Whether it be Brad Pitt's infamous divorce with Jennifer Aniston in favor of Angelina Jolie, or whirlwind rumors of secret liaisons, affairs, dramatic romances and catfights between exes, it often seems Hollywood is nothing but celebrities on a catastrophic carousel with other celebrities when it comes to marriage and dating. But hidden in the mix of drama, there are several celebrities who married non-celebrities, and met in surprisingly ordinary ways.

Amy Schumer is one of them. The comedian, 38, is married to Chris Fischer, a professional chef and farmer from Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts.

How did they meet? Amy Schumer took a weekend trip with her personal assistant, Molly Fischer, to Martha's Vineyard. Molly Fischer's brother turned out to be Chris, who put his professional cooking skills to good use by preparing a meal for them.

Amy saw him again by accident while waiting for her dog. Then they were in charge of planning a birthday party together, and before you know it, they had chemistry and began dating. The two married in 2018, and had a son, Gene Attell Fischer, in 2019.

Amy Schumer, who's always been as down-to-earth as she is funny, has been delightfully normal in her search for love before. Amy met her last boyfriend, Ben Hanisch, on a dating app called Raya.

Furniture designer Ben, who is not famous for anything but dating Amy Schumer for a year-and-a-half, was simply Amy's first match on the app. The split wasn't high-octane Hollywood drama, either, with Amy's representative assuring the media the break-up was amicable. "Amy and Ben have ended their relationship after thoughtful consideration and remain friends," the rep said, in 2017.

Amy and Chris' marriage has turned out well so far, with Amy gushing about how "grateful" she is for her husband on their one-year anniversary last month after Chris impressed her with how supportive he was while baby Gene was sick.

"It’s my anniversary to marrying this guy" the comedian captioned an adorable Instagram photo of the chef, 40, sleeping, on February 13. "I'm really glad we got married." Famed model Christy Turlington congratulated the couple and calmed Amy's fretting about her baby's first fever, commenting: "Happy Anniversary … Gene is building up his strength and immune system."

Despite Hollywood's reputation, Amy Schumer is far from the only celebrity to be happily married to a non-celebrity.

Matt Damon is married to Luciana Bozan, a bartender he met during filming Stuck on You in Miami, and the two have been going strong since 2005. Christian Bale married his co-star's personal assistant, Sibi Blazic, who he met at a barbecue. Natalie Portman tied the knot with a ballet dancer, Benjamin Millepied, who served as dance choreographer on 2010's Black Swan; they married two years later. Hollywood's reputation for drama and short relationships might just be a selection effect, resulting from the most sordid—or high-profile—relationships making news.
