Originally posted 10/24/2011 05:00PM

Ginnifer Goodwin and Jennifer Morrison are no strangers to television, having made names for themselves starring in HBO's Big Love and Fox's House, respectively. They've now paired up for ABC's new fantasy adventure series Once Upon a Time, a modern-day take on Snow White, which premiered Sunday.

Set in the strange fairy tale town of Storybrooke, Maine, the show features Morrison as Emma Swan, who may be the long lost daughter of Snow White, played by Goodwin.

Turns out the actresses have more in common than starring roles on a buzzed-about new show … Here are some fun facts (and surprising similarities) about the two stars.

Ginnifer Goodwin Reacts to Uproar over Her Weight Watchers History

Ginnifer Goodwin has never tried to keep secret the method behind her svelte figure – but when the Big Love star revealed publicly last month that she's been on Weight Watchers for much of her life, she was taken aback by the uproar.

In fact, the actress, 32 – who doesn't attend Weight Watchers meetings, but is a member of the group online – maintains that she's never been on an actual diet.

"I was so shocked when it was this whole, 'Ginny's been on a diet since she was 9 years old!' I was like 'No!' I've never had body issues, I've never had an eating disorder," she tells PEOPLE. "I've never had to go on a diet and that's because of Weight Watchers."

Ginnifer Goodwin has found a way to keep her name in the tabloids. "I perpetuate rumors that I've dated people that I've never actually dated," she tells the June issue of W magazine. "Dorothy Parker once said something along the lines of 'I don't care what's written about me so long as it isn't true.' It's safe making."

One person she's definitely not dating: actor Chris Klein. The couple dated for two years, but amicably split last December. Goodwin, who tells the magazine she is dating, likes having a special someone in her life.

"I'm a better person in a relationship, and I'm a happier person," she tells the magazine. "I need to come home at the end of the day and have it not be about me and my freaking hair and makeup. And I think my work is more inspired when home is safe and sound and solid because what I do for a living is so bananas and so insecure."

Battle of the Jennifers?

Rumors are swirling that Jennifer Aniston and Jennifer Connelly clashed on the set of their new movie, He's Just Not That Into You. In fact, one report even claimed that the former Friends star refused to share a Marie Claire cover with the Oscar winner.

"It's so absurd," costar Ginnifer Goodwin tells PEOPLE.

In fact, Goodwin – who was in L.A. Tuesday to be honored as the Max Mara Face of the Future award at the Women in Film Crystal+Lucy Awards – described the cast as an "extremely supportive, collaborative group of gals." (The movie also stars Drew Barrymore and Scarlett Johansson.)

Kissing Justin Long? Let's say she's just not that into it.

Actress Ginnifer Goodwin is a pro at acting out awkward situations – after all, she plays a polygamist's wife on HBO's Big Love. But one recent sex scene for He's Just Not That Into You pushed her over the edge.

"[Costar] Justin Long and I have been friends for going on eight years," she told PEOPLE at Wednesday's Women in Film luncheon, where she was honored as the MaxMara Face of the Future Award. "And when it came time for us to be intimate in the film, I think our bodies both rebelled."

The allegations of abuse at the recently-raided polygamist compound in West Texas hit close to home for Ginnifer Goodwin, who plays one of Bill Paxton's three wives in HBO's Big Love.
