Celebrities - they’re just like us! And just like us mere mortals, many of them meet their other half at the workplace - only instead of fluorescent-lit cubicles, their ‘workplace’ usually includes exotic locations, fancy trailers and date-ready hair and makeup. Here is a list of celebrity couples who’ve met on set (+ bonus point: they’re all very much still together!):
1. Mila Kunis & Ashton Kutcher
Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher first met on the set of That '70s Show in the late 90s, when they were just teenagers - she was 14 and he was 19 - but other than exchanging some on-screen kisses (including Kunis’ first ever kiss) didn’t start any real-life romance. During the 2000s Kutcher was married to actress Demi Moore, and Kunis was in a long-term relationship with actor Macaulay Culkin.
They kept in loose touch, and finally reconnected in 2012 at the Golden Globe awards, after Kunis and Culkin had broken up and Kutcher was separated from Moore. They got married in 2015 and have two children.
2. Kit Harington & Rose Leslie
Kit Harington and Rose Leslie met in 2011 while filming the second season of the hit fantasy-show Game of Thrones, where their characters fell in love with each other. The on-screen love story soon also happened off-screen, and continued even after Leslie’s character (spoiler alert) was killed on the show.
The Couple initially tried to keep their relationship private, and made their red-carpet debut a few years later, in 2016. They got married in 2018 in a traditional Scottish wedding, in a castle owned by Leslie’s father.
3. Adam Brody & Leighton Meester
Adam Brody and Leighton Meester both rose to fame on two different teen-dramas that were big in the 2000s (Brody in The OC and Meester in Gossip Girl), but collaborated professionally for the first time only in 2010, in the indie movie The Oranges – where they also fell in love.
They got married in 2014 and had their first child, a daughter, a year later. In April 2020 it was revealed that Meester is pregnant with the couple’s second child.
4. Gwyneth Paltrow & Brad Falchuk
Gwyneth Paltrow and Brad Falchuk met in 2014 on the set of Glee, the hit musical show created by Falchuk and Ryan Murphy. Paltrow, recently-separated from husband Chris Martin, was a guest star on the second season of the show; and while her character was going through a fictional love story, behind the scenes a real romance was also blooming between her and Falchuk.
The couple was first spotted together in public in 2015, and got married in 2018. In 2019 they collaborated on a show again, this time on Netflix’s The Politician.
5. Anna Paquin & Stephen Moyer
Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer first met on the set of vampire-show True Blood, where Moyer played a vampire and Paquin his love interest.
According to him, the minute he saw Paquin on set, he felt like he was meant to share the rest of his life with her. The couple married in 2010 and are parents to twins. They also share a production company, which in 2019 was behind Flack, a new show starring Paquin.
6. Blake Shelton & Gwen Stefani
Singers-songwriters Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani met on the set of musical-reality show The Voice, where they were both acting as ‘Coaches’. Both Shelton and Stefani were going through high-profile divorces at the time (from singers Miranda Lambert and Gavin Rossdale, respectively) and supported each other in the difficult process - first as friends, and gradually as much more.
The couple currently lives in Los Angeles, and have even collaborated on a few songs since becoming an item.
7. Keri Russell & Matthew Rhys
Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys first met when they were in their 20s, but nothing romantic happened between them - though Rhys later admitted that he was quite smitten with the curly actress.
In 2014 the two met again on the set of The Americans, where they played married Russian spies – and this time, off-screen romance quickly followed. The couple has one son together, born in 2016, and are also co-raising Russell’s children from her previous marriage to Shane Deary.
8. Kirsten Dunst & Jesse Plemons
Kirsten Dunst and Jesse Plemons met in 2015 while playing married high school sweethearts on the second season of Fargo, when Dunst was still dating long-time boyfriend, actor Garrett Hedlund.
The two became good friends, and after Dunst and Hedlund separated their friendship evolved - and in 2016 they were photographed kissing. The couple got engaged in 2017, and in 2018 Dunst gave birth to their first child, a boy.
9. Lauren Graham & Peter Krause
Lauren Graham and Peter Krause first met in 1995 when they both were guest stars in the show Caroline in the City, and became friends. However, they only became a couple years later - in 2010 - when they met again on a tv show set, this time playing the roles of – brace yourselves - brother and sister on the show Parenthood.
The couple lives together in Los Angeles, and are co-raising Krause’s son from his relationship with ex-girlfriend Christine King.
10. Alyson Hannigan & Alexis Denisof
Alyson Hannigan and Alexis Denisof met in the late 90s when they were both playing fan-favorite characters on the cult show Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and later on its spin-off, Angel.
Even though they were busy vampire-slaying, they still found the time to fall in love IRL. They got married in 2003 and have two daughters, and remain one of Hollywood’s unbreakable couples.
