Every time you watch a movie, does it leave you in awe of how the actors play their parts and move on? How they resist those heart-piercing glances, the adoring looks, and the cinematic kisses in the rain? We are happy to report that not all actors are immune to the on-screen charm on display. Here is our list of eight couples who epitomise OTP—One True Pairing.

Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher


The duo originally met on the set of ‘That ‘70s Show’ and were even each other’s first kiss (talk about a fairytale), but they finally felt the sparks ten years later at an award show, got married two years later, and are now parents to two adorable children.

Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds


Hands down Hollywood’s favourite couple, known for their hilarious tweets, Lively and Reynolds first met on the sets of 'Green Lantern'. Although the movie didn’t do well, their chemistry was undeniable. Unfortunately, they were both in relationships at the time, but they soon found their way back to each other, with the couple tying the knot in 2012.

Eva Mendez and Ryan Gosling


He is more than Kenough for her. Ryan Gosling was the one who suggested his friend Eva Mendez would be perfect for the role of Romina Gutierrez in 'The Place Beyond the Pine'. The two fell in love on set, and Gosling once even said that while he was acting to be in love with Eva, with whose character he shared a child, he could not help but wish it was true in real life. It looks like he manifested it, since the couple now have two children together.

Rose Leslie and Kit Harrington


While their real-life characters may not have had a happy ending, Rose Leslie and Kit Harrington sure did. The duo met as Ygritte and Jon Snow on the show ‘Game of Thrones’ in 2012 and made their relationship public at the Olivier Awards in 2016. Their infamous ‘severed head in the fridge prank’ showed the world how cute they are together.


Leighton Meester and Adam Brody


Who knew the OC’s sweet nerd and the upper east side's Queen B would hit it off? But that’s exactly what happened with this couple. The two met while filming 'The Oranges' and instantly hit it off, and they tied the knot in secret a year later. Leighton once said she had a crush on Brody even before they filmed together, and it looks like Blair got Chuck and Leighton got Adam.


Ginnifer Goodwin and Josh Dallas


Fairytales do exist, and this couple's story proves it. Goodwin and Dallas met while filming ‘Once Upon a Time, where Goodwin played the role of Snow White and Dallas played Pince Charming. Their romance played out exactly like we’ve heard a countless times growing up, with the duo now living happily ever after with their two sons.

Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos


This dynamic duo, who never shy away from proclaiming their love for each other in real life or on social media, first met in 1995 at a screen test for ‘All My Children', after which they eloped in 1996. Clearly, their chemistry was undeniable and still is nearly 30 years later.

Lauren Morelli and Samira Wiley


Lauren Morelli was the lead writer for a few episodes of ‘Orange is the New Black', which meant she frequently met the show's actors, one of them being Samira Wiley. Although Morelli was married at that point, post-divorce, the two got married in 2017.
