Shepard took off his shirt and let Hudson carry it as they held hands while walking out.
While we were there, we said, Wouldnt it be funny if we came out holding hands and I was your new boyfriend? Shepard remembered. We were just pals ... And then we added, Wouldnt it be great if her new boyfriend didnt wear a shirt at Nobu?

She added thatshe felt super compatible with The Ranch actor and they laughed [their] asses off together but ultimately theircourtship ended because they were in different places in our life.
I felt very less than around you quite often, Shepard admitted. I think I was just in the point where I was not gonna get hired for movies anymore I had a bunch that didnt work and Im like, I dont f---ing know whats next and you were at that time making the most you ever made and having the most opportunity ...Im following this person around as they do things I wish I were doing. It was a rough period anyways and then I felt all kinds of inadequacy in that position.
Hudson owned up to her part in the breakup as well.
Honestly, I wasnt giving Dax what he needed and I was making choices that were not relationship-focused, the Almost Famous star said. I was not ready for what Dax It was so much fun, it got hot fast and I wasnt prepared.
