    What they worked on together: Parenthood and Caroline in the City

    The two first met way back in 1995 on the set of Caroline in the City, but they didn't start dating until starring on Parenthood together. Lauren told Good Housekeeping that she had a rule about not dating any actor-types and tried to keep her relationship with Peter in the friend zone. She later admitted that their friendship evolved into a relationship. She said, "It was like, You like me, and I like you. It gave me an understanding of life: This is how things happen, and it's completely random."

    What they worked on together: Orange Is the New Black

    Samira and Lauren met on set of Orange Is the New Black and in an interview with Bust Magazine, Samira shared that she actually fell in love with Lauren's mind before she even met her in person. She said, “I was really attracted to Lauren’s mind first before I met Lauren the person. I got her script and I was like: ‘This person’s really talented, I can’t wait to meet this person.'” At the time, Lauren was still married to a man and had only just discovered that she was a lesbian, so she and Samira started off their relationship as friends before blossoming into something more. They got married in 2017, and Lauren just gave birth to their first baby in April 2021.
