Sam told Harper’s Bazaar that their relationship started as soon as the movie wrapped.
She said: “And as soon as we finished, he told me he was going to marry me. We had never been on a date, or even kissed,”
Aaron said: “And a year to the minute after we met, exactly one year to the minute, I got down on one knee and asked her to marry me,”
“In the 10 years we’ve been together, we’ve only been apart for maybe two or three days. And those were the worst days of those 10 years,”

And Sam has hit back at the negative comments about their age difference.
She said: “If I gave a second thought to other people, I would be the unhappiest person, probably still in a miserable marriage,
