When it comes to TV shows and movies, almost every one has a love story incorporated. Whether it is the married couple or the new romance, most relationships on shows, stay on screen. However, over the years we see more and more on-screen romances, that expand to off-screen. Good idea, or not so much? Here’s our rundown.
On-screen romances are successful for one reason only, they’re fake. As much as we all loved Ross and Rachel on Friends, the relationship was full of more struggle than any two people would deal with. However, for some shows, like CW’s One Tree Hill, co-stars get pretty cozy with each other on screen and off. Brooke Davis, played by the gorgeous Sophia Bush used to play the popular, head cheerleader, who got all the guys. Well, her real life may or may not relate. We’re betting on the first.
In 2003, Sophia Bush began dating co-star Chad Michael Murray, whom she married in ’05. However, their marriage sadly ended after just one year. In 2008, Bush was seen cozying up with the other brother on the hit show, James Lafferty. Most recently Bush had been publicly dating Austin Nichols, her current husband on the TV show. The couple sadly have ended their relationship after being on and off for years.
Do you think that will be the end for Sophia Bush dating co-stars? She has made it clear that it may be a better idea to leave work… at work. Here’s a few other on-screen romances that were turned into more and didn’t really work out:
Ryan Gosling & Rachel McAdams: The Notebook
Adam Brody & Rachel Bilson: The OC
Justin Timberlake & Britney Spears: The Mickey Mouse Club (we had to!)
David Arquette & Courtney Cox: Scream
Heath Ledger & Michelle Williams: Brokeback Mountain
Vince Vaughn & Jen Aniston: The Break Up
Zac Efron & Vanessa Hudges: High School Musical
Ben Afflek & Jennifer Lopez: Gigli
Ryan Philipee & Reese Witherspoon: Cruel Intentions
On a more positive note, here’s a few that are working:
Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie: Mr. & Mrs. Smith
Ben Afflek & Jennifer Garner: Daredevil
Freddie Prince Jr. & Sarah Michelle Gellar: I Know What You Did Last Summer
