Miley Cyrus married the first man she loved. That's what being a child star with no time to date would do to you. The actress revealed that meeting her ex-husband, Liam Hemsworth, at 16 was the first time she felt butterflies for a man, although she denied it then to seem cool.

One public break-up and divorce later, she's buying herself flowers and practicing self-love.

Former One Direction member, Zayn Malik has always had a pretty face but not height. As a 13-year-old, that almost cost him his first kiss with his crush. However, he proved to be a resourceful teenager.

Zayn revealed that he stood on a pile of bricks to reach the taller girl's face - that's determination!

As far as first kisses go, Ed Sheeran had a bad experience. While many American teenagers learned everything they knew about love and romance from popular shows like One Tree Hill and Dawson Creek, the Brit learned from Pierce Brosnan's 007.

In his words, it was "very awkward and wet."

One thing Michael Douglas had when wooing his wife, Catherine Zeta-Jones, was age, experience, and a lot of money. After watching her on screen, he fell in love with his wife and convinced their mutual friend, Danny DeVito, to introduce them.

"I'm gonna be the father of your children."

Although his bold statement annoyed Zeta-Jones on their first meeting, he tried again until it became true. They have two children now.
