Julia Louis-Dreyfus or Elaine Benes
Jerry Seinfeld dated a total of 66 women on screen in Seinfield and Julia Louis Dreyfus, a.k.a Elaine Benes, certainly happens to be the most memorable of them all. Elaine and Jerry were romantically involved before the show started and thus, their chemistry on-screen was great. Though the two were not together on the show initially, NBC executives requested Larry David to write an episode where the two come together. Consequentially, David wrote ‘The Deal’ in which Elaine and Jerry enter into a kind of friends-with-benefits scenario after watching soft porn on television.

Christine Taylor or Ellen
Through the show, Jerry used the weirdest of excuses to break up with his girlfriends. His reason to break up with Ellen, played by Christine Taylor, was certainly very weird.

Jami Gertz or Jane
Jami Gertz guest-starred in Seinfeld’s season 5 episode titled The Stall and gave us one of the most famous interactions on the show. We bet you remember the line ‘can you spare a square?’ Funnily, it is Kramer’s addiction to phone sex that eventually reveals Jane’s true occupation in the episode. The episode was incredibly funny and Jami portrayed the character very well; which is not very surprising given that Jami is an established actress with films like The Lost Boys, Quicksilver and Crossroads under her kitty.
Jami may have played a mean character on the show. But in real life, she won American billionaire Antony Ressler, the co-founder of the private equity firms Apollo Global Management and Ares Management, with her sweet nature and the couple got married in 1989. The couple has three children. Jami doesn’t act much anymore but when your net worth is $3 billion, who needs an acting job!
