Mel Brooks is one of the funniest men in Hollywood.
The Hollywood lifestyle isn’t exactly known for creating long-term romances, but these thirteen celebrity couples met and often fell in love on-set. From Kirk Douglas and Anne Buydens to Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick, read on to find out which TV and film sets sparked real love.
Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner – Even though Affleck was engaged to Jennifer Lopez at the time, he fell for Garner on the set of Daredevil. “That’s where I found my wife,” he said. “We met on Pearl Harbor, which people hate, but we fell in love on Daredevil.”
Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell – They met while filming The One and Only Genuine, Original Family Band, but the age difference was too much for Goldie Hawn. “I was 21 and he was 16 and I thought he was adorable but he was much too young. And then years later we met up again and I liked him and I remembered that I liked him very much when I first met him. But we both said we would never go out with another actor so it just shows you never can tell.”
Seth Rogen and Lauren Miller – Rogen and Miller met when they were writing for Da Ali G Show. They have been married since 2011.
