We all know what a desert island is. It's an island that is not populated by humans, at least not on a permanent basis.
According to Wikipedia, desert islands, also known as uninhabited islands, are often used in stories or depicted in movies about shipwrecked people. Sometimes desert islands are also used as a stereotype for the idea of an elusive "paradise."
At one point or another in our lives, most of us have found ourselves trying to answer the question "what three items would we bring to an island?" or some variation of it.
It's one of those questions that our acquaintances or friends ask us at parties when they run out of other things to say (or alternatively, and somewhat more rarely, when they want to get to know us better).
This quiz is yet another spin on the famous desert island question. However, instead of asking everyone to choose a number of items to bring with them to a desert island, we ask everyone to choose a couple of A-list sweethearts instead.
Choose the first option (i.e., Definitely!) if spending some alone time on a desert island with a specific sweetheart sounds appealing. And choose the second option (i.e., I'd rather be alone) if the celebrity in question is unappealing. In the end, we'll give everyone their perfect match (i.e., their desert island companion).
Emma Watson is the actress who played the nerdy Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter movie series. Most of us will forever associate Watson with this role even though she is trying her best to establish herself as a versatile actress. For example, since the magical series ended she has gone on to star in films such as Beauty and the Beast, Colonia, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, The Circle, and Regression. Furthermore, later this year she will play the role of Meg March in Little Women (Wikipedia).
You're not wrong if you think that Mila Kunis looks exotic. According to Wikipedia, she was seven years old when she left Soviet Ukraine for the U.S. She was quickly enrolled in after school acting classes by her parents and was almost immediately picked up by an agent. Her first major role was that of Jackie Burkhart in the famous sitcom That '70s Show. It was on set of this series that she met her current husband (although they did not get together until years after the show had concluded).
Alexandra Daddario is a stunning woman (just look at those eyes!) but she has more than just her looks going for her. Indeed, she is also incredibly talented and has starred in countless movies and TV shows over the years. Some of her more notable roles include Annabeth Chase in the Percy Jackson movie series, Summer Quinn in Baywatch, Blake Gaines in San Andreas, Avery Martin in When We First Met, Rachel in Parenthood and Kate Moreau in White Collar (Wikipedia).
Taylor Swift is one of the most famous singers and songwriters in the world. According to Wikipedia, she is known for narrative songs that detail her personal life (and in particular, her romantic life). She is one of the best-selling music artists in history and has sold more than 50 million albums. Her songs have been downloaded more than 150 million times. She has also tried her hand at acting though. For example, you might recall seeing her in Valentine's Day and The Giver.
If Emma Stone is the A-list sweetheart you'd most like to end up on a desert island with, then go ahead and select the first option! If not, opt for the second one (i.e., I'd rather be alone) instead. Stone made her film debut just over a decade ago, in 2007, when she was cast in Superbad. She received attention for her role in the 2009 Zombieland and became somewhat famous when she bagged the lead role in Easy A. However, according to Wikipedia, it was only in 2012 (when she bagged the role of Gwen Stacy in The Amazing Spider-Man) that she gained wider recognition.
Gal Gadot led a pretty interesting life before she made it as an actress. For example, at one point during her life she was crowned as Miss Israel. Furthermore, she also served as a combat instructor in Israel Defense Forces. According to Wikipedia, Gadot's first international role was that of Gisele Yashar in the 2009 action film Fast & Furious. She later reprized this role in the film's sequels. However, it took her seven more years to gain the status of an A-lister: it was only in 2016 that she bagged the role of Wonder Woman.
Emily Blunt has been involved in the acting industry ever since the early 2000s. For example, back then she was featured in the miniseries Henry VIII as well as in films such as Boudica and My Summer of Love. However, it was not until the late 2000s that she found herself starring in lead roles. Today, most of us tend to associate Blunt with movies such as A Quiet Place, Mary Poppins Returns, The Girl on the Train, and The Devil Wears Prada (Wikipedia).
Blake Lively's filmography is not that extensive, but that makes sense seeing how she only began acting in the mid 2000s (although her first role was that of Trixie or Tooth Fairy in the 1998 film Sandman according to Wikipedia). In terms of film, we tend to associate Lively with The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, A Simple Favor, Green Lantern, The Shallows, and The Age of Adaline. However, she first rose to fame for her work on the little screen and to be more specific, for her role of Serena van der Woodsen in the teen drama series Gossip Girl.
As a teenager, Anne Hathaway was cast in the TV series Get Real. A couple of years later she landed her breakthrough role. The role was that of Mia Thermopolis in Disney's comedy The Princess Diaries. Hathaway's transition to adult roles happened in 2005 when she found herself cast in Brokeback Mountain and Havoc. Today, most of us link her to films such as The Devil Wears Prada, Ocean's 8, Love & Other Drugs, and The Dark Knight Rises (Wikipedia).
The Great Gatsby, Wildlife, An Education, Drive, Never Let Me Go, Far from the Madding Crowd, Pride & Prejudice, Suffragette, Inside Llewyn Davis, and Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps are just some of the films that can be found under Carey Mulligan's filmography.

For example, last year, in 2018, she was cast in the critically acclaimed crime miniseries Collateral (Wikipedia).
Martin Scorsese's biographical black comedy movie The Wolf of Wall Street was the film that turned Margot Robbie into the star that she is today.

She has since starred in Focus, I, Tonya, The Legend of Tarzan, Terminal, and Mary Queen of Scots. Later this year she is due to appear in at least three movies, according to Wikipedia.
Today we tend to think of Ariana Grande as a singer and songwriter. That makes sense. After all, according to Wikipedia, Grande is one of the world's dominant contemporary artists, known for her amazing vocal range. However, before Grande made it in the music industry, she was known for her work on the little screen. Indeed, she first rose to fame thanks to her role of Cat Valentine in Nickelodeon's TV series Victorious which was on air between 2010 and 2013, as well as its spin-off Sam & Cat (on air between 2013 and 2014).
Natalie Portman made her film debut in the 1994 crime action thriller Leon: The Professional. At the time, she was only 13-years-old and found her newfound fame somewhat stifling and oppressive.

Over the years she has been featured in films such as Thor, Black Swan, Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace, Closer, Vox Lux, and V for Vendetta (Wikipedia).
Miley Cyrus is one talented woman. She is not only an ambitious actress but also a gifted singer. In terms of acting she is perhaps best known for The Last Song, Hannah Montana: The Movie, and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.

Seyfried did not actually make her film debut until the early 2000s, which is when she appeared in the iconic teen comedy Mean Girls. The film that made her big, however, was the 2008 musical Mamma Mia!
Bryce Dallas Howard?
Before Bryce Dallas Howard made it in Hollywood, she was busy starring in Broadway plays. According to Wikipedia, it was the play As You Like It that made her famous. You see, while playing the role of Rosalind in Shakespeare's famous play, she caught the eye of the director M. Night Shyamalan who cast her in the 2004 psychological thriller film The Village (which turned out to be her breakout film). Today she is linked to the Jurassic World franchise.
Reese Witherspoon was still a teenager when she made her film debut in the 1991 coming-of-age drama film The Man in the Moon. Pleasantville, Freeway, and Election are some of the other films that she was cast in during the 90s. However, it was not until the early 2000s, and to be more specific, 2001, that she gained international recognition. As most people are probably well aware, that was the year she bagged the role of Elle Woods in the iconic comedy Legally Blonde (Wikipedia).

For example, according to Wikipedia, she has released two books (her first book was published in 2016 and her second book was published in 2017).

However, that doesn't mean that her filmography is devoid of movies. In fact, Longoria has been cast in quite a few films over the years, including Overboard, John Wick, and Dog Days.
