Tom Cruise didn't jump on Oprah's couch during his courtship with second wife Nicole Kidman, but he did appear alongside the actress onscreen. They met on the set of 1990's "Days of Thunder," and starred together in 1999's "Eyes Wide Shut." The couple ended their 11 year marriage in 2001 and Cruise later began dating Penélope Cruz, his co-star in "Vanilla Sky." Warner Bros. Pictures
Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall first appeared together in 1944's "To Have And Have Not." They collaborated on several other projects, including "The Big Sleep" -- pictured here -- and "Dark Passage." They were married in 1945. Bogart died of cancer in 1957, leaving behind Bacall and their two children. Bacall passed away in August 2014 at the age of 89. Let's see which other famous couples took their romance from reel to real: Warner Bros. Pictures
Ricky Ricardo (Desi Arnaz) spent the better part of CBS' long-running "I Love Lucy" scolding his mischievous onscreen wife, played by Lucille Ball. Arnaz and Ball were married for 20 years and had two children together before divorcing in 1960. Getty Images
Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton's chemistry was so intense that they married and divorced twice. Taylor and Burton appeared in 11 films together between the '60s and '70s, including "Cleopatra" and "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" Twentieth Century Fox

Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell, who appeared in 1968's "The One and Only, Genuine, Original Family Band," have been romantically linked since 1983. The pair also co-starred in 1984's "Swing Shift" and 1987's "Overboard." "Love is love. Promises are promises. And devotion is part of it," Hawn told Oprah. "What does a piece of paper have to do with it for me? ... I met Kurt and we fell in love and we both agreed. Is there a reason to get married?" Warner Bros. Pictures

Courteney Cox and David Arquette met while filming "Scream" in 1996. The pair tied the knot in 1999, but they have since divorced. They have one daughter together. Dimension Films
It's fair to assume that Freddie Prinze Jr. thinks Sarah Michelle Gellar is all that. The actors met on the set of the 1997 thriller "I Know What You Did Last Summer," and tied the knot in Mexico in September 2002. The lovebirds, who have two kids, co-starred in "Scooby Doo" that same year. Warner Bros. Pictures

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck, or should we say "Bennifer," starred together in "Gigli." The 2003 film flopped at the box office, earning just over $3 million its opening weekend.

Nicole Ari Parker and Boris Kodjoe were married in 2005 after appearing together on Showtime's "Soul Food," which premiered in 2000. They have two children together. Showtime
Fans of "The Notebook" really seemed to root for Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling. They even won the award for best kiss at the 2004 MTV Movie Awards. Sadly, the pair split after three years. Gosling is now linked to Eva Mendes, his co-star in "The Place Beyond the Pines," and McAdams went on to date her "Midnight in Paris" co-star Michael Sheen for two years. New Line Cinema
Love blossomed on the set of "Mr. and Mrs. Smith" for Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie; unfortunately, Pitt was still married to Jennifer Aniston at the time. They divorced in October 2005, about four months after the film hit theaters, and Pitt and Jolie have been together - and then some - ever since. The couple will now reunite on screen for the first time in nine years for "By the Sea," a drama that Jolie wrote and will direct. Twentieth Century Fox
