Comedian and actor Jason Mantzoukas has largely kept his personal life away from the spotlight. The secretive actor may not have a girlfriend at the moment, or it may be that he is unwilling to divulge that information. But we still know about at least one of his former romantic relationships. 

He Was The Best Thing That Happened To His Ex-Girlfriend

Mantzoukas was previously dating actress Connie Britton, best known for her roles in Friday Night Lights and Spin City.

In 2009, when Britton had recently turned 40 years old, she was interviewed by Red Book Mag. In the interview, she was asked to pick one of the best things that had happened to her since she turned 40. She said that Mantzoukas was the best thing to happen to her.

She didn’t take his name and instead referred to him as a "comedy writer." However, she stayed mum and revealed no more during that media interaction.  

Fans were bewildered upon learning this information. Some even took to Twitter

Moreover, although it is not confirmed, the couple supposedly called it quits within two months of being together in 2009.
