Like most people, I just love it when actors fall in love on set and carry out that romance in real life! It just warms my heart. Of course, not all of these relationships lasted causing some of us to end up needing anxiety disorder treatment. Take a look at the 18 superstar actors who blurred the lines of reality and fiction and fell in love on set.
Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth
The on again – off again relationship that is Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth is one that we eagerly watch! The couple met during filming the Nicholas Spark’s novel, ‘The Last Song’. Now while the two are currently taking things slow, it’s reported that Hemsworth wants to pop the question. We’re right behind you, Liam.
Rachel Bilson and Hayden Christensen
Most of us know Hayden Christensen by another name…Luke. That’s right, the young Star Wars actor himself would find himself on set in 2007 for film, Jumper where he meet his wife, Rachel Bilson. Bilson will always be ‘Summer’ to us from the hit show, The O.C., but she will also always be as the girl who stole Hayden’s heart. They are an adorable couple who have a beautiful daughter together. No treatment for anxiety needed here as they are still together and happily, may we add!
Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams
When I heard the news that Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams were together…I think I screamed of joy for about two full minutes. Watching them on set of the romantically beautiful film, The Notebook made me cry and laugh and scream and cry some more. Then knowing they were together in real life was like a fairy tale come true. Their relationship started off rocky but hey, that’s normal, they worked through it and were together for four years. Then tragically, the pair split and Gosling let McAdams for another co-star. (I know, I was peeved too but I quickly forgave him, at least we’ll always have The Notebook.)
Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes
Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes – just saying their name out loud causes me to blush. These two are red hot! Gosling and Mendes met on set of the film, The Place Beyond the Pines, which was a super weird movie but couples have met in weirder places then this. Anyways, in April 2016, the two had an adorable baby girl! We couldn’t be happier for the two crazy lovebirds and of course, their daughter is going to break some hearts when she gets older.
Rose Leslie and Kit Harington
Game of Thrones is one of the hottest TV shows out there, so what better place for co-stars Rose Leslie and Kit Harington to meet and fall in love? There were a lot of rumors surrounding their relationship and only recently, did the pair come out and confirm that they were in a relationship. We hope they’ll be happy together for years to come!
Blake Lively and Penn Badgley
Serena and Dan 4eva! Gossip Girl stars, Blake Lively and Penn Badgley, were as adorable on screen as they were off. The pair dated from 2007 to 2010 and they had some serious on screen chemistry, perhaps because they were in love off screen? Sadly, they did ultimately breakup which of course gave our girl, Lively, the opportunity to meet and marry future husband and daddy, Ryan Reynolds.
Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz
Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz are a bad a** couple, there is no denying that. The two met during filming The Dream House in 2010 and were married by 2011. Meanwhile, Craig is all over the spotlight as the super sexy James Bond and Rachel is unstoppable in whatever she does.
Johnny Galecki and Kaley Cuoco
The Big Bang Theory saw their two lead actors, Johnny Galecki and Kaley Cuoco, fall in love on set back in 2010. The two kept their relationship as quiet as they possibly could but would eventually break up after dating for two years. However, they’re still friends to this day and they carried on with show without any quarrels or anxiety self help needed.
Ginnifer Goodwin and Josh Dallas
Goodwin and Dallas met on set of Once Upon a Time in 2011, portraying the wonderful characters of Snow White and Prince Charming, who would go on to fall in love IRL. They didn’t keep their relationship under wraps like most other couples, they entered the public light almost right away!
Sarah Michelle Gellar & Freddie Prinze Jr.
These two are seriously one of favorite couples ever! Sarah Michelle Gellar & Freddie Prinze Jr. met back in 1997 on set of the film I Know What You Did Last Summer. They later co-starred in the 2000 flick, Scooby Doo Movie, where Gellar actually talked Freddie into taking on the role. Adorable. The pair married in 2002, have the cutest kids ever, and have dipped their feet into the world of baking and cooking.
Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux
Thank you to the film, Wanderlust, for blessing our girl, Jennifer Aniston with her amazing husband, Justin Theroux. It was a long time coming! Watching those two meet in 2011, get engaged a year later and eventually marry in 2015 is downright fantastic. We can only hope that little babies will be on the way soon, these two deserve it.
Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz
Knowing these two are still together warms my heart. Bardem and Cruz met on set in 2007 during filming, Jamon and were married by the time 2010 rolled around. Ever since, they’ve been super happy and even have two kids together. We’re so happy for the pair!
Michael C. Hall and Jennifer Carpenter
A Dexter romance? That’s right. Michael C. Hall and Jennifer Carpenter played adopted siblings on the show and fell in love! In 2008, they actually eloped and were together three beautiful years. Even though they divorced, they kept things amicable on set until the show’s end in 2013.
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt
Duh, of course these two icons were going to make this list. Mr. and Mrs. Smith is a bad a** action flick where our two leading actors met and fell in love. However, the couple were met with a lot of scrutiny as Pitt was with Jennifer Aniston at the time – but we all ultimately forgave them when we saw their love was true and pure. Bradgelina would go on to have 6 beautiful kids together, star in some pretty amazing films, conquer humanitarian missions and fall more deeply in love over the years. However, I hate to remind you but Bradgelina recently split and Jolie got full custody of all 6 kids. *FOREVER SOBBING*
Stephen Moyer and Anna Paquin
Stephen Moyer and Anna Paquin didn’t just met on set of the show, ‘True Blood’, they met during auditions for the show! How cute is that? The two dated for years before they hitched in 2010 and eventually had the prettiest twins ever.
Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart
Bella and Edward on and off screen, be still my heart! Former co-stars on the film series, Twilight, the two kept their relationship pretty quiet and were together up until 2014. Sadly, though, Stewart ending up cheating on Pattison and thus, the relationship ended.
Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck
Garner and Affleck are beyond adorable, I absolutely loved them in the film, Daredevil, and knowing that’s the film where they also fell in love in real life is just so wonderful. They got married pretty quick and had their son, Samuel, not so long after. Garner and Affleck have been together since 2003 but as of late, they are not on good terms. We aren’t sure if this is one relationship to pull through but here’s to hoping they do.
Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens
Like many, High School Musical, was one of those films you either loved or hated but there is no denying that Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens were adorable as a couple, on and off screen. The pair dated very publicly from 2006 until 2010. This was one couple we were all rooting for but sadly, it didn’t last.
