15 Cute Ways Celebrity Couples Met
In film talk, a “meet cute” is the cute moment when two people who will eventually fall in love, meet for the first time. But meet cute’s don’t only happen when the cameras are rolling! Here are the 15 cute, funny and sometimes odd ways these celebrity couples met.
Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel
Timberlake asked Biel out playground style—letting his buddy deliver the message! Timberlake had a mutual friend call Biel and ask if it was okay if Timberlake called her and asked her out.
Uma Thurman and Ethan Hawke
Their odd first meeting might have been a bad omen for the now-split couple. Hawke tried to chat up Thurman at an ATM machine, by which she was not impressed. But the two hit it off later on the set of “Gattaca.”
Rita Ora and Calvin Harris
These two met while they were fighting on Twitter! After Ora claimed that she’d been offered to sing on a Harris-produced song, but turned it down, the two exchanged some heated Tweets. But things ended up getting heated in other ways.
Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden
Diaz and Madden actually met through another celebrity couple—Diaz is friends with Nicole Richie and Madden is of course the brother of Richie’s husband, Joel Madden.
David and Victoria Beckham
David saw Victoria before she even knew it—he admitted in an interview to falling in love with the fashion icon in her Spice Girls music video for “Say You’ll Be There.”
Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne
Ozzy probably wasn’t too thrilled at the site of Sharon when he first met her, since she had been sent by her father to collect a debt from the rocker! But, the two were hitched three years later.
Peter Andre and Emily Macdonagh
After being treated for kidney stones, Andre wanted to meet the family of the surgeon who saved him. That surgeon happened to have a lovely daughter—Emily Macdonagh—who Andre now has a daughter with.
Scarlett Johansson and Romain Dauriac
Information about these two is mostly under wraps for now, but rumor has it they were introduced by a tattoo artist who has done a little ink art on both the stars.
Isaac and Nicole Hanson
Isaac spotted Nicole when she was watching him in concert with his old trio, Hanson. The singer made the stage manager stop Nicole before she took off and the rest is history.
Matt Damon and Luciana Barroso
Let’s give it up for Damon for giving “regular people” a chance! Damon met Barroso when she was bartending at a bar in Miami, where the actor stopped in for a drink after a day of shooting “Stuck on You.”
Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones
Douglas met Zeta-Jones at the premiere of her movie “The Mask of Zoro.” The actor approached the actress and said, “I want to father your children.” Zeta-Jones was initially put off by him, but later accepted a date. As we know, Douglas did accomplish his goal of fathering Zeta-Jones’ kids.
Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux
Aniston and Theroux met in a normal way for actors—on movie sets—but the funny part was Aniston has been quoted saying when she first met Theroux, she thought he looked like he could be a serial killer! But later realized he was very sweet.
Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen
Who would have thought an NFL star and a supermodel needed matchmakers? But in fact, these two were set up on a blind date by a mutual friend.
Nick Lachey and Vanessa Lachey
Vanessa played the love interest in the music video for Lachey’s song “What’s Left of Me,” which was actually written about Lachey’s ex-wife Jessica Simpson.
Kate Hudson and Matt Bellamy
Hudson still has some of her old hippie ways—she met Bellamy at the Coachella music festival in California. Bellamy helped Hudson re-locate her group of friends, but they both found much more than that.
