Los Angeles: Actress Melissa Joan Hart says that she and Ryan Reynolds, who was her co-star in 1996 TV series "Sabrina the Teenage Witch", enjoyed a momentary fling.

In an interview with Australian morning show "Studio 10", the 40-year-old actress reveals she almost dated the Canadian actor, reported People magazine.

"We were smitten and cute. He was adorable. He was a really nice guy.

"He wasn't like, the Ryan Reynolds everybody knows these days. He was very sweet," Melissa says.

She further adds Reynolds "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".

Melissa has been married to musician Mark Wilkerson since 2003. They share three sons together. Reynolds, meanwhile, has been married to actress Blake Lively since 2012. They have two daughters.
