Celebrity Love Stories: How Your Favorite “It” Couples Met
Everyone loves a good love story, which is why filmmakers choose to release new romance movies every chance they get. The only thing better than a manufactured love story is a real love story. Have you ever wondered how your favorite celebrity couples got together? We have. So, rather than wonder, we researched the history of some of the most popular A-list couples to see how they met and fell in love. Check out how these Hollywood power couples initially hooked up:
15. George Clooney and Amal Clooney
George Clooney met his wife Amal when a friend of his brought her to his home in Lake Como in 2013. “It’s the wildest thing. A mutual friend of ours said, ‘I’m stopping by and can I bring my friend?’ And I was like, ‘Of course.’ I got a call from my agent who called me and said, ‘I met this woman who’s coming to your house who you’re gonna marry,’” he told David Letterman on his new show My Next Guest Needs No Introduction. “The funniest thing was my mom and dad were visiting, so my parents were there, and we just talked and we stayed up all night talking and then, you know, I got her email address ’cause she was going to send me some pictures of my parents and then, we started writing and I didn’t know if she wanted to go out with me. I just thought, you know, we were buddies.” He had to pursue her for months until she finally agreed to go out with him and then he proposed to her six months later. Now, they are married with twins!
14. Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds
Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds were both with other people when they met on the set of Green Lantern. She was dating Penn Badgley and he was married to Scarlett Johansson. They initially became friends, but a year after first meeting, it became more when they went on a double date with other people. “She was on a date with another guy, and I was on a date with another girl,” Reynolds said. “That was the most awkward date [from their perspective] probably because we were just like fireworks coming across.”
