7. How He Asked Her Out
Of course, Jared and Genevieve met on set, but how did he work up the courage to ask her out? “The story I tell amongst my friends is that she wouldn’t leave me alone, right? So finally I was like, ‘All right, yeah yeah, fine, I’ll go on a date with you, fine.’ But [in reality], she came on set and it was season 4, which was eight years ago. I thought she was cute and smart, and I remember she would always read books,” he said during an appearance on Live with Kelly. “But I kept on finding myself interrupting her. I’d be like, ‘So what’s your favorite Hemingway?’ [Then] I’d go in my trailer and look up Hemingway. I thought she was awesome and so I asked her out to lunch, and it turned into hanging out and talking and traveling, and it turned into dinner.”
