Joshua started dating the German actress Diane Kruger in 2006 but had a disastrous first date. She sat next to the flowers she was allergic to and began sneezing. Meanwhile, he talked a lot due to nervousness.
Diane was publicly spotted making out with Norman Reedus, her Sky (2015) co-star, in 2015. The following year, she broke up with Joshua and publicly discussed her wish for a baby.
Accordingly, Diane tried to have one with Joshua, which did not work. They lived together in New York, but she moved out after their breakup. Now, she is with Norman, and the couple welcomed their first child in 2017.
Brittany Daniel played Eve Whitman in Dawson’s Creek Season 3, and people hated her character. She appeared at the Radio Music Awards with Joshua in October 1999, and rumors regarding their relationship surfaced. None knows the reason for their break up, but people think their youth must have influenced their decisions.
Joshua began dating Rosario Dawson in 2002 and made some public appearances during that period, according to US Weekly. The media caught them together on the streets of New York in May 2018, though they separated in 2003.
After their break up in 2003, Joshua took a break from acting, and Rosario began dating Jason Lewis, her ‘Sex and the City’ co-star. However, Rosario and Joshua reportedly remained friends after breaking up. Their relationship was a secret, but the breakup was not.
Alyssa Julya Smith
Joshua was spotted with Alyssa Julya Smith at New York City’s Central Park in June 2018, a few months after they started dating. They broke up in October 2018 because their long-distance relationship did not work.
After working as an anchor till 2020, Alyssa began acting on television, while Joshua had already moved on with Jodie, which turned out to be a high-profile relationship.
People linked Joshua with Jodie Turner-Smith after they were first spotted holding hands in Los Angeles in November 2018. They made their red carpet debut the following year, and their wedding rumors surfaced in August 2019.
A source confirmed their marriage to PEOPLE in December 2019, and Jodie appeared before the media with her baby bump the following year in January. Their daughter, Juno Rose Diana, was born in April 2020.
According to Jodie’s statement to NET-A-PORTER in September 2020, she was madly in love with her talented, hot, and smart husband but somehow stopped herself from shouting crazily. They supported each other with their careers but filed for divorce in October 2023, and Joshua moved on with Lupita Nyong’o.
Lupita Nyong’o, 40, and Joshua, 45, were in a short-lived and ‘very normal’ relationship that lasted only a few weeks.
People caught them enjoying Janelle Monáe’s concert with their friends in October when they were out of their individual long-term relationships. Thus, they must be trauma-bonded.
