RELATED: These 9 celebrity couples shared on-screen romance in films Their real-life 2006 breakup, however, may require them to keep things professional should Ventimiglia return for the show's Netflix limited revival, because Bledel wound up marrying another on-screen beau.
(More about that in a moment.) The following list of 11 resilient TV couples — still together as of press time, as far as we know — isn't comprehensive, as Melissa Benoist and Blake Jenner ("Glee"); Amanda Abbington and Martin Freeman ("Sherlock"); and Mary Elizabeth Ellis and Charlie Day ("It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia") can attest.
Talia Balsam and John Slattery ("Mad Men") On the show: Roger Sterling's wife Mona became his understandably exasperated ex-wife, but they did their best to keep things civil in times of trouble.
On Tuesday, the red-haired beauty revealed she's bisexual on Twitter.
One fan had flat-out asked the 18-year-old if she's interested in both men and women on the status-sharing site, and the actress simply responded: The exciting announcement was already pretty huge in itself, but it set social media ablaze because the admission came just one day after the teen shared a photo on Snapchat kissing female friend Bella Pendergast. The alum's relationship with her bestie is probably purely platonic, considering Miz Pendergast appears to have a boyfriend, and even used to date the celeb's brother, Remy.
But they are a reminder that, at least for now, Hollywood love stories are still possible after the director shouts "Cut! Alexis Bledel and Vincent Kartheiser ("Mad Men") On the show: Kartheiser's flawed Pete Campbell is married, but can't resist the charms of Beth Dawes (Bledel), who has troubles of her own.
In real life: With a courtship that began around the time Bledel showed up on the "Mad Men" set in 2012, the couple married in June 2014.
Slattery and Balsam were married in 1998 and, despite their characters' conflicts, seem anything but "Mad" off-camera.
