“From the start of the show, Kelly named herself my TVM, or TV mom, by which she meant she was taking her character’s role seriously, beyond the pages or sets and out into the real world,” the 49-year-old actress reveals in her new memoir, “Talking as Fast as I Can: From Gilmore Girls to Gilmore Girls (and Everything in Between)“.
“In a maternal, protective way, she found most of my boyfriends at the time lacking, and once told me I needed someone who was more my equal, like ‘that wonderful actor on Six Feet Under,’” Lauren added (via ET).
Peter, 51, starred in Six Feet Under as Nate Fisher from 2001 to 2005, before joining Lauren in Parenthood in 2010. They’ve been together ever since.
“At our age we’d probably both been through ‘showmances’ that went south and made work an uncomfortable place to be,” Lauren explains in the book. “But ultimately, our mutual wariness gave way — it just sort of happened.”
Lauren and Kelly got together with their co-stars Alexis Bledel and Scott Patterson at a special screening and Q&A panel for Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life last night (November 29) at AMC Theater Time Square in New York City.
