Fictional Couples Who Became Couples In Real Life


Love is everywhere! We’re always witnessing lovely and passionate couples in restaurants, at the cinema, or kissing on the park bench – but love goes even further than that.

Every movie or TV series features an on-screen couple, many of which end up falling for each other off-camera, too! Here is a beautiful selection of fictional couples that became couples in the real world. Enjoy!

Courtney Cox and David Arquette


They had a flirtatious relationship on screen while filming the movie Scream in 1996. They married in 2003 and had a daughter named Coco in 2004. Unfortunately their union did not last and they divorced in 2013.

Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively

This famous couple not only fell in love on the Vampire Diaries, but also away from the cameras, in real-life. They dated for three years, but their relationship ended, and Ian is now married to the actress Nikki Reed, who played Rosalie in the Twilight movies. Coincidence, much?

Emily Vancamp and Josh Bowman


Playing a couple on the ABC drama Revenge, laid the foundation for this couple to start dating in real life. Though their on screen romance was surrounded by murder, deception and of course revenge, we’re fairly certain their real life romance is less dramatic.
