Fangirls, rejoice! As you swoon and sigh over the latest Hollywood hottie (Justin Bieber! Niall Horan! Shawn Mendes!), understand one thing to be true: it is possible to date and marry your celeb crush. Below, read up on five times celebrities dated (or married!) their fans:
1. Jake T. Austin
Jake T. Austin gave fangirls everywhere hope for their own happily ever after when he began dating his own superfan, Danielle Caesar. Caesar cyberstalked The Fosters actor on Twitter for five years before they began dating.
"We're young and having fun just getting to know each other," the actor told People. "It doesn't matter how you meet someone — on set, in a coffee shop, in a coffee shop, at school or in the business. Sometimes you connect with people at the right moment and you just click."
2. Nicolas Cage
Nicolas Cage reportedly his third and current wife Alice Kim in 2004 while she was waistressing at an LA restaurant. Sources say she asked for his autograph, and he gave her his digits instead. Too cute!
Long before Josh Duhamel and Fergie met and fell in love, the actor told InStyle magazine that he had a naughty dream about the Black Eyed Peas singer. Some time later, the two managed to meet up in Las Vegas. There, Duhamel used a super smooth pick-up line to seduce his future wife.
"I said, in this desperate voice, 'You're hot!'" Duhamel recalls of the meet-cute. "Ths crush of a lifetime, and that was my life. But then she replied... 'How was I in your dream?'"
The pair have been married since 2009 and have one child together, Axl Jack.
4. Tom Cruise
Katie Holmes grew up during Tom Cruise's prime acting years — and understably, she harbored a pretty serious crush on the dreamboat. In 2004, Holmes — who was engaged to actor Chris Klein at the time — told reporters that "every little girl dreams about her wedding. I used to think I was going to marry Tom [Cruise.]"
Two years later, she did marry him, though they divorced in 2012.
5. John Travolta
Kelly Preston knew she'd end up with John Travolta one day. According to The Frisky, she predicted her marriage to the Hollywood stud as a teenager. "I did have sort of a flash," she said. "I came out of a film, saw the poster for Grease and I knew I'd be with him. I just knew. I was about 16 years old. I really knew it, and it turned into 'I'm going to marry that man."
