How 15 Movie Couples Whose Onscreen Love Gave Us Goosebumps Changed

8 months ago

Time flies by so fast that we may not notice it. But just think that “The X-Files” is 30 years old this year, the first “Pirates of the Caribbean” movie came out 20 years ago, and we watched the first episodes of “Charmed” and “Sex and the City” 25 years ago, and you will realize how much has changed. Of course, the actors who portrayed our favorite characters have also aged during this time.
