We just seem to have a fascination with film stars who have dated don’t we? It’s probably because sometimes an on-screen chemistry can look so real, it just seems unbelievable that the two aren’t dating (or hooking up at the very least). Often, however, our suspicions are revealed to be true! Take a look at some of the couples who got together for real after dating on screen!
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt – Mr. & Mrs. Smith
At one time, this pair was certainly the ‘power-couple’ of Hollywood. The two worked together as the leads on action-romance film Mr. & Mrs. Smith, and the on-screen chemistry seemed too real to be fake. Pitt was married to Jennifer Aniston at the time, and when it was announced that they were getting divorced, rumors circulated that it was because of Jolie. Rumors were confirmed months later when it was revealed that Jolie was pregnant, with Pitt the father. Jolie and Pitt finally married in 2014, but they were divorced only two years later.
Vanessa Hudgens and Zac Efron – High School Musical
Was this truly the start of something new? Well, we all hoped so! High School Musical was a major success when it hit our screens on Disney Channel, with Troy and Gabriella (Efron and Hudgens) becoming adored for their on-screen relationship. The chemistry again felt too real and the pair began dating in real life! “Right off the bat, we had a connection, I think everybody could see it,” Hudgens revealed to Glamour in 2010. “Now, I guess [we have a mature relationship]. I think that we inspire each other. [I love] having someone to grow with.” Unfortunately, their sweet courtship came to it’s conclusion later that year.
