Breakups are pretty freaking difficult to deal with even if you don’t work together, but at least then you can just avoid the other person. However, if you work in the same office it becomes slightly more difficult but you can make it work, by just trying to avoid them in halls, leaving later or coming in to work earlier to avoid awkward elevator rides. But what happens when you’re celebrities who work on a show together?
1. Johnny Galecki and Kaley Cuoco
On the show, Penny and Leonard are so different yet they fall in love and even get married. But few people knew at the time that during the course of the show actors Johnny Galecki and Kaley Cuoco dated for two years before ultimately realising they’re not right for each other and breaking up. They still had to play love interests on the show and their characters did get married, but in real life, Johnny and Kaley just kept things professional on set and in real life remained friends.
2. Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev
These two have dated for three years during their time on Vampire Diaries, but Nina chose to leave the show two years after the breakup. Many thought that the reason was that it was just too hard working with an ex and pretending to be lovers on the screen. However, Nina says that her decision to leave had nothing to do with that. Plus, their relationship ended amicably, not because of anything scandalous or bad happening. And she did return for the finale to give us all closure in what looks like their characters Elena and Damon living happily ever after.
