These celebrities were set up by Blndt’s co-start from the Devil Wears Prada and close friend Anne Hathaway in 2008. Since then Emily and John have been happily married and are raising two kids. Three of them are still good friends and Krasinski once joked that he only married Blunt because he “couldn’t get Annie”. But Hathaway, being a true friend, responded that she’s “only with Adam because I couldn’t get Emily”.
Note: The Adam she’s referring to is Adam Shulman, Hathaway’s husband.
02. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle
Prince Harry and Meghan Markie first met in July 2017. However, they didn’t know much about each other before their first date. During their first TV interview with BBC they share their love story by saying “It was definitely a setup,” said Markle, “It was a blind date.” Prince Harry added that he didn’t know anything about Meghan before but “was beautifully surprised when I walked into that room and saw her.”
03.Elsa Pataky and Chris Hemsworth
Elsa Pataky shared that the first time she and Chris met was during a blind date. “We had never seen each other before. It was our dialect coach, the person who helped us both with the accent. So, this lady started to talk [to us] about each other. Finally, she insisted so much that I thought, ’Okay, let’s meet.’ We talked on the phone, and we met,” Pataky explained.
Pataky and Hemsworth have been together for 11 years and are raising 3 children
04.Salma Hayek and Francois-Henri Pinault
Salma Hayek revealed that her first date with her husband started badly. “I didn’t know it was a date. I thought I was going to an event, and then there was one person at it. I was set up by friends to think I was going to an event because they knew I wouldn’t go on a date! I was angry. And he didn’t know because he thought I knew he was coming just to meet him. It started out really badly, but, as you can see, it ended happily.”
05. Courteney Cox and Johnny McDaid
These couples owe their relationship to Ed Sheeran. In one of his interviews, Sheeran shared, “I wasn’t allowed to talk about it actually, but now that they’re showing up in public…I introduced Courteney Cox to my roommate [Johnny McDaid], who I’ve been living with for a while. They started dating [and] they’re crazy about each other.”
06. Stanley Tucci and Felicity Blunt Tucci
Tucci and Blunt first met at Emily Blunt and John Krasinski’s wedding in 2019. Since then they have been crazy about each other.

08. Meghan Trainor and Daryl Sabara
In an interview with Chelsea Handler on Netflix, Meghan Trainor shared, “I asked every person I met since day one, ’Find me a boyfriend!’ Like, especially new friends too. Chloë Grace Moretz is a friend of mine, and on day one of meeting her, I was like, ’You know anybody that I could date? Or love? Whatever. And she’s like, ’I know the nicest guy in the world, Daryl, and you should meet him.’ I was like, ’Daryl? Okay.’”
