Supernatural star Jared Padalecki and his girlfriend, actress Sandy McCoy, are maintaining a long-distance relationship – as his CW show is shot in Vancouver and she still lives in Los Angeles. Jared, 24, admits to OK! that it was ‘tough’ for them to be apart at first, ‘but two years into it now, it’s easy. She’ll come up and visit on set and she knows all the crew and everybody loves her. When I’m down in L.A., I’ll spend some time with her. It’s basically a lot of time spent in airports and a lot of long distance phone bills.’The hunky actor, who has also appeared on Gilmore Girls and in the film House of Wax, says of Sandy, a former L.A. Lakers cheerleader, ‘I met her doing a movie called Cry Wolf three years ago.’They keep their love alive by vacationing together. Jared says they planned a trip during his break from the show. ‘We’re going to this place called Harrison Hot Springs in Canada which is apparently a romantic, snowy getaway,’ he smiles.
