Even though Hollywood can make for rocky relationship territory, there's something to be said for those who brave love in the city of angels. Here's how these seven couples like to spend their time with their other halves.

When they can manage, Kristen and Dax just like to hibernate. She told SheKnows that she prefers a night in watching the boob tube. "My ideal date night is just staying home, watching the boob tube, making dinner and closing the windows and doors!"


Emily Blunt and John Krasinski

This cute couple stresses the success that can come from simply making it a priority to spend time together. "For me, it feels like the most fun is just the time you spend, not actually what you're doing," John told SheKnows. Their love story is one guided by the ol' finding-love-when-you-least-expect-it theory. "I knew right away," he said about his British beauty.


Kendra Wilkinson and Hank Baskett

Now here's a couple that likes to spice things up! "You have to be creative," Kendra told SheKnows during our at-home interview. Even if date night is a simple night at the bowling alley or a couple glasses of wine, they believe that foreplay starts at the bowling alley. Before anyone cries sex scandal, Kendra elaborates, "Flirting with each other while bowling, grabbing each other's butt, being fun and playful."


Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan

Doesn't every girl want to know what a date night with Channing Tatum is like? Channing told SheKnows that he and Jenna cut off all ties and have staycations together. "Chill out, turn off phones, no internet, no nothing. [We] sit and watch some good movies and see how many bottles of wine we can get through and see what we can talk about." Lucky Jenna! We'd take a lights out sesh with Channing any day!


Ashley Hebert and J.P. Rosenbaum

After going on some of the most, for the lack of better terminology, kick-ass dates over international waters on The Bachelorette, Ashley and J.P. faced the task of making it work in "normal" life. Luckily, the couple likes to be a pair of homebodies. "We just stay home, make dinner, cuddle on the couch and watch movies. We're looking for normalcy," Ashley told SheKnows.


Drew Barrymore and Will Kopelman

Drew Barrymore is no stranger to making relationships work in the public eye. While she's had her ups and downs, she has learned a thing or two along the way, including saying goodbye to the "bad boy thing." With her fiance Will Kopelman, she likes a date night that's a little more old fashioned. "I love going to an old revival movie," she told SheKnows.


Sherri Shepherd and Lamar Sally

This foxy lady has a logical view when it comes to love: compromise! When we asked about her latest Valentine's Day date night, she said, "If you ask my husband, some hot chocolate and some wax. [But] I'm very romantic. If we could go somewhere and have an amazing dinner and then do the wax and the hot chocolate... do a little compromise there."
