A Dream Come True: 10 Celebrities Who Actually Married Their Fans

10 Celebrities Who Married Their Fans
Sounds too good to be true, right? But yes, there are a few celebrities who actually got married to their fans (so what if these 'fans' were also in the movie business?).

"You may be married to a star, but that doesn't mean they'll treat you like one."
― Jess C. Scott
A marriage is a marriage, and don't let anyone tell you otherwise. Celebrity or regular Joe, a marriage is a union of two people who may make it last until they reach their grave, or treat it like the dish of the day.

But what really gets the eyeballs rolling is when a celebrity actually picks a partner who is a relative nobody in terms of fame. Well, hold on to your horses before you channel your inner Cinderella―it doesn't happen as often as you'd expect. Also, dig a little deeper, and you'll notice that these regular Joes and Janes aren't as "ordinary" as the rest of us plebeians. Read this post, and you'll get what I'm trying to say here.
List of Celebrities Who Married Their Fans
John Travolta | Kelly Preston
Kelly Preston was an aspiring actress and model when she first saw John Travolta do the Greased Lightning. Cupid struck, and she had made up her mind to marry the Danny of her dreams. A few dud relationships (with George Clooney and Charlie Sheen, no less) and a decade later, Preston did get married to the beau of her dreams.
Nicolas Cage | Alice Kim
Nicolas Cage's ex list boasts of names like Patricia Arquette and Lisa Marie Presley, but he ultimately found love in Alice Kim, a waitress (and a fan) who worked at a sushi place he frequented.
Luciana Barroso | Matt Damon
Matt Damon and Luciana Barroso share a sweet story―she helped him ditch the paparazzi when he was a customer at the watering hole where she worked. It helped that Barroso was an admirer of his work―who wasn't in 2004?―and their marriage is still as strong as ever.
Jillian Fink | Patrick Dempsey
Patrick Dempsey met his sweetheart-to-be when he booked an appointment at her salon for a haircut. Jillian Fink got the fan girl moment of her life, and went on to become Patrick Dempsey's better half.
Kayte Walsh | Kelsey Grammer
TV's favorite psychiatrist Dr. Frasier Crane, Kelsy Grammer married his fourth wife, Kayte Walsh in 2010. Walsh was a former flight attendant and an avid fan of the classic comedy show where Grammer played the titular role.
Jerry Seinfeld | Jessica Sklar
Jessica Sklar was a PR executive and a huge Seinfeld fan. She met her hero at the Reebok Sports Club in 1998, and married him in 1999.
Jacqueline Titone | Adam Sandler
Jackie Sandler started off as a model who featured in bit roles in movies. She met Adam Sandler through actor Rob Schneider, and bagged a role in Sandler's movie, Big Daddy. The couple married in 2003, and Mrs. Sandler now featured frequently in her husband's movies.
Katie Holmes | Tom Cruise
Katie Holmes, in hindsight, may have bittersweet memories of her teenage years when she crushed on the Top Gun-era Tom Cruise, and hoped to marry him someday. Their 2006-2012 marriage made news all the while it lasted.
Conan O'Brien | Liza Powel
O'Brien met Liza Powel on the sets of Late Night with Conan O'Brien. She had appeared as a guest on his show, and the acclaimed comic confesses to have been smitten by Powel at first sight.
Julia Roberts | Daniel Moder
How does one marry a gorgeous actress who is also America's Sweetheart? It's really easy, if you ask Mr. Moder―you just become a cameraman on her next film. Julia Roberts and Daniel Moder married in 2002 and share 3 children.
So, you get the drift, don't you? Marrying a celebrity probably involves a lot of right place, right time kind of moments. Like any other marriage, it has its own pros and cons.
