Before they were a couple, all Freddie Prinze Jr wanted to do was cook for Sarah Michelle Gellar https://t.co/ySt3FRyXkJ— JustJared.com (@JustJared) April 13, 2020
For some reason, Freddie Prinze Jr. has done an interview with US Weekly, talking about when he first became friends with wife Sarah Michelle Gellar. They met during filming of I Know What You Did Last Summer in 1997.
Since she didn't have a driver's license and they were filming in a small town, Sarah relied on Freddie to drive her an hour to the nearest gym. They began to get to know each other during these drives, she a New Yorker and he a Los Angeles boy, discussing life and their different philosophies on just about everything.
Freddie says of the start of their friendship: “By the end of the movie, I just wanted to be friends with her because I thought she was too skinny and I wanted to cook for her. Because that’s what my family does. And so, we started this weekly barbecue thing at her house, and me and my cousins would come over and cook food for her and her friends. And then we’d make sure everybody ate, and that was kind of how our friendship began.”
The couple began their romantic relationship in 1999, got married in 2002, and are now parents of daughter Charlotte, 10, and son Rocky, 7.
