Star of ABC’s Happy Endings, Eliza Coupe, says the only reason she agreed to date her husband, puppeteer and acting coach Randall Whittinghill, was because of his uncanny resemblance to Pirates of the Caribbean star Johnny Depp.
Coupe told New York magazine's Vulture that she “was obsessed” with Depp during “the Growing Pains/What’s Eating Gilbert Grape era, because he was super hot,” admitting that she put a laminated photo of the actor in her wallet so people would think he was her boyfriend. “But no one believed me,” Coupe said. “They just thought I was a f-cking weirdo.”
The actress also admitted to the mag that she still has a crush on the mysteriously sexy actor, revealing, “I literally only started dating my husband because he looked like Johnny Depp.”
According to Us Weekly Coupe and Whittinghill have been happily married for twelve years and the 31-year-old actress still believes her hubby resembles Depp.
Aside from her happy marriage, the star appeared on Conan in March, where she dished about her starring role on the hit show, as well as a very interesting, recurring encounter with a homeless west coast masturbator.
You can catch Coupe on Happy Endings, which airs Tuesdays at 9/8c on ABC.
