Freddie Prinze Jr. and Sarah Michelle Geller Refuse to Work Together Again — Here’s Why

Freddie Prinze Jr. and Sarah Michelle Gellar are one of the most beloved couples in Hollywood history.

They both rose to fame in the nineties and starred in a string of cult-classic films as well as ever-popular television shows. Through it all, they leaned on each other for inspiration and support, and today, they remain as close as ever.

Still, Sarah Michelle Gellar recently revealed one thing that fans definitely won’t be able to look forward to from the power couple. Read on to learn about their sweet relationship and why they will probably never appear onscreen together again.

When did Freddie Prinze Jr. and Sarah Michelle Gellar start dating?

It all started in 1997, when Freddie Prinze Jr. and Sarah Michelle Gellar met on the set of their movie I Know What You Did Last Summer. Gellar and Prinze Jr. were two of the hottest stars of the decade and when it was revealed that they were dating, fans went crazy for their romance.

In early 2001, Prinze Jr. and Gellar got engaged and went on to tie the knot in September 2002. Prinze Jr. opened up about the early years of their relationship, stating that everything went smoothly from the start because they were both at a point in their lives where they wanted something serious. 

Even more miraculously, Prinze Jr. and Gellar have stayed out of the tabloid headlines. The photogenic pair keeps the focus on each other and their relationship, and even after two decades together, the two are still crazy about each other. 

How many children do Freddie Prinze Jr. and Sarah Michelle Gellar have?

After nearly seven years of marriage, Prinze Jr. and Gellar decided to expand their family circle. They welcomed their daughter, Charlotte Grace, in 2009 and a son named Rocky in 2012. Just like any other couple, having kids changed the way that Gellar and Prinze Jr. looked at life and their marriage.

In a 2017 interview, Gellar talked about how she “reevaluated her life” after they had children, deciding to remove the focus on technology and cell phones and to keep everything centered around real moments with each other as a family.

Gellar also acknowledged that she and Prinze Jr. prefer to keep their relationship private, stating that it’s “probably why we manage to survive.” Still, they do share sweet snapshots to social media on occasion, allowing fans an intimate look at one of Hollywood’s nicest and longest-lasting couples. 

Will Sarah Michelle Gellar and Freddie Prinze Jr. ever work together again?

Sarah Michelle Gellar and Freddie Prinze Jr. have worked together onscreen a handful of times, including, of course, in the film where they first met, I Know What You Did Last Summer. They also famously starred as Fred and Daphne in the live-action Scooby-Doo movie in 2002.

They have worked on a couple of animated projects, including the Star Wars Rebels television series. However, those days might be over for Gellar and Prinze Jr.

In a recent interview, Gellar was asked if she and Prinze Jr. are likely to share the screen in any future film projects. Gellar quickly responded that she doubts it will happen, because then no one would be able to stay home with the children.

The reporter suggested that their kids could possibly get involved as well, to which Gellar playfully mouthed the word, “no.”

Even if fans can’t expect to see both Gellar and Prinze Jr. onscreen together anytime soon, they can rest assured that their favorite celebrity couple is doing what is best for their family and keeping the focus on each other.
