We've seen many marriage breakups in Hollywood because co-stars got a little too close. And rather than learn from past celebs, some of these A-listers are following in their footsteps, pushing the boundaries of friendship. So we have to wonder if some of our favourite married actors of today are on their way to divorce as well.
We can imagine how easy it would be to get close to someone on-set. After all, you are often filming for months at a time and the people you meet are the ones that you spend most of your time with. Even if you are married, it can be easy to feel lonely and want to have a best friend while working. But many times, these budding friendships have turned into something so much more. We’ve seen so many scandals in Hollywood that involved high-level celebrities who hooked up while on-set and broke up their marriages. Some of those hookups turned into relationships afterward. Sometimes, it’s just too risky to mix business with pleasure. While actors are no different from other people when it comes to falling for a fellow colleague, the difference is, they can't hide the sexual tension between them. When there's cameras following you around day in and day out, it's hard to hide the fierce and very real chemistry between some of these actors. Here are 15 Married Celebrities who are too close to their costars.
15 Kaley Cuoco And Johnny Galecki
These two just can’t seem to get enough of each other. Are they eventually going to get back together again? Kaley Cuoco and Johnny Galecki got together secretly when The Big Bang Theory first started out and for a while, they kept their relationship a secret. It wasn’t meant to be, however, and the relationship eventually ended. They moved on to other people and Kaley Cuoco got married. That marriage didn’t last either, and many people speculate it was because Kaley Cuoco and Johnny Galecki were secretly hooking up again behind the scenes. The two have always had great chemistry onscreen and off, so who’s to say what’s really going on. Only time will tell if those two are getting back together, but there’s no denying the rumours that say their relationship was what killed Cuoco’s marriage. What do you think?
14 Ewan McGregor And Mary Elizabeth Winstead
Ewan McGregor and Mary Elizabeth Winstead were costars in Fargo, and just this year, they decided to get together. That was a big surprise since Ewan McGregor was married for 22 years, but it was released recently that he decided to break things off with his wife. Many felt that there was probably something going on between the co-stars because they got together quite quickly after his separation. There was a photo that was released of Ewan and Mary kissing, and many people believe that it was that photo that caused the split with his wife. However, Ewan claims he split with his wife prior to that photo. Sounds pretty shifty to us. The Sun was the one that released the photo of the couple kissing at a West London Café. Many are happy for the new couple, but it just goes to show, we never really know what happens on-set.
13 Brad Pitt And Angelina Jolie
This was one of the more epic examples of how costars get tangled up while on-set and mess up their married lives. Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston were considered to be the golden couple and seem to be happily married for seven years. Not to mention the fact that Aniston is a total babe. But then came Mr. & Mrs. Smith, and well, the rest is history. There were plenty of rumours about Angelina fooling around with Brad onset, but they denied it the whole time. The next thing we knew, Aniston and Pitt were splitting up and soon after that, Brad and Angelina were a couple. None of it came as a shock to anyone, we all just wondered why they lied for so long. We doubt that Pitt feels like a winner these days, however, given that he and Jolie are now over and Jolie has been feeding him to the wolves ever since.
12 Chris Pratt And Bryce Howard
Chris Pratt was at it again, but this time it was with his Jurassic World co-star Bryce Howard. She bawled like a baby at the end of filming Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom and then gave him the tightest hug known to man. We don’t blame her one bit, we’ve seen his abs, but it was just another case of Pratt getting cozy with his costar. Again, this is all in the midst of his split from Anna Faris, and we just feel so bad for her. She must have wanted to die every time she went onto social media and seen her husband in yet another embrace with a co-star. He’s not exactly one to hide it; his own personal Instagram is full of pictures of him and his costars with the hashtag #BFF. It can be a lot for a stay-at-home-wife and mother to handle. Especially when her husband is so very handsome.
11 Taylor Kitsch And Rachel McAdams
These two have considered themselves “friends for years” as well as co-stars on the TV show True Detective. The two, while being on the show, were also in relationships with other people, and we have to assume they were fond of each other during those relationships. They had the connection to be friends. Once the two of them became single, it was only a matter of time before they got together. The two have been pretty private about the relationship which is pretty much Rachel McAdams MO. She always keeps her relationships private for as long as possible. She did the same thing when she was dating Ryan Gosling. There have been rumours, lately, that McAdams and Kitsch have recently split, but it can’t be confirmed right now. Only time will tell if these two are still together. We would love nothing more than to see McAdams happy, though.
10 Marilyn Manson And Evan Rachel Wood
Marilyn Manson and Evan Rachel Wood caused crazy scandals when they decided to work together on Manson’s music video Phantasmagoria: The Visions of Lewis Carroll. We never got these two from the beginning. At the time, Manson was dating Dita Von Teese, but that didn’t seem to stop Manson from pursuing the very young Wood. People went nuts when rumours were going around of the two hooking up on set. Von Teese bailed on the relationship and Wood and Manson got engaged. We couldn’t figure out why Wood would ever go near Manson, she is young and beautiful and, well, he isn’t. She must have been after him for his mind and literally nothing else. Wood did eventually break off the engagement and will hopefully move on to better pastures. Maybe she found out that he was cheating on her as well.
9 Ryan Gosling And Emma Stone
These two have been in multiple movies together like Crazy, Stupid, Love and La La Land, and they are over the moon about each other. You would think they would be the perfect couple, especially when you see them at events together all cuddled up. As cute as they are, the two sometimes sicken us with all the nice things they say about each other— no one likes each other that much! Gosling actually once said, “Show me someone that wouldn't give it all up for Emma Stone, and I'll show you a liar." That an intense thing to say about a woman who isn't your wife. So why aren’t these two together? Oh, right, Ryan Gosling is married to Eva Mendes who he shares a child with. There have been rumours of their rocky relationship, and we have to wonder how Mendes deals with this constant love fest between Gosling and Stone.
8 Chris Pratt And Jennifer Lawrence
Chris Pratt and his gorgeous wife, Anna Faris, have recently separated and many people couldn’t help but wonder if it had anything to do with his ultra-friendly relationship with his co-star Jennifer Lawrence. When the news of the separation came out, fans were quick to blame Lawrence for it. After all, for many years, Pratt and Faris have been total #relationshipgoals because they were so amazing together. They were two comedians who seemed to genuinely adore one another. They laughed together and enjoyed life, and we couldn’t figure out what went wrong. Then Pratt started getting great movie roles and then getting super fit while Faris was staying at home with their son, and all of a sudden, things started to fall apart. Is it possible that the two had cracks in the surface? Or is there a chance that Faris got sick of seeing all the Instagram photos of Lawrence and Pratt together on a hammock or giggling together on-set. Regardless of how confident a woman is, that's got to hit a nerve.
7 Lily Collins And Jamie Campbell Bower
Jamie Campbell Bower used to date his co-star Bonnie Wright, so he apparently does have a habit of getting together with co-stars. We’re not sure if he was the one who broke it off with Wright, but there were rumours. When their relationship ended, he started dating Lily Collins, his co-star from the movie The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones. Hopefully, the new relationship wasn't the reason behind his break with Wright, but the timing of it all did start rumours. The two certainly look happy together, there is no denying that. Only time will tell with this co-star relationship. After all, they don’t always work out, and we have to wonder whether any of these celebs regret breaking off their relationship for a co-star.
6 Kristen Stewart And Rupert Sanders
Judging by the smirk on Kristen Stewart’s face and the fact that Rupert Sanders had his hand on her waist, the two were playing with fire long before they got caught. Sanders was the director of the movie Snow White and the Huntsman which Stewart starred in. They carried on the affair despite the fact that Sanders was married with multiple children and Stewart was dating that dreamy Robert Pattinson. What on Earth were they thinking? It was quite the scandal that ended a marriage, and let’s just say that the Twilight costars were never the same. Pattinson, although, tried to forgive her at first, but couldn’t handle it and broke up with her. During filming, Stewart made it pretty obvious she admired Sanders and would often ask him to go out for drinks so she could pick his brain about the script. She clearly had an ulterior motive.
5 James Cameron And Suzy Amis
James Cameron and Suzy Amis met on the set of Titanic and during filming, the two started an affair. She played the role of the elderly Rose’s granddaughter. At the time, James Cameron was married to badass Terminator alum Linda Hamilton. Why would he stray from her? Many were shocked by the split between Hamilton and Cameron because they were together for a long time. Not to mention Hamilton is a total babe. But Suzy Amis knew what she wanted, and considering she barely had a role in the movie; she landed herself a big shark with a lot of money and influence. Though we can’t say that she did a whole lot of acting afterward, she probably wanted to keep tabs on her husband since he has a rep of dating his movie actresses.
4 Katherine McPhee And Michael Morris
There are so many married couples that seem to find themselves in hot water. Why can’t they just go to work instead of fooling around with their co-stars? Katherine McPhee and Michael Morris are another couple that fooled around on-set when they shouldn’t have been. Michael Morris was the director of the movie Smash and Katherine McPhee had a role in the movie. Both of them were married to other people, so when this photo was released, it caused quite a scandal. It always amazes us that people will kiss out in public when they are having an affair. They just assume they won’t ever get caught. McPhee said she was already separated from her husband before the photo went live, but we aren’t sure we believe either of them. Both of them are now separated from their former spouses.
3 Ben Affleck And Jennifer Garner
Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner met on the set of Daredevil and they had instant chemistry. At the time, Ben Affleck was dating Jennifer Lopez and the two were engaged. That relationship crashed and burned, and the next thing we knew, he was with Jennifer Garner. The rumour mill went crazy suggesting that there was more than friendship between the two during filming. They were obviously into each other for them to start dating so quickly. Now they're separated because Affleck apparently cheated. Maybe Affleck just can’t be trusted to stay committed in a relationship. There’s just too much eye candy out there. When Garner and Affleck got together, they tried to keep it under wraps for as long as possible for obvious reasons, and were rarely ever seen together. They even got married out of the public eye.
2 Ryan Phillippe And Abbie Cornish
Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe were quite young when they met on the set of Cruel Intentions, but it was practically love at first sight. He attended her birthday party and when she saw him there, she asked if he was her birthday gift. Talk about sweet. It wasn’t long before they were a couple, got married, and had two children. Everything seemed perfect until Phillippe was filming the movie Stop-Loss and met co-star Abbie Cornish. The two started an affair that ended his marriage to Reese. After his marriage ended, he pursued the relationship with Cornish and it seemed like the two were going to make it work. Unfortunately, they also broke up and we have to wonder if Phillippe has any serious regrets about losing his wife and family for something that didn't even last long.
1 Chad Michael Murray And Sophia Bush
One Tree Hill fans went nuts when Chad Michael Murray and Sophia Bush got together in real life. They were a couple on the show, so we all loved it when they got together and eventually married. They were young, but we all adored their puppy love! Their marriage was short-lived, however, because Chad Michael Murray decided to fool around with another co-star. He got a role on House of Wax where he filmed with Paris Hilton. The two hooked up during filming, and when Sophia Bush found out, she couldn’t get out of the marriage fast enough. She had their marriage annulled and she made it known how disgusted she was with her ex-husband. The sad part was she still had to work with Murray on One Tree Hill afterward. She remained professional throughout and we are sure he has serious regrets about losing his beautiful wife.
