Who says you can’t combine your professional and personal lives? Many couples in the entertainment industry have made a habit of working together.
Fortunately, it appears to work most of the time. For this reason, we are going to look at couples who frequently work together, we are focusing on married people and couples who have been together for so long that they are effectively married in all. We also included a few couples who are no longer together. Their work lives on, despite the fact that their union did not.
Ben Falcone and Melissa McCarthy
Falcone played a minor role in McCarthy’s breakout film “Bridesmaids,” but some wish the two didn’t collaborate frequently. While we hope they make each other – and their children – happy, the films they have worked together have typically been McCarthy’s less well-received films. Falcone’s film credits include “Tammy,” “The Boss,” and “The Life of the Party.”
Nick Offerman and Megan Mullally
Did you know Mullally is married to Offerman? We’re kidding, because the two are constantly appearing together, both as characters and discussing their love and attraction to each other. We can only hope that their relationship is more stable than Ron Swanson and Tammy 2.
Jesse Plemons and Kirsten Dunst
They haven’t worked together much yet, but Dunst and Plemons have done some great work together, so we’re keeping them intact. The best season of “Fargo” revolved around Dunst and Plemons as a couple. They starred together again in “The Power of the Dog,” for which they were both nominated for Academy Awards.
Christine Taylor and Ben Stiller
If you’re of a certain age, you might recall Taylor as Melody from “Hey Dude.” We probably don’t need to remind you about Stiller. Stiller and Taylor married in 2000, but divorced 17 years later. Taylor, on the other hand, had supporting roles in several Stiller films during that time, including “Zoolander,” in which she plays his love interest
Noah Baumbach and Greta Gerwig
Noah Baumbach was previously married to actress Jennifer Jason Leigh, so he had a notable romance prior to his relationship with Gerwig. They divorced in 2013, after splitting in 2010. Meanwhile, Gerwig appeared in Baumbach’s first film, “Greenberg,” in 2010, and the two were officially dating in 2011. We won’t go into detail about the timeline. We only know that the two co-wrote Baumbach’s films “Frances Ha” and “Mistress America,” both of which Gerwig starred in.
Jay Z and Beyonce
Oh, you know, just two of the world’s biggest stars. Two musical titans. A true power couple in music. They had incredible careers, but there are also numerous collaborations. “Crazy in Love,” are three words we have for you.
Helena Bonham Carter and Tim Burton
When Burton and model Lisa Marie were together, she frequently appeared in his films, including “Ed Wood” and “Mars Attacks.” Burton and Bonham Carter’s collaborations are little meatier during their time together. After all, she is the titular corpse bride in “Corpse Bride.” In addition, both Lisa Marie and Bonham Carter appeared in Burton’s adaptation of “Planet of the Apes.” That’s a little strange.
Judd Apatow and Leslie Mann
At times, it appears that Apatow only makes films to cast his family. If it’s an Apatow film, you can bet his wife Mann will appear, and there’s a good chance his daughters will appear as well. Mann is a talented actress who works a lot when her husband Apatow isn’t around, so it’s not pure nepotism.
Hill and McGraw
Hill and McGraw are both huge stars among country music fans of a certain age. They both started their careers before getting married in 1996, but they have become country royalty together. McGraw and Hill have toured together and released a record together, “The Rest of Our Life,” in 2017.
Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem
The two Spanish actors appeared together in 1992’s “Jamon, Jamon,” but they are just two ships passing in the night at the time. Bardem and Cruz did not marry until 2007, possibly while filming “Vicky Christina Barcelona,” one of three films they have made together. By the way, this is a rare Hollywood couple in which both partners have received Academy Awards.
Bobby Cannavale and Rose Byrne
Byrne and Cannavale have been together since 2012 and have two children together, so they definitely qualify for this list. They’ve worked together on few films, including the big action comedy “Spy,” in which they both played key supporting roles. Both Byrne and Cannavale can switch between comedy and drama quite well, as seen on the TV show “Mrs. America.”
Dave Franco and Alison Brie
Brie and Franco had a tremendous year in 2017. They appeared in two films that year, “The Little Hours” and “The Disaster Artist.” Oh, and they also got married. That was probably important to them as well.
Len Wiseman and Kate Beckinsale
Beckinsale and Wiseman had been together for a long time when she landed the lead role in his 2003 film “Underworld.” They had been married since 2004. They went on to collaborate on a few more “Underworld” films as well as Wiseman’s “Total Recall” remake. Unfortunately, their love affair was not meant to last. Wiseman divorced in 2016, the same year “Underworld: Blood Wars” was released. Beckinsale returned to the lead role, but Wiseman did not direct.
Sarah Michelle Geller and Freddie Prinze Jr.
Fortunately, Fred and Daphne remain together. Or, more specifically, the actors who played Fred and Daphne in two “Scooby-Doo” films. Prinze Jr. and former Buffy the Vampire Slayer Geller met on the set of the forgettable slasher film “I Know What You Did Last Summer.” It worked out for them, because they married in 2002 and are still together. That’s pretty amazing.
Swizz Beatz and Alicia Keys
Swizz Beatz, aka Kasseem Dean, is widely regarded as the greatest rap producer of all time. By “some,” we mean “Kanye West,” who said exactly that. He’s not the only one who admires Beatz’s work, and it appears that Keys admires both him and his production abilities. Beatz, who has been married to Keys since 2010, has produced several of her songs as well as a few on which she has a supporting role.
