Celebrate Valentine’s Day With Real-Life Movie Sweethearts
Posted on February 14, 2016 at 8:00 am
I love to recommend romantic movies for Valentine’s Day. This year, how about some movies starring real-life movie sweethearts?
Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward made several films together, including “The Long, Hot Summer” and “Rachel Rachel” (he directed, she starred).
Spencer Tracy and Katherine Hepburn met on “Woman of the Year” and you can see them fall in love on screen.
Their last movie together was “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner.” This speech, filmed just before Tracy’s death, feels as though Tracy is speaking about his love for his co-star.
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie met on “Mr. and Mrs. Smith.”
Director Taylor Hackford met his wife, Helen Mirren, when they made “White Nights” together.
Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton had a passionate, tempestuous relationship, including two marriages and divorces, that was reflected in their films together.
