10. How They Met
In the mid-90s to the early ’90s, Sarah Jessica Parker dated known party animal Robert Downey Jr. but after that relationship ended, those close to her knew she wanted something much more stable. Shortly after her split, Parker’s brother introduced her to Matthew Broderick in 1992 when he was directing Broderick in a play at the time. Three months after the introduction, Broderick finally phoned Parker and asked her out on a date. They then went to a small Manhattan cafe where he said she “talked a mile a minute,” and she said, “He just stared at me. It was like I was on a talk show. I started telling goofy stories.” The pair began dating immediately after and things got serious fast.
9. Broadway Love
It isn’t uncommon for actors to fall for each other, but Matthew Broderick and Sarah Jessica Parker’s connection goes beyond the big or small screen. After meeting while Broderick was starring in a play directed by Parker’s brother, Parker has starred in five Broadway shows while Broderick has been in 13. In 2015 Broderick even starred in the Broadway production of Sylvia which Parker originally starred in back in 1995 when it first opened.
