Online dating services have become the preferred way for many busy singles to find love and companionship. It’s no wonder that many celebrities have turned to online dating services to search for Mr. or Ms. Right. No longer an embarrassment or a shame, online dating services are now the “in” way to meet that special someone. While not all celebrities who are rumored to have used online dating services have actually admitted it, a few have no qualms about telling the world they’re searching for love online. Here are ten celebrities who have either admitted to using online dating services or are strongly suspected of doing so.

1. Joan Rivers

Although she’s 76 years old, comedian Joan Rivers hasn’t lost any of that spunk that has made her famous all these years. This applies to her personal life as well. Rivers has admitted to posting ads on online dating sites such as Match.com. In 2006 she posted, “I love smart men, funny men, elegant men. If I had to choose between Brad Pitt stripped to the waist or an old George Clooney in a dinner jacket, George would win hands down.” Her profile on the site said she was looking for coffee and conversation. The self-proclaimed cougar met her most recent beau, 59 year old millionaire Norm Zada, who founded an adult magazine called Perfect 10, about women without plastic surgery. Yet he fell for Rivers, the queen of cosmetic procedures, anyway. Source

2. Halle Berry

Halle Berry

Gorgeous Halle Berry, who is recently single again after splitting from her boyfriend of five years, Gabriel Aubry, has confessed to frequenting online dating chat rooms and dating websites. “I am never who I am,” Berry told an interviewer from Contact Music magazine in 2006 about her experiences online. “I have been to a couple of dating ones just to see what everybody is talking about. I chime in and say a little fun stuff.” Maybe she’ll return to the world of online dating now that she’s on the hunt for Mr. Right once again. Source

3. Rivers Cuomo

Rivers Cuomo

In 2005, after withstanding a two-year bout of celibacy, Rivers Cuomo, the lead singer for the alternative rock band Weezer, told Rolling Stone magazine that he signed up for an online dating service (although he didn’t specify which one). However, after he submitted his profile to the website, he says that they responded, “We’re sorry, but there is no one anywhere in the world that is appropriate for you,” and so Cuomo says he gave up on online dating. He ended up marrying Kyoko Ito in 2006, a Japanese girl he’d known since 1997. Source

4. Stephanie Pratt

One of the stars of MTV’s reality series “The Hills,” Stephanie Pratt is no stranger to online dating sites. She has been on the live webcam dating site WooMe.com (according to the company). Pratt, who is the sister to “The Hills” star Spencer Pratt (who wed Heidi Montag) does not seem to have found love there, although her troubles with substance abuse, shoplifting and bulimia are still making news. Perhaps she will find love through her recent posing nude for PETA’s “Be Nice to Bunnies” iPhone application. Source 1 | Source 2 | Source 3 | Source 4

5. Chace Crawford

Chace Crawford

Actor Chace Crawford, who stars on the television show “Gossip Girl,” recently told Now magazine that he finds it hard to date and would gladly use an online dating service. “I was chatting to a friend about speed-dating and JDate.com — and I’m not even Jewish,” he said. “I have a bunch of different accounts that no one even knows about.” He said he’s wary of dating anyone, particularly American women, as he’s not sure who he can trust, and told the interviewer from the United Kingdom’s magazine that he’s open to dating a British girl.

6. Matthew Perry

Matthew Perry

Former “Friends” star Matthew Perry has reportedly used online dating site Rich Soulmate. In fact, when the United Kingdom’s Now magazine reported in 2008 that he had a profile on the site stating that he was “cute and adorable, yet pained and lonely,” the site received so many hits that it crashed. Whether or not he really had posted a profile on Rich Soulmate, it’s hard to say. Perry has dated many famous women through the years, including Julia Roberts, Elizabeth Hurley, and Neve Campbell. Currently, he’s rumored to be seeing actress Natasha Gregson, Natalie Wood’s oldest daughter. Source 1 | Source 2

7. Charlie Sheen

Charlie Sheen

Charlie Sheen is rumored to have used online dating site MillionaireMatch.com. The site claims their dating service is used by “CEOs, pro athletes, doctors, lawyers, investors, entrepreneurs, beauty queens, fitness models, and Hollywood celebrities.” Whether or not Sheen was one of them remains to be seen. Of course, everyone knows his current marital problems with wife Brooke Mueller. Perhaps he’ll be returning to the world of online dating soon. Source 1 | Source 2

8. Lindsay Lohan

Lindsay Lohan

Lindsay Lohan has had her share of media coverage over the past few years, most of it negative. It’s no wonder that she might have a hard time trying to find someone to date. In 2009, it was reported that she had broken up with girlfriend Samantha Ronson and was looking for love online. Rumors circulated that she had posted a profile on EHarmony.com (the mock video she filmed that was circulated on the Internet and posted on FunnyorDie.com turned out to be a joke). Of course, with celebrities, it’s hard to say whether a profile posted on an online dating site is really theirs. So-called celebrity profiles are commonly faked on these sites. Lohan has never said publicly if she would consider online dating, but with her track record, it might not be a bad idea. Source 1 | Source 2

9. Jennifer Aniston

Jennifer Aniston

Poor Jennifer Aniston has been so unlucky in love. She lost hubby Brad Pitt to that conniving wench Angelina Jolie. It seems that she has finally given up on reconciling with Pitt. This year it was reported that Aniston has hired a professional online matchmaker, Kelleher International, paying them six figures to help her find the love of her life. It has been reported that Aniston is so anxious to finally find Mr. Right she’d pay an agency a million bucks to help her. Here’s hoping she’s successful in her search and doesn’t ever cave in to take Brad back. You go, girl! Source

10. Tila Tequila

Tila Tequila

Reality star Tila Tequila is no stranger to searching for love, as her MTV program “A Shot at Love with Tila Tequila” states in its title. Live webcam dating site WooMe.com claims she’s been a member of their service. She has never confirmed nor denied this claim, but has had her share of volatile relationships. Most recently, she dated football star Shawne Merriman and claimed to have been choked by him. Her fiancé, Casey Johnson, died in January 2010 of diabetic ketoacidosis. Tequila announced shortly after his death that she was pregnant, and is also trying to adopt Johnson’s daughter and a child from Haiti. Sounds like right now she might be a bit too busy to search for love online. Source 1 | Source 2 | Source 3 | Source 4
