5. Perfect Match

Even if Kartheiser didn’t know it at first, Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner said he could tell they would get married from their very first meeting. “I told Vinnie that they would be great together. I was like, ‘Don’t blow it!’ Honestly, they’re a really good match. They’re both very down to earth, with a sense of responsibility and strong family ties. And they’ve been acting since before they can remember, which makes for a very special personality. It’s not just that I thought they would look cute together. Even with all of Alexis’ amazing qualities, I think that if she had not been such a good actress, he would not have been interested,” said Weiner in an interview with New York Magazine.
