What does it take to be a good actor? Experience, skills, talent and endless training are only a few things that go into the formula that helps an actor to become a successful one. When an audience is looking at the screen, they don’t see years of hard work and hundreds of takes, just a polished character. 

Sometimes, because of how brilliant the actors were in the movie, people might even start to speculate things. For example, a lot of viewers like to guess whether actors who play couples in the movie aren’t a thing behind the scenes. Having this in mind, one Reddit user asked people online to share the names of the actors who “had so much chemistry you can't believe they didn't date in real life.” This question encouraged people to share their opinions and have a heated discussion about certain actors and movie plots. 

Which one of these actor couples do you find to have the most chemistry? Don’t forget to leave your thoughts in the comments down below!

30 TV And Movie Couples With The Best Chemistry, As Pointed Out By Folks In This Online Group The Notebook is a weird one. During filming, Gosling and McAdams reportedly couldn't stand each other, to the point where in some scenes they had to be filmed separately because they couldn't stand being in the same room together. But in the scenes they had together, there was some obvious sexual chemistry. Like, really obvious, bursting off the screen. Sometime after the movie, perhaps they finally admitted somethings there and started dating for a while
