Type “actors who date models” into Google and you’ll get an infinite string of hits that pretty much includes every male actor and most male musicians working today.

These 10 women have nabbed themselves pretty models, however, and most are multi-talented men who have branched out into acting and other creative pursuits.
Emma Watson and George Craig
Emma Watson, the glorious Hermione of the Harry Potter film series, is starting young with her celebrity pursuit of model boyfriends.

Notable acting gigs include soap Neighbours, film Moulin Rouge, and cult TV fave Doctor Who. According to Music Rooms, Kylie has been dating Spanish male model Andres Velencosco for nearly two years, and the relationship is still going strong.

Jane, Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle and Mr. Brooks. You may know Ashton Kutcher more from his acting gigs on the popular That 70s Show, films like Just Married, Valentine’s Day, and Killers, or from his stint as public practical joker on Punk’d. The truth is, he also had a successful modeling career; People magazine notes that he was modeling for heavy-hitters like Calvin Klein and Abercrombie and Fitch.

Since then, she’s been a tabloid staple while dabbling in fashion, music, and acting, with her best success in a West End production of Chicago and a 3rd place finish on Dancing With the Stars. After struggling continually with pain killer addiction, a complicated relationship with her dysfunctional family, and the brutal glare of the public eye, Kelly deserved a model. She found one with the lanky, angular faced Luke Worral, whose had extensive success modeling for the likes of Marc Jacobs, Vivienne Westwood and Juicy Couture. The two became engaged in 2009, but as OK! Magazine reports, the two split when it was discovered Worral had been cheating on her.

Miley Cyrus and Justin Gaston
Hannah Montana star and pop/country singer Miley Cyrus caused a stir in 2008 when she jumped into the model dating very early with 20 year old model Justin Gaston. (The E! show The Soup famously turned their “It’s Miley!” refrain during segments to “It’s a felony!”) As People magazine notes, the handsome Justin modeled for Kenneth Cole and Guess, as well as landing a short run on Nashville Star. He’s currently pursuing his own country music career. After 9 months of dating, Miley and Justin split up, and she’s moved on to hunky actors like Liam Hemsworth.

In 2007, Hello Magazine confirmed she’d found a new love in Nathan Bogle, a Paris and Milan runway model who’d also done shoots for DKNY, Armani, and other top designers.

She has several projects in the pipes, including the afore-mentioned rom-com with model/actor Ashton Kutcher.
Jennifer Aniston, Cameron Diaz and Paul Sculfor
It’s inevitable that women who date handsome models will end up dating the same one. Jennifer Aniston, who became famous as Rachel on TV hit Friends, became equally famous for her marriage and subsequent painful split from actor Brad Pitt. Jennifer took a page from the male playbook and drowned out her sorrows by dating a sexy British model, Paul Sculfor. UsMagazine lists him as a former boxer and construction worker (hello, muscles!) who has modeled for the likes of Dior and Gaultier.
