Love In a Hopeless Place: Celebrities Who Married A Fan!

20 Celebrities Who Married Their Fans

Fans love comes a dime a dozen when you’re a public figure. But apparently, these celebrity lovers are an exception. Check out 14 celebrities who married one of their fans, and couldn’t be happier, or not!

Ruben Studdard STUDDARD


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! Studdard and McCants married in 2008, but later divorced in April 2012 citing irreconcilable differences.

Brad Pitt & Jennifer AnistonANISTON PITT WENN


Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt is another pair stemming from celebrity turned smitten fan. The two met during a blind date and Aniston fell head over heels almost immediately. Jennifer had been fan since Brad made a cameo on her television series Friends.

Jesse James & Sandra BullockBULLOCK JAMES


While Sandra can hardly stand to be in the same room with ex-husband Jesse James, she was once a huge fan of his long before they exchanged vows. The two were eventually introduced when she took her 10-year-old godson to the set of Monster Garage.

Nicolas Cage & Alice KimCAGE WENN


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.

Katie Holmes & Tom Cruise CRUISE HOLMES WENN


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 & Luciana BozanDAMON WENN


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. It’s rumored that since Bozan is Argentinean, she had seen a few of his movies and was really impressed.

Patrick Dempsey & Jillian FinkDEMPSEY FINK WENN


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.

Anne Hathaway & Adam ShulmanHATHAWAY


Anne Hathaway found love in longtime fan and lesser known actor Adam Shulman. The two met on a movie set that Adam was working on, got engaged in 2011, and married in November 2012.

Elvis & Priscilla PresleyPRESELEYS WENN


Priscilla Presley was 14-years-old when she asked to be introduced to entertainment legend Elvis Presley. A family friend introduced the two during a party at Elvis’ home and the rest was history. Well sort of. Priscilla and Elvis eventually divorced after she started an affair with her karate instructor. The divorced was finalized in 1973 after six years.



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.

Adam Sandler & Jackie TitoneSANDLERS WENN


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.

John Travolta & Kelly PrestonTRAVOLTA WENN


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. Preston explains that she “came out of a film, saw the poster for ‘Grease’ and I knew I’d be with him. I just knew. I was about 16 years old.” Preston says Travolta still teases her about the alleged “vision” to this day.

Wiz Khalifa & Amber Rose WIZ WENN


In case anyone was wondering, Amber Rose and Wiz Khalifa have been married since July 2013. The two started dating in 2011 after Rose’s break-up with Kanye West. During Rose’s highly publicized relationship with Kanye West, she says she was always a fan of Wiz. They have one son Sebastian Taylor Thomaz that was born on February 21, 2013.

Russell Brand & Katy Perry

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. They’re not technically married, but are engaged.

Jessica Alba and Cash Warren

The two met on the set of “Fantastic Four” where Cash Warren worked as a Production Assistant. The two crossed paths and both sides say they had instant chemistry. The two have been married for 5 years and have  two children together.

Fergie and Josh Duhamel

In an interview with InStyle magazine back in October 2004, Josh Duhamel was quoted saying Fergie was his celebrity crush and that he has recurring dreams about the singer (this was while he was engaged to Kristy Pierce). Later, the two met on the set of his show “Las Vegas,” and Fergie asked Josh if his “dream was good.” The two started dating and married in 2009.

 Tom Brady and Giselle Bundchen

Giselle and Tom Brady met on a beach in Rio de Janeiro where Tom was playing beach football and Giselle was there suntanning, doing as models do. He was throwing passes and jokingly says, “Who knew she was a fan of 20 yard in cuts?” The couple married in February 2009.

Steve and Marjorie Harvey

Marjorie and Steve Harvey have been married since 2007 and although they have faced some trials and tribulations along the way, they’re still going strong. Good thing Steve is a funny man, the two met while Marjorie was checking out a comedy club where Steve happened to be performing. He noticed her in the crowd and the rest is history.


  • rob

    Married in 2000. Pitt was on Friends in 2001. Research people!

  • Holly Golightly

    Whoever wrote this is such an amateur. First of all, Jennifer Aniston is not just a fan. She was extremely famous, and they were set up by their agents, as happens in Hollywood, I guess. He was Friends years after they were together, and married! Do your research!

  • Carolyn

    What does this even mean?: “It’s rumored that since Bozan is Argentinean, she had seen a few of his movies and was really impressed.” What?

    • AuntySocial

      Doesn’t make any sense to me either. What does her nationality have to do with what movies she watches?

      • Mickey

        Perhaps the only people who are still impressed are in Argentina?

    • vamanos

      Maybe it means she had only gotten to see a few of his movies, not all, since she is from Argentina and not from US.

      • vee115

        they have movies in Argentina!

        • zzlangerhans

          Not if she was a native of the Argentine rain forest, hunting spider monkeys with curare-tipped arrows.

      • Lisa

        Then they should have worded it differently. That’s why the English language has rules — to avoid this kind of confusion.

      • vamanos

        I’m not agreeing with the comment, I’m just trying to figure out what they meant.

    • Big Morgan

      are they implying that Damon is the Hasslehoff of Argentina? LOL

    • Nate

      Exactly. They need to hire real journalists who actually know how to write.

    • Jasmine

      THATS NOT EVEN HER LAST NAME! Her last name is Barroso…

  • Anon

    A talking head with a weird concept. Anyone with a spouse married a fan. Poorly conceived and poorly written. Try harder next time.

  • planetcrap

    Stupid just stupid

  • Elizabeth Aspen

    Who wrote this nonsense? Misspellings, bad grammar, no research. Are you seriously that lazy?

    • wordygirl

      I think it’d be really easy to get a job writing for whatever this website is.

  • Darth Stewie

    Apparently it’s amateur writing hour. Wait, WTF am I doing here??

  • Raymond LEcuyer

    This doesn’t have the biggest one ! Richard Dawson marrying a contestant on Family Feud !

    • Largeness

      Well Dawson stuck his tongue down all their throats, he might as well marry one of them.

      • racknstack

        LOL. true dis.

    • Largeness

      Well Dawson stuck his tongue down all their throats, he might as well marry one of them.

  • Muffin Man

    Left out Gary Numan, who married an official member of his fan club.

  • Muffin Man

    Left out Gary Numan, who married an official member of his fan club.

  • Shannon

    The Ruben story made me laugh. “And he never looked back” means he didn’t have any regrets etc. Then in the next sentence they mentioned they divorced. Uh I’m sure he looked back a few times :)

  • Shannon

    SOunds like the person who wrote this article had no idea how to write :)

  • yellow__man

    All I want to know is who the eff are Amber Rose and Wiz Khalifa? Never heard of them before. They’re celebrities?

    • Rebecka Toney

      Wiz is extremely successful, yeah. You’re lucky if that’s “all (you) want to know.” I wish to know so many things …

  • patti

    What a stupid and poorly researched article. Jennifer and Brad were already married when he appeared on Friends.

  • Taurus63

    Ha! Lies! Kelsey Grammars wife knew nothing about him before she met him. I heard it first hand from her mouth on Oprah’s show about a year ago. Get your facts straight!

    • ObservintheATL

      Alrighty, then. You keep believing your little friend. Oh, by the way, in a separate statement, she said she’s not proud of the way their relationship started. Huuummm!

  • fifiwereking

    since half of these spouses are other celebrities, calling them “fans” is a misnomer…

    • ObservintheATL

      Thank you. I though I was the only one thinking this very thing.

  • Lisa

    Alexis Webb is what… 8 years old? What a joke of an article! Poorly researched, poorly written.

  • DC

    And another mistake:Priscilla Presley was introduced to Elvis at a party in Germany, when he was stationed there while in the army. Lazy writer.

  • bobby

    I agree with most of you. It is poor and somewhat starving of an article. Could I have my five mins back that I wasted on reading this article?

  • SingleMotherofOne

    Who is Ruben Studdard??

  • Books Will Save The Planet

    Isn’t marrying a fan like a dealer taking his own drugs?

  • Sheila O’Brien

    The better title for this article would have been “Celebrities Who Married Someone Already In The Industry”.

    • ObservintheATL


  • Geesh

    Love in a hopeless place? They were so hopeless that they had to settle for less and marry a fan? I don’t get it.

  • joe

    the only person to actually marry a fan from what I’ve read on this list is rueben studdard

  • wordygirl

    Re: Jennifer Anniston and Brad Pitt: they were already married when he appeared on Friends. Makes me doubt the veracity of the rest of this article. : /

  • wordygirl

    What what’s the title supposed to mean? “Love in a Hopeless Place”? Has she confused the meanings of “hopeless” and “unlikely,” possibly? Or is she just a terrible writer?

  • Melissa Stephens

    I thought they were together when brad pitt made a cameo on friends?

  • danzee

    When in doubt, just make things up!

  • Ashley Howell

    Jen and Brad were married when he made a cameo on Friends.

  • Mel

    Brad Pitt wasn’t on Friends until after he was married to Jennifer Aniston. This article sucks.

  • beefycrunchburrito

    “Priscilla and Elvis eventually divorced after she started an affair with her karate instructor.”

    makes it seem like she was at fault. Elvis was cheating on her constantly since the first day they met. he was a huge pervert and drug addicted scumbag

  • Erik Kreider

    Umm? It’s kind of misleading when half of the “fans” are also celebrities.

  • Smarter ‘n’ You

    WTH, Katie Holmes is a celebrity in her own right and all Tom did was twist up her brain with silent baby birthing crap and ruin a bunch of her best years.

  • DTT

    Seriously?????? Priscilla is supposedly blamed here for “her” having an affair? Get real! Can’t lie about this one. Elvis had a different one every other day.

  • Melting in Phoenix

    The know-nothing who wrote this is likely a regular guest on those celebrity biography programs who never met the person once but claim to know their life story from birth. Glad I only got to the third false example before I just couldnt anymore.

  • Heather

    Did they not know that Jennifer and Brad were already married when he was on Friends???

  • Melba

    Um, Jennifer and Brad were already dating when he guest starred on Friends. They were set up with each other by mutual friends.

  • Tammy R Burris

    People should shut the #uck up. It is hard out there. I do not care what they have, finding someone is hard and it must be especially hard when you are famous. It is that we just do not feel sorry for famous people. Sometimes I think they are the most helpless.

  • Christy

    Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt were married in 2000 and Brad, made a guest appearance while they were married. They were set up by their publicists and it was not a blind date. This person needs to check their facts. Horribly written article – fire your editor.

  • LeoWulf

    Totally missed:
    Actor Keith Coogan (“Adventures in Babysitting,” “Don’t Tell Mom the Babysitter’s Dead,” etc., & grandson of late actor Jackie Coogan) met his wife, Kristen “Pinky” (Shean) Coogan when she attended a Fan Convention & interviewed him for a “Fandom” article (for “Mike the Fanboy”). It was love-at-first-sight, & after a whirlwind romance, they married last month (October 26, 2013). She is the very definition of a “Superfan” (& proud of it!!!)!
    Also, I thought Matt Damon’s wife was his hairdresser or something?

  • Dan

    Here we go again. Pitt and Aniston were married BEFORE his appearance on Friends. That’s why he did the show to begin with.

  • Nat

    I know I’m late to the game here but what about Luke Perry? He married the woman who sent him one of her bras…

  • dbl-tap

    This actually made me lol.
    It’s like the writer thought:
    “Crap…I forgot to mention she’s Argentinean…Eh, I’ll just jam it in here. Yeah, that’s good.”

  • Jeanette

    The item about Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt. is incorrect. They were married when Brad Pitt went on Friends.

  • Sexual Harassment Panda

    Ruben Studdard is a celebrity?

  • JonaD

    All the women I sleep with are my fans… why would I have it any other way?
