Long-ago lovers! Dax Shepard revealed on his podcast, “Armchair Expert,” that he dated Ashley Olsen about “15 [or] 16 years ago.” The actor opened up about what it was like to be in a relationship with the actress.

“She’s just the most wonderful person. She’s fantastic,” Dax, 47, gushed during his podcast on Monday, February 28. The Parenthood actor was speaking with his cohost Monica Padman about Ashley’s clothing line, The Row, when the topic of their past relationship came up.

“When we were dating, it was when she was putting all her energy and focus into launching that in a big way. So, I was able to see her meet with design teams and, like, run her s—t and she handled her [business], and it’s very impressive.”

Dax continued, “[Ashley and Mary-Kate are] sarcastic. I would imagine, on the surface, that’s a pretty weird pairing but she’s super funny, sarcastic and intelligent. And they are major f—king bosses.”

The Bless This Mess star also confessed that he had never seen the fashion designer’s role on the hit popular sitcom, Full House. “I luckily never saw that show,” he admitted. “Because I probably wouldn’t have been able to be attracted to Ashley if I knew her as a baby. I just saw her at a party and was kind of thunderstruck by her beauty.”
