Star couple stats for summer
Hot couples or not couples?
(PEOPLE) -- Who's a twosome and who may be toast this summer?
Okay, Julia Roberts has finally gone and done it, marrying cameraman Danny Moder. That frees up celebrity watchers to try to make sense of the rest of Hollywood's exasperatingly elusive relationships. Are Harrison and Calista still clicking? Angelina and Billy Bob?
And Janet Jackson and Justin Timberlake of 'N Sync -- what's that about? When the pair showed up for dinner at Miami's Nobu July 8, "We were like, 'No way,' " says a staffer at the restaurant. "Those two? They're an unlikely pairing." But does that mean the singers are soulmates? Ships that passed in the night? Or did one ship make a pass at the other?
Here's a scorecard:
Harrison Ford, 60, and Calista Flockhart, 37
