During an interview with Access, the This Is Us star, 34, opened up about her relationship with the royal after being shown a group shot from the set of Moore’s 2007 rom-com License to Wed, which Markle’s ex-husband, Trevor Engelson, co-produced. (Small world.)
“Her ex-husband was a producer on a movie that I worked on, so I met her back in 2006 and spent a lot of time with them, a lot of time with her,”Moore said. “And she is a lovely, generous woman.”
“We spent a lot of time in Jamaica where some of the movie was shot,” Moore said, recalling the budding friendship. “We spent quite a bit of time—I think we spent New Year’s with them that year. We spent some time over the summer in the Hamptons with them.” (OK, we’re officially jealous.)
“It was another lifetime ago for both of us, but she’s wonderful,” she said.
