Stars are just like us! They, too, are seeking instant ass — and enjoy methodically swiping left and right. It turns out those celebs you randomly get on Tinder might not actually be false profiles — famous people really are using the dating app.

At a SXSW event, Tinder CEO Sean Rad revealed that while stars like Jamie Kennedy, Josh Groban, and Lindsay Lohan are all real members of the site, they get more left swipes than anyone because users think it’s a prank. (Yes, that’s exactly why someone would swipe left when they got Jamie Kennedy.)

To remedy the problem, Tinder is rolling out a verification process similar to Twitter’s. Soon, when you get Lindsay Lohan as a Tinder option, you can swipe right knowing you are one step closer to the kind of reality in Win a Date With Tad Hamilton! — or at least ending up on her fuck list.
