15 On-Screen Couples Who Got Together In Real Life

It’s no secret that we T.V. lovers sometimes blur the line when it comes to fantasy and reality regarding the stars of our favorite movies and T.V. shows. It’s not uncommon for an actor to be confused with their character in real life. And it’s also pretty common for fans to hope for a real life connection between on-screen couples. But sometimes, that wish comes true and co-stars end up romancing off-screen. Heck! Some even make a habit of it.

15 Ginnifer Goodwin and Josh Dallas

These two love birds play Snow White and Prince Charming on ABC’s hit series Once Upon a Time. It seems Josh really is Prince Charming, at least in Ginnifer’s eyes. The two have both admitted to feeling an “immediate connection” the moment they met in 2011. So, it’s no surprise things turned romantic shortly afterwards. The couple welcomed their first child together , a baby boy, in May of last year. How’s that for a happy ending?!

14 Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie

Brad and Angelina’s romance was one of the most controversial couplings of the 2000s. Not because the two are an odd pairing (uh, hello Angelina and Billy Bob Thorton), but because of the couple’s timing. During filming of Mr. & Mrs. Smith, it seems that Brad and Angelina became close. The problem? Brad was still married to actress Jennifer Aniston at the time. Shortly after Jen and Brad announced their split, Brad and Angelina started appearing out and about together. And thus was Team Jen/Team Ang was born.

13 Brad Pitt and Gwyneth Paltrow

Before there was Brad and Jen, before there was Brangelina, there was Brad and Gywn. It seems Brad is another who has no problems finding a love connection on-set. Brad and Gwyneth met on the set of the movie Seven. The two dated for three years in the 90s before ending things. Gwyneth admits to feeling responsible for the fall of the relationship saying “I just made a big mess of it.”

12 Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez


If you’ve forgotten these two dated, I’m surprised. The two were incredibly over exposed when it came to media coverage and paparazzi photos. Jennifer had a small role playing Ben’s wife in the movie Jersey Girl. The two were publically affectionate but eventually called it quits.

11 Jerry Ferrara and Jamie-Lynn Sigler

Did you know Turtle dated Jamie-Lynn Sigler in real life?! It seems this farfetched romance wasn’t so farfetched after all. The two kept their relationship on the D.L. but were linked in 2008. They split a little more than a year later in 2009.

10 Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner


Ben fell for another “Jen” not too long after dating Ms. Lopez. He met Jennifer Garner on the set of Daredevil and the two seemed to hit it off right away. They dated, married, and had three children together before announcing their split. The two are still friends and continue to co-parent their children.

9 Milo Ventimiglia and Alexis Bledel


Milo and Alexis met on the set of the mother/daughter hit show, Gilmore Girls. As their characters Jess and Rory began taking their relationship from flirty friends to full blown baes, Milo and Alexis seemed to be doing the same off camera as well. The two dated for about four years before calling it quits. It’s unclear what happened between the two, although, according to Gawker, the couple was seen having a nasty public argument shortly before announcing their breakup.

8 Milo Ventimiglia and Hayden Panettiere


Milo seems to have some luck when it comes to finding love at the workplace. Not too long after his breakup from Bledel, he began his role as Peter Petrelli in Heroes. He met Hayden Panettiere on-set and the two dated for about two years before ending the relationship. Rumors swirled that the 12 year age gap was to blame. Whatever the cause, the two are said to be on friendly terms.

7 Jenna Dewan Tatum and Channing Tatum

In 2006, the world watched as Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan brought some heat to the screen in (the original) Step Up. Both displayed incredible dancing skills and there was no doubt chemistry between the two young actors on-screen. Things were apparently heating up off-screen as well. The two quickly started dating and stayed together through the insane growth of Channing’s blossoming career. The couple married in 2009 and welcomed their daughter, Everly Tatum, in 2013.

6 Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively

Could there be a better looking couple out there? Seriously. Heartthrob Ryan Reynolds must’ve been taken with Blake’s beauty on the set of Green Lantern. And although the movie didn’t do so well (or well at all,) the couple definitely felt sparks while filming and began dating shortly after. The two married in 2012 and welcomed their baby girl in January of this year.

5 Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth

Wild child Miley Cyrus met hunky Liam Hemsworth on the set of The Last Song in 2010. Miley openly admits to being attracted to Liam right away. Many thought this young love was the real deal when years later the couple announced their engagement. Sadly, the two split in 2013. Rumors are still swirling today that the couple may reunite, but we have yet to hear anything confirming that news from either camp.

4 Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson

Twilight brought us a buff Taylor Lautner, a new place to travel on vacation (the Quileute Indian Reservation in Forks is a real place,) and the Kristen/Robert drama. The two seemed like a happy couple for years: Meeting on-set and dating up until the last film in the series, however, things went awry when Kristen was caught cheating with director Rupert Sanders. There were stories of the two trying to reconcile, however, that didn’t last long and the two split in 2012.

3 Chad Michael Murray and Sophia Bush

Chad Michael Murray played the good guy on the teen drama One Tree Hill but may have been the bad guy when it came to his relationship with a certain brunette bombshell. While his character was going after Payten, it seems Chad was focused on Sophia. After meeting in 2003, the two got married in 2005…and divorced in December of 2006. Murray allegedly cheated on Bush with his House of Wax co-star, Paris Hilton (Really…) Murray and Bush continued working together on the set of One Tree Hill for years later in which Bush explains, “…at the end of the day, my job is my priority. And so I think at the end of it, it really let me just let go of it."

2 Leighton Meester and Sebastian Stan


On the now pop culture classic TV series Gossip Girl, Carter Baizen may have gone after both Blair and Serena, but in real life, actor Sebastian Stan dated Leighton Meester. The couple split in 2010 after having a bit of a rocky relationship. Meester was reportedly “really sad” over the breakup but says she definitely learned from it.

1 Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis


There’s never been anything quite like that hysterical, passionate, and oh-so dysfunction relationship we saw shared between That 70’s Show’s Jackie and Kelso. And while fans wished and waited for the two actors to get together in real life, it wasn’t until 2012 when the two were romantically linked. They got engaged and welcomed their daughter Wyatt in 2014 and married this year. Jackie and Kelso made it after all!Sources: popsugar.compopsugar.comcelebuzz.comusmagazine.com
