We all have our favorite celebrity couples, but not all A-listers marry other famous people. The Hollywood dating pool is pretty impenetrable, but stars fall in love with civilians every once in a blue moon, proving there’s hope for us all! So, join us as we learn more about these normies who married celebs, how they met, and what keeps them together… so we mere mortals can keep dreaming!

Matt Damon and Luciana Damon

Ben Affleck famously dated Jennifer Lopez, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jennifer Garner, and Ana de Armas. But his best buddy Matt Damon is much more down to earth. While filming Stuck on You in 2003, crew members dragged Matt to a Miami establishment.

There, the Bostonian actor met bartender Luciana Barroso, and it was love at first sight. “I got lucky,” he explained, “I fell in love with a civilian.” The two married in 2005 and have three daughters, Isabella, Stella, and Gia Zavala. Matt also adopted Luciana’s daughter, Alexia.

Gal Gadot and Yaron Varsano

The world’s luckiest man, real estate mogul Yaron Varsano met Gal Gadot at a yoga party in the Israeli desert. The Wonder Woman star explained, “It was all about yoga, chakras, and eating healthy—we didn’t exactly find ourselves there, but we found each other.”

She continues, “He told me on our second date he was serious and wasn’t going to wait more than two years to ask me to marry him. Fast-forward two years, he proposed. We were married in 2008.” They have three daughters, Alma, Maya, and Daniella.

Keanu Reeves and Alexandra Grant

Sorry ladies, Keanu Reeves is taken. The John Wick actor met visual artist Alexandra Grant at a dinner party in 2009. They grew closer in 2011 when Alexandra wrote a book for Keanu called Ode to Happiness, which she described as “a playful guide to climbing out of depression.”

Keanu was so impressed that they collaborated on two books together. They became an item around 2018 but kept their relationship under wraps for months. Paparazzi recently confused Keanu’s mom for silver-haired Alexandra!

Idris Elba and Sabrina Dhowre

English beefcake Idris Elba shot to fame on The Wire and as BBC detective John Luther. In 2017, he was filming The Mountain Between Us with Kate Winslet in Vancouver, Canada, when he saw gorgeous Somali-Canadian model Sabrina Dhowre and fell head over heels. They married in an extravagant Moroccan ceremony two years later.

As a model and occasional actress, Sabrina isn’t necessarily a normie. Still, we’re pretty sure Idris would’ve fallen in love with her anyway, even if she was a street sweeper!
