Celebrity power couples tend to make the most headlines, but not every star requires someone who shares the limelight when it comes to finding love.

For every Beyonce and Jay Z, or Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis, there's a happy union between a celebrity and their somewhat unlikely match.

Here are 17 celebrities who ended up marrying totally normal people:

Reese Witherspoon
Reese Witherspoon married Jim Toth, a talent agent previously unknown to the public, after divorcing her first husband, actor Ryan Phillippe.

Some "normal" folks do work in the industry, of course. Reese Witherspoon (pictured) is married to agent Jim Toth, who has many celebrity clients.

Julia Roberts' husband Danny Moder is a movie and TV cameraman, but he could be sitting right next to you today and you would likely have no idea.

Tina Fey's husband Jeff Richmond may be totally unrecognizable to you, but he's a producer and composer who worked on her show among others.

TV Guide has published its annual list television's highest-paid actors, and there are some serious shake-ups in the 2014 pecking order.

For one thing, the number 1,2, and 3 spots all belong to Big Bang Theory cast mates.

Tim Allen
The former Tool Man's return to television has netted him some big bucks. Allen receives an estimated $250,000 an episode for Last Man Standing.

Yes, as you may have heard, Kaley Cuoco and her co-stars signed $90 million contracts after protracted negotiations, making them the most well-compensated cast on the small screen by a fairly wide margin.

Kaley and the Geek Squad (as Charlie Sheen dubbed them when he was the brightest star in the CBS galaxy) will pull an estimated $1 million an episode for the next three years, and will also enjoy an undisclosed portion of the show's profits.

Industry insiders say the TBBT actors may be the last stars to receive such astonishing paydays due to audience fragmentation brought about by cable and streaming services, as well as "cast churning" (the practice of frequently dispatching series regulars, say with a Valyrian steel blade).

Everybody has to start somewhere, right? Right. For some of Hollywood's best and brightest, that somewhere is on the playing field and not the movie set. 

Yes, it's true. Many of our favorite stars had aspirations of becoming professional athletes when they were children, just like you probably did. (But not me. I always dreamed of being a rock star. We can all see how THAT turned out.)

You might know that Justin Bieber loves to play hockey, but did you know he's also pretty decent at basketball? And did you know that rapper 2 Chainz was a star high school hoops standout in Atlanta?

Kate Upton, SI model, actress, and all around hottie used to ride horses! And then there's Duchess Kate Middleton who is great at basically everything she does, including besting Prince William in sailing.

Take a look at these 13 celebrity athletes who are probably better athletes than you. And me. (Hey, we're all good at something, right? Right. Let's keep telling ourselves that.)

Patrick Dempsey
When he isn't steaming up the screen as McDreamy on Grey's Anatomy, Patrick Dempsey likes to heat up the pavement behind the wheel of race cars.

March 17 is a day to drink green beer, celebrate the birth of Rob Kardashian and honor those from a wide range of industries.

What could bring a Grey's Anatomy star together with a few politicians, some actors, a game show host and one of the 50 greatest players in NBA history?

St. Patrick's Day, of course!

With an emphasis on the name at the center of this drunken holiday, we're here to raise a glass to famous folks such as Patrick Dempsey, Patrick Stewart, Patrick Henry, and, of course, the Saint whose death started this all.

Ellen Pompeo and Patrick Dempsey have signed two-year contracts to stay with ABC's Grey's Anatomy through the spring of 2016, according to reports.

The actors who have played Dr. Meredith Grey and Dr. Derek Shepherd since the show's debut in 2005 will keep the actors on the show through Season 12.

ABC has yet to officially pick up the medical drama beyond Grey's Anatomy Season 10, but it seemed more than likely before this and even more so now.

Fellow Grey's original Sandra Oh won't be joining them, however. The perennial Emmy contender announced in August that this spring is her swan song.

Six originals in all - Oh, Dempsey, Pompeo, Justin Chambers, Chandra Wilson and James Pickens Jr. - came into the current season with expiring contracts.

The future for the others is unclear, but with Ellen Pompeo and Patrick Dempsey, plus a bunch of newcomers on board, the show will go on ... for awhile it appears.

Sometimes life imitates art, or something like that.

Grey's Anatomy star Patrick Dempsey channeled his inner Dr. McDreamy this week when he helped rescue a teenager who careened off the road and overturned his car completely near the actor's property in Malibu, Calif.

The car had rolled repeatedly and was totaled.

Dempsey reportedly ran toward the car with crowbar in hand so he could pry the driver out of the wrecked Mustang, and was successful.

A neighbor called 911 and the police came, with paramedics treating the crash victim for a concussion, and stunningly nothing worse.

Patrick, of course, never mentioned any of this. No word who the kid who crashed is, but Shawn Ryan, the creator of The Shield, tweeted:

"True Story: Grey's Anatomy actor Patrick Dempsey pulled my friend's son out of an overturned car after bad accident on Tuesday. #GoodDude"

Thank about an #understatement.

Jim Carrey vs. Patrick Dempsey. Not a style showdown you were probably expecting in THG's Fashion Face-Off series, but a fun one just the same!

Both gents dressed down for the MTV Movie Awards. No ties required. Who do you think was the best dressed Sunday? Tell us by casting a vote:

Get ready to say your McByes, Grey's Anatomy fans.

Patrick Dempsey, who has been with the ABC series since its premiere and who has seen his career resurrected as the result of playing Dr. Derek Sheperd, has made it official: the 2011-2012 season will be his last.

"I do not know what’s going to happen to the other characters, but for me it’s done," the actor says in Italian Vanity Fair, saying the decision is “bittersweet because it’s been great and a great part of my life. But I can’t see me doing it anymore.”

Dempsey's rep tells E! News his client "was referring to the fact that his contract is up at the end of next season and we have no idea what the future holds," but rumors have ran rampant that both Dempsey and Ellen Pompeo will make season eight their last.

That actress' deal is also up next spring.

Can Grey's Anatomy go on without its two leads? Most likely. Creator Shonda Rhimes has made it clear she's open to continuing without Meredith and Derek and, hey, there's even another Grey on board in the former of Chyler Leigh's Lexie.

But would you watch the show without MerDer? That's the question, viewers. Answer it now:

People magazine's Sexiest Man Alive honor is quite coveted.

Fans and gossip sites like THG debate who it should go, but while debates can be heated, but most of us happily salute the winner, whomever it might be.

Most of us. Grey's Anatomy star Patrick Dempsey was none too pleased when he learned that Ryan Reynolds earned the title over him this year ...

If Grey's Anatomy has any fans left, tonight's two-hour fourth season finale is supposedly the night you've been waiting for!

Just kidding. The show still draws millions of loyal viewers. Yet it's been a long time since something interesting happened on it.

Patrick Dempsey Style

Well, that supposedly changes tonight. Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) and Derek (Patrick Dempsey) are going to be getting together for good.

We know this because the show's own creator and producer, Shonda Rhimes, has already said so publicly. We don't get it either.

Anyway, here's a photo from tonight's show. Meredith is holding what looks like champagne, ready to celebrate ... something.

More than three years later, will a terrific episode finally bring Meredith and Derek together - or will the hit medical drama jump the shark for good?

Also, Alex and Izzie may or may not get together, and there's another love triangle involving possible girl-on-girl action. Gotta love Grey's Anatomy!
