16 Romance Movies Based On Real-Life Couples
Most romantic movies feel like fairytale-esque stories that fail to reflect the reality of dating and relationships. After all, first kisses can be awkward as heck and not all popular guys instantly fall for geeky girls (contrary to what She’s All That or A Walk To Remember might’ve told you). However, you’d be surprised to know that a few romantic classics were actually inspired by true events. Though we can still appreciate the world of make-believe and its ability to help us escape the real world, it’s kind of comforting to know that such gripping and powerful love stories also exist real life.
These films remind us that real love can be even more magical than the fictional couples we fangirl over. And though they don’t always lead to happy endings, most these stories still give us hope. See which romantic movies were inspired by real events.
