John Krasinski was a big fan of Emily Blunt before they got together. In fact, John admitted that he'd seen "The Devil Wears Prada" quite a few times before they met and even almost got caught watching the flick when Emily arrived at his house for a date.
"Embarrassingly, I think we had only been dating a couple weeks, and she stopped by...and I didn't know she was stopping by, so when she opened [the door and came in], I quickly flipped the channel. I'm sure she thought I was watching something completely inappropriate, and I actually chose to let her believe that than know that I had been watching 'The Devil Wears Prada.' And then later in our relationship, she asked if I had seen 'The Devil Wears Prada' and I said, 'Yes,' and she said, 'How many times?' And I said, 'A lot.' She said, 'What's a lot?' And I said, '75 times.' I'm lucky enough that she stayed with me and didn't realize that she had really married her stalker!" John told Glamour.

"Ever since I was like, 8 years old and I saw her on the TV, I was like, 'Mommy, I want that one.' I'm a full-fledged stalker.

"We met on 'SNL,' like, two, three years ago. We never, like, exchanged numbers or anything, we weren't even friends for a long time, but I had the biggest crush in the whole world on him the whole time, like, forever. My friends used to make fun of me," Ariana said on "The Tonight Show."
Liam Payne's dream girl was Cheryl, long before he auditioned for "X Factor." The former One Direction member says it was his crush on the star that motivated his infamous wink towards the judging panel during his audition for the reality show.
"I always, always had a crush on her. I got back to school the next day and when my friends saw [the audition] they were literally ripping the piss out of me ... Now they can't say it didn't work. The wink is powerful, it has powers beyond its own means," Liam told The Sun.

"At one point, I was like, 'I'ma get Mariah Carey.' It turned from my celebrity crush to like, 'Nah, she's about to be my girlfriend.' People were like, 'You're bugging. There's no way you can get Mariah Carey.' I was like, 'Watch, I'm telling you,'" Nick said on TV One’s "Uncensored."
