5 Canadian Celebrities Who Married Their Former Costars

One of the marriages has lasted 36 years!

With the increase of dating apps setting up relationships today, it's almost rare when two people meet the old fashioned way. But there's nothing like good old fate bringing two people together who are destined to fall in love. In the entertainment industry, most celebrities actually end up dating and marrying other Hollywood stars, likely because they have that huge part of their life in common. Here are a few Canadian celebrities who married their former costars.

Ryan Reynolds & Blake Lively

Reynolds and Lively met when they co-starred in Green Lantern together in 2010 but didn't start dating until the next year. It didn't take long for them to fall head over heels and they got married in September 2012. They have three daughters aged four, three, and a newborn only a few months old.

Ryan Gosling & Eva Mendes

Gosling and Mendes starred in The Place Beyond The Pines which started filming in 2011 and premiered in 2012. The two never had an official wedding but have been partners since 2011 and have two daughters aged five and three-years-old. In that same year, they also starred in Drunk History Christmas alongside Jim Carrey. Mendes recently posted a throwback of their first movie together, captioning it, "Flashing back to one of my favourite scenes from A Place Beyond the Pines".

Jim Carrey & Lauren Holly

Carrey and Holly were in the classic Dumb and Dumber movie together and got married in 1996. But it was short-lived and they separated a year later. Carrey was also briefly engaged to another co-star, Renée Zellweger, who he shared the screen with in Me, Myself, and Irene. But they broke up and never followed through on the wedding.

Seth Rogen & Lauren Miller Rogen

Lucky Lauren Miller Rogen gets to share her life with Seth Rogen and his iconic laugh. The two started dating in 2004 after meeting on Da Ali G Show. They dated for quite a while before getting married in October 2011. Miller Rogen has also been in a bunch of Rogen's movies including Superbad, Sausage Party, and Zack and Miri Make a Porno. They don't have any children together but they do have an incredibly adorable dog.

Dan Aykroyd & Donna Dixon

Ghostbusters' star Dan Aykroyd married his Doctor Detroit costar, Donna Dixon in 1983. Since getting married, they shared the screen four more times including in The Couch Trip, Exit to Eden, and Twilight Zone: The Movie. There must be something in Canadian DNA because Aykroyd and Dixon have three children who are daughters, much like Reynolds and Lively, and Gosling and Mendes. And after 36 years, they remain married. Definite relationship goals.
