How Jodie Turner-Smith Proposed To Joshua Jackson

Jodie Turner-Smith and Joshua Jackson are one of the top power couples in Hollywood. The pair's union began in 2018, Insider wrote in a July 2021 interview with Jackson. The two met at a party that year and "hit it off" when they first met, Jackson said. This resulted in "a three-night stand," which has evolved into a years-long relationship. "It was sealed with a kiss that night and then we didn't leave each other's sides for, well, three years now," Jackson recalled.

Turner-Smith later revealed that she first developed feelings for Jackson when she was a young teenager and watched him in one of his famous on-screen roles. "My first cinematic crush was Pacey from 'Dawson's Creek,'" Turner-Smith said to W Magazine in September 2020. In a December 2021 "Tonight Show" interview, host Jimmy Fallon displayed Turner-Smith's love for Jackson when he showed photos of her wearing a shirt adorned with her husband's "Dawson's Creek" character, as well as his jersey from another project he starred in, "The Mighty Ducks."
