Do you Know The Hottest Celebrity Couples to Debut at the Cannes Film Festival?

Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart in 2012?

This is a long shot, but there's a possibility that Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart could step out as a couple at Cannes this year. Why? Well, the final installment of the Twilight franchise, Breaking Dawn: Part 2, hits theaters in a few months, so their debut would mean some serious press for the film. Plus, since they're no longer co-stars, it seems like the perfect time to finally admit they've been dating all along. They'll both already be in Cannes to support their respective new flicks, so the timing seems oh-so right. Will it happen? Stay tuned!

Rachel McAdams and Michael Sheen in 2011

Ryan Gosling's ex-girlfriend Midnight In Paris Premiere - 64th Annual Cannes Film FestivalRachel McAdams made her public debut with Midnight in Paris co-star Michael Sheen at last year's Cannes Film Festival. They'd been linked since the Toronto Film Festival a few months earlier (insiders said they were caught smooching there), but the duo made it official in France last May. Eyes were definitely on the blonde actress, who was wearing what looked to be an engagement ring on her left hand. However, her rep assured everyone that the stars were "100 percent not engaged." They're still plugging along, but have no plans to walk down the aisle just yet.

Blake Lively and Leonardo DiCaprio in 2011

Blake Lively and Leonardo DiCaprio at African Queen RestaurantLeonardo DiCaprio had just dumped girlfriend of nearly five years, Bar Refaeli, when he made his first public appearance with Gossip Girl star Blake Lively while in Cannes last May. The pair seemed inseparable as they snuggled aboard a luxury yacht and the cameras snapped away. Unfortunately, it wasn't long before Lively moved on with Green Lantern co-star Ryan Reynolds. Will those two step out at Cannes this year?

Lindsay Lohan and Samantha Ronson in 2008

Lindsay Lohan and Samantha Lindsay Lohan and Samantha Ronson on the Set of 'Ugly Betty'Ronson avoided the red carpet together, but they did seem to confirm speculation about their romantic relationship at Cannes in 2008. They were spotted making out at Diddy's yacht party and it was all caught on camera. About a month later, Lohan roundaboutly confirmed that the gals were dating. They lasted about a year before going their separate ways.
Sean Penn and Petra Nemcova in 2012

Haiti Carnaval 2012 photocallJust weeks after model Petra Nemcova called off her engagement to Jamie Belman, she stepped out at Cannes with former fling Sean Penn. Nemcova, 32, and Penn, 51, had their first go-around back in 2008, but it only lasted a couple of weeks. Now, they seem smitten all over again. The pair has attended many of this year's film events together, including Penn's high-profile Haiti benefit Friday night. The blonde has been sure to wear plenty of glitzy gowns while flirting with her man in front of the cameras. He doesn't seem to mind at all.

Chris Pine and Dominique Piek in 2012

Actor Chris Pine and Sports Chris+Pine in Celebs at the Cannes Opening CeremonyIllustrated model Dominique Piek have been rumored to be dating since last fall, but they had managed to escape the cameras until choosing to step out together at Cannes earlier this week. They held hands on the red carpet at the opening night gala Wednesday and showed the world what a stunning pair they make. Piek stole the show in a skintight Giorgio Armani gown while Pine looked dapper in a nondescript tux. The brunette tweeted about their big night: "Nothing could have prepared me for the crazy red carpet experience. Thank goodness I made it in one piece up the stairs!"

Eva Longoria and Eduardo Cruz in 2012

Eva Longoria & Eduardo Cruz Party In CannesThis Desperate Housewives star didn't exactly make her big debut with Penelope Cruz's brother Eduardo at Cannes, but they did make their "we're back together" debut at the film fest. The pair had been dating since January 2011, but they reportedly split in March of this year. However, rumors of a reunion went around weeks later, but those reports weren't confirmed until they stepped out at a fancy yacht party in France Friday evening. It looks like things are back to normal, especially since Cruz was spotted in his favorite black hat and unbuttoned white shirt.
