Every celebrity has fans who are slightly out of touch with reality. Probably the biggest issue you have to worry about when dating someone famous is the groupies. Women love men with power and money and the more money he has, the more women will throw themselves at him. It got so bad Wright was forced to move out of school and town. You now have an invitation as a plus one to attend some of the hottest parties and industry events.
You sit courtside at NBA games. The two of you go out for a night on the town and you enjoy a quiet, romantic meal at a four-star restaurant. And the more famous the celebrity, the deeper they will dig into your past. The arrest for shoplifting that happened a decade ago will become news. She stays home now when she doesn't feel like going out, and he's fine with that, and he's never given her any reason to not trust him when he's out without her.
He fully supports her in everything she does as well, even if it's not as "exciting" or "Hollywood. They support each other, they make sacrifices for each other, and it works for them. It's built on trust and communication and respect, the same as any relationship. They both come from strong family backgrounds and that family relationship is very important to both of them. It's worked out for them.
If you're into this guy, and there's a mutual background and respect-level, then I don't see why you wouldn't at least try it out.
You've built an elaborate fantasy around him after one date. If you feel like you get attached easily, then it's probably better to find someone local because by starting out long distance, you're getting attached to a dream. I work in show biz, know Oscar winners just had Thanksgiving dinner with one and guess what--plenty of successful people in entertainment have low-key spouses, pleasant family lives and enjoy quiet evenings at home. Your friend could decide that he really wants a PhD in art history, or to start a yarn shop or to keep acting and then direct.
You've had one date--I don't think you need to fret over what to wear to the Golden Globes or what to say to Jennifer Lawrence in the loo. OK, subtract all the Hollywood Celebrity bullshit. Which is what it is unless you're talking about, like, an actual Hemsworth. There are thousands of people here in Los Angeles "pursuing" famousness. Even if this person is a working actor, well, OK. At the end of the day, it's a job. You can't cruise the Trader Joe's parking lot in Los Angeles without almost hitting someone whose friends think they are about to become a huge movie star.
All that aside, your real question is "do I want to enter a long-distance relationship with someone I don't know well and have little in common with, but we hit it off on our one date? My answer to that question is no, just because I've been on enough great first dates with people who live in my city and occupy my same social or career orbit which haven't worked out.
This is a huge long shot, just in the grand scheme of how dating works. I don't think you need to shut this down, but I do think you need to be very realistic about what it is. Take it one day at a time. If he's in town and reaches out, sure. If not, don't sit around waiting for him. People in this situation say a lot of things they don't entirely mean, just because that's how first dates work.
I say No also, but mostly because actors are in the business of being charismatic and connecting with people. I think you had a nice date experience with someone who connects with others as a profession. There's no evidence it's more than a date, and yet you've spent a lot of energy on him already. I mean, its great that you had a great time!
And like I said, this person does that for a living, as a professional. You have evidence he's good at his career, and that's about it. You can and should ask these questions a few months and 10 or 15 dates in. Right now, there's nothing to really worry about or consider. I'm glad it was a great date! See if there's a bunch more before worrying or asking yourself tough questions.
I live in LA, so I feel like I'm reading this correctly. I agree that you're getting ahead of yourself. And I get it, sort of — two months ago I met a woman at an event on the east coast, we hit it off and after I got home I couldn't stop thinking about her. So despite me being in Seattle I asked if she was open to dating and she said yes. But enough about me although if you want to memail me with questions that's fine. If you do want to pursue this you need to treat this like any other casual dating situation even though the other person is really far away.
There are a lot of steps between where you are and this oddly specific picture of his career you're already imagining. You've been on one date — as wonderful as it was, you barely know each other. Make a list of all the concerns and possibilities that would be a dealbreaker, and talk to him about them. See what he thinks.

Careers change, especially for people in the entertainment business. Keep having fun dates with him and see where things go, romantically and professionally. If those things start to conflict, you can address them at that point, not when they are hypothetical.
