Dating your co-star can be fun as you get to spend more and more time together. However, it is is hard to work with your ex (who is also a co-star) especially when you are in the industry. While some couples say No on the face and do not work together after breakup, there are a few who have bonded on-screen and worked even after parting ways.
The classic example is "Vampire Diaries" couple, Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev. After dating for 3 years, the Vampire Diaries couple who kept their love life public called it an end in 2013. however, the couple are working together for the 5th season of Vampire Diaries.
Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson are another co-stars who made news for their romance and break up as well. However, the stars had to work in Twilight series post break up. So whatever be the reason behind the break up, some stars have to move on but still work with each other on-screen. It might be hard but work is work after all.
The worst scenario was for Jennifer Garner who dated Michael Vartan while working in Alias. Romance brewed for one year and then ended as well. Garner married Ben Affleck and was pregnant with their first child. However, she had to shoot a wedding scene with Vartan in the series.
Here is a list of stars who worked together post break up and entertained us despite personal issues.
