Even though the movies are still just movies, some of our favorite celebrities still have adorable meeting stories that seem like they leaped right off the big screen. Some of these couples made it through to the end, while others ended their romance. Either way, it doesn’t change the magical circumstances under which their paths first converged.
1. Will Smith and Jada Pinkett
The beautiful Jada Pinkett met Hollywood’s leading man Will Smith when she was just 19 and auditioning for “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.” They developed their friendship over the years, and one night, went out for dinner with friends, where Jada really saw the man Will had become. After that, it was history, and they’re still together. As they say, starting as friends really is the best!
2. John Legend and Chrissy Teigen
These two met while shooting a music video, and had a one night stand! Before that, she walked into his dressing room only to see him ironing his underwear. Neither of them knew they were “the one” at first, but it looks like the romance lasted, because they’re still happily married with the kids.
3. Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel
These two unfortunately didn’t make it for the long haul, but they were certainly glorious in their day! Just like Tom and Gisele, they met through friends, in what Timberlake calls a very “un-Hollywood-esque” way. He asked a friend if he could call her and ask her on a date. When Biel replied yes, Justin called her up on the phone — just like the olden, pre-Tinder days.
4. J.Lo and Alex Rodriguez
The most picturesque Latin couple ever met…in a parking lot. Where A.Rod was lost. That’s pretty much the last scenario that we’d expect these two glamorous human beings to meet at. Of course, they had been aware of each other and met several times previously. Also, during this meeting, she was dressed up as Harlee from “Shades of Blue” and he called her beautiful.
