Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez Jump Way Up in This Years Hottest Couples Rankings

 (Pacific Coast News)more pics » Olivier Martinez and Halle Berry (Pacific Coast News) While Olivier Martinez and Halley Berry's relationship has not been without its share of drama thanks to Berry's ex, that hasn't stopped them from getting serious. And their climb up the ranks of this year's list of 100 Hottest Couples is evidence of that.

Although last year had people thinking Berry was simply rebounding with her French co-star, the skeptics were wrong because now they're engaged! Perhaps the third marriage will be the charm for the gorgeous actress. It seems like cultivating their budding relationship (and fighting Berry's ex in court) were all the couple had time for last year. She only had a small role in New Year's Eve, while Martinez didn't star in any films in 2011. They'll join forces on the big screen in Dark Tide in a few months, but let's face it, the hotness factor is carrying these two.

For those curious about our process of ranking these couples, this year we've refined our definition of "hotness" to rank 100 celebrity couples using the following criteria: Staying Power, Popularity, Success, and Attractiveness. The resulting list includes hot pairings made up of models, singers, actors, ex-wrestlers, reality stars, and more. While the hottest couple of them all, Beyonce and Jay-Z, has been on our list for four years now, 24 of these famous duos also made their debut. Check out the entire feature here.
