On-screen Couples Who Dated Off-screen

Spending a lot of time together with your co-stars usually leads to the development of relationships. Some work out well and others don’t end well. Nonetheless, it’s always fun and exciting to find out that your favorite on-screen couples share a good relationship in real life. Below are some on-screen relationships that may or may not have ended in marriage.

Jackie and Kelso

In 1998, Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis played Jackie and Kelso in the comedy series That 70’s Show. When their characters dated on the show, the two weren’t in a relationship in real life yet. It was only in 2012, six years after the show ended when they started dating. The couple is now happily married and has two children.

Lucas and Brooke

One Tree Hill co-stars Chad Michael Murray and Sophia Bush met at the set of the show but were soon found to be dating.
