Sorry, Alan Grant And Ellie Sattler Were NOT A Couple In Jurassic Park
You all know the story: Paleontologist Dr. Alan Grant (Sam Neill) and paleobotanist Dr. Ellie Sattler (Laura Dern) are sent by wealthy idiot John Hammond to visit Jurassic Park in Spielberg's film. Once things go south, Grant and Sattler both manage to escape with their lives. Hooray! You probably think they're a couple, right? The whole thing is super sweet? WRONG.
