There’s a reason many companies have a no inter-office dating policy. A romance with your co-workers might be convenient but things can easily turn sour, leaving the work environment hostile–or worse, awkward. Luckily, the formerly romantic co-stars on this list didn’t seem to have that problem once they broke up, and if they did we sure couldn’t tell by the way they continued to play together on camera, especially when their characters continued to be romantically involved.
Nina Dobrev & Ian Somerhalder
After denying rumors of a romance, Vampire Diaries co-stars, and dysfunctional onscreen lovers, Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder came clean to being romantically involved in April 2011. The pair broke things off in May 2013 but portrayed a couple onscreen during season 5 of the show as doppelganger Elena Gilbert and vampire Damon Salvatore. Rumors began circulating that the two were back together in November 2013, but they pretty much denied it at the People’s Choice Awards during an awkward onstage speech in January 2013.
