8 Hollywood Couples Who Hit It Off On Set

Star Wars star, Carrie Fisher has admitted that she once had a fling with Harrison Ford when the two worked together on the set of Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope. The affair ended shortly after filming had completed, although the two reunited twice more on later Star Wars films during the 1980’s.

“It was so intense,” Fisher told People magazine. “It was Han and Leia during the week, and Carrie and Harrison during the weekend.”

Actors and actresses meeting on movie sets is surprisingly more common than one would think! Sometimes it may just result in a brief fling, as it was claimed to be between Fisher and Ford, but making movies have proven to have the ability to help actors discover their soul mate.

This editorial is going to take a look at a selection of ten accounts where two actors have come together in unity while making a motion picture.

Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson


The Twilight films may stereotypically be known as some kind of twisted “chick flicks” for females but it helped Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson meet and get together, although it was a well kept secret for a while.

Apparently, Pattinson loved the fact that Stewart constantly smiled! Yeah, you and I must be thinking the same after reading that.

Rachel Weisz and Daniel Craig


The movie Dream House was critically bashed and has now been mainly forgotten, but Craig and Weisz’ friendship evolved and blossomed into full time romance. The two are still married to this day. That must be hard work for her considering her actor partner’s alleged moodiness.

Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield


The Amazing Spiderman movies were not really worth making, were they? Let’s be honest. But the original must have at least two fans as Stone and Garfield hit it off. It is good to know that their romance is the only thing to have carried on since, and not more mediocre Spiderman sequels!

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt


Probably known as the most famous film set get together of all time, Jolie and Pitt met on the set while making the modern action classic Mr & Mrs. Smith. The pair had been together for over a decade but their split was announced earlier this year due to many reasons unknown.

It seems that Jennifer Aniston has had the last laugh.

Nicole Kidman and Tom Cruise


Scientologist Tom Cruise and Australian actress Nicole Kidman met while working together on the set of the vehicular action movie, Days of Thunder. It was another romantic Hollywood tale that lasted over ten years before Cruise and Kidman split in 2001. That infamous crazy moment by Cruise when interviewed by Oprah was still yet to happen.

Katie Holmes must still be cringing!

Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell


It is common knowledge that relationships between actors in Hollywood do not normally last long but Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn have set a solid example to future couples after remaining together for 30 years. And are still going! The pair met while filming Swing Shift in 1983.

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner


There seem to be no end to the slagging off that 2003’s Daredevil starring Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner, took and is taking. But that has not jinxed the couple’s 13 year relationship, who are happily married.

It is a good thing that making critically panned movies does not affect marriages or the couple probably would have broken up long ago!

David Arquette and Courtney Cox

Although unfortunately now separated, Cox and Arquette met while making the exemplary horror film, Scream in 1996. Their characters also had an “in -film” romantic affair that was on and off. The couple eventually split after an 11 year marriage together. Life really can imitate art!
