One of our favourite on- and offscreen couples, Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder, have called it quits. The Vampire Diaries stars dated for over three years, and despite their breakup, they'll still be working together on set when the fifth season begins filming. Nina and Ian aren't the first TV co-stars to strike up a romantic relationship — small-screen duos like Rachel Bilson and Adam Brody, Blake Lively and Penn Badgley, and Vanessa Hudgens and Zac Efron also hooked up during their downtime, and leading ladies like Jennifer Garner, Emily VanCamp and Sophia Bush were lucky enough to find love on more than one set. Click through to see 30 couples that took their love off screen — and even worked together well past their demise.
Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner cheered on their daughter Seraphina as she crossed the finish line at her track meet on Sunday in Pacific Palisades. Along with her proud parents, Sera also had the support of older sister Violet, who helped her younger sister prep for her race by accompanying for her pre-run stretches. It was a loving afternoon for Jen and Ben, who showed PDA in the stands. Adding to the family fun, Ben also treated his daughters to a trip to the farmers market that day as well.
Seraphina is not the only one in the family to receive praise for her accomplishments. It was recently announced that Ben will receive an honorary doctorate from Brown University on May 26. It's the season for special recognition, as Ben's best friend Matt Damon just got an award last week from Harvard. Ben will also participate in Live Below the Line, where for one day he will consume less than $1.50 worth of food and drink.
Jennifer Garner, Ben Affleck and their daughters, Violet and Seraphina, had a family outing in LA on Saturday. Boston native Ben wore a Red Sox hat for a stop with his girls at Brentwood Country Mart, where he also showed PDA with his wife. He's been keeping his hometown in mind since the Boston Marathon bombings paralysed the town last week. Ben made his support known on his Twitter account, sharing, "Such a senseless and tragic day. My family and I send our love to our beloved and resilient Boston."
Although Ben and Jen were joined by the girls for the weekend stop, they were able to sneak in alone time together. The couple kicked off the weekend with a Friday night dinner date, and they also ran errands as a duo following Jen's 41st birthday last Wednesday.
Stars are lining up some fun new roles this week: Nicole Kidman has scored a cameo in one of Hollywood's most anticipated sequels, while Jessica Chastain and Benedict Cumberbatch are joining Emma Stone on Guillermo del Toro's next flick.

Ben Affleck helped his oldest daughter, Violet, out of his car in Santa Monica yesterday. Violet wore a pastel ensemble and carried a bag monogrammed with her name for the bright father-daughter stop. Ben is currently on dad duty with wife Jennifer Garner spending time in NYC. Although Jen left her family for a stay on the East Coast, she got in plenty of quality time with the kids recently. Earlier this week, she was the one helping Violet out of the car while out in LA, and Jen also shared brunch with all three of their children over the weekend.
Ben and Jen have been taking turns caring for their kids based on their busy schedules, and she recently addressed his highly criticised Oscar speech, in which he referred to their marriage as "work." Although critics were quick to paint his words in a negative light, Jennifer explained Ben's Oscars speech from her perspective in an interview with Britain's Telegraph, revealing, "I know Ben, I knew he meant it as the hugest, warmest compliment in the world. I think he was saying, 'Look, what we have is really real and I value it above all and I'm in it with you and I know you are in it with me.' That's the way I took it."
Ben Affleck planted a kiss on his wife Jennifer Garner while out in LA on Saturday. Ben and Jen showed the rare public display of affection as they took their two oldest children, Seraphina and Violet, to a food stand for a fun family outing. The couple, as well as their children, have been able to spend quality time together recently. Ben and Jen kicked off their weekend during a Starbucks stop with Sera on Friday and the whole gang got together for a trip to the park last weekend.
Along with dedicating her time to her family, Jen has had her fair share of solo outings lately as well. Jen sported a pair of sexy heels for a meeting on Friday and also joined a group of girlfriends for dinner at Giorgio Baldi last week.

We've got a message for all you brides-to-be — your makeup on the day doesn't have to be, well, bridal. It can be loud and proud with a punchy lip, but it can also be sexy and smouldering thanks to a well-applied smoky eye. The key to nailing a smoky eye on your big day is balance. If you're going to do it, be sure to pick a bridal pink (dusty, non-committal) lipstick. Or better yet, consider a nude gloss or matte lipstick. We need only look to the recent awards season to see the growing trend of celebeauties rocking sultry, click through to see our favourites.
