Ben Savage's talk with Huffington Post Live yesterday has a ton of golden moments — but one of the shinier ones is definitely when he got put on the spot about his character Cory Matthews's first kiss with Topanga Lawrence (Danielle Fishel) in the first season of Boy Meets World. After all, the pair ended up getting hitched at the end of the series, and will reprise their roles, now as parents, later this week in the spin-off Girl Meets World!
After watching the adorable clip, featuring little Cory after a hair-relaxing mishap, Ben was asked whether that was his first-ever kiss. Ben waffled. "You know when you're little I think people forget you have little pecks with girls, you know," he said, making little kissy noises. "I'll say this, it was my first official kiss on a TV show in front of millions of people ... No pressure!"
So… how'd it feel? "I was nervous," Ben admitted. "We tape it in front of a live audience and there's hundreds of people watching, so it's a lot of pressure for a little kid. It's still a lot of pressure."
HuffPo didn't let Ben avoid the original question for too long: Was it his first kiss? "I was so cool by the time I was 12. I was so accomplished," joked Ben, before adding, "I'm sure it was my first official kiss. I don't remember. It's been a long time."
Uhhh dude, is there really an amount of time that can make you forget your first kiss?
Girl Meets World premieres this Friday, June 27, at 9:45 p.m. on the Disney Channel.
