Some stars prove mixing business with pleasure can work out!
Dating in Hollywood can be hard, so it's no surprise some stars find love (or lust) outside the seemingly small celebrity bubble. In fact, Heidi Klum's recent divorce from Seal and subsequent relationship with her bodyguard is just one of the many instances of the famous dating the... well, not-so-famous. From bodyguards to agents and publicists, oftentimes our favorite stars find themselves falling for their closest confidantes.
Here are five celebs who believe in mixing business with pleasure!
1. Heidi Klum
The Project Runway host recently separated from her hubby of seven years, Seal and started seeing her buff bodyguard, Martin Kirsten, soon after. "I’m very happy," she told Ellen DeGeneres of her new relationship, to which Ellen joked, "I was just wondering if you’ve seen the movie The Bodyguard, because I love that movie." Answer: she has!
2. Britney Spears
Poor Brit had a rough couple of years before finding love with her agent at the time, Jason Trawick. But not only does he seem really good for her, it's clear these two are head over heels in love. And, as much as we all secretly loved seeing our favorite pop princess in the tabloids, happy looks way better on Brit!
3. Ethan Hawke
Apparently, Ethan was secretly hooking up his children's nanny, Ryan Shawhughes, while he was still married to Uma Thurman. (I wouldn't recommend this EVER.) Still, it seems his decision to divorce proved a good one as he now has two kids with her. Sometimes moving on from a failing marriage is the best choice. I just really wish he went about it a different way...
4. Reese Witherspoon
Reese kicked her hubby Ryan Phillippe to the curb after he was allegedly caught cheating with a costar. Single Reese played the field for a few years with hotties like Jake Gyllenhaal until she finally fell for agent (and current beau) Jim Toth. "It happened out of the blue," she said about falling in love with him. Now they have a new baby! (And lived happily ever after.)
5. Johnny Depp
After splitting from his longtime girlfriend and mother of his two children, Vanessa Paradis, Johnny was seen dating a lot. So much so that he even had a rumored tryst with his publicist, Robin Baum. They spent so much time traveling together, I suppose it was bound to happen! And I say, good for them! I know I couldn't resist him!
