While it makes sense that a lot of celebs get together with their fellow peers in the limelight (after all, who can understand that level of fame besides someone else who has it?), the below couples chose true love over everything.

Basically, this gallery is proof-positive that all us ~normals~ totally have a chance with the celeb of our choice. Seriously: You never know!
