Jeremy Allen White recently sat down with GQ to discuss his life and career. He revealed that he met his wife in high school when they were 14. He said, “I was instantly very much into her and she, me too, I think. But she had a boyfriend. I was just so clumsy about all that stuff.” White further shared that he felt broken up when Addison Timlin moved to a different school.

The pair reunited when they were 17 while filming Afterschool alongside Michael Stuhlbarg and Ezra Miller. After shooting the movie, White and his wife remained friends for years before they began dating. It’s unclear when the two started dating, but Timlin may have hinted at the relationship in 2013 in a Harper’s Bazaar interview.

When asked if she was in a relationship, the star said, “I’ve got a sweetheart who I will not disclose. We have a nice foundation from being friends for a long period of time, and then it took a hard turn right into romance.”

A few years after the comment, she posted a photo of White welcoming him to Instagram. In the picture, White was looking at her, and she at the camera. Timlin captioned the image, “Welcome to Instagram to my ride or die guy,” and tagged him.
