GALLERY >> Actress + Director Couples

Whilst we would never condone adultery - Kristen Stewart and Rupert Sanders, we mean you - we can sort of understand why actreses would fall for their directors. You're working long hours on set, closely together night after night. And, let's face it, the power thing is a total turn on. Just ask these leading ladies...

Helena Bonham Carter & Tim Burton

The famously eccentric couple (the ones who live in separate houses) met no set on Planet of the Apes in 2001. Since then, Helena has acted in every one of the quirky director’s films since, most famously as the Red Queen in Alice in Wonderland and this year’s brilliant Dark Shadows.

Diane Keaton & Woody Allen

Director Woody fell in love with Diane – who appeared in more of his films than any other actress – in 1970, after he cast her in his Broadway show, Play It Again, Sam. She subsequently starred in the film version two years later, then Annie Hall and Manhattan. Their relationship only lasted a year but the two are still great friends.

Kate Beckinsale & Len Wiseman

It was a whirlwind of emotion between these two while making Underworld in 2003. The lovebirds married a year later in California and have since made three more Underworld flicks together and the upcoming remake of Total Recall with Jessica Biel and Colin Firth, out later this year.

Leslie Mann & Judd Apatow

Producer/Director Judd, famous for Knocked Up, Bridesmaids and Superbad, met Leslie onset of The Cable Guy, which he produced, in 1996. They have two daughters and she’s since starred in his films, The 40-Year-Old Virgin and Knocked Up. In Knocked Up her she was married to Paul Rudd and tehir characters feature in Apatow’s comedy, This Is 40, out this year.

Milla Jovovich & Paul W. S. Anderson

Russian beauty Milla met her director husband Paul on set of his film, Resident Evil in 2002. 10 years later, they've been married for three years and have a daughter named Ever. Aww. A string of Resident Evil films have been made since, starring Mill and with Paul on the producing helm.
