We all love to see it when a person who lives in the limelight finds love with someone who is so-called “normal” — someone who does their own grocery shopping and works regular hours to make a regular paycheck. Maybe it’s because we like to fantasize about the possibility of finding love with a celebrity ourselves…or maybe it’s because romances like these prove that love knows no boundaries.

In the new film Beyond the Lights, premiering on Friday, November 14, pop star Noni falls in love with a police officer named Kaz, assigned to protecting her. In honor of the unlikely yet heartwarming relationship depicted in the movie, we’ve decided to pay tribute to 10 celebrity love affairs with normal people.
