We asked the BuzzFeed Community to tell us which actors had the best *and* worst onscreen chemistry in movies (to get a full picture of romantic relationships in film). Here's what they had to say: Warning: Potential spoilers ahead! 🚨 1. Awkward chemistry: Daniel Radcliffe and Bonnie Wright in the Harry Potter movies
"When I read the book, I read a lot of the paragraphs and quotes about their relationship over and over, and it was so pure and made me so happy. When I watched the movie, I was extremely disappointed with how poorly executed their chemistry was."
rowelakins Warner Bros. Pictures 2. Amazing chemistry: Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio in Titanic (1997)
"Their chemistry was undeniably good in
Titanic — whenever you saw both of them on screen, you believed in their love. Especially when Rose got off the lifeboat and Jack rushed to her and said how stupid she was for getting off the boat — from start to finish, their connection was just so real."
dannabaste14 Paramount Pictures 3. Awkward chemistry: Constance Wu and Henry Golding in Crazy Rich Asians (2018)
"The leads in
Crazy Rich Asians had zero chemistry, but to be fair to the actors, their characters weren't that fleshed out by the script. The supporting actors had better lines, and their relationships were more believable."
joannab14 Warner Bros. Pictures 4. Amazing chemistry: Jennifer Lopez and Jon Seda in Selena (1997) Warner Bros. Pictures
"I loved the chemistry between Jennifer Lopez and Jon Seda in
Selena. It was this beautiful friendship on screen that made you believe they truly were falling for each other. Playing real-life people is probably hard enough without needing to also portray their love story, but I always loved watching them on screen together."
calm4f5d10454 5. Awkward chemistry: Natalie Portman and Hayden Christensen in Star Wars: Attack of the Clones (2002)
"Anakin and Padmé had no chemistry together — Anakin was kind of creepy, and Padmé showed no interest in Anakin until the plot forced her to. These characters should have had a heartfelt (and ultimately) tragic love story — what we got instead was something bland and inorganic."
cor15 Lucasfilm 6. Amazing chemistry: Nicole Kidman and Ewan McGregor in Moulin Rouge! (2001)
"Ewan McGregor and Nicole Kidman in
Moulin Rouge!. I still have hope for these two all these years later!"
gabbywatson0708 20th Century Fox 7. Awkward chemistry: Leonardo DiCaprio and Carey Mulligan in The Great Gatsby (2013)
"This might be an unpopular opinion, but I think the chemistry between Leonardo DiCaprio and Carey Mulligan as Gatsby and Daisy in
The Great Gatsby ruined the movie for me."
"I prefer the Robert Redford and Mia Farrow version from 1974 over the 2013 version — there was absolutely no chemistry between Leo and Carey."
bloodandchocolate Warner Bros. Pictures 8. Amazing chemistry: Jodie Turner-Smith and Daniel Kaluuya in Queen & Slim (2019)
"Their chemistry was absolutely incredible, and made the film unforgettable."
deadcupcake02 Universal Pictures 9. Awkward chemistry: Robert Downey Jr. and Gwyneth Paltrow in every Marvel movie
"I have to say it: Robert Downey Jr. and Gwyneth Paltrow in all of the Marvel movies — never mind that Tony and Pepper weren’t a couple in the comics, the two actors were just awful together."
holly_gobiteme Marvel 10. Amazing chemistry: Saoirse Ronan and Timothée Chalamet in Little Women (2019)
"They did such an amazing job playing Jo and Laurie, showing how their friendship developed and how flirty they were with each other. The scene where Laurie confessed his love for Jo and asked her to marry him on that hill, and then when she turned him down, you could see the pain written all over Timothée’s face. They were perfection."
mikaelakempton Sony Pictures Releasing 11. Awkward chemistry: Yara Shahidi and Charles Melton in The Sun Is Also a Star (2019)
"There was much more passion in the book than the movie, and in the movie they added an extra day to the plot, so you'd think there'd be more room for the two actors to develop chemistry. The acting felt very awkward, even though they're both great actors in their own TV shows."
The Sun Is Also a Star in a day because I loved it so much — I initially didn't want to check out the movie, but after loving the book so much, I figured I’d give it a shot. The movie left me so, so disappointed — I honestly didn’t watch enough to know if Yara Shahidi and Charles Melton had chemistry, but based on what I saw, it was hard for me to believe Charles Melton could have good chemistry with anyone."
jadekoalas Warner Bros. Pictures 12. Amazing chemistry: Lana Condor and Noah Centineo in To All the Boys I've Loved Before (2018)
"Lana and Noah have such a beautiful friendship that many of us can only dream for, and the way they act together on and off screen is very couple-like. Everyone loved them in
TATBILB because their chemistry was so intense and well-displayed."
"The chemistry they had on and off camera led to a really good setup for this legendary movie. It would not have been the same without Lana Condor and Noah Centineo!"
camithy Netflix 13. Awkward chemistry: Emma Watson and Dan Stevens in Beauty and the Beast (2017)
"The movie was poorly thrown together in a lot of ways — bad singing, bad onscreen chemistry between Emma Watson and Dan Stevens, and a general stilted awkwardness. I couldn't find much that was redeeming, even though I generally am a big Emma Watson fan — it was cute for the kids, and that's about the only good thing I can say."
ohgreatanothercomment Disney 14. Amazing chemistry: Brendan Fraser and Rachel Weisz in The Mummy (1999)
"They played such a GOOD couple! They didn’t have a toxic relationship, they genuinely loved and respected each other, and it was just healthy and awesome to watch. I loved these two together."
nicmac Universal Pictures 15. Awkward chemistry: Mena Massoud and Naomi Scott in Aladdin (2019)
"I LOVE Mena Massoud, and I really enjoyed the live-action
Aladdin in general, but Abu and the magic carpet had more chemistry in that movie than Mena and Naomi Scott did."
ravenclawprefect1990 Disney 16. Amazing chemistry: Gina Rodriguez and LaKeith Stanfield in Someone Great (2019)
"Gina Rodriguez and LaKeith Stanfield had wonderful chemistry — as you watched their relationship play out, it felt very real, and you wanted their screen time to last longer.
Someone Great is centered around the friendship between the three female leads, but it's a rare movie where both the friendships and the love story were equally compelling, and that's because of the cast."
jennr4ab11fa64 Netflix 17. Awkward chemistry: Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew McConaughey in Failure to Launch (2006) Story continues
"Definitely Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew McConaughey in
Failure to Launch — it was cringeworthy watching them try to be in love."
"They did not seem like a believable couple at all."
gabby333 Paramount Pictures 18. Amazing chemistry: Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone in Crazy, Stupid, Love (2011)
"Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling in
Crazy, Stupid, Love — I truly believed that they were in love in that movie. Their first kiss was just 😍. Also, the fact that they went on to play a couple in two other movies just proves that their chemistry was amazing!"
nicolesue Warner Bros. Pictures 19. Awkward chemistry: Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard in Jurassic World (2015) Universal Pictures
"I think they’re both such talented actors, and maybe the direction just wasn’t there, but I didn’t buy their chemistry at ALL."
"That kiss between them felt so forced."
stella4star 20. Amazing chemistry: Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara in Carol (2015)
"Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara's characters in
Carol were practically dripping off the screen with chemistry — it’s what made the movie so damn good."
tamaraow StudioCanal / The Weinstein Company 21. Awkward chemistry: Jennifer Aniston and Vince Vaughn in The Break-Up (2006)
"They had such bad chemistry together — when they broke up, did they just go back to having a friendly relationship? It was awkward."
robertwooldridge Universal Pictures 22. Amazing chemistry: Tom Holland and Zendaya in Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019)
"Despite being absolute best friends in real life [now
romantically involved], they displayed their affections for each other extremely well on screen. Fans loved them together, and will only continue to ship them!"
"Tom Holland and Zendaya were pretty cute together in
Spider-Man — they portrayed the awkwardness in teenage relationships so well."
brianam15 Marvel 23. Awkward chemistry: Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis in Jupiter Ascending (2015)
"Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis had zero chemistry — I was shook when they kissed because it felt soooooo out of place, and it was very awkward."
mddexter7 Warner Bros. Pictures 24. Amazing chemistry: Issa Rae and Kumail Nanjiani in The Lovebirds (2020)
"I really thought Issa Rae and Kumail Nanjiani had incredible chemistry in
The Lovebirds, and after watching the film, that’s all I said to anyone. They felt like that couple you know are meant to be together because no one could communicate with them the way they communicated with each other."
gstaplesburton Netflix 25. Awkward chemistry: Reese Witherspoon and Luke Wilson in Legally Blonde (2001)
"Come to think of it, Reese Witherspoon and Luke Wilson didn't have that much chemistry together in
Legally Blonde. Granted, their romance wasn't really a huge plot point, and they only had a few scenes one on one, but I never felt they had anything special between them. Most of the time, it felt like he was just her understanding, level-headed supervisor, and they randomly ended up getting married."
colleend9 MGM 26. Amazing chemistry: Sanaa Lathan and Omar Epps in Love & Basketball (2000)
"Sanaa Latham and Omar Epps in
Love & Basketball should be at the top of this list."

New Line Cinema 27. Awkward chemistry: Steve Carell and Juliette Binoche in Dan in Real Life (2007)
"It was a great script, a great story, and had some really great moments, so I really wanted to love it — but Steve Carell and Juliette Binoche had NO chemistry. I was supposed to believe they met for one day, chatted for a few hours, and suddenly they were meant to be together? Sorry, but no."
tomkat41 Touchstone Pictures 28. Amazing chemistry: Josh O'Connor and Alec Secăreanu in God's Own Country (2017)
"They both spent time alone on a farm before shooting to create a real sense of isolation, and as the characters were getting to know each other, so were the actors. The loneliness you saw in the beginning was very genuine."
yosefa Picturehouse Entertainment 29. Awkward chemistry: Anne Hathaway and Anders Holm in The Intern (2015)
"I think the chemistry between couples in Nancy Meyers movies is one of the many things that makes her comedies so memorable (Dennis Quaid and Natasha Richardson in
The Parent Trap, Cameron Diaz and Jude Law in The Holiday, etc.). But, in The Intern, I thought Anders Holm was so miscast as Matt — I never felt like he was the right choice for Jules (Anne Hathaway's character). One of Nancy Meyers’ strengths as a writer and director is showing all the different layers of a relationship, and although Jules and Matt’s journey took many different turns, Anne and Anders’ lack of chemistry did a disservice to this important aspect of the movie."
mavmag Warner Bros. Pictures 30. And amazing chemistry: Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper in A Star Is Born (2018)
"As soon as Bradley Cooper saw Lady Gaga in the bar singing 'La Vie en Rose,' there was an instant connection. And after her performance, when he went backstage and he touched her face to take off her fake eyebrow, and saw how beautiful she was without any makeup on...they were just amazing together."
