And, when Gomez finally agreed to meet up with the guy at a bar in London, she had no idea, it would be fellow actor, Jack Arthur Davenport, with whom she would later spend the rest of her life.
But, the beginning of their love story was nothing like one would imagine as Gomez was not even sure if she liked Davenport at all. As a matter of fact, the Green Wing star thought Davenport was too young for him. Speaking of which, the Pirates of the Caribbean actor is six years younger than Gomez.
That's not it at all. Gomez even thought Davenport was posh for him. And while Gomez wanted to get rid of Davenport and never see him again, Davenport, on the other hand, was instantly starstruck by the actress.
And, as Jack didn't give up and took a leap of faith and approached Michelle, the man had good luck. Gomez later realized and saw the good in Davenport. Likewise, history speaks itself about Davenport and Gomez's relationship.
Today, Gomez and her boyfriend turned husband have been married for almost 20 years, but together for 23 years. But, hey, who was the mutual friend, Gomez and Davenport owe it all to? He is the great star of The Walking Dead, Andrew Lincoln.
