4 Great Examples Of Successful 'Celebrity And Non-Famous Person' Marriages
Psychologically, celebrities have some crucial differences in comparison to ordinary people; that’s why it can be a bit problematic for both to date. However, isn't it a dream for a usual person to date someone like Brad Pitt or Jennifer Lawrence?
Celebrity + ordinary = love
Despite the differences that may cause struggles in relationships, there are some examples of celebrity and non-celebrity dating and even creating a happy family. Let's have a closer look at such couples:
Reese Witherspoon and Jim Toth
An Academy Award-winning actress, Reese Witherspoon, met a talent agent, Jim Toth, through a mutual friend at a party in LA. On March 26, they will celebrate their seventh wedding anniversary.
Eddie Redmayne and Hannah Bagshawe
Eddie, an Oscar-winning actor, met his future non-famous wife when he was attending Eton College. Hannah is the financial publicist. The couple married in 2014 and is currently expecting their second child.
George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin
We all know George, right? However, his wife is not a famous person. She is a human rights lawyer and a proud mother of twins – Alexander and Ella. The couple married in 2014.
Prince William and Kate Middleton
Although Kate doesn’t have blue blood, that didn’t stop Harry from marrying her. The couple tied the knot on April 29, 2011. At the end of the day, Kate Middleton is doing an awesome job at being not only a respectable member of the British royal family but also a great mother to her two children. The couple is now waiting for their third child to arrive.
Why is it hard to date a celebrity?
The funny thing about celebrities is that they are completely far away from comprehending the life of a common man, for instance, an ordinary baker or a simple engineer. It works both ways actually because there’s no such baker in any town who would have the same kind of problems as a famous person has. Let’s see 4 main reasons experts have discovered:
1. An extreme level of pressure
It is unbelievably hard to live a life under the spotlight. Just think about it, your every word would be documented and posted on social media. Imagine the level of pressure famous people have because of the fear of doing everything perfectly. If a celebrity makes a mistake, everybody would know that and remember for a long period of time. That can make a huge impact on your career.
2. Everybody tries to break celebrities.
Do you remember “The Fappening”? Thousand of leaked photos of nude celebrities appeared on the internet. Living with the idea of people trying to break your image is terrifying as hell. It’s like constantly feeling insecure.
3. Most celebrities are stuck in patterns.
Once you get famous for doing something, you’ll almost be forced to repeat it over and over again. Because if you don’t, the chances are high that people will just forget about your existence. For this exact reason so many awesome child actors kind of lost it. They just grew up and cannot play child roles anymore.
4. Secret identity
An FBI agent can be strict and grumpy at his work, while actually being the nicest dad, loving husband, and cheerful person at home. Just like that agent, celebrities wear masks, mainly because it is their job. They cover everything people don’t want to see and show their polished looks to society. However, underneath the mask of our beloved actor, we might see dozens of demons there.
It is totally possible for a celebrity to date a common person. However, it requires having not only strong feelings for each other but also a strong will to understand the differences.
