One might think that celebrities would have all the luck dating without making much of an effort. But it turns out that celebrities use online dating just like the rest of us. Bustle tells us of 13 celebrities who have used dating apps.
If you’ve ever felt weird about swiping right, have no fear: plenty of celebrities have admitted to using a dating app. Yes, it’s true. More celebrities than you’d think have taken to their phones in the pursuit of love (or simply a casual hookup, this is a no judgment zone here!) and some have spoken candidly about their experiences with dating apps, further proving that celebrities are just like us normal people. Dating woes don’t escape celebrities simply because they’re famous, and that’s actually so refreshing to hear.
Here is the list of 13 from Bustle:
- Hilary Duff
- Britany Spears
- Ronda Rousey
- Katy Perry
- Chelsea Handler
- Lindsay Lohan
- Andy Cohen
- Eric Stonestreet
- Erin Heatherton
- Ben Flajnik
- Josh Groban
- Rob Gronkowski
- Dane Cook
All of these folks have used tinder or similar apps.

So, why does a celebrity use online dating? Why do any of us look online for a date? The strengths of online dating work well for celebrities who surprising live somewhat cloistered lives. Online dating allows you to meet more people and allows you to screen them before letting them into your life.
Even Celebrities in the C List Use Online Dating
Page 6 says that there is a private dating app that C-list celebrities use to find love.
Launched in March, Raya quickly became known as the online dating app for all the people too cool to online date. It’s a virtual Soho House with a curated membership of artist and model types, and, of course, a few celebrities thrown in for good measure.
Joe Jonas, Kelly Osbourne, Moby, DJs Skrillex and Diplo, “Catfish” host Nev Schulman, Raven-Symoné and model/celeb scion Patrick Schwarzenegger have all been spotted on the app. Some “Dancing With the Stars” pros are allegedly members, as is film director Paul Haggis. Last month, Page Six reported that Courtney Love and her 15-years-younger new boyfriend, director Nicholas Jarecki, are on Raya.
From the description it appears that this is the app for folks whose goal is to reliably find sex on the first date.
