Ryan and Melissa struck up a thing while filming the Sabrina the Teenage Witch movie together in 1996. In 2013, Melissa revealed that Ryan tried too woo her during filming and gifted her with a luxury Beluga watch when shooting wrapped and recounted a steamy makeout session during an interview with Chelsea Handler. "He was 17 and I was, like, 19," she said. "I was like, 'You're too young for me.' So I stopped his car . . . and I wasn't sure; 'am I gonna get mad at him?'" She went on: "I just grabbed him and started kissing him. You get a piece of jewelry like that, you gotta make out with the guy!"
In her 2016 memoir, Melissa Explains It All: Tales From My Abnormally Normal Life, she revealed that not only did Ryan's now-wife Blake Lively know about their brief romance, but that she also reached out to Melissa to "help her with a birthday present for Ryan." Was it a Beluga watch, by chance?
