Celebrities Who Dated The Same People (PHOTOS)

Though it's filled with actors, musicians and everyone in between, Hollywood can seem like a pretty small town, especially when it comes to the dating scene.

It's no surprise then that sometimes pals end up "dating" the same people -- or at least manage to get the rumor mill going with the possibility of a hot hookup. From close pals like Jennifer Aniston and Courteney Cox to co-stars like Balthazar Getty and Matthew Rhys, some celebrities seem to cross paths more than one might think in Tinseltown.

In other cases, sometimes new friendships are formed thanks to failed relationships. Denise Richards and Brooke Mueller, who both have children with actor Charlie Sheen, were recently spotted out together with their kids. Hey, whatever works!
