Celebrity voyeurism isn’t a new thing: There’s something lazily gratifying about flipping through a magazine or slideshow of celebrities doing things, whether it’s tweeting their gripes about a presidential debate or showing off their extra-fancy manicures. Celebrity couples, kids, and friend squads are even better, but one-on-one dates are especially intriguing, because in theory, that’s a window into famous people’s very public relationships (except when date night’s an outing to a basketball or football game, which is a favorite celeb past-time).
Still, even if there’s a stadium full of people and a crowd of paparazzi waiting to capture every kiss and smile, it’s entertaining to see and analyze how famous couples interact. Body language interpretation! Hair, makeup, and outfit analysis! Or just, awww, they’re still together in Hollywood, a.k.a. divorce-land. No matter what your motivation is, enjoy these 17 photos of famous couples on dates, day and night, public and private.
