There are certain things you just can't fake — sexual chemistry is one of them.

We've seen plenty of films with couples who are about as believable as Santa Clause. In other words, nonexistent.

Then, there are the on-screen couples brimming with so much chemistry, you're convinced that they're together in real life.

Here are 19 such examples. Someone crack a window because it is hot in here!

Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson - 'The Conjuring'

Vulture | New Line Cinema

You can't tell us this wasn't actually a love story! Part of what makes the horror flick so good is how the actors really seemed like a married couple. The realness of this helped make those exorcism scenes seem even more real — and scarier.

Anjelica Huston and Raul Julia - 'The Addams Family'

Collectors | Paramount

"They were such a healthy couple in an era where the 'dysfunctional family' trope was becoming more popular and I feel like a lot of people overlooked how good of a relationship they really had because they were 'weird.'" - u/MiniatureWendigo

Julia Stiles and Heath Ledger in '10 Things I Hate About You'


The chemistry was undeniable between them! One Redditor's dad encountered them at a local burger shop when they were filming the film. They said that they acted really close off-camera, which isn't surprising in the least.

Matthew McConaughey and Kate Hudson - 'How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days'

Plugged In | Paramount

"They had such a playfulness/flirty chemistry in How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days. It looks like they had a lot of fun making that movie." - u/megmor

Brendan Fraser and Rachel Weisz - 'The Mummy'


The pair complemented each other so well in the thriller-action movie. There was instant chemistry between them that even kids could pick up on.

Keira Knightley and Matthew Macfadyen in 'Pride and Prejudice'

USE Today | Universal

"There's only one right answer. Every time they're onscreen together, it's so full of chemistry, it might explode. Their dances, their fights, their looks of longing...the scene where they're standing in the pavilion in the rain is pure sexual tension. I’ve never seen two actors have chemistry like that." - rebeccakate13

Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper in 'A Star Is Born'


Many people believed they were actually dating because of their chemistry in the film. They had perfect harmony — both musically and otherwise.

Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling in 'Crazy, Stupid, Love'

Georgia Straight | Paramount

"There's a reason they've been romantic leads in multiple films together. They're on fire in literally anything together!" - dianah423074c8e

Nicole Kidman and Hugh Jackman in 'Australia'

Roger Rebert | GWTW

They would be a perfect pair, considering they're both from Australia! There's an adorable scene at the end where they reunite. You really think they're in love because of their electric chemistry.

Julia Roberts and Richard Gere in 'Pretty Woman'

Pretty Woman

"They had natural chemistry. Go watch the scene where he shows her the necklace and closes the box on her fingers — it was meant to be a blooper, but they were so cute that they left it in the movie!" - lizlunavae

Sandra Bullock and Bill Pullman in 'While You Were Sleeping'

Bustle | Lionsgate

Thanks to the sexual chemistry between them, you were rooting for them to be together from the start. And since Pullman rarely plays characters who get the girl in the end, it made their relationship even more special.

Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio in 'Titanic'


"It's a classic, and their chemistry is undeniably good. Whenever you see the both of them onscreen, you believe in their love. Especially when Rose got off the lifeboat and Jack rushed to her and said how stupid she was for getting off the boat. I was like, 'Oh, this is real.' From start to finish, their connection was just so genuine." - dannabaste14

Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper in 'Silver Linings Playbook'

Slant Magazine | Paramount

Like many other Hollywood pairings — Richard Gere and Julia Roberts, Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan, and Kate Hudson and Matthew Mcconaughey — we can understand why these two are always in films together. They light up the screen in this film!

Karen Allen and Harrison Ford in 'Raiders of the Lost Ark'

Raiders of the Lost Ark
Giphy | Indiana Jones

"Their love/hate relationship was so authentic, and you could easily imagine how passionate their relationship must have been all those years ago. Indy’s romantic entanglements in the other films couldn’t hold a candle to Marion." - clothildedauphin

Sandra Bullock and Keanu Reeves in 'Speed'

Screen slate | Paramount

An impending bomb wasn't the only tension in the film! There was also some insane heat brewing between these two. They even later admitted to having a crush on one another.

Keira Knightley and Orlando Bloom in the 'Pirates of the Caribbean' series

Disney | Disney

"How...HOW...could no one name these two? I know it's a Disney movie, but their chemistry was INCREDIBLE." - nakshkhapekar

Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford during the entire 'Star Wars' franchise

star wars

This one's pretty obvious, considering both actors admitted to having an affair while Ford was married. It just goes to show that their insane sexual chemistry wasn't all in our heads.

Claire Danes and Leonardo DiCaprio in 'Romeo + Juliet'


"They deserve an Academy Award, simply because they managed to act so believably as teens in love, even though they hated each other in real life!" - Annariina Hietanen

Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer in 'The Sound of Music'

Giphy | TIFF

Given how old the iconic film is, you could say that the two practically invented sexual chemistry. It was busting at the seams time and time again, like the time they danced the Laendler.
