couples who met on set

It’s the month of love and we’re celebrating in our favourite way: romantic movies! This February we’re bringing all the love with romance, drama, and the ultimate must-watch in this, the mushiest of months: the rom-com.

There are a few local films lined up too including Late Bloomer. There’s also plenty of romantic drama (or should that be dramatic romance?) happening on Legacy, where Lexie and Stefan continue to set the screen ablaze with their romantic tryst – all helped by a little real-life chemistry since the actors who play them (Jay Anstey and Sean-Marco Vorster) are together IRL and just welcomed a baby into the world.

Here are a few of our other favourite couples who met while filming (and are still together).

Alicia Vikander and Michael Fassbender met while filming The Light Between Oceans and were married in 2017.
Bitsie Tulloch and David Giuntoli met while filming the fantasy series Grimm. The show ended in 2017, which is also when the couple tied the knot.
Natalie Portman and Benjamin Millepied met on the set of Black Swan and were married in 2012.
Green Lantern may not be everyone's favourite movie, but it did give us the amazing couple that is Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively.
Claire Danes and Hugh Dancy met on the set of Evening and were married a few years later.
Another fantasy series romance, Ginnifer Goodwin and Josh Dallas started dating while filming Once Upon a Time and married in 2014.
Jada Pinkett Smith and Will Smith met after Jada auditioned for a role in The Fresh Prince of Bel Air. The couple have been married for 25 years.
Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck met on the set of Gigli in 2001, split up in 2004, and recently got back together.
Even though Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem both appeared in the 1992 film Jamon Jamon, the couple only started dating in 2007, marrying in 2010.
Sarah Michelle Gellar and Freddie Prinze Jr met on the set of I Know What You Did Last Summer and were married in 2002.
