Celebrity Hookups & Real-Life Dating

Updated on August 18, 2021

Reese met Ex Ryan Filming Cruel Intentions

Celebrities claim acting is just acting. They can do an emotional role or tell someone they love them on screen and it is all part of the job. They claim it is not as romantic as it looks because they are surrounded by a crew member eating a jelly donut, the sound guy, putting on layers of make-up, lighting…

But is it all fantasy, or do real feelings grow on the set?

Imagine a romantic role where you spend days on the set staring into each others eyes, kissing, half naked perfectly tanned glistening bodies toned from hours in the gym …

Ok I digress. But isn’t it possible that it does change their off-screen relationships?

So it seems celebrities are human like us. They meet people at work, and sometimes form relationships after spending hours a day together. They face intense scenes or situations, which may bond them together.

Co-stars are in the same entertainment field so they understand the pressures and scrutiny of being a movie star. It is no wonder that love may sometimes bloom on the movie set.
