10+ Celebrities Who Admitted They Had Crushes On Their Peers

In all our fascination with celebs, it's easy to forget that they're people too. They eat, sleep, and cry in the shower the same way we do.

They even have crushes on other celebs!

We'd say stay away from our imaginary loves, but we also kinda 'ship these potential romances.

Here are 10+ celebs who admitted crushes on their peers.

1. Lucy Hale

The Pretty Little Liars star has a thing for funny men.

In 2013, she told Lucky magazine that she thinks Steve Carell is "so sexy." She took her love up a notch when she tweeted, "Steve Carell is my dream man. That's all."

2. Ariana Grande

Now, this is a crush we didn't see coming.

The "Positions" singer has called Jim Carrey her "lifelong crush." When she met him in 2014, she was even emotional, something that was "uncharacteristic" for her.

"I met him and I was kind of nervous to meet him, you know, he's been my crush forever," she told *Live with Kelly and Michael*.

"What if he's not as nice as I'm expecting?" she said.

But thankfully, she said that he was so nice and perfect.

3. Nicole Kidman

Nicmmy could have been a thing!

While on his show, the actress recalled how she went over to his house many years ago, thinking it was sort of a date. Thing is, Jimmy had no clue that she liked him!

"I swear, you didn't talk at all," Nicole said to a shocked Fallon.

"And I left and I went, 'Okay, no chemistry.' And then I was like, 'Maybe he's gay.'"

You dun goofed, Jimmy! They're now both married to other people.

4. Noah Schnapp

Okay, this is adorable.

The 16-year-old Stranger Things star has admitted to having a crush on Zendaya (who doesn't?).

He called her "so pretty" while gushing over her at the MTV Movie and TV Awards.

5. Diane Keaton

The actress is dying to be a cougar with Channing Tatum.

She even told Ellen DeGeneres in 2015 that she's willing to break her no-marriage streak with him. We can only imagine the private Magic Mike shows he'd give her...

6. Jennifer Lawrence

The Hunger Games actress sure is hungry for the Seinfeld creator.

She has spoken out about her crush on him several times throughout the years, like when she told Vanity Fair, "I'm in love with him."

7. Drake

The rapper has never been shy about his feelings towards Rihanna.

He said that he's been in love with her since he was 22 at the 2016 VMAs and has also called her "the greatest woman I've ever known."

8. Helen Mirren and Vin Diesel

This is a case of two celebs openly admitting that they have a crush on one another!

It all started when the actress told Seth Meyers in 2015 that she "sort of fell a little bit in love" with Vin after watching him give an awards speech.

Vin returned her words of affection after the pair worked on *The Fate of the Furious* together.

“I remember this being one of my favorite days in my journey,” Diesel has said about his scene with Mirren.

"No one else in the room mattered. Nothing existed but this bond between her and I, and there was something really magical and really special about it."

9. Josh Hutcherson

The Hunger Games actor has long been smitten for Emma Watson.

He even asked his manager to call her manager and set up a date for them. "It hasn't happened yet. One day, fingers crossed!" he told Bang Showbiz in 2013.

10. Cole Sprouse

Back when he played Ben on Friends, he developed a major schoolboy crush on Jennifer Aniston.

“I was infatuated. I was speechless—I’d get all bubbly and forget my lines and completely blank…It was so difficult," he told the New York Post in 2017.

11. KJ Apa

Cole isn't the only Riverdale actor who has a crush on Jennifer Aniston.

In 2017, Apa told Cosmopolitian that she's his celebrity crush even though he didn't grow up watching the show.

Who can blame them? She's gorgeous!

12. Dax Shepard

He may be married to Kristen Bell, but that hasn't stopped Dax from dreaming about Brad Pitt.

"I felt like Julia Roberts in 'Pretty Woman,'" Shepard told Ellen DeGeneres of his motorcycle date with the star.

13. Sandra Bullock

The actress has one thing in common with the rest of the planet: she's in love with Keanu Reeves.

This crush has roots to it, going all the way back to when they worked on the movie Speed together in 1994.

"I think about how sweet Keanu Reeves was, and how handsome he was," Bullock told Ellen DeGeneres in 2018.

She said that this made it hard for her to film when she was so smitten.

Keanu later admitted that he also had a crush on Sandra at the time!

14. Jake Gyllenhaal

Yet another celeb who has admitted his feelings for Jennifer Aniston!

The pair worked together in 2002 on The Good Girl. “I will say, I had a crush on her for years. And working with her was not easy...I was — um, yeah. That’s all I’m going to say," he told People.

15. Selena Gomez

The "Rare" singer has a major crush on Chris Evans. Join the club, girl!

She admitted to it during her 2015 appearance on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen. "Isn't he cute? He's very cute," she said.

16. Reese Witherspoon

Growing up, Reese was a big fan of the popular series 21 Jump Street, which really meant that she was a big fan of Johnny Depp's.

"I'm not sure it would faze him: I'm sure he's heard that quite a bit," she said to MTV.

17. Sophie Turner

Would you believe me if I told you that the Queen in the North used to have a thing for the Chan-Chan Man?

Sophie openly admits that she used to crush hard on former Friends star, Matthew Perry. Can you blame her?

18. Meryl Streep

It takes a special kind of man not to be intimidated by the awesome power that is Meryl Streep. But if push came to shove, Meryl thinks that Hollywood funnyman Will Ferrell might be up to the challenge.

19. Britney Spears

Britney (like many of us) became enamored with Brad Pitt in her late teens and twenties.

He's single now, Britney. If ever there was a time to shoot your shot, it's now.

I know the pop Queen is currently coupled up — but it's Brad Pitt!

20. Sam Smith

I can totally see where Sam is coming from when he says that his first celebrity crush was Shia LaBeouf. Have you seen Peanut Butter Falcon?!

Shia's got that smoldering intensity mixed with deep sensitivity. Plus, he and Sam even look alike!

21. Josh Brolin

Josh Brolin has always been a fairly open and honest person. That's why he didn't hesitate to let his Deapool 2 co-star, Ryan Reynolds, know exactly how he felt about him.

He said it was The Proposal that won him over.

22. Tiffany Hadish

Sometimes when you step up to the plate, you strikeout. But what's important is that you tried and that you gave it your best shot.

In a similar vein, Tiffany may not have gotten the response from Michael B. Jordan that she was hoping for — but at least she has closure.

23. Bella Thorne

During an interview with Harpers Bazaar, Bella let her feelings for Kristen Stewart be heard: "She's so hot. She seems like the raddest [sic] chick, I'd be so down."

I can totally picture these two together, how about you?

24. Emma Watson

Emma did indeed have a crush on one of her Harry Potter castmates, but it wasn't Harry or Ron.

It turns out that Emma has a thing for the bad boys of the Wizarding World. That's right, I'm talking about Draco Malfoy AKA Tom Felton.

25. Jack Black

Jack revealed that when he was 10-years-old, he used to have an insane crush on Jodie Foster.

He went on to say that he's also attracted to a good sense of humor and that he finds Amy Poehler to be incredible.

26. Tom Holland

Tom was a big fan of Friends growing up, more specifically of Jennifer Aniston's career-defining portrayal of Rachel Green.

The star of Spider-Man gushed about how Jennifer is his ideal perfect woman and that he thinks she's absolutely wonderful.

27. Anne Hathaway

During an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Anne was asked to name her first celebrity crush. Without batting an eye, she threw out the name Leonardo DiCaprio.

Followed up quickly by Pearl Jam frontman, Eddie Vedder.

28. Mandy Moore

Mandy has said that she was so infatuated with Shane West while filming A Walk to Remember that she had a difficult time separating Shane West the actor from the character that he was playing.

Keep in mind, Many was only 16-years-old at the time.

30. Christian Bale

Christian and Drew Barrymore had only one date together. They went to see a horrible horror movie and then Drew never called him back.

Years later, Drew was asked by Andy Cohen to explain her decision. She said that it was nothing against Christian, only that it was a difficult time in her life.

29. Martha Stewart

Martha Stewart may be a maven of the industry but she's still human. This means that not even someone like Martha can withstand the charms of one Ryan Gosling.

Martha says that she's seen all of Ryan's films and that her favorite is The Ides of March.

31. Amy Adams

Amy discovered films like The Deer Hunter and The Godfather Part II later in life.

It made her realize that she has a pretty serious retroactive crush on Robert De Niro. Clearly, Amy has yet to watch Taxi Driver.
