Despite only being six at the time, I still remember the pure scandal and drama that occurred in 2005 when it was revealed that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie had been having a sordid love affair on the set of Mr. & Mrs. Smith while the actor was still married to national sweetheart Jennifer Anniston.

It was a story that gripped the globe, and pretty soon after, we—I’m referring to both the film fanatics and hopeless romantics—all became completely obsessed and enamoured with the idea of two co-stars falling in love while in the midst of filming a romantic comedy. Any hint or glimmer of off-screen chemistry sent us all into a tizzy, trying to decipher whether or not there was any secret smooching going on when the cameras turned off.

So, is anyone surprised that netizens have now become truly convinced that actors Sydney Sweeney and Glen Powell are indeed our next pair of rom-com victims? Before we dive into the depths of whether or not this could actually be true, let’s first examine the evidence.

Now, Sweeney and Powell, or Poweeney, started filming their new movie Anyone But You in Australia in February 2023, and when pictures began emerging of the two young actors sightseeing and just generally frolicking about in the Aussie sun, people began noticing some serious sparks.

Firstly, TikTok detectives began noticing how naturally close the two were. They’d be holding one another and smiling together in pictures, clinging onto each other in between takes when they were filming in the ocean and overall just seeming like a pair of young insanely beautiful people who got along incredibly well—maybe too well.

And then, Poweeney made their official first promotional appearance together at the CinemaCon 2023. Posing together on the (grey) carpet, the two participated in a number of interviews which only further fired up suspicious gen Zers. Not only is it glaringly obvious from the video clips that Powell and the Euphoria actress admire one another greatly, there seems to be a comfortability and ease between them which just screams romance.

Now, some non-believers have claimed that the two are simply playing up to the cameras, seemingly in hopes to boost the buzz around their film. And while this isn’t a completely ridiculous notion—we’ve seen many other Hollywood co-stars do the exact same thing—a PR stunt just doesn’t seem to fully tie up all the loose ends.

Oh, and on top of all this, there have been multiple alleged reports that both Powell and Sweeney (who were both in serious long term relationships at the start of filming) have split from their respective partners.

As someone who’s spent the majority of their life invested in celebrity couples and on-screen romances, I hate to admit it, but I kind of hope this gossip is all based on actual facts. As sad as it is that this affair may’ve broken up two seemingly happy couples, no-one can convince me that Poweeney don’t have a pretty magical connection. The heart wants what the heart wants.
