Everyone knows dating a coworker is a terrible idea. What if it ends badly? Seeing them every single day isn’t going to make it easier to move on. Regardless of the fact, celebrities are infamous for dating their co-stars anyway. In a regular job, there’s always the option of quitting, but if you’re the two leads in a multi-million dollar movie franchise, that’s not realistic. But it isn’t only actors who date their co-workers. World famous musicians have a tendency to get romantically involved with their backup dancers.
