You always hear about all kinds of meet-cutes and stories of how couples met for the first time. It can be sweet, funny, weird, or even bad, but all these stories have a similar ending. They got together. If you’re curious about how these celebrity couples have gotten together, you’ve come to the right place! Read on to find out how your favorite celebrity couple met.
Emma Stone and Dave McCary
The now-married couple met for the first time in December 2016 on the set of Saturday Night Live. Emma was hosting an episode and Dave was the director for one particularly hilarious sketch she was in. Over four years later, Dave went back to the place they’d met to pop the question in 2019. The couple got married quietly in 2020 and are now happily living together while expecting their first child together. As with many private couples, there isn’t much to say about these two.
Jonathan Van Ness and Mark Peacock
The Queer Eye star, Jonathan Van Ness, is another celebrity who quietly got married this past year. He and Mark Peacock began seeing each other at the end of 2019 after they’d met in London. Jonathan opened up about their romance on his Instagram, saying, “We went on a date in London, which turned into more dates whilst I was on a comedy tour”. It wasn’t long before Mark moved from London to the U.S. to be with Jonathan, and the couple looks as happy as can be!
Miranda Kerr and Evan Spiegel
Miranda Kerr and Evan Spiegel, who got married in 2017, spoke about the first time they met in a joint interview. They had met at a 2014 Louis Vuitton even in New York City. Well, Miranda had to make the first move. The two were seated next to each other at the party, so Miranda started a conversation with Evan. They exchanged numbers, but a month had passed and Miranda still hadn’t heard from Evan. She reached out to him. Evan has said, “I thought I had no chance [with her], so I wasn’t going to waste my time”.
Scarlett Johansson and Colin Jost
Colin Jost released a memoir in 2020, in which he dishes about how he met his wife, Scarlett Johansson. These two met for the first time in 2006 when Scarlett hosted Saturday Night Live for the first time and Colin was a writer on the show. However, they hadn’t started dating until 2017, when Scarlett hosted SNL for the fifth time! Things must have been great because Scarlett and Colin got married in 2020.
Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell
Back in 1983, Goldie and Russell were shooting a WWII-era movie, Swing Shift. Kurt had played a trumpet player in the movie, but according to Goldie, his moves needed some work. So Goldie suggested they go somewhere to dance to swing music. In a 2017 interview, Kurt said, “The Playboy Club was the only place that had that, we went to the Playboy Club and I just, immediately, was having a great time with this girl, Goldie… [But] there was no place to dance.” They both agreed that the night wasn’t over yet, and just like that, they became an item. The two are still together today!
Jason Momoa and Lisa Bonet
In a 2017 interview, Jason opened up about the moment he became enamored with his now-wife, Lisa. While he was 8 years old at the time, he knew that someday, they would be together. Fast forward to 2005, and he and Lisa finally met at a jazz club, “right place, right time” Jason said. When she introduced herself, he was overjoyed. At the time, Jason had been living in a hotel and had no car, so he convinced her to take him home. They ended up in a Cafe and hit it off.
Justin Bieber and Hailey Bieber
The famous married couple met a while back, in 2009, at a concert Justin did on the Today Show. Haley was 13 years old and Justin was 15. Hailey has spoken about how she “was never a superfan, of him or of anyone”. Her father and Justin’s mother became friends after that concert. It wasn’t until years later that Hailey and Justin got closer. They actually dated briefly in 2015 and 2016 but rekindled their romance three years later – for good. The couple eloped in 2018.
Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra
After less than two months of dating, Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra got engaged. However, they had met earlier than that. Nick sent Priyanka a DM in September 2016 and soon the two were texting. They met in person several months later at the Vanity Fair Oscar party in 2017. They met up for a drink a few months later, but they were both so busy that it took another year until they went on a proper date. Finally, on May 25, 2018, the couple went on a date and have been together ever since. Nick and Priyanka got married in 2018.
Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher
Everyone knows that Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher met on the set of That ’70s Show when they were co-stars in the late ’90s. But that’s not how they got together romantically. In 2012, things began to shift for the two stars and they got attracted to each other. They began to see each other – casually – for three months. Neither wanted anything serious. But soon enough, one of them developed feelings, and the other soon followed. They got engaged and had their first child together in 2014 and got married in 2015.
Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas
Before she met Joe Jonas, Game of Thrones actress Sophie Turner was not a fan of his band, The Jonas Brothers. Before these two even met, it seems like everyone who knew them both thought they would get along. In 2016, a producer on one of her movies who knew the Jonas Brothers told her “You should meet Joe Jonas. I feel like you would really get along with this guy.” Not long after, another person told her the same. Finally, Joe messaged Sophie later that year on Instagram to meet up. Once they met, they ended up talking for hours. The rest, as they say, is history. Now, the married couple has a child together!
