Working side by side for several months, playing lovers and kissing on set – it is not surprising that many actors catch feelings for each other. The spectators are only happy: it is amazing to watch your favourite couples in the cinema and see them on the red carpet after embracing and happy. We put together a list of our favourite movie stars who fell in love on set.
Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem
The actors met in 1992 during the filming of the Spanish drama “Ham, Ham”. This was not ‘love at first take’, however. The romantic feelings between them broke out only 16 years later while working on the film “Vicky Christina Barcelona”. After two years of relationship, they got married and now have two children – Leo and Luna.
Nicole Kidman and Tom Cruise
In an interview with People magazine Kidman told that when she first saw Cruise on the cover of the film “Days of Thunder” in 1990, she “lost the ability to speak”:
“I remember I was very nervous, and here he comes in his Porsche. I thought to myself then: “No, I definitely won’t get this role.”
The experience of Kidman, who at that time was a not so well-known Australian actress, proved to be wrong. She became Tom’s partner on set and not long after that they became more than friends.
Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling
Ryan and Rachel fell in love with each other while filming ‘The Notebook’. However, true, romantic feelings did not break out immediately between the actors. At the beginning, they had quite a few creative disagreements. Some were so intense that the director Nick Cassavetes had to intervene. “In the end, we all settled,” he said in an interview with VH1. “I think Ryan appreciated how much Rachel defended her vision of the main character, and she was glad to have had an opportunity to openly discuss critical moments.” This was a story of true love on set.
Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds
In July 2010 Lively and Reynolds signed a contract to shoot the film adaptation of the superhero comic “Green Lantern”. Reynolds was then married to Scarlett Johansson, and Lively was dating her partner on the series “Gossip Girl”, Penn Badgeley. By December 2010 they were both single, and a few months of working together was enough to fall in love with each other forever. A year later, they went together to Vancouver, where Ryan introduced Blake to his family.
Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield
The actors met on the set of “Spiderman” in 2012. In an interview with Teen Vogue on the eve of the premiere, the actress admitted that Garfield “was one of the best partners in the film”. He, in turn, did not hesitate to talk about his feelings for the actress:
“When she entered the pavilion, I seemed to have woken up from a dream. The shoot took place in an incredible atmosphere. I constantly tried to be near her, to follow her close and not lose sight of her even for a minute.”
