10 Movie Couples That Ended Up Being The Real Deal

Couples in movies always look so perfect, and it's hard not to wonder how those actors portray love so convincingly without actually dating. Well, turns out more that a few of these actors were real-life couples, and these 10 are especially notable.

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez


The two met on the set of Gigli in 2002 and began dating right afterwards. They soon played a couple in 2004's Jersey Girl while engaged to each other, but they soon broke things off, and "Bennifer" was over.

Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn


The pair reconnected on the set of Swing Shift in 1983, after having appeared in several movies together in the 60s, and have lived together ever since. A few years later, they appeared as an on-screen couple in Overboard.

Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith


Will and Jada met on the set of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, and several years later they were married. In the movie Ali, Will plays legendary boxer Muhammad Ali, while Jada plays his first wife, Sonji Roi.

Tim Robbins and Susan Sarandon

The two met on the set of Bull Durham in 1986, where Sarandon's character begins by seducing Robbins. They began a long-term relationship soon afterwards, but that ended in 2009.
