10 Celebrities Who've Used Online Dating Sites Just Like Normals

Tinder, Match.com and eHarmony, oh my!

Celebs: they’re just like us! Online dating isn’t for the faint of heart, but these stars decided to give it a shot just like regular folk.

Read what they had to say about their experiences using online dating sites and apps below.

1
Martha Stewart
Martha Stewart gave Match.com a shot in 2013, when the "Today" show helped her set up a profile. The domestic goddess -- who divorced husband Andrew Stewart in 1987-- went on dates with two men on the site. Martha's verdict? “They did a really, really nice job of being dates,” Stewart said, before noting that she would "absolutely" go on another date with both.

"Modern Family" actor Eric Stonestreet told Howard Stern that he tried Tinder back in 2014. "I've gone out with a couple girls in LA that I met on Tinder, like on real dates," he said. "It's hard to meet people."

Ronda Rousey
Ronda Rousey told Sports Illustrated that she created an alter ego, Brynn Campbell, for Tinder back in 2015, but like many of us, she hadn't had much success. "S---, the only person I'm making out with is my dog," she told the magazine. There's no need for Tinder these days. In August 2017, Rousey married fellow mixed martial arts UFC fighter Travis Browne.

Jenny McCarthy
Jenny McCarthy gave Match.com a shot back in 2011. She was specifically looking for guys between the ages of 35 to 48. “It’s so hard out here," she told Radar Online. "The guys are like chicks here… There’s no real guy guys, so maybe importing from somewhere will be smart. Anyone not from LA, I think.” She found love again -- and not on Match.com -- when she married Donnie Wahlberg in 2014.

Andy Cohen

Back in 2015, "Watch What Happens Live" host Andy Cohen told People he was a Tinder fan. "I like it," he said. "It's fun. You know, it's to me: Where am I going to meet an architect who lives in Brooklyn besides Tinder at this point? It's the modern-day singles bar."

In 2015, "Broad City" star and stand-up comedian Hannibal Buress told Cosmopolitan he'd given Tinder a shot. "I've used Tinder, but I have never met anybody from it," he said. "I'll match with people, and then they'll reference my character from 'Broad City,' and then that feels weird. They'll be like, 'Is this really Lincoln?' And I'm, like, 'That's not my real name. You see my name, it's on the profile.' So I've been on it, but I just haven't met anybody from it."

On HuffPost Live in 2014, Counting Crows frontman Adam Duritz said he was on Tinder, but he didn't have high hopes for matching with anyone. “I don’t think most people would even have me on their [age] range," the '90s alt-rock star said. "Most people my age aren’t on [Tinder]. They don’t even know how to use a phone.” At least he's been lucky in the past; Duritz's exes include Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox and Emmy Rossum.
