10 celebrity couples who transferred their romance from real life to the screen (11 photos)

19 January 2024

The film set often becomes an excellent place for the birth of a new romance - this applies to both aspiring actors in low-budget films and Hollywood stars in top blockbusters. But the opposite cases are also interesting, when already formed celebrity couples transfer their private romance to the cinema and play love on the screen.

John Krasinski and Emily Blunt

They have been married since 2010, and in 2017 they starred in the film A Quiet Place, where they played husband and wife. The film was directed and written by Krasinski himself, so it's no surprise that he cast his wife in his project.

Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe

They met in 1997 and were already engaged at the time of the release of their joint film Cruel Intentions (1999).

Paul Dano and Zoe Kazan

They have been in a relationship since 2007, and in 2012 they starred in the film “Ruby Sparks”, where they played a couple. By the way, the script of the film was written by Zoe Kazan herself.

Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn

They have been de facto married since 1983, and in 1987 they starred in the film Overboard, where they played a couple.

Freddie Prinze and Sarah Michelle Gellar

When filming began in the film Scooby-Doo (2002), where they played a couple, the actor and actress were already engaged.

Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton

The mid-century Hollywood stars were married twice, a year apart, from 1964 to 1976, and played a married couple in the famous film Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? (1966). In total, Taylor and Burton starred in 11 films together, including the legendary Cleopatra.

Kenneth Branagh and Emma Thompson

They have been married since 1989, and in 1993 they played the roles of Benedict and Beatrice in the film adaptation of Shakespeare's play Much Ado About Nothing. The film was directed by Branagh himself. In total, Thompson and Branagh played in five joint projects.

Jesse Plemons and Kirsten Dunst

They have been in a relationship since 2016, and in 2021 they played a married couple in the film “The Power of the Dog.”

Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman

They played a married couple in the film “Eyes Wide Shut” (1999), having been married in real life for almost 10 years - since 1990. Also, the romantic line between the characters of Cruise and Kidman is present in their lesser-known joint film “Far and Away” (1992 ).

Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz

The couple has been married since 2010. In this status, they played in two joint films, where there is a romantic line between their characters, although it was far from happy: “Escobar” (2017) and “Labyrinths of the Past” (2018). In total, Cruz and Bardem have several films together, including the debut film in Penelope’s career, “Ham, Ham” (1992).
