You guys! It’s Michael C. Hall and Jennifer Carpenter! Or Dexter and Deb from Dexter! Or two beautiful lovers who were separated before their time by sickness (or Julia Stiles, whatever). Either way, the point is that these two were photographed together back on Wednesday, and, as you can see, things are looking a little intimate, aren’t they?
This glorious couple split up back in 2010, if you’ll remember, and the rumor was that Michael left Jennifer because he was cheating on her with his costar in that current season of Dexter, Julia Stiles. The rumor was denied, but everyone still had their suspicions, of course.
But then, just a few weeks ago, there was a new rumor. A magical, lovely, inspiring rumor. The word was that Michael and Jennifer might be back on, and that word was based on some sightings of the couple having dinner at a hotel, and then having coffee together the next morning, and I know I don’t need to spell that one out for you.
And now look! Those pictures! That look on Michael’s face! Either here’s in some serious love or he’s thinking about his cats. Either way, my heart is touched.
People has a breakdown of the date, and if you’re a romantic too, maybe stop reading right before the last paragraph:
The Dexter costars –who wed on New Years Eve in 2009 – and were divorced two years later – were spotted looking cozy during an evening out Wednesday in Venice Beach, Calif.
Hall, 41, clutched Carpenter’s arm as the pair grabbed coffee before heading to the beach to watch the sun set. Once there, the actor pulled his ex-wife in for an embrace.
“He is and always will be one of my best friends in the world. Just because the marriage ended doesn’t mean the love isn’t still there,” Carpenter, 32, told Today last October. “We take very good care of each other … we always have. I’m just really lucky.”
This isn’t the first time the former lovebirds have been spotted looking especially sweet post-split. At the PEOPLE/Entertainment Industry Foundation SAG Awards Bash last month, the seemingly upbeat pair was by each other’s side throughout the night while mingling with mutual pals.
But don’t get your hope up for a reconciliation – after another java fix was caught on camerain January, a source told PEOPLE, “Jennifer and Michael are friends. They spend time together. They work together. It was not romantic.”
Sorry, People, but consider my hopes “up.” There’s no convincing me that anything these kids do together isn’t because of their deep, undying love for each other.
Oh, and speaking of deep undying love for each other, I didn’t see any of that last season of Dexter, but I heard that Dex and Deb are in love now? Is that right? Can someone explain that to me?
