Here's How Alison Brie & Dave Franco Met & Fell In Love

Alison Brie is opening up about just how she and husband Dave Franco met and fell in love.

While talking about their romantic comedy they wrote during quarantine on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, the 37-year-old actress shared her love story with Dave and how it started, while he was filming Now You See Me.

“It starts off in New Orleans at Madri Gras, where all great love stories begin,” she joked, before sharing the short story on the program.

“I was there with some friends,” Alison recalled. “It was some incredible matchmaking done by my friend Jules, after we ran into Dave at the airport. The two of them are friends and she had invited him out to dinner with us there. He was sitting next to her across the table and…my friend texts me under the table and says ‘You should hook up with Dave’…and I responded with ‘Yes please’ with a lot of thumbs up emojis. A very enthusiastic response.”

She went on, saying that Jules actually showed Dave the text.

“He was like ‘I’m in!’” Alison shared, saying that their friend asked him not to tell her that she showed him her text, before the same friend told her that she showed him her text.

Alison continued that her romance with Dave continued on after meeting up again in New York, where it was the “wining and dining, romantic portion of our meeting each other. He left a secret note in my sweatshirt on our last day of our trip which read ‘Come with me to Paris’.”

Check out her interview below, where she reveals why they didn’t use their love story as the basis for their rom-com.
