Why Stars Love Regular Girls
We've got some good news for all you "girls next door" -- after their big-time breakups, it seems Hollywood's sexiest bachelors are turning to regular girls for condolence. "Extra's" got the scoop on why sexy stars are stepping out with civilians.
"There are definitely advantages to dating somebody outside the business," says People magazine columnist Zorianna Kitt. "To have somebody who is out of the spotlight, who leads a normal, balanced life, often provides the balance that the celebrity needs."
And to prove the point, look no further than a trio of recently
separated stars, beginning with Ben Affleck,
who -- since his breakup with Jennifer Lopez -- has laid low
with new love, Enza Sambataro, a TV sales exec he met at a charity
event in Boston. "She's been seen with him constantly and
they've been having a good time," Kitt tells us.
After his breakup with Brooke Burns, Bruce Willis
has been recently spotted getting cozy with a 20-year-old named
Elanora at a bar in Rome. And just Wednesday night he was seen
with a model in New York. Willis has also been out on the town
with "Ocean's 12" co-star George Clooney. "They
have been hanging out in Italy and Amsterdam, where the two
have been partying it up with the locals," says Kitt.
And hot off the heels of his split with Rebecca Romijn-Stamos,
John Stamos has been spotted with an unknown
blonde mystery woman of his own.
Finally, another "Ocean's 12" star, Matt Damon,
is also enjoying a low-profile love life. After romances with
Wynonna Ryder and Minnie Driver, the dashing star is now dating
an interior designer named Luciana Barroso. According to Kitt,
"We don't really know how they met, but she's hanging out
with him on the set of 'Ocean's 12.'"
