Dolly Parton is one of the most glamorous celebrities pop culture has ever known. From her beautiful, retro home to her bedazzled jumpsuits, she has an aura about her that screams glamour (via The U.S. Sun). While she is clearly down to earth, due to the way she uses her money for good (like helping fund the COVID-19 vaccine), she has captivated her fans with her glam aesthetic.
One thing about Parton that fans don’t know much about is her taste in men. According to Hello! Magazine, the singer and cultural icon has been married to the same man for 55 years! The couple met when Parton was just 18 years old, so the public has never gotten to see Parton date around. She married Carl Dean before she even struck fame. The pair have a strong relationship and part of that has to do with their lack of kids. On the topic, Parton shared, “Now that Carl and I are older, we often say, “Aren’t you glad we didn’t have kids? Now we don’t have kids to worry about.”
Dean and Parton are the perfect match, but it is interesting to think about what kind of men Parton might be attracted to. Recently, she shared she has a very unexpected celebrity crush that gives us an idea of the type of guys she’s into.

Dolly Parton shared with W Magazine that she has a very interesting celebrity crush. When it comes to men who tickle her fancy, it’s the host of “The Tonight Show” she chooses. Yes, the legendary singer has a crush on “Saturday Night Live” alum Jimmy Fallon.
According to People, Parton and Fallon have a great bond. She shared, “Well, I have a crush on Jimmy Fallon, but I’m big now, I can’t excuse myself on that!” she said while laughing, adding, “I think he is precious. He’s so funny. We get along so good.”
She continued, “Sometimes you never know who you’re gonna connect with. I’ve always had good luck with late-night guys, you know? I always had a nice relationship with David Letterman and with Johnny Carson.” Parton added, “I guess there’s something about that late-night people that kinda hits my fancy and I hit theirs somehow. I guess it’s ’cause you feel like you can be more free late at night. You don’t have to worry about what you say.”
Bet you didn’t see that one coming! Parton has a crush on not just Fallon, but also the entire late-night talk show host circuit! Looks like funny guys catch the “Jolene” singer’s eye, and we certainly can’t blame her for that.
