Here's What Our Favorite On-Screen Couples Looked Like Back In The Day Vs. Now

Time really has flown by!

How many times have we fallen in love with couples on both the big screen and the small screen? Romance brewing between two beautiful people was hard NOT to be enamored by. Who can forget their chemistry and how we wanted to watch their love grow deeper and fonder for each other? Like the time Chandler proposed to Monica (or should we say, the other way around?) or when Maverick Mitchell began singing at a bar in the hopes of winning over Charlie Blackwood.

Brightside put together a list of TV & Movie couples we all adored from the 1980s through the 2000s and how they look in more recent years. We're still in love with Chandler and Monica. Who doesn't find Catherina Zeta-Jones and Antonio Banderas still so sexy!? John Stamos and Lori Loughlin as Jesse and Becky were oh-so-adorable in Full House. Some of these actors sure have aged like fine wine!  Which couple had the best on-screen chemistry? Let's have a look!
