Celebrities are normally caught up in their own culture. Living the high life always has its advantages, but it can sometimes make it difficult for A-list celebs to try to live a normal life.
But some celebrities decided that they wanted at least half of their life to be normal. And what better way to feel grounded in reality than to marry someone who doesn’t live the celeb life. The following celebrities all married ordinary people.
Matt Damon and Luciana Barroso met when the actor was filming the movie “Stuck On You.” She was a bartender at a local bar that Damon frequented while working on the nearby set.
The couple has been married since 2005 and has just celebrated their 17th year anniversary. They also have four children together. The two even promise to never be apart for more than two weeks.
Julia Roberts is one of the most iconic actresses still in the business today. She has appeared in iconic movies like Pretty Woman. But she fell in love with Danny Moder while on the set of The Mexican.
Danny Moder was a cinematographer and a camera operator in the movie. The two quickly hit it off and never looked back. The two have three children together.

The two met through Ryder and hit it off immediately. At the time, Sibi had aspirations of being a model. The two lead a private life together away from the paparazzi.
Jerry Seinfeld has been in the comedy business longer than most can remember. He starred in his own sitcom, aptly called “Seinfeld.” Most recently, he’s been conducting interesting interviews with celebrities.
He and his wife got together not long after Jessica split from her fiance after their honeymoon. Even though this sparked controversy, the two have said it isn’t how it seems.
Not all celebrities need to be actors, as legendary Jon Bon Jovi shows us. The lead singer from the band Bon Jovi was releasing records decades ago. But Jon decided he’d marry someone away from the spotlight.
He married Dorothea Hurley out of high school. The two were together for nine years before they decided to tie the knot. They now have four children together, which shows their commitment to each other.

Kevin Jonas is one of the brothers from the musical group The Jonas Brothers. Now much older, Kevin is married to Danielle Deleasa, now Danielle Jonas. Both of his brothers are married to celebs, so he sets himself apart from them.
