Every now and then, we'll see a couple on screen that has SUCH good chemistry, we can't help but wish they were a couple in real life. (Like Han Solo and Princess Leia, for example). And then eeeeevery now and then, that couple (or one-half of the duo) will speak up years after the movie or show is finished and admit that they really were a couple IRL -- or at least had something going on.

And in honor of our favorite movie couple (Carrie and Harrison) turned one-time IRL fling, here are 16 other on-screen romances we wish were a thing in the real world. The chemistry is just so good, we can't help but dream!
