10 Popular on-screen couples that dated in real life

Television and movies is where great romances are born. The love stories we see on screen teach us how to fall in love and hold on to our loved ones. Over the years, we’ve seen so many on screen celebrity love stories turn into real ones. When we look at some of these couples, it really restores our faith in relationships.

If you’re looking for some relationship inspo, then you’ve come to the right place because these celebs are giving us some serious relationship goals.

Here's a list of some of our fav on-screen couples with an undeniable chemistry who carried their love sagas from reel to real life.


1. Kit Harrington and Rose Leslie

10. Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor

Season 7 of ‘Game of Thrones’ only just got over but it’s left us all with a multitude of conflicting emotions. While we were all rooting for Jon’s little tryst with Khaleesi, the feeling was a wee bit bittersweet because we were such fans of the Jon-Ygritte duo. Ygritte (Rose) and Jon Snow (Kit) fell in love in season three of the show but then parted ways (on screen) with the death of Rose’s character. Rose Leslie and Kit Harington have been dating for the past few years. So despite the on-screen heartbreak, we can at least take comfort in the fact that the two are still together and shacking up in real life.


2. Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan

10. Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor

Channing and Jenna met on the sets of their film ‘Step Up’ and it was instant fireworks. Theirs is not only a cute but an extremely sexy and slightly weird story. Here’s the short version straight from Jenna:

“So he comes down to my hotel room a 2 a.m., and he's banging on the door, and I'm like, 'What is going on?!' And I go and I open the door, and he's in a sombrero. He's naked—no, I'm sorry. He's in a sombrero and Ugg boots, and he's like, 'Let's do this.'"

Needless to say, the couple had a great night, which eventually led to a marital happily ever after.


3. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie

10. Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor

Brangelina is was one of the most epic couples of all time and a million hearts broke the day these two separated. Still, since we’re talking about couple goals, we simply had to mention these two. The two met in 2004 on the sets of their film ‘Mr. and Mrs. Smith’ and there was instant attraction. Unfortunately, Brad was married to Jennifer Aniston at the time but the chemistry between him and Angelina was undeniable. In fall 2005 Brad and Jennifer got divorced and in 2006, Angelina revealed her pregnancy with Brad’s baby to the world. The couple was inseparable ever since. They had beautiful kids together and eventually even got married. However things weren’t meant to work out and the couple recently parted ways for good.


4. Emily VanCamp and Josh Bowman

10. Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor

Emily and Josh started dating on the sets of the show ‘Revenge’ in the year 2012.  Although Emily/Amanda and Daniel had an onscreen relationship filled with nothing but hatred and deception, in the real-life Emily and Josh shared a deep felt romance; one they preferred to keep on the down low until they were ready to take the next step in their relationship. Their relationship is going strong even today. In fact, the lovely couple got engaged earlier this year and we couldn’t be happier for them!


5. Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively

10. Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor

Blake and Ryan became quite close while working together on their film ‘Green Lantern.’ However things didn’t take a romantic turn at the time because Blake was dating her Gossip Girl co-star Penn Badgley at the time, and Reynolds was married to Scarlett Johansson. Once they broke off those relationships, they went on to date other Hollywood elites, and it wasn’t until much later that the two realized the inevitable and found true love with each other. Well, we love a couple that takes it slow and steady because this gorgeous duo is a total winner in our eyes. Don’t you agree?


6. Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher

10. Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor

Now theirs is a story that’s super cute and somewhat hilarious too! Mila and Ashton met as co-stars on the sets of That '70s Show over 18 years ago. It's almost too perfect that Jackie and Kelso are together now, but it wasn’t all smooth sailing at first. Even after years of knowing each other, the two spent about half that time seriously dating other people (Kutcher was married to Demi Moore from 2005 to 2013 while Kunis dated Macaulay Culkin for eight years, until late 2010.) They spent some of that time being friends, but there was also a phase where they hated each other (or at least Kunis hated Kutcher.) But we’re glad it all worked out well in the end because the two are happily married now and have some really cute kids together too!


7. Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai

10. Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor

Abishek and Aishwarya’s wedding in 2007 may have been a somewhat low key affair but that didn’t stop the media from going gaga over it. After all, a wedding in the Bachchan family, that too with former Miss World had to be a celebration of gigantic proportions. The two actors worked together in a number of films like films like ‘Kuch Naa Kaho’, ‘Dhaai Akshar Prem Ke,’ ‘Umrao Jaan,’ ‘Raavan’ and ‘Sarkar Raj.’ Theirs is a relationship that gradually evolved into one of the most talked about industry love stories of all time.


8. Akshay Kumar and <a href="https://www.bebeautiful.in/fashion/celebrities-style/twinkle-khannas-queen-of-twitter">Twinkle Khanna</a>

10. Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor

The two first met during a shoot for Filmfare magazine, in Mumbai, where Akshay developed an instant crush on Twinkle. In one of his interviews with Filmfare, the actor confessed the same and said:

“I met Twinkle for the first time during a photo session with Jayesh Seth for Filmfare. I still have that photograph. Thank you, Filmfare!”

However, it was actually during the shooting of their film, ‘International Khiladi’, when the two fell for each other. The movie didn’t work wonders on screen, and neither did their on screen romance. But things seemed to have worked out perfectly in their real lives…and the rest is history!


9. Ajay Devgan and Kajol

10. Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor

Ajay Devgan and Kajol are a 90’s power couple that we’ve grown up rooting for. Their budding romance started on the sets of the film ‘Gundaraj.’ The duo worked together in many films such as ‘Hulchul’, ‘Pyaar To Hona Hi Tha’, ‘Raju Chacha’ and ‘Ishq’ while giving us couple goals all along the way. They finally tied the knot in 1999 and continue to be happily married with two beautiful kids.


10. Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor

10. Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor

Saif and Kareena’s love story has hardly ever gotten a break from the limelight. Saifeena was an instant favourite right from the moment the two got together on the sets of their film ‘Tashan.’ The movie was a box office miss but this romance went on to top all relationship charts. We were all ecstatic when they finally decided to tie the knot in 2012. And then they went ahead and gave the world a royal gift, baby Taimur… who’s only the cutest little munchkin ever! We just can’t get enough of this gorgeous royal couple (and their baby boy)!
