Real-life Couples

Isn't it easier to shoot romantic scenes when two people are in a relationship in real life? It's more natural for them, there's no awkwardness, and the feelings are real. Problems are still a probability, though, since they can bring the problem to work. What do you think of real-life couples on set?

Yes, I guess. It could be better to have a romantic scene with your significant other, but then again, I wouldn't want to see them at work and at home. This is my personal opinion though, and I am not an actor :D

I agree that it would be much easier if they are a couple on real life, but imagine if they had a really bad fight the night before? LOL That would be so awkward!

Why does it seem like there'd be more trouble than advantages? That's how I see it, even though the feelings would be actual. These real-life couples may even add unnecessary pressure because of the expectations they have for each other.

Personally, I think it would be a little awkward. Taking directions from a director for something that comes naturally........I don't think I could do it.

I don't know; I've always thought that Nicole Kidman and Tom Cruise looked awkward together on film once they became an official couple. Other couples pull it off better.
