We watch movies, we love the actors and we love the chemistry between them. It is really exciting to hear that our favorite movie partners become the real-life partners. Sometimes the onscreen chemistry is so real that it spills over into the life as we know it, but it does not guarantee lasting success in the relationship. Check out the list:

Tom Cruise and Rebecca De Mornay – Risky Business
The young Tom Cruise reportedly had an intense affair with his co-star Rebecca De Mornay in Risky Business, according to Curtis Armstrong’s book ‘Revenge of the Nerd’. He wrote:
“It’s no secret that Tom engaged in an intense affair during the shooting with De Mornay. Returning late one night, I found three or four young girls — late teens, I suspect — lined up in the hall outside of Tom’s room. I remember thinking ‘Tom’s going to be really upset if these hot girls interfere with his Bible reading’. So I asked them, with all the stern gravitas of my 28 years, if there was something I could do to help them. They just stared at me and at that moment, Tom’s door opened and another girl came out adjusting her hair and taking off down the hall, while the first girl in line slipped into Tom’s room. This was a young man who knew something about time management and understood how to successful juggle Bible study with blow jobs”.
