9 Celebrity Couples Who Met On A Blind Date
Finding love in Hollywood isn’t as easy as it might seem. While many stars fall in love on-set or by running in the same circles, others have turned to something much more common — getting set up on a blind date. Finding time to get to know someone and date is tricky for a lot of stars, but luckily their friends were looking out for them when they decided to set them up with someone they thought would be a good match. Although some of these couples didn’t work out, others couldn’t be happier! Here are 9 celebrity couples who met on a blind date:
9. Courteney Cox and Johnny McDaid
Former Friends actress Courteney Cox was married to fellow actor David Arquette from 1999-2010 and finalized the divorce in 2013, and when she was ready to jump into the dating pool again, a surprising friend helped her out — Ed Sheeran. The popular singer ended up introducing Cox to Snow Patrol band member Johnny McDaid. “My housemate [Snow Patrol’s Johnny McDaid] who I’ve lived with for a year, I introduced him to Courteney Cox. They started dating and [are] crazy about each other,” Sheeran revealed in an interview about setting the two up in late 2013. Although Cox and McDaid became engaged in June 2014, they called it off nearly two years later and even though they later reconciled, they still haven’t made it down the aisle.
8. Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris
Taylor Swift is well known for her many and varied romances, but one of her biggest and longest lasting was with Calvin Harris. After so many romance misses in her life, her friend Ellie Goulding thought Swift and Harris would make a good match so she set them up. “I did play matchmaker. That’s true,” Goulding said. “Calvin is a really great mate and he’s so fantastic, and Taylor is such a cool person who I love. I thought, ‘They’re both really awesome and both really tall, they’ll be brilliant together!'” While things went well for over a year, the two called it quits in June 2016.
