Love at first sight seems impossible, but these 5 stars all believe in it. Some say they have experienced it first hand, while others like to believe in it because it is such a romantic idea. Johnny Depp describes what he felt the moment he saw his long-term girlfriend Vanessa Paradis, while Tom Cruise says he instantly wanted to marry his now current wife Katie Holmes the moment he met her for the first time. These 5 deeply romantic stars all believe that love can happen in the blink of an eye – here is what they have to say about it.
Anne is a hopeless romantic which is why she wants to believe in love at first sight: “Why not? I think it’s a good thing to believe in, I think it’d be a shame if we didn’t have that, it’d be a lot less fun.”
Tom knew the second he met Katie Holmes that he wanted to marry her: “I knew that I wanted to marry her after the first day I met her. What’s even more interesting is that Katie confessed that when she was a teenager she dreamt of marrying me. Doesn’t it seem incredible?”
Johnny believes it happened to him with his girlfriend Vanessa Paradis: “You have this feeling – I can’t really explain what it was, but I had it when I met Vanessa. I saw her across a room and I thought: ‘What’s happening to me?’ I had no way of knowing how great a person she was or how great a mother she would be. I can remember thinking the last thing in the world I wanted was a relationship, but it was impossible to escape. I was gone.”
George believes in love in an instant because that is what happened to his parents and they’re still together: “It happened to my parents. My father was emcee of the Miss Kentucky pagaent, and my mom was in it. He asked her on a date and asked her to marry him immediately. They’re still together so I know love at first sight can work.”
Ed believes in it, but also thinks there is much to be built upon after the first spark: “It’s incredible, it’s intoxicating. To fall in love with someone at first sight is fine, but in order to have a working relationship you need to realise that love is just one thing in a whole relationship.”
