Love is blind, they say. You can’t tell the heart who to love, they say. But when the love bug hits you, whatever they say will be staring at you in the face. So what if you fall in love with someone who seems not right for you. For some people, that is. Take it from the celebrities who have been there and done that—just don’t care.
Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden
She’s 42, he’s 35. She’s a famous celebrity; he’s a famous rock star. They come from different sides of show business. People who don’t know Diaz may not even think she listens to rock music or know who Benji Madden is. But, as Selena Gomez’s song goes, “the heart wants what it wants”, and the couple is not only together, but is engaged.
Mary-Kate Olsen and Olivier Sarkozy
May-December relationships are nothing new, especially in the world of celebrities. But what made Mary-Kate Olsen and Olivier Sarkozy a stand out is because the world has seen her as a cute toddler until she became an adult. It’s normal for the public to assume her taste in men might be different from her choice now. There’s really nothing wrong with Sarkozy being half-brother of the former French president. He just looks too old for her. But with a rumored engagement, love must be really in the air.
Hayden Panettiere and Wladimir Klitschko
They may have split in May 2011, but is now back together, had their first daughter and is officially engaged. Who knew that a 5’2” Hayden Panettiere can steal the heart of a 6’6” actor and professional boxer from Ukraine? But even with his reputation for being the sixth, longest-reigning Heavyweight Champion of all time, he was powerless against Panettiere. Now, he’s the daddy of Kaya, their first daughter.
