They may be inevitable… co-star relationships have been around about as long as television studios and movie sets. But is this the type of environment that creates lasting love or is it just a variation of reality TV: put two sexy people in a room together away from any current romantic ties for 70 hours a week and see what happens…. The plot is even thicker when the script requires kissing and sex scenes. No wonder some stars end up leaving their current relationship for a co-star.
The CW is no exception to co-star chemistry.
Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds met as co-stars while filming The Green Lantern but they just began dating 9 months ago. The couple is doing great and even purchased a country home, which they are renovating together!
AND of course we can’t forget about our favorite TVD stars! Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder are officially a couple in real life! This is one couple we definitely hope stays together. How cute!!
The CW is not the only place for romance to blossom. Here is a list of other stars who hooked up on the job:
Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield – Spiderman, Michael Fassbender and Nicole Beharie – Shame, Cory Monteith and Lea Michele – Glee, Rachel Weisz and Daniel Craig – Dream House, Matt Lapinskas and Shona McGarty– Eastenders, Dominic Cooper and Amanda Seyfried – Mamma Mia!, Kaley Cuoco and Johnny Galecki – The Big Bang Theory.
Johnny Depp left a 14-year relationship with Vanessa Paradis for The Rum Diary co-star Amber Heard.
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have been together for 7 years and are finally getting married. They hooked up shortly after co-staring in the film Mr. and Mrs. Smith.
Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson are the famous Twilight co-stars who have kept their relationship a secret for a loooong time. Fortunately for us the news is finally out! We suspect they kept it a secret to discourage any unwanted press, which in the past has managed to damage celebrity relationships. It’s gotta be stressful with all the paparazzi.
Rachel McAdams is no stranger to dating her co-stars. Ryan Gosling from The Notebook and Michael Sheen from Midnight in Paris have both had their shot with the star who gave an interview about her romances.
“A set may seem like a good place for romance, but I don’t think it’s very conducive; it’s too distracting. Every relationship I’ve had with a coworker has come after the fact, because you wind up actually spending a lot of time with those people promoting the movie.”
So there you have it. Keep your eyes open, there are sure to be more co-star romances in the near future.
