16 Celebrities Who Have a Relationship Type

Whether consciously or unconsciously, we sometimes gravitate toward a certain type of person in our romantic exploits so that very clear patterns start to arise. While there may be no rhyme or reason to who we ultimately fall in love with, there sometimes are indicators as to who we'll find attractive — particularly if we've shown a fondness for a certain type in the past. Celebrities, of course, aren't immune to such proclivities, which is why it often seems like a few of them date the same person over and over again. Some stars are drawn to people who work in a specific realm — be they athletes, musicians, dancers, or models — while others are attracted to specific physical characteristics.

Kate Hudson, for instance, has shown a fondness for musicians, while Leonardo DiCaprio's fondness for models is well documented. Find out which celebrities have a clear romantic type!

    Supermodel Gigi Hadid is drawn to pop star heartthrobs — specifically, the type of young male celebrities that make teen girls faint in crowds. In October 2014, rumors surfaced that Gigi was canoodling with Joe Jonas, and by early 2015, fans had given the couple the clever nickname "G.I. Joe." After a drama-free breakup in November 2015, Gigi moved on with Zayn Malik, with whom she continues to share some steamy "pillow talk."

  • Adam Levine

    Did Adam Levine study the Victoria's Secret catalog for dating prospects? Before marrying Victoria's Secret Angel Behati Prinsloo in 2014, the Maroon 5 front man dated Russian model Anne Vyalitsana. She even starred in the band's 2011 music video, "Never Gonna Leave This Bed." In addition to Anne V., Levine briefly romanced model Nina Agdal

  • Jessica Simpson

    Clear eyes and full hearts can't lose — at least that seems to be Jessica Simpson's working theory! The blonde singer and fashion mogul wed NFL tight end Eric Johnson in July 2014, after four years of dating. The pair has two children together: Maxwell Drew, 3, and Ace Knute, 2. A year before meeting Johnson, Simpson was nursing a broken heart stemming from the end of her year-and-a-half-long relationship with Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo. Luckily, Simpson seems to have scored a touchdown in the romance department with her hubby. Hey, it all comes down to football and family!

  • Amber Rose

    If he can spit some rhymes, he might just get some of her time. Former stripper and video vixen Amber Rose first became a household name when she popped up on the arm of Kanye West in 2008. For two years, Amber Rose and Kanye West were the toast of the music and fashion worlds. In 2011, Rose moved on to another rap star Wiz Khalifa, whom she married in August 2013. Though they're now divorced, the exes remain friendly and are focusing on co-parenting their 3-year-old son, Sebastian.

    This Kardashian sure likes her ballers! Since filing for divorce from estranged husband Lamar Odom in 2013, Khloe Kardashian has dated a series of NBA stars. From July 2015 to February 2016, Khloe was linked to Houston Rockets player James Harden. As of September 2016, she has reportedly been dating Cleveland Cavaliers player Tristan Thompson. The two even jetted off to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, for a Labor Day getaway!

    A rock 'n' roll love story is always in the cards for supermodel and fashion icon Kate Moss. From June 2005 through July 2007, Moss dated former Libertines front man Pete Doherty, a relationship that seemed as passionate as it was rocky. Shortly after parting ways with Doherty for good, Moss was introduced to The Kills guitarist Jamie Wince. The two married in July 2011. Sadly, four years later, they were embroiled in a contentious divorce. Cue the J. Geil Band's "Love Stinks" and Billy Idol's "Dancing With Myself."

  • Jennifer Lopez

    Fame and fortune are all fine and good but, to catch Jennifer Lopez's eye, a fella also needs some serious dance moves. In 2000, JLo enjoyed a whirlwind romance with her backup dancer Cris Judd, and the two married in September 2001 — only to divorce 9 months later. A decade later, Lopez once again found love with a backup dancer: Casper Smart. The two met in 2011, while Lopez was on tour, and have dated on and off ever since. 

  • Miley Cyrus

    Given her risqué image and her reputation for being a provocateur, one might assume that Miley Cyrus would be drawn to rebel types, but the opposite seems to be true. Cyrus was immediately taken with clean-cut Liam Hemsworth when the two met on the set of The Last Song in June 2009. After a ruptured engagement and a tumultuous split in 2013, the two appear to have reunited as of early 2016. During their break, however, Miley cozied up to Patrick Schwarzenegger, yet another ahtletic, boy-next-door type.

    Cougar alert! Madonna has been known to date guys more than two decades younger than her. In December 2008, shortly after her divorce from Guy Ritchie was finalized, Madonna began dating Brazilian model Jesus Luz, with whom she had a 28-year age difference. After they split in 2010, the Material Girl moved on to another fresh-faced boy toy, dancer Brahim Zaibat, who she dated until 2013 and who accompanied her to the Met Gala that year. Her latest paramour is 25-year-old model Aboukabar Soumahoro.

  • Robert Pattinson

    Blonde bombshells and sweetheart types aren't Robert Pattinson's cup of tea. The Twilight star tends to gravitate toward edgy girls with non-conformist attitudes and a creative streak. Actress Kristen Stewart, who Pattinson met on the set of Twilight and who he dated from 2009 through 2013, certainly fits the criteria. For that matter, so does his current fiancée, singer and performance artist FKA Twigs.

  • Kate Hudson

    She's been linked to athletes like Alex Rodriguez and actors like Owen Wilson, but it's musicians who rock Kate Hudson's world. The Almost Famous star was married to Black Crowes front man Chris Robinson for six years, from 2000 through 2006, and they share a son together, Ryder, now 12. Her lengthiest relationship since then was also with a musician: Hudson dated Muse frontman Matt Bellamy from 2010 through 2014, and the former flames have a 5-year-old son together, Bingham. Most recently, Hudson's been linked to Nick Jonas and DJ Diplo. Music is clearly her aphrodisiac!

  • Gabrielle Union

    Being Mary Jane star Gabrielle Union married Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade in August 2014, but he was hardly the first athlete to romance her! From 2001 until 2006, the actress was married to former Jacksonville Jaguars running back Chris Howard. In the year after her divorce, Union had a fling with now-disgraced NFL player Darren Sharper who, in August 2016, was sentenced to 18 years in prison for drugging and raping at least 16 women in four states.

    Before marrying Blake Lively, the mother of his two children, in September 2012, Ryan Reynolds was briefly hitched to another blonde bombshell: Scarlett Johansson. Reynolds and Johansson divorced in 2010, two years after tying the knot in an ultra-private ceremony. Guess this gentleman really does prefer blondes!

  • Leonardo DiCaprio

    If you haven't landed a Sports Illustrated magazine cover, starred in a major lingerie ad campaign, or walked in a Victoria's Secret fashion show, you need not apply to be Leo DiCaprio's main squeeze. The handsome Oscar winner seems to have a models-only dating policy and has, over the years, been linked to leggy ladies like Gisele, Bar Rafaeli, Eva Herzigova, Erin Heatherton, Chelsey Weimar, Ela Kawalec, Kelly Rohrbach, and Nina Agdal. Life isn't a highway for Leo — it's a runway.

  • Kim Kardashian

    In a 2015 interview with Rolling Stone magazine, Kim Kardashian admitted she'd always been attracted to black guys. "When I was growing up, when I was in high school, I'd get magazines and see interracial couples and think, 'They are so cute,'" she said, adding, "I've always been attracted to a certain kind of look." The "look" she referenced applies to husband Kanye West and ex-boyfriends Reggie Bush and Ray J. In addition to any physical similarities, Yeezy and Ray J are both entertainers with a great sense of style and a reputation for being smooth talkers.

    It's the lanky, quirky, slightly nerdy but totally adorable guys that get Emma Stone's spidey senses tingling. Her ex-boyfriend of four years, Andrew Garfield, perfectly fit the archetyoe, as did her two other high-profile exes: musician Teddy Geiger, whom she dated from 2007 to 2010, and actor Kieran Culkin, to whom she was linked from 2010 to 2011.
