Lea Michele has stood by her boyfriend Cory Monteith since he voluntarily entered rehab at the end of March, and now that he’s completed his one month stay, the couple seems happier than ever. Their well-being as a duo is especially important, considering they co-star on the show Glee, which just got picked up for a fourth season.
While it’s always been common for movie co-stars to form a romantic relationship off-screen (a la Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie) after filming wraps up, it’s a bit harder for TV stars who spend a lot more time together, but recently, the number of real life TV couples is higher than ever!
Click through the gallery to see what other current couples met as TV co-stars.
