What’s the farthest thing you’ve done for your celebrity crush? Camp for hours at the entrance of their hotel to catch a glimpse of them? Hunt for every little piece of information about their lives online (for alarmingly long hours)? Or did you simply hang dozens of posters of them in your room and call it a day? No matter what you did, we know 11 people who took their celeb crush a bit farther.
They made their ultimate fanboy/fangirl fairytale happen: they are celebs who married their fans.
While most of us only dream of shaking hands with our favorite idols, these celebrities decided to spend the rest of their lives with their fans and put a ring on it.
How is this even possible? Aren’t celebrities supposed to canoodle only with the members of their very-exclusive Hollywood circle? These celebrities who married their fans prove it’s wrong.
Read along and take note!
11.) Matt Damon
While some celeb marriages only last a few days, some others do in fact stand the test of time, like the one between Matt Damon and Luciana Barroso.
Damon and Barroso’s love story comes right out of a meet-cute movie. Matt was in Miami on the production set of the comedy ‘Stuck on You’ in 2003 and a few crew members literally dragged him to a bar after work. That’s where he saw his soon-to-be wife, where she was then a bartender.
He explained in an appearance at ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’ in 2011: “I literally saw her across a crowded room, literally. Eight years and four kids later, that’s my life.”
If that’s not fate, we don’t know what is.
