💕why fans wish movie couples shared real-life love off screen💕
this image shows leonardo dicaprio and kate winslet in a scene from “titanic.” the film will be returning to theaters for one week. ever since kate and leo played star-crossed lovers in “titanic,” fans of the movie have pined for the two to get together in real life. maybe the a-listers are partly to blame, for being such persuasive actors. whatever the case, despite 20 years of evidence – including her habit of marrying quirky brits and his love of 20-something models – hope never dies.
it certainly doesn’t help when kate says things like, “leo, i’m so happy i can stand here and tell you how much i love you and how much i’ve loved you for 13 years,” during a golden globes acceptance speech. still, the two insist they’re simply great friends. in fact, leo walked kate down the aisle during her most recent marriage, to ned rocknroll.
here’s a look back at some of the actors whom people couldn’t help rooting for, whether or not they were destined to be together.
• ginger rogers and fred astaire
rogers and astaire first wowed audiences in “flying down to rio” in 1933; their captivating chemistry was so palpable when they danced together, they stole the show from the movie’s leads. • humphrey bogart and lauren bacall
bogart’s impressive chemistry with ingrid bergman in “casablanca” was nothing compared with the heat he generated with lauren bacall when they first starred together in “to have and have not” in 1944.
• rachel mcadams and ryan gosling
the two actors ended up dating after the movie 'the notebook' came out, which brought fans immense joy. it didn’t last, though. • taraji p. henson and terrence howard
long before they played exes on the hit show “empire,” henson and howard co-starred in 2005’s “hustle & flow.”
• kristen stewart and robert pattinson
there’s nothing more romantic than bella and edward.. stewart and pattinson, ended up dating, but broke up.
• jennifer lawrence and bradley cooper
they have had plenty of opportunities to remind audiences of their spark together, co-starring four times since 2012.
