10 Couples Who Fell in Love and Got Married Because of TVB | JayneStars.com
With TVB’s long filming hours, co-stars get to know each other very well after working together on a drama. The station has also brought together many couples, who eventually got married. Aside from Ruco Chan (陳展鵬) and Phoebe Sin (單文柔), who met through Miss Hong Kong 2016, many artistes fell in love and got married because of TVB.
Below are 10 couples who found their spouses through TVB dramas:
Tavia Yeung (楊怡) and Him Law (羅仲謙)
The two met and developed romantic feelings at the set of The Hippocratic Crush <On Call 36小時>. Although they initially denied dating, Tavia and Him eventually admitted they were together in 2012, and later got married in England in 2016.
Sarah Song (宋熙年) and Jason Chan (陳智燊)
The couple got married in 2016 after dating for seven years. Sarah and Jason met while hosting TVB lifestyle show, Dolce Vita <港生活．港享受>. With Sarah and Jason being born respectively in Australia and England, the couple grew closer by conversing in English. After getting married, they opened a Youtube vlog where they would share their daily marriage life. Recently, Sarah gave birth to a baby boy, so the couple are getting used to being new parents.
Aimee Chan (陳茵媺) and Moses Chan (陳豪)
The couple fell in love with each other while filming Master of Play <心戰>. After two years of dating, they got married in Paris in 2013. Within three years, Aimee gave birth to two boys and one girl, and drastically reduced her work schedule to be a full-time mom.
Leanne Li (李亞男) and Wong Cho Lam (王祖藍)
Considered as the most unexpected couple with their height differences, Cho Lam revealed he was dating Leanne in 2010. Although, they were TVB colleagues, they didn’t know each other well until they began going to the same church. Developing slowly as friends, Cho Lam eventually confessed his love for Leanne. After five years of dating, Cho Lam proposed to Leanne under the witness of all their colleagues, best friends and family during a TVB Anniversary event. They registered their marriage in 2015. Leanne is currently seven months, with a due date in December.
Grace Chan (陳凱琳) and Kevin Cheng (鄭嘉穎)
The two are unaffected by their 22-year age difference and believes age is just a number in love. They started dating after filming Blue Veins <僵>. Although Kevin knew Grace is Ms. Right, he wanted to give her time to explore her career before tying the knot. The couple held their wedding in Bali, Indonesia in August.
Helen Ng (吳香倫) and Chan Wing Chun (陳榮峻)
Helen Ng and Chan Wing Chun are well-known green-leaf actress and actor, who fell in love in 2014 after filming Glided Chopsticks <食為奴>. They dated for three years before getting officially married in July this year. This is Wing Chun’s second marriage after his wife passed away from a stroke in 2010. Although this is a sunset romance, the two seniors are happy to have a companion in the last segment of their lives together.
Cindy Au (歐倩怡) and Roger Kwok (郭晉安)
The pair first met on a travel program and have been together ever since. When they first started dating, Cindy was only 19 years old, and Roger was already 35 years old. Roger gave Cindy some time to “grow up” before the couple got married in 2006. Their 12-year marriage remains strong and continues to bloom in happiness with their two children.
Amy Kwok (郭藹明) and Sean Lau (劉青雲)
Married for 20 years, they are envied by many for their sweet and loyal relationship. They first met on the set of The Greed of Man <大時代>, but didn’t start dating until their mutual friend, Vivian Chow (周慧敏), invited them to attend her concert. Since marrying Sean, Amy has largely retired from acting.
Carina Lau (刘嘉玲) and Tony Leung (梁朝偉)
Carina and Tony were TVB colleagues and starred in dramas The Clones <再版人>, Police Cadet ’84 <新紮師兄>, > and The Royal Tramp <鹿鼎記>. At the time, Tony was dating Carina’s good friend, Margie Tsang (曾華倩), while Carina was involved with businessman, Julian Hui (許晉亨). After working together on a theatrical project Tony grew close to Carina and the couple started dating. Since Tony grew up in a single-parent household, he didn’t believe in marriage. The couple lived together for many years before Tony satisfied Carina’s wish to get married in 2008. This year marks as their 10th marriage anniversary.
Janice Shum (沈可欣) and Man Yeung (楊證樺)
Janice and Man knew each other for about 10 years as colleagues by working together in multiple dramas before they two slowly developed feelings for each other. They finally tied the knot in 2015, and Janice gave birth to two boys since then. She also recently revealed that she is pregnant again with her third child.

This article is written by Minna for JayneStars.com.
Let’s talk T.V.B.: TVB Couples
Myolie Wu & Bosco Wong
How can I not mention this cute couple in this post?! Bosco and Myolie have been together for 7 years! Their first drama together was ‘War Of In Laws’ which was the most funniest drama I’ve ever watched! In fact it was so popular that they have a modern version of it.
Last year Myolie had named as TV Queen and Bosco was mention in one of her speeches. It was a speech where she said that if she win an award then Bosco would go to the restroom. (Something like that)
I believe it was this one minute video!
(Credits should go to TVB and uploader)
Tavia Yeung & Kenneth Ma
(Not actually dating in real- life. Although, I wish they would)
I’ve mention earlier on how cute this couple are! I totally believes that Tavia and Kenneth in On Call 36 has made the drama more entertaining to watch! Check out ‘Kenneth Ma and Tavia Yeung, World cutest couple’ on this blog!
Vincent Wong and Yoyo Chen
This couple was married last year and already a family of three couldn’t be any happier for them. Married on 11.11.11! The proprosal started off as Vincent was on stage and praising his girlfriend and then he walk down the stage and in his arm was sunflower (Yoyo’s favourite). Vincent kneel down and propose in front of hundreds of people watching them.
Moses Chan and Aimee Chan
The sweetest couple in TVB would have to go these two. Moses and Aimee are so cute together. I would say that they should hurry and get marry! Don’t you guys think so?! I read somewhere that they have meet each other parents before, so fingercross that they could hurry and get marry!
Kristal Tin and Chapman To
Married since 2005. Chapman and Kristal is like every couple, there are times when they are very loving and there are time when they’re mood changes. Either way this couple is a very much loving couple. Very much in love.
Mimi Lo and Power Chan
Just recently did I relise that this couple is married. Not to mention that Mimi is pregnant which is a baby girl. Also for those who knew Mimi as an actress, she is a cantopop singer. To those who knew, well I just recently foud out, so I am a bit slow.
Ruco Chan and Tavia Yeung
(Again, another couple that I wish they would date in real life)
What can I say, Tavia is cute with every guy that she is pair with. Ruco and Tavia had so much chemistry in The Other Truth that I wish in the drama that Marvis would pick Keith. I so want them together. I mean Ruco is only two year older than her, isn’t that a perfect age gap. Say yes if you think so too.
Raymond Lam and Linda Chung
(Again, not dating in real life.)
How can I not mention this rumor couple in this post! It would be silly of me for not adding them as a couple. How many of you think that Raymond and Linda are cute? I reckon that Raymond is cute with every woman he is pair with. Raymond always played as the caring and adorable guy. Not to mention his goofy smiles. I personally like his character in, ‘My Sister Of Enternal Flower,’ opposite Charmaine Sheh. His character in the drama is so funny. I think I’m a little off topic here. Back to Raymond and Linda, I really like their sub song in Heart Of Greed.
Well if there are any couple that I missed and you would like to see in this post then please comment and I make sure I will add them in TVB Couples.
Is marriage of HK celeb couple Vincent Wong and Yoyo Chen on the rocks?, Entertainment News & Top Stories
The lack of interaction between Hong Kong actor Vincent Wong and his wife, actress Yoyo Chen, at the TVB Anniversary Awards has added more fuel to speculation that their marriage is on the rocks.
Wong, 37, was crowned Best Actor for his role as a blind lawyer in the legal drama Legal Mavericks 2020 on Sunday (Jan 10), but his wife was expressionless when the camera panned to her while he was thanking her on stage.
Chen, 39, gave Wong a quick hug when all the actors went on stage later, but she declined to take a photo with him backstage and told the Hong Kong media that she was “distracted” during his acceptance speech.
The actress, who was nominated for Best Supporting Actress on Sunday, returned home without her husband. Her good friend, actress Priscilla Wong and Wong’s husband, actor Edwin Siu, gave her a lift.
Meanwhile, Vincent Wong was seen outside TVB City celebrating his win with close to 20 fans and taking photos with them.
Both Chen and Wong also made no mention of each other on their subsequent posts on social media.
Chen’s expressionless moment trended in Hong Kong after the ceremony. Some netizens said that was the “most exciting” moment on Sunday night and that she was the “real best actress” on Sunday, while others praised her for her magnanimity in congratulating her husband.
Hong Kong actor Chapman To parodied the moment by posting a photo of him expressionless on social media.
Wong and Chen married in 2011 and they have an eight-year-old daughter.

However, there have been several rumours in recent years, with Wong linked to actresses such as Fala Chen, Jacqueline Wong and Kaman Kong.
He was recently linked to actress Sisley Choi, his co-star in Legal Mavericks 2020 who won Best Actress on Sunday. They have both denied the rumour.
Where are Ada Choi, Gallen Lo and other top TVB stars of the 1990s?
We were there when a career woman opened her bedroom door and discovered her husband cheating on her. We were there when a sly employee plotted a naive coworker’s downfall.
And we were there when a family of little means had their house smeared with red paint by loan sharks.
Seated on our sofas after a long day at school or at work, we were drawn to these colourful narratives brought to us by 1990s Hong Kong dramas.
There were a lot less viewing options back in the 1990s, without the advent of streaming services. So these dramas, which aired on many of our country’s free-to-air channels, formed a large part of our viewing experience.
Walk down memory lane as StarLifestyle counts down the top five iconic TVB shows of the 1990s here.
But first, all these vivid pictures wouldn’t be possible without the talented actors and actresses who painted them. We take a look at the top Hong Kong TV stars of the 1990s and find out what they’ve been up to in recent times.

Who can forget the plucky, gun-toting Ngor Jie that led the cast of cop drama Armed Reaction (1998)?
The popularity of Ngor Jie, a female sergeant serving in the Hong Kong Police Force, meant that female-driven stories weren’t just important –there was a demand for them.
Steering the iconic role is the talented Esther Kwan. After acting in two of the four Armed Reaction instalments, Kwan passed the mantle to Ada Choi.
She went on to make a name for herself with other popular dramas like The Legendary Four Aces but Kwan decided to slow things down after the birth of her daughter with husband Nick Cheung in 2006.
Kwan, now 55, has rarely acted since then. Most notably in 2013, she starred in Always And Ever, a romance drama which reunited her with her Armed Reaction co-star Bobby Au-Yeung.
Lawrence Ng gained the title “housewife killer” after playing the bespectacled Dr Paul Ching in the 1998 medical drama Healing Hands. And it’s no wonder, as he exuded a sense of wholesomeness and dependability, someone you would trust your life with, and of course, he was easy on the eyes to boot.
Since then, more “good guys” roles have followed, including two more instalments of Healing Hands and yet another turn as a doctor on 2013’s The Hippocratic Crush II.
But that wasn’t always the case. Way back when, Ng experimented with edgier characters like a promiscuous scholar in the Category III film, 1991’s Sex And Zen, and a corrupt lawyer in the 1994 film Hail The Judge.
On the personal front, Ng, now 55, has been married twice. His marriage to a Thai national, Varintra, lasted five years. He found love again with Chinese actress Shi Yangzi and remarried in 2007. The couple divorced in 2014. They have a daughter together.
Flora Chan didn’t get her start from the traditional Miss Hong Kong route. After graduation with a communications major from Boston University, she worked as a presenter on TVB’s English-language channel.
A director took notice and approached her to star in the fifth instalment of popular legal drama File Of Justice in 1997.
Chan grew from strength to strength, nabbing numerous lead roles in highly-rated dramas such as Healing Hands and Triumph In The Skies.
She married her manager Mike Chung in 2006. Chan then took a step back from acting to care for their daughter.
In 2012, Chan’s husband, who owned a marketing company, filed for bankruptcy. She has since acted intermittently, notably, in 2010’s Suspects In Love, 2014’s Never Dance Alone and 2018’s Watch Out, Boss.
In recent years, the 49-year-old has devoted her life to the pursuit of knowledge, completing her master’s in education and next, a PhD. She also produced an education-themed programme, After School, in 2019.
Did you know actor Joe Ma was once in the Hong Kong Police Force? More interestingly, he was a part of the elite VIP Protection Unit, and once served to protect Princess Diana when she was in Hong Kong!
Ma signed with TVB in 1993 and played a number of supporting roles for years before finally breaking through with 1999’s At The Threshold Of An Era.
Ma found a lot of success playing characters in uniform, notably as a pilot in his best known work yet, 2003 aviation drama Triumph In The Skies. Art imitated life when he played a cop in 2012’s Tiger Cubs.
Ma, now 51, is still actively acting. He fronted the 2018 hit medical drama Life On The Line. This year, he is set to play a lawyer in Buddies Do Big Things.
Ma and his wife Karen, a former university professor, have been married for 27 years. They have a 21-year-old son together.
Maggie Cheung Ho Yee
Maggie Cheung’s portrayal of revered actress Connie Chan Po Chu in 1997’s Old Time Buddy, a comedy series centred on real-life Hong Kong stars who dominated the screen in the 1960s and 1970s, catapulted her to stardom.
The former 1994 Miss Hong Kong finalist went on to carve an illustrious career with lead roles in popular productions Plain Love II (1999), War And Beauty (2004) and Forensic Heroes III (2011). After 2012’s The Last Steep Ascent, she left TVB.
The 51-year-old has since acted in 2014 Hong Kong web series To Be Or Not To Be, besides expanding to Mainland China series Legend of Lu Zhen and Sound Of The Desert.
Cheung’s lips are sealed when it comes to her romantic life.
Old Time Buddy not only gave Maggie Cheung Ho Yee her big break but Gallen Lo too, who began acting in the 1980s. Lo struck gold again with corporate drama At The Threshold Of An Era.
He holds the record for the most Best Actor wins at the prestigious TVB Anniversary Awards, earning three trophies (for Old Time Buddy, Secret Of The Heart and Golden Faith), tying with Roger Kwok and Wayne Lai.
At 57, Lo is showing no signs of slowing down, spending a lot of time acting in Mainland China series. Most recently, he can be seen on Chinese wuxia series Handsome Siblings.
Lo was married for 10 years to Clare Fong. They have a 21-year-old son together. He later remarried and have a six-year-old daughter with Chinese actress Sophie Su.
Ada Choi – along with Jessica Hester Hsuan, Flora Chan and Maggie Cheung Ho Yee – has often been regarded as one of TVB’s top ‘fadans’ of the 1990s (a term used to describe the most popular actresses of the day).
But success didn’t come easy. She has spoken publicly about her difficult past. Her mother was a gambling addict. She spent her childhood years constantly switching schools to avoid debtors.
The tide turned when she placed third at the Miss Hong Kong pageant in 1991, opening the doors to acting.
She stole our hearts towards the late 1990s with a series of high-profile dramas Healing Hands and At The Threshold Of An Era before taking over the starring role on Armed Reaction III and IV from Esther Kwan.
Finding success with these TVB dramas, she used the money she made to repay her mother’s debts for years.
The actress later ventured out of Hong Kong. In 2011, Choi enjoyed quite a bit of success when the Mainland China period drama Empresses In The Palace became a hit.
She married Max Zhang, the leading man of 2018’s Master Z: Ip Man Legacy, in 2008. The couple have three children together – ages nine, seven and a four-month-old.
The 46-year-old actress is dialling down on acting for the time being, with her last Chinese drama Woman In Love released in 2018.
Julian Cheung Chi Lam
Julian Cheung, who also goes by Chilam, was a singer first, marking his showbiz debut with his 1991 hit single Modern Love Story and has since churned out numerous albums.
Along the way, Cheung transitioned to acting and made it big in 1994 when he led the cast of The Legend Of The Condor Heroes. High-profile dramas after high-profile dramas followed, notably, Return Of The Cuckoo, Point Of No Return, Triumph In The Skies II.
Cheung also found success on the big screen, with a long list of films including Final Score, his 2017 Hollywood debut.
TVB fans have always loved watching the on-screen chemistry between Julian and frequent collaborator, actress Charmaine Sheh.
In real-life, Cheung, 48, has been married to actress Anita Yuen since 2001. They have a 13-year-old son together.
Jessica Hester Hsuan
Jessica Hester Hsuan, or affectionately known as Suen Huen, has a girl-next-door quality about her that makes her instantly likeable no matter the role. And boy is she a chameleon.
Hsuan has played a thief (Witness To A Prosecution), psychiatrist (Detective Investigation Files IV), lawyer (File Of Justice), customs officer (A Matter Of Customs) and popular 1960s-1970s actress Josephine Siao Fong Fong (Old Time Buddy) just to name a few.
The 50-year-old actress remains a force to be reckoned with today, drawing record-breaking ratings in her 2017 drama My Unfair Lady besides partnering with Marvel to play engineer Leslie Lam on the Hong Kong Disneyland attraction, Ant-Man and The Wasp: Nano Battle in 2019.
She remains single. Hsuan last discussed her love life in 2011 when she parted ways with South African veterinarian Ruan Bester.
‘Versatile’ is perhaps the best word to use when it comes to describing Louis Koo’s acting career.
Koo first made waves playing the leading man on The Condor Heroes 95, a follow-up to Julian Cheung’s The Legend Of The Condor Heroes. He later switched things up, injecting humour to his roles, notably, in A Step Into The Past, which was well-received.
At the same time, Koo was actively pursuing a career in films. He soon made the switch to the big screen and hasn’t looked back since.
Today, the 49-year-old has solidified himself as an actor with serious acting chops, having amassed multiple nominations at the Hong Kong Film Awards and Golden Horse Awards besides having his projects screened at international film festivals.
In 2018, after acting in 200 movies, Koo finally won his first Best Actor trophy at the Hong Kong Film Awards and Asian Film Awards for his performance as a cop searching for his missing teenage daughter in Paradox.
Relationship-wise – despite rumours that Koo was set to tie the knot with longtime friend Hsuan last year – he is still single.
Love or House: Hong Kong TVB drama earns thumbs up from mainland netizens for its realistic portrayal of the city’s housing crisis
Promotional material of Hong Kong Love Stories Photo: Sina Weibo
A Hong Kong drama on TVB has recently earned rave reviews on Chinese mainland social media for its true-to-life representation of the difficulties Hong Kong’s expensive housing market poses for single’s looking for love and married couples wanting to start a family.
The TV series Hong Kong Love Stories tells the story of a family of five – a mom and dad, their son and two younger daughters – who live in a home that is only 20 square meters in size. The drama reflects the real life of people living in Hong Kong by telling the various love stories of the family members under the pressure of high-priced housing.
Tired of her husband’s bad temper, the mother wants a divorce, but according to local laws the two need to live apart for a year to get divorced. The mother wants to apply for public housing, but the line is so backed up the wait is three years. Unable to afford her own place due to high rents, the housewife is forced to stay in an unhappy marriage.
The eldest son has been in a relationship with his girlfriend for seven years, but they still cannot afford to purchase a home in Hong Kong. In order to raise the needed money, they have been very frugal with their spending. For them, eating at a fast food restaurant is considered date night for them. When they finally scrape together some savings, down payments suddenly see a temporary increase, causing the two to have a big fight for the first time in many years. The housing has become a killer, murdering the romance between the two lovers.
The youngest daughter, a college student, lives in an upper bunk bed in a hallway. She often hides behind the curtain pretending to be a “closet princess.” In order to marry a rich guy, she pretends to be a rich by posting elegant pictures online.
The characters in Hong Kong Love Stories have hit the pain points of many people in Hong Kong. As the elder son says: “Some people are in a hurry to get a divorce for a house, and some people are anxious to get married for a house, making the marriage a gift for the house.”
Hong Kong is a financially developed city with many marvelous high-rise buildings. However, behind the gorgeous buildings, many families are trapped in small corners.
Over the past five years, housing prices in Hong Kong have risen by 38 percent, while people’s disposable income has only risen by 3 percent. Income growth is far behind the rise in housing prices so buying a home has become a daydream for many local residents.
The drama is deserving of its high review scores as its simple and realistic narrative shows the true face of reality. On Chinese media review platform Douban, Hong Kong Love Stories currently has an impressive 8.9/10.
The declining influence of its dramas has forced TVB to step out of its comfort zone to try something new. Hong Kong Love Stories is only 10 episodes, but the plot is tight and realistic. The drama’s success should encourage more filmmakers to shoot the real face of Hong Kong and raise the public’s awareness to the serious social problem.

Famous Couples Like Kevin Cheng And Grace Chan Who Found Love On Set
Kevin Cheng & Grace Chan
In 2015, Grace met Kevin on the set of Blue Veins. However, prior to that, she admitted to The Straits Times that she hadn’t watched any of his shows: “This is embarrassing, but I have never seen any of his dramas before and this is a guy who has done some really famous dramas.” Rumours of them dating made headlines not just because he’s an A-lister, but because of their 22-year age gap. The couple proved that age was just a number and got married in Bali this year.

Moses Chan & Aimee Chan
The two met on the set of Master of Play in 2010 and although rumours were rife that the pair were dating, it was only in 2011 that the couple confirmed the validity of the rumours.

Jacqueline Wong & Kenneth Ma
The couple met while filming Inspector Gourmet in 2016 and reportedly started dating after that. The couple seems to be happily dating, and earlier this year, Jacqueline even told a local news outlet of Kenneth’s romantic ways. She said, “I can’t say that he’s not romantic; instead, he’s a different kind of romantic. I won’t say what exactly, but he’s prepared surprises for me.” There are rumours of them tying the knot after Ruco Chan.

The couple met on the set of The Hippocratic Crush, where she played the role of one of his mentors. A year later, they were caught in a “car shaking” scandal, in which Tavia was spotted having her head in Him’s lap in his car, leading to speculations that the two were behaving intimately. They evaded dating questions for a while before holding a joint press conference to confirm that they were indeed a couple. They tied the knot in 2016.

7 serial couples who started dating in real life – Rambler / cinema
Hollywood stars often meet with their on-screen partners. The main reason for this is the busy work schedule of the actors who simply do not have the time and opportunity to meet somewhere outside the set. We decided to recall the top 7 most beautiful serial couples, whose feelings continued in real life.
A still from the TV series “Gossip Girl”
On-screen relations between the characters of Lively and Badgley were rightfully considered the brightest in the entire series.The characters in love regularly dispersed and converged again, obeying the will of the scriptwriters of the project. In real life, Blake and Penn’s romance developed much less dramatically. The actors met for four years, and the fans were sure that this romance would definitely culminate in a wedding, but life made its own adjustments to the relationship of the stars.
Unexpectedly for everyone and without raising too much noise, the actors announced their separation. Now both stars are happy in other unions and do not regret the decision to end the romantic relationship.Blake has been married to Ryan Reynolds for 8 years (the couple are raising three daughters), and Penn is married to actress Domino Kirk. In February 2020, it became known that the couple was expecting the birth of their first child.
A still from the TV series “House”
While the whole world was watching the tensions between Dr. House and Dr. Cuddy, many fans lost sight of the fact that they had a completely different (and more unexpected) romantic union in the person of Jennifer and Jesse. In January 2007, it became known that the actors got engaged after three years of relationship.Medical drama fans were jubilant as their on-screen favorites were getting ready to tie the knot. However, here, too, the plans of the actors changed at the last moment. Morrison broke off her engagement by canceling a lavish celebration at a rented medieval castle.
Ironically, when the personal relationship between the actors came to an end, the writers of the series decided to bring romance to their on-screen duo. One can only guess how hard and embarrassing it was for the actors to portray love in the story after a broken engagement and a painful breakup.
Still from the TV series “Show of the 70s”
In 1998, Kunis was approved for a role in the just-launched sitcom “Show of the 70s”. The actress’s screen partner is the young sex symbol Ashton Kutcher. In the frame, the artists fooled heartily and from series to series found themselves in funny and touching situations. The off-set relationship between Kunis and Kutcher was purely working: each had a rich personal life in its own way.
After the series was closed, each of them went their own way, and their new meeting took place in mid-2011.A few months later, it became known that a new beautiful couple had appeared on the Hollywood horizon – it took the lovers 13 years to sort out their feelings and realize that they should be together. Now Mila and Ashton are raising two children, are actively involved in charity work and, without a doubt, are considered one of the strongest star families.
Shot from the series “Game of Thrones”
In 2016 it became known that the stars of “Game of Thrones”, who on the screen portrayed sworn enemies (then, however, inflamed each other with mutual feelings), are found in real life.Moreover, Leslie and Harington hid their relationship from the public for 4 years.
Such a thorough conspiracy paid off – the actors managed to avoid “rinsing” their novel in the tabloid press, and the audience was not distracted from the tensions of their on-screen characters. In 2018, the lovers played a wedding in the Leslie clan’s ancestral castle. Later it turned out that the stars went through not only happy, but also hard times together. In 2019, Keith admitted that he went to the clinic a month before the series finale, due to the tension associated with the filming of the project.Leslie supported her husband during this difficult time, and both actors were able to overcome Harington’s nervous breakdown.
Still from the series “The Big Bang Theory”
The story of Cuoco and Galecki’s romantic relationship once again proves how an on-screen story can affect the real life of actors. The stars of the comedy series had a romance at the moment when the on-screen characters of the actors flared up with tender feelings for each other. Moreover, the relationship itself lasted as long as the writers gave the characters of the show – two years.
The parting of the actors went quietly, and they themselves did not stop assuring the fans that they parted on a high note and managed to maintain friendly relations. Now Cuoco is happily married to the billionaire’s heir Karl Cook, and Galecki learned the joy of fatherhood with his beloved Alaina Meyer – together they are raising a one-year-old son.
Still from the TV series Mad Men
Bledel’s on-screen romance with her partner in the Mad Men series, which began in real life, was not the first in her career as an actress.In her most successful project, Gilmore Girls, she dated for several years the on-screen bully boyfriend Milo Ventimiglia. When the plot paths of the characters diverged, the relationship between the actors themselves came to an end.
Following the success of Gilmore Girls and Sin City with Alexi, the star joined the cast of the retro drama Mad Men. The actress almost immediately began dating Vincent Kartheiser. After two years of relationship, the stars got married, and in 2015 they had a son.
Still from the series “True Blood”
For several seasons, fans of the vampire series were haunted by the love triangle of the heroes of Anna Paquin, Stephen Moyer and Alexander Skarsgard. While the fans wondered who the main character would stay with, the actress herself made a choice in favor of Moyer. The star lovers were not stopped either by the impressive age difference (13 years), or by Stephen’s past marriages.
In 2010, Paquin and Moyer were married after three years of relationship. Two years later, they had twins, a son, Charlie, and a daughter, Poppy.It is noteworthy that in the year of her wedding, Anna came out and declared that she was bisexual.

90,000 Novels on screen and in life: the stars who were in love on the set
“Office romance” is a common thing in Hollywood: it is difficult not to succumb to emotions when you are an incredibly attractive star and your lover is played by another incredibly attractive star. We remembered some of the brightest acting couples who were together not only on the screen, but also in real life.
Johnny Depp & Winona Ryder (Edward Scissorhands)
This celebrity couple’s love story began at the 1989 premiere of Big Balls of Fire. Winona says it was love at first sight. But the “official” acquaintance took place only a few months later, Johnny was then 26, Winone – 17, and this was her first serious relationship. After just a month, Depp proposed to her. According to the actress, the fact that Johnny had already been engaged twice before did not bother her.
The actors were engaged for three years, during which time they starred together in Tim Burton’s cult film Edward Scissorhands. But it all ended not with a wedding, but with parting, and both endured it very hard. Tim Burton, who not only frequently films Depp, but is also his good friend, says that after the breakup Johnny “stopped being himself”:
As if Winona took his soul, his love.
After breaking up, Ryder still speaks well of the ex-lover and says that he will always be close to her:
It was the first time with him: the first kiss, the first sex, he was my first boyfriend, my first fiancé.That is why he will always be in my heart.
Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Philip (Cruel Intentions)
The film “Cruel Intentions” became a cult film for a generation whose youth fell on the 90s. He fell in love with the audience, in part, thanks to the charisma of both main characters: Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Philip were young, good-looking and in love – and not only in the plot. During filming, Ryan and Reese were already a couple (they met in 1997, on Witherspoon’s 21st birthday).
The actors got married in 1999, the year of the premiere of the tape. Eight years later, they filed for divorce.
I was very, very young. But I learned a lot from this marriage, it was a great opportunity to find out what it really means to be partners, to be spouses – it turned out that this is not how I imagined it,
– Reese confesses, who declares that, even if she had such an opportunity, she would not change anything.
And, of course, the actress is grateful to this union for two wonderful children – daughter Ava and son Deacon.Ryan, of course, also adores children, although he does not spend as much time with them as he would like.
Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman (Days of Thunder, Far, Away, Eyes Wide Shut)
The actors met at the audition for Days of Thunder: Cruise was already well known, and Kidman had not yet played a particularly prominent role by that time. As the actor says, he was immediately fascinated by the girl – by the way, thanks in large part to this, she got the role.
Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman in Days of Thunder
The attraction was mutual, Nicole talks about the first meeting:
I entered the room and the first person I saw was him.He shook my hand and I felt an electric shock.
The romance developed rapidly: Cruz divorced his first wife, actress Mimi Rogers, and proposed to Nicole. Over the years of marriage, they adopted two children, the attempt to have their own ended in failure: Kidman had an ectopic pregnancy.
The actors played together in three tapes. The last was “Eyes Wide Shut”, during the filming of which a crisis broke out in the couple’s relationship.In 2001, Tom and Nicole filed for divorce, just short of their tenth wedding anniversary. Cruise’s fascination with Scientology is said to have played a role in the breakup.
I was madly in love, I would have followed him to the ends of the earth … Our life together was perfect. It took me a long time to recover from the breakup,
– Kidman admitted in an interview.
Now the actress, who is happily married to Keith Urban, wonders how she could have married Tom and lived with him for so many years.
Tom Cruise and Penelope Cruz (Vanilla Sky)
When Tom started filming Vanilla Sky, he was still married to Nicole Kidman. But Penelope Cruz assures that there was no romance between her and her partner on the set, their relationship began only after Cruz broke up with his wife.
I never fell in love on set. If this happened, then after filming. Friendship after a few months could turn into something more.It is always a surprise, a mystery, such things cannot be planned,
– Penelope says.
The actors were together for three years, and yet it did not come to an engagement. The reason why they broke up, in their environment was formulated as follows: the relationship has outlived its usefulness. A spokesman for Penelope denied rumors that Cruise’s affair was also ruined by his relationship with Scientologists.
Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bridget Nielsen (Red Sonja)
Danish model Gitta Nielsen (that’s actually Bridget’s name) never acted in films until she auditioned for the lead role in the fantasy Red Sonja.The main male role was played by Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bridget Nielsen in the movie “Red Sonja”
I quickly learned that off-screen superstar Arnold is very charming, kind, confident and easy-going. And his body always seemed incredible. I can’t say that it was the looks that attracted me, but he looked great.
The actress says that “chemistry” developed between her and Arnold on the set, and as a result, a whirlwind romance began.21-year-old Nielsen, by the way, has a husband and a small child in Copenhagen. Bridget admits that she felt a deep sense of guilt despite the fact that her marriage has long been bursting at the seams. During the filming of “Red Sonja” Schwarzenegger was already engaged to Maria Shriver, but Nielsen insists that she “did not know that they were serious.”
Sylvester Stallone and Bridget Nielsen (Rocky 4, Cobra)
When the affair with Schwarzenegger ended, Bridget decided to make acquaintance with another star – Sylvester Stallone, whom the actress calls the sexiest man she has ever seen.Upon learning that Stallone had arrived in New York, Nielsen sent him a note at the hotel with an offer to get acquainted with her photograph. The actor became interested, and soon they began to meet.
Just a couple of weeks later, he offered me a role in Rocky 4 – and marry him. And I haven’t even been divorced yet. There were about 300 guests at our wedding, of whom I knew five people. Sylvester and I entered into a marriage contract, which implies that we both have no right to talk about our marriage.All I can say is that one morning in 1987 I packed my things and jewelry and left his villa for good,
– says Nielsen.
They lived only 19 months as husband and wife. During this time, Bridget and Sylvester starred together in two films – “Rocky 4” and “Cobra”. The actress says that after her break with Stallone, the doors of many film studios were closed to her, she had to return to Europe, where she was able to pursue a career.
Ashton Kutcher and Brittany Murphy (The Newlyweds)
Ashton Kutcher and Brittany Murphy began dating on the set of the comedy “Just Married”.As the actor said, at first they were just friends and spent a lot of time together. When the romance began, the lovers preferred to keep it a secret, although the press, of course, still found out about everything.
The relationship was not long: celebrities met for only about seven months. The reason for the separation is not exactly known, especially since both Brittany and Ashton did not share details with reporters after the break. Surrounded by stars, they confirm that they parted peacefully and never said bad things about each other.
Let us remind you that in 2009 Murphy passed away. According to Kutcher, at that time they had not communicated for a long time.
It’s hard for me to put it all in my head, I just remember what it was like. You know, when there is a party and everyone is standing, and then they turn on the music, and someone has to come out to dance first. This is how Brittany was – the person who always starts dancing first,
– Ashton said in an interview.
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt (“Mr. and Mrs. Smith”)
The history of the relationship of this stellar couple is known in detail to almost everyone, so we will not go into details again.Let’s just remind that Brad and Angelina were officially released as a couple in 2005, shortly after the premiere of “Mr. and Mrs. Smith”. The following year, the actress became pregnant.
By the time of the wedding, which took place in 2014, the couple already had six children – three of their own and three adopted. After two years of family life, the actors announced that they were getting divorced, – Jolie was the initiator.
As for “Mr. and Mrs. Smith”, the couple did not hide the fact that it was on the set of this picture that “a spark ran”.Then Brad was still married to Jennifer Aniston.
Few children can boast of having seen a movie on the set of which their parents fell in love with each other,
– Jolie shared in an interview.
For Angelina, this was far from the first romance that began on the set. Both of her previous husbands – Johnny Lee Miller and Billy Bob Thornton – she also met on the set. Also in the press there were rumors about the relationship of the actress with her partner in the movie “False Fire” Jenny Shimizu.
It is interesting that many years later, Pitt and Jolie again starred together in the film “Cote d’Azur”, only this time they played a married couple on the verge of breaking up. The plot of the film was partly embodied in reality: soon after the release of the tape, on the set of which Angelina and Brad already had difficulty communicating, the stars decided to leave. So as the romance of the actors began – on the set – it ended.
Cameron Diaz and Matt Dillon (“Everybody’s Crazy About Mary”)
Cameron Diaz and Matt Dillon have been together for three years while filming the 1998 comedy Everybody’s Crazy About Mary.The couple broke up shortly after the film’s premiere.
I was in love, Cameron was my muse. I have never had such deep feelings before,
– Dillon is sure.
Cameron Diaz and Matt Dillon in Everybody’s Crazy About Mary
According to him, the union broke up because Diaz was not ready for family life:
You fall in love, and then this passion turns into the desire to have children. I felt this urge.
Recall that Cameron got married almost 20 years after the affair with Matt Dillon, the musician Benji Madden became the actress’s choice.Dillon, 54, never married and has no children.
Ryan Gosling & Rachel McAdams (The Notebook)
The actors met in 2003 on the set of the melodrama “The Diary of Memory” and, they say, at first they did not like each other. The director of the film, Nick Cassavetes, himself told about this. According to him, it got to the point that Gosling suggested that he change McAdams for another actress, because the couple did not pass a day without a quarrel on the set.
But, playing lovers, Rachel and Ryan were so imbued that more than a tense relationship between them suddenly spilled over into a whirlwind romance.It began, apparently, after the end of filming. In 2005, at the MTV VMA ceremony, the actors, having received the award for the best kiss, demonstrated this kiss from the stage, so no one needed much proof that they were together.
In an interview that Gosling gave after the breakup, he said:
“Diary of Memory” introduced me to my great love. But people were wrong to think that Rachel and I were our characters. Our love story with her was much more romantic than that of our heroes.
What ruined the attractive couple’s relationship? Apparently, both are passionate about their careers. In another interview, Ryan admitted:
Showbiz is a bad guy. When both work in this area, show business becomes too much, it takes everything.
By the way, both before and after McAdams, Gosling had a relationship with actresses: in the early 2000s he met Sandra Bullock for a couple of years, whom he met on the set of the film “Murder Countdown”, and now he is raising two daughters with Eva Mendes – once his partner in The Place Beyond the Pines.
Lauren Bacall & Humphrey Bogart (“To Have Or Not To Have”)
19-year-old fashion model Lauren Bacall was invited to star in the 1944 film “To Have Or Not To Have”, and he not only became the first in the career of the future star, but also played a major role in her life. The heroine’s beloved Bacall was played by Humphrey Bogart, who was 26 years older than his partner on the set. The actor was then married for the third time, and he and Lauren kept their romance secret.
The relationship began spontaneously, the actress talked about it in her memoirs:
One evening he came to my trailer to say good night.I stood by the mirror and combed my hair. Suddenly he leaned over to me and kissed me, it was an impulsive act, and he himself was a little confused. Then he took a battered box of matches from his pocket and asked me to write my phone number on it. I did it, I don’t know why, it just seemed to me part of the game that began between us.
In February 1945, Bogart divorced his wife and married Bacall a few months later. As the actress wrote, the age difference always worried Bogart, while Lauren herself considered a relationship with a man so much older than her, “the best thing that happened to her.”
In addition to “To Have or Not to Have,” they starred together in three more films. They had two sons. And in 1957, Bogart died of cancer at the age of 57. After the death of her husband, Bacall was engaged to Frank Sinatra for a while, then married actor Jason Robards.

Or you watch a very hot spicy sex scene and can’t imagine how it was played by people who are not physically attracted to each other. But, in fact, the actors are also people and our feelings and desires are not alien to them, so some celebrity couples could not resist the temptation and took their feelings off the set.
Today we will discuss 13 happy love stories made possible by cinema. The actors involved in these projects were pierced by Cupid’s arrows, and a fictional love story left the screen to become an unforgettable and beautiful reality.
1. Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz
Their old acquaintance could never have crossed the line of friendship, if not for the failed film “Dream House”. Hero Craig had to realize his mental illness and release his long-dead wife and children into another world.But Daniel could not let go of Rachel in real life, and the actress was unable to resist the charisma of the famous Englishman. It was on the set of this film that the actors realized that they should be together and broke off their previous relationship. But, as time has shown, it was worth it, because Daniel and Rachel have been happy together for 10 years, 9 years ago they were married, and two years ago they had a beautiful girl.
2. Kit Harington and Rose Leslie
For two and a half seasons of Game of Thrones, viewers were interested in the question: who will win the heart of the impregnable Jon Snow? This lucky woman turned out to be the red-haired wild Ygritte.Fans of the series almost immediately began to actively discuss that the passion of the actors should go beyond the set. Indeed, the couple increasingly began to appear in public hand in hand, and in 2016 they officially announced that they had been together since 2012. Their relationship developed quite rapidly, a year later they announced their engagement, and in 2018 the couple played a gorgeous wedding in the ancestral castle of the Leslie clan in Scotland.
3. Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson

The star couple have been together for 35 years, they have two adult sons. Tom gave his wife all kinds of support during the fight against breast cancer, and he himself admitted that he was sick with diabetes. Moreover, this year the married couple suffered from the coronavirus. The couple manages to walk hand in hand both in sorrow and in joy.

Hot Spanish films sometimes ignite the actors so much that it is impossible to imagine life as it was before.The celebrity couple Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz, whose romance began thanks to the sensational film “Vicky Cristina Barcelona”, was no exception.

“It turned out that Jon Snow did know a thing or two,” fans of the famous series love to joke when they learn that after a short love story that ended in season 3, the actors began dating. They hid their relationship from the public for a long time. At the moment, Keith and Rose are already married, and this year they have a wonderful son.
Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev, The Vampire Diaries
Nina Dobrev, who plays the main character of the saga, Elena, could not resist both Damon in the series and Ian in real life. The actors met for 3 years, but eventually broke up due to Nina’s unwillingness to enter into an official marriage.
Cole Sprouse and Lili Reinhart, Riverdale
We had the good fortune to watch our beloved couple Betty Cooper and Jughead Jones both on the show and in real life.The actors dated for 3 years, but last year turned out to be sad for the couple, and, to the chagrin of fans, they broke off relations. There are still many rumors about the reason for their separation.

Clarke and Bellamy were not a couple in the classical sense – for all 7 seasons of the series, the writers kept fluctuations between them from hatred to friendship, although the tension between them and fervent looks were obvious to everyone.
