Celebrity Valentines Revealed in New Survey From omg! on Yahoo!

No. 1 celebrity site names Jennifer Aniston and Johnny Depp as dream Valentine’s Day dates; Snooki and Justin Bieber as nightmare dates; and “Titanic” as favorite romantic movie

SUNNYVALE, Calif.--()--Jennifer Aniston is the number one female celebrity “dream date” for Valentine’s Day and Johnny Depp is the top choice for male celebrity date, according to a Valentine’s Day survey from omg! on Yahoo! (http://omg.yahoo.com), the number one celebrity news website. Amongst gay males, Ryan Reynolds is the top choice and Angelina Jolie earns the spot amongst lesbian women.

Omg! on Yahoo! asked 2,000 people for their picks for the best romantic movie, which celebrity they would cheat on a significant other with, which tween celebrities they would want to date their child, and other Valentine’s Day-themed questions.

Nightmare Dates

Many people said they would not want to take “Jersey Shore” star Snooki out on a Valentine’s Day date – outings with gossip-magnets Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian are preferred. A third of adults say it would be a nightmare to go out on Valentine’s Day with youngster Justin Bieber, even more so than dating recent social pariahs Mel Gibson and Charlie Sheen.

Celebrity Infidelity

Most people would be faithful to their partners, even when presented with hot celebrity alternatives. But among the roughly 50% of hypothetical female cheaters, Johnny Depp is the most popular candidate. Red -carpet sirens Jessica Alba and Angelina Jolie have the potential to break up a relationship, with about a quarter of men choosing them as their cheating partners. Those under age 35 are most inclined to take advantage of a celebrity affair.

Movies & Music

Despite the water’s frigidity, the heat between Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet made “Titanic” the top vote for all-time favorite romantic movie. Women – predictably – are bigger romantics than men.

Country/pop sensation Taylor Swift is the number one singer adults would choose to serenade them on Valentine’s Day, especially for men and those under age 35. Women most want Michael Buble to sing to them.

Parental Picks

Parents picked Dakota Fanning, Miley Cyrus, and Selena Gomez for their top choices as dates for their teenage sons. Selena, however, is the only one who is liked equally by moms and dads. Miley is much more popular among dads, while the wholesome Dakota is top choice for moms.

Moms and dads alike seem to be very protective of their teenage daughters, picking celebrity chastity-ring-wearer Nick Jonas as a date for the girls on Valentine’s Day.
