Melissa Joan Hart has been happily married to Mark Wilkerson for 10 years, but before she met her true love, the actress spent her fair share of time with some famous men.
The 37-year-old actress and “Melissa Explains It All” author stopped by Access Hollywood Live on Tuesday where she dished on some past trysts.
Here’s what the actress spilled to Billy Bush & Kit Hoover:
On her first onscreen kiss with James Van Der Beek: “It was really awkward and really uncomfortable… just weird.”
On co-star Joey Lawrence’s obsession with Chapstick: “He’s a little bit of germaphobe, so there’s not that much skin on skin contact. [But] it’s a nice little lube [for kissing].”
On her make out session with a young Ryan Reynolds: “He gave me this beautiful watch and ran out of my dressing room. I chased him down and in the headlight of his car, I stopped him… and I just grabbed him and kissed him. We just made out all night… Ryan has grown up nicely.”
On locking lips with Backstreet Boy Nick Carter: “It was just one of those hot moments. We made out.”
On how Jerry O’Connell helped her meet her husband at The Kentucky Derby: “I met Mark and that [same] night I made out with Jerry. But, the next morning at the Derby races, Jerry is hitting on someone else and I said,’ Oh, I see how this is going to be.’ And then Jerry said to me, ‘When we get back to LA are we going to hang out?’ And I said, “I don’t think so, I think I met the man I’m going to marry.’”
“Melissa Explains It All” is available now.
