We rounded up 10 things you may have not known about Joshua and Diane’s relationship:
10. First Date
While Joshua and Diane were charming on the red carpet, their first date was almost a disaster. A few years ago, Diane sat down with Conan O’Brien to talk about the awkward night. Diane told the host how Joshua asked her out for drinks, but that he was under the impression they had agreed on a date. “I actually had plans with somebody else for dinner, so I know I didn’t say yes to dinner…so we’re sitting at the bar and it’s nine o’ clock and I’m ready to leave…and he says, ‘OK, let’s go, we have dinner reservations’. I felt really bad because he looked very eager and he put on a clean shirt and I said, ‘OK, fine.’” As if that wasn’t uncomfortable enough, Diane said things only got worse. When they were seated, she said the restaurant “was overgrown with these huge flowers, to which I had a huge allergic reaction to…I was sneezing and coughing, I couldn’t say anything, my eyes were watery, and I thought, ‘He’s probably gonna say let’s call it a day, let’s go home’ and he talked about himself for an hour and a half non-stop because he was so embarrassed.” Joshua offered to drive Diane back to her hotel, but his car was in rough shape. “The door was eaten by his dog, it smelled so bad…It was not cute. And then he leans in for a kiss and I swear to God at the end, I was like, ‘Should I slap him…?’ It was very uncomfortable,” Diane recalled. “I ran away, practically, and I thought, ‘This guy is never going to call me again or talk to me,’ and then he sent flowers the next day with a box of Kleenex…That was kind of cute.” Diane decided to give him another chance and the rest was history.
