In a recent episode of the 4D With Demi Lovato podcast, Schitt’s Creek star Emily Hampshire revealed that Demi once slid into her DM’s to ask her out!
The actress who played Stevie recalled, “You slid in my DMs and you said, ‘Hey, I like you on the show. We should kick it sometime,’ and then you said, below it, ‘And by kick it, I mean go on a date. I find you attractive.’ You made it clear it was a date.”
“I loved that because I was like, ‘Sometimes that’s confusing!’ I’m decades older than you, so ‘kick it,’ I was looking it up,” she added.
Although Hampshire was flattered, she sighted their 11 year age difference as a hinderance. Hampshire is 40, and Lovato is 29.
In response, Demi countered by using Sarah Paulson and Holland Taylor as an example of a couple with an age difference that make it work.
“You also said, ‘Think of Sarah Paulson and Holland Taylor,'” Emily added. “And then right after, you were like, ‘I don’t mean you’re the Holland Taylor!’ I thought it was the funniest thing in the whole world because I was a Holland Taylor in that situation. Proud to be.”
