It was on the I Know What You Did Last Summer set, though, that Gellar first encountered Freddie Prinze Jr. And although the pair didn’t become an item until 2000, their romance would eventually lead them to the altar, with the couple wedding in Mexico in 2002. Rather adorably, Prinze and Gellar have since appeared on screen together as love interests – for example, while playing Fred and Daphne, respectively, in the live-action adaptation of Scooby-Doo.
Then, after tying the knot, Gellar and Prinze became parents to daughter Charlotte and son Rocky. Perhaps as a consequence, Gellar’s acting career slowed down a little in the late ’00s and early ’10s. And while a mooted Cruel Intentions sequel TV series would have seen her notably return to the small screen, ultimately the show never got past the pilot stage in 2016.
At least Gellar has a husband willing to sing her praises, which Prinze did in a 2017 interview with E! News. The actor also gave his own take on why his relationship had been a success, saying, “We were just friends for a good two years before we ever went on a date.”
