Stars Who've Dated Normal People - E! Online (2024)


Necessary Realness: Celebrities Dating Civilians

It's a tale as old as time: Celebrity meetscivilian. They fall in love. The end.

OK, so it's not really a fable out of the story books we all grew up on, but it is the stuff of modern fairy tales that actually happen IRL.

Last year, Zac Efron made headlines when he became thelatest male star to take on the role of Prince Charming after he was photographed holding hands with his new love interest. The twist? She was notan actressor a TikTok influencer,but just a regularol' human being who justhappened to be the living embodiment ofhope to millions of women around the world. (Alas, their relationship ended after less than a year. But still, it happened!)

Of course, The Greatest Showman actor is far from the first celeb to fall for a normal person with no ties to the industry, though it is somewhat of a rarity.

Another former Disney star once made headlines for dating his biggest fan, while a Jonas brother didn't have to travel to the year 3000 to find his soul mate—he just had to go on a family vacation.
