Usually, office romances are forbidden. Managers assume that it will affect morale and raise tensions in the office. But what about celebrities? If their job is to be in love and express love to each other, then is it still frowned upon?
Here, we outline some celebrities who met and fell in love – while at work! While some have lasted and others haven’t it’s important to never underestimate the power of dramatic romance! Let’s dive in, shall we?
Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys
This charming couple started dating in 2013 after Russell ended things with Shane Deary. The Felicity star met Rhys during the second season of The Americans. Apparently, the two of them hit it off right away and helped with filming.

Alicia Vikander and Michael Fassbender
Alicia Vikander and Michael Fassbender were cast as a loving husband and wife in the 2014 film The Light Between Oceans. Well, it turns out they didn’t need to act much! The two of them immediately hit it off.

In 2009, they married and welcomed a daughter a few years later in 2013. Shockingly, the two announced their split in April 2018, sending waves through Hollywood. Are you surprised to hear it didn’t work out with these two? Perhaps we need a sequel to rekindle the romance!

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie
Whoever you are, you have opinions about Brangelina. These two shocked Hollywood and the world when they announced their romance in 2005. The A-listers met on the set of Mr. and Mrs. Smith – and their on-screen chemistry was NOT a testament to their acting.
Quickly after shooting wrapped, Pitt filed for divorce from then-wife Jennifer Aniston and stayed with Jolie for 10 years. Sadly, the parents of six filed for divorce in 2016 – two years after getting married.
Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes
This gorgeous couple made their debut as partners in 2011 – soon after they finished filming The Place Beyond The Pines. Since then, they’ve been gracing red carpets everywhere as one of Hollywood’s most beautiful couples.
Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes have always been famously private about their lives, but we DO know they have two daughters together. Gosling and Mendes are the proud parents of Esmeralda and Amada. They must be the most beautiful children!
Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton
These two entered each other’s lives while both experiencing heartbreak. Stefani was in the middle of divorcing Gavin Rossdale, while Shelton was separating from Miranda Lambert. Still, when they met on The Voice, everything would change.

Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem
These Latino love birds met in 2007 while filming the Woody Allen comedy Vicky Christina Barcelona. They may have looked passionate while on set – that’s because they weren’t acting! These two were flirting their way through the whole shoot.

The romance has been nothing short of sensational. After a few years, Fox filed for divorce from Green in 2015. The following year, they welcomed a child together. In April 2019, they dismissed the divorce case.
Shia LaBeouf and Mia Goth
Shia LaBeouf and Mia Goth met in 2012 during the production of Nymphomaniac. It appears that fiction truly is based on reality – these two couldn’t keep their hands off each other! They were together for a few years and got married in Vegas in 2016.
Sadly, it wasn’t meant to last and they got divorced in September 2018. It doesn’t seem that LaBeouf was too upset about it, as we can see on the next page…
Shia LaBeouf and FKA Twigs (Tahliah Barnett)
It looks as though these two had worked hard to finally be together! They met on the set of the 2019 film Honey Boy. Shia LaBeouf was in the middle of a divorce with Mia Goth, while FKA Twigs was breaking off an engagement with Robert Pattinson.

Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart
These two iconic actors met while portraying Edward Cullen and Bella Swan on the big screen. It turns out that when they played lovers during the Twilight franchise, they were lovers in real life, too.

Kit Harington and Rose Leslie
You might have heard of a little show called Game of Thrones. These two love birds met while filming the wildly popular fantasy show. They dated for a while before splitting in 2013. And we thought the show was dramatic!

Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos
This cute pair met in 1995 while playing on-screen lovers on All My Children. Well, they clearly didn’t have to act too hard since they quickly started dating in real life, too! We bet it made those onscreen kisses a little less awkward for the stars.
They avoided the big Hollywood weddings and actually got eloped in Las Vegas the following year. They have since had three children – two boys and a girl. How romantic!
Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell
Here’s a love story for the ages! Goldie Hawn first laid eyes on future hubby Kurt Russell way back in 1968. They were on the set of The One and Only, Genuine, Original Family Band when she admitted to finding him ‘adorable’. The only problem? She was 21 and he was 16!

Maggie Q and Dylan McDermott
These two stars would meet on the set of the short-lived series Stalker. Even though the show would never live past its first season, it was enough for Maggie Q and Dylan McDermott to meet.
They started dating in 2014 and got engaged quickly after. For those thinking it might have been a bit quick for these two, you’re right. They split in 2019 before heading down the aisle. Looks like this relationship won’t be getting a season two, either.
Kaitlin Olson and Rob McElhenney
According to the happy couple, these two actually started dating in secret during the second season of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. Eventually, they revealed that they were serious and ended up finally tying the knot in 2008.
Eager fans of the show may have noticed when ‘Sweet Dee’ was pregnant for season six. In fact, Olson was pregnant in real life with their first son, Axel. They have since welcomed a second child Leo – this time off-screen!
LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian
It took the Lifetime movie Northern Lights for these two to find each other in 2009. While chemistry was clearly running strong between them, there was only one problem: they were both married to other people!
LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian divorced Dean Sheremet and Brandi Glanville before marrying each other in 2011. To date, they are still happy and very much in love. We can’t wait to see the Lifetime movie about their real life romance!
Emily VanCamp and Josh Bowman
Emily VanCamp and Josh Bowman met each other on the set of Revenge back in 2012. They quickly started dating during the first season and would prove to be one of the most charismatic parts of the show.
Sadly Revenge was canceled in 2015, but that didn’t put a stop to their romance. The happy couple announced their engagement in 2017 and finally wed the following year. If ABC ever decides to revive the show, the network won’t have to look far for these two.
Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds
Ok, so not much can be said about 2011’s The Green Lantern. The superhero flop briefly put an end to Ryan Reynolds’ career and stalled DC’s plans for a cinematic universe. If fans can be thankful for anything, it’s the romance that blossomed from it!
Blake Lively And Ryan Reynolds met each other in 2010 during filming and instantly hit it off. They didn’t start a relationship with each other until they were both single. Today, they have two daughters and are welcoming a third child. Oh, and Reynolds now plays Deadpool on the big screen.
Freddie Prinze Jr. and Sarah Michelle Gellar
These two 90s stars met each other in 1997 while filming the classic horror film I Know What You Did Last Summer. They immediately started dating and finally got engaged in 2002. They even appeared on-screen together two more times, in 2002’s live-action Scooby-Doo and its sequel.
Amazingly, the couple is still going strong 22 years after they first met – something rare for Hollywood! They have two children together – a boy and a girl.
Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith
Another Hollywood couple to stand the test of time over the decades is Will Smith And Jada Pinkett Smith. These two met way back in 1997 when Jada auditioned to appear in The Fresh Prince of Bel Air.
Sadly, she didn’t get the part due to being short. However, that didn’t stop her from catching Will’s eyes. The pair were later reintroduced by a mutual friend and have recently celebrated 22 years of marriage.
Johnny Galecki and Kaley Cuoco
You might recognize these two from The Bang Bang Theory – the inexplicably popular sitcom that ran for many, many years. Throughout that time, on-screen couple Penny and Leonard grew their relationship towards marriage and eventually children.
Well, it turns out that the same thing was happening between Johnny Galecki and Kaley Cuoco! Although their relationship wasn’t as successful as their on-screen counterparts, it didn’t stop them from remaining professional for the rest of the show.
Natalie Portman and Benjamin Millepied
Natalie Portman’s performance in 2010’s Black Swan wasn’t the only thing that was mesmerizing – just ask the actress herself! Portman met her choreographer husband, Benjamin Millepied on set.
These two instantly hit it off and married two years later. Since their wedding, the two have welcomed two children into the world. Their son, Aleph, was born in 2011, while their daughter Amalia joined them a few years later. When asked what was more meaning, her Oscar or her husband from the film, she answered husband. Good choice!
Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield
These two met on the set of 2012’s The Amazing Spider-Man. Regardless of critical reactions to the film, it is undeniable that these two had on-screen chemistry with one another. They reunited on screen again for the 2014 sequel.
The pair would go on to date for four more years, but eventually break up in 2016 – the same year the comic book character was rebooted. Apparently the two remained close friends, with Garfield giving Stone a standing ovation for her Oscar win in 2017.
Michael C. Hall And Jennifer Carpenter
These two played step-siblings in Showtime’s Dexter – so don’t expect any on-screen chemistry there! Hall and Carpenter both played Dexter and Deborah, respectively, and eventually married in 2009 while the show was in production.
Sadly, the two stars ultimately divorced in 2010. This didn’t stop them from working amicably together for the rest of the show, which came to its disappointing end in 2013. Apparently, it wasn’t tough for them to work together afterward since they shared very few scenes.
Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz
Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz met in 2010 while filming Dream House together. Soon after production started, Craig ended his relationship with Satsuki Mitchell and she ended things with filmmaker Darren Aronofsky.
By the following year, love was stronger than ever for these two and they officially tied the knot. They enjoyed a few years of honeymoon period before finally welcoming a daughter in September 2018. Daniel Craig is currently filming his last James Bond film.
