Here Are Celebrities Who Happily Married (and Mated With) Fans and Non Celebrities

So you're saying there's a chance? There was for Matt Damon's wife.

Not all celebrities are interested in being with their own kind. Some keep a semblance of a “normal” life, choosing a civilian partner (usually still extremely good looking) to spend their life with. Here are some of the lucky ones who landed someone with a bunch of money and never have to work again if they don’t want to, although it’s worth noting that most of these people do have their own successful careers.

Matt Damon wife Luciana Barroso had the luckiest bartending shift of all time the night the actor walked in to her Miami club. 

“We ended up at a bar where my wife was the bartender. I literally saw her across a crowded room,” Matt has said. “I don’t know how else our paths would have crossed if that didn’t happen. The moral is that when you’re tired, suck it up and go to the bar because you might meet your wife.”

The two had a no frills wedding in 2005 at New York City Hall. They renewed their wedding vows in 2013.

Breaking Bad star Aaron Paul met his wife, anti-bullying activist Lauren Parsekian, at Coachella. “She just wants the world to be a better place,” Aaron told Elle. “Our first date after Coachella was a trip to Vegas. We bought our first child a baby leather jacket from AllSaints. We also jumped into a cab and said, ‘Take us to the nearest chapel. We're getting married.’ The Little White Chapel ended up being closed. We probably would have gone through with it. It would have been a pretty funny story. But I'm happy we got married when we did — a year later.” The two married in September 2016.

Stephen Colbert spoke on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert about how he knew his wife, Evelyn McGee-Colbert, was the woman he was going to marry. “When you met the woman who is now your wife, how did you know she was the one?” an audience member asked.

“Oh, man, I will — how long do we have?” Colbert joked. The two, who have been married since 1993, have three children, John, Peter and Madeleine.
