, only one of them has sustained their grade, or graduated to the A-List. In other cases, they remained equally famous, but had other celebrity waters to traverse.

Whatever the case, take a trip down memory lane with these 18 Celebrity Couples You Completely Forgot About.
