5 Celebrities Speak on Dating Costars

Hooking up on set – boy does this happen a lot. From Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson to Brad and Angelina, many stars find love as they work – here is what 5 celebs have to say on dating someone your currently working with. Some say that it happens because you become close to a person after sharing experiences, while Lea Michele is thankful it doesn’t happen because she believes it might lead to tension on set.


Alexander Skarsgård

Alexander believes it is something that happens because everyone becomes so close when working together: “Well, of course it happens, you have a very intense experience together and I don’t think it’s very uncommon that people meet at work. I don’t f—ing know! You get to know people, you become friends, and then it leads to something else.”


Paul Rudd 

Paul Rudd has said that he has never dated someone he’s working with: “Dating a costar – I’ve never done it. I am the wrong guy to ask for that. I’ve been with my wife as long as I’ve been acting! So I don’t know.”


Nina Dobrev 

Nina says dating a costar is difficult and could lead to “sticky” situations: “I think it could definitely get sticky if you dated your costar, to be completely honest, dating an actor is very complicated. There’s a lot of vanity involved. And they’re in their head, and they’re kind of crazy. And you’re always surrounded by beautiful people. I would prefer not to date an actor.”

Lea Michele 

Glee star Lea Michele is grateful no one dates each other on the show because she doesn’t want things to be awkward:“I’m so thankful that doesn’t happen. If people hooked up, there’d be awkward tension.”


Gerard Butler 

Gerard Butler admits that he has done it before, but wouldn’t do it again: “Earlier in my career, I had a couple of relationships with co-stars and both times it was a disaster, that’s a dangerous path. When you’re making a film with someone, you get to know them very well indeed and it’s too easy to develop a sort of obsession with them that you think at the time might be love. But it isn’t.”
