Who doesn't like a good love story? Especially when it involves celebrities! But with such high divorce rates and temptations around the corner, Hollywood can be a tough place when it comes to finding the right person. Throughout the years we've seen it all, including some of the shortest celebrity marriages of all time.
Lovers come and go, and the years go by. All of sudden, you find yourself approaching middle age and you're still single. While there is nothing wrong with that, some of us would like to settle down at some point.
Chelsea Handler is one star who is proving that it's not some far-off dream, as she recently found love with her longtime friend Jo Koy. "If I fell in love at the age of 46, I have hope for every person in this world,” she said on 'The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon' on October 11.
The comedian had started to lose hope before dating Koy, explaining, “Men were very discouraging these past couple of years, especially, you know, straight white men, and I was like, ‘Oh, God, who am I going to end up with?'” But Handler realized love had been in front of her the whole time, in her longtime friend who had worked with her on her former show 'Chelsea Lately.'
"One day, I just looked at him and I thought, ‘Oh, that’s my guy!’ So he’s like my best buddy, and then I also, you know, get to have sex with him.” She advised the audience, "If you have a friend in your life that you think you’re not into or not attracted to, just remember my story and to be open-minded."
