If you haven’t tried online dating before now, there are many reasons why you should. You’ll find this method of touching base with prospective partners so convenient. Apps can be downloaded to your smart device, providing 24/7 access to a seemingly neverending list of singles to choose from.

You’ll find the relaxed atmosphere of a hookup dating site is always conducive to flirty conversations. What’s more, you just never know who you might hook up with. Hollywood celebs and pop stars sometimes browse these matchmaking platforms! If you find that hard to believe, here are six top stars who have been known to dabble in digital dating.

Zac Efron

Efron rose to fame as one of the leading characters in the hugely successful High School Musical trilogy, before flexing his acting muscles in a variety of diverse roles. Having dated a selection of well-known beauties, you would assume Efron would be one of the last people you’d suspect of getting into virtual matchmaking. But he has admitted to using Tinder – although he claimed nobody ‘swiped right.’ Perhaps users were suspicious of a fake profile? Don’t you ever make the same mistake!

Katy Perry

Singer/songwriter and TV talent show judge Perry originally started as a gospel singer before switching to pop music and launching her meteoric career. Her controversial debut single dabbled in bi-curiosity, ‘I Kissed a Girl,’ and became a massive hit. After splitting from John Mayer back in 2014, she revealed her love of digital matchmaking, giving her reason for not being seen with a partner for a while as being because ‘I’m really deep on Tinder!’

Sharon Stone

Stone may be in her 60s now, but she is still regarded as hot Hollywood property, with numerous successful movie performances under her belt. She rose to superstardom playing a femme fatale in the erotic thriller Basic Instinct in the 1990s and has gone on to win awards. When interviewed, she mentioned having dabbled in online dating but bemoaned the lack of chemistry she’d felt with other singles. We’ve all been there! Perhaps she should take a leaf from the book of so many other singles – if at first, you don’t succeed, try and try again!

Ben Affleck

Californian Affleck is a multi-talented actor, director, screenplay writer and producer, who has won Academy and Golden Globe awards. A onetime child actor, he is now recognized as one of Hollywoods’ big hitters, co-owning the movie production company Pearl Street Films. He has been known to use dating apps in the past, although when asked which ones, he said, ‘Brinder, Grinder … Bumble, Humble …’ These are not real apps. But maybe he was trying to divert attention.

Lindsay Lohan

Another former child actor, Lindsay Lohan’s career began at the tender age of three when she was signed to a modeling agency. Her starring role in 2004’s Mean Girls propelled her to the position of a teen idol, leading to a glittering career, buffeted by spells in rehab. Lohan has also dabbled in fashion and describes herself as a producer and entrepreneur. She has also been vocal about positive experiences of using dating apps.

Emilia Clarke

London-born Clarke made an inauspicious start before the camera, featuring as a guest in the BBC medical drama Doctors. But being cast as Daenerys Targaryen in the phenomenon Game of Thrones brought her global recognition and Emmy nominations. Time named her one of the 100 top influential people in the world. She has also bigged up Raya, the celeb dating app. Who knows what other sites she might try in the future?!
