The former Friends regular and the Iron Man 2 star attended MCAteer High School in San Francisco, California together, where young thespian Rockwell was already attending acting classes to perfect his skills.

When Rockwell visited Tyler's U.S. chat show The Talk on Wednesday (20May15), she admitted he is the sole reason she caught the acting bug in the first place, saying, "The truth of the matter is, I had a little crush on Sam and I followed him into acting class."

Rockwell added, "And I had a crush on her, so we briefly dated."
