“She’s professing her love to Heath and she’s in love with a guy waiting in his trailer to shoot the next scene.”
The movie’s director Gil Junger recently revealed that Julia and Joseph Gordon-Levitt actually dated while filming the ’90s teen comedy.
“She, for a minute or 10, went out with Joseph Gordon-Levitt,” Gil revealed in an interview with Mirá a Quién Encontré.
He added, “They were very, very attracted to each other, which was cool…Watching them, it was beautiful how much they enjoyed each other.”
“She’s professing her love to Heath and she’s in love with a guy waiting in his trailer to shoot the next scene,” Gil joked.
In fact, Gil says that Julia told him she was thinking of Joseph while filming the movie’s iconic poetry scene.
“She told me, ‘I was just thinking about’ that person’s name that she was deeply in love with at the time…That was one of the magical performances that I’ve recorded in my lifetime,” Gil shared.
Although Gil didn’t reveal exactly how long the pair dated, Julie went on to marry actor Preston Cook in 2017 and Joseph married scientist Tasha McCauley in 2014.
