Who Is Ryan Reynolds Dating?
From Scarlett Johansson to Wife Blake Lively, All the Stars Ryan Reynolds Dated Through the Years
Melissa Joan Hart
Reynolds and Hart struck up "a little thing" while filming the "Sabrina the Teenage Witch" movie together in 1996, according to Hart's Feb. 20 appearance on the "Hey Dude... the '90s Called!" podcast.
Hart has never been shy about her brief connection with Reynolds. In 2013, Hart revealed that Reynolds tried to woo her during filming and gifted her with a luxury Beluga watch when shooting wrapped. Recounting a steamy makeout session on "Chelsea Lately," she explained. "He was 17 and I was, like, 19. 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" (via People), she revealed that not only is Reynolds's now-wife Blake Lively aware of their brief romance, but Lively also reached out to Hart to "help her with a birthday present for Ryan." Was it a Beluga watch, by chance?
Later, in a 2017 interview on Australia's "Studio 10," Hart admitted she was "smitten" with Reynolds when they worked together, but that she unfortunately was dating someone else at the time. "He was adorable," Hart said. "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!"
