We're playing matchmaker and pairing celebrities up who we think would be perfect for each other. Whether it's because they're friends in real life, like Ellen and Alexander, or because they have common interests, like fellow young wilder-outers Justin and Miley, or just because they'd look smokin' hot together, like George and Sandra, these are five celebrity couples we wish would happen in real life. We hope you're listening (you can thank us in your wedding speech later).
Sandra Bullock and George Clooney
They've been lighting up the Venice Film Festival red carpet together for their movie, Gravity, and acting adorable for the photographers. He kissed her hand, she wiped his brow. Not only is their photo chemistry intense, but they would make such a handsome couple. Move over, Posh and Becks, Gisele and Tom — George and Sandra will be the best-looking couple in Hollywood. We really, really hope.
Alexander Skarsgard and Ellen Page
Ellen Page and Alexander Skarsgard fueled rumors of a romance when she posted an Instagram pic of her leaning on him while he kissed her head, inducing an "awww" heard around the world. However, a source confirmed that they're just friends, crushing our hopes. The best foundation for a relationship is a solid friendship, right? But seriously, how ridiculously cute would they be?
Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus
Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus have both exhibited some wild and questionable behavior recently. He peed into a mop bucket and caused a ruckus, she twerked all over Robin Thicke and caused a ruckus. Why not join forces and wreak havoc together? With his shirtlessness and her pantslessness combined, I don't even want to know what kind of trouble these two could get into.
Tom Cruise and Demi Moore
Even though Tom Cruise and Demi Moore don't really run in the same circles, they might hit it off as a couple. They're less than a year apart (he's 51, she's turning 51 in a few months) and both were dumped by much younger spouses somewhat recently, so maybe it's time for them to try dating someone their own age. They could reminisce about the 80s and actually know what each other was talking about.
Keanu Reeves and Kristen Stewart
This may seem like an odd pairing, but hear me out. He's perpetually sad and sometimes looks homeless sitting on a bench in his tattered jeans; she rarely smiles and more than occasionally dresses like a hobo. But they're both incredibly good-looking underneath all that misery, so why shouldn't Keanu Reeves and Kristen Stewart brood and go shopping at Goodwill together?

A decade-long gap between sequels could leave a franchise stale but in the case of Men in Black 3 it's the launch pad for an unexpectedly great blockbuster. The kooky antics of Agent J (Will Smith) and Agent K (Tommy Lee Jones) don't stray far from their 1997 and 2002 adventures but without a bombardment of follow-ups to keep the series in mind the wonderfully weird sensibilities of Men in Black feel fresh Smith's natural charisma once again on full display. Barry Sonnenfeld returns for the threequel another space alien romp with a time travel twist — which turns out to be Pandora's Box for the director's deranged imagination.
As time passed in the real world so did it for the timeline in the world of Men in Black. Picking up ten years after MIB 2 J and K are continuing to protect the Earth from alien threats and enforce the law on those who live incognito. While dealing with their own personal issues — K is at his all-time crabbiest for seemingly no reason — the suited duo encounter an old enemy Boris the Animal (Jemaine Clement) a prickly assassin seeking revenge on K who blew his arm off back in the '60s. Their street fight is more of a warning; Boris' real plan is to head back in time to save his arm and kill off K. He's successful prompting J to take his own leap through the time-space continuum — and team up with a younger K (Josh Brolin) to put an end to Boris plans for world domination.
Men in Black 3 is the Will Smith show. Splitting his time between the brick personalities of Jones and Brolin's K Smith struts his stuff with all the fast-talking comedic style that made him a star in yesteryears. In present day he's still the laid back normal guy in a world of oddities — J raises an eyebrow as new head honcho O (Emma Thompson) delivers a eulogy in a screeching alien tongue but coming up with real world explanations for flying saucer crashes comes a little easier. But back in 1969 he's an even bigger fish out water. Surprisingly director Barry Sonnenfeld and writer Etan Cohen dabble in the inherent issues that would spring up if a black gentlemen decked out in a slick suit paraded around New York in the late '60s. A star of Smith's caliber may stray away from that type of racy humor but the hook of Men in Black 3 is the actor's readiness for anything. He turns J's jokey anachronisms into genuine laughs and doesn't mind letting the special effect artists stretch him into an unrecognizable Twizzler for the movie's epic time jump sequence.
Unlike other summer blockbusters Men in Black 3 is light on the action Sonnenfeld utilizing his effects budget and dazzling creature work (by the legendary Rick Baker) to push the comedy forward. J's fight with an oversized extraterrestrial fish won't keep you on the edge of your seat but his slapstick escape and the marine animal's eventual demise are genuinely amusing. Sonnenfeld carries over the twisted sensibilities he displayed in small screen work like Pushing Daisies favoring bizarre banter and elaborating on the kookiness of the alien underworld than battle scenes. MIB3's chase scene is passable but the movie in its prime when Smith is sparring with Brolin and newcomer Michael Stuhlbarg who steals the show as a being capable of seeing the future. His twitchy character keeps Smith and the audience on their toes.
Men in Black 3 digs up nostalgia I wasn't aware I had. Smith's the golden boy of summer and even with modern ingenuity keeping it fresh — Sonnenfeld uses the mandatory 3D to full and fun effect — there's an element to the film that feels plucked from another era. The movie is economical and slight with plenty of lapses in logic that will provoke head scratching on the walk out of the theater but it's also perfectly executed. After ten years of cinematic neutralizing the folks behind Men in Black haven't forgotten what made the first movie work so well. After al these years Smith continues to make the goofy plot wild spectacle and crazed alien antics look good.
