Foster has recently become tight-lipped when it comes to his romantic life. ”I intend to keep my private life away from public scrutiny,” he said to the media. However, in the past, Foster has been in two well-known relationships. First was in 2007 with his Greek co-star Spencer Grammer.
Fans of the hit show would agree that the on-screen chemistry between them was just absolutely undeniable. Foster was 21 at the time while Grammer was 23.
Fans were particularly excited about their relationship as it all seemed like a fairy tale come true. However, the pair couldn’t quite hold it together for long as they split in 2008, smashing the hearts of Greek fans.
While Grammer went on to date and later marry James Hesketh in 2011, Foster in 2008, found love in the eyes of That ’70s Show star actress Laura Prepon, who is now known for Orange Is The New Black. Scott seems to like them a bit more mature than he is as Laura was older than him with a 5-year age difference.
Their relationship lasted for roughly five years before they split in 2013 for reasons unknown to the media. Like Scott, Laura also keeps it private when it comes to her personal life. Despite rising to stardom as a teenager, she has never been tabloid fodder. She once told Marie Claire; “I’m like, I’m not gonna spend my day updating my social media. I want to enjoy and live my life. I want to let people in, I want fans to know what I’m doing, but there’s also a lot I keep close to the vest.”
However, paparazzi managed to catch a glimpse of their outings while they were together.
Three years after her break up from Foster, People reported in October 2016 that she was engaged to Ben Foster. The news came as a shock to the media who was unaware of an existing relationship between them.
Like his long-term ex-girlfriend, Scott Foster has chosen to stay uber-private when it comes to his dating life. Maybe news of his engagement would shockingly pop up in the news as well.

Scott Michael Foster Interview
Scott Michael Foster Talks ‘Crazy Ex-Girlfriend’ Journey and Rebecca’s Decision
When Scott Michael Foster first debuted on the CW’s musical comedy “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend,” he was coming into an already established show as a new workplace for but also a romantic interest for Rachel Bloom’s Rebecca Bunch. A well-off WASP who was working for his father, Foster’s Nathaniel Plimpton (the third!) seemed cold, calculating, and more often than not more like a machine than a man. But true to “Crazy Ex” form, being enmeshed with the offbeat characters of West Covina changed him, and Nathaniel got to show off a more sensitive side, which will only continue now that Rebecca has decided to take a break from their relationship to work on herself.
“She did some pretty wacky stuff to try and repair his relationship with his father — going to the extreme of stalking his dad and jumping to conclusions about this woman he’s going to see,’” Foster says. “She’s like no one he’s ever dated before, and he knew she was doing it for the right reasons but was doing it in the wrong way.”
Still, Nathaniel forgave Rebecca because he saw the relationship “as being worth it,” per Foster, which he notes makes things even harder on him when she ultimately tells him she can’t be with him right now.
“He spirals a little bit, and then you start to see him take a stand and make a decision and then he realizes he’s not quite strong enough to make a decision yet. He does a little bit of back and forth,” Foster says of Nathaniel’s journey to figure out what he really wants and what he feels he deserves. “He starts realizing that he might have to just let go and find someone who is good for him on paper. Whether he loves them or not — somebody that will be a typical girlfriend that will satisfy the parents. He starts realizing he has to move on from Rebecca; she’s going through her thing, and he can’t get in the way of that, no matter how much that hurts him.”
But while the show plays with the tropes of a traditional romantic comedy, it sets out to be much more than just that one genre. Early episodes may have seen audiences split off into camps of “Team Josh” or “Team Greg” and later “Team Nathaniel,” but it has evolved beyond that.
“I think at the end of the day — at the end of the show, whenever that is — the thing that everyone’s going to be is ‘Team Rebecca.’ She needs to be her team in figuring out her illness and getting healthy. The ultimate ‘ship is Rebecca and herself,” Foster says. “And honestly, I want the same thing for him. We have a bit of a cliffhanger this season, and I don’t know what happens, but he’s grown so much and become such a better person than he was before he met Rebecca, I think by the time this is all wrapped up, as long as he’s happy and healed in his relationship with his parents and knows what he wants out of life, those are the questions you always want a character to answer.”
In true ensemble form, even with Rebecca now off on her own journey of self-discovery and self-care, the other characters are being showcased in individual stories tackling their own problems.
“Sometimes you get a character and it’s that same character for six seasons and you never change, but this character, in a season and a half, has grown a lot! And that’s what I like about the show — that anyone in Rebecca’s orbit ends up growing and changing and becoming someone new,” says Foster. “It surprised me that we did that so quickly, but what I think is great is that people play the hero and play the villain at multiple different times in their lives.”
For Foster, being able to play so many different facets of the character so early in his run has led to musical numbers like the R&B-style “Let’s Have Intercourse,” hip-hop inspired “I Go To The Zoo” and club-pop track “Hot Guys Have Problems Too.” The latter, which aired in the ninth episode of Season 3, peels back the notion that those who seemingly have it all on the outside don’t actually have anything more complex going on underneath to explore heartbreak for both Nathaniel and White Josh (David Hull), as well as a “quarter-life crisis” for Josh (Vincent Rodriguez III). These problems may not be as flashy or even long-term as some of the other issues explored on the show, but that lighter nature lent to the more comedic commentary.
“I think originally it was going to be about fit, seemingly attractive white men until Vinnie was added to the song,” Foster shares. “Obviously everyone has problems, no matter who you are, and it was fun to explore and fun to do the dance. We all got on diets to actually live up to the title!”
After originally auditioning with a Frank Sinatra song, Foster says that he is now “down” for anything the show throws at him — including a tango that he had to learn exclusively for the show and even a live episode, should the powers that be find a way to make that a reality.
“I’d done musical theater in high school and college, but I haven’t done them since, and it’s been like 12 years! So some of these dances are tough,” says Foster. “On days we’re not shooting, we still have to come in to rehearse the dances or record the songs. It’s a good challenge, but it’s definitely a challenge.”
“Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” airs on Fridays at 8 pm on the CW.

Scott Michael Foster News
Nathaniel stars (and Scott Michael Foster triumphs) in his very own Crazy Ex-Girlfriend rom-com
Very little about “I’m Almost Over You” looks or sounds like a typical Crazy Ex-Girlfriend episode. The camera moves differently. The score functions differently. The jokes have a different rhythm, the performances a very different quality. The protagonist isn’t the protagonist. Another Rebecca is nowhere to be found. It is, in short, nothing like Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, if you ignore the fact that it’s pretty much Crazy Ex-Girlfriend boiled down to its purest form. It is, to use one of those trusty Sports Analogies, a big, big swing. And my oh my, does that swing pay off.
Attempt to describe Crazy Ex-Girlfriend’s modus operandi over the last four seasons, and odds are you’ll end up with something like this: “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend uses the tropes of romantic comedy, musical theatre, and other genres both narrative and musical to explore the ways Rebecca Bunch and those in her orbit relate to the world, to those they love, and to themselves.” In short, real life isn’t a movie, but movies can sometimes help. They can hurt sometimes, too.
So we arrive at “I’m Almost Over You,” an hour-long deconstruction and parody of rom-coms that allows one of the show’s most dramatically transformed characters to reach a new, heartbreaking place of personal growth. To get there, he’s got to try on a genre in an immersive way. He’s got to go through some shit. And what he wants to learn and what he actually learns are two very different things.
The episode referenced in the above tweet from Aline Brosh McKenna is this one: “Josh’s Ex-Girlfriend Is Crazy,” sometimes referred to simply as “SwimChan.” It’s Rebecca’s sexy-scary-lady movie. Like this one, it adopts the language of another genre entirely, not for a song, but from start to finish; like this one, it arrives at the perfect ending for Crazy Ex-Girlfriend’s honest take on that genre. Rebecca’s horror story isn’t threatening Lourdes and standing near a pit, it’s waking up with Greg’s dad and walking to her shitty hostel through the streets alone. Nathaniel’s rom-com isn’t an underwhelming karaoke number, it’s looking into the fact of the woman he loves and realizing his two choices are stepped away and let her try to be happy, or keep pushing and take away the one thing you should always want for people you love. Honest horror. Honest romance. Deconstructions that are also excellent examples. Reminders that life isn’t fictional, told fictionally.
There’s another big thing these episodes have in common: They function as showcases for the remarkable talents on which they center. The first time around, it was Rachel Bloom and Vincent Rodriguez, finding a way to be funny while playing the nightmare with great sincerity (every single performance in that episode is excellent, but they’re at center stage). This time, it’s Scott Michael Foster and Esther Povitsky, the latter tasked with handling most of the parodying (with help from the Mountaintop crew, and Donna Lynne Champlin in particular). Povitsky is great, maybe the episode’s MVP in terms of percentage of punchlines landed, but this is Scott Michael Foster’s hour, and he absolutely nails it.
Think of what he’s asked to do here. The episode’s many, many rom-com references begin with a proper Big-ing, also known as getting 13 Going On 30-ed; there’s no bop on the head required, he’s doing this all on his own. That means his first task is to show us that Nathaniel is both living through and watching from outside the story. He knows there’s a script, he just doesn’t know what’s coming. He’s got a whole band of ill-defined characters, most at least somewhat aware of their deficiency (again, Donna Lynne Champlin’s terrified emptiness is something majestic to behold), a frumpy new look, a meaningless high-stakes task set by a maniacal boss (one of several nods to The Devil Wears Prada, which was of course adapted by McKenna), and a goal: Get Rebecca (here the undeserving ex, a rom-com standard) back, at all costs.
He’s got one other thing: A treasure trove of knowledge gleaned from watching only the first half of a bunch of rom-coms. That’s why Nathaniel doesn’t know he’s making a huge mistake in heading down the “let’s make our exes jealous with our fake relationship” path. This is some damn fine writing (credited to Michael Hitchcock, pulling double duty here by also standing in for Miranda Priestly). Anyone with a passing knowledge of rom-coms will know without being told (though he does eventually tell us) that Nathaniel didn’t finish the movies, because if he had, he’d know that the person with whom you have a fake relationship is almost always the actual endgame. And that’s (almost) exactly what happens. They plot. They makeover. They have a karaoke party. They work late hours and cover each other with blankets. Then Nathaniel sets out to make his big dramatic gesture and realizes what anyone who’s ever finished a rom-com knew would happen: He’s chasing the wrong girl.
But this isn’t How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days. It’s Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. So we don’t get the ending we expect, because real life isn’t a movie. Life is a gradual series of revelations that occur over a period of time. It’s not some carefully crafted story, it’s a mess and we’re all gonna die.
This hour belongs to Scott Michael Foster—he brings the sharp edge the script requires, all while basically creating an hour-long audition for the rom-coms in which he’ll inevitably be cast—but the twist is all Povitsky’s. She’s so funny throughout, but the frank, tender goodbye speech she gives—as Rebecca—is considerably weightier. And then director Erin Ehrlich cuts back to Maya, and Maya’s gone. It’s just Rebecca, not the underserving ex version, the real one. And in that moment, she tells him—which means that really, Nathaniel tells himself—that it’s time to let the person he loves be happy. It’s time to be a good person, an honestly good, loving person, and walk away.
The odds of “I’m Almost Over You” being the last we see of Nathaniel Plimpton III are basically zero, but if this were his end, it would be a perfect one. The guy who fired George for kicks now confides in him and casts him as his best friend in his own fantasies. The “Let’s Have Intercourse” guy sobs on a pizza delivery person’s shoulder, having used his own emotional intelligence to figure his shit out (“Tell me I’m okay, Pizza Guy…”). It’s a hell of an arc and a hell of a performance.
This episode won’t thrill everyone. No one is themselves, and so basically everyone but Nathaniel gets put on hold. But in handing this hour over to Hitchcock, Ehrlish, Povitsky, and Foster, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend creates something singular. What’s more, it does something that I really wish it wasn’t: It moves gently, but confidently, into the beginning of its end.
