Ok, so truly there’s no way to totally confirm these stories, obviously. Just wanted to get that out of the way up front. But these stories are entertaining to read anyway, and that makes it fun, right? Let’s give the benefit of the doubt and just assume that some really are true. Who knows – maybe they’re all true.
Anyway, here are some stories about regular people dating celebrities back when they too were just regular people. Robert Downey Jr, Sara Gilbert, and even Monica Lewinsky. The point of the stories was to sort of identify what sort of person they were before they were famous. Surprisingly a lot of them were really nice. Adam Sandler for example remembered someone 20 years later enough to congratulate them on retirement, which is pretty cool. Without further ado, let’s get to the stories, which are just straight quotes off of Reddit.
Anyway, you get the point. You can find some more curated comments here, and all of the original ones plus more here. Have you ever dated a celebrity? A friend? Who were they, and what were they like?
