This snap appeared on Twitter over the weekend thanks to Zal Batmanglij who directed brilliant eco-thriller The East starring Ellen Page and Alexander Skarsgard. It sees the two actors dressed in matching denim outfits and looking tres cosy along with the caption, 'Canadian tuxedo party.' Ooh! So the world has gleaned that Ellen and Alex are dating. Why? Because frankly The Double Denim Never Lies. As we all know from pop culture history: matching double denim outfits is confirmation that a couple is dating. Like officially. See:

The tantalising twitpic has led us to think about other couples who met on set. Let's recap the top 5...
1) Brad Pitt And Angelina Jolie
Mr & Mrs Smith - the film was a bit pants
Aniston lovers look away now! We all know that Brangelina met on the much talked about (but little seen) Mr & Mrs Smith
2) Jennifer Garner And Ben Affleck
'You're my second favourite Jennifer'
We all knew and loved ‘Bennifer’ Mark One...
She's just Jenny From The Block, you know
But who knew that the ‘Jennifer’ who made up one half of ‘Bennifer’ would be 'Garner' not 'J-Lo'? (sorry, that sounded like a children’s poem). ‘Bennifer’ Mark Two may have met on the set of Pearl Harbour
3) Jennifer Aniston And Justin Theroux
Jen and Justin have that coversation about milking. Awks.
Jennifer was rumoured to be loved up with a number of co-stars including Vince Vaughn and Jake Gyllenhaal but the one that stuck was her co-star from
4) Woody Allen and Diane Keaton

In her book Then Again Diane Keaton revealed that she had a crush on Woody Allen before the two met and worked together on the theatre version of Play It Again, Sam. So it was no surprise when the two co-stars became a real life couple. Their relationship provided the inspiration for his film Annie Hall too (Diane’s mother’s name was ‘Hall’, fact fans).
5) Jason Segel and Linda Cardellini

The two got together during Judd Apatow’s legendary Freaks & Geeks series but didn’t stay together for too long. In fact, their break up inspired Jason’s screenplay for Forgetting Sarah Marshall.
