The on-screen relationships that led to off-camera romances
Workplace romances aren’t unheard of in the office so who’s to say it can’t happen in Hollywood? Here’s a list of actors whose on-set chemistry led to real life relationships and although many were fleeting, some blossomed into marriages that are still going strong today.
Miley Cyrus & Liam Hemsworth
Miley met Liam in 2009 when he starred as her love interest on the set of The Last Song. Though the couple broke up in 2013, they eventually got back together in 2016 and finally said “I do” this past December.
Rose Leslie & Kit Harington
After meeting in 2012 on the set of HBO fantasy series “Game of Thrones”, this couple’s on-screen love blossomed into a real-life relationship that led to them tying the knot in Scotland in June 2018.
Freddie Prinze Jr. & Sarah Michelle Gellar
Freddie and Sarah are the longest lasting couple on the list having been together since they met in 1997 while filming I Know What You Did Last Summer. The couple got married in 2002 and share two children together.
Ginnifer Goodwin & Josh Dallas
It doesn’t get more romantic than falling in love with a man who literally plays your Prince Charming, but that’s exactly what happened when these two met on the set of “Once Upon A Time”. The couple were married in 2014 and have been living happily ever after with their two children ever since.
Stephen Moyer & Anna Paquin
The supernatural thriller “True Blood” is responsible for getting these two co-stars together! Stephen met Anna in 2008 while starring as her vampire lover on the hit show. He decided to put a ring on it two years later in 2010 and the doting couple now have 6 year old twins together.
Kristen Stewart & Robert Pattinson
Stephen isn’t the only vampire to have fallen for his human love interest! Kristen and Robert met while filming Twilight in 2008 and were together until 2012 when Kristen was caught having a shocking affair with the married director of her film Snow White and the Huntsman. I guess you could say she fell in love on a movie set, twice!
Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt
Brad and Angelina fell in love while filming Mr. and Mrs. Smith though Brad was married to Jennifer Aniston at the time. He went public with his romance four months after splitting from Jennifer and went on to have six children with Angelina during their 12 year relationship. In 2016, the couple announced they were separating and sadly have been going through an ugly divorce and custody battle ever since.
Johnny Galecki & Kaley Cuoco
Kaley Cuoco and Johnny Galecki of “Big Bang Theory” began dating off screen and were together for 2 years before deciding to go their separate ways. Despite the split, the couple remain good friends and ironically their on-screen characters are now married to one another. Johnny was even in attendance at Kaley’s real-life wedding to Karl Cook in June of last year.
Rachel McAdams & Ryan Gosling
It’s often cited as the most romantic movie of all time so it should come as no surprise that the on-screen romance of The Notebook came to life off-screen as well! Rachel and Ryan fell for each other on set in 2004 and were together for 3 years before sadly breaking up in 2007.
Channing Tatum & Jenna Dewan
While co-starring with Jenna Dewan in the 2006 hit Step Up, Channing Tatum had no idea he had been cast alongside his future wife, but neither could deny that their chemistry on set needed further exploring. The couple dated and were married in 2009. They had one daughter together 4 years later, but sadly announced their separation in April 2018.
