Los Angeles-born Haddish broke through to prominence on the hit TV sitcom The Carmichael Show. She has also won a Primetime Emmy Award for hosting the longstanding series Saturday Night Live and has been an executive producer and voiceover actor for various projects. Haddish has also been upfront about her experience of digital dating. When appearing as a guest on an episode of The Tonight Show in 2018, she chatted about signing up for a dating app. Although she didn’t name the particular outlet(s) she had registered with, she did go into some detail about the type of men she has made contact with – mentioning profiles were often deceptive!
Although Tatum’s breakthrough role was as a dazzling dancer in Step Up in 2006, he has since gone on to enjoy terrific success in goofball comedies, where his loveable persona has emanated chemistry with various co-leads. Much as he has become a veteran of red carpet events, he has also revealed a down to earth side, admitting feeling empathy towards individuals from working-class backgrounds. Although he is primarily known for ‘celeb dating app’ Raya, his role as a male stripper might spice up his profile page for any number of alternative dating apps!
Theron, hailing from the Transvaal in South Africa, is known as one of the world’s highest-paid and most respected actresses. And she is a model. And she has also admitted to using Tinder. Imagine coming across her in a chat room?
Ben Affleck began his screen career appearing in the independent coming-of-age dramas written and directed by Kevin Smith, such as Mallrats and Chasing Amy back in the 1990s. Since then he has evolved into a highly-respected screenwriter, director and producer. But for someone you might suspect would have A-list single females queuing up, not to mention being a long-term squeeze of Jennifer Lopez, he does admit to having signed up to dating apps. He did get back with Jennifer again 17 years after their first split, but what was he doing in-between times? Perhaps making a habit of swiping?!
Teen heartthrobs may not seem the most obvious candidates for online dating, but the New Zealand star of US drama Riverdale has endorsed the popular app Bumble.
After initially finding fame as a child actor in the popular American series Barney & Friends, Lovato rose to prominence in the musical TV show Camp Rock. The New Mexico-born actor and singer/songwriter have also released hit singles, her debut, ‘This Is Me,’ peaking at number nine in the Billboard Hot 100, and she has received Grammy Awards. Her dates have included Trace Cyrus, brother of Miley, and her Camp Rock co-star Joe Jonas, but Lovato has also gained attention for coming out as non-binary. Perhaps this open and progressive attitude to her sexuality was first kindled when she openly admitted to dipping into online dating. Following her breakup from actor Wilmer Valderrama, she signed up for the app Raya, leading to what she described as ‘decent dates.’
