Who hasn’t had a crush on a celebrity? They’re beautiful, rich, charismatic, and they seem so far above the rest of us “mere mortals,” that one hardly expects to ever see, or meet, or actually exchange words with their idol. Having a romantic relationship with one of them does seem rather far-fetched. After all, celebrities only ever go out with other celebrities, right? Well, apparently, that’s not always the case. And for some of them, meeting a fan turned out to be meeting their half-orange. Ah, love at first sight. So romantic!
