It’s official! With “True Blood” couple Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer tying the knot this past weekend, we can now enjoy watching married sex every Sunday night on TB. How exciting!
I love when hot costars hook up on set. It just makes the story more addicting to watch. When a relationship onscreen oozes so much chemistry that I forget I’m watching a movie because I’m so wrapped up in the characters – then I WANT them to take their work home! Why you ask? I don’t know, because I’m a lame-ass who lives vicariously through romantic movie relationships. I mean seriously, who couldn’t use a little more romance in their life? Am I right ladies? …Ladies?
So with news of the “True Blood” wedding, I got to thinking about other costars that continued their relaysh when the cameras stopped rolling. I’ve got a handful of favorites myself and in some cases, unfortunately, they didn’t go the distance. BUUUT, I felt they were worth mentioning simply because when they were ON, they were SO dreamy togethah!
Hot costar hookups
Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson – Of course I’d put these two at the top of my list. I mean, they play EDWARD & BELLA! I think this is one of the greatest fictional love stories of all time. And trust me, I haven’t read nearly enough books to make that claim. But I'm makin' it! It’s all about shy and mysterious Robsten. I hope "Twilight" isn't the last onscreen pairing that we see of these too. I'd love to see them play other characters (always in love, natch!).
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie – Despite my Team Aniston stance when “Mr. & Mrs. Smith” came out, I couldn’t deny the crazy chemistry that these two had onscreen. It was electric! It was only a matter of time before it became official in the form of adopting a nation of babies together.
Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams – If you saw “The Notebook”, you know how much fiery chemistry Gosling and McAdams had together. I LOVED when they reenacted that famous running kissing scene from the movie when they won “Best Kiss” at the MTV Movie Awards! (If you've never seen to, MUST WATCH!) Unfortunately, the clock ran out for these two. Post split, Gosling said: (and I paraphrase) “Rachel will be one of my great loves. What we had was more romantic than anything in The Notebook.” Oh please, I hope they find each other again someday!!!!
Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillipe – This is another shame. These two had such sweet, sweet chemistry in “Cruel Intentions” that to this day; it’s one of my all-time fave movies. I wish these two could’ve lasted. P.S. I think Ryan is still in love with Reece and I’m pulling for a reunion someday!
Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer – Because they seem so genuinely in love and their chemistry oozes onto the silver screen, they’re def a top five costar hookup in my book.
Elvis Presley and Ann Margaret -- These two caused quite the stir back in the mid '60s when they filmed “Viva Las Vegas” together. Mr. Presley had met his match in Ms. Margaret who was dubbed the "female Elvis". Check out this quick vid of them in "Viva Las Vegas" here. It's the way they looked at each other. Whew!
Now, what about costars that SHOULD’VE hooked up? This is my list of costars that I so wanted to be real life lovahs.
Hollywood hookups that should’ve been…
Tori Spelling and Brian Austin Green – I loved, loved, loved Donna and David on “Beverly Hills 90210”. I wanted them to be together in real life because I felt like if Donna and David couldn’t have sex on TV, at least they could off camera.
Tiffani Amber Theissen and Mark Paul Gooselaar – Who didn’t want Kelly Kapowski and Zack Morris to be high school sweethearts forever?
Demi Moore and Rob Lowe – I came across this ‘80s movie a few years ago called “About Last Night” and lemme tell ya, Demi and Rob had IT. They had serious sexual chemistry and their roller coaster love story took you right along with them. I read that they did date off camera for a while, so that’s good to know!
Jennifer Aniston and Gerard Butler – Although I thought their movie “Bounty Hunter” was a clunker, they def had sexy chemistry. I was really pulling for an off camera romance between these two. They just look great together.
Well that’s all I can think of. I probably missed a couple glaringly obvious and famous costar hookups. Are there any big Hollywood costar hookups that you loved? Please share in the comments section!
