Co-worker romances are rarely a good idea. Sure, there are some real life "Jim and Pams" out there who got lucky finding true love at work, but for most of us, dipping your pen in the company ink isn't the best idea. That's why the phrase "Don't sh*t where you eat" is so popular. Also the phrase "don't dip your pen in the company ink" (although no one remembers pens you actually have to dip in ink anymore). Luckily for us, actors rarely take this advice. Here are 11 celebrity couples who got swept up in a show-mance and were totally doing it in real life (probably in their trailers).
1. Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher, That '70s Show.
This couple got married in 2015, but many years earlier they had played teenage sweethearts on FOX's That '70s Show. Adorbs alert: Ashton was the first man Mila ever kissed. (NOTE: They did not date at the time. Kunis actually lied about her age and was a minor when the show began. This made Ashton feel really weird kissing her on set, but that was many years ago.) After Ashton's split from Demi Moore, the pair reunited and even made a daughter named Wyatt.
Back when they were practically babies:
2. Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling, The Notebook.
Dang it! This real life romance didn't work out, but life would've been so perfect if it had (sorry, Eva Mendes). The Notebook is so romantic, these two couldn't help but fall in love IRL. This happened even though Ryan apparently hated Rachel initially, and wanted her removed from the film. Nothing a little French kissing in the rain couldn't fix.
Anything for an excuse to watch this clip again:
3. Leann Rimes & Eddie Cibrian, Northern Lights
Leanne and Eddie had an off-camera love affair while shooting the Lifetime movie Northern Lights. This wouldn't have been a big deal, if not for the fact that they were both married to other people at the time. Their infamous real-life cheating scandal provided enough drama for it's own Lifetime movie.
They told ABC news that they had no regrets about their love. Wonder if they had any about their acting?
4. Tori Spelling and Brian Austin Green, Beverly Hills 90210
To the delight of '90s kids everywhere, most of the costars of Beverly Hills 90210 went to bone-town in real life. Tori Spelling, aka Donna Martin, described her off-screen relationship with Brian Austin Green, aka David Silver, as a "teenage love story."
"He was a little bit of my everything," Spelling spilled on Lifetime's Celebrity Lie Detector (yes, that was a show). She described their onscreen vows during the series finale as "like, real." She continued, "we grew up together. I think I was always in love with Brian." By the way, she also got freaky with Jason Priestly, aka Brandon.
If that doesn't deepen your crush on Luke Perry, nothing will.
5. Michael C. Hall and Jennifer Carpenter, Dexter.
These two played brother and sister on the Showtime thriller Dexter, but in real life, they were knockin' boots big time. Their marriage only lasted for 3 years, but thanks to Netflix, they'll be siblings forever. Ew.
6. Miley Cyrus & Liam Hemsworth, The Last Song
Somewhere between being a child star and becoming stoner who humps stuffed animals, Miley Cyrus starred in the Nicholas Sparks romance The Last Song with Liam Hemsworth. The two found love off screen as well, and were engaged for a while before breaking up. Now, a few years later, they're maybe getting back together. They're possibly engaged again right now, depending on what day it is.
7. Channing Tatum & Jenna Dewan Tatum
Living the dream. The Magic Mike star and his wife first hooked up on the set of 2006 dance movie Step Up. "We were basically together on the movie," Tatum told Redbook. "It’s interesting now, because we can watch it and see; we can go, 'Oh, wow, that was actually our first real kiss.' As soon as the movie wrapped, we went back to L.A. and were together, and together ever since — never broken up."
They are sickeningly adorable.
8. Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds fell in love while filming Green Lantern.
Ryan and Blake met while filming the superhero movie The Green Lantern back in 2011. Despite the horrible flaming wreck of failure of Lantern (it even gets mocked in Deadpool), Reynolds can't regret his involvement when it led to his (new) wife. Reynolds was married to Scarlett Johansson at the time, but hey, it's Hollywood, so no biggie. His marriage to Blake is still going strong with baby #2 on the way.
It's still a very, very not-good movie.
9. Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz, Dream House
These two fell hard for each other while filming the horror movie Dream House in 2011. While neither of them liked the movie and both refused to promote it, they did like each other. A lot. Enough for Rachel to leave her husband, Daniel to leave his fiancé, and for them to get married as soon as the film wrapped, anyway. They are still married like five years later. Is that some kind of Hollywood record?
10. Sarah Michelle Gellar and Freddy Prinze Junior, I Know What You Did Last Summer.
This '90s power couple's marriage beat the odds. They first met on the set of 1997's I Know What You Did Last Summer and got hitched in 2002. If their love can survive a live action Scooby Doo movie, it can survive anything.
11. Brad and Angelina
Brad and Angie fell in love during the filming of the 2005 movie Mr. and Mrs. Smith. Jolie once said, "Not a lot of people get to see a movie where their parents fell in love.”
As we all know, Pitt was married to Jennifer Aniston at the time, leading to their divorce and roughly 2,976 magazine covers. It's no secret, things worked out for Jolie and Pitt. They now have six kids together and got married—in that order. (Jen's doing fine too in case you were wondering.)
Do you see the chemistry?
