A love connection was brewing behind the scenes of the ’90s TV movie “Sabrina the Teenage Witch.”
Ryan Reynolds played the love interest of Melissa Joan Hart’s character in the film, but apparently things were getting steamy for the pair off camera as well.
Hart told Australia’s “Studio 10” that she and Reynolds had a brief fling but it didn’t go very far because she already had a man.
Melissa Joan Hart and Ryan Reynolds starred on the movie version of “Sabrina the Teenage Witch.”
“He was very sweet. I had a boyfriend at the time but we were smitten and cute and he was adorable,” she said. “He was a really, really nice guy.”
Hart said she ended up breaking things off with the other guy, and now thinks she should have pursued something with Reynolds.
“(He) probably would have been a great boyfriend,” she said. “Maybe I should have taken a chance.”
In a 2014 interview with E!’s Giuliana Rancic the actress dished on her and Reynolds short-lived romance admitting that she pounced on Reynolds and kissed him on the last day of filming. Hart said the actor, in his late teens at the time, had given her a pricey Bulova watch as a present.

“I chased him down, got in front of his car and just kissed him and then made out with him all night,” she said at the time. “Then I had to call my boyfriend the next day and explain it.”
The movie version of “Sabrina the Teenage Witch” was eventually turned into a hit Disney channel show but Reynolds was replaced as Sabrina Spellman’s love interest with actor Nate Richert.
