Young love isn't always eternal but it is certainly memorable and on many occasions tumultuous. While celebrities like Britney Spears, Ashlee Simpson, Reese Witherspoon and Kate Hudson can all attest to the perils of young love, that doesn't mean there isn't hope cupid will prevail. Young Hollywood optimistically plunders forth with new love matches and engagements.
Emma S. & Andrew
Emma Stone was glowing at this year's Tony Awards and it probably had more to do with her date than her white, floor length, Marilyn Monroe inspired gown. The 23-year-old Hollywood it girl is starring in this summer's "The Amazing Spider-Man" with beau Andrew Garfield. She's been dating her co-star, 28, since last summer and, as well as being his real-life girlfriend, plays his onscreen love interest Gwen Stacy.
Miley & Liam
It's been a rocky road for Miley Cyrus and her on- and off-screen boyfriend, "Hunger Games" actor, Liam Hemsworth. They first met while filming the romance "The Last Song" in 2009, reportedly broke up a year later, made up and broke up again. Last week they announced their engagement. Hemsworth, 22, and Cyrus, 19, obviously can't quit each other so they made it official with a 3.5 carat Neil Lane diamond ring for Cyrus.
Emma R. & Chord
What's young love without musical accompaniment? Emma Roberts and Chord Overstreet started their love affair at 2011's Coachella Music Festival and after a slight hiccup, all signs point to them being back together. A source told Us Weekly, Julia Roberts's niece, 21, and "Glee" cast member Overstreet, 23, are "seeing where it goes. They liked each other, but fought a lot."
Taylor & Sara
"Twilight" werewolf Taylor Lautner, 20, and his high school sweetheart, and Los Angeles Clippers cheerleader, Sara Hicks, 20, seem to be enjoying each other's company a whole lot. The couple has been snapped by the paparazzi on dinner dates and at various low-key events in the past year. It's unclear whether the two are just very close exes turned friends or are trying to rekindle their teen romance. The only information Lautner has admitted to is an ongoing crush on the happily married Jessica Alba.
Selena & Justin
Who can forget the ultimate young Hollywood power couple, Justin Bieber, 18, and Selena Gomez, 19? Despite countless Belieber objections, demanding careers and press scrutiny, the lovebirds hit their one year anniversary as an official couple in January and appear completely unfazed by the chaos which surrounds them. Gomez told David Letterman, during her "Late Night" appearance in 2011, Bieber's manager called her mom to set them up. In 2010, the Disney star confessed to Vanity Fair magazine her celeb crush on Shia LaBeouf.
Shia & Karolyn
June birthday boy Shia LaBeouf, 26, has been uncharacteristically quiet about his love life of late, but that doesn't mean he's not dating. Reportedly he has been in a low profile relationship with stylist Karolyn Pho since last year. A perhaps more mature LaBeouf was recently in Cannes for the premiere of "Lawless," sporting facial hair and a strange, slicked back, '80s type mullet.
