Celebrities Trying Out Online Dating

This is a guest post by

It’s not just your regular girl or boy next door logging on to online dating sites in the hope of finding that special someone, celebrities too are using online dating sites to shun their Hollywood identities in favour of meeting everyday people.

Stars like actress and comedian Joan Rivers and Academy Award winner Halle Berry have confessed to browsing on online dating sites — and Rivers even posted an ad on the popular online dating site

“I love smart men, funny men, elegant men,” Rivers’ profile reads.

“If I had to choose between Brad Pitt stripped to the waist or an old George Clooney in a dinner jacket, George would win hands down.”

Rivers’ profile also tells readers she is a comedian, interested in “coffee and conversation”, and includes a picture of the 76-year-old comic.

Even gorgeous Hollywood star Halle Berry has admitted to spending a lot of time in chat rooms, and to dabbling with online dating sites.

“I am never who I am,” Berry said of her experiences online.

“I have been to a couple of dating ones just to see what everybody is talking about. I chime in and say a little fun stuff.”

While it seems unimaginable that stars who attend A-list parties and could have almost anyone they wanted would want to have coffee with the average Joe or Jane, dating advisor to and, Shira Kallus, says some celebrities really just want to be normal.

“They can stop being celebrities and start being people,” she said. “Online dating lets people get to know you for what kind of person you are, not who you are.”

Founder of, Michael Webb, agreed.

“Celebrities are just like everyone else,” he said. “Unfortunately people can become captivated by the celebrity status and be attracted to them for the wrong reasons.”

With online dating, celebrities can try to develop a relationship based on their personality, not their stardom, Webb added.

And even the stars have dry spells just like everyone else. Rivers Cuomo, frontman of US rock band Weezer, signed up for an online dating service site after remaining celibate for two years, he told Rolling Stone magazine.

Last year, Luke Greenfield, director of the 2004 teen comedy The Girl Next Door, placed a profile on Jewish dating site JDate.

“I’m taking time off and I’m looking for a cool, sexy girl who’s sharp, fun, loving, and has great taste,” Greenfield’s profile read. He told readers he just bought a house and needs help decorating, and that those who don’t love movies need not apply.

However, when it comes to making a love connection, many still swear by “the real world”. Out of 2,000 people polled, only seven per cent believe computer-dating services work, according to a recent annual survey by romance-novel publisher Harlequin.

Unfortunately, Cuomo was one of online dating’s dissatisfied customers. After submitting his profile, he said the website responded: “We are sorry, but there is no one anywhere in the world that is appropriate for you.”

“So that was it, I gave up,” he said.

    What a great article. I’ve been dating online for quite a while and love to hear about the experiences that other singles have while cyber-dating. Hearing that celebs are testing the waters here is just great….NOW all I have to do is find George Clooney’s profile and my life will be complete…LOL

    I am sure some celebrities will date us “commoners”….hhhmmm, I sense, very few celebrities would want to “date out of their league.”

  3. Emmanuel

    Well it would be quite the experience wouldn’t it? To be going on a date with someone from an online dating site and end sitting across from Halle Berry.

  4. Sabina

    I admire the human side of these celebrities that they’ll actually try and meet people through the net and show an almost vulnerability and imperfection that they too need to seek love like the rest of us. What makes me laugh is how Jennifer Love Hewitt wrote about dating .. i’m sure her perspective from the rest of population is totally different.

    I will wait for some celebrity to come my way and date me !!! It will be so exciting. This is a great news and creates dreams in so many eyes of commoners. Who would’nt want to sit across Leonardo or Daniel Craig?
