There are a number of famous people who, for some reason, get together and start dating either while they are filming a movie together or after filming a movie together in which they are supposed to be a pair. However, much like other kinds of typical love, it doesn’t always have the finest possible outcome. Sometimes the fire is extinguished on its own after a period of time, and other times a third party is engaged, which turns the entire situation into a disaster that the tabloids are going to adore.
Let’s take a look at some prominent on-screen couples who were never able to make it work in real life, regardless of who was involved or why the relationship didn’t work out.
Both Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman are in this.
After first meeting each other at an audition for the film Days of Thunder, this couple quickly rose to prominence as Hollywood’s most desirable couple. After working together in a number of films, everyone was taken aback when Tom Cruise filed for divorce from Katie Holmes in the year 2001. There is a persistent urban legend that suggests that had something to do with him becoming extremely tied to Scientology at that time; nevertheless, no one will ever really know what was going through Tom’s mind at that time.
Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck
The only positive thing that could be said about that awful Daredevil movie was how it affected Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck’s relationship. They had met a few years before on the set of Pearl Harbour, but it wasn’t until they were working together on Daredevil that they started developing affections for each other. There is nothing quite like the worst comic book movie in the history of cinema to bring people together, am I right? They made the announcement of their breakup the day after their tenth wedding anniversary.
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie
While filming Mr. & Mrs. Smith together, Pitt was captivated by Jolie’s charisma, despite the fact that he was already married to Jennifer Aniston at the time. It took them some time to acknowledge that they were dating and to truly commit to the relationship. However, after getting married in 2014 (11 years after the film, if you’re keeping track), they split barely two years later, and Brangelina is no longer a thing.
Chris Pratt and Anna Faris in a movie
Even though they shared the same community throughout their childhood, they did not become acquainted until the filming of Take Me Home Tonight. Chris Pratt made his proposal to Faris not long after she finalised her divorce, despite the fact that she was still legally married at the time. They decided to end their marriage in 2017, which caught everyone by surprise, but they continue to have respect for one another and hope for the best for the other.
Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan
After meeting each other on the set of Step Up and proceeding directly to the altar to exchange vows, this pair eventually discovered that they were unable to keep their love alive and filed for divorce in 2018. No one is aware of the reason, and it is not very relevant to our concerns even if we did.
Both Ryan Phillippe and Reese Witherspoon are in this picture.
This was another acting couple that we never imagined would go their separate ways, similar to Nicole Kidman and Tom Cruise. They made their debut as a romantic pairing on-screen in the film Cruel Intentions, and shortly thereafter, they tied the knot in real life. Witherspoon was already pregnant with her first kid at the time, which would eventually lead to the couple’s separation in 2006 when she gave birth to her child. Reese stated that she did not have any regrets about her life, although she did acknowledge that she got married and had children before she truly understood who she was. That’s a pretty grown-up and sensible justification for calling it quits, if we’re talking about reasons for a divorce.
Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams in a movie
If you’ve seen The Notebook, you already know that Ellie and Noah are going to end up together in the end. Their relationship got off to a rocky start, with neither person being fond of the other and even apparently yelling at each other behind closed doors when they couldn’t be overheard. The romance, sadly, also came to an end in the same way.
