Update: Thanks to the many readers who let us know that an actual list of Top Five Movie Couples released on BBC Radio One by host James King making mention of Ron (Rupert Grint) and Hermione (Emma Watson) should read as follows:

      5. Jennifer Lopez and George Clooney in "Out of Sight"
      4. Emma Watson and Rupert Grint in "Harry Potter"
      3. Julia Roberts and Richard Gere in "Pretty Woman"
      2. Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford in "Star Wars"
      1. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt in "Mr and Mrs Smith"

 An earlier list was apparently "a joke list" as seen below.

5.  Lady and the Tramp
4.  Harry and Lloyd (Dumb & Dumber)
3.  Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie
2.  Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger
1.  Xena Warrior Princess and Gabrielle
Thanks to Mhaey, Ivana at ICM, the BBC, and scores of others for mailing!

Hmmm that is the craziest top 5 of anything I’ve seen! As Kalin points out though, the above list is not the actual top 5. The top 5 is a little more sensible that still includes Hermione/Ron.

Its a great subject to ponder over though. I think my top 5 on first thoughts will be:

5. Jim Carey and Kate Winslet in Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
4. Anthony Hopkins and Debra Winger in Shadowlands
5. Anthony Hopkins and Emma Thompson in Remains of the Day
2. Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher in um..forgot the name of the movie
1. Kermit the Frog & Miss Piggy , LOL. Oh alright, non puppet no.1:

1. Clark Gable and Scarlet O Hara in Gone with the Wind!

Oh and a close runner up has to be Christopher Reeves and Margot Kidder in Superman. Oh and then there is Doris Day and Rock Hudson in Pillow Talk, Katherine Hepburn and Cary Grant in Bringing up Baby. Humphrey Boggart and Katherine Hepburn in African Queen. Damn too many now!

Ron Hermione and Harry are still a TRIO and not a couple in my mind so far in terms of the movies. Bookwise Ron/Hermione, no.1 all the way, baby!

I love it! Yeah, the ones in the post are just a jokey top 5 before the real one was read out. I was a bit worried when I heard the first bit of the show as I thought maybe R/Hr might not be in the real list, but it’s superb that they are in both!

Awesome, but I admit that I LOL’ed at Xena and Gabrielle. You want to talk about chemistry without an on-screen kiss? ;)

Harry and Lloyd? Xena and Gabrielle? Since when did they actually become couples? I mean yeah, the chemistry was there for Xena but Dumb and Dumber? I must have totally missed that.
Still, it’s cool that they made the list. Even if the others are the last couples I would have thought of (where are Kate and Leo for Titanic/Revolutionary Road???).

Okay, I am way out of it, or maybe I was in college (not much TV watching) who is Xena? Great job by Emma and Rupert!
