I’ve been a big fan of Peter Krause since my all-time favorite show Six Feet Under. And I will still watch anything he does, like the short run Dirty Sexy Money, and the now often overly-sweet, overly-scripted Parenthood. But still, Parenthood is a decent show and has another actress I love, Lauren Graham. But until today, I had no idea Peter and Lauren were dating!
Lauren graces Redbooks’ October cover, and in the interview, she opens up about dating my TV boyfriend: “We met when I first came out here [in L.A., in 1995],” Lauren says, “but the timing wasn’t right. Though, I think we liked each other. I remember one day he asked me over to his house to play a board game–and that’s exactly what we ended up doing. So I was like: This guy doesn’t like me. But I was also like: Who actually plays a board game? It’s so interesting to me that there was clearly a connection there back then, but I don’t think either of us was ready. He’s obviously a very confident, appealing guy, but he’s shy, and so am I. We stayed friends over the years, and I’ve always been a huge fan of his work.” Lauren continues, “One of the things that’s been so fun [about this relationship] is that it’s so easy. And it’s a lot, to work with somebody and then spend time [at home] with them too.”
In the article, which hits newsstands September 21, Lauren also discusses her new movie, It’s Kind of a Funny Story, and talks about her upbringing, family, and career plans.
