So here are the qualifications. The pairs below are either in a CONFIRMED RELATIONSHIP WHERE THEY ARE MEANT TO BE ONLY WITH ONE ANOTHER, or these characters have CONFIRMED PLUTANIC RELATIONS WITH ONE ANOTHER. There is nothing here for those characters that have sexual tension but nothing coming of it. These pairs need to either be couples not afraid to hold hands or couples who are ready to steam up the hotel room before vanishing into the night.

Cinderella (2015)

We are starting off nice and kid friendly her. The family appropriate way.

This movie also is the one that inspired me to make this list.

Quintessential Disney prince and princess right here. Richard Madden as Kit and Lily James as Ella is really unfair aspirations for anyone. James is just adorable as all hell playing the “oh shucks” vibe and Madden has the smile that’s h (2005)otter than a blacksmith’s furnace.

Mr. and Mrs. Smith (2005)

The start of Brangelina. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie dominate the screen and the chemistry and banter they have in Mr. And Mrs. Smith is what to aspire towards. What a mind-warp that this movie came out in 2005 but as soon as I turned on the trailer to refresh myself, I remembered it and the style of it immediately.

Titanic (1997)


I have not seen Titanic in its entirety. It is bad. I know. BUT, I can still resonate with the fact that Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet are amazing people and their romance was the fuel for so many steamy car moments. This couple set the standard for many in the early 2000s and I understand it is a founding block for many people’s romantic awakenings.

The Wolf On Wall Street (2013)

High, my name is Margot Robbie and I am going to come out of nowhere and completely transfix America. Pair her up with Leo and you have yourself a truly lethal combo. It can be said that their relationship is the worst of the bunch here in terms of actually being healthy, with that being said, this is a movie.

It should be noted that we have back-to-back Leo selections. I tried to avoid it, really I did, but there is a reason he is Leonardo DiCaprio.

Casino Royale (2006)

Eva Green is so sexy. Daniel Craig is so handsome. When Bond and Vesper Lynd meet on the train, the seductive venom the pair spit at one another is like a toxin. Everything about this pair is what sass in relationships should strive to be.

I think it also has to be said that Eva Green is one of the sexiest and most underrated beautiful women alive. She was awesome in Showtime’s Penny Dreadful. She was hot as hell in Frank Miller’s Sin City: A Dame To Kill For (2014). And in all seriousness, the intimate scene in 300: Rise Of An Empire (2014) is the only memorable part of that movie.

I stand for Eva Green.

Basic Instinct (1992)

Was there a doubt that this was going to make the list? Basic Instinct may have the most sexual tension of any movie I have ever seen. Sharon Stone as Catherine Tramell is the poster girl for the terrifying and tantalizing Venn diagram. She has Nick Curran (Michael Douglas) and the audience spinning in circles and trying to hide their sometimes-shameful arousal over the course of the taught thriller.

Under the fun facts of Basic Instinct on IMDB is that there were no body doubles used during any of the sex scenes. Color me not surprised.

Witness (1985)

Is Witness peak Harrison Ford? It might be, we need to have the debate.

Ford is John Book, a cop who goes into Amish country to protect a child and ends up falling in love with an Amish woman, Rachel (Kelly McGillis). Despite the fact that Ford is a handsome devil, McGillis brings her own fire to the passion, but it comes mainly in her subtle and subduedness. It is the idea of innocence and breaking away from that.

This is also the first rated R movie I watched with my parents and was first nudity I ever saw with them in a movie, so that is a memory.

Black Swan (2010)

The sex scene between the characters of Nina Sayers (Natalie Portman) and Lily (Mila Kunis) changed my life in high school. I genuinely did not know you could do that in movies.

Also, there were so many smokey, smoldering eyes in Black Swan, and that may have spurned me enjoying that look, in particular when Taylor Swift does it.

Crazy, Stupid, Love (2011)

Just a beautiful cast. Steve Carell molding into his more attractive older self, Ryan Gosling in his chiseled glory, Emma Stone and her magnetic charm and Julianne Moore in her refine rough elegance. Every in Crazy, Stupid, Love could be on this list.

However, we have to go with Jacob (Ryan Gosling) and Hannah (Emma Stone).

You have Gosling looking like Zeus and Stone being all beautiful and wet. They both look good in casual clothes or when they doll up.

A member of the honorable mentions is La La Land (2016) where they are more elegant and soulful with their beauty, but Crazy, Stupid, Love set the bar and is the more well known for their connection.

The Mask Of Zorro (1998)


If you have not seen The Mask Of Zorro (1998) then you are missing out on a rollicking family action adventure. Also, you are missing out on Catherine Zeta-Jones being STUNNING and Antonio Banderas evolving into a badass vigilante.

The dance scene above is a example of their chemistry with one another, and also proof that the unique mustache of Zorro (Antonio Banderas) works.

We also can not forget the scene where Zorro disrobes Elena (Catherine Zeta-Jones) with his sword (no get you mind out of the gutter) and only the hair of Zeta-Jones is covering her breasts. Yea I remember that scene fondly.
