19 Celebrity Couples Who You Might Not Know Met On Set
It’s not unusual to meet people at work, so when celebrities fall for other celebrities on set, it’s basically just like a much better paid version of Bill and Sally who met over the copier in the office.
Here are 19 celeb couples who met during the day job:
1. Adam Brody and Leighton Meester
This pair of teen show stars met on The Oranges in 2011, were married in 2014 and welcomed their first child in 2015.
2. Brad Pitt and Gwyneth Paltrow
Matching haircuts does not a good marriage make. After meeting on the set of Se7en, Brad and Gwyneth dated and even got engaged before breaking up in 1997 because Gwyneth didn’t feel ready.
3. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie
In a drama that your mum can probably recount in immense detail, this celebrity power couple met while filming Mr and Mrs Smith in 2004 – but Brad was already married to Jennifer Anniston. It only took a year for Brad to finalise his divorce, and then he adopted Angelina’s children. They waited a decade until 2014 to get married, but sadly divorced in 2016.
4. Jennifer Anniston and Vince Vaughn
Inspired by her ex-husbands set romance, Jen began dating Vince while they filmed The Break-Up in 2005, and then they actually did break up later in 2006.

6. Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez

7. Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner
