Think Rob Pattinson & Kristen Stewart Are The Highest Grossing Onscreen Couple In Hollywood? Think Again!

Posted Fri, January 7, 2011 4:43pm EDT

We all know Bella & Edward’s romance is hot, but it pales in comparison to these other big screen couples!

Robert Pattinson, 24, and Kristen Stewart, 20, have helped the Twilight films make a ton of money — but they’re not even close to being the highest-grossing onscreen couple of all time!

That honor goes to Harry Potter duo Rupert Grint, 22, and Emma Watson, 20, whose Ron and Hermione have anchored the seven films in the series to a staggering $6.3 billion worldwide. The final film, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2 will come out in summer 2011.

The list, compiled by Forbes, features couples that have appeared in at least two films together. Coming in at number two is Viggo Mortensen, 52, and Liv Tyler, 33, from the The Lord of the Rings movies, which grossed $3 billion. Pirates of the Caribbean lovebirds Orlando Bloom, 33, and Keira Knightley, 25, whose films netted $2.7 billion. No. 4 belongs to Leonardo DiCaprio, 36, and Kate Winslet, 35, whose romance in the massively popular Titanic buoyed their gross to $1.9 billion.

How did Bella and Edward fare? The Twilight movies have grossed $1.8 billion dollars so far, with two more sure-to-be-massive installments coming this year and next. We’re sure Twi-hards will come out in drove to support their favorite couple!

Orlando and Keira is the best couple. I haven’t felt anything about the other couples at all. The first Pirates I saw because I like the sea adventure movies but for the next Pirates I went to the movies to see those two actors on screen. Especially Orlando. He is an amazing actor and there is no way I’m watching that 4th parody at good taste called On Stranger Tides. My favorite characters are not in it and I don’t care about other personages. Imagine, taking RP and KS out of Twilight and making the movies about the other personages or, take Hermoine and her guy out of HP series and you will get the feeling that most Will and Elizabeth’s fans have while hearing the promotion for the On Stranger Tides. :( Even worse. Most of us are not coming to see it.

i’m sorry but whoever can say that robert and kristen show on screen chemistry is totally wrong. bella and edwards relationship is just so bland. slightly awkward and just not right… leo and kate’s screen romance is very sensual and very romantic so i would say them. rupert and emma’s on screen chemistry is something different, i guess it’s because their characters are denying that they have feelings for each other (until the fourth, sixth and seventh movies) but it’s very ‘gnnawww’ type of on screen chemistry really. it’s hard to say that ron and hermione’s relationship can top leo and kate’s chemistry as harry potter isn’t a romantic movie series as to titanic however i love both of them. in simplier words… rob and kristen suck on screen, leo and kate are just adorable and ron and hermione, anticipation until july for the awaited kiss!

hermione and ron are even couple yet and the audience is going crazy for that couple!!!it was building up for 10 years and now that is coming to its climax millions of people are going crazy…this is what i call a couple that it will remain in history not edward and bella…those two(edward and bella)are a common affair in a franchise but hermione and ron shows us that love does exist even when there is was and sorrow…and that glipse of love is what wins eventually…this was one of the main themes of harry potter(the most epic series of our times)and even though the harry potter series didn’t invest much in love at the end j.k rowling showed us that love is the lethal weapon we need to overcome uor fears and win the evil!!!!hermione and ron are the best and the most epic couple the world ever seen!
p.s :sorry for my english!

In Deathly Hallows part 1, Rupert and Emma don’t even kiss or say “I love you”, but we can feel the love EVERYTIME! I think that is the biggest proof of their chemistry!

rupert and emma showed more chemistry in the last film than rob and kristen do in all of the twilight movies so far. And the most physical interaction they had was a hug! That speaks volumes. Especially considering that rob and kristen are dating in real life? Yet their on screen chemistry is about as exciting as a spoon?

Emma/Rupert. There is no competition. I don’t even know why Kristen/Robert are up there; if “chemistry” is what Bella/Edward’s relationship is supposed to be … well, the book doesn’t do it well either, it’s not the actors’ faults.

RUPERT AND EMMA! I think they have so much chemistry. In the movies, they don’t have that many romantic scenes but I am really excited for HP and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 because they are going to have a lot of moments and are finally going to have the kiss

I think the on screen couples who deserve to have such recognition, are whom whose relationship is the major storyline of the movie and obviously, has to be the one that draw people to watch, the biggest draw of all the elements which a movie has, which people care the most, that they become unexpendable, such as Rob-Kristen in Twilight and Leo-Kate in Titanic. Honestly, i don’t think most of the viewers go to see Harry Potter because they are so invested in Ron and Hermionne story, same as Keira and Orlando in POTC, and Liv-Viggo in LOTR.

uhm.

but there’s a difference between relationships that are ridiculous and relationships that are substantial. the ron and hermione romance is ten times more powerful than the romance between bella and edward. romione will last a lifetime, bella and edward will fade away into non-existence.
