Celebrities are just like us, except have a lot more money, and apparently way cuter “how we met” stories than us. Here are the stories of how 8 famous couples met to make you go ‘awwwww’.

1. Reese Witherspoon and husband Jim Toth 

The pair met when he rescued her from his drunken friend at a party. Reese said she was at a friend's house when a very drunk guy started hitting on her. Jim stepped in and explained that his friend was going through a bad breakup, and Reese was impressed by how great of a pal he was for doing so - and the rest is history.

2. Andy Samberg and wife Joanna Newsom

Andy met his wife backstage at one of her concerts because he was a HUGE fan of hers. Their mutual friend, Fred Armisen, introduced them and Andy says he saw "heart bubbles" when she immediately recognized him from the ‘Just 2 Guyz’ Lonely Island video.


3. Emily Blunt and her husband John Krasinski 

Emily’s friend, who knew John, noticed him across the restaurant while the girls were out for dinner. He'd been having dinner with Justin Theroux but decided to come over and talk to them for a while. "He didn't eat, he just stood there and made me laugh,” said Emily.


4. Chrissy Teigen and John Legend

Chrissy Teigen met John Legend on the set of his ‘Stereo’ music video. Chrissy said that she was so surprised to meet him while he was ironing his clothes - in his underwear - that she gave him a hug. After they filmed the music video they went to his hotel room, enjoyed some takeaway burgers and, well… we don’t know what happened but they’re happily together now so...

5. Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka

This adorable pair met in passing on a street corner in NYC through a mutual friend, who Neil thought David was dating at the time. They didn’t think much of the meeting at the time, but years later David proposed to Neil on the very street corner they met on. Awwwww.

6. Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds

The ultimate power couple got close on the set of Green Lantern but were both in relationships at the time. A year later, they went on a double date - with other people - but couldn't deny that the chemistry between the two of them was waaaay stronger. Ryan explained that he finally realised the crazy chemistry the pair had on that date, and he started to think of her as more than a friend. You really can’t deny how compatible these two are. 

7. Samira Wiley and Lauren Morelli

These two felt an instant connection when they met on the set of Orange Is The New Black to discuss Samira's character in an episode Lauren was writing. Nothing romantic happened between them to begin with, but Lauren says Samira was crucial to helping her understand her sexuality during a very hard time in her life. How special <3

Sarah Hyland and Wells Adams

Sarah full-on fan-girled Wells, with the pair meeting on Twitter when Sarah often posted about him on Bachelor In Paradise. She thought he was funny and it turned out that Wells was a fan of Modern Family too, so he tweeted back, slid into her DMs, and they agreed to meet up for drinks and tacos the next time they were both in LA.
