Freddie Prinze Jr. Reveals How His Relationship with Sarah Michelle Gellar Still Works After Over 2 Decades Together

Freddie Prinze Jr. is giving some great relationship advice while revealing how his relationship with Sarah Michelle Gellar is still working after all these years.

If you don’t know, the couple married in September of 2002.

“There’s no keys. There’s no rules. There’s nothing like that. I don’t believe in false expectations,” the 43-year-old actor told Us Weekly. “I just believe in knowing who you are when you start a relationship. And if you don’t, then that relationship probably isn’t going to work.”

He continued, “If you don’t know who you are when you get in that relationship, odds are the other person is going to have a big hand in defining what kind of person you’re going to be. Or, and worse, if you pretend to be someone else, that’s a lie you’ve got to live forever if you want that relationship to work out forever. So, knowing yourself is sort of the key to doing it.”

“I played video games since I was a little boy. Sarah knew I played video games. If she ever gave me a hard time about playing video games, Sarah and I would not be together. Period. There would be no us. We’d just be friends ’cause I’m not giving up something I love because you don’t think it’s cool. And conversely, Sarah likes what she likes. I don’t trash reality television. I don’t trash any. If she digs it, cool. If you love and respect someone, what brings them joy should make you happy, whether you’re involved with it or not,” Freddie continued. “So, let your girls watch what they want to watch. Let your dudes watch what they want to watch. Don’t give them a hard time. And if you find yourself in one of those relationships, maybe it’s time to have a conversation.”

We recently found out how Freddie and Sarah‘s relationship actually started and it’s all because of a twist of fate!

Sarah Michelle Gellar & Freddie Prinze Jr. Share Hilarious Exchange About Her Latest Outfit

Sarah Michelle Gellar and her husband Freddie Prinze Jr. are having a fun time trolling each other on Instagram!

The Scooby-Doo co-stars, ages 42 and 43, respectively, do not agree on one of Sarah‘s latest outfit choices.

It started when Sarah posted a photo of herself sporting a an all-black ensemble that included a knitted sweater, platform boots, and metallic joggers.

“When your husband thinks your pants are slightly ridiculous, what do you do!?!?” she captioned it. “Obviously you take tons of dramatic pictures, and spam him with them (and yes, I’m still wearing my daughters headband) more to come @realfreddieprinze.”

“No babe, trash bag sweat pants are obviously not ridiculous. 🤦‍♂️,” Freddie Prinze Jr. commented.

However, fashion designer Christian Siriano wrote, “Chiccc,” while actress Zoey Deutch commented with a fire emoji.

Sarah Michelle Gellar then added more photos in her Stories, writing comments like “Do I wear them again?” and “Do you think they will grow on @realfreddieprinze if I just keep wearing them?!?”

Freddie Prinze Jr. Says His 'Friends' Role Almost Went to This Oscar Winner!

Freddie Prinze Jr. is dishing on his guest starring role on Friends!

Back in season nine of the hit sitcom in the episode “The One with the Male Nanny,” the 43-year-old actor played Sandy, the male nanny for Ross and Rachel’s newborn daughter Emma.

In the episode, Ross didn’t approve of the “manny” because of how sensitive Sandy was, so Freddie‘s role only lasted one episode.

Now years later, Freddie is revealing that he almost didn’t get the role – and that it was originally offered to Tom Hanks!

“I wasn’t even supposed to be [Sandy], that was originally offered to Tom Hanks but he wasn’t gonna make it back from his film on time,” Freddie shared with Entertainment Weekly. “And so my agent called me and said, ‘Do you want to be on Friends? And I said, ‘Yeah, I’ll do an episode of Friends. That’ll be great.’ He said, ‘Yeah, it shoots tomorrow.’ and I was like, ‘What?’ He said, ‘Yes, tomorrow so I’ll send you the script.’”

After getting the role, Freddie said that star David Schwimmer was able to help calm his nerves on the day of filming.

“So I went in and I was totally nervous because it was on the day of shooting. I didn’t even get to do a read-through,” Freddie shared. “And David Schwimmer walked into my dressing room and he was so cool and so passionate and he had so much energy. He came into the room and was like, ‘You’re going to love this, man. It’s like a little two-act play and the crowd is so engaged, and so into it. You’ll have a ton of fun, don’t worry about a thing.’”

Sarah Michelle Gellar Reveals the Secret to Her 17 Year Marriage to Freddie Prinze Jr.

Sarah Michelle Gellar is opening up about what makes her relationship with Freddie Prinze Jr. work. They’ve been married since 2002!

“I think the truth of any relationship is that, whether you’re a couple, whether you’re friends, whether you’re business partners, is you have to put the work into a relationship. We live in a very disposable society and people don’t want to have to work. They want immediate reactions, they want immediate responses. It takes work,” Sarah Michelle Gellar said to Us Weekly.

She continued, “It takes work to have a good friendship. You have to call and check in and dedicate that time, and most people aren’t willing to put that work in. So to have a successful relationship, whether it’s marriage, whether it’s friendship, whether it’s business, you have to put the time, if you want to see the results.”

If you missed it, Freddie recently had to be replaced in a hot new CW show.
