You're not the only one out there who looks in a magazine or newspaper and thinks 'man, I wish I had their lifestyle.' You look at Posh and Becks, Kim and Kanye or Ryan and Blake. They have the looks, the money and the celebrity status...just like Natalie and Tim Jones (played by Gal Gadot and Jon Hamm respectively) in the new comedy Keeping up with the Joneses. Karen and Jeff Gaffney (Isla Fisher and Zach Galifianakis) play an unsuspecting couple who are star struck by the amazing new neighbours, the Joneses who literally have everything.
So let's have a look at some celebrity couples who seemingly have it all to mark the release of Keeping up with the Joneses, in cinemas 21st October .
David and Victoria Beckham
The power couple of the 90's and early nouhgties are apparently (as of 2015) worth over £508 million…I mean, most of us will never come close to that amount of money. Nice cars, nice houses and gifted children are just scratching the surface of this successful celebrity family. David Beckham made a name for himself in 1995 when he debuted for Manchester United against Leeds United. He was part of the coveted '92' squad and went from strength to strength until playing for England. Victoria Beckham started out as part of the worldwide super group, The Spice Girls. From there, she has launched a very successful modelling career and fashion line and pushed the Beckham's beyond 'celebrity'.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West
Kanye started his music career in the mid 1990's before launching 'College Dropout The Mixtape' in 2004 and went on to have numerous hit albums and won Grammy's and MTV awards. Kim Kardashian was made famous for Keeping up with the Kardashians and needless to say, they have climbed the ladder of 'power couple' status in America and even have a child together called North. We're transfixed by them. Not to mention the amazing cars, houses, jewellery and clothes they own...
Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively
If there was couple who you'd most like to invite to dinner, it would be this one right? Both insanely good looking with unlimited money, talent and seem like genuinely nice people. Reynolds started out acting in 1991 and had a few roles in films such as Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle and Van Wilder but more recently, he has portrayed Deadpool in the box office hit in 2016. Lively started out with her role in Sister Hood of the Travelling Pants and most recently in The Shallows with the huge success of Gossip Girl in-between . These two are just perfect, they have no downside…expect maybe Green Lantern. But even Ryan recognises this minor hiccup with frustrating cool self-deprecation.
Emily Blunt and John Krasinski
For those fans who have seen The Office, you must have a crazy amount of love for Jim Halpert, played by John Krasinski. Genuine, down-to-earth couples seem few and far between in Hollywood these days what with the constant imposition of social media and public craving for celebrity news. Yet somehow these two manage to keep themselves to themselves and largely keep their private lives hidden. Yet every now and again Krasinski will let slip his school boy romance with the biggest grin across his face. We may not know how much they value cars, wine and jewellery but their endearing love is enough to make the least of cynics tut with disdain under their breath.
Beyoncé and Jay Z
Before Kim and Kanye came the original millennial celebrity power couple, Beyoncé and Jay Z. Together since 1999 their stock has grown considerably and together have an estimated net worth of over $1 billion. Their combined and individual franchises branch out into almost every crevice of the lifestyle and entertainment sectors and have thus become one of the most sought after celebrity couples. Almost to the point where it wouldn't come as a surprise if they were secret agents, it would just be another joint venture that the world would get behind, no questions asked. Although I'm sure their neighbours would have suspected something by now...
I doubt any of these celebrity couples could keep up with the Joneses, but if anyone is going to give them a run for their money it would be the Gaffneys. Keeping up with the Joneses is in UK cinemas 21st October.
