Celebrity couples that met on blind dates! From Thor’s romance to a princess fairytale turned reality
8. Cameron Diaz & Benji Madden
These two met when Benji showed up to her dinner party, which she was hosting with Nicole Richie and Joel Madden, Benji’s brother. She later stated about seeing him for the first time, “The first thing I said when I first met my [would be] husband was, ‘He’s hot.’” They started dating in May 2014, and by that October, Cameron’s ring made fans believe they were already engaged. They got married in January 2015. Benji wrote a heartfelt message to Cameron on her forty-sixth birthday that said, “Thank you for being the best friend and partner to me and taking this journey of marriage The way you live your life every day, and your compassion for the world shines thru in your eyes and you inspire me to want to be the best man I can be in this lifetime.”
7. Joe Manganiello & Sofia Vergara
This couple met by accident at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner in May 2014. After he found out that Sofia was indeed single, he reached out to her co-star, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, for her phone number. After that, he traveled to New Orleans to take her out for their first date. Soon after they started seeing each other, Vergara told Good Morning America the funny story about their first meeting, noting, “He smelled me and couldn’t help himself. That’s all you need, if you want Joe.” It might seem like a joke, but Joe had previously said to People, “I’m big into smell. It’s funny I got cast as a werewolf. There’s something about the smell on that part of a woman’s neck where it meets the jaw… It’s heaven.” After they officially got together, he proposed on Christmas Eve. They tied the knot in November 2015, and have been happily married ever since.
