This all occurred shortly earlier than Arnold received along with one other co-star, Roseanne Barr.

“We went to the Improv, we have been simply hammered. The following morning [Barr] calls me into her workplace and he or she goes, ‘Tom, I used to be a author too. Writers can not date the actors. That is the rule of Hollywood,'” Arnold shared. “I used to be like, ‘Oh, OK…I apologize. That is the rule of Hollywood I might not violate it.’ After which I could not date Laurie Metcalf. And little did I do know Roseanne would ultimately make me marry her…I may by no means inform how girls like me however apparently in the event that they’re actually, actually imply to me…I appreciated that.”
So was Arnold romantically keen on Metcalf?
“Nicely, no, we had an evening…it is like I am certain we have been out partying, we did a pilot for a TV present, that is thrilling…properly no matter…there was one thing that night time, 100 p.c,” Arnold revealed. “In fact I do not know what. Nicely they kissed and made out…properly, no matter they need…properly they have been backing down in a automobile, I do not know.”
Arnold went on to tie the knot with Barr in 1990, however the couple divorced in 1994.
