  • Emma Stone & Andrew Garfield


    After meeting on the set in 2010 for their roles as Gwen Stacy and Peter Parker in The Amazing Spider-Man, Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield became a beloved celebrity couple later in 2011, making several charming appearances together in interviews, on the red carpet, and in public. Sadly, rumors of trouble in paradise hit them in the summer of 2015; it seems that the duo broke up in October.

  • Blake Lively & Ryan Reynolds


    Sometimes flops can result in great things. Gossip Girl actress Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds first met on the set of Green Lantern in 2010, but at the time, Lively was dating her co-star Penn Badgley and Reynolds was married to Scarlett Johansson. Shortly after Reynolds’s divorce was finalized in May 2011, dating rumors swirled. By August 2012, they had tied the knot, and in late 2014, they had a daughter.

  • Jennifer Garner & Ben Affleck


    Although Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck met in the 2001 film Pearl Harbor, they fell in love on the set of 2003’s Daredevil. By 2005, they were married and quickly became one of the most beloved couples in Hollywood. But after 10 years of marriage, the two have called it quits, and thanks to Affleck’s nanny scandal, many are on Garner’s side. The pair is putting their children first, however, and this year, they spent Easter as a family despite the impending divorce.

  • Mila Kunis & Ashton Kutcher


    Jackie and Kelso were always meant to be. Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher met on set of That '70s Show in 1998—in fact, Kutcher was Kunis’s first kiss that very year. However, they didn’t link up romantically until 2012, though they kept their relationship on the down low until their engagement in 2014. They had a daughter, Wyatt, later that year and got married in 2015.

  • Miley Cyrus & Liam Hemsworth


    This former Disney star met her fiancé-to-be Liam Hemsworth on the set of the Nicholas Sparks film The Last Song in 2010. Two years later in 2012, Cyrus and the Hunger Games star were engaged. After a breakup in 2013, the two are now back together.

  • Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt


    The beloved couple that is Brangelina can be traced back to the 2004 assassin movie Mr. and Mrs. Smith. They fell in love while filming, leading to Jennifer Aniston’s divorce from Pitt. But it wasn’t until June 2005 that Jolie and Pitt announced their relationship in an exclusive W magazine spread. Pitt adopted Jolie’s adopted children shortly after that, and in 2006, they had their first biological child. They finally got married in 2014 and today have six children together.

  • Eva Mendes & Ryan Gosling


    This couple was first brought together when they played boyfriend and girlfriend in the 2011 movie The Place Beyond The Pines. When they were finally spotted on a date in Disneyland later that year, people knew it was serious. The couple welcomed their daughter Esmeralda in 2014, and although they aren’t married, they continue to have a loving relationship.

  • Jenna Dewan-Tatum & Channing Tatum


    This dancing duo is an absolute dream. Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan met on the set of the 2006 film Step Up. By 2009, they were married, and in 2013 they welcomed a daughter to their lives. But, they’re not done dancing quite yet—the couple are in the works of creating a dance competition show for NBC.

  • Alexis Bledel & Vincent Kartheiser


    Although their characters on Mad Men may not have had the best relationship, Alexis Bledel and Vincent Kartheiser hit it off when they met on set for Bledel’s guest appearance in 2012. Fellow cast members attested to the chemistry between the two, but they waited until the season wrapped to start dating. A few months later and they were engaged, and in 2014, the actors were wed.

  • Sarah Michelle Gellar & Freddie Prinze Jr.


    After meeting on set of 1997’s I Know What You Did Last Summer, Sarah Michelle Gellar and Freddie Prinze Jr. became the it-couple of the late '90s. They married in 2002 and have two children together. With such a strong and sweet relationship, they don’t feel a need to separate life and career. They worked together again as Daphne and Fred in two Scooby-Doo movies.

  • Rita Wilson & Tom Hanks


    This long-married couple is proof that Hollywood love can really last. They met when Wilson appeared on an episode of Hank’s early '80s TV show Bosom Buddies. However, it wasn’t until the 1985 film Volunteers that sparks began to fly. However, at the time Hanks was still married to his college sweetheart, the late Samantha Lewes. They got divorced and in 1988, Hanks and Wilson got married—and they’ve been together ever since.

  • Anna Paquin & Stephen Moyer


    Looks like there was true love on the set of True Blood. Stars Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer met when they first started filming the show in 2007, and by 2009, they confirmed their off-screen relationship status—which understandably made their raunchier scenes together much more natural. The couple married in 2010 and now they have two children together.

  • Ginnifer Goodwin & Josh Dallas


    This is one happily ever after. Ginnifer Goodwin is currently expecting her second child with her husband Josh Dallas, years after the two met while playing Snow White and Prince Charming on Once Upon a Time in 2011. By 2014, they tied the knot.

  • Jennifer Lawrence & Nicholas Hoult


    JLaw met former boyfriend Nicholas Hoult on the set of 2011’s X-Men: First Class. But unfortunately, after dating on and off for about five years, they split in late 2014, claiming that their busy schedules made the relationship difficult over time.

  • Amber Heard & Johnny Depp


    After splitting from his partner of 14 years, Vanessa Paradis, in 2011, Johnny Depp reportedly met and began dating his Rum Diary costar. They kept their relationship discreet, however, and made their first public appearance as a couple in early 2014. By February 2015, they were married in a private island wedding.

  • Kelly Ripa & Mark Consuelos


    While All My Children may have been one seriously dramatic soap opera, that doesn’t mean that all the relationships that resulted from it were doomed. Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos have been married 20 years, after they met on set of the soap. Together, they have three teenage children.

  • Kristen Stewart & Robert Pattinson


    It was a dream come true for Twilight fans (at least those on Team Edward) when Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson began dating in 2011, after they had started their work on the series in 2008. However, this is one love that didn’t last—the two parted ways in 2013, a year after the release of Breaking Dawn: Part 2.
