7 Hottest On-screen Hollywood Couples of All Time
Hollywood movies have inspired millions of romantic fantasies for people around the world. The success of a romantic film depends a lot on the chemistry that the on-screen couple share. Sometimes, even if the storyline is great, the lack of chemistry can make a movie forgettable. Let’s take a look at some of the most sizzling on-screen pairs that we fervently wished would get together in real life as well.
1. Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks
'Sleepless in Seattle' and 'You've Got Mail' are the only 2 movies that these stellar actors were paired in. They displayed such deep love for each other on-screen that it's hard to believe such a compatible couple aren't together in real life.
2. Julie Delpy and Ethan Hawke
Anyone who has seen 'Before Sunrise' will tell you how eagerly they awaited the sequel, 'Before Sunset', just to see the lead pair happily walking into the sunset hand in hand. Julie with her French child-woman portrayal and Ethan with his American boy persona shared chemistry that only dreams are made of.
3. Richard Gere and Julia Roberts
Rom-coms like 'Pretty Woman' and 'Runaway Bride' are hailed as classics, largely owing to the realistic romance that Richard Gere and Julia Roberts shared on-screen. Casting them together again would make for a great hat-trick movie outing.
4. Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio
'Titanic' is without a doubt regarded as the mother of all romantic films, so obviously the lead pair had had to have sparkling chemistry to entice viewers of all generations with the tragic love story. Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio set the screen on fire later too as an older couple in the modern era in 'Revolutionary Road'.
5. Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds
Although these two actors are super hot and have a huge fan following, it's a wonder they have only starred together in one movie, 'The Proposal'. This rom-com not only had a great script in place, it also amazed audiences with the chemistry that the lead pair shared so comfortably.
6. Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams
Carrying a classic romance like the bestseller 'The Notebook' - the book which made innumerable people believe in love all over again - is a mammoth task. More often than not, the movie adaptation of a book doesn't meet the high expectations of the readers, especially a romance wherein the lead couple has to have crackling chemistry. However, the magical pairing of Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams created wonders on-screen and reinstated people's faith in the iconic characters of Noah and Allie.
7. Vivien Leigh and Clark Gable
The iconic pairing of Vivien Leigh and Clark Gable worked wonders on-screen and people still find it hard to believe that two people who were not romantically involved in reality could sizzle so much on-screen together. There is no doubt, that they did full justice to the iconic characters of Scarlett O'Hara and Rhett Butler.
