40 Celebrity Couples Whose Relationship Began as an Affair


From Affairs to True Love

When we fall in love, we often imagine a “forever” with the person, but it is rarely as simple as that. Often, other people get involved in the picture – causing many people to leave their partners as they pursue new love interests. Celebrities are not immune to these romantic desires either. For them, much like ‘ordinary’ people, sometimes it works out and sometimes it doesn’t. We’ve taken a look at some of the celebrity relationships that began as an affair, and we’ve got the scoop on how it all started.

Woody Allen and Soon-Yi Previn

Let’s start with a weird one. The celebrated director Woody Allen was in a relationship with the actress Mia Farrow when he met Soon Yi-Previn. How? Soon-Yi was Mia Farrow’s adopted daughter.

Woody Allen and Soon-Yi Previn

Soon-Yi claimed that Allen pursued her, and the couple went public in 1992 – making the headlines of numerous tabloids. The same year, in August, Woody Allen proclaimed his love for Previn. The two married in Venice in 1997, and they have remained together ever since.

Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott

While filming the Lifetime TV movie Mind over Murder in 2005, the two co-actors began a romantic affair the very first day. Both of them were married – Tori Spelling to Charlie Shahnaian, and Dean McDermott to actress Mary Jo Eustace.

However, Kelsey and Camille differed greatly in interests, and Kelsey moved on to Kayte. Kayte claims that she is “not proud” of how the relationship began, but it seems to have worked out, as they are still married after eight years.

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck

When it comes to critical acclaim or popularity, the movie Gigli was a total disaster. The action-comedy had a shockingly bad rating of 6% on Rotten Tomatoes, but the one thing that did come out of it was Ben Affleck and Jeniffer Lopez’s relationship.

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck

They met during the filming of Gigli when J.Lo was still married to Cris Judd. However, Affleck and Lopez’s lifestyles violently clashed with each other, and their romance was extremely short-lived. They did get engaged, but called off the wedding soon after in 2003.

Rupert Sanders and Kristen Stewart

The romance of the talented actors Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson was no secret in Hollywood. The two fell for each other during the making of the cult Twilight films. However, during the filming of Snow White and the Huntsman in 2012, Stewart and Sanders’ affair was caught on camera by paparazzi.

Rupert Sanders and Kristen Stewart

This led to Stewart and Pattinson splitting up, and also the divorce of Rupert Sanders from actress Liberty Ross. Sanders and Stewart dated for a short while until 2013, but they broke up eventually as well.

Debra Messing and Will Chase

Smash was a musical TV show that featured actress Debra Messing, whose character was having an affair on-screen. Surprisingly, at the same time, Messing herself was having an affair with co-actor Will Chase.

The actor Shia LaBeouf is known for his many eccentricities, including creating a film called Honey Boy, based on his own life, where he plays the role of his father. It was on the set of this film that he met the charismatic pop star FKA Twigs, who acted in the film as well.

Jerry Seinfeld and Jessica Sklar

The two married each other in 1999, and they have two sons and a daughter together. The relationship didn’t catch much interest in the tabloids though, as both Seinfeld and Sklar were tight-lipped about their affair. Jerry later said that the true story was not nearly as interesting.

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner

Remember back when Netflix wasn’t a thing, but superhero movies still were? It was then, in 2002, that Daredevil was released. Ben Affleck starred in the movie as Daredevil, and Jennifer Garner played the role of Elektra. During the filming of the movie, sparks flew between Affleck and Garner.

Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz

Movies often end up destroying the relationships of actors, and Dream House was responsible for two such cases.

At that time, Craig was married to Satsuki Mitchell, and Weisz was dating screenwriter Darren Aronofsky.

Billy Bob Thornton and Angelina Jolie

You can’t deny it – you’ve got to be a little bit crazy to break up with America’s sweetheart, Laura Dern. But that is exactly what Oscar-winning actor Billy Bob Thornton did. During the production of Pushing Tin, sparks flew between him and Angelina Jolie, while he was still engaged to Dern.

Billy Bob Thornton and Angelina Jolie

Thornton ghosted Laura Dern, and married Jolie in 2000, before breaking it off in 2003. They made the headlines quite a few times during their marriage, though, with them publicly exchanging underwear and wearing vials of each other’s blood around their necks.

Eddie Cibrian and LeAnn Rimes

Eddie divorced his then-wife, actress Brandi Glanville, and Rimes divorced Dean Sheremet. Neither Glanville nor Sheremet took the divorce well, and it fuelled newspaper headlines for months.

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie

Ah, Brangelina! Before their ill-fated divorce in 2016, they were one of the most talked-about couples in Hollywood. However, the chemistry between the two goes way back to the making of Mr. and Mrs. Smith. They played the roles of assassins who were married to each other in the movie, but they fell in love in real life too.

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie

The only problem was – Pitt was still with Jennifer Anniston, whom he had been with over five years. Anniston divorced Pitt shortly after the making of the film, and Pitt and Jolie became an item in 2005.

It was on the set of Stromboli that the celebrated actress Ingrid Bergman met the Italian director Roberto Rossellini. During filming, she became involved in a romantic relationship with the director while she was still married to the Swedish surgeon Petter Lindstrom.

Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton

Taylor divorced singer Eddie Fisher, and Burton divorced actress Sybil Williams, and they married each other. It didn’t have a fairy tale ending though, as their relationship remained passionately volatile throughout. They divorced and remarried throughout the years that followed, but eventually separated for the better.

Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz

The charismatic pop star Alicia Keys met her husband, hip-hop artist Swiss Beatz, back when they were teenagers.

Beatz was married to the singer Mashonda at the time, but they still went on with their romantic endeavors, and the two tied the knot in 2010 amidst a devastating divorce battle. They are still married with two children, Egypt and Genesis.

Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert

Country singer Blake Shelton said that he fell for fellow singer Miranda Lambert the moment they sang You’re the Reason God Made Oklahoma together at CMT’s 100 Greatest Duets Concert back in 2005. The only catch was that he was still married to Kaynette Williams.

Ryan Phillippe and Abbie Cornish

Witherspoon filed for divorce, and soon after, Phillippe and Cornish confirmed their relationship. The couple dated for three years before they split, and Cornish blames Phillippe’s “partying ways and wandering eye” for the failing relationship. Maybe she should have realized that once a cheat, always a cheat?

Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward

Not all love affairs are a success, and the story of Katherine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy couldn’t have been a better example.
