I love celebrity trivia and one of my favorite kinds is finding out about celeb couples I never knew about or just completely forgot about. This usually involves couples from the ’90s or early 2000’s because stars date a lot of people sometimes and I just can’t keep up with them all. It’s always fun to look at two random celebs and think, “OMG they actually dated?!”
Most of these surprising couples met on movie sets because that makes sense – they worked together (REALLY closely together in most cases), made out for scenes and then fell for each other. I already showed you TV co-stars who dated, but there are also movie co-stars who dated and they might be even more surprising. Check out these 13 movie co-stars who dated that you probably forgot about:
Channing Tatum and Amanda Bynes from She's The ManThere were a lot of rumors that Channing Tatum and Amanda Bynes dated after starring together in one of the best movies ever, She's The Man, but they were never confirmed and were often denied. I guess we'll never know the real story but if they did, awww.
Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck from GigliThis might be one of the weirdest and most infamous couples ever that you'll probably never forget just because everyone was collectively like, WTF is going on? Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck met on the set of maybe the worst movie of all time, Gigli. These two are the reason we give celebrity couples nicknames (Bennifer). They were engaged for a little while, but broke that off and only dated for about two years. Source: Wenn.com
Chris Evans and Jessica Biel from CellularBefore Jessica Biel was dating Justin Timberlake, she was in a relationship with her co-star Chris Evans. I never knew this happened (or I just forgot), but these two look really cute together! After meeting on the set of Cellular, they dated for two years and even did another movie together, London.
Meagan Good and Joseph Gordon-Levitt from BrickI never ever knew about this couple until I wrote this post and honestly, it still surprises me. I just can't see these two together, although they do look really cute in this photo. They started dating after meeting on the set of indie movie Brick but were only together for a few months before calling it quits.
Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams from The NotebookCan we just talk about this for a second? I obviously never forgot that Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams dated because they were only one of the best celebrity couples of all time and I still ship them. When I heard the rumors that Ryan and Eva Mendes broke up and he turned to Rachel for help, my heart exploded and I almost screamed in my office. They seriously need to get back together. It should come as no surprise to anyone that they met on the set of The Notebook, one of the most romantic movies ever. Who couldn't fall in love after filming scenes like those with these two?

Courteney Cox and David Arquette from ScreamUnless you haven't read any celebrity news in a few years, you probably haven't forgotten that Courteney Cox and David Arquette met on the set of Scream, dated, got married, had what seemed like a good relationship and then recently got divorced because David is dealing with some issues. I still hold out hope that they'll reconcile for good. Source: Nikki Nelson/Wenn.com
Drew Barrymore and Luke Wilson from Home FriesI never knew that Drew Barrymore and Luke Wilson dated, but I am pleasantly surprised about it. I love these two! They're both adorable and fun and quirky. They only dated for three years but I sort of wish they were still together. Source: Wenn.com
Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes from Romeo & JulietUgh. I still hold a nonsensical grudge against Claire Danes for dating Leonardo DiCaprio. No, I'm not ashamed to admit that. They got together during the height of my obsession with Leo after meeting on the set of Romeo & Juliet. I was SO excited to see the movie and once I found out they were actually dating in real life, I felt incredibly betrayed. I supported them and their movie. How could they stab me in the back like this? That's why Claire Danes was punished with this awful outfit.
Melissa Joan Hart and Adrien Grenier from Drive Me CrazyGuys, remember that time a movie was named after a Britney Spears song? Me too. That movie also sparked the rumored relationship of Melissa Joan Hart and Adrien Grenier. This is not the best picture of them and I hope their relationship was better than this.
Ryan Gosling and Sandra Bullock from Murder By NumbersI love Ryan Gosling and Sandra Bullock separately, but honestly, I cannot see them together at all. Like not even a little bit. It still blows my mind that they dated after meeting on Murder By Numbers, even though I've known for years. They both only have great things to say about each other because they are both flawless.

Sarah Michelle Gellar and Freddie Prinze Jr. from I Know What You Did Last SummerYou should probably know that Sarah Michelle Gellar and Freddie Prinze Jr. started dating after I Know What You Did Last Summer because they got married afterwards and they're still married now. They're basically the perfect '90s couple ever and they're adorable. Source: Nikki Nelson / WENN
Seann William Scott and January Jones from American WeddingThe relationship didn't last very long, but in 2003, Seann William Scott and January Jones dated for a little while after meeting on the set of American Wedding. Maybe they bonded over how terrible the movie was?
Sandra Bullock and Matthew McConaughey from A Time To KillJudging from her dating past, Sandra Bullock obviously doesn't really have a specific type. They dated after co-starring in A Time To Kill and they probably had a really fun relationship based on laughs and jokes. I don't know, just guessing. The cutest thing is that they're still friends - Sandra is even close with Matthew's wife Camilla (they go on playdates with their kids together!). Is anyone in this world better than Sandra Bullock? No. The answer is no.
Which of these did you know about already? Which couple surprised you the most? Which couple did I forget about? Tell me in the comments.
