Even in Hollywood, the best place to meet your future partner is at work.
Just like many of us normal folks, celebrities often find their significant other at work. The only real difference is, their work takes place on a movie set surrounded by cameras, while we usually have to wait till the Christmas party to make a move. Still love has blossomed for many famous co-stars even when the cameras have stopped rolling. Here’s some of our favorite Hollywood couples who have managed to turn an on-set meeting into lasting love.

Proof that love can sometimes take a while to blossom, Mila and Ashton’s first meeting was on the set of ‘That 70’s Show’ in 1998 when the actress was just 15. Over the years the pair became good friends and stayed close even after the series ended in 2006. Both would end up in high profile relationships, with Kutcher marrying Demi Moore and Kunis dating Macaulay Culkin. But when they each found themselves single in 2012, their friendship turned into something more. In February it was announced that the couple were engaged and in May Kunis revealed they were expecting their first child together.
The Amazing Spider-Man co-stars became a real life couple
Now one of Hollywood’s hottest young couples, Andrew and Emma met on the set of The Amazing Spider-Man in 2011. Emma certainly made a fast impression on Andrew when she auditioned for the role of Gwen Stacey. The actor said in 2012, “It was like I woke up when she came in. She was the last person to screen-test [for The Amazing Spider-Man], and I was so bored of it by then…And then she came in, and it was like diving into whitewater rapids and having no desire to hang on to the side.” That sounds pretty intense. The couple have now been together for two years and rumour has it wedding bells might be in their future after they were reportedly seen ring shopping together recently.
