These On Screen Couples Fell in Love Off-Screen

by Alexandra

Love. It's a four letter word with a whole lot of meaning behind it. According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, love is defined as a strong affection for another arising out of kinship or personal ties. Well, there's no doubt about it that these on-screen couples who fell in love behind the scenes had a unique kind of personal tie. What better way to fall in love with someone than seeing what they would be like in a relationship before you're even really in one with them! Perhaps they saw how their future partner would treat them, nurture them, and provide for them and couldn't bare themselves to live without that kind of relationship in their lives. The following Hollywood couples fell in love while working on projects as on-screen couples. And we think its pretty dang adorable.

They began their relationship on the set of "The Last Song". Throughout the years, they have maintained an on-again/off-again relationship for a number of years. After an engagement, followed by a sudden break-up, the couple is back on and more in love than other. Liam went on the Ellen Degeneres Show and announced that the wedding planning was in full swing.

Dominic Cooper and Amanda Seyfried from "Mamma Mia!"

While in the movie, Amanda and Dominic are a couple with a plethora of relationship problems, their real-life relationship seems to be much different. The film ends with the couple postponing their marriage and making the decision to travel the world as a team. The couple debuted as an item shortly after the movie was released and came out to the world as "officially dating". Sadly, their relationship came to an end in 2010 and their lives took them in different directions.

Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder from "The Vampire Diaries"

Now, breakups are never easy. But could you imagine having to work with your ex on a daily basis? No thank you. Unfortunately, that is exactly the situation Nina and Ian found themselves in. They both had roles as two of the main characters on the show "The Vampire Diaries" and became romantically involved a few seasons into the show. They spent 3 years together and then separated. However, they continued to work on the show together for 2 years post-breakup.
