Life imitates art at times, and actors feel the same emotions as their fictional counterparts. These relationships are, to some degree, notorious for causing problems behind the scenes, despite the fact that they make viewers swoon. Many people avoid forming romantic relationships with their coworkers in all professions. However, these celebrities are so close that it’s impossible to keep their emotions in check.
These couples had chemistry that helped future viewers define love. Some people kept their romance a secret, only revealing it after the relationship ended. Others enthralled fans around the world by revealing that everyone’s favorite duo was back together. Here are ten on-screen couples who fell in love in real life.
Ian Somerhalder And Nina Dobrev – The Vampire Diaries
Although fans were split on whether Elena should be with Damon or Stephen, Nina Dobrev’s heart belonged to Ian Somerhalder in real life.
Despite being romantically linked in 2010, they did not make their relationship official until 2011. They gave The Vampire Diaries fans something to cheer about. Following that, Somerhalder and Dobrev were frequently seen together. That’s why many people were surprised when they called it quits in 2013. Nonetheless, they have handled the situation with less than grace and have continued to string their investments since.
Lea Michele And Cory Monteith – Glee
None of the other failed relationships on this list ended as disastrously as Lea Michele and Cory Monteith’s. Rachel and Finn fell in love while filming Glee, and it wasn’t just because of their credits. They stayed together until Monteith died in 2013.
Penn Badgley and Blake Lively – Gossip Girl
Because they were concerned about their bosses’ reactions, Blake Lively and Penn Badgley kept their relationship a secret. Only later did Lively realize that the higher-ups were probably overjoyed that Dan and Serena were dating. Indeed, it appeared that people thought Lively and Badgley were interchangeable. Their relationship ended in 2010, and they both went on to earn their Hollywood degrees.
Adam Brody And Rachel Bilson – The O.C.
Don’t even consider Ryan and Marissa. Fans of The O.C. were rooting for Seth and Summer. Imagine how happy everyone was when Adam Brody and Rachel Bilson started dating. The couple started dating in the first season and split up shortly before the fourth and final season.
Taylor Lautner And Billie Lourd – Scream Queens
Chanel No. 3 and Dr. Cassidy Cascade were not only a couple on Scream Queens, but they were also married. Taylor Lautner and Billie Lourd, who play the two, were outed by their co-star Keke Palmer. She shared a Snapchat photo of Lourd and Lautner kissing, and when it went viral, fans were swooning. The couple split up after an eight-month relationship, but they remain friends.
Joshua Jackson And Katie Holmes – Dawson’s Creek
Another hotly debated topic among fans was whether Joey should be with Pacey or Dawson. Kevin Williamson claims that the spark between Katie Holmes and Joshua Jackson was obvious from the beginning, which is why he predicted that Joey and Pacey’s relationship would eventually become romantic. Of course, Holmes famously married Cruise—and then divorced him through a lawyer. Jackson dated Diane Krueger for ten years at the same time.
Natalia Dyer And Charlie Heaton – Stranger Things
Stranger Things fans were overjoyed when Natalia Dyer and Charlie Heaton confirmed that they were a real-life couple. Rumors of a romantic relationship have circulated since they were seen together at LAX. However, given how close the cast is off-screen, it was all conjecture. They don’t discuss their personal lives much, but it’s clear that their chemistry extends beyond their onscreen credits.
Sophia Bush And Chad Michael Murray – One Tree Hill
One Tree Hill fans were shocked to learn in season 2 that Lucas was in love with Brooke. It was most likely because of Chad Michael Murray’s actual relationship with Sophia Bush.
Murray proposed to Bush in May 2004, and the couple married in 2005. Unfortunately, the marriage was only five months long. Worse, their personalities had reverted to that of a couple.
Alexis Bledel And Milo Ventimiglia – Gilmore Girls
Few TV relationships have sparked as much discussion as Rory and her boyfriends on Gilmore Girls. Although the debate rages on, many fans have sided with Milo Ventimiglia’s character, Jess.
Alexis Bledel has always kept her personal life a closely guarded secret to some degree. After three and a half years together, Bledel and Ventimiglia split in 2006. Many fans were unaware that they were dating until it was too late.
Cole Sprouse And Lili Reinhart – Riverdale
“Bughead” fans have hoped that Cole Sprouse and Lili Reinhart’s chemistry stems from a real-life relationship since the beginning of their Riverdale romance. Viewers scrutinized every Instagram post and photoshoot, amassing a mountain of evidence to back up their suspicions. After a year of rumors, it appears that the couple has finally gone public.
