A lot of people would say that nerds make the most awkward lovers, but that’s not always the case. Just because you know every word to every Star Trek movie that has ever been made or can recite many Doctor Who episodes by heart, it doesn’t mean you don’t have what it takes to impress a beautiful woman. As a matter of fact, many hot girls out there love a man who is intellectual. After all, a man who knows how to talk his way through dinner or better yet, follow through with directions, are truly the secretly lucky ones.
Plus, just because you are socially awkward in public, that doesn’t mean you are also socially awkward behind closed doors. A lot of people would agree that the hottest babes out there dig nerds – just because they are so incredibly refreshing in a world of alpha-males and frat boys who more often than not struggle to calculate the tip at the end of a dinner date. There’s no bigger turn off than seeing a light bulb fizzle above your date’s head during the most mundane dinner ever.
With that being said, here are 15 steamy celebrities who have fallen for some of the biggest nerds in the entertainment industry. You’d be surprised to see who managed to make our list.
16 Chrissy Teigen And John Legend
There’s no denying that Chrissy Teigen is one of the hottest women on the planet. She’s a swimsuit model and not only does she have the looks and a great body, but one of the best and quirkiest personalities on social media. The woman is a full package and best of all, she gets real about a number of issues from postpartum depression to politics on every given day.
Now, her husband John Legend isn’t technically a nerd, but he doesn't technically have A-list status in the celebrity world, either. But the man can surely belt out some incredible radio tunes. We’re just happy that these two have found each other because not only are they the most adorable couple in the celebrity world, but we like that sexy girls like Chrissy go for guys with brains and talent like John.
15 Amber Heard And Elon Musk
Amber Heard pretty much shocked everyone after she stepped out with billionaire businessman Elon Musk only a few short months after she divorced her ex-husband, Johnny Depp. I mean, how do you go from someone so hard and edgy like Johnny to someone so smart and innovative like Elon? Actually, we know what the answer is, but we won’t say it.
And while not many people are surprised that Amber would date a guy like Elon, we can only imagine what their conversations must be like behind closed doors. I mean, the pillow talk between Amber and Elon might be incredibly stimulating and intelligent, right? Amber is probably trying to encourage her boyfriend to apply her ideas for Tesla’s new body designs for their upcoming models. Or better yet, offer to go to space with him.
14 Serena Williams And Alexis Ohanian
Speaking of beautiful women with social media geeks, it took a very long time for Serena Williams and Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian to even confirm that they were together. The tennis ace and her beau have been dating for two years and are the new proud parents of their daughter, Alexis Olympia Ohanian, Jr.
And from what we can tell, Serena is head-over-heals in love with the business mogul as the two are currently planning their upcoming wedding together. The pair met back in 2015 in Rome. Alexis sat down at a table next to Serena. The grand slam champion and her friends tried to get him to leave by telling him there was a rat at his table. When that didn’t work, she invited him to her table and the rest, as they say, is history. And honestly, we love seeing Serena and Alexis together. In fact, they are our favorite beauty and the geek couple on this list.
13 Jennifer Lawrence And Darren Aronofsky
It’s no secret that many Hollywood actresses end up falling in love with their directors they work for. And Jennifer Lawrence and Darren Aronofsky’s love story is no different. The couple have been dating on the down-low for a little over a year now and even worked on their latest movie together.
Now, we don’t know how long Darren and Jennifer are going to last or how serious they are taking their relationship, but so far things seem to be working for them. As we all know too well, many couples that work together don’t seem to last together for very long. Yet Jennifer seems very smitten with the controversial director and has even gone as far as calling him a genius in her interviews.
12 Emma Stone And Andrew Garfield
Emma Stone is gorgeous. Andrew Garfield, on the other hand, is Spider-Man and that right there should be enough for any gal to want to date him. Emma and Andrew are no longer together, but for the longest time they were Hollywood’s cutest couple.
And while a lot of people have been wondering if these two will ever get back together again, Andrew recently went on the record to say that he is still Emma Stone’s biggest fan and that they are very good friends. Andrew even gave her a standing ovation at the 2017 Golden Globes when she won a Best Actress award. Awww. Peter Parker really does love Gwen Stacy. They really were the cutest, both on and offscreen. Just get back together, kids. We’re all rooting for you!
11 Miranda Kerr And Evan Spiegel
She’s the queen of supermodels from Down Under. He’s the co-founder of Snapchat and the current king of social media. Together, they make one powerful but beautiful looking couple. While Evan Spiegel has the brains, there’s no denying that his new wife Miranda Kerr is the beauty.
A lot of people were surprised that Miranda and Evan even began dating in the first place but then again, we are talking about Miranda Kerr here. This woman aims high and loves to be with guys who are in their prime. Strangely enough, though, she tends to use her Instagram account more than her Snapchat one. You’d think that would have been a deal breaker for Evan by now, but it hasn’t. The couple tied the knot in a lavish ceremony earlier this year.
10 Olivia Wilde And Jason Sudeikis
She’s one of the hottest actresses in Hollywood and, well, he can be classified as one of the funniest. Many couples find love in strange places but for Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis, they just happened to find each other at the right time. The couple started dating after Olivia divorced her first husband, Italian prince Tao Ruspoli and when Jason ended his marriage with his ex-wife, writer and producer Kay Cannon.
Sure, Jason Sudeikis might not be in the same category of hotness as Olivia Wilde, but then again, who is? The woman is in a league of her own. But one wedding and two children later, these two are still going very strong. As long as you’re a funny guy like Jason, then yes, women like Olivia will fall hard for you.
9 Karlie Kloss And Josh Kushner
A lot of people were surprised to hear that Jared Kushner’s brother Josh Kushner is nothing like him. He is a staunch democratic supporter, while Jared Kushner's views are the opposite. With that being said though, the Kushner brothers do have one thing in common: they love to date beautiful, blonde, and leggy women.
Although Josh likes to keep out of the public spotlight, he has been dating high-profile model and Taylor Swift’s best friend, Karlie Kloss. And the couple has been going strong for well over five years now. No word on whether they plan on getting engaged or having any double date nights with Josh’s brother Jared and his wife Ivanka Trump.
8 Benedict Cumberbatch And Sophie Hunter
When it comes to Benedict Cumberbatch, there are two groups of people out there. There are those who are die-hard Cumberbatch fans and others who simply don’t get his appeal whatsoever. If we needed someone to do our quantum physics homework, he would be the first person we would call.
With that being said, Benedict managed to not only find true love with fellow actress Sophie Hunter, but start a family with her, too. And for many of Benedict’s fans, they think that Sophie is the luckiest woman on the planet. While we can’t say the same, there’s no denying that these two do look very happy together. I mean, she’s going to bed with Sherlock Holmes every night. That right there can make a lot of people jealous.
7 Lorde And James Lowe
For the longest time Lorde and her ex-boyfriend James Lowe looked like the most adorable couple in the entertainment world, if not the most unconventional. The two weren’t very public about their private life but according to reports, they dated for two years before splitting up back in 2015.
And while Lorde hasn’t said much about James, her mom Sonja Yelich did have this to say about their relationship to Rolling Stone magazine: “I didn't say, 'Yeah, sure, go date a 24-year-old.' But her dad and I met James and we liked him. When Ella was much younger, her first boyfriend was older — four years or something.”
6 Kunal Nayyar And Neha Kapur
Kunal Nayyar is by far one of the biggest geeks on the hit primetime sitcom The Big Bang Theory. And while his smart, lovable character has won over fans from all over the world, offscreen he’s managed to win the heart of a former Miss India, Neha Kapur.
The couple was set up by friends at the opening of a bar in New Dehli back in 2008. And for Kunal, it was love at first sight. Speaking about how they met, the 36-year-old actor recalled, “We talked about our childhoods in New Delhi. Gradually, I think she could tell I was not a creep and she began to open up. There was something beautiful about the rawness of her emotion. I had known her for two hours, and I was getting hooked.”
5 Johnny Galecki And Kelli Garner
Of course, we can’t talk about the Big Bang Theory geeks without mentioning Johnny Galecki. For years, he and his co-star Kaley Cuoco managed to hide their romance from the press and even from the rest of the cast. But after their break up, Johnny found himself in the arms of another beautiful blonde woman, his on-and-off girlfriend of several years, model Kelli Garner.
And while a lot of people think that Johnny and Kaley are meant to be, she’s moved on with several other men, including her current boyfriend, Karl Cook. But don’t worry about Johnny Galecki. With his intellect and adorable yet geeky good looks, there’s a good chance that he’ll find another hot babe to keep him company very soon. Guys like Johnny aren’t single for very long.
4 Elizabeth Banks And Max Handelman
Elizabeth Banks is one of Hollywood’s prettiest, funniest and most down-to-earth actresses. She also has a great sense of humor and kicked some serious a*s in a number of animated movies, including The Lego Movie, Power Rangers and of course, The Hunger Games series.
And while Elizabeth doesn’t like to talk much about her personal life, she’s been married for 12 years now to sports writer Max Handelman. The couple met on their first day at the University of Pennsylvania together. It took years for Max to muster the courage to propose to her, but he finally did. They tied the knot in 2003. The couple has two children together. And from what we can tell, they are one of few Hollywood couples that are truly happy together.
3 Christina Hendricks And Gregory Arend
Christina Hendricks was by far one of the biggest break-out stars from AMC’s hit drama Mad Men. Who can forget Christina in all of those eye-popping, figure-hugging ensembles that she wore during the show? It almost made a lot of people want to find themselves a time machine to be teleported back to the 1960s.
Christina says that when she first met her husband, actor Gregory Arend, she came on a little too strong, but that didn’t seem to bother him too much. She said, “I cracked it out in such a big way. I was like, ‘You make me want to have a family.’ I freaked him out a bit... Thank God I didn’t spook him enough to make him leave.” But then again, this is Christina Hendricks talking. Who in their right mind would leave?
2 Julia Roberts And Danny Moder
Julia Roberts could have easily fallen in love with any of her co-stars, but she chose a man behind the camera instead. The Hollywood A-lister has been married to cameraman Danny Moder since 2002. The couple reportedly split their time between their ranch in Sante Fe, New Mexico and their home in Malibu, California.
Unfortunately, fans haven’t seen Julia Roberts and Danny Moder together for several months now, prompting many to speculate that the couple might have secretly broken up. The world’s prettiest woman single again? Say it isn’t so! And while there’s no doubt that Julia is fiercely protective of her private life, she’s yet to comment about the separation rumors, or the whereabouts of her husband, for that matter.
1 Simon Helberg And Jocelyn Towne
Speaking of nerds with hot wives, it seems like that’s the case for most of the cast of The Big Bang Theory. Believe it or not, Simon Helberg once revealed that he dumped his wife, actress and producer Jocelyn Towne before he married her. Or as Simon likes to put it, it was an "exercise in destruction." We believe it.
Simon explained, “It's sort of embarrassing. It's about my wife and I and our break up before I proposed. I thought I would like to marry this girl, so first of all I'm going to systematically destroy my entire life and our relationship and lie and ruin all my friendships. I freaked out, I thought I had feelings for other people, I thought that I needed more of an exciting life. I had the perfect thing. I proposed immediately on her return because I thought if I can just trap her and force her to marry me that's the most romantic thing anyone could ask for."
