Celebrity Love Advice
Who better to guide us in our never-ending quest for love? Check out these tips from celebrities on relationships and love. Who said celebrities were that different from us anyway?
If you’re in a romantic mood…
“Real true love is like that, where it just creeps up on you when you’re not expecting it … Love is a wonderful, complex, exciting and yet, a sometimes terrible thing.
It will take you places that you didn’t know you could go inside yourself, and sometimes you get the gold, and sometimes you don’t. In love, ANYTHING is possible. Absolutely anything.” — Kate Winslet
“Sometimes, when we’re laying together, I look at her and I feel dizzy with the realization that here is another distinct person from me, who has memories, origins, thoughts, feelings that are different from my own. That tension between familiarity and mystery meshes something strong between us.
Even if one builds a life together based on trust, attentiveness and mutual support, I think that it’s important that a partner continues to surprise.” — Barack Obama (on Michelle)
If you want to find humor in your relationship…
“Being married means I can [break wind] and eat ice cream in bed.” — Brad Pitt (on Angelina Jolie)
“He’s the funniest, smartest person I know. It doesn’t mean he doesn’t bug me and I’m sure I bug him sometimes.” — Sarah Jessica Parker (on Matthew Broderick)
“The best smell in the world is that man that you love.” — Jennifer Aniston (on Brad Pitt)
If you want to stick to what’s important in the relationship…
“Sometimes I think [my husband] is so amazing that I don’t know why he’s with me. I don’t know whether I’m good enough. But if I make him happy, then I’m everything I want to be.” — Angelina Jolie (on Brad Pitt)
“Trust is really important, just in relationships in general. I really don’t like people that aren’t real people around me at all. I don’t like people that are ‘yes’ people. I don’t like people that tell me what they think I want to hear.” — Beyonce Knowles
“I believe that when you’re in love you have to pour your heart and soul out to your partner… or why bother? So in that sense I’m an incurable romantic when it comes to men.” — Cameron Diaz
“You know it’s love when all you want is that person to be happy, even if you’re not part of their happiness.” — Julia Roberts
“Every good relationship, especially marriage, is based on respect. ?If it’s not based on respect, nothing that appears to be good will last very long.” ?— Amy Grant
“Being married you have to have a good sense of humor! It’s a very important part of my life, and my marriage.” — Kate Winslet (on former husband Sam Mendes)
“I know I would sacrifice anything for my boys [husband David and sons Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz], including my career, even though I also know that they would never ask me to.” — Victoria Beckham
“If you love someone, you want to treat them, surprise them, remind them how you feel, whether that means a weekend away somewhere, or a bowl of fruit in the morning laid out in the shape of a heart. I know Victoria thinks I’m romantic like that.” — David Beckham
“It [deciding whether or not to be in a relationship] takes a lot of time, commitment and a choice. I’ve chosen this path [being single], but it’s not to say I’m not open to love or whatever comes my way. You never close doors.” — Rachel McAdams
