No matter who you are, you have a celebrity crush. Whether it's someone you grew up idolizing or in my case, they're just someone who has all the qualities you admire *cough cough Jake Gyllenhaal*, we all dream about dating someone in the public eye.
I know it seems impossible that a celebrity as big as Justin Bieber would fall in love with you, however, it is very possible. So many celebrities have dated their fans, and it's turn out well for most. I mean, I don't really suggest stalking them until they fall in love with you. But being in the right place at the right time (aka one of their favourite coffee shops) really can't hurt. So here are 12 celebrities that have dated their fans, so that you don't lose hope.
Kim Kardashian & Kanye West
I know this one seems crazy, but Kanye West was actually a huge fan of Kim Kardashian before they started dating. He said in an interview that "I knew I just wanted her to be my girl for a long time", and even drew himself onto the Kardashian Christmas card one year. He even mispronounced her last name when asking about her for the first time, pronouncing it 'Kard-dijon'.
Tom Cruise & Katie Holmes
Even though their marriage didn't last, Katie Holmes used to state in interviews even before she met him that she wanted to marry him. She never thought how she would marry him, she just knew. She confidently used what's known as the Law of Attraction, and boom. They met in 2005 and married in 2006, and we all know the interview where Tom Cruise jumps on Oprah's couch because of how much he loves Katie Holmes. That's goals.
Jake T. Austin & Danielle Caesar
Danielle Caesar is living every fangirls dream. She tweeted him for years, telling him that she would marry him and that she adored him, and then he followed her. After years of that, she met him at an autograph signing and stole his heart. The rest is history and this makes all of my dreams about dating Jake Gyllenhaal way more realistic.
Conan O'Brien & Liza Powel
Conan O'Brien spotted his now wife in the audience while taping an episode of Late Night with Conan O'Brien. He states she caught his eye because she was so beautiful, and that somewhere NBC has a tape of him literally falling in love on TV.
Jessica Alba & Cash Warren
Jessica Alba and Cash Warren met when he was a production assistant on Fantastic Four in 2004. He had been a fan of hers for years, and ever since then they've been married with two kids and a baby on the way!
Joe Jonas dating a bunch of fans
Joe Jonas said in an interview that he used to take advantage of being famous, and would date a ton of fans. He once invited a fan to a movie and doesn't remember what the movie was because they made out the entire time.
John Travolta & Kelly Preston
Even though they're both famous now, Kelly Preston always had a crush on John Travolta, especially in Grease. She remembers coming out of a movie and seeing a poster for it, and saying "I'm going to marry that man". They've been happily married since 1991!

The Hanson brothers dating fans
Okay, some of you may not know who the Hanson brothers are. Just think of the song MMMBop. Yes, that was them. Anyways. All three of the Hanson brothers met their wives at their own concerts. Nikki Hanson, who is married to Isaac Hanson, said that it was the type of thing that happens in movies.
Anne Hathaway & Adam Shulman
Anne and Adam met through mutual friends in 2008, however he had been a huge fan of hers for years before that. They began dating and have one son together. How cute?!
Matt Damon & Luciana Barroso
Matt Damon was filming a movie called Stuck on You in 2003 and he hid behind the bar of the restaurant that his now wife was working at to shield from fans. She obviously knew who he was, and helped him escape, but they began dating and now have four children together!
Billie Joe Armstrong & Adrienne Nesser
The lead singer of Green Day met his wife at one of his concerts, and she was a huge fan. They've been married since 1994 and have two sons together. I guess the moral of this article is you can totally meet your future spouse at one of their concerts.
Justin Bieber has said he would date a fan
Even though it hasn't been confirmed yet that he's actually dated a fan, he's been known to slide into the DM's of girls he finds attractive. Better yet? They're random girls who are totally fans. He loves to hang out with fans after his shows, so there is no doubt that he would be down to date one.
Niall Horan would as well
Move over, Harry Styles. Niall Horan has said in an interview that he's not opposed to the idea. He said if the right one came along, that anything is possible.
