Celebrities often get sucked into Hollywood, and their entire lives become paparazzi, glamour, and calculated PR choices. Very often these stars date, marry and have kids - it's all so expected and rarely works out! However, not all stars work this way. These 10 a-list celebs chose to buck the system and marry regular folk!

Matt Damon marries Bartender

Matt Damon was shooting the movie Stuck On You in Miami when fate decided to have its way with Matt!

According to Celebrity Baby Scoop this is how it happened:

“I had never really hung out in Miami and one night in the middle of the shoot, the crew, a couple guys, said, ‘We’re going to get a beer somewhere.’ I said, ‘I’m not really into it.’ They said, ‘Come on,’ and kind of dragged me along,” Matt says of that fateful night.

“We ended up at a bar where my wife was the bartender. I literally saw her across a crowded room…and eight years and four kids later, that’s my life."

“I don’t know how else our paths would have crossed if that didn’t happen…The moral is that when you’re tired, suck it up and go to the bar because you might meet your wife,” Matt laughed.

Marcia Cross marries Random Guy in Flowershop

Desperate Housewives seductress Marcia Cross was in a flower shop in L.A. when something captured her attention. A regular joe. She saw Tom Mahoney, a stockbroker, who looks like your eighth-grade science teacher.

Marcia left her number with the shop owner, and then wham-bam, romance; two years later then duo was hitched.

People Magazine recently asked Cross about her beauty regimen. Her reply was that love kept her looking great - "I think that beauty comes from being happy and connected to the people we love, and his love makes me feel beautiful."

Jeff Bridges marries Waitress

The husky, melodic-voiced Jeff Bridges met his wife on the movie set of a flick he filmed long, long ago titled 'Rancho Deluxe. On set his future wife, Susan Geston, was working as a waitress.

In an interview with Reader's Digest Bridges stated:

"It took me all day to finally get up the nerve to ask her out. And she said no."

Yet, it did eventually pan out for Bridges and the two have a glorious, healthy marriage.

Jenna Fischer marries Screenwriter

The star of the Office, Jenna Fischer fell in love on the set of a movie she was producing and acting in 'The Giant Mechanical Man'. And she fell for its writer!

In an interview with the Vulture Fischer talks about The Giant Mechanical Man and tells how it happened!

"I attached myself as a producer and actor to the movie. Then, for the next six or eight months or so, Lee (her future husband) was writing the movie, and he would turn in different drafts, and I would give him my thoughts," told Fischer.

"Very slowly, over those months, our meetings started turning into dates. I was hesitant to tell him that I was developing feelings for him because this is my first producing job. I wanted to be professional! And here I am, falling in love with the writer."

The rest is history.
