High Profile Celebrities Who Married Ordinary People

/ May 21, 2014

They say about 70% of people meet their future spouse at work and celebrities are certainly no exception. It only makes sense since we all spend the majority of our time at work. Some people actually spend more time at work than they do at home. Many stars are known for meeting their spouses on set filming for a movie. Most notably, Brad Pitt and Angeline Jolie fell for each other on the set of “Mr and Mrs. Smith” and twenty kids later…they’re still together! Ok, so maybe not twenty kids, but we’ve completely lost count, can you blame us?

So what about the celebrities who marry just “regular” folks? Well, we’ll take you through the list….
