Melissa Joan Hart Kisses and TellsBy: Meaghan Ellis - November 15, 2013
Who’s been a busy beaver? Melissa Joan Hart has been a busy beaver! However, it was her lips that did most of the work, and she wasn’t just talking. Word has it that the ’90s Clarissa Explains It All actress has absolutely no qualms about kissing and telling. Now a married mother of three, the 37-year-old actress is sharing all of the intriguing details in her new highly anticipated memoir, Melissa Explains It All.
On Tuesday, Nov. 12, Hart sat down with Access Hollywood. In the interview, she dished about some of her most memorable on-screen romances, and even some of the ones that took place when the cameras weren’t rolling. The details reveal that although she’s happily married now, she definitely had her fair share of “Hollywood hook-ups” over the years.
Hart shared the details of her first on-screen kiss, which was in 1993 on the Nickelodeon sitcom, Clarissa Explains It All. Hart shared the kiss with Dawson’s Creek star James Van Der Beek. “It was really awkward and really uncomfortable,” she admitted. “Just weird.”
While the first kiss was a total wreck, Hart admits that things got a little better with actor Ryan Reynolds, and former Backstreet Boy, Nick Carter. Hart revealed that she and Reynolds made out while shooting the 1996 TV movie version of Sabrina, the Teenage Witch. “He gave me this beautiful watch and ran out of my dressing room. I chased him down and in the headlight of his car, I stopped him . . . and I just grabbed him and kissed him. We just made out all night . . . Ryan has grown up nicely.”
As for her on-screen moments with Nick Carter, Hart went on to say, “It was just one of those hot moments. We made out.” Her admissions only make the memoir more intriguing, however, inquiring minds will just have to read the book to uncover all of the juicy details.
Melissa Explains It All: Tales from My Abnormally Normal Life was released Oct. 29, and is now available in stores.
