17 On-Screen Couples With Amazing Chemistry!Published on December 18, 2013. Updated March 30, 2017
On-screen chemistry has always proven to be interesting! Sometimes the chemistry translates off-screen while other times the on-screen couples prove to be really great friends and nothing more. We have a list of 17 couples who had amazing on-screen chemistry!
17. Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio from “Titanic”
Off-screen Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio are good friends who have never been interested in each other romantically, which is surprising if you have watched them in “Titanic!” Their relationship on-screen is extraordinarily passionate, but it is all acting in spite of rumors floating around suggesting that there is something off-screen as well.s_bukley / Shutterstock.com
16. Jake Gyllenhaal and Heath Ledger from “Brokeback Mountain”
Jake Gyllenhaal and Heath Ledger in “Brokeback Mountain” had great emotional chemistry. The relationship between Gyllenhaal and Ledger was so convincing that it was shocking to learn that Ledger was in fact dating Michelle Williams – who happened to play his wife in the film. We suppose that Ledger and Williams’ chemistry off-screen didn’t interfere with the lack of chemistry they were supposed to demonstrate on-screen!
15. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt from “Mr. and Mrs. Smith”
The chemistry between Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt in “Mr. and Mrs. Smith” was enough to break up a marriage – Pitt’s marriage to Jennifer Aniston to be exact! Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have both said that they fell in love on set, so we can assume that their chemistry in “Mr. and Mrs. Smith” was a bit more than a good act.Featureflash / Shutterstock.com
14. Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes from “Romeo & Juliet”
The sexual chemistry between Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes in “Romeo & Juliet” is palpable and quite convincing. DiCaprio and Danes were rumoured to have dated after filming which, given the amount of chemistry they exuded on set, isn’t surprising! Unfortunately, like all great things, Romeo and Juliet died and DiCaprio and Danes broke up!
13. Cary Elwes and Robin Wright from “The Princess Bride”
There is a reason that “The Princess Bride” is considered one of the greatest stories brought onto film – and we think it is the chemistry between Cary Elwes and Robin Wright! Apparently the on-screen chemistry was off-screen as well! Wright admitted that she asked for more kissing scenes with Elwes! No wonder these two exuded such passion throughout the film!
12. Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone from “The Amazing Spider-Man” Franchise
According to Andrew Garfield, when it comes to chemistry between actors and actresses, it is either there or it isn’t! Garfield’s on-screen chemistry with Emma Stone is definitely there in “The Amazing Spider-Man.” The chemistry with these two is actually off-screen as well.

7. Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling from “The Notebook”
Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling were great together in “The Notebook.” In fact, McAdams was given the part of Allie because of her chemistry with Gosling.

6. Eric Stonestreet and Jesse Tyler Ferguson from “Modern Family”

When it comes to on-screen chemistry, it is really hard to beat Kate Hudson and Matthew McConaughey in “How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days.” The chemistry between the two of them was undeniable and it would be really easy to imagine these two in an actual relationship.
