Rumors soon began circulating that the two were coupling up off screen as well. There was just one problem: Hall was married to Jennifer Carpenter, who played his sister on the show. The two soon announced they were divorcing, and Stiles denied she had anything to do with the demise of the marriage.
“I have absolutely nothing to do with the split between Michael and Jennifer. We are good friends and enjoyed working together,” she told Us Weekly in a statement. “This is a personal matter between them, and we should respect their privacy. Although I too prefer to keep my private life private, I felt compelled to dispel the rumors I was somehow the cause for this matter.”
