We believe that every one of us has at least one celebrity crush, and we can all recall having pictures of our favorite boy band member or actress on the wall when we were kids. Since we are aware that there is almost no possibility that we would meet these people and make friends, celebrity crushes are enjoyable for normal people.
What about famous people who have openly confessed to having feelings for other famous people? According to research, more than 50% of Americans have experienced feelings for a coworker. And even celebrities occasionally develop feelings for a colleague with whom they collaborate. This is even more interesting because, unlike us, they might get the chance to meet in person. However, being a celebrity does not mean that the other coworker would have the same feelings for you.
Some celebs have admitted to having crushes on their co-stars, and described how they felt awkward or shy on set or how they were able to joke about it years afterward. Scroll down to see who are they.
