“I think you’re getting the more subdued, calmed down Jerry actually. You’re getting the more mature, fatherly Jerry, the lessens learned Jerry. I had the actual energetic Jerry,” SMG said.

She added, “I should also tell you that the high school part has all gotten confused because I was a freshman and he was a senior. He never acknowledged me. It was only later that you would actually talk to me.”

“Listen, I was a senior. I didn’t want to come off as too much of a predator. I respected age differences and everything. By the way, this is not a filter. You have never seen me blush as much as I have on this show,” Jerry said. “You look beautiful. I’m so happy for you. I follow you on social media.”

It’s not clear when the two stars actually dated, but they did attend the 1998 Emmy Awards together when she was 21 and he was 24. At the time, she was starring in Buffy the Vampire Slayer and he was starring in the series Sliders.

SMG is promoting a new series that just debuted on Netflix.
