You have probably watched the most extraordinary love stories, either on the big or small screen, played by your favorite on-screen couple. They have made you fall in love one way or another.
Vivian Ward (Julia Roberts) and Edward Lewis’s (Richard Gere) relationship in Pretty Woman is one of the most popular classic love stories.  Who could also forget the iconic relationship of Noah, Jr. (Ryan Gosling) and Allie Hamilton (Rachel McAdams) in The Notebook?
These films, among others, may have convinced you that love exists, and their tales have swept you off your feet. You probably hoped for some of them to wind up with one another in real life, and some do end up together, proving their love is beyond the screen.
Some examples are Freddie Prinze Jr. and Sarah Michelle Gellar, who worked together in I Know What You Did Last Summer, and, of course, Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes in The Place Beyond the Pines.
However, others only remain lovers on-screen, like Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper in A Star is Born. Fans are still giving these two credits for making everyone believe their love is true.
Want to know more about these lovely on-screen couples, both on-screen and real life? Check out this list as they make you fall in love all over again.

Adèle & Emma | Blue Is the Warmest Colour

Blue is the Warmest Colour tells the story of Adèle, the 15-year-old high-school student, who gets easily attracted to the woman with blue hair, Emma. They meet by chance, and then everything that happened is close to perfect. The film doesn’t only tell a great love story between the two young girls who are both looking for love, but it also leads to a powerful self-discovery for Adèle, who is still searching for her identity.
The couple’s exploration of freedom and love brings them closer together, although sadly, they didn’t end up with one another. The film’s dramatic portrayal of their separation shows that not every great love story ends with a happy ending. Despite parting ways, Emma has taught Adèle a lot about life, especially about herself. The movie received universal acclaim from Metacritic, while Rotten Tomatoes’ critical consensus gives it credit for being “raw, honest, and powerfully acted.”

Adrian Pennino & Rocky Balboa | Rocky

Do you remember Adrian Pennino and Rocky Balboa in the 1976 movie Rocky? The movie’s sequel gave birth to the most iconic quotes in sports film history – when Rocky yelled his wife’s name and said, “I did it!” Their tale proved that love can get people through thick and thin, even in winning and losing battles.
The two met at a pet store, where Rocky frequently went to buy turtle food. Little did Adrian know that Rocky was the one her brother, Paulie, would force her to date with. Their romance started from there. As Adrian had a problem with her brother, Rocky offered her to stay in his apartment so that she didn’t need to pay for her mortgage anymore. The two lived together, and Rocky started to draw strength from her. At the time of his fight, Rocky called Adrian, and she rushed to the ring. Rocky made way for her and expressed his love for Adrian.

Alabama Whitman & Clarence Worley | True Romance

The troubled love story of Alabama Whitman and Clarence Worley is what makes their tale fun to watch in the Quentin Tarantino film True Romance. Everything started when Alabama approached the Elvis Presley fanatic Clarence in the theatre that led to them sleeping together. The girl later revealed that Clarence’s boss hired her as a gift, but she quickly fell in love.
This unlikely turn of events ended with a marriage that involved police, lawyers, prisons, and everything in between. Knowing how eccentric and one-of-a-kind Quentin’s movies are, you can expect to see the same in this movie. The actors behind Alabama and Clarence, however, perfectly knew how to make every minute of it worth watching. Patricia Arquette and Christian Slater showed incredible acting skills that were beyond superb. For about two hours, these two would make your heart skip a beat as they went together on a journey that was intense and thrilling.

Allie & Noah | The Notebook

Director Nick Cassavetes adapted Nicholas Sparks’ classic novel The Notebook, which is about Noah, Jr. and Allie Hamilton’s great love story. Played by Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams, they perfectly portrayed a deeply in love couple who was able to withstand the test of time together. Did you know that this tale is based on a true story? Yes! Nicholas chose to write the story of his former wife’s grandparents, who were together for more than 60 years. The novelist was deeply in awe of their intense love for each other, which might convince you that the degree of love Noah had for Allie was real.
Ryan and Rachel became an “it couple” after this movie and dated for a short while in real life. Sorry, shippers, their romance didn’t have the chance to blossom. Things didn’t work out for the two, but at least, they left us a fictional relationship that we would forever cherish.

Ally Campano & Jackson Maine | A Star Is Born

Who doesn’t fall in love with the romantic fairy tale of Ally Campano and Jackson Main in A Star is Born? The movie received acclaim from critics and viewers alike, credits to its leading stars Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper. It tells the story of love and sacrifice, a tragic love story that no one can forget. Jackson tried his best to push Ally to follow her dreams, but little did Ally know that Jackson was fighting his own demons.
Lady Gaga and Bradley’s acting was good enough that they had convinced a lot of people they’re a real thing in real life. A lot shipped for them, and they’re even the subject of tabloids and headlines back then. The Mother Monster explained they’re just actors who were doing their jobs, and they wanted everyone to believe they did love each other for real. It can’t be denied that it was a huge success.

Andie and Blane | Pretty In Pink

Molly Ringwald and Andrew McCarthy used to be the most favorite on-screen “it” couple back when Hollywood’s Brat Pack was still dominating the big screen. It all started when they played the credit roles of Andie Walsh and Bane McDonagh in the 1986 movie Pretty in Pink.
Andie is an underdog young girl at her school. She only has two friends, Iona, and her childhood sweetheart, Duckie. Bane, on the other hand, is her total opposite. He’s one of the most popular guys at the school, who will eventually fall in love with her. From being the so-called loser, Andie got everyone’s attention when she started to have a thing with Bane. You may think this movie is another story about a rich boy who falls in love with a poor girl, but the storyline was reinvented with a twist that no one was expecting.

Andie Anderson & Benjamin Barry | How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days

Opposite attracts, they say, which is what Andie Anderson and Benjamin Barry proved in How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days. Benjamin was dared to make a woman fall in love with him while Andie was writing an article about losing a guy.
This film cemented Matthew McConaughey’s spot in rom-com films. He also showed great chemistry on-screen with Kate Hudson, which sent butterflies to the viewers’ stomach. Kate felt lucky that she and Matthew had the chance to experience the old-school Hollywood way of making movies. They were together for four months to film the movie, and she’s hoping to see more of it in the business today. Although these two didn’t end up together, their on-screen characters would permanently be etched in everyone’s mind as one of the best couples and love stories they’ve seen to a certain degree.

Anna Scott and William Thacker | Notting Hill

Another opposites-attract love story on the list is Julia Roberts and Hugh Grant in the 1999 movie Notting Hill. This time, however, Anna is the big shot in Hollywood, while William is a bookshop owner. Who would have thought that a superstar would fall in love with a bookseller? It may only happen in movies, but it gives everyone hope that everything is possible when it comes to love.
This film will make you not just fall in love but laugh, cry, and giggle, too. With their different social statuses, they have encountered a lot of problems that they will later surpass. What can love not get them through? Like other Julia and Hugh’s romantic movies, this one is well-received by many for their incredible acting style. They get the credits for perfectly portraying their characters, proving they’re real movie icons.

Annie Hall & Alvy Singer | Annie Hall

Who would have thought that Woody Allen and Diane Keaton could perfectly play the on-screen couple in the classic 1977 movie Annie Hall? Directed by Woody himself, the movie chronicled the life story of Alvy Singer, who was trying to find the answers to his questions about his failed relationship with Annie Hall.
They might be the most unlikely couple that you would see in the film, but with the degree of their incredible acting, they managed to convince the viewers of their love for each other. Woody’s role in this movie might be his most neurotic, but it’s Diane’s most likable. Thinking it was made in the late ‘70s, it’s also safe to say that the actress was so fashionable back then. According to reports, Diane’s role was specifically made for her, and with the justice she gave it, she proved she was the perfect fit.

Annie Reed & Sam Baldwin | Sleepless in Seattle

Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan perfectly know how to make their viewers fall in love with their fictional love stories. They’ve worked together in a number of films, and one of them is the 1993 movie Sleepless in Seattle. Their romance started due to a radio talk show after Sam Baldwin’s eight-year-old son forced him to join, in the hopes of finding him a companion. After frequently talking on the phone with Annie Reed, who was on the other line. and surpassing different degrees of hindrances, they finally met with Sam in tow. The kid was thrilled to find a girlfriend for his dad after his mother’s demise.
What’s good about this movie is even if Meg and Tom did not spend so much time together on the same scenes, they still managed to feature their chemistry. Isn’t that amazing?

Bella Swan & Edward Cullen | Twilight Franchise

The undying love story of Bella Swan and Edward Cullen has been part of popular culture. A lot of fans have waited for the Twilight saga to be completed to know where it will take the tale of the vampire and human lovers. Their bizarre love story got everyone’s attention, which led to the movie series grossing over $3.3 billion worldwide. The franchise was so famous that fans also read Stephenie Meyer’s book series with the same name, which the film was based on. Three movie installments then followed the first film’s success: New Moon, Breaking Dawn Part 1, and Breaking Dawn Part 2.
Over a decade may have passed since the first movie was out, but its main stars, Kirsten Stewart and Robert Pattinson, will always be remembered for the film saga. For fans, they will always be Bella and Edward, no matter how many film credits they have.

Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow | Bonnie and Clyde

The iconic 1967 movie Bonnie and Clyde was the start of the appearance of grounded and gritty stories in US cinemas. It also started the new era for movies, introducing an on-screen couple of rebels. It’s a landmark film that broke a lot of cinematic taboos and even considered a “rallying cry.” The film was based on Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow’s real story, which was portrayed by Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty.
The film is about a legendary bank-robbing couple, Bonnie and Clyde. They traveled across the Central United States during the Great Depression. Although they’re mostly known as bank robbers, they preferred to rob small stores and rural gas stations. Their names even gave birth to a colloquial expression, which means a highly loyal couple who would do everything for each other, even if it’s illegal or a crime.

Bridget Jones & Mark Darcy | Bridget Jones’s Diary

Another unforgettable on-screen couple and movie are Bridget Jones and Mark Darcy from the 2001 movie Bridget Jones’s Diary. Bridget writes about how she wants to change her life in a diary, and then everything dramatically changed after her two romantic relationships. It took a little while for Bridget and Mark to finally connect with each other, but when they did, it gave the movie the perfect ending that everybody wanted.
After everything, Mark was revealed as the father of Bridget’s baby and not Daniel Clever, which eventually led to their romance. They ended up tying the knot and raising their son, William “Billy,” together, giving the film a happily-ever-after conclusion. The movie starred some of the great artists in the industry, like Renée Zellweger, who had the credit role in the movie, Colin Firth, and Hugh Grant. After the film’s huge success, two films followed it, Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason and Bridget Jones’s Baby.

Buttercup & Westley | The Princess Bride

The 1987 fantasy adventure comedy film The Princess Bride is the perfect classic fairy tale love story of a man looking for his true love. Westley was in a quest to find the woman of his dreams, and then, he had to save her after being separated for so long. Like any other folk tale, however, they have to go through the evils of Florin’s mythical kingdom before they can be finally reunited. Robin Wright and Cary Elwes get the credits for perfectly portraying their loved-up roles here.
It’s based on William Goldman’s 1973 novel with the same title, telling the story of a farmhand Westley and his true love who he has to save, Princess Buttercup, and these characters were brought to life by Robin and Cary. The film sticks to the book’s narrative, featuring a grandfather reading the novel to his sick grandson. The film got a lot of honors, including being inducted into the National Film Registry for being “culturally, historically or aesthetically significant.”

Céline & Jesse | Before Sunrise Trilogy

Richard Linklater, Julie Delpy, and Ethan Hawke managed to produce ’90s movie magic on a shoestring budget and at the mercy of Viennese trains and Ferris wheels. This beloved three-part romance captures a relationship as it starts, begins again, deepens, and strains over the span of almost two decades. It is the cornerstone of director Richard Linklater’s career-long exploration of cinematic time.
The Before Sunrise trilogy is a document of a boundary-pushing and extraordinarily intimate collaboration between director and actors, as Julie and Ethan imbue their characters with a sense of lived-in experience, chronicling Celine (Julie) and Jesse’s (Ethan) love from their first meeting as idealistic twentysomethings to the disillusionment they face together in middle age. The Before films credit the progress of romantic destiny as it navigates the vicissitudes of everyday life, paying attention to both the sweeping grandeur of time’s passage and the evanescence of individual moments.

Clementine Krucynski & Joel Barish | Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

The conclusion of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, a 2004 sci-fi romance, brings Joel Barish and Clementine Krucynski’s tale to a close while still leaving their future open. This is a film directed by Michael Gondry and written by Charlie Kauffman about Joel Barish, played by Jim Carrey, and Clementine Kruczynski, portrayed by Kate Winslet, two strangers who meet on a train and fall in and out of love.
Both of them are given medications to erase their memories of the other, but not before recording tapes to remind them of anything they dislike about each other. Rather than relieving them of the suffering that the relationship has caused, it exacerbates the situation. Since its release, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind has been hailed as a modern masterpiece due to its ending. It’s a breathtaking climax that lingers long after the credits have rolled, both enigmatic and rewarding as well as optimistic but with the possibility of more destruction to come.

Cleopatra & Mark Antony | Cleopatra

Cleopatra, the commanding and impressive Nile queen, ruled Egypt in the first century B.C. and has since become an immediately recognizable figure in popular culture. She’s inspired a Shakespeare play, appeared in a slew of bad and good movies and TV shows, and was featured in the most surreal music videos. Although many people still wonder what the real Cleopatra looks like, Hollywood has chosen to depict her as a stunning beauty.
Without a doubt, Elizabeth Taylor’s Cleopatra is the most well-credited on-screen Cleopatra. Cleopatra, the most expensive film to date, was released in 1963, and according to Vanity Fair, “took $44 million (about $300 million today), two directors, two different casts, and two and a half years of on-and-off shooting in England, Italy, Egypt, and Spain.” Aside from Elizabeth’s iconic 65 costume changes, it was her on-screen and off-screen relationship with Mark Antony, played by Richard Burton, that captivated viewers — and in fact, both actors were married at the time.

Diane Court & Lloyd Dobler | Say Anything…

Cameron Crowe’s portrayal of adolescent love and rebellion, which was released in 1989, is full of grand gestures, brilliant music, and note-perfect observations about growing up in America. The Ione Skye–John Cusack romance is still popular today. Say Something…, directed by Cameron Crowe, ushered in a new era of Hollywood teen romantic comedies. His characters were fully developed, culturally sophisticated, and sufficiently wary of the prismatically overwhelming future that lay ahead of them, in contrast to the usual callow and teenage figures that had tended to dominate youth movies of the period.
It’s also a love story with a conventional happy ending that leaves a lot of questions unanswered. Say Anything… comes to a close with Lloyd Dobler and Diane Court flying to London for her snazzy and long-awaited fellowship. The two have already been through a lot such as a stop-and-start affair, bad advice from friends, a break-up with a pen as a consolation prize, Iceman Power Lloyd, more bad advice from friends, and her father’s imprisonment for defrauding the IRS – without lawyers’ aid. They also left America for a new adventure, which became a nice way to start over.

Dorothy Boyd & Jerry Maguire | Jerry Maguire

Cameron Crowe wrote, made, and directed Jerry Maguire, a 1996 American romantic comedy-drama sports film starring Tom Cruise and Renée Zellweger. It was inspired and credited by sports agent Leigh Steinberg, who served as a technical consultant on the crew and was produced in part by long-time Simpsons producer James L. Brooks. The film was well-received by critics, who praised the acting and writing. It was a commercial success, grossing over $273 million worldwide against a budget of $50 million.
The film is frequently enjoyable, particularly when Tom and Renée are on screen together. Tom portrayed Jerry with the sincerity of a man seeking greatness and pleasure in a profession where only success matters. Renée portrayed a woman who believes in the man she loves, reminding us that true love is supportive. The film is also about how two men learn to value other things besides money.

Elio & Oliver | Call Me By Your Name

Nothing is really “complete” when it comes to works of art, however many come near. One of these films is Luca Guadagnino’s Call Me by Your Name. It is one of the year’s warmest, most moving, and tragic films that has appeared on the screen. It is a film that lives and breathes through the energy of romance and the emotional hurricane of youth, adapted from Andre Aciman’s acclaimed credit debut novel.
Elio Perlman, played by Timothee Chalamet, is a teen who is visiting his parents’ summer home. His father, portrayed by Michael Stuhlbarg, is a classics scholar, while his mother, played by Amira Casar, is a translator. Until a new visitor arrives, Elio spends his time drinking, loafing around town, and chasing after his old friend Marzia, portrayed by Esther Garrell. Every summer, Dr. Perlman hires a research assistant, and this year he invites the dashing 24-year-old Oliver, played by Armie Hammer, to stay at the family villa. At first, Elio and Oliver, who share a bed, barely speak to each other. Furtive glances lead to stronger ties, especially over their shared Jewish heritage, as both young men soak up the summer sun.

Emily & Kumail | The Big Sick

A medically induced coma isn’t often associated with romance, but it’s what helped and credited Emily V. Gordon and Kumail Nanjiani, the writers of The Big Sick, seal their relationship while also providing material for the film, in which Kumail also stars.
It sounds like something a group of romantic comedy writers might come up with – A Pakistani-American comedian falls in love with an American graduate student but is forced to keep the relationship a secret due to cultural expectations from his family. He decides to tell his family about the woman he loves only after she becomes suddenly ill and is placed in a medically-induced coma. The days Emily spent in a coma, according to Kumail, who plays himself in the film, were crucial to their relationship. Emily woke up from her coma, and she married Kumail three months later.

Ennis Del Mar &  Jack Twist | Brokeback Mountain

Brokeback Mountain, or also known as Ang Lee’s harrowing “Gay Cowboy Western,” is a love tale about two angsty ranch hands in Wyoming and their torturous, decades-long mountaintop love affair that leaves a hollowed-out ache in your stomach. It is still credited for its impressive portrayal and affection between two nineteen-year-old “cowboys” who grow old together, or rather apart.
Jack Twist, portrayed by Jake Gyllenhaal, and Ennis Del Mar, played by Heath Ledger, end up herding sheep and scarfing down beans by the light of a fire in the rugged peaks of Wyoming’s Brokeback Mountain one summer in the 1960s. Jack and Ennis, touch-starved and hypermasculine, initiate a romantic relationship after spending so much time with each other and just having a single tattered tent between them. The film is undeniably stunning. It is set in Wyoming, but it was shot in Alberta, Canada’s Canadian Rockies. The vast, elevated landscapes that surround Jack and Ennis’ relationship seem to be appropriate for this environment. Their love is spread so thin over such difficult terrain, and their meetings in the wooded mountains serve to highlight how marginalized they are in society.

Frances “Baby” Houseman & Johnny Castle | Dirty Dancing

Dirty Dancing was released in the summer of 1987, and it led to Jennifer Grey being dubbed “Baby” by everyone, which she didn’t seem to mind. With a $6 million investment budget, the film danced its way into the hearts of many moviegoers, becoming one of the decade’s classic romantic films and a dance-focused love tale that many dance films after it would definitely strive to be.
This film, directed by Emile Ardolino and written by Eleanor Bergstein, begins with a child. As she travels to Kellerman’s resort for a Catskills retreat, she meets a college-bound teenager who is on the brink of maturity and ready to fall in love. Dirty Dancing is a dream as well as a love tale in many respects. Most girls’ first boyfriends probably didn’t sweep them off their feet as Johnny Castle did for Frances “Baby” Houseman, but it wasn’t difficult to be swept away by the plot. The film’s popularity can be attributed to the simplicity of the love story, the classic soundtrack, the chemistry of the cast, and the time period in which it is set.

Gabriella Montez & Troy Bolton | High School Musical

The Disney Channel Original Movie High School Musical or HSM is a classic that gave us one of the greatest love stories of all time. Troy Bolton and Gabriella Montez’s story spanned three film investments and made us wish for a love song like that. Although, to be honest, we could probably do without the drama.
The film featured catchy songs and accompanying choreography, and it focused on basketball player Troy and book-smart Gabriella breaking the status quo at East High by auditioning for coveted roles in the school musical. The success of HSM led to the production of two more films, launching the careers of Zac Efron, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Tisdale, Lucas Grabeel, Monique Coleman, and Corbin Bleu. We might not know what happened to any of the protagonists since they graduated from high school, but they’re the epitome of true love, and we’re sure they’re the end game.

Ilsa Lund & Rick Blaine | Casablanca

“We’ll always have Paris.” This is one of the famous quotes from Michael Curtiz’s Casablanca, a Best Picture-winning wartime romantic film which is credited by some as the greatest Hollywood film ever made. It was released in 1942, during World War II, and continues to challenge and inspire viewers with its portrayal of noble virtue and selflessness triumphing over everything, including passionate romance. The film’s bittersweet ending is one of the most popular in cinema history, and it boldly reflects on the importance of memories and the sacrifices that true love often necessitates.
Casablanca is a timeless classic that will continue to be so as time passes. It tells us straight that true love often necessitates self-denial for the greater good, and it reassures us by reminding us that we can still remain linked to long-lost friends and lovers through our memories of them.

Jenna Rink & Matt Flamhaff | 13 Going on 30

13 Going on 30 is a fantasy romantic comedy film starring Jennifer Garner and directed by Gary Winick. It was adapted by Josh Goldsmith and Cathy Yuspa and released in 2004. It revolves around a 13-year-old girl who aspires to be famous. She is embarrassed by her peers at her birthday party and wishes she were 30 years old. After some magic wishing dust, she is suddenly 30 years old, with no idea how she got there.
While remaining firmly within the rom-com mold, the film dealt with many relatable teenage struggles, from mean girls in matching dresses to the awkwardness of puberty. Matt Flamhaff, portrayed by Mark Ruffalo, was the perfect best friend-prince charming to be paired with the struggling Jenna Rink, who was Jennifer’s character. Critics gave the film mostly favorable reviews, with many praising Jennifer’s performance and the film’s nostalgic setting. It was also credited for its amusing plot and message of self-empowerment. It was the fact that this film isn’t about life at 13 or 30.

Joanna Stayton/Annie & Dean Proffitt | Overboard

Overboard is a new take on the classic tale of the snob who discovers how the other half of the world lives. The male lead character is smug, stuck-up, and spoiled, and then something happens that changes him. He discovers modesty, appreciation, and love by the end of the film.
There are plenty of amusing little moments in the film, such as when Randy McDowall arrives on time with the caviar and is bawled out for possibly being late. If the film’s ending reminds you of The African Queen, it’s because the whole film is inspired by Humphrey Bogart and Katherine Hepburn’s relationship, in which a rude and crude man is civilized by a real lady. That evolution is crossbred in Overboard but with the heartless woman, Joanne Stayton or Annie, being civilized by a true gentleman, Dean Proffitt. It’s a pleasant process that results in a warm and amusing film credit.

Julia Sullivan & Robbie Hart | The Wedding Singer

The story is set in 1985, and both the scenery and the costumes are strikingly similar to the gaudy retro fashion of the wild period known as the 1980s, which was defined by something too big and too bright. Throughout the film, the script pokes fun at the 1980s in a lighthearted manner.
The Wedding Singer is a film about Robbie Hart, played by Adam Sandler, a former rock ‘n roll guitarist who is now trying to make ends meet as a singer at a banquet hall and teaching voice lessons. He becomes friends with Julia Sullivan, portrayed by Drew Barrymore, a young waitress while singing at a wedding reception. Both are engaged to the wrong people, and to their credit, they were completely unaware of it. They gradually discover each other as they assist each other in different ways – if only their mismatched partners didn’t get in the way.

Juliet & Romeo | Romeo + Juliet

From generation to generation, one classic tale has remained as timeless as love itself. Although Baz Luhrmann’s kaleidoscopic film adaptation of Romeo and Juliet leaves a lot to be desired in terms of delivery from the two key actors, it is a fascinating modern interpretation of the 16th-century drama.
The classic Romeo and Juliet tale is reimagined in the modern-day city of Verona Beach. Romeo, played by Leonardo DiCaprio, and Juliet, portrayed by Claire Danes, are children of two feuding families who meet and fall in love. Since they know their families will not allow them to be together, they must hide their love from the rest of the world. Although the Shakespearean dialogue is preserved, the Montagues and Capulets are portrayed as rival business empires, with swords replaced by arms. Baz skillfully upgrades his credit score and Shakespeare’s mission of educating the masses against the folly of ludicrous family feuds for the twenty-first century, preserving the moral point while making it more relatable to contemporary audiences.

Karen Sisco & Jack Foley | Out of Sight

George Clooney and Jennifer Lopez are two of the most incredible stars in the entertainment industry. When they got paired for the 1998 action-romance film, Out Of Sight, everybody just fell in love with their on-screen chemistry. They gave top-notch performances, with George as Jack Foley, who is a bank robber who escaped prison, and Jennifer as Karen Sisco, who is a United States Marshall chasing him. The twists and turns in this film are amazing.
The film garnered numerous nominations including Academy Awards for Best Writing and Screenplay Based on Material Previously Produced or Published. They also got nominated for the MTV Movie Awards for Best Kiss, giving credit to this amazing film couple. They also won the award for Writers Guild of America for Best Adaptive Screenplay. It became a box office hit at $77.7 million.

Kat Stratford & Patrick Verona | 10 Things I Hate About You

10 Things I Hate About You is a 1999 film starring the late Heath Ledger and renowned actress, Julia Stiles. They also worked alongside Joseph Gordon-Levitt in the movie. This film was loosely based on William Shakespeare’s The Taming Of The Shrew, using numerous character names from the play and putting a modern plot twist to it. Most of the filming took place in the metropolitan area of Seattle.
Giving credit to the amazing direction of Gil Junger, it highlighted the on-screen chemistry of Julia and Heath who portrayed the roles of Kat Stratford and Patrick Verona. The movie is titled after, spoiler alert, the poem Kat wrote about her bittersweet romance with Patrick. To this day, it remains to be one of the most popular teenage films that kids still go crazy for. After all who can’t help but fall in love with Heath and his dazzling eyes.

This movie was directed by Nora Ephron, and the investment money for the film that was allotted as its budget was $65 million. It became a box office garnering a whopping $250.8 million.
Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan have one of the most undeniable on-screen chemistry that is pretty hard to ignore. After all, they have already proven their amazing performance as a lovely couple in the 1993 film, Sleepless in Seattle. Meg played the role of Kathleen Kelly and Tom portrayed the character of Joe Fox. Spoiler alert, this couple initially hated each other, because Kathleen owned a local bookshop while Joe was the book superstore executive of the multi-national bookstore that might take her out of business.

Lara Jean Covey & Peter Kavinsky | To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before

This 2018 Netflix high school romantic comedy movie gained so much popularity ever since it was made available to the public. I bet you could not name a teenage girl who does not have a clue what this film is all about. To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before is part of the To All The Boys movie series. It was based on the best-selling novel with the same title written by Jenny Han.
Noah Centineo grew extremely popular from his role in the movie as Peter Kavinsky. After all, he is a dashing young man with smoldering good looks. He was paired up with the ever-so-gorgeous Lana Condor who played the sweet and charming Lara Jean Covey. Giving credit to Susan Johnson’s amazing direction. They are now one of history’s greatest on-screen couples in Hollywood. The movie was then followed up with To All The Boys: P.S. I Love You in 2020 and To All The Boys: Always And Forever, which came out February 2021.

Maria & Tony | West Side Story

West Side Story is a 1961 romantic musical directed by Robert Wise and Jerome Robbins. This is basically one of the best movies of all time as it won a total of 10 Academy Awards in 1962, including the Academy Award for Best Picture. It is also still the musical film with the most Academy wins. It is important we give credit to Natalie Wood and Richard Beymer for their incredible performances in the movie.
This must-watch film was inspired by William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. Richard Beymer played the role of Tony, the founder of the gang called The Jets, while Natalie Wood played  Maria, who is the sister of The Sharks gang leader or Tony’s rival gang. It is a classic tale of two lovers who are not supposed to be together. Make some popcorn and plop down the sofa, it is time to fall in love with the cutest on-screen couple of the sixties.

Mary Fiore & Steve Edison | The Wedding Planner

We have complaints here, Matthew McConaughey is indeed a dreamboat. He is still one of the hottest male celebrities of all time and still our favorite leading man. He has starred in numerous romantic comedies and one of his impeccable performances was highlighted in the 2001 movie The Wedding Planner.
This movie got nominated at The Teens Choice Award for Choice Movie Chemistry.

However, Olivia and John didn’t just make people in love on screen; they were a couple in real life too. As you might expect, their relationship was a dream come true for their fans when the couple first announced it. Just imagine your childhood dream screen couple becoming a couple in real life.

GWTW is a movie that needs no introduction. It is one of the most legendary stories the world has ever witnessed. Clark Gable and Vivien Leigh did a fantastic job as lovers on screen.

Maggie Cheung and Tony Leung Chiu-Wai both delivered beautiful performances as lead characters Su Li-Zhen and Chow Mo-wan in the 2000 Hong Kong romantic drama film In the Mood for Love.

Suzy & Sam | Moonrise Kingdom

Suzy and Sam represent young love in the timeless and undying film the Moonrise Kingdom.

These two definitely deserve all the credit for making the characters more charismatic. Not too long after the film’s release in 2012, these two became a favorite couple. While some people doubt whether this film is the right choice to see during family night, most people agree that the film is charming and diverse.
The supporting acts of superstars Edward Norton and Bill Murray also added an incredible take to the 1 hour and 35 minute-long dramatic/romantic comedy film. The voice of narrator Bob Balaban is not to be taken for granted either since it is one of the main factors for the movie’s success. The story revolves around Sam, who is a 12-year-old orphan.

Tess Harding & Sam Craig | Woman of the Year

Because of the pair’s undeniable chemistry, they also managed to create a friendship outside of the big screen. Gaining a friend while earning some investment money sure sounds nice, doesn’t it?
What made this movie even more relevant is that Tiffany and Pat’s relationship respresents millions of people around the world suffering from mental struggles. The two main characters have Bipolar Disorder associated with depression. Tiffany’s husband was a cop, and he just passed away, leaving her with an extreme need for physical attachment.

Mulder & Scully | The X-Files

Mulder and Scully are the “it” on-screen couple because of their roles in the hit sci-fi show The X-Files. Sadly these two never became a couple in real life, although there were so many speculations that they were. The two actors suit each other so much and complement each other so well that it was almost unbearable to admit that they never got together in real life.
The makers of the show clearly made all the right investments in actors Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny. They were a perfect choice all along. The show ran for a total of 11 seasons from 1993 to 2002. The two portrayed the roles of agents specializing in paranormal activities perfectly, that every episode is nerve-wracking with heartbeat skipping scenes from these two. This show is highly recommended even for the young adults of today.

Damon & Elena | The Vampire Diaries

The Vampire Diaries is one of the most successful TV shows in the world. Critics even hailed it as the most-watched TV show during their time under their channel. Unfortunately, though, some good things must come to an end, and the show’s rating rapidly declined after the near end of season 5, when Nina Dobrev, the main female cast who played Elena, quit the show.
Prior to that, however, Dobrev and Somerhalder enjoyed being one of Hollywood’s favorite on-screen couples. Otherwise known as Delena, Damon and Elena had a thrilling love story packed with chemistry. In real life, people were rooting for these two to be together, and they did. They dated for a while until Somerhalder decided to settle down with Twilight actress Nikki Reed.

Seth and Summer had a whirlwind romance and a roller coaster love story. They belonged to the wealthy and upper-class community of Orange County, hence the title of the show.

They have a platonic relationship at first, but after several years of being just friends, they finally see each other differently and start a relationship. It took them about eight seasons to finally get together and fulfill the legendary Lois and Clark tandem, but it was all well worth it.  That is probably why their tandem was a hit. Their story was built by anticipation and thought well by the writers. To a certain degree, the hints of their underlying affection for one another made them gush-worthy.

Second, their undeniable screen chemistry makes Paul and Jamie’s relationship believable. Some even thought that the actors might have feelings for each other, but no.

Jim and Pam | The Office

They say the best part of having a romantic relationship is the thrill of the chase and the sensual tension. The very reason why Jim and Pam of the hit TV show The Office became a famous couple.
Everybody must agree that the credits are due to the fantastic work done by John Krasinski and Jenna Fischer in portraying their characters, Jim and Pam. Their on-screen chemistry is very believable that some fans thought that they could be together in real life. Apparently not, as the two actors are with their respective spouses. Likewise, some also thought that their relationship was more interesting during their courting stage. According to reviews, their thrilling office romance died down when they got married and had children. Well, it seems true-to-life, like marriage, according to some, takes down some of the fun parts of romance as two are already in a serious and steady commitment.

April Ludgate-Dwyer and Andy Dwyer | Parks and Recreation

Parks and Recreation are to credit for the speeding career of Chris Pratt today. Pratt got picked by the makers of Guardian’s of the Galaxy to play Star-Lord due to his hilarious role as Andy Dwyer in the said sitcom. While he is now known as a hunk and action movie star, no one can ever forget his hilarious team-up with Aubrey Plaza as April Ludgate-Dwyer.
April and Andy are seemingly match made in heaven. Basically, they get each other and find unusual things sweet, like when Andy sends his laundry to April to wash, while the world finds it annoying. Their misfit coupling is what makes them a likable couple. Most of the time, Andy and April are failing hard in marriage. However, their love for each other and their not-so-serious approach to things make them a somewhat admirable couple. Some may even think that their off-the-rack immaturity is unbelievable, but April and Andy are in the same phase, the reason they are compatible with each other.

Dre and Rainbow Johnson | Black-ish

Black-ish is a sitcom that details the life of an African-American family who managed to live their everyday lives with a bit of dysfunctionality. As in a comedy sitcom, the families’ run-through of mishaps often gets sugarcoated with humor. Yet, it does not hide that family life is not simple, and every family has its own dynamics, and so is every couple. Dre and Rainbow Johnson are perfect examples of a couple who struggle in balancing life and work.
Andre and Rainbow Johnson’s parenting style and their semi-unconventional relationship are very relatable, and that makes them a beloved couple on screen. In the recent update of Dre and Rainbow Johnson’s relationship, the couple is seemingly going through hard times and facing a marriage breakdown. While they worked hard in the past to make things work for them and their family, the inevitable has finally reached them. Will they get through this, or will a lawyer character soon grace the show? That is something that everyone will have to watch out for.

Claire & Phil Dunphy | Modern Family

Julie Bowen acted as Claire alongside her co-star Ty Burell, who took the role of Phil in the hit series Modern Family. Their characters in the show play overwhelmed parents and a somehow dysfunctional couple who appears to be quite the messy pair trying to weather the complexities of being married. Phil’s character is one of the most comically endearing vision of a wannabe cool dad on television.  Meanwhile, Claire’s character is a high string but not totally overbearing mother.
Although the couple’s degree in chemistry is undeniable on-screen, they live quite a different life from their characters. Phil is a loving father and partner to his wife, Holly.

Out of all the television couples to come out of the late 2000s, Chuck, played by Ed Westwick, and Blair, played by Leighton Meester, is perhaps one, if not the most iconic duo of them all. While Chuck bass won over the audiences with his rich boy charms and gallant boyfriend person, Blair rose to the occasion as the scheming socialite primadonna who’s ready to go the distance for the people she loved. Their characters were great individually, but putting them together as a couple was simply a masterful touch, and all the credit goes to the writers of the show.
Despite their strong chemistry together, both actors didn’t get into a relationship with each other. Leighton is now a loving wife to her husband and a doting mother to her two children. On the other hand, Ed is in a happy relationship with model Tamara Francesconi. The pair went public with their relationship back in 2019.
