I think we can all agree that there's just something about a movie or TV set that brings people together. Maybe it's the glitz and glamour of being in a big Hollywood production or a beloved Netflix series. Maybe it's the intimate scenes that make two people feel like they're the only ones in the world. Maybe it's the alternate reality that takes over your life for a few months. Or maybe it's getting to fall in love with your scene partner and your partner's character at the same time. We've seen many a great relationship come out of a great show or film, but some of these couples (or ex-couples) came into the game together. They hooked up and then their characters hooked up, meaning it was some combo of art imitating life or life imitating art or something.
From Chilling Adventures of Sabrina to Arrested Development to Dawson's Creek and many, many productions in between, we get to see some of our favorite couples' chemistry play out right before our eyes, and suddenly everything makes sense, at least for the time being. Though some of these couples haven't stayed together for the long run, we can't deny how much we love getting to watch them do what they do best together. Is there a better version of method acting? We can't think of one. Check out our list of some of Hollywood's finest couples and ex-couples who shared a life together before they shared a big screen relationship.
