10 Celeb Couples That Might Have Been
Jenna Dewan & Justin Timberlake
What Actually Happened: There were rumors that former backup dancer Jenna may have had a role in the infamous Justin Timberlake/Britney Spears breakup of 2002 (whoa, that was 10 years ago?!), but that's unconfirmed. What is more widely believed is that Timberlake and Dewan briefly did the naked lambada when he was officially single. It didn't last long -- he was in major rebound mode -- and she went on to date Shane West and then marry her "Step Up" costar Channing Tatum. Justin, of course, dated Cameron Diaz for a bit and then Jessica Biel, to whom he is now engaged.
What Could Have Happened If They Stayed Together: Talk about great for Jenna's career! She's had a slow time of it in Hollywood and has yet to have a true "big break." She and Channing got together before he was even considered a true star and while he's on the cusp of true superstar status with "Magic Mike," I'm afraid it's too late for his success to help much with her career. But a long-term relationship -- or at least a more public one -- with Timberlake? Hello, voiceovers in hugely successful animated films! A sexy starring role in the video for "Sexy Back"! And lots and lots and lots of Us Weekly covers. Oh wellz. Channing Tatum is a sweet consolation prize.
Level Of Relief This Couple Was Not Meant To Be: Moderate. I'm bored to tears by Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel's relationship, but I really like Jenna and Channing together.
