Why we love it when celebs date celebs

We'll admit it: when it comes to celebrity relationships we are selfish. We only want them dating each other. We love the Brangelina's and the Bennifers. We enjoy feeling like we know both parties involved and hearing all the details from where they go to dinner to what they are buying each other for Christmas to what they are naming their child. We then discuss their relationship as if they are two friends of ours who suddenly got together.The InsiderThe Insider

Sure, it may be better for them to date a "normal" person, as they are less likely to be followed by paparazzi and more likely to live a more average lifestyle, but then we lose out. Their private life is actually private. We hear less about them and thus suddenly care less about them. Think about it: David and Victoria Beckham, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes--we know all about their lives and their kids. Now take Matt Damon. He's a huge star, but who is his wife? Some "normal" woman--we're not sure what her name is or what she does. Do they have a kid? We think so, but we can't remember. (We looked it up--they have two daughters and his wife has one from a previous relationship.) When a big star dates a "normal" woman with a career outside of the entertainment arena, we don't think to ourselves, "oh he's so down to earth" or "wow that could be me." No. We don't like that other person because they have disrupted nature and taken him off the market and away from their fellow famous people. Celebrities go out with other celebrities. That's just how it should be. There is no other acceptable dating pool.

Today we found out that Jennifer Aniston is reportedly dating fellow actor Bradley Cooper. The duo met up for a Grey Goose and pineapple in the L2 Lounge in Washington D.C. on July 18 at 11:30pm. An insider says they sat alone in a corner and Jen "kept her hand on Bradley's leg most of the time," while "Bradley kept whispering in her ear and kissing her lips and neck." Apparently they left the bar arm-in-arm around 1:00am. Besides being excited at the prospect of a Brad and Jen 2.0, we actually think they would make a great, fun couple. Well, based on the info we know about these two celebrities we've never met before. And if they are a legit couple we'll be even more psyched to see them co-star on the big screen (as they did in "He's Just Not That Into You").

So there are the celebs who date celebs and the celebs who date "normal people," but you know who doesn't fall into either category? George Clooney. And it makes us crazy. We are so thrown off by his dating behavior it actually upsets us. We can understand how desirable A-list star would hook up with and even date a random hot waitress, but in Clooney's case he either knows nothing about their pasts or doesn't care, because they all have questionable reputations and nude photos on the internet. Remember his ex-girlfriend Sarah Larson? The Las Vegas cocktail waitress accompanied Clooney to the Academy Awards, and then skanky photos appeared of her virtually nude and making out with other women. Then he romanced Krista Allen, the softcore TV actress. Clooney's new girlfriend, Italian actress Elisabetta Canalis, also has taken some scandelous photos. She also apparently played a topless nun in a recent film. She's currently the host of MTV's TRL in Italy and had a minor role as "Lady in Castle" in "Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo." Sure she's gorgeous, and she may be a very sweet lady, but we want better for our George! Wtf!

Yes, there is obviously a lot more to life than who a celebrity is dating. It's not that serious. But when it comes to who the stars are courting, wouldn't you rather see two big names join forces?
