Freddie Prinze, Jr. says he knew Sarah Michelle Gellar was “legit” when “she ate everything” on their first date.
The couple, who recently celebrated their 14th wedding anniversary, appeared on Gellar’s Facebook Live broadcast on Wednesday in support of the “She’s All That” actor’s new cookbook, “Back to the Kitchen”. While Prinze, Jr. admitted he wasn’t much of a Facebook user, the actor melted hearts when he described his first date with the “Buffy The Vampire Slayer” star.
He recalled, “A lot of girls back then in Hollywood – as far as the actresses – they didn’t eat, they ate salad. And I had gone on a date with a handful of them; they would never eat what I would eat. You have to have that in common with me if we’re going to get along.”
He continued, “And so Sarah came to dinner with me, and we sat down and she ate everything, including a crab that they let walk across the counter, then kill while it was alive in some oil and said, ‘It’s popcorn, try.’ And she ate it without even blinking, and I was like, ‘Yo, my girl is legit!”
