Who cares how bad Green Lantern was? Without it, Blake and Ryan may have never met!
1.We all remember Green Lantern, right? Or, as Reynolds called it, "the darkest crease in the anus of the universe called Green Lantern."
2.Similarly, Adam Brody and Leighton Meester met on the set of The Oranges, an indie film that only made about $300,000 in the US and got a 31% on Rotten Tomatoes.
3.One of the most iconic couples of the 2000s, J.Lo and Ben Affleck, met on the set of their film Gigli. With a budget of $54 million and a domestic box office gross of around $6 million, Time called it one of the top 10 biggest flops in box office history. The film scored a whopping 6% on Rotten Tomatoes, with critics saying the two "lacked chemistry."
4.You know what also got a 6% on Rotten Tomatoes? The film Dream House, which starred Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz. It also failed to recoup its budget at the box office by almost $10 million.
5.Tori Spelling met current husband Dean McDermott on the Lifetime film Mind Over Murder. The TV movie was rated 3.9/10 stars on IMDb.
6. One of 2020's biggest new couples has been Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly. They met on the set of this year's film Midnight in the Switchgrass, which was panned upon release and has an 8% on Rotten Tomatoes. The film had a budget of $15 million and only made $229,000 at the box office.
7.Fantastic Four and its sequel, which starred Jessica Alba along with a pre-Captain America Chris Evans, didn't get great reviews at the time, and neither are looked back on very fondly in the post-MCU era.
8.The Fantastic Four series was rebooted in 2015 — and fared even worse than its predecessor, garnering only a 9% on Rotten Tomatoes.
9.Claire Danes and Hugh Dancy met on the set of their 2007 film Evening, which has a 27% on Rotten Tomatoes. While it had a modest budget, it only made around $20 million at the box office worldwide (which is lower than estimates I've found for its budget).
10.Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn first met on the set of the film The One and Only, Genuine, Original Family Band, in which Goldie had a bit part. The Disney musical received mostly bad reviews, which is probably why you've never heard of it.
12.Similarly, the 1994 film Pontiac Moon doesn't have a critic score on Rotten Tomatoes — but it does have an audience score of 43%, and it seems to have made only $10,000 at the box office. The New York Times also gave it a negative review.
13.And finally, this couple isn't still together, but I had to include it...Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner met on major flop Pearl Harbor...
