9 Famous Couples Who Started Out as Each Other’s Celeb Crushes Because They Were Just That Lucky
Chloë Grace Moretz and Brooklyn Beckham are pretty cute, and I’m not just saying that because this alleged new couple is in the blossom of their youth, discovering their feelings. Actually, just writing about teenagers' feelings makes me fidget and gives me awkward high school flashbacks of locker run-ins with my crush. I wonder if these two feel the same because, according to a source who spoke with Us Weekly, Moretz and Beckham are each other’s celebrity crushes. This shows us that celebrities do the celeb crush thing, too (i.e. putting up posters of their crush on their walls, fan-ing out to their movies). Apparently, stars really are just like us — just with a better chance at dating their choice celebrity.
Click through for a few more couples who ended up marrying or dating their famous crushes.
Tom Cruise & Katie Holmes
While we all remember that Tom Cruise jumped on Oprah’s couch to claim his love for Katie Holmes, a young Holmes actually prayed that she would one day marry him. Hey it worked! They were married for six years and had daughter Suri.
Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie
According to the Daily Mail, Mr. and Mrs. Smith producer Arnon Milchan said that Brad Pitt was already crushing hard on Angelina Jolie before she was cast as his co-lead. Their chemistry on set eventually led to his divorce from then-wife Jennifer Aniston.
Ashton Kutcher & Mila Kunis
He was Kunis’ first kiss on the set of That’s 70’s Show. They stayed friends after the show ended. A source claims that Kutcher “always had a thing” for Kunis and called it “a real infatuation” too, and they’re now engaged and expecting.
Kanye West & Kim Kardashian
One of Kanye West’s songs talks about his hardcore crush on reality-star Kim Kardashian. In “Cold,” West raps about Kardashian’s former relationship with her ex-husband Kris Humphries: “And I’ll admit I fell in love with Kim/ Around the same time she had fell in love with him.” The rapper even showed up the rest of her exes with his single, “I Won.”
Katy Perry & John Mayer
In a 2013 W magazine interview, singer Katy Perry gushed about her then boyfriend John Mayer, admitting that, “I actually am dating my crush. I had a crush on him for a long time, and it just so happens we fit together great.” They fit to well together they made a rather lovey-dovey duet called “Who You Love” before breaking up earlier this year.
Ryan Seacrest & Julianne Hough
While the two were dating, actress and ballroom dancing pro Julianne Hough admitted that Seacrest was her first celebrity crush. They dated for two years. That’s as much as you can hope for with any crush, really.
Kelly Preston & John Travolta
Kelly Preston said she knew that she would marry John Travolta when she was only 16 years old: “I came out of a film, saw the poster for Grease and I knew I’d be with him. I just knew.” Funny, I think we all had that feeling about Channing Tatum when we saw the Magic Mike poster.
Kate Middleton & Prince William
Before the fairy tale wedding and Prince George and Kate-fashion-mania, Kate Middleton apparently had a poster of the future king up in her room at St. Andrews. Obviously, she took it down when they started dating, but then again she probably didn’t need it since she had the real deal in front of her.
