When Busy Spoke About Their Love

Philipps spoke to the Wall Street Journal in 2012 about their meeting, and it was love at first sight. She said,

“We were set up to be friends by a mutual friend, who thought that we would really love each other. And we did. We fell instantly in love...It was right before I got [Dawson’s Creek ]. We shot that television show in a small town in North Carolina, so it’s a very heightened experience when you’re away from all of your actual friends and family. We became each other’s everything in that time.”
