“My manager was submitting different clients and asked me if I knew who Tom was, and she goes, ‘Side note, he’s single,'” Kaley said, adding that she wasn’t ready to get back into the dating scene after having ended a relationship – she proceeded to forget about the entire interaction. 

“So the months had gone on and we’d never met, and I was promoting Flight Attendant with that same manager, who is his manager. [She asked,] ‘I’m going to the Ozark premiere. Do you want to come with me?'” Kaley explained. “So I got all dressed up and I was standing there. I was at the bathroom and I was waiting and I hear this voice — it was Tom — and he’s like ‘Where’s this Kaley?’ … It was like love at first sight.”

I like being someone’s partner and having that companionship,” she said, before adding, “We’ve all been there where you think, ‘Oh, my God, I’m never going to meet someone else.’ And you do. There are great people that come into your life and they leave your life. And there are reasons for all of it.”
