James Marsden and Lizzy Caplan recently sat down for a joint interview with Vanity Fair where they addressed rumors about their past romantic involvement. The actors, who became close friends while working together on the film “Bachelorette” in 2012, took the opportunity to humorously discuss the speculation surrounding their relationship.
During the interview, James, 49, jokingly suggested that the dating rumors might have stemmed from the fact that they spent a lot of time together. With a playful tone, he jokingly commented, “We were always together, which is probably why the rumors started.” We liked to get the gossip going.” Lizzy, 40, joined in the banter, jokingly expressing her amusement with the attention.
The conversation took a lighthearted turn as James recalled a time when they used to smoke, despite the fact that he had not been a smoker before. Lizzy responded in a comical manner, saying, “I know, I had a knack for bringing that out in people when I was younger. It’s quite terrible.” The two actors shared a light-hearted exchange, recalling their past antics and the impact they had on each other.
In 2014, when James and Lizzy were spotted together, rumors about their romantic involvement circulated. However, Lizzy promptly put an end to the speculation during Showtime’s Emmy Eve Soiree. She clarified that James was simply one of her best friends and emphasized the closeness of their friendship. Lizzy even playfully added that even if they were in a relationship, she wouldn’t disclose it, saying, “I wouldn’t tell you anyway!”
Lizzy has been happily married to English actor Tom Riley since 2017. They became parents to their son, Alfie, in the year 2021. Their strong bond and growing family demonstrate Lizzy’s commitment to her personal life.
On the other hand, James was previously married to actress Lisa Linde, with whom he shares two children. Unfortunately, their marriage ended in 2011 after 11 years together. Despite the challenges of their divorce, James has focused on co-parenting and maintaining a healthy relationship with his children.
The Vanity Fair interview provided an opportunity for James and Lizzy to address the dating rumors with humor and candor. Both actors have moved on in their personal lives, finding happiness in their respective relationships and continuing to pursue successful careers in the entertainment industry. Their close friendship remains a testament to the genuine connections that can form between colleagues in the film industry.
