Daniel Gillies was dating actress Rachael Leigh Cook since December 2001. After two years of dating, they got engaged. Eight months later on 14th August 2004, they tied the knot. Rachael Leigh Cook is one of the most beautiful and sexiest actresses in Hollywood.
Before her affair and marriage with Daniel Gillies, Rachael Leigh Cook was in a relationship with Canadian actor Ryan Reynolds for some time in early 2001 before she met her present husband.
The American tabloids had also linked her with American actor Gabriel Mann, Canadian actor Devon Sawa, actor-singer Jacob Young, actor-director Rider Strong, actor Shawn Hatosy, actor-visual artist Ryan Alosio, actor Vincent Kartheiser, actor-musician Shane West, actor Brandon Jack James, actor-model Antonio Sabato Jr., actor-filmmaker Colin Hanks, and actor-DJ Christopher Masterson.
She was supposedly also said to be romantically involved with American actor Ben Foster and Irish actor Jonathan Rhys Meyers.
