Fun, But Didn’t Mean to Last: Young Romance with Ashlee Simpson

Ashlee Simpson was a megastar back in the 2000s. Her breakthrough happened after she frequently appeared on MTV reality series of her sister’s married life, Jessica Simpson’s Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica. The show quickly became a pop culture phenomenon, resulted in sudden attention to the sisters.

Ashlee then received her series, a spin-off from her sister’s, The Ashlee Simpson Show. However, unlike the plot of her sister’s show, The Ashlee Simpson Show told the behind the scene stories on the recording and preparation of Ashlee’s debut album. 

Gregory himself was also a teenage heartthrob back in the 2000s. His role as Greg in Zenon: Girl of the 21st Century, Kate Brasher, Everwood, and American Outlaws, and Harriet, the Spy earned him so much love and attention from the 2000s adolescents. 

As some stated that we tend to be attracted to people who are similar to us, we can see it coming when the two teenage stars in the 2000s dated, although briefly. The pair started dating in November 2003 but broke up only three months later, in February 2004.

Ah, young love…

Sadly there isn’t much information about these teenagers being love back then. Both Ashlee and Gregory were just kids who tried to have fun with each other and make their way up to the top of their careers. However, it makes us pretty sad because we expect more of their pictures together, right?!

We can see some of their pictures on the internet, but it’s not quite enough. The two seemed perfect together: a beautiful teenager being in love with each other.

Most of their pictures were mainly taken when they attended an event together. With her beautiful blonde hair and her casual but-classy attire, we can see Ashlee, paired with Gregory, who wore black most of the time. If there isn’t much information we can get from them, we can still enjoy the view.

Both Ashley and Gregory are growing up now, and they looked even hotter than their teenage self. Ashley is currently single after getting a divorce from Pete Wentz, the Fall Out Boy bassist.

Gregory Smith is only linked with two women throughout his life, and one of them was when he was a kid AND only lasted for a short time. Does this mean that he takes his love life seriously and doesn’t like to date and playing around with many girls? It seems like it.

Unlike many celebrities in the industry, he is different because he doesn’t use his charm and wittiness to play around and not be serious in relationships.

A Lifelong Acting: Gregory’s Long-Lasting Career

Since the age of 14 months old, Gregory had appeared in television commercials and store catalogs. His first in-film acting credit was a role in the 1994 children’s film Andre. He continued his career in the 1995 Leaping Leprechauns as Mikey Dennehy. He reprised his role on its sequel, Spellbreaker: Secret of the Leprechauns.

His breakthrough, however, was when he was cast for the film Harriet the Spy as Sport, the film’s main character’s side-kick. After that, he gained further acknowledgment through his role as Greg in the movie Zenon: Girl of the 21st Century.

His talent then landed him a role as Mel Gibson’s son on the star-studded historical fiction war film, The Patriot.

The movie itself was full of up-and-coming actors, to name some Heath Ledger, later known for his roles Ennis Del Mar in Brokeback Mountain and The Joker in The Dark Knight, Logan Lerman, later known for his role as Percy Jackson in the Percy Jackson & the Olympians series and Charlie Kelmeckis in The Perks of Being a Wallflower.

Gregory is also known for his several roles on several TV series, for example, his role as the leading character Daniel Brasher on CBS drama series Kate Brasher, his role as Ephram Brown on Warner Bros’ series Everwood, also ABC’s police drama TV series Rookie Blue.

His acting in Rookie Blue earned him the Golden Maple Award for Newcomer of the Year in A TV Series Broadcasted in the U.S. back in 2016.

Other than acting, Gregory is also famous for his directing ability, proving it numerous times! He has been involved and credited as the director for several episodes on well-known and popular series, such as Rookie Blue, Arrow, Legends of Tomorrow, Riverdale, Supergirl, The Flash, and one of The CW’s new series, Superman & Lois.
