There's probably an esoterically worded study about this somewhere, but we don't need some eggheads to tell us why actors playing romantic interests often date each other, right? (Something about how acting like you like someone all day makes you actually like-like them, fake it 'til you make it, blah blah.)

So in accordance with the Theory of Costar Coupling, January Jones and Will Forte, leads on Fox's The Last Man on Earth, were meant to happen all along.

People reports the two are in fact dating, which, we hypothesize, might have something to do with the way Forte's character gazes at Jones's character longingly on the show. Like so (opens in new tab).

They've also gone on (fake) romantic dates:

Conclusion: The rumor's truthfulness is quite high, and they probably are a real-life couple. Q.E.D.
