5 Stars Who Find Dating Other Celebrities Hard

Posted by PZ on November 5th, 2012

These 5 stars have all admitted that it can be hard to date other famous people that they meet while working. Some find it easy at the beginning but when they are constantly separated from their other half because of being on set far away from them, they start to realize it’s hard. Others say it is difficult to even find the right person because they only meet a limited number of people during their work. Some just don’t like to date other famous people because of the media hype that will surround them when the news gets out.

Ashley Greene

Ashley finds it hard because she’s not in one place for long enough: “I’m always here and there – everyone in my industry is – and that’s why a lot of relationships are fleeting. I’ve gotten very good at detaching whenever I have to go away for three months, which I realise is hard on friends and kind of selfish… You go on a couple of dates, and then someone ships off to do a movie. It’s not like you’re going to fly out and see them, because it’s not serious enough for that.”

Rashida Jones

Rashida believes the traveling and time apart can destroy a relationship between two famous people: “Not to be cynical, but there is what my friend likes to call the “actor factor,” where you’re on the set and you’re away and it’s cold and you’re connecting emotionally. You kind of fall in love with yourself in the eyes of this other person. It’s sweet because it reflects this want for romance and a relationship, but let’s look at the statistics: In general, they’re not pretty great, but for actors, it’s pretty hard to make that work for a long period of time. And then the next time you’re in a cold place and you want to connect with somebody, you’re not near your husband or wife, and you’ll want to connect with somebody else.”

January Jones

January finds it hard because often those who ask her out are cold and do it through her agent: “I’m in and out of town and I’m not surrounded by anyone but actors, so it is difficult especially for a smalltown girl who’s not necessarily looking for another actor. I’ve had the random someone have their agent contact my agent to ask me out and that’s so bad. If that’s the way we have to ask people on dates.”

Denise Richards

Denise finds the media buzz surrounding any new celeb relationship the hardest: “I think dating in general is hard when you’re in the public eye and when you have children – I don’t bring a lot of different men around my children. It (press attention) makes dating difficult – if you’re out in public with someone for dinner, the media are like, ‘Who is the mystery man, who are you dating?’ so it does get tricky, but it is what it is.”

Chace Crawford

Chace says there are limited people that he encounters so it’s harder to find the right person: ‘I’m totally sort of just doing my thing. I’m never really looking. I guess if something comes along…Sometimes the pool is smaller because you hang out with five people as opposed to when you’re in college or a job. It might be harder to meet a girl who is not in the industry. I’m open to anything. It makes it interesting.”
