In the real world, there are two rules to follow for a healthy work environment:

  1. Don’t steal someone else’s food from the fridge.
  2. Don’t date your coworkers.

Both make for awkward water cooler run-ins and should probably be avoided.

Unless, of course, you’re a famous movie star who dates other famous movie stars and you decide to date your coworkers. Then things just get interesting and awkward.

Especially when the characters you’re portraying are together on screen.

Why? LOVE SCENES. Look no further than Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman in Eyes Wide Shut to see what we mean. Pretty sure Keith Urban’s neeeeeever watching THAT movie.


And when (if) things go south, there’s still a whole lot of time to be spent together promoting a film where their on-screen personalities are still together while they no longer are.

Despite dating one’s coworkers being a pretty terrible idea as a general rule of thumb, check out our gallery of 25 movie couples who were together in real life.

The good news is that some of them are still going strong.
