'True Blood' star Alexander Skarsgard and blonde beauty Kate Bosworth are a new couple we can get behind. You know, if there were, like, elections for "hottest celebrity couple" or "celebrity couple we think seem pretty cool together." The actors reportedly met on the set of their upcoming movie, 'Straw Dogs,' and were seen "canoodling" at the Spike TV Scream Awards this past weekend, reports Radar Online. 'True Blood' star Alexander Skarsgard and blonde beauty Kate Bosworth are a new couple we can get behind. You know, if there were, like, elections for "hottest celebrity couple" or "celebrity couple we think seem pretty cool together." The actors reportedly met on the set of their upcoming movie, 'Straw Dogs,' and were seen "canoodling" at the Spike TV Scream Awards this past weekend, reports Radar Online.

We consider ourselves experts on the ever-changing landscape of celebrity couplings -- and uncouplings! -- but this one caught us off guard. Last we heard, Erik the sexy vampire sheriff (that'd be Skarsgard) was possibly hooking up off screen with 'True Blood' guest star Evan Rachel Wood, which wouldn't have surprised us, and Bosworth had a steady beau, model James Rousseau (Keira Knightley's ex, by the way -- see, we told you we were experts on the topic of celebrity couples).

But we all know what happens on movie sets, right? Or at least we think we do, based on the rumors, reports and confirmations of actors who embark on romances with their co-stars. Skarsgard and Bosworth are just carrying on the proud tradition of beautiful people dating the other beautiful people they work with on movies or TV shows.

We recognize that it's not only actors who have work romances -- they sure do seem to have them a lot, though. (We are fairly certain, however, that stars are the only people who ever engage in "canoodling"). What do you think -- Alexander Skarsgard and Kate Bosworth as a couple: yes or no?

Hottest On-Set Hookups

    Actors are always insisting that love scenes are anything but romantic to make, what with crew guys standing around scratching themselves, lighting delays and such -- but history and the tabloids have proven that on-set intimacy can lead to very real romance. Moviefone counts down the 25 hottest on-set hookups ever. -- By Marilyn Beck and Stacy Jenel Smith with Stephanie DuBois and Emily Feimster

    25. Angelina Jolie and Billy Bob Thornton

    'Pushing Tin' (1999)

    While Laura Dern was standing by her man, Billy Bob, he was lying by his co-star, Angelina. Wild about each other, the couple ran off for a surprise marriage, breaking the unsuspecting Dern's heart. They expressed their eccentric love by wearing vials of each other's blood around their necks. Not shockingly, they split in 2003.

    20. Warren Beatty and Madonna

    'Dick Tracy' (1990)

    When Beatty, an actor notorious for mixing on-set business with pleasure, cast the 21-years-younger pop star as comic-book bad girl Breathless Mahoney, was he casting her for himself as well? Regardless, neither the movie nor the mismatched romance fared well, and Beatty came off as a bore in her 'Truth or Dare' doc a year later.
