Eight modern-day Cinderellas who won the hearts of Hollywood actors
Many young ladies dream about marrying popular actors. The majority would say that it's impossible, yet they'd be wrong to do so. A lot of celebrities have taken ladies working in completely ordinary professions - as waitresses, real estate agents, bartenders - as their wives.
To prove this point, we at Bright Side bring you the fairy-tale stories of ordinary girls who managed to melt the hearts of well-known actors. How did this happen? Because each and every person is wonderful in their own way.
Eve Mavrakis and Ewan McGregor
This lady from France and the famous Scottish actor met each other on a movie set. However, Eve Mavrakis wasn't a popular actress - she was a set decorator. From their very first day and up to now, the two have always been together; they have four beautiful kids and live in a beautiful house.
Alice Kim and Nicolas Cage
The story of how Alice Kim and Nicolas Cage met each other indeed resembles a fairy tale. Alice worked as a waitress in one of LA's restaurants, when one day the famous actor came in there. He was charmed by Alice at once, and took her to Hollywood with him. Despite everyone's skeptical attitude to their relationship, the couple has been together for eleven years.
Luciana Barroso and Matt Damon
Before she met her husband, Luciana Barroso wasn't a star, had never acted in any movie, and had never stepped on the red carpet. She in fact worked as a bartender in a night club which Matt Damon happened to come to one day. The girl confessed to the actor that she adored his movies. He liked her, and decided to get to know her better. Since then, they've been together. The couple got married in 2005, and today they have four beautiful daughters.
Rebecca Gleeson and Eric Bana
Although Rebecca Gleeson is neither a singer nor an actress, she is a publicist and the daughter of Australia's Chief Justice, so it can't really be said that she's from a completely unknown background. But before she met Eric Bana in 1997, she was no celebrity. The couple have been together ever since.
Caroline Fentress and Chris O'Donnell
Caroline and Chris met in college, and have been together since then. Despite having a movie star as her husband, Caroline continues working as an ordinary teacher at a school.
Zoe Buckman and David Schwimmer
Zoe was a waitress when she met her future husband. David Schwimmer was shooting a movie in London and decided to have a snack in a restaurant. The meeting proved to be fateful, and the couple got married in June 2010.
Kyla Weber and Vince Vaughn
When the couple met each other, Kyla was working in a Canadian real estate firm as an agent. Vince Vaughn was not in the least perturbed by this fact, and in 2010 he proposed to her. They are still together and happy.
Tara Wilson and Chris Noth
Tara Wilson worked as a waitress when she met her future spouse. She waited for eight years for his proposal, then in 2012 she finally became the famous actor's wife.
