How Did Joshua Jackson and Jodie Turner-Smith Meet?

The Way Jodie Turner-Smith and Joshua Jackson First Met Is as Iconic as You'd Expect

From a well-timed DM slide to a chance meeting on set, we never get tired of hearing how some of our favourite celebrity couples met. During an appearance on Late Night With Seth Meyers on 4 May, Jodie Turner-Smith shared how she and husband Joshua Jackson met, and let's just say, it's icon behaviour. "When I first met my husband, we had a one-night stand. We're in a two-, three-year one-night stand now," the 34-year-old told the host, who then asked if she'd been a Dawson's Creek fan growing up. "Let's be real, who wasn't Team Pacey?" Jodie quipped with a grin.

If you're wondering how long she was able to keep her love of Dawson's Creek a secret, it was about a month. "I did not show my hand at 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 added, revealing she'd been wearing Tessa Thompson's shirt from Sorry to Bother You. "So he shouts across the room, 'DETROIT!' And I was like, 'Uhhhhhh.' And then he came over." Guess his opening line worked, as the couple have been married since 2019 and welcomed daughter Janie Jackson in May 2020. You can see Jodie recount the charming meet-cute in the video above.
