Melissa Joan Hart, Ryan Reynolds once ‘had a little thing’

Ryan Reynolds once stole her teenage Hart.

Melissa Joan Hart revealed that she “had a little thing” with Reynolds back when they were both teen actors.

“I dated [actor] Corky [Martin],” the “Clarissa Explains It All” alum said of Chris William Martin on Monday’s episode of the “Hey Dude … The 90s Called!” podcast, before adding, “And then kind of had a little thing with Ryan [Reynolds.]”

The actress, 46, explained that she met Reynolds, also 46, while working together on the “Sabrina The Teenage Witch” movie in 1996.

“I worked with Ryan Reynolds on the ‘Sabrina’ movie. The first movie we did, Ryan was in it,” she recalled.

In the movie, Hart played Sabrina and Reynolds portrayed her love interest, Seth. The film was then turned into a spin-off series, which ran for seven seasons from 1996 to 2003, though Reynolds was not involved.

Hart has discussed her flirtation with Reynolds in the past, telling the Australian morning show “Studio 10” in 2017 that their relationship never amounted to anything because she wasn’t single at the time.

“I had a boyfriend at the time, but we were smitten and cute and he was adorable,” Hart said of Reynolds at the time. “He was a really, really nice guy — probably would have been a great boyfriend — and I didn’t end up with the other guy. Maybe I should have taken a chance!”

However, Hart admitted to Chelsea Handler in 2013 that they did lock lips.

“He was 17 and I was, like, 19. I was like, ‘You’re too young for me,’” Hart recalled on “Chelsea Lately” at the time, via E! News. “So, I stopped his car … and I wasn’t sure; am I gonna get mad at him? I wasn’t sure, so I just grabbed him and started kissing him.”

She also said that Reynolds tried to woo her by presenting her with a Beluga watch.

“You get a piece of jewelry like that, you gotta make out with the guy!” the actress joked.

While her childhood crushes didn’t work out, Hart ended up marrying rocker Mark Wilkerson, 46, in 2003. She and the Course of Nature frontman share three sons: Mason, 17, Braden, 14, and Tucker, 10.

Meanwhile, Reynolds would go on to date a slew of famous beauties, including Scarlett Johansson, Sandra Bullock and Charlize Theron, before settling down with his wife, Blake Lively.

He and Lively, 35, got married in 2012 and share four kids: James, 8, Inez, 6, and Betty, 3, and their newborn baby.
