To Top

For many people the celebrity crush is a total fantasy, but for others it becomes an actual reality. Sometimes it’s people outside of the entertainment industry that happen to have their adoration reciprocated when they meet the star, and sometimes it’s other celebrities who are ardent fans of another. Here are some cases where the celebs actually ended up marrying their fans. It might give hope to the rest of us!

Matt Damon tied the knot with his fan Luciana Bozan, who was a bartender.
