Who Is Jennifer Morrison Dating? Just Like Emma Swan, She Doesn't Need Arm Candy
We've been rooting for Emma Swan and Captain Hook to get together on Once Upon A Time for a full season now (well, at least until that whole "cursed lips" drama happened) but what about the woman behind the savior? Once Upon a Time Actress Jennifer Morrison may play the ultimate independent woman on Once Upon A Time, but much like her character, she hasn't been solo forever — even if she currently is now.So who has our lovely Once Upon A Time heroine connected with off-screen? Just like Ginnifer Goodwin (who plays Emma's mother Snow White and is welcoming her first child with husband Josh Dallas) Morrison has dated one of her co-stars on the ABC fantasy drama. Morrison and Sebastian Stan, who played Jeffrey the "Mad Hatter" on the show, dated in real life for about a year. Sources say that the two simply "grew apart," and, luckily for both of them, they didn't have to suffer through any awkward exes/co-star tensions due to Stan's limited role on the series. (Not that we aren't a little bummed about that — who didn't love Stan's crazy-eyed, misunderstood Mad Hatter?)
It wasn't the first time Morrison dated a co-star. Morrison and her House co-star Jesse Spencer made Cameron/Chase shippers freak out when Morrison and Spencer began dating after sparks flew on the set of the Fox drama. Unfortunately, their onscreen romance mirrored their off-screen one. Morrison and Spencer called off their engagement in 2007 after dating for three years, and their characters on the show filed for divorce after an insanely dramatic plot which involved Chase murdering a senator. (Sometimes these things happen. Usually they just happen on Scandal .)
Currently Morrison seems to be doing very well solo. Not only is she kicking (magical) ass on Once Upon A Time, but she just wrapped up her role on How I Met Your Mother (bye, Zoey), starred as Winona Kirk in Star Trek: Into Darkness , and took on the indie film world in Some Girl(s) alongside Adam Brody, the current husband of her ex-boyfriend Sebastian Stan's ex-girlfriend Leighton Meester. (Yeah, it's complicated.)
So who needs a guy? Right now it doesn't look like Morrison does — and neither does her magical counterpart. (Though let's be honest, if she does, she can always call up Captain Hook, am I right or am I right?.) These ladies are doing more than fine without the arm candy.
