The on-screen steamy chemistry that we see, isn’t necessarily the real thing. Movie stars fool the audience into believing something that’s not true and something that they are not. There are movie couples who make budding romance feel authentic and real. The case, however, is quite different from what it looks like.

From requesting their co-stars to be moved from the set, to shouting on their on-screen matches, it has all happened. When the camera stops rolling, these 12 couples couldn’t stop arguing.
