It's common in Hollywood for actors to fall in love after playing a couple in a movie, just look at Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. But what about the actors who quietly work with their significant others? We think it's more interesting to play "Spot The Spouse" when watching a movie or TV show.
Anna Faris and Chris Pratt - What's Your Number? and Take Me Home Tonight
20th Century Fox/captcevans.tumblr.com
Everyone now knows that Anna & Chris are married, given Chris' extremely successful 2014 with The Lego Movie and as Star-Lord in Guardians of the Galaxy. But back when Anna was in her prime rom-com streak, she starred in What's Your Number? with Chris Evans as her leading man, and her husband of 2 years (at the time) as one of her "disgusting" ex-boyfriends. The couple met in 2007 on the set of the move Take Me Home Tonight, which didn't have a theatrical release until 2011.
Megan Mullally and Nick Offerman - Parks and Recreation and Will & Grace
Bet you didn't realize that Tammy 2 is actually married to Ron Swanson (Nick Offerman) in real life. The couple has been married since 2003, having met in 2000 while working on a play together in L.A. Over the course of the 7 seasons of Parks & Rec, Megan has played Swanson's crazy ex-wife Tammy. During the fourth season of Will & Grace, Offerman had a guest spot on his wife's popular show.
Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka - How I Met Your Mother
NPH starred on this show for 9 years and his husband (boyfriend at the time of his first appearance), David Burtka, appeared on the show as the crazy obsessed ex-boyfriend of Lily (Alyson Hannigan) that was not ready to let her go.
Cobie Smulders and Taran Killam - How I Met Your Mother
Taran made his first appearance on Cobie's hit show in 2006, when they were still dating. He appeared on the show several times, before and after their 2009 wedding, as one of Barney's co-workers. He made a final appearance in 2014 during the episode "The End of the Aisle."
Charlie Day and Mary Elizabeth Ellis - It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia and Reno 911!
Charlie is married to the waitress! Charlie and Mary Elizabeth Ellis met in 2001, but began dating in 2004 and married by 2006. They first appeared as an incestuous twins on Reno 911! before It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia began in 2006, on which Charlie is a main character on and Mary has played "the waitress" throughout the series.
Steve and Nancy Carell - The Office, The Daily Show, and The 40 Year Old Virgin
This couple met back in the early 90s when Steve Carrell performed with the troupe The Second City and Nancy was one of his students. They first worked together as correspondents on The Daily Show, before Steve was a leading man. Nancy played a health clinic counselor in The 40-Year-Old Virgin. Later on The Office, she first played Steve's character's girlfriend, Carol Stills, on the show (but that relationship didn't work out), who was also a realtor.
Adam and Jackie Sandler - Most Adam Sandler movies
After meeting through Rob Schneider after working on Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigalo, Adam Sandler gave Jackie a role in his film Big Daddy and she's appeared in many of his films since, such as: 50 First Dates, Eight Crazy Nights, Grown Ups, and more. The couple got married in 2003 and have two children together.
Ben Stiller and Christine Taylor - Zoolander and Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story
You've probably noticed a pattern of Christine Taylor popping up in many Ben Stiller films, such as the two above, as well as Tropic Thunder. Usually, she plays the girl that Ben Stiller's character wants to get with (and doesn't, except for Zoolander), but you probably didn't realize they have been married since 2000.

Ethan Hawke is reuniting with his Training Day co-star Denzel Washington for the upcoming remake of classic western The Magnificent Seven. The Boyhood star is nearing a deal to become one of the gang of gunslingers in the new version of the iconic 1960 John Sturges film, according to TheWrap.
The casting not only reunites Hawke with Oscar-winner Washington, but also with their director Antoine Fuqua, who will helm the western, nearly 15 years after Training Day.
Guardians of the Galaxy star Chris Pratt and actress Haley Bennett will also co-star in the film, which was written by True Detective creator Nic Pizzolatto and The Blind Side director John Lee Hancock.
Last night was the final episode in one of the greatest shows we've ever watched. We said goodbye to Parks and Recreation after 7 incredible seasons. We're still drying our eyes after that finale. Watching the cast tell each other how much they love each other on Late Night With Seth Meyers didn't help with the tears.
What's even cuter (and made us ugly cry hard) is that they all sang "Bye, Bye Li'l Sebastian" together:
Featuring Chris Pratt on guitar! We'll miss them even more than we miss Li'l Sebastian.
We're not alone in our sadness after saying goodbye:
If you need me today, I'm probably crying about Parks. #ParksFarewell

Not Another Teen Movie came out 14 years ago but it's still extremely relevant - and hilarious - to this day. High school movies are so played out.
1. This magical 10 Things I Hate About You reference will never get old:
"Sing a song with her name in it."
2. This very meta Pretty In Pink moment:
3. No 80's teen movie was safe:
4. This movie perfected the arrogant, star jock:
5. And the unique girl who didn't "fit" into any high school clique:
6. It really calls out what it means to be popular:
7. It had very appropriate teenage reading materials:
8. This was Chris Evans greatest acting achievement to date:
9. Or maybe it was this one:
10. It had the tortured artist mourning the loss of a parent:
11. And cheerleaders who definitely did not steal this routine:
12. They were the cheerleaders that knew how to bring "it":
13. Jake's dad had the perfect way to cheer him up:
14. It made fun of how people actually use slang words:
15. This movie even had the "token" black guy:
16. This punch sequence is now infamous:
17. It nailed every movie makeover ever:
18. It perfectly got how we all feel about teen movies:

Actor/singer Matthew Morrison struggled to contain his emotions on Saturday (21Feb15) as filming on hit musical comedy series Glee wrapped for the final time, admitting there were "a lot of tears". The cast and crew shot the final scenes for the series finale over the weekend, marking the end of a six-season run, and Morrison reveals he barely managed to hold it together during his last day on the set of Glee.
He tells Eonline.com, "It was a tough day. I'm not going to cry now because I kind of got it all out, but it was a really tough day."
Morrison was handed the honour of singing Glee's closing song and the emotional scene left everyone in tears.
He says, "It was a beautiful send-off. But it was tough. I was singing to all the kids and Amber Riley starts crying and I'm like, 'Come on, don't do this to me right now.' And then Lea Michele starts crying and then Darren Criss and Chris Colfer.
"There were a lot of hugs and a lot of tears. It's been an amazing almost seven years."
Producers threw a carnival party for the Glee cast and crew to celebrate the end of the series and Michele shared a few photos from the bash on Twitter.
She also thanked fans for all of their support, writing, "I'm so grateful... to have had this incredibly amazing experience. Thank you so much to all of our amazing Gleeks (Glee fans) who supported us so much! I love you guys.
"We were so lucky to have had the most amazing crew who worked so hard everyday to make the show amazing. I'm so grateful for them.. So thank you all again so much from the bottom of my heart. I will miss Rachel Berry so very much."
Her co-stars Riley, Criss, Kevin McHale and Becca Tobin also took to Twitter to express their thanks to Glee fans.
Production on Tom Cruise's latest Mission: Impossible sequel has been temporarily shut down to allow director Christopher Mcquarrie time to tweak the ending, just five months before the film's scheduled release. The actor has been shooting the action-packed movie in Europe in recent months, but filming recently ground to a halt after movie bosses at Paramount Pictures decided the finale was unsatisfactory.
Cruise is now helping McQuarrie and a writer pal rework the final scenes to give Mission: Impossible 5 a better ending, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
A studio insider says, "Chris, Tom and a third person wanted to take a minute to get from what they thought was a good place to a more perfect place."
Mission: Impossible 5 is still expected to hit movie theatres at the end of July (15), as planned, after having its release moved up from Christmas Day (25Dec15).
It's not the first time Paramount executives have chosen to change the ending of a film at late notice - director Marc Forster had to scramble to reshoot the final third of Brad Pitt's World War Z zombie movie in 2013 after test audiences reacted negatively to its original conclusion. It eventually became a box office hit.
After seven seasons, our beloved Parks and Recreation is coming to an end. There are so many things we will miss about the show, from the characters to the dynamite quotes. It feels like the end of an era and a real loss to television. In fact, there will be several things society will lose along with the loss of the series.
1. We will have no one to compare our work ethic to make us feel better about ourselves.
2. We won't know the definition of a man.
3. THERE IS NO LIFE WITHOUT MOUSERAT!
4. We won't be caught up on the "cool kid" catch phrases.
5. We'll be out of touch with the fancy new inventions that are coming our way...
6. ...and the fashion trends that only Tom Haverford can predict.
7. We won't have an outlet for our anger and will probably explode without Jerry/Terry/Gary to take it out on.
8. We'll forget what a straight up psycho ex can do to you, and how it should be handled.
9. We'll have to make up our own lyrics for being obnoxious.
10. We'll forget that there are hard working, good people (fictional or otherwise) in politics.
11. Germaphobes will have no one on TV to relate to.
12. We'll literally forget how to fake enthusiasm every second of every day.
13. And more importantly, how to be brutally honest.
14. We'll forget what true love means.
15. THE TRUEST OF LOVE.
The only solution: watch it constantly on Netflix and cry endlessly at the February 24th finale...
Actress/singer Mandy Moore spent Valentine's Day (14Feb15) at a ranch retreat with her best friend Minka Kelly weeks after confirming she had split from rocker husband Ryan Adams. A representative for Moore and Adams announced the couple had "mutually decided" to end its almost six-year marriage last month (Jan15), and legal papers subsequently revealed Moore and Adams had actually separated in August (14).
Moore decided not to spend her first post-marriage Valentine's Day weekend alone and recruited her gal pal Kelly for a girls' trip to The Ranch at Live Oak Malibu in California.
The friends documented their activities, including hiking, with snaps on their Instagram.com pages.
In one of Moore's first posts, she donned breathing apparatus, hooked up to a variety of wires, for a comedy treadmill shot, captioned, "Super creepers, blurry photo but testing my fitness acumen to assess how I can properly push myself over the next few days."
On Saturday (14Feb15), Moore added another snap of Kelly resting her head on her friend's shoulder after a hike, and wrote, "We got separated from the rest of the group but we surrendered to a different path up and through these mountains and it was worth it. So lucky to share this time with you @minkak! You're a total bad-a** and inspiration."
Kelly has also been unlucky in love, splitting from Captain America star Chris Evans last year (14). The actress has also dated John Mayer and baseball hero Derek Jeter, among others.
Gwyneth Paltrow and her estranged husband Chris Martin eschewed romance on Valentine's Day (14Feb15) by spending it together with their two children. The former couple was pictured walking arm-in-arm on a beach in California on Saturday (14Feb15) along with their kids Apple and Moses.
Justin Timberlake teamed up with comedy pal Jimmy Fallon to launch the star-studded Saturday Night Live 40th Anniversary special on U.S. TV on Sunday (15Feb15). Former SNL regular Dan Aykroyd urged viewers to "stay tuned" for the three-and-a-half hour show during the red carpet pre-show, insisting, "You're never gonna see TV like this again", and he wasn't wrong.
Timberlake kicked off the proceedings by interrupting his pal Fallon's opening song-and-dance number to join him for a rap number, referencing some of the show's most famous catchphrases and skits.
The two pals closed their i with a song-and-dance number, in which they named SNL's most famous comedians.
Sir Paul McCartney and Paul Simon then teamed up during a second monologue, during which Steve Martin fought to convince the starry audience that he was the best host - over Tom Hanks, Alec Baldwin, Melissa McCarthy, Chris Rock and Miley Cyrus.
In among the medley of historical skits, dotted throughout the special, there were also updates of classic sketches, including a celebrity Jeopardy gameshow, featuring Jim Carrey as Matthew McConaughey, an updated Wayne's World, and spoof soap The Californians with Bradley Cooper as a pool boy, Kerry Washington as a doctor and Taylor Swift as a hippie actress, which ended with Cooper smooching Betty White.
Other highlights included Keith Richards introducing McCartney's rendition of Maybe I'm Amazed, Edward Norton, Melissa McCarthy and Emma Stone impersonating their favourite SNL characters, and Miley Cyrus covering Simon's 50 Ways to Leave Your Lover.
The oddest moment came when rapper Kanye West performed his hit Jesus Walks while lying on the floor, beneath an illuminated white sheet. West eventually stood and sang his new song Only One.
Star guests also included Robert De Niro, Jack Nicholson, Jerry Seinfeld, James Franco and Michael Douglas and former SNL regulars Eddie Murphy, Adam Sandler, Chevy Chase, Will Ferrell and Bill Murray.
The marathon special ended with a performance from Paul Simon, but there was no 'N Sync reunion, as had been rumoured earlier in the day.
