8 Couples That Had The Worst Onscreen Chemistry

Whether it is about real life or on-screen, chemistry can’t be faked. While couples like Allie and Noah from The Notebook had some undeniable chemistry on-screen, the actors could barely stand each other in real life. Yet, they managed to do their job sincerely. But these are the 8 couples who have portrayed the worst on-screen chemistry ever –

Nicole Kidman And Will Ferrell

Bewitched (2005)

The 2005 released film, Bewitched, failed right after its release because it lacked pretty much everything. While some guessed that it was a remake of the classic comedy series from the 60s, some thought it is a satire. As a result, the movie didn’t make up any mind and thus, Ferrell and Kidman got hardly got any opportunity to highlight their chemistry.

Zooey Deschanel And Mark Wahlberg

The Happening (2008)

When The Happening was released, viewers thought that the makers of the film don’t have any idea about how couples or in fact human beings talk and interact. As a result, Zooey Deschanel and Mark Wahlberg portrayed one of the worst romances Hollywood has ever seen. While their chemistry should have been the movie’s central point, the lifeless and deadpan relationship killed the couple’s vibe.

Cameron Diaz And Leonardo DiCaprio

Gangs of New York (2002)

While Martin Scorsese is known for depicting abusive relationships between people, the sweeping romance isn’t really his thing. With that said, in Gangs of New York Diaz’s Jenny and DiCaprio’s Amsterdam failed to light up the romantic angle together. The romance and chemistry between both the actors felt null and in no way genuine.

Jessica Alba And Dane Cook

Good Luck Chuck (2007)

Every woman in Good Luck Chuck who sleeps with Cook’s character falls in love immediately. However, Alba’s character breaks the curse or at least hopes to do so. Apparently, the chemistry they possessed made it hard to believe that they have any sort of love in between.

Jennifer Lopez And Ben Affleck

We all remember the time when Ben and Jennifer were the ultimate H-town couple. They both met on the sets of Gigli. While Ben Affleck played the role of a macho meathead, Jennifer Lopez portrayed a lesbian. As a result, it became quite obvious that these two people can’t fall in love. However, the chemistry between both of them didn’t make it easier to buy it anyway.

Angelina Jolie And Johnny Depp

The Tourist (2010)

Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie are two of the most talented, respected, and appealing actors on the globe. Then how come they failed to portray the required chemistry in The Tourist? Well, the film was quite shallow and while the production value looked nice from the outside, there wasn’t any emotion, heart, or humanity attached to it. Perhaps that is the reason it lacked portraying the romantic angle significantly.

Dakota Johnson And Jamie Dornan

Fifty Shades of Grey (2015)

Again, in the case of Fifty Shades of Grey, the actors weren’t responsible at all. While both Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson have delivered their individual parts prominently, there was not even a single opportunity available for them to make their relationship look believable. Even if Ingrid Bergman and Humphrey Bogart would have played in Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey, their relationship would have been looked more laughable than romantic.

Kristen Stewart And Robert Pattinson

Twilight (2008-12)
Twilight (2008-12)

It was perhaps expected and there isn’t any shock why such a poorly drafted romantic novel’s movie adaption failed to portray the chemistry between the lead actors. Somehow or the other, Twilight tried to convince that looking at someone’s eyes lustfully is all the love that is required. As a result, the romantic angle between Pattinson and Stewart looked absolutely absurd.
