15+ Celebrities Who Had Crushes on Other Stars

Most of us remember having celebrity crushes when we were children, and it’s totally fine to still do so as adults. Psychologists say most of such feelings are completely harmless, but they still warn that they can sometimes affect our current relationships negatively. But do celebrities have crushes on other stars? The answer is yes, and we gathered some examples in this article.

1. Chris Evan and Sandra Bullock

In an interview, the Captain America actor said, “I grew up with a big crush on Sandra Bullock. Speed was a big one. The whole movie, in general, did it for me.”

2. Harry Styles and Jennifer Aniston

During an appearance on The Ellen Degeneres Show in 2020, Harry Styles openly admitted that his first celebrity crush was on none other than Jennifer Aniston, the Friends star. The nature of the rapid-fire questions didn’t quench our thirst to know whether this crush is still alive or not, but we know that they would make an adorable couple.

3. Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon

Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon first met at the 2005 Teen Choice Awards when Cannon presented the singer with an award. Cannon revealed that he was fond of Carey before they even started dating. At the time, he couldn’t keep what he felt to himself, and in his interviews, he said only good things about her.

When Carey heard one of Cannon’s interviews, she approached him and he said to her, “They’re true! Just give me an opportunity to make them come true!”

No one believed that Cannon could be “the one” for Carey, but he proved them wrong, and 3 years after meeting each other, the couple tied the knot. Even though they split 6 years later, Carey and Nick remain friendly and continue to co-parent their twins, Moroccan and Monroe.

4. Zac Efron and Tyra Banks

Zac Efron said he had a crush on Tyra Banks growing up. He had a poster of the model on his wall when he was a young teenager. He said, “She was the only girl I had a crush on.”

Mila Kunis’s first-ever real kiss was with Ashton Kutcher on That ’70s Show when she was 14 years old. And even though Kunis always had a crush on Kutcher (even before their first kiss), it took them more than a decade to get together as a couple.

Better later than never, Kunis ended up marrying her first kiss in 2015, and now they have 2 kids together.

6. Cardi B and Robert Pattinson

Cardi B bumped into Robert Pattinson recently while attending an event in Beverly Hills and she couldn’t contain her excitement. She tweeted that this encounter made her feel like a teen. Clearly, Cardi B has been crushing on Robert Pattinson since the era of Twilight.

7. Daniel Radcliffe and Cameron Diaz

The Harry Potter star admitted to having a crush on Cameron Diaz. He said, “She is still high up on that list.”

8. Ariana Grande and Jim Carrey

“I love him so much,” Ariana Grande said, as she has been clear that her childhood and longtime crush has always been the beloved star of The Mask, Jim Carrey.

9. Hailey Bieber and Ryan Gosling

When asked about her celebrity crush, Hailey Bieber, before marrying Justin Bieber, confessed her massive crush on Ryan Gosling. She added that she dreamt about sitting beside him, staring at each other’s eyes, and falling in love.

10. Josh Duhamel and Fergie


Josh Duhamel had a crush on his now ex-wife, Fergie, before they even met. He played the spontaneous card and asked the producer to invite Fergie with her band, The Black Eyed Peas, to be guests at his show, Las Vegas. Needless to say, his plan worked, and they eventually started dating.

The couple got married in 2009, and in 2013 they welcomed their son, Axl. Unfortunately, Duhamel and Fergie separated 4 years later.

11. Justin Timberlake and Alyssa Milano

There used to be a lot of crushing going on between Justin Timberlake and Alyssa Milano. In the late ’80s and early ’90s, Milano starred in the television series, Who’s the Boss, and Timberlake binge-watched each and every episode of the show. The musician’s teenage fantasy came true in 2002 when they dated, but unfortunately, their romance ended in a breakup.

12. Emma Watson and Tom Felton

The co-stars who played on-screen enemies Hermione and Draco, respectively, have sparked romance rumors for years. “I remember using the familiar old line, ‘I love her like a sister.’ But there was more to it than that,” Felton said as he opened up about the “spark” he had with Emma Watson.

In return, the actress reflected on her past romantic feelings for her former co-star, saying, “I just don’t know how to say it — I just fell in love with him.” On the other hand, Watson clarified that nothing “ever, ever, ever happened romantically,” but that the pair “just love each other.”

13. Emma Stone and Leonardo DiCaprio

In an interview in 2014, when Joe Manganiello was asked what physical qualities he’s attracted to, he simply said, “Sofia Vergara, that’s it.”

Manganiello and Vergara dated for a year, and in 2015, they got married. In an interview in 2017, Manganiello was asked who his celebrity crush was, and without hesitation, he replied, “I actually got married to my celebrity crush.”

15. Jennifer Aniston and David Schwimmer

Did you know that Jennifer Aniston and David Schwimmer had crushes on each other while their characters, Rachel Green and Ross Geller, became romantically involved (because we didn’t)? Schwimmer shared that he had a significant crush on Aniston since the first season of Friends. But, like Rachel, Aniston didn’t reciprocate his crush until later. Even though the 2 stars knew about each other’s feelings, they chose to remain friends and channel their love for each other into the characters they played.

16. Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock

“I’m thinking of how sweet Keanu Reeves was, and how handsome he was. It was hard, it was hard for me to really be serious,” Sandra Bullock recalled while admitting her big crush on her co-star in Speed. And it turns out the feeling was reciprocated by Reeves. However, neither of them made their feelings known back then.

Who was your celebrity crush when you were growing up? If you had the chance, would you marry them now?
