Woman may have been flocking to Ruben Studdard when he went on to win American Idol, but one fan caught Studdard’s eyes and he never looked back. Studdard met his wife Zuri McCants at a Wal-Mart in Atlanta. Studdard was autographing her CD when the two experienced an immediate attraction!

Third time may be the charm for double divorcee Nicolas Cage. Cage met his current wife Alice Kim when she was working as a waitress at Los Angeles restaurant Kabuki. Kim apparently loved Cage’s work, numbers were exchanged, and the duo turned up pregnant sometime later. The two wed at a private North California ranch in 2004.
Apparently Katie Holmes had a crush on Tom Cruise as a teenager but we’re pretty sure she never imagined that she’d grow up and actually marry the famous actor.
Matt Damon is one celeb that found love outside of the normal celebrity couple circuit. Damon met his wife Luciana Bozan at a Miami restaurant where she was working, began dating her, and later married her in 2005.

Patrick Dempsey and Jillian Fink met each other after he booked an appointment with her to get his hair cut. The two clicked immediately and started flirting. Fink was quite aware of Dempsey’s acting roles and praised his career. The two got married in 1999 and have three children together. By the way, if you’re wondering, Fink still cuts Dempsey’s hair.
Kelsey Grammer & Kayte Walsh
Some may regard Katye Wash as a young homewrecker, but Kelsey Grammer now refers to her as wife. Walsh, who was a huge fan of Grammer’s shows, Cheers and Frasier, stole Grammer’s heart from ex-wife and reality show star Camille Grammar, and received huge fan backlash.

While men may throw themselves at multiple Golden Globe winner Julia Roberts, she has only returned her love to one fan: her husband Danny Moder. Moder was working the set of Roberts’ movie, The Mexican, as a cameraman.
While Jackie Titone doesn’t share the grand celebrity stature associated with her husband Adam Sandler, both of them know the struggles of being an actor in the movie industry. Maybe it was the commonality that caused Sandler and Titone to get married in 2003. Titone converted to Judaism for Sandler in 2000 and they married 3 years later. They have two daughters, Sadie Madison Sandler and Sunny Madeline Sandler.

Kelly Preston can sort of predict her future, at least when it comes to her love life. Preston says she always knew she was going to meet and marry Travolta, because she saw it in a vision.

I was about 16 years old.” Preston says Travolta still teases her about the alleged “vision” to this day.

Katy Perry had lustful eyes for Brand ever since she made a cameo alongside the comedian in Get Him To The Greek where she had to make out with Russell Brand’s character. She was a “fan” ever since then, but Russell returned the feelings after Katy performed at the 2009 MTV VMA’s where Brand hosted. After her performance he announced to the audience, “Katy Perry didn’t win an award and she’s staying at the same hotel as me, so she’s gonna need a shoulder to cry on. So in a way, I’m the real winner tonight.” They were engaged after 4 months but eventually divorced in December of 2011.
Kanye West and Kim Kardashian
Kanye has always talked about his long-term crush on Kim Kardashian starting back in her celebrity styling days, as any loyal fan, he kept up (no pun intended) with her life and as soon as Kris Humphries was allegedly out of the picture, he swooped in and now the madly-in-love couple have a daughter, North West.
