13 star couples whose love came from screen to life
Famous actors and actresses are sometimes so true to life in their on-screen love that they can’t stop even after the shooting’s over — and before you know it, a happy cinema couple are already engaged in real life.
Bright Side is here with some romantic stories of cinema stars that prove the existence of love from the first take.
Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes
During shooting for The Place Beyond the Pines, the actor and actress fell so deeply for each other that they began dating for real. Although Eva Mendes had previously said that she was too selfish to be a mother, she and Gosling already have a daughter, Esmeralda Amanda, and they are thinking of having a second baby.
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie
Watching the couple’s on-screen relationship with fascination in Mr. and Mrs. Smith, fans were hoping to see the story continue beyond the stage — and they were not disappointed, because Pitt and Jolie have been together for 11 years already, and are raising six kids.
Johnny Depp and Amber Heard
Johnny fell madly in love with his movie mistress Amber Heard during the shooting of The Rum Diary, and soon left his family. Vanessa Paradis had been waiting for the Hollywood pirate’s proposal for 14 years, and all in vain, while his new passion got the ring very soon after the beginning of their love story. Depp is seemingly unperturbed by the age of his new wife — Heard is 23 years his junior. Love knows no boundaries, indeed.
Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan
They fascinated viewers by their magnificent dance in Step Up, and then decided they didn’t want to part. This couple cherish each other, and say that they still often watch romantic movies like Titanic together. Their daughter, Everly, has taken completely after her dad.
Joshua Dallas and Ginnifer Goodwin
This couple’s love story began in a proper fairytale: in Once Upon a Time, Snow White and Prince Charming show off their perfect relationship, and even share one heart between the two of them. And the actors are not far behind their onscreen roles — inbetween the shooting, Josh shields Ginnie from the wind, and she’s expecting a second son from him.
Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively
Having played Green Lantern’s beloved in the movie of the same title, beautiful Blake could not resist Ryan’s charms in real life either. Reynolds left Scarlet Johansson, Lively forgot all about Di Caprio, and now the two of them are happily married.
Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn
One of the sturdiest couples in Hollywood formed after the shooting of the legendary Overboard, where they played so well you couldn’t believe it wasn’t for real. They have been together for 33 years now, have a son, whilst Kate Hudson, Goldie’s daughter from her first marriage, calls Kurt ’Dad’. She’s sure that her mother is really lucky to have such a man at her side.
Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz
Their long friendship could have stayed as it had been if not for their common work on Dream House. To make a happy family, both of them had to end relationships that had lasted long, but in the end, it was worth it.
Liam Hemsworth and Miley Cyrus
These two lovebirds have everything like in the movies. They met each other on the set of The Last Song, where they played two romantic youngsters, and they translated those feelings into real life. Since then, Liam and Miley have broken up and got together again, and there’s word that their wedding will come soon enough.
Hayden Christensen and Rachel Bilson
For these guys, it all started with Jumper in 2008. The couple have been together for nine years and are raising a daughter, Briar Rose. Still, the former ’Darth Vader’ seems not to be in much of a hurry to propose to Rachel, staying with her simply as her ’boyfriend’. We just hope it won’t turn out to be as it was with Depp and Paradis.
Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz
These two couldn’t have ended their hot relationship in Vicky Cristina Barcelona just like this, and today this couple of Spaniards are one of the most exemplary families in Hollywood. Penelope is a happy mother, and Javier says he finally found peace of mind thanks to her.
Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson
These actors had known each other for years, but stronger feelings only sparked between them during their collaborative work on Volunteers. Rita left her fiance for this new love and waited for three years for Tom to divorce his wife. They’ve been through thick and thin together during the following 28 years of family life — Tom helped his wife fight off a serious disease, being at her side and supporting her all the time. This guys are a symbol of real Love.
Keith Harington and Rose Leslie
For two and a half seasons of Game of Thrones, everybody was tortured by a single question — who would win the heart of the impregnable Jon Snow? In the end, it happened to be Ygritte, a red-haired wildling girl. The fans were sure that this relationship would not be limited to the screen — and were right about that. Rose and Keith were seen together many times, sitting in a cafe or walking in a park, and on April 4, 2016, they visited Olivier Awards as a couple, tenderly holding each other’s hands. They seem to be glowing from inside out of their love for each other. We just hope their love story will be much happier than their series counterparts’ had.
