Happy Labor Day! At our house, this three-day weekend signals the end of summer, the beginning of the school year, and the last push to get stuff done before winter. Sometimes we take a little trip; sometimes we just stay home. This year was a just-stay-home year. I really wasn't in a mood or position to go anywhere. We mostly just stayed home this weekend, but today we roused ourselves to go see the movie Hit and Run. It stars real life couple Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard.
They are cute together. In some scenes, I could imagine that they were just hanging out, driving around and having a conversation. The movie itself was kind of goofy (what was going on with all those naked people in that motel room?!), but it was entertaining and I think we all mostly liked it.
Bradley Cooper did not look good.
Anyway...watching Dax and Kristen made me think of other real life couples who made movies together. I know there are a lot, but I couldn't think of a single one. Thank God for Google. There are many, many examples, but I only chose a few.
Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield
Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck
Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt
Annette Bening and Warren Beatty
Remember the movie Bugsy? I thought Annette was beautiful in that picture, and apparently, Warren did too because they got married and I think they are still together. I like Annette's short hair.
Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins
Joanne Woodward and Paul Newman
Like I said, I know there are many other real life couples that shared the silver screen. Who are your favorites?
