Just like Lorelai, Lauren Graham met her knight in shining armor. In 1995, 28-year-old Lauren Graham moved to LA, hoping to become an actress.

She began her climb up the career ladder by starring in commercials and playing episodic roles in movies. And Lauren didn't worry about romance until the realization set in that she was alone and her friends had all gotten married and started families.

Lauren had a few relationships over time, but nothing serious until she worked on "Parenthood" in 2009. Reconnecting with Peter Krause, whom she knew since the late '90s, had a more permanent effect the second time around.
