There are so many movies that sparked real life romances. Seeing as Hollywood is all about the makeups and breakups, I tried to keep this list centered around the people who got their happy endings. That means there's no Katie and Tom, Johnny Depp and Winona Ryder, etc. Here are some of the movies that sparked some real life romance!

Aniston filed for divorce, and Pitt and Jolie have been in a relationship since then. They have six children together.

4 The Amazing Spider-Man

The Amazing Spider-ManFavorite couple ever? I think so. Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield starred in The Amazing Spider-Man together and have been dating since 2011. They joined forces once again when they reprised their roles for the 2014 sequel.

Green LanternGossip Girl's Blake Lively met her future husband Ryan Reynolds on the set of Green Lantern! The duo have been married since 2012 and are, in my opinion, one of the best-looking couples around!

7 Fantastic Four

Fantastic FourI think Jessica and Cash are one of the sweetest couples around. The pair met while filming Fantastic Four in 2005. Jessica was starring in the movie, while Cash served as a director's assistant! The two have been married since 2008 and have the cutest little girls, Honor and Haven!

8 Brokeback Mountain

Brokeback MountainHeath Ledger and Michelle Williams started dating while filming Brokeback Mountain together. In an interview with, Michelle said, “Our initial meeting, the circumstances of how we first met, were cosmic or something.” The pair dated from 2004-2007 and had a daughter together. The two unfortunately did not get their happy ending as Ledger passed away in 2008, but their relationship was too good to dismiss on this list. When asked if Michelle thought the two would end up together, this is what she said: “It would make me too sad to answer but it’s also…one of my favorite things to imagine. It’s actually one of my favorite places to visit.”

9 The Notebook

The NotebookOkay, okay. I know I said I'd focus on the couples that ended up happily married but I couldn't NOT mention this one. Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams starred in The Notebook (one of the best romance movies out there) back in 2004 and dated from 2005-2007. They rekindled their relationship a few years later but it didn't end up going anywhere. Now, Gosling is involved with his The Place Beyond the Pines co-star Eva Mendes, who just welcomed their baby girl! McAdams is currently dating the music manager Patrick Sambrook.

Well, there you have it. Keep in mind that these are only SOME of the happy endings that have started on set. Which couple is your favorite?
