Charlie Sheen and Denise Richards were together from 2001 to 2006, and even though they seemed crazy about each other for a good part of their relationship, their divorce and post-divorce life has been so messy that most of us forget that they were ever in love to begin with. It’s been over a decade since their union came to and, so we’ve collected these 9 things that most people don’t know about their relationship:

9. Meeting

They met while filming Good Advice in 2000, but it wasn’t until Richards guest starred on Spin City the following year that they began dating. At the time, Sheen had a reputation as a bad boy, but he had cleaned up his act back in 1998. On their first date, they hung out in Sheen’s condo watching the World Series. Richards was the one who made the first move that day. “We had an awkward little moment by the door. I thought, is he going to kiss me? Do I make a move first? Do we not kiss at all? When he hesitated, I thought, screw it. I’ll be bold and make the first move – and so I planted one on him. It was spectacular. Definitely butterflies,” she wrote in her memoir Real Girl Next Door.

8. The One

By their second date, the former Bond actress knew that the Spin City star was the one. “I knew that this is the one, but I wouldn’t tell him that. I didn’t want to scare him away by saying, ‘You’re my future husband!’ and have him run for the hills,” she told People.
