They might get those happily ever afters on our screens, but off-screen? Let's just say things look very different. From Shakira to Kim Kardashian, meet some of Hollywood's eligible bachelors and bachelorettes...
While she is no stranger to love and marriage, Charlize Theron has been happily single for years. The Young Adult actress was previously married to Stuart Townsend and Sean Penn. Since her divorce from Penn in 2015, Theron decided to focus on what is most important in her life - her two daughters, Jackson and August.
Theron doesn't seem to be bothered by her single status. She said in 2020 on The Drew Barrymore Show, "I can honestly say this, on my life, I don't feel lonely." And most recently, she even admitted to Harper's Bazaar that she almost got into a relationship but felt "so out of practice."
Another member of the Kardashian clan is back on the market. Supermodel sister Kendall Jenner is single again after quietly ending her two-year relationship with basketball player Devin Booker. The on-again-off-again couple officially called it quits in November, per Us Weekly.
Jenner will have no problem keeping busy. Between filming for The Kardashians, her modeling career, taking care of horses, and running her tequila brand, 818 Tequila, she has plenty to keep herself occupied. And who knows? Love may be around the corner for this eligible bachelorette.
The retired Brazilian supermodel is officially single again. After going through a public divorce from Tampa Bay quarterback husband, Tom Brady, Gisele is back on the market after 13 years of marriage. The single mother of two has taken the time to recharge and recenter herself.
After the shocking divorce, Gisele has been settling back into her new life. She posted photos on her Instagram with her two kids, Benjamin and Vivian, in her home country, Brazil. We are not sure if someone else will be able to score a touchdown with this single lady, but they can try!
Sister, sister - this single lady comes as a shock. Tia Mowry announced her divorce from her husband of 14 years, Cory Hardrict, back in October 2022. She's not letting it get her down, though. This newly single sister is making sure she's taking care of the most important person - herself.
The mom of two explained to PEOPLE, "It's about learning how to be aware and present with myself, and tapping in and making sure I too am taken care of. [Because] how can you take care of other people if your cup isn't filled?" Ain't that the truth!
This Hollywood starlet is back on the market. Brittany Snow announced her split from Selling the OC real estate agent husband, Tyler Stanaland. The couple was married for two years before calling it quits. Now the Pitch Perfect star is looking for someone to be with in harmony.
Snow was previously attached to Greek actor Ryan Rottman, Teen Wolf star Tyler Hoechlin, and filmmaker Andrew Jenks. Sometimes kissing a few frogs is in order to find a happy ending, but hopefully, Snow will find someone to match her pitch perfectly.
Her hips may not have lied, but her man seemingly did. Shakira announced her split from FC Barcelona player Gerard Piqué. Page Six reported that she found out about his alleged cheating when she noticed there was jam missing from the jar. So, after 11 years together, the couple called it quits.
Now, the Whenever, Wherever singer is single. Although, we're not sure if she's ready to mingle yet. She recently released a new song, Monotonía, with lyrics that seem directly aimed at her ex. She is belting her heart out, and we can't help but root for this single lady.
The Amazing Spider-Man actor is swinging back into single life. Andrew Garfield ended things with his model and singer girlfriend, Alyssa Miller. The couple had been dating for a year before their breakup. However, we're sure it won't take long for Garfield to be swept away again.
Garfield most famously dated his Amazing Spider-Man costar, Emma Stone. Years after their breakup, Garfield said, "We care about each other so much, and that's a given, that's kind of this unconditional thing." Aww! The eligible Brit makes our hearts melt.
Tracee Ellis Ross
Tracee Ellis Ross has no problems with being single. She'll say it loud and proud. She was previously linked to music manager Abou "Bu" Thiam, rapper Akon's older brother. While the Black-ish actress is open to a relationship, she is totally happy being single.
Ross shared what she learned during her time without a partner, "But in my wonderful and robust experience of being single, I have learned to have a productive relationship with loneliness and an intensely juicy relationship with my joyful solitude—I really enjoy my company."
She may be able to hit a pitch-perfect note, but she has yet to find the perfect partner. Actress Anna Kendrick is single once again after calling it quits with Saturday Night Live alum Bill Hader. Entertainment Tonight reported the news of the hilarious duo's breakup in June 2022.
We are holding out for the Drinking Buddies actress that she will find her prince charming. Kendrick once tweeted, "If I were a contestant on The Bachelor, I'd just end up falling in love with the weird sound guy and making things uncomfortable for everyone." Maybe we'll see a familiar face next season?
Fran Drescher is fine, indeed! So, it really comes as a shock that The Nanny actress is currently single. In 1999, she divorced her husband of 21 years, Peter Marc Jacobson. After going through the public breakup, Drescher decided to focus on being in a relationship with herself.
Recently, the New York native opened up about her dating experiences in this new age, stating, "I tried one app once and I found that none of the guys seemed to be honest about how they presented themselves." This is so #relatable. We're hoping that Mr. Right will come knocking on Drescher's door.
Our next bachelorette has been linked with some of Hollywood's most eligible men. However, Katie Holmes is currently single, but we have a feeling that it won't be for too long. Holmes was most recently linked up with musician Bobby Wooten III, but the couple split after eight months of dating.
The Dawson's Creek alum has also been attached to chef Emilio Vitolo Jr., Oscar winner Jamie Foxx, actor Chris Klein, and her Creek costar Joshua Jackson. However, perhaps her most high-profile relationship was with Mission Impossible actor Tom Cruise. The couple shares a daughter, Suri, together. What's next for Holmes?
There is nothing to worry about with this eligible bachelorette, darling. Florence Pugh quietly ended things with her beau, Zach Braff, in 2022. The couple ended on amicable terms, with Braff saying about his ex, "I want to see whatever this person does."
Any man would be lucky to catch the eye of the Midsommar actress. Who wouldn't want to be the one for Pugh? The broken-up couple has a movie coming out, which they worked on together. Pugh starred in, and Braff directed the film. Maybe their love will rekindle? We'll have to wait and see...
Since Pugh is single, that means her former lover, Zach Braff, is also single. The Scrubs actor has also had relationships with model Taylor Bagley, UnReal actress Shiri Appleby, Marie Antoinette actress Kirsten Dunst, This Is Us actress Mandy Moore, and others.
Based on his history, we don't think he'll have any trouble in the dating department. The lovable and adorable actor captured the heart of millions in his portrayal of JD on Scrubs, and now he'll surely be on the lookout for the girl who will make his heart pitter-patter. Who will it be?
"Oh God, I don't know," Aniston confessed of potentially becoming a Mrs. again. While her love life might have been DOA during her time at Central Perk, this Friends beauty is one of the most sought-after singles to make it to our list.
After splitting with Justin Theroux back in 2017, Aniston has been flying solo over the years. As for if that'll ever change? "I'm interested in finding a fantastic partner and just living an enjoyable life," she explained. "That's all we should hope for." And on that note, amen...
From East High all the way to Australia, we've watched this Disney star's love life take him to the most unexpected of places. But despite falling in love with his waitress over in New South Wales last year, the 33-year-old actor is officially back on the market.
Might the High School Musical hunk find his way back to his latest ex, Vanessa Valladares? Or perhaps could this be the start of something new? Whatever the case may be, we're just gonna throw it out there that we happen to be single and ready to mingle...
He might have been partner in crime to the wolf of Wall Street, but make no mistake about it: the only thing illegal about this lovable actor is that he's still on the market. After calling off his engagement to Gianna Santos back in 2020, Hill has since yet to woo over another lucky lady.
But while that might make him one eligible bachelor, we're not the only ones feeling smitten by the charming star. "I'm 37 and finally love and accept myself," Hill proudly revealed on Instagram of his self-love journey. Just when we thought we couldn't love him anymore...
We know, it's weird to think of Kimye being no longer. Unfortunately, Kardashian and Kanye's recent split is all too real. And with the SKIMS beauty officially back on the market, the stakes have never been higher. But we're not the only ones who feel that way.
From Nicholas Braun to Soulja Boy, seemingly everyone over in Hollywood has wasted no time shooting their shot. And with her very own empire, millions tucked away in the bank, and mini-me's destined to follow in her footsteps, we can understand why this boss-lady has got everybody talking.
He might be used to spilling the tea, but Andy Cohen's latest revelation actually had nothing to do about feuding housewives or secret scandals. The Bravo star recently sat down to open up about his love life - well, lack thereof. And from the sounds of it? There's actually 2 hearts up for grabs in the Cohen household.
"You're not only dating me, but you're gonna date - you know, my son's in the picture," the reality star explained of his little man. Clearly, any guy would be lucky to take this doting father off of the market. Though you'd probably have to brush up on your reality-tv first...
From heartbroken to heartless, Abel Tesfaye's come a long way since we first met him as a lovestruck Starboy. But that's exactly why he nabbed a spot on our list. With more Grammys than we could count and no sign of slowing down anytime soon, The Weeknd is doing just fine on his own.
While Selena Gomez and Bella Hadid might not back us on this one, this hopeless romantic would make any woman a lucky lady. Not to mention, who doesn't love a man that wears his heart on his sleeve? Just ask our next star, who's also taken a pen to paper to voice her emotions...
While she may have once told us that the heart wants what it wants, this beauty has actually been riding solo for quite some time. But from the sounds of it, she's exactly where she wants to be. "I've been having way too much fun being on my own," Gomez confessed.
After calling it quits with her on-and-off-again boyfriends, Justin Bieber and The Weeknd, the Latina bombshell has learned the true meaning of love. "I want it to be real, and I don't want it to be codependent or messy," she explained. Until then? We'll find the independent goddess "[happily] waiting… however long it takes."
Clearly, no one told us life was gonna be this way: this Friends star left us buzzing after announcing he'd broken off his engagement to fiancée Molly Hurwitz this past June. "Sometimes things just don't work out, and this is one of them," Perry revealed at the time.
Could we BE any more caught off guard? Nonetheless, from his charm to his success, any lady would be lucky to call themselves Mrs. Chandler Bing. (That is, so long as Monica Geller doesn't get in their way). On the bright side, a little competition never hurt anybody, right Monica?
Our next single has got it all - a thriving career, millions in the bank, and an army of fans (well, that is, if you weren't a fan of McDreamy). But while the Grey's Anatomy screenwriter might be the brains behind some of TV's most devastating deaths, her time off-screen is a lot less bleak.
In fact, despite leading a single life, this 51-year-old boss lady is happier than ever. "I have never wanted to get married. I never played bride," Rhimes confessed. As she put it, "I was never interested." Well, while we might not be lucky enough to ever sweep her off her feet, we can certainly all learn a thing or two from her.
Sure, we've watched her shed many, many tears over Ryan during her time at Dunder Mifflin. But off-screen? This Office star doesn't need a man by her side to feel happy. Then again, maybe that's because she's too busy trying to keep tabs of her accomplishments (psst, there's lots of 'em).
From recently penning both Legally Blonde 3 and the latest season of Never Have I Ever - all while being pregnant, mind you - this single momma literally does it all. And while we don't know how she does it, make no mistake about it: "I feel so lucky... I've found a great deal of joy and fun," Kaling gushed.
Believe it or not, this singing legend actually doesn't have a lucky lady to compare to a kiss from a rose. Well, at the moment, at least. Ever since the Kiss From a Rose artist parted ways from Heidi Klum back in 2014, he's been living a relatively single life.
Of course, that also makes him one of the most eligible bachelors over in Hollywood. From his endless talent (as heard on our radios) to his public battle with lupus, the artist is as inspiring as he is successful. And hey, who wouldn't want to get serenaded by the charming Brit?
Much like Seal, our next star certainly knows a thing or two about penning his feelings. After all, he's been winning over hearts around the globe for years now. But despite his time on our radios, this singing icon hasn't been free fallin' in quite some time now.
As for how he's still single? "Google me," Mayer joked back in 2019 of his failed flings. But despite the broken hearts and tears shed along the way, this heartbreaker isn't going anywhere anytime soon. "There's one thing left [on the bucket list], and that's [having a] wife and kids." he teased. Aaaand may the best woman win.
Did anyone really think Bill Gates' name wasn't going to make it onto our list? The successful billionaire had been happily linked up to wife, Melinda, for the past 27 years. That is, until they sent left us scrambling after announcing their sudden split in May 2022.
"We no longer believe we can grow together as a couple," the two revealed. And while we wish nothing but the best for his soon-to-be ex-wife, we'd be lying if we said we're not a little bit excited about his newly single status. From his endless success to his family values, let's be real: Bill is a catch.
Much like Mr. Gates, Scooter Braun left us with a whole lot of questions after news broke of his and his wife's split this past July: while most of us were too busy focusing on another special person in his life, Justin Bieber's manager had actually been married to entrepreneur Yael Cohen for the past 7 years.
"The adventure is just beginning... I love you," Braun had gushed online of his and his wife's anniversary - mere days before their split. Interesting timeline, we know. But while we're hoping for the best as these two navigate their latest chapter, their split also places Braun as one of Hollywood's most eligible singles.
"I just have to trust... I just need to focus on today and go day by day," Khloe Kardashian explained after giving her baby daddy Tristan another chance - despite the numerous cheating scandals that clouded his name over the years. Unfortunately, she soon realized she may have spoke too soon.
Later on in 2022, Khloe revealed that she was learning to "un-love" Tristan Thompson. And while Tristan's alleged wandering eye might be to blame here, their split places KoKo as one of Hollywood's most eligible bachelorettes. There's no denying any man would be lucky to link up with this loyal beauty.
She might have a knack for making us laugh, but that's only one of the many things we love about our next bachelorette. From her very own talk show (rumored to return soon, btw) to her time in the director's seat, this boss lady's success knows no end.
As for if she'll ever be ready to share that success? "I have a pretty good life, so I'm happy if I don't have a relationship," the independent beauty confessed. Nonetheless, she's not closing that door just yet. "I'd love to find somebody to love." Hear that?
We might have once watched him make his way down the aisle, but this Wedding Crasher has actually never been married. Lucky for us, though, that also makes him one of the most eligible singles in Hollywood. But if by some chance there's more convincing to be done here?
The 52-year-old golden boy is as sentimental as he is successful. "I guess I'm a little old-fashioned," Wilson confessed of instilling family values on his 3 children, Robert, Lyla, and Finn. And given his Texas charm? Here's to hoping this actor finally gets that fairytale ending off-screen…
