What's more fun than finding out your favorite onscreen couple are together in real life? Other than a trip to Six Flags, pretty much nothing. Here are a bunch of actors who met while playing couples in movies or on TV who fell in love and got married in real life. 

1. Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys

It's no secret that Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys play a married couple on their show The Americans, but they managed to deflect rumors of an offscreen relationship until appearing together publicly in 2014. While they may not have gone to Weddingville yet, it was just revealed that they are indeed on their way to Babytown

2. Ginnifer Goodwin and Josh Dallas

Fans of the ABC show Once Upon A Time were understandably ecstatic when Ginnifer Goodwin and Josh Dallas, who play characters romantically involved in two different worlds (it's complicated) on the show, took that fairytale love into real life. Goodwin has said that she felt an "immediate connection" with Dallas when they first met on the show in 2011. They married in April 2014, a month before Goodwin gave birth to their first son, Oliver, and they're currently expecting their second child.

3. Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan Tatum

Ah, the couple that everyone loves, that no one wants to get divorced, but if they did get divorced they'd be the hottest single people on the market and everyone could go back to imagining they maybe at least have a chance. Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewam met in 2006 while making Step Up, where they danced their way into each other's hearts on screen, and then kept dancing off set and down the aisle in 2009. They stopped dancing long enough to have daughter Everly in 2013, but then got right back to it, recently going head to head on Spike's Lip Sync Battle

4. Alexis Bledel and Vincent Kartheiser

Although their onscreen relationship was doomed from the start (she played his mistress on the AMC hit Mad Men), Alexis Bledel and Vincent Kartheiser's resulting offscreen relationship took them down the aisle in a small, intimate wedding in August 2014.  

5. Sienna Miller and Jude Law

Brits Sienna Miller and Jude Law met on the set of the 2004 remake of Alfie, fell in love and went as far as getting engaged, until Miller broke off the engagement in 2005 when she found out Law had been having an affair with the nanny of his children with ex-wife Sadie Frost (the original Nannygate). They got back together, but ended it for good on friendly terms in 2009.

6. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt

The infamous Brangelina! Already huge stars, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt met during the filming of the 2005 movie Mr. and Mrs. Smith; Jolie has even remarked that "Not a lot of people get to see a movie where their parents fell in love.” Pitt was married to Jennifer Aniston at the time, leading, of course, to the Divorce Heard 'Round the World. Jolie and Pitt have six kids together (three adopted and three biological) and Pitt finally made an honest woman of Jolie by marrying her in France in 2014.

7. Courtney Cox and David Arquette

Friends alum Courtney Cox met David Arquette while making Scream (she played a reporter and he a goofy deputy sheriff, who end up falling for each other) and the chemistry was so scary good that they married in 1999 and had daughter Coco in 2004. Unfortunately they divorced in 2010, but they remain close friends.

When Blake Lively met her future husband Ryan Reynolds on the set of the DC Comics movie Green Lantern, he was already married to Scarlett Johannson. But after playing love interests in the movie, and after his divorce, Lively and Reynolds married in 2014 and had daughter James the same year. 

9. Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher 

Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher played teenage sweethearts on FOX's That '70s Show (get ready to go "awww": he was the first man she ever kissed!), but it wasn't until many years later that they actually got together. When the romance started in 2012, Kutcher wasn't yet officially divorced from Demi Moore, but he and Kunis had daughter Wyatt in 2014 and and married in 2015.
