We polled celebs about their most knee-weakening romantic moments. Listen in as they reveal some surprising specifics.
Dog days—and nights
“If a man lets all of my dogs sleep in the bed with us, then that is the most romantic thing. You must love my dogs in order to love me. A man who is nice to my animals and doesn’t shoo them away—well, that’s the height of romance.”
“I think the most romantic thing is to see your baby in the arms of the man you love. I can’t think of anything in the world more romantic.”
“Faith [Hill] and I have romantic times on our farm. We ride around on four-wheelers, ride horses and play with the dogs and kids. We really whoop it up, which is very romantic.”
The off-screen smooch
“I think kissing in a darkened movie theater is definitely one of the most romantic things I’ve ever done.”
Put it in writing
“I’ll never forget the early days of our courtship when my husband Josh Brolin and I had an email relationship for some time. I never had communicated with someone via email in a romantic situation. The first email he sent me I knew he was a writer. That’s his passion, and he still sends wonderful love letters. It’s very romantic.”
“I proposed to my future wife the night we met at a restaurant. I fell in love with her the moment I saw her. It was that classic thunderbolt. It was a movie moment. My eyes locked onto this beautiful woman and I was done.”
“Johnny [Travolta] and I just celebrated our 15th wedding anniversary. I think the most romantic thing we do is communicate and we keep it honest. We also keep creating our relationship. The most romantic thing we do is celebrate our date nights. We include the kids a lot of the time on our dates. But then at a certain time we will say, ‘OK, it’s bedtime!’”
