Crazy for couples

H'wood pairs off in time for preems

Hollywood is used to splashy premieres, but the town’s curiosity — and the fans’ frenzy — hit record levels with the one-two punch of Warner Bros.’ “Batman Begins” and New Regency’s “Mr. & Mrs. Smith” on June 6-7.

Though “Gigli” and Benifer seemed to signal that the public had OD’d on star romances, it’s clear that the right chemistry can do the trick, with Tom Cruise-Katie Holmes and Brad Pitt-Angelina Jolie had the pros and non-pros going nuts.

Interesting PR lesson: One couple openly professes their romance, while some are skeptical; the other couple downplays any entanglements, which fans the flames of curiosity.
