11 Celebs Admit Their Own Star-Struck CrushesPublished on November 15, 2013. Updated March 12, 2014
In the unusual world of Hollywood, it seems that everyone in the entertainment industry knows each other, whether as best friends or one-time acquaintances. With all of these young and powerful people networking on a daily basis, it is easy to be starstruck by someone you admire. Even the most famous celebrity is caught off guard by their celebrity crush.
1. Selena Gomez
With Justin Bieber at her side, at least some of the time, you would think that no one could fluster the popular singer and actress. Shia LaBeouf is Gomez’s starstruck crush and she approached him backstage at an industry event.
“I’m so sorry to bother you. I admire you,” she said breathlessly to Shia. He was gracious about the compliment as Selena rushed off to finish her daily rounds.Helga Esteb / Shutterstock.com s_bukley / Shutterstock.com
2. Kim Kardashian
Although happily engaged to Kanye with daughter North, Kim Kardashian did admit that she would be “happy to have George Clooney, just once.” With a successful reality television series, clothing line and numerous beauty lines, Kardashian may run into Clooney at some point.Helga Esteb / Shutterstock.com landmarkmedia / Shutterstock.com
3. Amy Adams
With a beautiful singing voice and matching acting chops, Amy Adams has that “girl next door” look about her, but don’t let that fool you. She crushes on Colin Farrell, whom she has never worked with, at least not yet.
“He’s a perfect, working class, Irish man and he’s honest and funny,” Adams said about Farrell. Hollywood casting directors should get these two together on set for some magical chemistry.s_bukley / Shutterstock.com Featureflash / Shutterstock.com
4. Jennifer Lawrence
An Oscar win and a successful trilogy movie series isn’t enough to ruffle Lawrence’s feathers, but the sight of John Stamos drives her mad. In reality, she was actually admiring his backside before building her courage to talk to him. The conversation did not go as planned though.
“I just stared really freaking out and he asked me if I was on mushrooms and I was like ‘no. I am like dead sober,” said Lawrence. Her genuine reaction must have flattered Stamos, but he admits he was oblivious to the crush factor.Featureflash / Shutterstock.com Joe Seer / Shutterstock.com
5. Kristen Stewart
Although she starred in one of the most popular movie trilogies ever with her ex-boyfriend Robert Pattinson, Stewart admitted that she enjoys older men (as we all found out last year).
“I used to have a huge thing for Harrison Ford,” Stewart said. With Ford a regular at most Hollywood awards shows, these two should at least shake hands. Who can resist Han Solo?Featureflash / Shutterstock.com Featureflash / Shutterstock.com
6. Jessica Simpson
As a regular Hollywood starlet, Simpson has probably met her share of handsome men. She admits that her crush on Johnny Depp backfired horribly because she was not prepared. After stumbling over her words, Simpson says she ended the conversation with, “Okay, I’m going to shut up now and walk away!” No word from Depp’s camp about his response to that exchange.s_bukley / Shutterstock.com Jaguar PS / Shutterstock.com
7. Rebel Wilson
A successful movie and television career brings Rebel Wilson into the Hollywood crush mixture. She confessed her feelings for Channing Tatum.
“Channing Tatum. I’m too nervous to even say it because what if he sees this?” Wilson said just recently. Although Tatum is married, Wilson’s crush remains strong to this day.Joe Seer / Shutterstock.com Debby Wong / Shutterstock.com
8. Reese Witherspoon
Witherspoon was lucky enough to work with her celebrity crush, Robert Pattinson. Although both are in relationships, the admiration is apparent between the two friends. Being professional on set is top priority for both celebrities.
“I’m not gonna lie. He’s a very, very handsome man,” Witherspoon confessed. His many legions of fans would agree with that statement.Joe Seer / Shutterstock.com s_bukley / Shutterstock.com
Married to Beyonce and cultivating a legendary rap career, Jay-Z has a celebrity crush that has been in effect for several decades, well before meeting his current wife.
“How does it feel to be every boy from the hood’s fantasy girlfriend for 20 years?” Jay-Z recently said to his crush, Nia Long. With such a forward question, Long was flattered afterward and a bit startled at the celebrity admission.s_bukley / Shutterstock.com s_bukley / Shutterstock.com
10. Niall Horan
One Direction just keeps growing their fan base to be one of the most successful boy bands ever, but Horan has a special lady on his mind. After meeting her at an awards show, Horan decided to let Katy Perry know his true feelings. He must have been shy, or just too busy, to tell her directly. Twitter was the best choice for his admission.
“I love you @katyperry! Thank you! PS. Will u marry me?” Horan tweeted. No response from Perry’s camp at this point.JStone / Shutterstock.com Joe Seer / Shutterstock.com
11. Elton John
Several years his senior, Elton John admits to a crush on Liam Hemsworth. After Hemsworth’s breakup with Miley Cyrus, John confessed his feelings on a talk show.
“I’ll take Miley’s old boyfriend. He’s gorgeous… those Australians,” John stated. Maybe this crush can inspire a new John song for the radio waves.s_bukley / Shutterstock.com Helga Esteb / Shutterstock.com
