Emma Stone & Ryan Gosling
Romantic comedies, period dramas, modern-day musicals – Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone can do it all! This acting duo has such an amazing dynamic that we can’t imagine a day when we’ll get bored of them.
They first caught our eye in the hilarious 2011’s rom-com Crazy, Stupid, Love. This movie, which also starred Steve Carell and Julianne Moore, featured several interacting storylines. They all came together perfectly in the end, but the endearing relationship between Emma and Ryan’s characters was everyone’s favorite part of the whole film.
The chemistry between Gosling and Stone was so powerful that it was just a matter of time before they teamed up again. They went on to play each other’s love interest in Gangster Squad. Then, they showed off their on-screen magic in the critically acclaimed musical La La Land.
The pair danced their way through the award season thanks to this smash hit. Emma Stone walked away with all the major awards that year, including an Oscar and a Golden Globe. This incredible love story left us wanting more, so we’re definitely hoping it’s not the end of Gosling’s and Stone’s journey.
Jennifer Lawrence & Bradley Cooper
Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence are another dream team that found their way to each other thanks to David O. Russell. They played the lead roles in his hit rom-com Silver Linings Playbook, a turning point for both of their careers.
Most people knew Cooper as the guy from The Hangover,but this movie gave him a chance to show off his acting chops. Afterward, Hollywood took him more seriously and he auditioned for more dramatic parts.
Lawrence was already one of Hollywood’s most sought-after young actresses at the time. For her, Silver Linings Playbook transformed her into an Oscar winner.
Only a year later, Cooper and Lawrence stared opposite each other in David O. Russell’s next movie, American Hustle, and later teamed up on the set of Serena (2014) and Joy (2015).
Cooper admitted they’re not keeping in touch, but that’s not hurting their friendship one bit.
“We don’t talk often, but when I showed up in Boston for Joy, then all of a sudden it was like we never stopped. We just started where we left off, and that’s rare. It’s just easy to look at her and feel like I’m telling the truth,” explained Cooper.
