Celebrities are mysterious creatures, about which we know very little. While we may squeal excitedly and tell all of our friends when our favourite star steps out with a new beau, the ins and outs of how these relationships came to be are kept secret... most of the time.
Radio host Andy Lee has spoken out about one of the creepier ways celebrities pick up, telling Hit 106.9's Nick & Sophie about his experiences.
Basically, Andy spoke about a practice as old as Hollywood itself, where agents try to set their clients up with other celebs. It might not be the first time you've heard about this, but it's funny to learn this weird dating custom applies to our Aussie stars.
“I’ve had it happen a few times and it’s a strange thing,” Andy said. “I won’t say who, but my manager rang me one day and said, ‘How about this?’ and I was like, ‘Nah, we’re not doing this’. It’s all a bit weird.”
Some of your favourite celebrity couples actually met like this! Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt began their five-year-relationship after both their agents set them up on a blind date, which obviously went well. Meanwhile, Brooklyn Decker famously rejected her now-husband Andy Roddick at first, because he reached out via his agent.
It makes sense, to be honest, considering some celebrities can't even leave the house or speak to another human being without tabloids planning their spring wedding. When you run in small celebrity circles, it kind of seems nice to reach out in this formal, though somewhat creepy, way.
Hey, you've gotta do what you've gotta do.
