It might seem like celebrities can easily get a date by simply walking down a red carpet — but sometimes celebs have to be creative with their wooing. It can be hard to impress them! Here are 9 celebrity couples who met in bizarre ways. Maybe we should take their advice?
9. Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel
Technically, Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel met through friends, which is the most classic way to find a mate. But there was a bit of old-fashioned formality involved: Justin asked a friend to call Jessica and ask her if it would be all right for him to call her and ask her out. Chivalry! Phone calls! “I did it the old fashioned way — by telephone. That’s something I learned from both my stepdad and my grandfather — that there is a thing called chivalry and it doesn’t have to die with the birth of the Internet,” Justin explained in an interview. “The way I see it, if you’re asking a girl out on a date, it’s only right to do it in a way that she can hear your voice. I had to be pretty persistent in order to get her to say yes. But I have a fair amount of tenacity and if I want something I stick to it. And in the end she agreed.” We’re impressed, Justin!
