They surround each other on a regular basis so why wouldn’t they find another who they are interested in? I mean, who else are they going to meet and date? Then you hear news like the fact that Natalie Portman was engaged and pregnant, and you think, "But with who? How could that be?" Well, it turns out you don’t have to be an A-lister to date one.


Here are five of your favorite female celebrities who found love with behind-the-scenes guys:
