Actors and actresses — who often spend days, months or sometimes years working together on set — often turn into real-life couples off-screen. These things happen in Hollywood all the time. That being said, some of these relationships might seem a bit weird from a fan's perspective. Imagine how awkward it is for fans when two actors whom they are used to seeing as on-screen siblings start dating off-screen.

Over the years there have been quite a few instances where on-screen siblings went on to date each other. Some of them even went on to marry each other. Let's take a look at the actors who dated their on-screen brother or sister:

6. Michael C. Hall And Jennifer Carpenter
