Whoever said work and romance don't mix hasn't read US Weekly lately (or Forbes for that matter). Here, my picks for the hottest couples whose spark ignited on the job.

#6: Julia Roberts and Danny Moder

When Julia met cameraman Danny Moder on the set of The Mexican in 2000, we wondered just how far he was zooming in with that lens of his. The pair "nursed" each other through the breakups they were both going through, and a month after Moder's divorce was finalized, he and America's Sweetheart sealed the deal during a backyard barbecue.

#5: Will and Jada

When Jada Pinkett auditioned for the role of Will Smith's girlfriend on The Fresh Prince of Bel Air several years ago, producers turned her down because she was too short. Will, however, thought she was just right. Today the two are still chillin' out, maxin, relaxin' all cool, each with their own acting and music careers.

#4: Beyonce and Jay-Z

This high-performing couple met in the recording studio, and despite being crazy in love, Beyonce waited eight years until she let him put a ring on it. Talk about a power couple--the pair's combined worth is estimated to be a whopping $1 billion.

#3: Blake Lively and Penn Badgley

Cupid got these young loves in a chokehold on the set of Gossip Girl. Though they've been trying to keep the relationship under wraps, the occasional paparazzi smooch shot that pops up reassures us that we can keep on gossiping about their LUV AFFR.

#2: Brad and Angelina

On the set of Mr. & Mrs. Smith, Brad and Angie suddenly found that their love scenes didn't require much acting. The two laid low until Brad and Jen announced their separation, and it was baby-making mayhem thereafter for the world's most mystifying--and attractive--couple.

#1: Michelle and Barack

Twenty years ago while working at a law firm in Chicago, Michelle couldn't have guessed a hotshot smooth-talking intern would win her heart. (Um, why can't we find interns like that?) The brainiac couple has been challenging each other intellectually since. And you know what all that tension must do for the Lincoln bedroom....
