Kyra Sedgwick recalls falling for Kevin

In a new interview with PEOPLE, Kyra Sedgwick revealed she was "terrified" over falling in love with the young actor. At the time, she was used to relying only on herself, which made everything simple:

I mean, I’d been working professionally since I was 16. And I was living on my own, making my own money. I was like, ‘I’m fiercely independent.'

But when Kyra realized Kevin was taking over her heart she got scared as it turned her life upside down and she wasn't alone anymore:

So when I did fall in love with Kevin, it really just felt like there was some urgency to get married, and I don’t know what it was. Suddenly this thing came over me and I was terrified.

Sedgwick also added she had trust issues and didn't want to get hurt. Plus, when you're independent it gets quite addictive, so much so that you're afraid of letting your guard down, which is exactly what happened to the famous actress.

Because I couldn’t count on people. I just didn’t. That wasn’t where I felt like I would be successful. A lot of people had let me down and so I was not interested in being vulnerable or connected in a really serious way.

What make Sedgwick settle down?

Luckily, Kyra was able to get over her inner conflict and realized she couldn't pass up on being with Kevin. She said there was no denying that they belonged together:

He was just the one, you know? He was just the soul mate, he was just the one.

We're beyond happy things worked out between these two as they're still going strong.
