“First of all, I saw him before he saw me, and when I saw him, I was like, ‘I want that.’

“And then when he saw me, I just pretended like I didn’t see him.”

She says about her husband: “I think it’s really beautiful to be with someone who is so supportive and so loving,

“We’re so similar in so many ways. We’re like mirrors for each other. And I just really love that human being.”

The actress shared further details, even adding that she was wearing a cheeky graphic tee that played a role in her meeting Jackson.
