It took a while for J.R. to woo his current girlfriend, Diana Gonzalez-Jones, on the set of ALL MY CHILDREN.
He tells ACCESS HOLLYWOOD, “We were friends, and, you know, it was a workplace, so you don’t want to cross the line. I was respectful of that, and for about two years we were great friends. Finally, something happened, something clicked, and I just said, ‘[Do] you ever look at me differently than just a friend?’” he continued, with a shy smile. “And she kind of paid attention to it, and here we are! It’s great.”

At least they tried... and are still trying. It's got to be a HUGE learning curve and of course they are going to want to put their own stamp on it."
CORONATION STREET's Sue Nicholls: "A Corrie fan saved my life after they spotted a dark mole on my arm"

Yet today Sue acknowledges that the viewer may just have saved her life. The blemish turned out to be the first stages of melanoma.
