Celebrities on Love and Relationships

Their relationships may not last but with all the hooking up and breaking up in Hollywood, stars certainly have interesting things to say about love. Read on for their words of wisdom.


Beyonce Knowles



“Trust is really important, just in relationships in general. I really don’t like people that aren’t real people around me at all. I don’t like people that are ‘yes’ people. I don’t like people that tell me what they think I want to hear.”





“Breaking up is a natural evolution when you try to figure out what you want in life. If you’re with an individual who isn’t moving in the same direction at the same rate that you are, it ain’t going to work.”


Scarlett Johansson



“I’m just a big believer in ‘you must love yourself before you can love anybody else,’ and I think for me that breeds the most inspired relationships…”


Lucy Liu



“I try to believe like I believed when I was five … when your heart tells you everything you need to know.”


Sean Penn



“I like to believe that love is a reciprocal thing, that it can’t really be felt, truly, by one.”


Tom Hanks



“There’s no substitute for a great love who says, ‘No matter what’s wrong with you, you’re welcome at this table.'”


David Schwimmer



“True love cannot be found where it does not truly exist; nor can it be hidden where it does.”


Jada Pinkett-Smith



“Pack a lunch and go to the park. Even a drive—and then pull over on the side of the road! Think of places outside that are comfortable to have sex. Does he have access to his office? Have a fantasy date. Be his secretary! Be sneaky. Your girlfriend’s house at a party. The bathroom! A guest bedroom! Just switch it up. Anything like that can keep it going. Anything it takes to keep the flame alive.”


Camille Cosby



“…Because you are two different people, and you have to respect that. You have to learn not to project your stuff onto the other person. You have to give the other person space to do what he or she wants to do, to not be threatened by his or her absence or achievement”


Julia Roberts



“You know its love when all you want is that person to be happy, even if you’re not part of their happiness.”





“To be brave is to love someone unconditionally, without expecting anything in return. To just give. That takes courage; because we don’t want to fall on our faces or leave ourselves open to hurt.”


Woody Allen



“The heart wants what it wants. There’s no logic to these things. You meet someone and you fall in love and that’s that.”


Jennifer Aniston



“The best smell in the world is that man that you love.”


Marilyn Monroe



“It’s better to be unhappy alone than unhappy with someone.”
