Posted by PZ on September 10th, 2020

Romance isn’t dead – and even celebrities have a romantic side! These 5 stories of how star couples met are adorable and sweet. Some crossed paths during their childhood and miraculously met again later on in life. Others bumped into each other on set, or had a meeting completely by chance that changed everything in moments. Here are their romantic stories of how they met.

Carey Mulligan & Marcus Mumford


Carey and Marcus were pen pals during childhood and both went on to be famous, later finding each other again and marrying. Carey commented that now, they still write love letters to each other: “I think they’re becoming a lost art form, which is very sad. To have a love letter from someone, to hold it in your hand and know that you can keep it for your whole life… well that’s an amazing thing.”

David & Victoria Beckham

David turned on the tv and saw Victoria in a ‘Spice Girls’ video. He decided right then that he would try to win her over: “That’s the girl for me and I’m going to get her! She’s my idea of perfection. I knew that if she wanted me, we would be together forever.”

Matt Damon & Luciana Barroso

Matt met his wife completely by chance: “I decided to do this movie with the Farrelly brothers in 2002. I met with them and we talked about it. I made the decision to do that which was a big decision. We were supposed to shoot in Hawaii and then the movie got moved to Miami. I had never really hung out in Miami. One night in the middle of the shoot, the crew, a couple guys, said, “We’re going to get a beer somewhere.” I said, “I’m not really into it.” They said, “Come on,” and kind of dragged me along. We ended up at a bar where my wife was the bartender. I literally saw her across a crowded room, literally, and eight years and four kids later, that’s my life. I don’t know how else our paths would’ve crossed if that didn’t happen. If all those things didn’t happen.”

Tom Brady & Gisele Bundchen

Tom and Gisele were set up by a mutual friend. Tom explained: “This friend told me he knew a girl version of me,” Gisele added: “And he said to me he’d found a boy version of me.”

Will Smith & Jada Pinkett-Smith

They first met on the set of ‘The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air’ but it took several years for them to fall in love. Jada revealed: “After we had known each other for many years, we went out for dinner one night and I saw that he had grown from this lanky kid to this really responsible man. We started courting each other and our friendship turned into romance.”
