Co-stars shacking up on set is a tale as old as time. Whether they’re extra-marital trysts (see: Spencer and Katharine or Angie and Brad), real-deal life-long romance (Goldie and Kurt, Kevin and Kyra) or sexy little on-set flings (well, everyone in Hollywood really), film stars have been blurring the lines between fact and fiction for decades. But what about the couples that got away? Those lightning-in-a-bottle pairings that came together onscreen, but could have, hell, should have come together in real life as well? From the frustrating fourteen-year platonic friendship between Titanic twosome Kate Winslet and Leo DiCaprio to the undeniable sexual spark between friends without benefits Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis, these are the on-screen pairings that just make us want to yell “Oh come on, just make out already!”
Leonardo DiCaprio & Kate Winslet
Since 1998’s Titanic, Kate and Leo have been making us swoon with their uber believable on-screen love connections. The Oscar-worthy couple have paired up twice on the silver screen, first as—duh—Jack and Rose in James Cameron’s epic romance, then in Sam Mendes’s ’09 drama Revolutionary Road, for which Winslet won the Golden Globe for Best Actress and gushed to her co-star and long-time best friend during her acceptance speech: “Leo, I’m so happy I can stand here and tell you how much I love for and how much I’ve loved you for thirteen years.” Ha, right—that sounds like “just friends” to us. Leo even gave Kate a friendship ring as a token of his affection on the set of the film! The two both have significant others at the moment, with Kate rebounding from her divorce from director hubby Mendes with boyfriend Ned Rocknroll and Leo with his latest model-girlfriend (we all know those don’t last long with Leo!), but we’re still holding out that life will start imitating art for this talented twosome!
