Celebrities - they're just like us. Sometimes they marry their high school sweetheart and other times their fairy-tale endings are left in the hands of a blind date. While celeb couples who met their significant other on a blind date don't always last, some of Hollywood's most memorable duos were set up by their famous friends. John Krasinski found his Pam Beesly in Emily Blunt when Ann Hathaway put on her Miranda Priestly-approved matchmaking gloves post-The Devil Wears Prada. After her friend set her up with British royalty, Meghan Markle became a literal princess in May 2018, and Salma Hayek met her businessman beau on a total surprise setup. Even Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds met on an accidental blind date before they had a secret wedding in 2012.
Not all of the famous people who met their partners on a blind date found forever true love, however. Jennifer Aniston managed to strike out twice - first after meeting Brad Pitt through her agent, then meeting Justin Theroux through Ben Stiller. Maybe third time's the charm?
Celebrities who found true love (at least for a while) on a blind date give the rest of us hope that in the savage dating pool of Hollywood, sometimes a friend can help light the spark, even if it doesn't always last.
