As Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone sign on for their third movie together (woohoo!), the hotly-anticipated La La Land, we revisit Marie Claire’s favourite Hollywood movie twosomes who’ve worked with each other time and time again.
From Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper’s Oscar-winning turns on the big screen together in Silver Linings Playbook, American Hustle and Serena, right back through some of the most memorable rom-com duos (Kate Hudson and Matthew McConaughey, we’re looking at you) to the likes of Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio – oh, and did we mention 90s silver screen power couple Julia Roberts and Richard Gere? – this lot have worked together on some absolute classics and in the process cemented themselves amongst our very favourite cinematic duos over the years.
Movie night, anyone?
Having cemented our fandom with their super-hot/super-cute chemistry in the brilliant Crazy, Stupid, Love in 2011, these two then teamed up for 2013s Depression-era set drama Gangster Squad and are now due to work together again on big screen musical La La Land which will be helmed by Whiplash director Damien Chazelle. In short, we cant wait.
Since the Oscar success of Silver Linings Playbook in 2012, these two have already clocked up three movies together including drama Serena and the star-studded 70s-set American Hustle.
Surely one of the most iconic duos in Hollywood ever, ever, EVER, these two not only appeared in more than ten films together but were married to each other – twice. For unrivalled silver screen chemistry watch Cleopatra – on the set of which Taylor and Burton first met and fell in love and for pure silver screen magic, catch Whos Afraid Of Virginia Woolf?
Who can forget the beginnings of Drew and Adams cinematic collaborations? Yep, 1998s The Wedding Singer is still as good now as it was then but these two have since clocked up two more big screen outings together including 50 First Dates and 2014s Blended.
As Edward and Vivian in Pretty Woman, Julia Roberts and Richard Gere were pretty much our favourite ever on-screen couples, so cue global rom-com-infused delight when nine years later the two paired up again for Runaway Bride in 1999.
OSCARS 2013: ALL THE STARS & STYLE
Five movies together and counting, these twos rather fabulous and oh-so-OTT on-screen hook ups are, by and large, under the direction and creative mind of Depps BFF and Bonham Carters former partner, Tim Burton.
Arguably the Julia and Richard of the Noughties, these two were rom-com dynamite in How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days (Burberry print shirt, anyone?) and rekindled that ol’ on-screen flame five years later for Fools Gold in 2008.
Whilst were still not emotionally stable enough to talk about The Fault In Our Stars without shedding a tear (or a 1000), if youre big fans of Shailene and Ansel you can also catch them as brother and sister in Divergent.
As two of the biggest Hollywood mega stars in the last twenty years, it should come as little surprise that Julia and Brad have worked on a fair few films together over the years, remember Ocean’s Eleven, Ocean’s Twelve and The Mexican? ‘Course you do.
