In terms of young love, theirs seemed to last a decent amount of time. They were together for about a year and were seen on red carpets together. Neither has really revealed much about what went down to cause the end of their relationship.

Vanessa brough Josh along to Coachella, which fans will recall was basically her kingdom as she was known as an annual fixture at the event. Again, due to Josh's private nature, details on the relationship are a bit sparse.

Once they split, they still had to do a press tour together to promote the movie. It appeared to be an amicable break, but they did have to deal with an awkward moment where they were asked about their relationship, causing them to admit that it was actually already over.

Claudia Traisac and Josh are a total adorable it-couple. Their long-term relationship started in 2013, but he initially kept it private. It wasn't until 2015 that he really gave the public some details and even those were pretty minor.

The pair met on the set of Paradise Lost, so when Glamour asked Josh his opinion on dating co-stars, he honestly replied: "As far as I'm concerned, you're both actors, you understand each other's lifestyle, so it's a very natural thing to have happen."

"It never got confusing or blurred or weird or anything like that. Genuinely, for me, that was so much better than having had some romantic thing. I'll tell you why, because now she's a friend of mine and there's nothing that has tainted that friendship," he told Dax Shepard on his Armchair Expert podcast.

That being said, Jennifer did admit that we weren't all crazy and that chemistry did have some sort of merit. “We’re great together,” she told CNN in an interview. “We can really kiss.”
