If there’s one thing we love more than watching a movie starring two hot leads, it’s watching a movie starring two hot leads who are totally dating IRL. Here are 19 of the hottest celebrity couples to ever meet on set.
The tabloids rejoiced when these two hotties teamed up for 2005’s “Mr. and Mrs. Smith.” At the time, Pitt was married to Jennifer Aniston but soon enough, that marriage was over and he and Jolie have been an item ever since, globe-trotting and raising their six kids. The pair made it official when they tied the knot in 2014. This year’s “By the Sea” is only their second time co-starring as lovers, and all we have to say is: what took you so long?
Bogart, 45, was on his third marriage when he met 19-year-old Bacall on the classic “To Have & Have Not” in 1944. They wed the next year; the marriage lasted until his death in 1957. They costarred again in “The Big Sleep,” “Dark Passage” and “Key Largo.”
The pair had previously met on Hanks’s TV show “Bosom Buddies,” but struck up a romance as co-stars in 1985’s “Volunteers.” Twenty-plus years and two kids later, they’re still going strong. (Hanks’s kids, Colin & Elizabeth, are from his previous marriage to Samantha Lewes.)
Nothing good came out of the giant flop that was 2011’s “Green Lantern,” except that the two leads tied the knot shortly after. Reynolds had previously been married to Scarlett Johansson; Lively had dated Leonardo DiCaprio and “Gossip Girl” co-star Penn Badgley. Reynolds and Lively welcomed a daughter in 2015. Aww.
One of the biggest Hollywood scandals occurred in 1962, when bombshell Taylor, then married to husband No. 4, Eddie Fisher, and “Cleopatra” love interest Burton were photographed off-set looking very cozy. They both divorced their spouses and married in 1964. They divorced in 1974. They remarried in 1975 but called it quits for good in 1976.
The politically minded couple met during the steamy baseball comedy “Bull Durham” in 1988. Two children, two Oscars (one each) and 21 years later, they unexpectedly split in 2009. She had previously been married to “Fright Night” star Chris Sarandon.
While moviegoers mocked Affleck’s 2003 superhero turn in “Daredevil” it did lead to one of Hollywood’s favorite, most down-to-earth couples. Sure, he nearly married his “Gigli” co-star Jennifer Lopez first. Guess he has a thing for Jennifers? Affleck and Garner wed in the Caribbean in 2005; but divorced in 2015.
Beatty had been one of Hollywood’s most notorious playboys who would seemingly never settle down when he and Bening starred in the 1991 mob saga “Bugsy.” They married in 1992, had four children, and have now been married more than 20 years.
Witherspoon considered Phillippe her “birthday present” when he came to her 21st birthday party. They were already a couple by the time they starred together in “Cruel Intentions.” They married in 1999 and had two children but divorced in 2007. She’s now remarried.
Their romance began on the set of the 1996 horror film “Scream.” By the time “Scream 3” came out in 2000, they were married; daughter Coco was born in 2004. They separated in 2010 and divorced in 2012.
Their onscreen romance in the 1997 futuristic thriller “Gattaca” led to marriage in 1998 and two kids. They divorced in 2005. She had previously been married to Gary Oldman, who had a small part in her 1990 film “Henry & June.”
Fans of rom-com sweetheart Ryan were shocked when photos surfaced of her kissing her “Proof of Life” costar Crowe in 2000: What they didn’t know is that her marriage to Dennis Quaid (whom she’d met while making 1987’s “Innerspace”) was essentially over. The relationship was short-lived; Crowe married old Aussie flame Danielle Spencer in 2003 and Ryan dated John Mellencamp for several years.
Their onscreen marriage in 2005’s “Brokeback Mountain” was a sham, since Ledger’s character was in love with another man, but their real-life romance lasted three years and produced daughter Matilda. They split just one year before Ledger’s untimely death in 2008.
MacGraw was married to her “Love Story” producer, Robert Evans, when she began an affair with McQueen on the set of 1972’s “The Getaway.” She and the action star married in 1973 but divorced in 1978. McQueen remarried in 1980, the same year he died of cancer.
The two Spanish actors first met while filming the sexy comedy “Jamon, Jamon” in 1992. Their romance ignited when they re-teamed for “Vicky Cristina Barcelona” in 2007. They married in 2010, and Cruz gave birth to their second child in 2013. (She also had a three-year relationship with Tom Cruise after they co-starred in “Vanilla Sky.”)
Twi-hards swooned when it became apparent that the passion between Bella and Edward wasn’t just acting on the part of KStew and RPattz. Their relationship survived nearly the whole series, beginning with “Twilight” in 2008, only to crash and burn when Stewart was snapped kissing director Rupert Sanders in 2012. After a brief reconciliation, both have moved on.
This unlikely couple met while making the 1990 thriller “Flatliners.” Their engagement ended when he reportedly stepped out with a stripper: She responded by fleeing with his BF, Jason Patric. After making 1992’s “The Player,” she briefly married her co-star, country singer Lyle Lovett. She’s now married to Danny Moder, a cinematographer on her 2001 movie “The Mexican.”
They got hot and heavy in 2011’s “The Rum Diary,” so when they confirmed they were dating in real life, no one was very surprised. The two are now married, following Depp’s split with long-time love Vanessa Paradis. One of Depp’s exes, Winona Ryder, has called the relationship “inappropriate” since Depp is 52 and Heard is 29.
Gotta love a man in tights: Stone and Garfield fell for each other while making 2012’s “The Amazing Spider-Man” and dated on and off for four years before announcing their breakup. But rumor has it their most recent breakup is just a publicity stunt. How very dare!
