When you’re spending day after day acting out some of the most passionate and romantic scenes in cinema and television, it’s understandable that the lines might get blurred.

So it’s not too surprising that plenty of A-list stars have wound up in relationships with the co-stars they’ve acted out love scenes with.

We’ve rounded up some of the most prolific celebrity couples who got together after acting alongside each other, and while it’s not always the recipe for lasting love, quite a few of the famous pairs have managed to go the distance after first finding love on set.

Here are 22 of the most memorable...

  • Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton

    Where did they meet?
    Despite both being married at the time, Liz and Dick quickly fell in love on the set of the 1963 film 'Cleopatra'.

    Did it last?
    Their tumultuous first (first!) marriage lasted a decade, with the two divorcing in 1974. They later decided to give it another go, marrying for a second time in 1975, though this lasted just a year.

    Elizabeth married a further twice, as did Richard.
  • Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt

    Where did they meet?
    The two got together shortly after Brad's split from ex-wife Jennifer Aniston, which followed the release of his and Angelina's film, 'Mr And Mrs Smith'.

    Did it last?
    For more than a decade, Brangelina was the golden couple of Hollywood, tying the knot in 2014, in a private ceremony attended by their six children.

    However, celeb lovers' hearts everywhere were broken in 2016, when it was reported the two were seeking a divorce.
  • Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson

    Did it last?
    The pair were famously silent on their relationship throughout the 'Twilight' series, but in 2015 they split, following the publication of pictures of Kristen spending with director Rupert Sanders.

    The pair's romance lasted just a year, and they confirmed their split in December 2006, after growing apart while filming separate projects in different continents.

    Where did they meet?
    The pair both served as coaches on the US version of 'The Voice', and in 2015 and rumours they had started a romance soon began circulating. We just feel bad for Alicia Keys being stuck in the middle of them...

    The two were married for seven years, until announcing their separation in 2017. They have one child, a son called Jack.

    Where did they meet?
    Taylor Swift's film career was short-lived, but she starred opposite Mr Lautner in the oft-forgotten romantic comedy 'Valentine's Day'.

    It's safe to say that the Taylors are never, ever, ever getting back together.
  • Rachel Bilson and Adam Brody

    Where did they meet?
    Our little noughties hearts were positively overflowing when Summer and Seth's 'O.C.' romance spilled over into the real world.

    Where did they meet?
    The two had known each other for decades, but it was only when they worked on 'Swing Shift' together that things turned romantic.

    We haven't seen 'Swing Shift', so we're not sure exactly why Goldie is holding a giant magnet on her head, but we're sure it has something to do with the plot.

    Did it last?
    As of September 2017, Kurt and Goldie are still going strong.
  • Madonna and Warren Beatty

    As anyone who's seen 'In Bed With Madonna' will tell you, Warren was not particularly comfortable with his girlfriend's love of the limelight, and by the end of the documentary, she was a single woman again.

    Despite a few setbacks, including in 2013, when Emma was arrested following a physical altercation with Evan, the two are still together, confirming they had become engaged for a second time in January 2017.

    Where did they meet?
    On the set of their film 'The Last Song' (nah, us neither, but the book was written by Nicholas Sparks, so we're expecting some class of 'Notebook'-esque blubfest).

    Did it last?
    The two separated while Miley's 'Bangerz' period began its ascent, but have since reunited.
  • Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem

    Undeniably one of the most popular celeb couples of the 21st century, they began dating after growing close on the set of 'The Amazing Spider-Man'.

    Did it last?
    *sigh* No it didn't, but the two have remained friends - and she apparently spent a lot of time watching him in 'Angels In America' in 2017 - so we haven't totally given up hope.

    After dancing up a storm on the set of 'Step Up', Channing and Jenna became an item in 2006, and married three years later.
