15 Acting Duos Who Often Film Movies Together, and We’re Happy to See Them Too
You’ve probably noticed that some famous actors quite often appear together in different movies. Very often their mutual work becomes a real breakthrough in the careers of both actors. For example, this is exactly what happened to Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone. Moreover, such a partnership on-screen might become the beginning of a long-term friendship and an impressive artistic union. Magicorama gathered the most famous on-screen “couples” that often appear in movies together. And it looks like they made each movie they starred in even better and more interesting!
Adam Sandler and Rob Schneider
Adam Sandler became a successful comedian in school. Later, he established his own movie company, Happy Madison Productions, and invited Rob to participate in a mutual project. Off the set, they’re good friends and that’s why when they shoot a movie, they improvise a lot and add many unscripted jokes and new lines. Adam and Rob starred together in 18 movies overall.
Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence
Before the beginning of the shooting of Silver Linings Playbook, Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence had to attend 5-hour-long dance lessons for 2 weeks. The actor characterized his relationship with Jennifer as: “I love Jennifer. I’d play with her in any movie.” Later, the actress insisted on casting Cooper as her partner in her new movie Serena.
Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone
This acting duo started in 2011, during the shooting of Crazy, Stupid, Love. Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone have acted as a couple in love 3 times already. Their best result was the Award Winning movie La La Land. Curious to note that the leading parts of Mia and Sebastian should’ve been played by Miles Teller and Emma Watson.
Marion Cotillard and Guillaume Canet
Marion and Guillaume met on the set of drama Love Me If You Dare. They’d already filmed 4 movies together and voiced the cartoon The Little Prince. Interestingly, Guillaume invited Marion to take part in his projects — drama The Last Flight and comedy Rock’n Roll.
Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson
It’s probably one of the brightest and easily recognizable acting duos of the modern cinema world. The actors first met during the shooting of The Cable Guy which was directed by Ben Stiller. At that time, Ben Stiller was much more popular than his colleague; he often invited Wilson to different projects and has a lot to do with Wilson’s successful career development. They starred in 11 movies together.
Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter
An extravagant movie couple can’t be imagined without director Tim Burton who is also Carter’s ex-husband and Depp’s close friend. The actors took part in 7 mutual projects and only one of them, The Lone Ranger, was directed by another producer.
Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg
Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg met on the set of melodrama Adventureland. Jesse once said that he was a quiet kid and a very shy boy who didn’t have many friends; that’s why he’s very thankful to Woody Allen for the possibility to be part of an unrealistic relationship on-screen. He was talking about melodrama Café Society, where he and Kristen played a couple in love.
Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort
For a while, Shailene and Ansel were considered one the most romantic Hollywood couples. After The Fault in Our Stars aired, people thought the 2 were having an affair, just like they did on-screen. The actors even had to make an official announcement that they weren’t dating; you could only see them during social events and official gatherings.
