10 Real-Life Romances That Make Us Feel Kinda Icky

    Some off-screen romances seem meant to be. Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis? Totally. Brangelina? But of course. Lea Michele and Matthew Morrison, who play student and teacher? Um, awkward.

    Michele's new book, Brunette Ambition, reveals that she dated her Glee costar "for a Broadway beat" before they played Rachel Berry and Mr. Schue on the hit series. Kind of casts that scene where Mr. Schue sang "Don't Stand So Close To Me" to his doting pupil in a new light, no? (Don't blame Lea for selling the fans so hard on Rachel Berry!)

    Michele and Morrison aren't the first costars to make a love connection despite having slightly creepy onscreen relationships. Teachers and students, babysitters and charges, mom and son, father and daughter, and brother and sister...things are about to get weird, y'all. (Unless you're a Game of Thrones fan, in which this will all seem completely normal.)

    Warning: Though the real-life people involved can't help it, clicking through this selection of real-life romances may ruin some of your favorite films and TV shows. Read at your own risk.
