10 Celebrity Couples Who Unexpectedly Found Love on Set
The big screen has allowed us to witness some of the most beloved movie couples, such as Rose and Jack in Titanic, or Allie And Noah in The Notebook. However, sometimes love stories can also develop in the actors’ real life and go beyond the script.
In this article, we’ve compiled 10 celebrity couples that met while working on set and have stayed together throughout the years.
1. Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling
The couple met in 2011 while working on the movie, The Place Beyond the Pines. Shortly after filming ended, Gosling and Mendes were seen together at Disneyland and Paris.
3 years later, the pair welcomed Esmeralda, their first child. In 2016, Eva gave birth to their second daughter, Amada. Although they’re one of the most beloved Hollywood couples, they’ve opted to keep their family life private.
2. Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds
Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds met each other on the set of the film, Green Lantern, in 2010, in which they both co-starred. However, they didn’t become a couple until 2011. In an interview, Reynolds revealed how their romantic relationship began. “We were buddies for a long time, which I think is the best way to have a relationship, to start as friends,” he confessed.
The pair have been together ever since. They have 3 daughters and are expecting a fourth child.
3. Kirsten Dunst and Jesse Plemons
The couple met on set in 2015 while performing as a married couple in the acclaimed series, Fargo. Although they didn’t become a couple in real life right away, Jesse Plemons revealed that the “spark” was there. “I knew that she would be in my life for a long time,” he said in an interview.
At the same time, Kirsten Dunst confessed that they bonded over the fact that they were child stars. “We laugh about the fact that we were 2 child actors, and we both made it out okay,” she said.
4. Sarah Michelle Gellar and Freddie Prinze Jr.
The duo, who has been together for over 20 years, met in 1997 while working on the set of I Know What You Did Last Summer. But just like with other Hollywood couples, their romantic relationship began a few years after filming wrapped and after they had the accidental opportunity to get to know each other a bit more. “One day, I gave her a ride to the gym. We talked on the way up, and she was a cool chick,” Freddie Prinze Jr. revealed.
5. Ginnifer Goodwin and Josh Dallas
This couple’s love story looks exactly like a fairy tale, as Ginnifer Goodwin and Josh Dallas met for the first time in 2011 on the set of the series, Once Upon a Time, in which they performed as Snow White and Prince Charming. Around a year later, the couple made their romantic relationship public.
6. Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly
The couple met while filming the indie flick, Midnight in the Switchgrass, in 2020 and were seen together not long after that.
Since then, it has been nothing but love for the Hollywood duo. So far, some of the pair’s sweet memories include Fox appearing in one of Kelly’s music videos, the couple making their relationship public on social media, and MGK proposing to Fox in 2022.
7. Lucy Boynton and Rami Malek
Lucy Boynton and Rami Malek met in London while working on the acclaimed film, Bohemian Rhapsody, in which they played the roles of the former couple, Mary Austin and Freddie Mercury, respectively.
In February 2019, the Hollywood duo attended the Oscars together, where Malek kissed Boynton in public before he went up to the stage to receive his Academy Award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role in the same film. In his speech, he praised his partner by saying, “Lucy Boynton, you’re the heart of this film. You are beyond immensely talented. You have captured my heart. Thank you so much.”
8. Natalie Portman and Benjamin Millepied
A year later, their relationship became even more official as they got engaged. After their first child was born, the duo got married in California, and since then, they’ve remained together traveling around the world and adding one more child to their family.
9. Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher
Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher first met on the set of the series, That ’70s Show, in which they co-starred as a couple who had a very intermittent relationship. However, it wasn’t until 15 years later that they started dating in real life.
10. Alyson Hannigan and Alexis Denisof
The couple met on the set of the popular series, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, when they were filming the episodes for the 1999-2000 season, and around 4 years later, they got married in California.
