Kate Winslet recently said that Leonardo DiCaprio is the love of her life. 

After starring in “Titanic” and “Revolutionary Road” together, we must say that it seems to be the case. Besides Winslet and DiCaprio, here are 7 other favorite on-screen loves.

Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore

They’re quirky, dorky and perfect together. Because Sandler and Barrymore have starred together in the “Wedding Singer,” “50 First Dates” and the new movie, “Blended,” it’s safe to say there are many people who love them together. As the song goes,  they seem to star in a movie together “Every Ten Years.”

Richard Gere and Julia Roberts

There’s never been better chemistry between a businessman and a prostitute (“Pretty Woman”) or a reporter and his “Runaway Bride.” Gere may seem a bit old for Roberts, but the couple still manages to win over the hearts of audiences.

Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan

We can’t ignore the “Queen” of romantic comedy and the charming Mr. Hanks. After “Sleepless in Seattle” and “You’ve Got Mail,” it was clear that these two were a perfect on-screen couple.

Okay, so this is almost too obvious but we can’t help it. The fact that they went on to date in real life even made this relationship more believable. This movie made Gosling the desire of every woman and McAdams…well, her consolation prize was him, right? It couldn’t have been all of those knock-off Nicholas Sparks romantic dramas she’s been doing.

Joaquin Phoenix and Reese Witherspoon

“Walk the Line” details the romance between Johnny and June Carter Cash. The actors swept audiences, and the Academy, off their feet with nominations for both stars, including a golden statue for Witherspoon.

Kate Hudson and Matthew McConaughey

These may not be the best acting roles, but they work very well together in terms of comedic chemistry. Obviously, “How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days” is not comparable to “Fool’s Gold,” but nevertheless the duo compliments each other.

James Stewart and Donna Reed

Because no list about love is complete without an appearance by Mary and George Bailey, Stewart and Reed must be included as well. He lassoed the moon for her and she kept him sane; isn’t that how all relationships should be?
