Michelle Trachtenberg on Meeting Shawn

Whos your boyfriend?
Shawn Ashmore [X2]. Hes an actor. I had to think about that. I was up at 7 this morning, I dont know.

How did you meet an X-Man?
Well, I put out an ad in the classifieds: "Wanted, Superhero. Im a damsel in distress." No, we just met, which is funny, knowing Shawn, he hates anything publicity. He's so not into that world. We met at an Oscar party and he was just like Mr. Grumpy, unhappy to be out in public and I totally approached him. I was the forward one. I take full credit and actually, weve been together a year.
