In a world where celebrity couples exist just to drive tabloid sales, or to help a hurting career – it’s nice to know that true love still exists. The following celebrities didn’t let their agents choose their spouse – no sir. They fell in love with fans of their work! You’re going to be shocked by some of these, that’s for sure. We’ll start the list off with an easy one, though…

Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen

Before meeting Tom, Gisele was one of the top models in the world. However, despite this, she was still a few levels below Tom Brady. When the two eventually met through a blind date organized by a mutual friend, they got along spectacularly. Talk about speaking your goals into existence! They’ve now been married since 2009. Tom Brady and Giselle Bundchen’s net worth sits somewhere around 600 million dollars— they are one spectacularly rich couple. Kudos!

The next superstar met her husband the old fashioned way…by chance.

Jessica Alba and Cash Warren

Jessica was one of the hottest stars on television when she met Cash Warren, a Fantastic Four production assistant, in 2004. However, the pair soon hit it off and they eventually got married in 2018. They even have two daughters together and have a combined net worth of two hundred million dollars.

Matt Damon and Luciana Barroso

When the Martian star, Matt Damon, met his wife Luciana Barroso, she was a waitress in Miami. Matt was immediately star-struck (which was rather ironical) and pursued her. They got talking and began to date. They got married two years later, and have had three kids. Surprisingly, they are still going strong. The couple has a combined net worth of a hundred and seventy million dollars. Most of that is Matt’s, of course. And now, for a surprising story!

The next ‘fan’ can’t keep his eyes off his wife…even though there certainly is a distraction.

Reese Witherspoon and Jim Toth

Reese Witherspoon was, for some time, the stereotypical Hollywood star who only dated stars. For example, she married Ryan Phillippe and had a long term relationship with Jake Gyllenhaal. However, she soon met talent agent Jim Toth and began to sing a different tune. Toth wasn’t the biggest agent around, but he was certainly one of Witherspoon’s biggest fans. They got married in 2011 and welcomed a child in 2012. Reese Witherspoon’s husband sure is a lucky man!

Reese Witherspoon’s net worth is something like 204 million dollars. Yes, even the biggest stars can settle down for a fan— like the story of Billie Joe Armstrong will tell you.

Billie Joe Armstrong and Adrienne Nesser

Armstrong met Nesser at where you’d expect most stars to meet their fans— backstage!

And they kicked off their romance immediately. While the Green Day frontman may be the dream man for many people (normal people and celebrities alike), it appears that he’s dedicated his life to being the best partner to Nesser. Can you believe it? They’ve been married for over twenty-five years. Billie Joe Armstrong and Adrienne Nesser’s net worth is nearly 55 million dollars.

Jamie Lee Curtis and Christopher Guest

Curtis and Guest are both stars in their own way, so who do you think was the fan of who? Well, as the story goes, when Jaime Lee Curtis was 25 she was flipping through a magazine when she saw Guest’s picture. She told her friend she was going to marry Guest, and as fate would have it, her friend had a way of arranging a date. After a few dates, Curtis and Guest got into a relationship that led to a marriage that has been standing for over thirty years. Who’s more notable, Jamie Lee Curtis’s husband or Christopher Guest’s wife?

The couple has a combined net worth of a hundred million dollars, with 40 million of that belonging to Christopher Guest.

Ringo Starr and Maureen Cox

If you have a huge crush on a celebrity, you’d know exactly how Maureen Cox felt. She was crushing on the drummer of the Beatles in her teens, and she continued to crush on him well into her twenties. As a hairdresser, she often went to the Beatles show. To her shock, Ringo Starr took a fancy to her and actually married her – making her Ringo Starr’s wife. What a title.

Sadly, they were only married for ten years and they divorced in 1975. Throughout their marriage, they had a combined net worth of just about 50 million dollars. But not all celebrity marriage hybrids end in divorce…the next one seems like it will be a happy ending.

Steve Harvey and Marjorie Bridges

While Majorie Bridges and Steve Harvey have known each other for a long time, they met at a comedy club where Majorie came to see Steve perform. When he became famous, she continued to be one of his biggest fans, and they finally got married in 2007. Steve Harvey’s wife and he claim a net worth of 200 million dollars.

If you’re amazed at the net worth of this couple, then you would be utterly shocked at the combined net worth of Nicholas Cage and his wife.

Nicholas Cage and Alice Kim

The combined net worth of Nicholas Cage and his wife is just twenty-five million dollars. Even though they are now separated, Nicholas met Alice Kim when she was just 19 years old and was working as a waitress at a restaurant. At that point, Cage was about twenty years her senior. That’s a huge gap! Sadly, they were only married for twelve years and divorced in 2016.

Nicholas Cage’s wife – or shall we say ex-wife – probably enjoyed her promotion from waiting tables. Where did our next superstar meet her husband?

Julia Roberts and Danny Moder

In 2000, Julia Roberts was already one of the biggest stars in the world. Her husband to be, Danny, was a big fan and he worked as a cinematographer on her movie, The Mexican. They met on the set, hit it off and they married in 2002. Shockingly, they are still married. Julia Robert’s husband and she are worth quite a lump sum. Julia Robert’s net worth (shall we say, the couples’ net worth) is two hundred and fifty million dollars. But Julia Roberts isn’t the only celeb with a long-lasting marriage.

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian


Kanye West was always a big fan of Kim Kardashian. In a Ryan Seacrest radio interview, West revealed he first saw Kardashian in a picture with Paris Hilton from 2006. He asked his friend, ‘Have you seen that girl Kim Kar-dijon?'”. The two eventually met and grew a close friendship. At this point, Kardashian and West became more prolific, with West’s rap career and Kardashian’s reality TV show taking off. After becoming a couple, the two tied the knot in 2014. The couple has four children together.

Jason Momoa and Lisa Bonet

Michael Jordan and Yvette Prieto

Jerry Seinfeld and Jessica Seinfeld

Jessica Seinfeld’s wife has never really been as popular as Jerry, and she has never wanted to be. She met Jerry at a gym in 1998, and they immediately fell in love. Shockingly, Jessica dumped her first husband immediately after her honeymoon with him in order to marry Jerry. But that doesn’t really matter as Jerry and Jessica have been married for twenty-one years now. The Seinfeld’s net worth is shocking; $950 million dollars!

The following couple met in a romantic spot; the strip club!

Wiz Khalifa and Amber Rose

Even though Amber Rose was a celebrity in her own right when she met Wiz Khalifa, she was still a really huge fan of the rapper. They met in 2011, started dating and in 2013 they got married. However, despite their love for each other, they couldn’t make it work and divorced just a year later. Probably was fun while it lasted…

The next couple didn’t let age get in the way, that’s for sure.

Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon

Mariah Carey is eleven years older than Nick Cannon, and she was presumably the stuff of his teenage dreams. Luckily for Nick, those dreams came to reality when he married Mariah Carey in 2008. Sadly, the couple separated in 2016. At the time of their separation, Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey’s combined net worth was reportedly north of 300 million dollars.

But we aren’t done with all-star couples just yet!

Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow

Who do you think was the fan in this relationship? Gwen or Chris? Most people would say Chris, but the answer is actually Gwen. After being wowed at a concert, Gwen sought out Chris and they hit it off. They married in 2003 but sadly divorced in 2016. Gwyneth Paltrow’s wife is probably just a tad more famous than Chris Martin’s wife…but just by a hair.

The next couple is a bona fide fan-star combo…

Conan O’Brien and Liza Powel

When Conan O’Brien met Liza Powel, she was just a copywriter who was working on a project with him in 2000. Surprisingly, they had a deeper connection and started dating. She was a huge fan of his work before they met, and he became a huge fan of her after. They got married in 2002 are still together today. Conan O’Brien’s wife and he share a net worth of over $200 million!

Elvis Presley and Priscilla Presley

Before Elvis Presley became Elvis Presley— before he became the King, he had only one loyal fan, and she was rooting for him from the get-go. He met her when she was fourteen and they got married seven years later. Sadly, their marriage didn’t last for too long, and they got divorced six years later. At the time of their divorce, the couple had a net worth of just 15 million dollars. Sadly, this isn’t the only sad divorce story here. Check the next slide for some juicy deets on Tom Cruise!

They got married in 2008, but sadly, the relationship wasn’t to last as they got divorced in 2012. At the time of their divorce, the couple has a combined net worth of just two million dollars. We don’t suppose Zuri McCant got a lot of money as divorce settlement.

Fergie and Josh Duhamel

Josh Duhamel is a pretty successful actor, so it’s hard to imagine him being starstruck by anyone. But the long term fan of singer Fergie was tongue-tied the first time he saw Fergie in real life. Although he was pretty awkward at first, they hit it off and started dating in 2004 and got married in 2009. Sadly, their fairy tale romance ended in 2017 when they split. At the time of their split, they had a combined net worth of 55 million dollars.

Anne Hathaway and Adam Shulman

Anne Hathaway is certainly one of the biggest actresses in entertainment, and it was always going to take something special for her to fall in love. That something special came in the form of Adam Shulman, a super fan and a producer. Anne Hathaway and Shulman married in 2012 and welcomed their first child in 2016. The couple has a combined net worth of 70 million dollars.

Prince William and Kate Middleton

Prince William and Kate Middleton look so amazing together, that you probably couldn’t imagine a time they weren’t together. Although William isn’t a celebrity (in the normal sense, at least) he once had a staunch fan in Kate. In fact, rumours have it that Kate had a poster of Will on her wall as a teen. The second in line to the British throne, Prince William, is pretty wealthy and he and Kate have a combined net worth of 40 million dollars.

Vince Vaughn’s wife, Kyla Weber, met the actor at the wedding of a mutual friend, and they both kicked it off. In 2010, they got married and now have a daughter. Vince Vaughn’s net worth is something around $50 million. A great story for a couple of natural lovebirds…

Ellen Pompeo and Chris Ivery

First off, who doesn’t like Neil Patrick Harris? We’re all fans of his, basically. When Harris met Burtka, Burtka was a fan, but he was already spoken for. However, after hanging out for a while, they decided to give this love thing a shot. They got into a relationship and got married after the marriage equality act in the US was passed in 2014.
