We can all help a little more when trying to meet our future partners, and celebrities are no exception. While the outcome of blind dates is often uncertain, they allowed these famous people to meet their future boyfriends. Although some have broken up, many others have found the loves of their lives after being set up by friends.
We are romantics at heart, which is why we’ve made a list of 6 famous couples who found love thanks to their friends’ matchmaking skills.
Celebrity Couples Who Met on a Blind Date
Salma Hayek and François-Henri Pinault
In a 2015 interview, Salma Hayek admitted that her first meeting with the French businessman did not start very well. Since her friends knew that the actress would not like to go on a date, they said that she was invited to an event.
But when she arrived, she realized that there was only one other person there, her future husband, François. Fortunately, the date ended well as they are now married and have a daughter together.
Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones
The 2 actors who even share birthdays were introduced by Danny DeVito at the 1998 premiere of Catherine’s film The Mask of Zorro. But when they met, neither of them had a very good impression of the other.
It also took the matchmaking skills of another famous couple for Catherine and Michael to finally hit it off at a private dinner.
Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt
Although they only started dating in 1998, Jennifer and Brad first crossed paths in 1994, courtesy of their agents, who were good friends. When both actors became single a few years later, their agents decided to establish a new relationship with them, and this led to their 7-year romance and eventually their marriage.
Anne Hathaway and Adam Shulman
The actress and her jewelry designer and producer husband are another famous couple on the list who met on a blind date. Anne and Adam were brought together by their mutual friends, but neither of them seemed to have regretted it.
As of now, they have been married for almost a decade and have welcomed 2 children together.
Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen
Before Tom Brady met his future wife, his friend told him that he had found the “female version” of him. But actually this was the third blind date that Gisele’s friends had arranged for her.
The supermodel revealed in an interview that for some reason her friends thought they really needed to find her a boyfriend. But when she met the quarterback, they instantly hit it off and have been together ever since.
Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake
Jessica and Justin were introduced by the actress’s co-star, Beverley Mitchell, at the Golden Globes. The proud matchmaker revealed that the soon-to-be spouses formed a connection as soon as they met and started flirting with each other. The famous couple has been together for more than a decade.
