7 Celebrity Couples' 'How We Met' Stories That Are Too Sweet To Believe
By Denny Directo
Everybody can appreciate a good love story.
There's the old fashioned way of meeting someone at a bar or a blind date, but then there are some adorable first encounters that would even give Nicholas Sparks a run for his money. With Valentine's Day just around the corner, we uncovered the "how we met" love stories for seven of Hollywood's biggest celebrity couples that are almost too sweet to believe.
You would think an NFL hunk and supermodel would have absolutely no problem dating. Well, as it turns out the pair was first introduced by a mutual friend who set them up on a blind date. Naturally, sparks flew and it was a perfect match. The world's most beautiful couple became official when they said "I do" in February 2009.
2. David Beckham & Victoria Beckham
The former soccer stud reportedly fell in love with his future wife after seeing her in the Spice Girls' "Say You'll Be There" music video. The two became one in 1999 and they've been an international power couple ever since. Talk about the power of Posh Spice!
3. Will Smith & Jada Pinkett-Smith
Jada first met Will when she was just 19, during an audition on the set of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. But it was several years later before they met again and became an item. "After we had known each other for many years, we went out for dinner one night and I saw that he had grown from this lanky kid to this really responsible man," Jada told YourTango. "We started courting each other and our friendship turned into romance."
4. Jim Toth & Reese Witherspoon
The talent agent met his future wife while apologizing for his drunk friend who had been hitting on her. The moral of this story: never be drunker than your friends. You might meet the love of your life.
5. Matt Damon & Luciana Barroso
Matt met his wife Luciana at a bar in Miami Beach in 2003, while shooting the movie Stuck On You. She was bartending and Matt recalled, "I literally saw her across a crowded room." Awwwwww-- love at first sight!
Kate Moss met rocker husband Jamie Hince thanks to a good old fashioned Google search. She was googling men (you know, for fun!) and stumbled on Hince. She liked his look and in 2011, she married him. Who needs Tinder?
7. Carey Mulligan & Marcus Mumford
This one will give you all the feels. Actress Carey Mulligan and singer Marcus Mumford (Mumford and Sons) have been married since 2012, but get this: the two grew up as childhood pen pals. After each became famous they met as adults and fell in love.
