15 Famous Couples Who Fell in Love While Acting Together
Work romance may not sound like a good idea to a lot of people, but the couples featured in this article can prove this belief wrong. Not only did these celebs start out as co-workers, but they are also still together to this day. And some of them have been together for so long, you might have forgotten that they met on set.
Bright Side believes that you can meet your soulmate anywhere and that making your love last is entirely possible. Let’s admire these cute couples together.
1. Josh Dallas and Ginnifer Goodwin
Ginnifer Goodwin and Josh Dallas were cast as Snow White and Prince Charming for the show Once Upon a Time, and their fairytale romance grew into a real one. The couple got engaged in 2013 and got married in 2014. They have 2 sons together.
2. Peter Krause and Lauren Graham
These 2 knew each other years before starring together on the show Parenthood, but they didn’t get together until they became co-stars. They started dating in 2010, and have kept their romance very private since. The couple is still going strong after nearly 12 years together.
3. Machine Gun Kelly and Megan Fox
The pair met on the set of Midnight in the Switchgrass in 2020 and started off as friends, as Fox was still married at that time. Her separation from her then-husband Brian Austin Green caused the rumors that she and Machine Gun Kelly were more than just friends. Their relationship got confirmed a short while later, and the couple announced their engagement in January 2022.
4. Freddie Prinze Jr. and Sarah Michelle Gellar
The couple originally met on the set of the horror movie I Know What You Did Last Summer, and had to spend a lot of time together off set, as Sarah Michelle Gellar didn’t have a driver’s license, so Freddie Prinze Jr. helped her out by giving her rides to and from the filming site. They became friends, but then started dating when they filmed their next project together — Scooby-Doo, which came out in 2002. The couple tied the knot that same year.
5. Eliza Taylor and Bob Morley
They started off as co-stars on the series The 100, but at some point, their friendship grew into something more. However, they decided to announce their relationship only after they got married in 2019, to their fans’ surprise. In February 2022, the couple announced that they are expecting their first child.
6. Stephen Moyer and Anna Paquin
These 2 are another example of an on-screen romance growing into real-life: Moyer played Paquin’s love interest in the series True Blood, and the sparks between them began during the audition! Stephen Moyer recalled that he knew he was going to spend the rest of his life with Anna Paquin even when they didn’t know each other very well, and he was right: the couple wed in 2010 and now have 2 kids together.
7. Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz
Rachel Weisz and Daniel Craig knew each other for a while before they starred together in the movie Dream House in 2010, but the sparks flew on set. They got married about a year later in a private ceremony. They have one daughter together.
8. Grace Gealey and Trai Byers
The pair met on set of the series Empire, and it might have been the case of love at first sight, as they got engaged the same year the show premiered — in 2015. They got married a year later in a private ceremony.
9. Kirsten Dunst and Jesse Plemons
The couple played sweethearts on the series Fargo, and fell in love outside of the set as well. Interestingly enough, Plemons was a big fan of Dunst before meeting her, and now he is engaged and has 2 kids with his favorite actress! The couple wants to marry in the near future, but has not found the time to do it yet.
10. Tuc Watkins and Andrew Rannells
The pair filmed the movie The Boys in the Band together and started dating shortly after. Rannells recalled that when he did not know Watkins super well, the thought that they would end up having a ’showmance’ popped up in his head — and he was right. 3 years later, this couple is still together.
11. Rami Malek and Lucy Boynton
Filming the Oscar-winning movie Bohemian Rhapsody brought these 2 together, and they are still going strong to this day. Aside from appearing on red carpets together, they keep their relationship private. But Malek made a romantic gesture when he received his Oscar for Best Actor: in his speech, he said, “Lucy Boynton, you’re the heart of this film. You are beyond immensely talented. You have captured my heart. Thank you so much.”
12. Jared Padalecki and Genevieve Padalecki (Cortese)
Jared Padalecki starred on the series Supernatural for about 15 years, and that’s where he met his future wife, Genevieve. The actress had a recurring role in the show starting in season 4. Before going on an actual date, they got to know each other for about 4 months. The couple tied the knot in 2010, and they have 3 kids together.
13. Zendaya and Tom Holland
Tom Holland and Zendaya are the latest duo to play Spider-Man and his love interest, Mary Jane. The rumors of them dating go as far back as 2016, when Spider-Man: Homecoming was being filmed, but they did not confirm their relationship until 2021 when the pair was spotted kissing. It is said that the couple were friends for a long time before things got romantic.
14. Michael J. Fox and Tracy Pollan
This duo first met on the set of Family Ties where they played each other’s love interests, but it’s their next joint project that made them fall in love with each other — they went on a date when filming Bright Lights, Big City a few years later. They got married in 1988 and have 4 kids together.
15. Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes
This famous couple rarely talks about their family life, but there are a few things that are known. They met on the set of the 2011 movie The Place Beyond the Pines and have been inseparable ever since. Although the couple is not married, they have 2 kids together. In an interview, Mendes said that before she met Gosling she didn’t want kids, but she changed her mind after they got together, as it made “sense for her to have not [just] kids, but his kids.”
