I fell in love with these characters and am fully obsessed with their romance stories. Their on-camera chemistry is so powerful that I cannot believe these actors are not together in real life. 


I compiled this list of celebrities because I am a Rom-Com fan girl and could never get tired of watching the movies where these pairs play love interests. These pairings are created thorough analysis of friendship, chemistry, couple development and storyline. Below is a list of couples who I wish were together in real life because I am so enveloped in their characters that there is no one else I can see them with.


Warning: This article may contain some spoiler alerts if you have not seen any of the films that these celebrities have starred in together.

Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling

“La La Land” and “Crazy, Stupid, Love”


They are the ultimate couple. Period. Their friendship is everything to me and they have the best on-screen chemistry by far. Not only can I watch their movies and interviews but I can listen to them sing together on the “La La Land” soundtrack. 


In “Crazy, Stupid, Love” when Jacob Palmer (Ryan Gosling) and Hannah Weaver (Emma Stone) do “the move” from Dirty Dancing and Jacob changes for the better because he falls in love with Hannah, I melt a little inside. The way their characters interact is just one of the many reasons this celebrity pairing is meant to be.

Kate Hudson and Matthew McConauhey

“How To Lose a Guy in 10 Days”


The pairing also starred in “Fool’s Gold,” but “How To Lose a Guy in 10 Days” has always been the go to movie for me. This movie is so funny and their characters are so perfect together that I cannot fathom how they are not married in real life. I call “bullspit.”


Again, another couple that has blessed me with not only their movies and interviews but with their voices when they sing “You’re So Vain” by Carly Simone.

Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler

“The Wedding Singer,” “Blended” and “50 First Dates”


This dynamic duo has been in so many great movies together. They are a comedic match made in heaven. I love Adam Sandler movies because he always casts his friends, which makes the movies so personable. 


Sandler and Barrymore are great friends off-screen, which makes them that much more of a stellar couple. 

Julia Roberts and Hugh Grant

“Notting Hill”


A celebrity falls in love with a non-celebrity. This is everyone's dream come true.


This storyline and the acting is what makes me need this couple to actually be together. When Anna Scott (Julia Roberts) stands in front of William Thacker (Hugh Grant) and says her famous line, “I’m also just a girl, standing in front of a boy, asking him to love her,” my heart screams. Fame or no fame, their love has still remained.


My favorite scene in the movie is when they sneak into a private living area and “When You Say Nothing At All” by Ronan Keating begins to play. We see them fall in love and just enjoy life together without paparazzi following their every step.

Freddie Prinze Jr. and Rachael Leigh Cook

“She’s All That”

I watched this movie religiously in high school. Young Freddie Prince and Paul Walker. Yes, please. 


Zach Stiler (Freddie Prinze Jr.) is the popular guy. He participates in a bet to get Laney Boggs (Racheal Leigh Cook) to be the school’s prom queen. This movie, although it can be predictable at points, is surprising, heartwarming and a true coming of age film. 


You truly get to see this couple develop, grow and learn about one another. They are not as different from each other as they thought. I love this movie because it portrays that the right person will help build your confidence, encourage you and accept you for who you are. 

Honorable Mention:    Max Greenfield and Hannah Simone

“New Girl”


Schmidt and Cece will always be together and no one can tell me otherwise. 


“I’m gonna marry you girl,” is what Schmidt says to Cece when he first meets her and fans learn later that what he said came true. 


This relationship is everything and more as you can see Schmidt will do anything for Cece to make her happy. I cry everytime I watch “Landing Gear,” the episode where Schmidt and Cece get married. Their love for each other is so passionate, strong and powerful. Love truly conquers all for this couple. 

Which couple do you wish were together in real life?
