Don't pretend you don't have one. Everyone has a "type." While some girls go for athletic guys, indie musicians, or emotionally unavailable men, you'll see the same behavior with guys. Some will date four blondes in a row, while others might only swipe right on Tinder if she has a British accent. The whole "type" thing happens from the most traditional relationships to those that break down barriers, and it's no different in celeb land.
Who's dating who is the juiciest news in Hollywood. Given how quickly these high earners trade in for a newer model though, it's also insanely hard to keep up with. Whether they're tying the knot in lavish weddings or cheaping out Vegas-style, celeb marriages don't seem to last very long. When celebs get divorced, it's very ugly and very public. Just like us though, celebs have a very specific "type" and just like us, they date the same person over and over. Whether it's strictly rappers or eyeing up the married guy, these ladies could be cast in Groundhog Day a hundred times over. They might announce their relationships as new and exciting, but when you look at their dating history, it's one lather, rinse, repeat. The odd couple, like Will and Jada Pinkett Smith or David and Victoria Beckham are long-lasting, but everyone else seems to be in recycling mode. Here are 20 female celebs who most definitely have a (very specific) type.
20 JENNIFER ANISTON: WANTS TRUE LOVE, JUST GETS HEARTACHE
Poor girl. Jennifer Aniston has been America's sweetheart since the 90s, when she shot to fame as the fashionista beauty, Rachel Green in Friends. The actress is approaching 50, but despite her fame and fortune, she still hasn't found "the one." Her relationship baggage has been trawled through the media in a bit of a carnage, and it always ends up with Jen having her heart broken.
The biggest one is, of course, the Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt love triangle. Despite having been married since 2000, Brad and Angie "fell in love" during the filming of Mr & Mrs Smith. Brad left Jen, but it wasn't her only relationship failure.
Jen also dated John Mayer, Vince Vaughn, Tate Donovan, plus Justin Theroux. In 2018, after just three years of marriage, Jen and Justin split.
We keep rooting for Jen, but she keeps winding up heartbroken.
19 KIM KARDASHIAN: RAPPERS ONLY NEED APPLY
Kim Kardashian may have finally settled with her husband, Kanye West, but this multi-millionaire definitely has a "type." Kim is on her third marriage, having wed (and divorced) Damon Thomas and NFL player Kris Humphries. Her marriage to Kris lasted just 72 days, but we're looking at types here, not time.
Kim's first husband was in the rap industry, and it was a similar deal with Reggie Bush, whom Kim dated between 2007 and 2010. Kim and rapper Nick Cannon were also an item in 2006, and in 2008, TMZ reported that Kim had been spotted cozying up to rap icon, 50 Cent. Add on the fact that her current husband is one of the biggest rappers in the industry. Pattern, much?
18 ANGELINA JOLIE: ALWAYS EYEING UP THE WRONG GUY
Angelina Jolie continues to top lists as the world's most beautiful woman, but she's also making headlines for less savory reasons.
The actress has quite the dating portfolio, and it definitely shows her rebel streak.
After her first marriage to Trainspotting star, Johnny Lee Miller, Angelina got together with Billy Bob Thornton, but she wasn't on her best behavior.
Ange and Billy Bob met on-set in a bit of a bust up, and she did the same thing with Brad Pitt (while he was married to Jennifer Aniston). The 42-year-old mom of six isn't enjoying the best reputation right now, but that's what you get for always eyeing up guys who are already attached.
17 PAM ONLY DATES REBELS
Pamela Anderson will always be known as the original blonde bombshell. The Baywatch actress and model has an adventurous streak, and it turns rebellious when you look at her love life. Pamela dated and married rocker, Tommy Lee (which came with its own scandal), and that was followed by a relationship with country rocker and rebel, Kid Rock.
Add on her quick Vegas marriages to Rick Salomon and tattooed musician, Fred Durst, that is definitely one very rebellious type. Pamela is now 50 with two kids. Given that she's taken to her own website encouraging them to "experiment," we'll assume Pamela hasn't taken her foot off the gas quite yet.
16 GIGI HADID: HAS A THING FOR EDGY POP ICONS
Gigi Hadid may have her own distinctive edge, but the model definitely has a type when it comes to who she dates. The Victoria's Secret Angel has dated Joe Jonas and One Direction sensation, Zayn Malik.
The bleached quiffs, casual dress sense, and chocolate brown eyes check boxes for both guys, plus they're both singers.
In 2015, Gigi and singer, Cody Simpson were an item. In the same year that she was posting Instagram snaps of the two of them, she'd managed to move onto Joe Jonas. The Daily Mail covered their split, although much like her previous relationships, Gigi's latest guy, Zayn Malik didn't last either. So who's next? Presumably someone with a voice.
15 KYLIE JENNER: RECYCLES GUYS WITHIN THE FAMILY
Kylie Jenner is pretty good at all things "turnaround." Her Kylie Cosmetics line turned an approximate $420 million in 2017 sales according to Forbes, and it looks like the reality star is big on recycling in her personal life, too. In 2014, Kylie started dating rapper Tyga, although she's since traded him in for her baby daddy Travis Scott.
It all gets a bit messy, though. Tyga and Kylie split, but Tyga then wound up with model Blac Chyna. According to CapitalFM, the two were set to get married, but celeb relationships tend to be rocky. This one gets even rockier, as Blac Chyna then ended up with Kylie's big brother, Rob Kardashian. The two are parents to baby, Dream, but not much about it was dreamy. They're both now single parents, and Kylie's relationship with Scott is considered suspect by fans.
14 KATIE HOLMES: EXCLUSIVE TO CONTROLLING MEN
Katie Holmes probably didn't know what she was in for. The Dawson's Creek star rose to fame for being cute as a button, and it wasn't long before Hollywood heavyweight, Tom Cruise had his eye on her. The two were married 2006, but with Tom being a Scientologist, it wasn't going to be an easy ride
The Sun reported all kinds of rules that Tom reportedly made Katie follow, including silent childbirth and a ban on "public dating" after their split.
Katie and Tom are parents to Suri, although the same newspaper reported that an"iron clad" ruling would prevent Suri from ever being welcome in the Church of Scientology.
Katie has moved on following her 2012 divorce, and we're really hoping this actress shifts to a different "type."
13 BRITNEY SPEARS: NOT INTERESTED IN SOPHISTICATED GUYS
Britney Spears never pretended to be the classiest of ladies, although with a net worth of around $200 million, she sure is rich. The pop icon has a bit of a trailer trash image, and that also applies to the guys she dates. We're waiving that for Justin Timberlake, whom she dated way back in the day, but it's been "bad boys" ever since for Britney.
Her 2004 marriage to Jason Alexander lasted just 55 hours, according to ABC News. The not-so-sophisticated approach continued with her very public marriage and divorce from Kevin Federline, with whom Britney has two kids. Britney is now 37 and trying to juggle being a mom with running a music empire. Fans have been worried about her, but she seems to be managing (ish).
12 BLAKE LIVELY: DEFINITELY LIKES THE NAME RYAN
Blake Lively sure does love the name "Ryan." The Gossip Girl actress had a whirlwind romance with actor Ryan Gosling in 2010, although she's best known for her longer-term relationship with Ryan Reynolds. Both guys are high-profile actors known for their "pretty boy" looks, but Blake isn't above showing her nasty streak.
In 2017, People covered the revenge-themed story of Blake wishing Ryan Gosling "happy birthday" by cropping him out of her Instagram. If you're wondering what that was about, Ryan Reynolds had cropped Blake out earlier that year for her birthday. So basically, as long as he's called "Ryan" and manipulates on social media, anyone called Blake is game?
11 JLO: HAS A THING FOR BACK UP DANCERS
Jennifer Lopez has enjoyed a hugely successful career, and the $360 million she's worth speaks for itself. The "Jenny From The Block" singer is also a judge on TV show, American Idol, but has she looked at her own judgment when it comes to relationships? In 2001, Jennifer married her back up dancer, Chris Judd, although the two only lasted a year.
It was back to dancers in 2011 though, when Jennifer got together with Casper Smart, although she did have her relationships and marriages with Ben Affleck and singer, Marc Anthony in between. The two are parents to twins, Max and Emme, but it looks like music and dancing are the only stable things in this woman's life. At 48, we're hoping this Latina lady settles down soon. Maybe A-Rod will deliver?
10 KOURTNEY KARDASHIAN: CASUAL DATING BUT ONE TRUE LOVE
You'd need to be a complete fool to think Kourtney Kardashian isn't still completely head over heels with baby daddy, Scott Disick. The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star hasn't had an easy love life. Still, that might be because she went for "bad boy" Scott, with whom she had three kids.
Just watch any episode of the show – she's constantly calling him, letting him back into her life, and basically letting him walk all over her.
At 38, Kourtney has moved on, relationships-wise. After keeping it all hush-hush, The Metro confirmed her reports that she was dating 24-year-old model, Younes Bendjima. The two have gone on luxury getaways together, but you're not fooling anyone, Kourt. It's blindingly obvious you still love Scott.
9 JESSICA SIMPSON: HAS A THING FOR FOOTBALL PLAYERS
With her blonde hair and daisy dukes, Jessica Simpson was an undeniable cutie. The Dukes Of Hazzard actress and singer started her relationships in the pop world, but it wasn't long before she'd found her "type." Her 2002 marriage to singer, Nick Lachey turned into a pretty public divorce, although that's what you get for having a reality show called Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica.
Putting her marriage behind her, Jessica moved onto pro footballers. She hit up the Dallas Cowboys with Tony Romo, before moving onto the New Orleans Saints with Eric Johnson. Jessica and Eric married in 2014 and have two kids, but the marriage fell apart. Maybe Jessica should go back to singers?
8 KATY PERRY: REPEATEDLY DATES PLAYERS
Katy Perry has made millions from her bubblegum-yet-edgy image, and she was brave enough to write a song called "I Kissed a Girl." Her track record with men is a little less independent though, as Katy seems to repeatedly date guys with a straying eye. First, there was British comedian and notorious womanizer, Russell Brand. Featuring for the second time on this list, there was also singer, John Mayer (who has pretty much dated everyone in Hollywood).
Like most women, Katy isn't immune to good looks. She fell for Pirates Of The Caribbean star, Orlando Bloom in 2016, although the couple confirmed their split one year later.
Orlando has been linked to a string of women including model, Miranda Kerr and Kate Bosworth, and it looks like Katy was "just another on the list" for this guy. You're a self-sufficient (and very rich) young woman, Katy. Get a grip!
7 PARIS HILTON: GUYS ONLY WANT HER FOR HER MONEY
Paris Hilton built her entire career on being a spoiled little rich girl, and we sure did see it on reality TV show, The Simple Life. Her love life however has been anything but simple. The heiress and socialite seems to be with a new guy every six months, and looking at her dating history, none of them seem very genuine.
Paris made headlines with a certain tape that circulated following her relationship with Rick Salomon. She then moved onto Nick Carter, Dough Reinhardt, and super-rich Stavros Niarchos, but something about all three just said "in it for the money." Paris is currently engaged to actor and model, Chris Zylka, although we've yet to see a wedding ring on that finger...
6 JENNIFER LAWRENCE: BRITISH GUYS WITH BLUE EYES
Jennifer Lawrence may only be 27, but she's already topped the highest-paid actress list. The Hunger Games actress raked in $20 million for one movie alone in 2016 according to Forbes, and who this girl dates is big news.
For Jennifer, though, the criteria seem to follow a pretty specific pattern. Basically, as long as you're British and have steel blue eyes, you're good to go.
Jennifer has dated British X-Men actor Nicholas Hoult, and you can see the icy blue eyes for yourself. Following their split, Jennifer got together with Gwyneth Paltrow's ex Chris Martin. Chris may not be an actor, but he fits the bill with the blue eyes and British passport. J-Law seems to have two very strict "laws" she abides by, so we're waiting to see who's next. Daniel Craig is British and blue-eyed, but he's married. Although with that, maybe he's someone Angelina Jolie could consider?
5 MADONNA: GUYS 20 YEARS YOUNGER THAN HER
Madonna sits on a very big (and very rich) throne. She can look down from it and pick whoever she wants to date, but like us mere mortals, the singer also has a "type." Madonna tends to go for younger guys, and as she approaches 60, the age gap is getting more and more visible.
The mom of six has dated heavyweights like Sean Penn and Warren Beatty alongside her marriage to Guy Richie, but her eyes now seem set on all things "youth."
When she was 50, Madonna dated dancer, Jesus Luz (who was only 22). It was a similar deal with Timor Steffens (30 years her junior). In 2017, The Daily Mail reported that the then 58-year-old was dating 31-year-old model, Kevin Sampaio. Of course, that was after she'd ditched Aboubakar Soumahoro, and he was just 26! Presumably, Madonna closes those eyes tight shut when she's blowing out candles on the cake.
4 KHLOE KARDASHIAN: A STRING OF BASKETBALL PLAYERS
Khloe Kardashian seems to have found true love with beau and dad-to-be Tristan Thompson, and the two are expecting their baby any day now. The Cleveland Cavaliers player pretty much has to split his time behind Ohio and California just to be with Khloe, but this isn't the first time she's dated, "basketball style."
Lakers star, Lamar Odom also had to play Kardashian ball back in 2007, when he married Khloe just one month after meeting her. Alongside being a Kardashian and developing her Good American fashion line, Khloe has really embraced her fitness of late. Her amazing phyisque is living proof, and her Revenge Body with Khloe Kardashian show says it all. Guess we can't blame her for eyeing up the sporty types, then.
3 MILEY CYRUS: BOY-NEXT-DOOR, PLEASE
Miley Cyrus seems to dedicate most of her energy shedding her formerly "cute" image. The singer and actress has taken on bold fashion and statement hair to earmark her punk persona, but her dating life is surprisingly traditional. Miley is still young, but she's definitely got a type. They come in all-American, boy-next-door packaging with names like Liam Hemsworth or Patrick Schwarzenegger.
In January 2018, following a Malibu shopping trip, The Daily Mail fueled rumors that the two had secretly gotten married, but the report was never confirmed. The couple were also spotted frolicking on the beaches of Australia. Miley may have a rebel image, but she'll always date a wholesome guy.
2 KATE MOSS: MAKES A BEELINE FOR INDIE MUSICIANS
Kate Moss has made no secret of her party girl image, and the model is frequently photographed stumbling in and out of clubs in the early hours.
Kate may be serious when it comes to her fashion line, but her dating spirit is more free-spirited.
Kate's relationship with British rocker, Pete Doherty had everyone worried, but Kate didn't seem to mind that he was a (possibly) bad influence.
Back in the day, Kate was with actor, Johnny Depp, but she quickly moved onto indie musicians. In 2011, Kate married musician, James Hince, although the two divorced in 2016. Her latest relationship with Count Nikolai von Bismarck is a little more upmarket, and The Mirror has repeatedly shown us pics of the two looking all loved up. Nikolai is nearly 15 years younger than Kate though, so presumably the "alternative" streak is still there.
1 KATE HUDSON: LITERALLY ONLY DATES ROCKERS
Kate Hudson may still be dominating Hollywood, but she's a total groupie at heart. The actress married The Black Crowes frontman, Chris Robinson in 2000, although like most celeb weddings, it didn't last. Following her 2006 divorce from him, Kate moved onto Muse's star, Matt Bellamy.
Just this month, The Daily Mail reported that Kate is expecting her third child with current beau, Danny Fujikawa. Three guesses what he does for a living. Yup, he's a musician.
Seriously, a leopard never changes its spots. If you read this and saw yourself or someone you know, hit share and let your bestie know which celeb she's basically echoing. It's unlikely she'll wind up with a Hollywood star, but stranger things have happened...
