8. How They Met

They first met on the set of the movie Gothika in 2003, which starred Robert Downey Jr. and Halle Berry. Susan was a producer on the film. According to her, it wasn’t love at first sight. In fact, she thought he was weird. “We were up in Montreal prepping for Gothika, and we had lunch with the director and Halle Berry,” she told The Hollywood Reporter. “Everybody else ordered Japanese, but Robert told us how oatmeal was the ‘superfood.’ He brought his own packets of oatmeal to have at lunch. And he had this box of various herbs and stuff. And then he started doing these yoga moves. I mean, he was interesting but weird.”


7. Getting Together

They had their first date while they were working on the set of Gothika. They’ve been working together for a few weeks when he asked her to grab dinner with him while they were at the gym working out. It was while she was waiting for him in the lobby that she began to notice her attraction to him. “I remember looking up at him and suddenly thinking, He’s really cute,” she told Harper’s Bazaar. Their romance blossomed quickly after that.
