Rainy days and romance have had a long-standing love affair, much like many of these repeat collaborators.

The weather has been rainy lately and for me, that means it’s comfy PJs and romantic comedy marathons in bed season (i.e. my favourite time of the year). Maybe it’s because I watch a lot of super mushy, super romantic films but I’ve noticed a few actors that have been paired together on more than one occasion.

These on-screen couples stole our hearts with their insanely convincing love for one another. Some even had me wishing they were dating in real life. So why the re-pairing of the same two actors?
Simple. You can’t deny chemistry when you see it. Pair them together, I say!

Take a look at some of the best on-screen couples we’ve come to love:

Julia Roberts and Richard Gere

How could I not start this list off with my all-time-favourite, queen of the 90s rom-com: Julia Roberts. Her on-screen lover, Richard Gere, played an older, sexy, accomplished rich guy to her free-spirited, loud and troubled characters.

The duo’s films:
– Pretty Woman (1990)
– Runaway Bride (1999)

Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore

These two are the epitome of the goofy, laid-back partnership perfect for romantic comedies. I don’t know about you but I’m definitely rushing to the cinema to check out a film if these two are starring in it.

The duo’s films:
The Wedding Singer (1997)
– 50 First Dates (2004)
– Blended (2008)

Matthew McConaughey and Kate Hudson

These two were practically the poster kids for romantic comedies in the early 2000s. Their relationship on screen was usually fun and witty.

The duo’s films:
– How to Lose a Guy In 10 Days (2003)
– Fool’s Gold (2008)

Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio

There’s no way this list couldn’t make mention of our star-crossed lovers, Rose and Jack – I mean Kate and Leo…

The duo’s films:
Titanic (1997)
Revolutionary Road (2008)

Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan

These two gave us three of the top romantic films of all time, all we can do is bow and say thank you, really.

The duo’s films:
– Joe Versus the Volcano (1990)
– Sleepless in Seattle (1993)
– You’ve Got Mail (1998)

Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan

Let’s ignore the fact that the real-life couple broke our hearts when news of their split surfaced and instead focus on their on-screen romance that will forever be cemented in these films.

The duo’s films:
– Step Up (2006)
– 10 Years (2011)

These two were, in my opinion, an unlikely pairing. Yet, their on-screen romance had me convinced they were perfect for one another.

The duo’s films:
– Crazy, Stupid, Love (2010)
– Gangster Squad (2013)
– La La Land (2016)

Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence

Sure, they might have a slight sixteen-year age difference, but I mean, they’re actors. These frequent collaborators teamed up three times to show us their on-screen chemistry and forget all about their age.

The duo’s films:
Silver Linings Playbook (2012)
– American Hustle (2013)
– Serena (2014)
– Joy (2015)

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt

These two dominated as a couple in reality and on-screen. There’s not much I can say other than the fact that their relationship appeared strong, sexy, confident and appealing (most of these describe the two actors separately, might I add). Maybe it was the fact that their first film is infamous for starting their relationship, or because we were all so captivated by their relationship in real life; either way, I’m here for this on-screen coupling.

The duo’s films:
– Mr. and Mrs. Smith (2005)
– By the Sea (2015)

Keanu Reeves and Winona Ryder

These actors can’t seem to stop collaborating. We’re not complaining though.

The duo’s films:
Bram Stoker’s Dracula (1992)
– A Scanner Darkly (2006)
– The Private Lives of Pippa Lee (2009)
– Destination Wedding (2018)
