Celebrities Who Found Love in Unusual Situations

Some famous actors and musicians date other artists; others date non-showbiz people. In some cases, celebrities end up in either scenario through unusual circumstances, making them seem like they’re also not immune to the strange situations we normal human beings sometimes get into.

Here’s a few of today’s celebrities who met their current partners through out-of-the-ordinary circumstances.

Jim Toth & Reese Witherspoon

You might think that this talent manager is probably the “Legally Blonde” star’s agent and that’s how they met, but they actually first laid eyes on each after when Toth approached the actress to apologize for his drunk pal, who was said to be hitting on her. Considering they both went on to exchange “I dos,” the encounter apparently was a fortuitous one.

Jake T. Austin & Danielle Caesar

She’s been Twitter-stalking and tweeting him since 2009. And in January 2016, the “Wizards of Waverly Place” actor confirmed that the two are now dating. This is every fan girl’s dream come true and will surely reinforce hopes that it is possible to someday date one’s celebrity idol.

Matt Damon & Luciana Barroso

The actor hid out behind the bar in Miami’s Crobar, where bartender Barroso was working, because he was trying to escape some fans as he was “getting hassled.” His now-wife demanded what he was doing crouching behind her bar, and the rest is history. They went on to marry and now have three children of their own, plus a daughter from Barroso’s previous relationship.

Harrison Ford & Calista Flockhart

The “Ally McBeal” star spilled her drink on the actor on purpose at the Golden Globes in 2002 just to meet him. Her plan apparently was so successful she not only got to meet him, she ended up marrying him.

Marcus Mumford & Carey Mulligan

The acclaimed actress and her musician beau were actually pen pals since childhood. They only managed a face-to-face meeting when they were already adults (and famous ones at that). They went on to become a couple and sealed the deal with marriage.

Nicolas Cage & Alice Kim

When the actor dined at an LA restaurant more than 10 years ago, a waitress-fan at the establishment approached him to ask for an autograph. She ended up getting more than what she asked for – she got his phone number and later became his wife.

Jamie Hince & Kate Moss

The modelling icon reportedly did a Google search of men “just for fun” and found the rocker in the search results. She was digging how he looked, so she allowed her friend to set her up with him.  They ended up spending the next 4 days together and later tying the knot.

Patrick Dempsey & Jillian Fink

The actor had an appointment with hair and makeup artist Fink one day for a haircut. Fink didn’t expect her client to be the McDreamy Dempsey until he appeared through her salon’s doors. The appointment became the start of new beginnings as she later became his long-term hairstylist and wife.
