Celebrity Couples Who Come Out By Holding Hands

By  | 

For celebs, holding hands in public can be a couple’s unofficial coming out party. Think about it. There’s no need for a press conference, a sit-down interview with Barbara Walters, or a 6-page spread in W magazine (ahem, Brangelina). Just one paparazzi pic of interlocking hands can say it all!

Here are some of our favorite celebs caught in the PDA-filled act!

Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber
Jelena denied the relationship for a while. Selena even went so far as to say Justin was like her brother. Ew! They finally admitted they were together with this simple pic. Too cute!


Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield
Two stars on the rise. Dating. What could be better than that?!? Besides hand- holding, Andrew gave us an SNL cameo when Emma hosted to confirm their couple status.

Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson
We get it. They’re both very private people. But after years of questions about their relationship, Robsten finally gave us what we wanted: a hand-holding moment. Just enough to keep the Bella/Edward fans happy…for now.

Blake Lively and Leonardo DiCaprio
Although their relationship was short-lived, I couldn’t resist sharing. Blake and Leo might be my fave international hand-holders. Even their paparazzi pics are beautiful!

Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder
There’s nothing I love more than a hot couple on-camera becoming a hot couple off camera! No need to say anything, you guys. Just keep holding hands and giving that sly smile and eyebrow arch. We know what you’re thinking.

Delta Goodrem and Nick Jonas
Nick has surely charmed his share of ladies over the years, so he’s an expert at the hand-holding photo op. I like his form. Protective yet proud.

Zoe Kravitz and Penn Badgley
Everything about this couple says cool, from their hats to their matching shoes. But even they aren’t too cool to show a little hand holding PDA.
