22 Times Actors Had A Crush On Their Costars, Who They Couldn’t Date In Real Life

It's no surprise that many celebrity relationships begin when the stars (in question) meet on set; after all, it's no different from anybody else meeting their crush at work. Filming movies and TV shows can be exhausting, requiring actors and actresses to fully immerse themselves in the characters that they’re portraying. This sometimes requires turning into a completely different person, both physically and mentally. So, of course, real-life emotions have arisen as a result of all of this throughout the years.
As it turns out, actors have celebrity crushes just like the rest of us, from Jennifer Aniston and David Schwimmer's mutual desire for one another while filming Friends to the Twilight actor who were head over heels for her on-screen romantic interest. Real-life romances may not have resulted from these crushes, but it's always entertaining to speculate about what may have been. Without further ado, here are 22 celebs who have openly admitted to having huge crushes on their costars.

#1 Emma Watson, star of the Harry Potter films, revealed in 2011 that Tom Felton was her "first infatuation", especially, during the first two films in the series.
