Welling, 42, and Rosenbaum, 46, are good friends and have gotten together a few times in recent years, but this was the first time in a while that either of them have been spotted with Kreuk, 36, who played both of their characters' love interests.

Following co-star Allison Mack's arrest for sex trafficking over her dealings with the controversial NXIVM group, Kreuk revealed that when she was 23, she attended what she thought was a "self-help/personal growth course" in the organization "that helped me handle my previous shyness."

He served 10 months behind bars. He then returned to acting, and has appeared in small films over the past few years.

In 2010, the year before Smallville ended, a sex tape starring Jones and then-girlfriend and former Playboy Playmate Karissa Shannon, one of Hugh Hefner's exes, was released. (She and twin Kristina Shannon later became famous for their appearances on the E! reality show The Girls Next Door.)
