9 Celebrities Who Found Their Extraordinary Love Stories In Normal People

Love feels the same whether you are a celeb or not. These stars fell in love with ordinary people from different walks of life. Their love is so strong that they have stood by each other from the day they met.

Celebrity romances are always topics that sell like hot cakes. We are all eager to know which celeb fell in love with whom. While most of them find love in the limelight, there are still quite a few who fall in love outside the pomp and show of the entertainment industry. After all, why would your partner's profession matter if they make you feel loved like no one else in the world? The feeling is the same regardless of whether they're a celebrity or someone who hasn't been in the spotlight.

Here are a few celebrities and their non-celebrity lovers:

1. Julia Roberts and Danny Moder

She may be known as America's sweetheart and starred in some of the biggest hits in the 90s. But the glam of the industry did not distract her from when she had found the one. Julia Roberts fell in love with cinematographer Danny Moder on the set of the 2001 film The Mexican. They got married in July 2002 and have lived a successful love life since then. 

2. Matt Damon and Luciana Barroso



 

The first time Matt Damon met the love of his life might as well be the plot of a movie. Luciana Barroso was a bartender at a joint the then 33-year-old actor had walked into while taking a break from shooting for Stuck on You in Miami. The love birds tied the knot in 2005 and have three daughters together. 

3. Jon Bon Jovi and Dorothea Bongiovi

He was one of the biggest heartthrobs of his time and can still make a woman go weak on her knees. But this pop star has been a committed man for the last 30 years. Bon Jovi married his high school sweetheart, Dorthea, whom he had fallen in love with at Sayreville War Memorial High School in their hometown in New Jersey.  At the peak of his career in 1989, they eloped to Las Vegas and were married by an Elvis impersonator.

4. George Clooney and Amal Clooney



 

The Hollywood heartthrob fell in love with a brilliant lawyer who many have said is just as successful, if more, as he is. The couple met at the actor's Lake Como home in July 2013 through a mutual friend. It may not have been a story fit for a movie, but for the actor, she was the one. They tied the knot in 2014 in an intimate Venetian ceremony. They welcomed their twins Ella and Alexander in 2017. 

5. Meryl Streep and Don Gummer

This divine love story started after the death of Meryl Streep's boyfriend John Cazale. Heartbroken by the death of the man she loved, she turned to her brother's friend for support. Little did she know then that the man who comforted her in her time of need would end up being the one she'd spend the rest of her life with. The couple fell in love and married in September 1978 and have been together ever since.

6. Prince William and Kate Middleton

You will rarely ever see a royal marry a "commoner", least of all if it's a prince born to be the king. Prince William met the love of his life in the most ordinary way you could think of. The first time he noticed Kate was at St Andrews University in 2002. While there was quite a bit of murmur surrounding the couple, William and Kate managed to keep their relationship under wraps until they were sure of each other. The couple had not only fallen hopelessly in love with each other but also went through a rough patch before realizing they wanted to spend the rest of their lives with each other. 

7.  Alec Baldwin and Hilaria Baldwin

There may be many stories out there of celebrities falling in love with each other but there are always the ones who will show you the glitz and glam of the entertainment industry hardly matters when it comes to love. And Alec Baldwin is one such actor. Baldwin, then 53, met Spanish yoga instructor, Hilaria at a restaurant in Manhattan in 2011. The couple fell in love and did not take long to realize they had found The One in each other. Married a year later, Baldwin and his wife have four children together.

The couple who bonded and fell in love later got married on December 25, 1999, in a Jewish ceremony in New York City.

9. Oprah Winfrey and Stedman Graham



 

The couple has been together for more than 30 years.
