Great chemistry on screen can turn into love, but the infatuation with a co-star doesn’t always lead to a long term relationship. Some Hollywood couples who met on set last for a few months, others end in marriage and children.
Here are some of the most famous celebrity couples who met on set and started a romance that lasts to this day. From Brangelina to Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux, here are some of the most solid couples who started dating int their workplace.
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie
While both of them denied that they started their relationship on the set of “Mr. and Mrs. Smith”, while Brad was still married to Jennifer Aniston, there was plenty of on screen chemistry that proved they would make a great couple.
Angelina also met her first two husbands, Jonny Lee Miller and Billy Bob Thornton on set, and finally admitted that her and Brad fell in love on set. “By The Sea”, their second collaboration, directed by Jolie, will be released in 2015.
Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz
007 and Rachel Weisz are also one of the celebrity couples who met on set. After falling in love while shooting the psychological thriller “Dream House”, both ended long term relationships to be together. Weisz divorced director Darren Aronosky, while Daniel Craig broke off his seven year engagement to Satsukio Mitchell. The two married in 2011, in a very intimate ceremony.
Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield
After meeting on the set of “The Amazing Spider-Man”, Andrew Garfield pursued Emma and they make one of the cutest celebrity couples. “Throughout shooting, it was wild and exciting. I couldn’t help but try to stay with her, keep pace with her, and not let her get away. Like an animal preying on a smaller animal, but a wily smaller animal,” Garfield told Teen Vogue.
Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes
Hey girl, did you know Eva Mendes is the third actress Ryan Gosling dated while shooting a movie together? After falling for Rachel McAdams on the set of “The Notebook” and Emma Stone while shooting “Crazy, Stupid, Love”, Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes became one of the celebrity couples who met on set. Unlike those other relationships, they seem to be in it for the long haul and have a daughter together.
Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck
After Bennifer imploded as “Gigli” bombed, Ben Affleck turned to his “Daredevil” co-star. Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck had already met on the set of “Pearl Harbor”, but it was the Marvel movie that led to their relationship and marriage, which he defined as “work” during his Oscars acceptance speech. Not really romantic, but Ben did appologize afterwards.
Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan
Some celebrity couples who met on set weren’t big stars at the time. “Step Up”, the dance movie that was Channing Tatum’s big break also brought him together with his wife Jenna Dewan, and the two have a daughter together.
Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively
While “The Green Lantern” wasn’t considered a critical or box office success, the movie brought together Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds. After marrying in 2012, they had their first child, a daughter in December 2014.
Johnny Depp and Amber Heard
While many celebrity couples who met on set were in other relationships at the time, Depp and Heard were both single while shooting “The Rum Diary”. The actor had split from Vanessa Paradis, his partner of 14 years, and the new relationship made him consider marriage again. Heard and Depp got engaged in December 2013 and married in February 2015.
Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem
They first met on the set of “Jamón, Jamón”, a 1992 Spanish film, but the romance between Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz only started while they were shooting “Vicky Cristina Barcelona”. After a wedding in the Bahamas, they welcomed their first child, Luna.
Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux
The actress has been part of many celebrity couples who met on set, but the only one that seems to be headed for a wedding is her relationship with Justin Theroux. They met while shooting “Wanderlust” and have been together since.
