Melissa Joan Hart is remembering what could have been with Ryan Reynolds.

Hart, the former Nickelodeon teen star guested on the “Hey Dude… The 90s Called!” podcast recently where she talked her big sitcom at the time, “Clarissa Explains It All” and another called “Fifteen.”

“Fifteen” happened to star a young Ryan Reynolds and actor Chris William Martin, who also goes by the name Corky Martin.

The “Sabrina the Teenage Witch” actress told the podcast she “dated Corky and kind of had a little thing with Ryan.”

“I met Corky… in Utah or something at a Nick Takes Over Your School [event] and we started phone dating from Vancouver to Orlando. Then I worked with Ryan Reynolds on the first ‘Sabrina’ movie. The first movie we did, Ryan was in it.”

This isn’t the first time Hart has talked about her previous infatuation with Reynolds. In 2017 she told PEOPLE she wished things had progressed between the two.

Things did progress on the last day Hart and Reynolds were shooting the “Sabrina” movie when the pair kissed.

In 2014 she told E!’s Giiuliana Rancic how she “chased him down.”

“I got in front of his car and just kissed him and then made out with him all night,” Hart said. “Then I had to call my boyfriend the next day and explain it.”

She decided to stick with her boyfriend even after Reynolds came to see her in New York.

In her 2013 book “Melissa Explains It All: Tales from My Abnormally Normal Life,” Hart did say the two wouldn’t have worked out.

“I had a boyfriend at the time,” she wrote. “[He] probably would have been a great boyfriend. And I didn’t end up with the other guy, so maybe I should have taken a chance!”

These days both actors are married. Hart to musician Mark Wilkerson since 2003 and Reynolds to Blake Lively since 2012.
