Which Movie Costars Were Incredibly Amazing Together Onscreen, And Should Have Dated In Real Life?

Angelina Jolie and Michelle Pfeiffer would make an excellent pair.

I'm just gonna cut to the chase, folks: I am, without a doubt, an absolute sucker for movie costars who have electric chemistry. I understand that some of these actors are in loving and committed relationships, but these costars have such a unique dynamic everyone goes bananas for — and wouldn't it be lovely if they actually dated offscreen?

So let's have fun for a second, dear reader: Which popular movie costars didn't date in real life, but you believe 100% should have?

Warner Bros. Pictures

Maybe you thought Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper were positively amazing together in A Star Is Born (2018), and were completely devastated when they never became a couple in real life. I mean, did you see their chemistry when they sang songs together (and beyond)?! Like, come ON.

Or perhaps you really loved Angelina Jolie and Michelle Pfeiffer in Maleficent: Mistress of Evil and thought to yourself, Now, hey, they would make a swell couple! Angelina had a crush on Michelle growing up, so it'd make all the sense in the world!!!

Maleficent telling Queen Ingrith, "There are many who prey on the innocent, I'm sure your kind would agree"

Or maybe you thought Gabrielle Union and LL Cool J were totally believable as a couple in Deliver Us From Eva, and were surprised to learn they never went on a date, became a couple, got engaged, or were ever married. They were so cute together onscreen, so according to my pop culture calculations, they would've made a perfect pair offscreen!
