Sometimes rumors about our favorite stars are so believable that even the couples involved with them may start questioning whether they are true or not. However, those rumors wouldn’t be there if the chemistry between those pairs weren’t mind-blowingly obvious. And it always warms our hearts to learn more about duos whose strong bonds never stray far from the spotlight.
1. Emma Watson and Tom Felton
Watson was 11 when she starred in the first Harry Potter, and she admitted she fell in love with Felton on set. Though not perhaps in the way we might want to hear, Tom also revealed that he always had secret feelings for his co-star and in spite of him using the familiar old line: “I love her like a sister,” there was more to it than that. Today the former co-stars are firm friends.
2. Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet
Winslet and DiCaprio first met on the set of Titanic in 1997 as Rose and Jack, but their incredible chemistry made us wonder whether they had been romantically involved off-screen too.
However, despite the strong bond between the 2, their relationship has never strayed into romantic territory.
3. Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes
The Stitches star and the Worth It singer would be a match made in pop music heaven, however the truth is they are just buddies. Shawn and Camila became friends when they both joined her then-boyfriend Austin Mahone‘s headlining tour in 2014.
4. Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga
Lady Gaga and her A Star is Born co-star Bradley Cooper performed their duet Shallow at the 2019 Oscars Award Ceremony. Their chemistry was so strong on stage that the audience wished that the pair were an actual couple.
5. Jake Gyllenhaal and Rachel McAdams
While at some point rumors had been running rampant that Jake Gyllenhaal was dating his Southpaw co-star Rachel McAdams, the 2 seem to be no more than good friends with good chemistry.
6. Lupita Nyong’o and Jared Leto
The 2 became close on the 2014 awards season trail, where Jared was making the rounds for his role in Dallas Buyers Club and Nyong’o was on the trail with 12 Years a Slave. However, that only lead to a beautiful Hollywood friendship and never evolved into a relationship.
7. David Schwimmer and Jennifer Aniston
The popular duo won the world’s hearts as on-again-off-again couple Ross and Rachel in the hit 90s sitcom, Friends. However, Schwimmer has always denied the rumors of dating his former co-star.
8. Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler
Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler have an undeniable chemistry on and off-screen. Their celebrity relationship has spawned some of the best romcoms, like The Wedding Singer, 50 First Dates, and Blended, and made them a popular duo in the genre. Fans have agonized over why the 2 never dated in real life. Drew attributes the platonic nature of their relationship to the reason why she loves making movies with Sandler and the reason why they always work so well together.
