Emmy Rossum and Counting Crows frontman Adam Duritz’s love began with a Tweet.
According to the 23-year-old actress, their relationship was ignited with a dare sent to her via the micro-blogging Web Site.
“I was on tour with the band this summer. They invited me actually on Twitter,” Emmy said Thursday on the syndicated radio show “Valentine in the Morning.” “That’s how we met – on a dare. They dared me to come sing with them a song that I’d never sung before … So I ended up on tour with the band, and it was very, very fun.”
Emmy and Adam, 45, went public with their relationship following her split from husband Justin Siegel in August – a marriage she kept under wraps.
“It’s hard to have a private life and keep it private and hope that people don’t pick you apart,” she said when asked why she kept her marriage a secret.
As for her divorce from Jason – she explained that she only wants one thing.
“I’m not asking for anything except freedom,” Emmy said during the interview. “So, that I can move on to another chapter in my life, and find happiness.”
