Nickelodeon star Jennette McCurdy is best known for her role as Sam Puckett in the shows iCarly and Sam and Cat, but now she's the talk of Hollywood thanks to her new relationship with NBA star Andre Drummond. On the surface there isn't anything odd about the couple, other than their almost two-foot height difference. But the way this couple began dating isn't a usual occurrence in Hollywood.

The star opened up about her online relationship in an essay she wrote for The Wall Street Journal: "I read the guy's Wikipedia page...confronted by statistics and a bunch of basketball jargon, I gathered that he was gifted at basketball... and super, super tall. Not yet satisfied with my knowledge of this guy's deal, I backtracked on his Twitter page a few months and checked out his Instagram... he appeared personable, youthful, and fun. And judging by the amount of me-related posts he had shared, it seemed he had been expressing his crush on me for quite some time. I found it sweet, gutsy, and flattering. It's hard not to be impressed by a boy who will express his feelings for you in front of hundreds of thousands of people. I followed him back on Twitter and sent him a public message. We had a brief banter and then he sent me a private message with his phone number. Inevitably, I utilized it."
