Jeremy Allen White and Addison Timlin's Journey From Teen Love to Marriage Makes Their Split Brutal

Jeremy Allen White's love story with his wife, Addison Timlin, has seemingly come to an end, as Timlin filed for divorce after three years of marriage on May 11.

While many may think the pair first connected in the late aughts when the two appeared in the 2008 film "Afterschool" together, they actually met long before that. The actors fell in love in 2005 during their freshman year while attending the same performing arts high school in New York City, but they didn't start dating at the time because . . . well, they were high-school freshmen, and life happens. They had a falling out, but then they got cast in "Afterschool," which brought them back together. Their journeys in, and out, and then back into each other's lives would ultimately serve as what they thought would be lifelong love and commitment.

While Timlin and White — whose highly acclaimed drama "The Bear"'s second season is set to premiere in June — mostly kept their swoon-worthy romance out of the limelight, they shared many glimpses of their ever-evolving relationship through social media that, looking back, make their split that much more devastating for fans of the couple.

From planning their modern wedding to sharing two adorable daughters together, relive key moments of their friends-to-lovers romance that preceded their split ahead.

2004: Jeremy Allen White and Addison Timlin Meet in High School

White and Timlin met when White transferred to Timlin's performing-arts high school in NYC in the middle of their freshman year, a moment Timlin described as "love at first sight" during their joint interview for a July 2019 episode of the "Showmance" podcast. "He has really blue eyes and his blue shirt brought out the blue eyes. And he had really long hair, and that was really cool," Timlin said. "He came in hot, so to speak, and [me and my classmates] were all so in love with him."

While the pair didn't date because Timlin had an off-and-on boyfriend at the time and, well, they were awkward 13-year-olds, they still became inseparable. "We spent all our time together. We cut school together. We got in trouble together, smoked pot together," Timlin said.

When Timlin decided to transfer schools when she was 15, the pair got into a fight fueled by teenage angst. "I had just transferred midway through the year, we connected, and then she was like, 'Bye! See ya later!' And was just like, 'But I just found you!'" White said of their falling out. "She did go to school like 20 blocks away," he added, acknowledging the whole thing might have been a tad dramatic.

As fate would have it, White and Timlin were brought back into one another's lives when they were both cast in the 2008 movie "Afterschool," alongside Ezra Miller. Both were 17 at the time.

"The universe never really let us separate," Timlin said of the serendipitous nature of their "Afterschool" audition during their "Showmance" interview.

"I was like, 'F*ck this chick,'" White said, recounting how he felt when he realized he'd have to do a chemistry read with his first love. "I was so mad at the director. I was like, 'You can't, man. You can't.'"

"I, like, aired our dirty laundry in the room," Timlin said. "And then the director was like, 'I love it!' Of course," White added. Timlin continued, "He was so mad at me, and I was like, 'Well I just got us the part, didn't I!'"

The pair ended up briefly moving in together when they were 18, around the time they starred in "Afterschool."
