Dreaming of marrying your celebrity crush is normal. Most people scoff at people who proclaim that they’re going to marry Justin Bieber/Wizkid/whichever cute guy is famous right now, and I don’t think that’s fair. If a person truly believes that they will marry their celebrity crush, who are we to tell them different?
It’s not always the fans who pursue their celebrity crushes. Sometimes, it’s the other way around because let me tell you something: some of these fans are ridiculously attractive. Don’t lose hope, celebs are just like us. They fall in love during the times when they least expect it, so just go with the flow and always be in strategic places!
These 10 fans surely hit the jackpot with their spouses— well, most of them…
Jessica Alba (Cash Warren)
Jessica Alba and Cash Warren are always so cute together when they’re out and about. Cash is a pretty low-profile guy, but he posts a lot of cute pictures of his family on Instagram.
Jessica and Cash met in 2004 on the set of “Fantastic Four”, wherein Jessica played the role of Sue Storm/Invisible Woman and Cash played the role of…production assistant. That’s right, despite being the son of actor, Michael Warren, Cash is a more private type of man. Jessica and Cash got married in 2008 and have two lovely daughters together that look like miniature versions of Jessica.
Well, guys, you should take notes from Cash. He definitely knows how to make the most beautiful girl in Hollywood swoon.
John Travolta (Kelly Preston)
These two seem to get a lot of flack for being involved with the Church of Scientology. However, many people don’t know that they’re one of the most solid Hollywood couples in existence. Married for about 23 years, John Travolta and Kelly Preston have braved their way through many obstacles, including the death of their son, Jett, in 2009.
John and Kelly met in 1987 while filming “The Experts”. John was immediately smitten with Kelly, but he couldn’t make a move because she was married to someone else at that time. After her first marriage ended, Kelly dated various actors like George Clooney and Charlie Sheen.
In 1990, John and Kelly met again by chance in Vancouver and started dating. John didn’t waste any time and proposed to Kelly just 6 months later. Kelly has said that John “always said he waited” for her, and that when she was 16, she wanted to marry him after watching “Grease”.
Chris Martin (Gwyneth Paltrow)
Being the daughter of Hollywood figures Blythe Danner and Bruce Paltrow, you wouldn’t picture Gwyneth as someone who gushed about a lead singer from a band. But she had been a long-time fan of Chris Martin and his band, Coldplay. Gwyneth met Chris backstage at one of his shows in 2002. She was nervous to meet him at first, but ended up snagging the British crooner and was married to him for 10 years.
During the time they met, Gwyneth’s father had just passed away. To help her cope, Chris wrote the song “Fix You” for her.
They surely have a lovely backstory to their whole relationship, but am I the only one who cringed when she called their divorce a “conscious uncoupling”? Did their marital troubles turn Gwyneth into a hipster?
Nicolas Cage (Alice Kim)
Nic Cage is mocked by numerous people due to his antics, but I think he’s just a misunderstood evil genius that doesn’t have the proper medium for his creativity. That being said, the backstory of his relationship with his wife Kim seems indicative that he’s a good man.
Alice was a waitress in Los Angeles when she met Nic in 2004. People gave them a lot of heat because of the fact that she was “just a waitress” and he was Hollywood royalty. They both got the last laugh when they tied the knot later that year. Shotgun wedding? Not exactly because they’re still together and share a son together. Also, Alice’s beautiful facial features clearly convinced Nic to stick around.
Matt Damon (Luciana Bozán Barroso)
Most of Matt Damon’s ex-girlfriends were very “Hollywood” and were actresses or worked in the industry. When Matt was in Miami back in 2003 filming “Stuck on You”, he met an Argentinian bartender named Luciana Bozán Barroso— who helped him escape fans from mobbing him. Everyone was shocked because honestly, one of his previous girlfriends was Winona freaking Ryder. Even if Luciana is as beautiful as Winona, people were still cruel because of her non-Hollywood background.
Matt and Luciana defied all negative expectations for their relationship and got married in a private civil ceremony in Manhattan on December 2005. Eight years later, they renewed their wedding vows in a more lavish ceremony in St. Lucia. They have 4 daughters together, one of which was from a previous relationship of Luciana’s and was subsequently adopted by Matt.
Tom Cruise (Katie Holmes)
Katie Holmes started out as Joey Potter in the TV series, “Dawson’s Creek”. Ever since Katie was a young girl, she was a big fan of Tom’s— well, who isn’t, really? Even if he’s a bit peculiar, there’s no denying that he has devastatingly good looks.
Now, back to their story. Weeks after Katie met Tom, he took her to Rome and the media went crazy over their relationship. They were such an unlikely couple that I had to double check if the rumors were true. We have Katie, who was recognizable but not famous enough to land on the covers of tabloids, and Tom who always had his actions followed by the media, including his very high-profile relationships.
Sadly, in 2012, they parted ways. Their break-up caused such a media frenzy and sparked rumors of Tom’s association with the Church of Scientology being too much for Katie and their daughter, Suri.
Kelsey Grammer (Kayte Walsh)
Kelsey is just one man who has had too much tragedy in his life. Kayte Walsh was a flight attendant from the United Kingdom and is 25 years younger than Kelsey Grammer. I can sense some people rolling their eyes at the facts of their relationship. Well, seeing how happy Kelsey is with his fifth wife, who are we to judge?
Back in 2012, the couple announced that they were expecting twins. However, come delivery time, only one, Faith Evangeline Elisa, came out. Her twin brother died in utero. Before this, Kayte’s previous pregnancy ended in miscarriage. Despite those unfortunate events, the couple are always all smiles when they photographed together.
Adam Sandler (Jacqueline Samantha Titone)
I’ve noticed that overall, comedians have the lengthiest marriages in Hollywood. I think the saying that you should choose someone funny instead of good-looking does hold up. A good example of this is Adam Sandler and his wife Jackie.
Jackie used to be a fashion model, while Adam got his start on “Saturday Night Live”. Their mutual friend, Rob Schneider, introduced them to each other. She was a fan of Adam’s and was ecstatic when he offered her a small part in his film, “Big Daddy”.
In 2000, things were getting serious between the two of them, so much so that Jackie converted to Judaism in order to be closer to Adam’s heritage. Even if they’ve been married since 2003, it seems like Adam still has the hots for his wife, especially after you see their candid photos together.
Jerry Seinfeld (Jessica Sklar)
Jerry and Jessica’s relationship began with much criticism due to the fact that they started dating weeks after Jessica came back from the honeymoon of her first marriage.
Being a fan of Jerry, Jessica was delighted when they first met. Unbeknownst to the public, Jessica was in a troubled relationship that ended in a very brief marriage. She credits Jerry as the reason why she had the strength to get over her failed marriage.
Despite the criticisms, it seems like the two are happy with each other. Jerry even said that, “If it wasn’t for Jess and the kids, I’d really blow my brains out. Jessica saved my life. She gave me something to care about.”
Clearly, they complement each other’s personalities. Make sure you marry a comedian 🙂 .
Conan O’Brien (Elizabeth Ann Powel)
Elizabeth was a senior copywriter for Foote, Cone & Belding when she visited the set of “Late Night with Conan O’Brien” to overlook an advertisement skit for the company. The moment Conan saw her sitting alongside the audience, he knew that she was “the one” and didn’t waste time in asking her out. Eighteen months after Conan saw Elizabeth’s face in the audience, he married her in Seattle in 2002. They have two kids together, Neve and Beckett.
Well then, she sure is lucky. I’ve been in the audience of so many shows and I’m still waiting for someone to swoop me off my feet. Lol.
