We, regular people of Earth know the sweet-bitter feeling of unrequited love. And many times the targeted person is not even our type, nor is the right one. It’s simple chemistry.
Have you ever thought that even most popular celebrities cannot get everyone they long for? Here is a list of 15 stars who admittedly didn’t get who they crushed on.
1. Nicole Kidman and Jimmy Fallon
Years ago, one of Nicole Kidman’s friends set up a random date for her with the funny host of Tonight Show, realizing that Kidman liked the showman. However, Fallon didn’t seem to get it was an actual date, and later he told he never would have believed this could happen. He showed zero interest, and Kidman obviously assumed he wasn’t interested in her. She even made a joke that she was thinking he must be gay.
2. Ariana Grande and Jim Carrey
During a 2015 interview, Ariana Grande has admitted that ever since she was a little girl, Jim Carrey was her huge crush. Actually, her first screen name was the pretty talkative JimCarreyFan42. Her admiration was so intense that she couldn’t hold her tears back when she met Carrey in April 2014.
3. Adele and Rihanna
Last year, Time Magazine released a list of the 100 most influential people of 2018. Rihanna, the queen of dancehall and pop music, also the face of activism for domestic violence victims, made the list. Adele, another powerful member of the music industry with a genius voice, wrote her profile in a tone that radiates great respect and admiration.
4. Reese Witherspoon and Johnny Depp
Back in time, when Reese Witherspoon was just a tween with dreams, she had a big one named Johnny Depp. Witherspoon admitted it during an interview in 2012 “I have to say I was in a major crush on Johnny Depp in the movie 21 Jump Street. I covered my bedroom wall with posters of him” she said, laughing.
5. Ryan Gosling and Britney Spears
Ryan Gosling’s crush on Britney Spears started years ago when they were kids starring in The Mickey Mouse Club. That period ended and they never dated. After years they unexpectedly had a reunion at The Ellen DeGeneres Show, but the old spark didn’t ignite.
6. Jennifer Lawrence and Timothee Chalamet
Jennifer Lawrence seems to be pretty romantic in the soul. She admitted in an interview in 2018 that she thinks Timothee Chalamet is really talented and hot and that she happily would “butter him up”. This was actually her reaction to Chalamet’s performance in the film Call Me By Your Name together. Chalamet only comment was that it’s a real honor from a star like Jennifer.
7. Dwayne Johnson and Rachel McAdams
While “The Rock” has been in a happy marriage with Lauren Hasian for years and the couple have two beautiful daughters, he admitted he does have an innocent celeb crush on Rachel McAdams starring in the movie Notebook. He, however, is not afraid of his wife’s anger, as he quickly added, laughing: “This is where I’m going to stop”.
8. Lena Dunham and Jimmy Fallon
Jimmy Fallon seems to be quite popular among celebrities. Is it because of its compelling humorous style or his charming face? Who knows. One thing we know: Lena Dunham from the HBO series Girls admitted during an interview with Fallon back in 2012 openly admitted she’d had a crush on him for quite a while.
9. Harry Styles and Lindsay Lohan
One Direction member Harry Styles didn’t even try to hide his crush on star Lindsay Lohan when he one night showed up at her hotel room totally unexpected at a very strange hour for dating: at two o’clock in the morning. The most awkward part of the story is that Lohan didn’t recognize him, as Styles only told his last name. She had already been sleeping, and in her large hotel rope, she felt messy anyway, so she quickly said goodbye and went back to sleep.
10. Helen Mirren and Vin Diesel
Helen Mirren admitted in a talk show in 2015 that once he saw Vin Diesel giving a speech, and she was absolutely amazed how smart and funny he is. She actually fell in love with him for a minute. The star also spoke about her passion for stunt driving, and Diesel in his reaction immediately visualized her to be part of the next Fast and Furious movie.
11. Josh Hutcherson and Emma Watson
Josh Hutcherson Hunger Games star had not only a single crush on Emma Watson, but he openly spoke about trying to organize a meeting (or date?) with her through their managers. At last, his dream came true, however, they were not only the two of them. They were hosting the 2012 MTV Movie Awards together, with millions of people watching them.
12. Ashton Kutcher and Jennifer Aniston
Ashton Kutcher gave a hilarious interview a few years ago, where he admitted he’s had a crush on Jennifer Aniston when he was a teenager. Back then, he used to have a photo of Aniston as a screensaver on his computer. He also had a very funny bet with a friend of $1,000 that he is going to go out for a date with the star. Well, he seems to have lost that money, the date never happened.
13. Diane Keaton and Channing Tatum
Diane Keaton has a nice and long list of celebrity men who she has dated over the last fifty years and now, at the age of 69, she has turned her sight towards Magic Mike star Channing Tatum. She spoke about her crush on in a hilarious interview on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, and that she is ready to marry him. The only problem is that Tatum already has a wife.
14. Christian Bale and Drew Barrymore
Christian Bale and Drew Barrymore have known each other for quite some time. They both were young Hollywood star candidates when they actually went on a date. Bale told in an interview in 2012 that they watched a horrible horror movie and Barrymore never called him again. Barrymore at one point also revealed the story, telling that even though he was cute, at that time guys were secondary in her life.
15. Meryl Streep and Will Ferrell
Meryl Streep’s name is well known by the whole world, she is well-respected even among celebrities. Hearing in one of her interviews that she had a crush on Will Ferrell did sound strange to everyone. She revealed she liked him in every movie, and that for her he is a real man.
