14 pairs of actors who were born to appear together in the same movies

These pairs of celebrities have starred in multiple movies together more than you know.

Sometimes, actors and actresses happen to share special chemistry on the screen that they end up working together several times throughout their careers.

After all, some pairs just work well as fake husbands and wives or manage to play a believable duo of best friends—probably because they are in real life.

And if their previous film was a huge success, directors and fans wouldn’t mind seeing them together more than once, even if it’s only in a fictional reality.

So which pairs of actors and actresses can’t seem to quit each other? We’ve rounded up 14.

#1 Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling

Emma and Ryan first appeared together in 2011 in Crazy, Stupid, Love and totally won our hearts from the beginning.

In one particular interview, Emma even said she loved working with Ryan so much that she would want to make as many movies with him as she could.

And it seems like her wish came true.

After Crazy, Stupid, Love became a hit, the duo played two more films together: in 2013 Gangster Squad and 2016 La La Land.

#2 Bruce Willis and Samuel L. Jackson

Another favorite duo was born in 2017 with the movie Lady Bird.

Timothée and Saoirse are close friends in real life and a great match on camera.

Timothée recently said that with Saoirse, he sometimes feels like it’s ‘more fun time than acting.’

The duo appeared in the 2019 film Little Women, where they played as close friends.

We’ll soon see Timothée and Saoirse together again in the upcoming 2021 movie The French Dispatch, though we aren’t sure who their characters are in the film.

Tom and Meg Ryan have played as a couple several times. Their first film, Joe Versus the Volcano, wasn’t a big success, though.
