From Reel to Real: Movie Couples Who Brought Their Romance Off Screen

Movie Couples Who Fell In Love in Real Life 2

Don’t you just love it when movie couples show great chemistry? Their characters are so convincing that we ourselves are convinced that they actually have feelings for each other. Well, lucky for fans if the on-screen chemistry would bloom into a real life relationship. Just these celebrities who made it real. Sometimes the relationship lasts, sometimes it ends badly. But at least we got to see it happen even for a while. It appears that it’s easy to be developed on the set because a lot of Hollywood stars have dated their co-stars. Let’s check  out some of the best-known couples.

12. Shia LeBeouf and Megan Fox

Transformers in case you live under a rock, one of the best-known box office movies and these two stars became a hot item. While they didn’t actually date, the celebs did hook up while filming. Shia LeBeouf and Megan Fox’s characters played friends-turned-lovers, Sam and Mikelea. We guess it happened in real life too because, in an interview with Details, Shia admitted to sleeping with his co-star. It created a lot of suspicions though because people thought that Megan cheated on her husband, Brian Austin Green. Shia’s response “I don’t know.” Always the denial game.

11. Taylor Lautner and Taylor Swift

When Taylor Swift made her acting debut in the film Valentine’s Day she and co-star Taylor Lautner immediately clicked. The two Taylor’s were dubbed as Taylor Squared and began dating shortly after they started filming together. This was way back when Taylor Swift had a “good girl” image. Now we know how quickly she moves on from one guy to another.

10. Penélope Cruz and Javier Bardem

Now this celebrity couple has a happier story. Javier and Penelope worked together in the film Vicky Cristina Barcelona in 2008. They’ve been inseparable ever since. But before that, they’ve already worked together in the film Jamon, Jamon back in 1992. Their love story took 16 years in the making! They secretly tied the knot in 2013 and are still happily married with two beautiful children.

 9. Johnny Depp and Winona Ryder

Johnny is famous for playing eccentric movie characters. These two celebs met on the set of the movie Edward Scissorhands. The film instantly became a classic. But the two already met before the film at the Great Balls of Fire! premiere. They started dating shortly after and Johnny proposed to Winona but they only ended up staying together for 3 years. He even had a tattoo on his arm saying “WINONA FOREVER” but changed it to “WINO FOREVER” after breaking up.

8. Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth

These two young stars met on the set of The Last Song and had sparks right away.  Their relationship wasn’t easy, though, and they were an again and off again couple. Then they finalized their relationship when they called off their engagement. After that, Miley started to get wild. Now, we have news that the two celebs have patched things up and are together again. We can never tell with these two.

7. Tom Cruise and Penélope Cruz

Tom Cruise may be one of the hottest actors, but his religion seems to be getting in the way of his love life. After his marriage ended with Nicole Kidman, he started dating his Vanilla Sky co-star, Penélope Cruz. Their relationship lasted only for 3 years and it wasn’t long before he moved on to Katie Holmes. In a magazine article, it was said that the reason why Penélope and Tom broke up was because the actress refused to convert to Scientology. What’s more interesting was the fact that some sources say that the Church of Scientology tried to “hire” a new girlfriend for him!

6. Ryan Phillippe and Reese Witherspoon

Ryan Phillippe and Reese WitherspoonThey used to be America’s favorite couple. Reese met Ryan on her 21st birthday and was engaged by the time they starred in the movie Cruel Intentions. The stars got married in South Carolina in 1999 and had two kids together. Unfortunately, in 2006, Reese filed for divorce, with the reason irreconcilable differences. We thought they would grow old together but like they say nothing lasts forever. Especially in Hollywood!

5. Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez

Ben wasn’t prepared for a high profile star like J.Lo. The two met on the set of Gigli but sadly the film got a lot of bad reviews. After the film, Bennifer was born and became a highly publicized couple. Ben got way more attention than he needed. Which he wasn’t used to. Bennifer lasted only 18 months, engagement included but the media pressure was too much and they eventually split.

4. Freddie Prinze Jr. and Sarah Michelle Gellar

The two first met on the set of the teen horror film I Know What You Did Last Summer and became a couple shortly after then. They worked together again in Scooby-Doo as the groovy couple Daphne and Fred. They were already married then so their on-screen chemistry was spot on. They are one of the rare Hollywood couples who lasted long. They may have lied low in their appearances but they are happily living in L.A. with their two children.

3. Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds

Well, aren’t they a happy couple? Like genuinely happy, which is a rare sight in Hollywood. Ryan started dating Blake after the production of the film The Green Lantern. They two have been a Hollywood IT couple ever since! Ryan and Blake had a private ceremony in South Carolina that the paparazzi seemed to have missed big time. They now have a lovely daughter and another one on the way. They’re one busy family!

2. Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner

Looks like Ben has a thing for Jennifers. Unlike Bennifer, this version of Ben and Jen lasted more than that. Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck became a thing after they starred in the superhero film, Daredevil. They tied the knot in 2005 and had 3 children together. Although they announced their divorce, they are still seen together publicly. Hopefully, they are able to patch things up. 

1. Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan-Tatum

They are one of Hollywood’s favorite couples. Jenna is a lucky girl because Channing is one of the most desired actors in Hollywood. These were clearly made for each other! We are just so inspired by their relationship. Channing and Jenna met on the set of Step Up in 2006 and have been a happy couple ever since! They got engaged in Maui in 2008 and a year later, were married in Malibu, California. They now have a beautiful daughter.

We can’t blame these celebs for falling for their co-stars. After all, they spend a lot of time together and sometimes even get intimate for their roles. But even if some of these relationships didn’t last as long as we’ve wanted at least we were able to see them together as themselves. For the couples who we’re able to last long, hopefully they keep their flame burning.
