Jillian Fink is among those who get to live with her celebrity crush. She was a fan of her now-husband Patrick Dempsey and was super psyched when the "Grey's Anatomy" actor booked an appointment with her for a haircut back in 1994.

Of the secret to their longlasting marriage, the "L.A.'s Finest" alum said to PEOPLE, "But being able to communicate when you're unhappy and nipping it right away instead of letting it sort of fester, and then you have animosity and then it explodes - which we've gone through that one!"

Kate Middleton is just like other girls who idolized Prince William when she was younger. It was rumored that when she was 13, she had a poster of Prince William on her college dorm room wall.

The Duchess of Cambridge, however, denied the allegations, saying, "No. No, I had the Levi's guy on my wall, not a picture of William. Sorry!" Either way, the couple tied the knot in 2011 and is happily raising their three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.
