Love, as they say, is in the air. And Hollywood has made trillions of dollars because of it. There’s just something about watching two people become completely obsessed with each other that audiences find endlessly satisfying. But we aren’t the only ones who feel it, and sometimes the chemistry on screen appears real because it is. These are 10 Famous Actors Who Hooked Up With Their Co-stars.
Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes, The Place Beyond the Pines
In 2012’s The Place Beyond The Pines, the chemistry between Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes is so prevalent, it’s bound to steam up the inside of your screen. Director Derek Cianfrance tells the gritty story of a man dead set on providing for his family. After learning about the birth of his son, Gosling quits the carnival and gets himself a big boy job as a bank robber. It just so happens he’s one hell of a driver so it was the natural choice. In addition to the movie, Gosling and Mendes are a couple in real life, and even have two kids.
Kit Harrington and Rose Leslie, Game of Thrones
John Snow has been causing quite a stir these days, and is quickly turning into the most talked about character in Game of Thrones. And if you’re keeping up with the show, you know it’s for a good reason. But more than a few fans lost their collective shit when his lady-love, Ygritte, was killed off by the ruthless and cold-hearted George R.R. Martin- a man who is famous for destroying everything you love. There’s one thing he can’t kill though, and that’s love. Kit Harrington and Rose Leslie have been dating for real, on and off, since meeting on set.
Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan, Step Up
Before he was Magic Mike, Channing Tatum was dancing up a storm in a little movie called Step Up. In the wake of some poor decisions, his character Tyler ends up at a performing arts school. A troublemaker with a checkered past and a passion for dance, Tyler soon finds himself enamored with a student named Nora. And just as Tyler had a thing for Nora, Tatum was falling in love for real with the girl playing her; Jenna Dewan. But you might know her as Jenna Dewan Tatum. The two have been together for ten years, and married in 2013. There are entire blogs dedicated to the idea of “relationship goals”, and these two always make the list.
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, Mr. and Mrs. Smith
Brangelina is a certified Hollywood power-couple, but it hasn’t always been rainbows and sunshine. The tale of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s romance actually started off a little rocky. The actors met while working on the film Mr. and Mrs. Smith, and the rumor mill began to churn. Pitt was in a relationship with Jennifer Aniston at the time, and it didn’t take long for rumblings of infidelity to start. Shortly after the actor separated from Aniston, he began a relationship with his Mr. and Mrs. Smith co-star, which was huge news at the time. The couple is now known for their human rights advocacy work, have six children, and got married in 2014.
Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively, Green Lantern
Opening to largely negative reviews, 2011’s Green Lantern was panned by audiences for its liberal use of CGI. Especially when it came to the titular character’s suit. But all was not lost. And one really great thing happened as a result: the real life romance of Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds. Sure, there was some time in between those events, but it’s the end result we’re interested in. Both on screen and off, the two make a really great team. Which is a good thing, since the two had their first child in December of 2014.
