When two characters fall in love in a movie, it’s only natural for fans to start shipping the actors behind the characters in real life.
On-screen couples always tend to have the perfect chemistry, but in some cases, there’s a lot more to it than just brilliant acting! Yep, believe it or not, some of your favorite pairs have ended up falling in love IRL, and even better, they actually got married.
That’s right, a ton of your favorite on-screen couples had romantic relationships off-screen, and frankly, every time two favorite stars get together, it’s always a big deal.
Take Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth, for example. They both starred in the movie The Last Song together, and when they took their love off the screen and into real life, it was pretty epic.
What about Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens? We were all pretty much living for the High School Musical stars’ relationship back in the day. They weren’t the only Disney stars to strike up an adorable romance. Let us not forget the time that Joe Jonas and Demi Lovato decided to give their love a shot after playing romantic interests in Camp Rock back in 2010.
Costars falling for one another goes far beyond Disney Channel. Outer Banks stars Chase Stokes and Madelyn Cline sent fans into a tizzy when they confirmed their relationship in 2020.
Although there were rumors the costars met as extras on a different show, Chase set the record straight that he and Madelyn first met a couple of weeks before filming the Netflix show while speaking with Life & Style in July 2020.
“I’ve heard a couple of speculations out there that we met on Stranger Things,” the Maryland native said. “We actually never met. She did season 2 — I did season 1, and I was there for, you know, a millisecond. So if you blink, you’ll miss me. She definitely had the bigger part out of the two of us.”
That being said, the actor gushed that he feels “so lucky” to work alongside his girlfriend. “We’re both absolutely obsessed with our job, and so to go to work with your partner and to go work on a project that you kind of have always dreamed of doing … is super exciting,” he added.
They’re definitely not the only ones. Scroll through our gallery to uncover all of the on-screen couples who dated in real life.
