This Is Us - Season 3

Everyone had a TV crush when they were growing up, but not everyone was as lucky as Milo Ventimiglia, who ended up working with the object of his affection.

During a recent interview with EW, the cast of the freshman hit This Is Us got to know each other with a round of icebreakers, which included their first TV crush. Ventimiglia agreed with his TV son, Sterling K. Brown, on Winnie Cooper from The Wonder Years, but he had another crush, someone who he ended up working with in 2008’s Pathology.

“Yes, Winnie Cooper,” he said. “Then, I’m going to add Sam, Who’s The Boss, Alyssa Milano. Definitely had a crush with her and made it awkward when she played my fiancée in a movie.”

This Is Us, which also stars Chrissy Metz and Justin Hartley, airs Tuesdays at 10 p.m. ET on NBC. Watch the video above.
