Jeffrey Dean Morgan admitted that he’s never seen even one episode of his wife Hilarie Burton’s famous show One Tree Hill! While at The Walking Dead’s season nine premiere, the actor talked to ET and hilariously revealed that while he loves his life partner very much, he has no opinion about the TV show that made her famous simply because he’s never watched it!
‘I’ve never seen the show. I know, I’m old!’ he laughed before adding: ‘I hear [she was amazing]. We have a lot of mutual fans. They always tell me how great she was, but you have to understand that I am a little bit older than she is. So I think that when One Tree Hill was cool with everyone, I was probably 40, you know? So, I kind of missed it!’
Close enough! When the show premiered back in 2003, the actress was only 21 while Morgan was 37.
One Tree Hill came to an end in 2012 but since then, fans have been begging for a cast reunion.
That being said, it looks like they’re going to get it after all!
Earlier this week, Lifetime announced Burton and former One Tree Hill cast mates Antwon Tanner, Robert Buckley, and Danneel Ackles are set to star together in a holiday movie titled The Christmas Contract!
This is also the actress’ very first project since giving birth to her and Morgan’s second baby together, a daughter named George, who is now 7 months old.
Talking about his beloved wife, Morgan went on to gush that ‘[Family life is] really good. She is amazing. She’s at home now with our two kids, and we have a 7-month-old, George, who’s in the midst of teething. I just talked to Hilarie on my way here, and I know she is having a hard time on her own, and she is ready for me to get home.’
