“I sent her a DM,” she continued. “I thought maybe we would just be friends. I said, ‘You’re very beautiful. I love your look,’ and, like, 10 days later she wrote me back with a little video.” The former couple made their first red carpet debut in July at the Stand Up for Friendly House comedy benefit at the Fonda Theatre, L.A.
