Boy Meets World - Danielle Fishel: 'Ben Savage And I Didn't Really Date'

Former Boy Meets World actress Danielle Fishel has set the record straight on rumours suggesting she enjoyed a real-life romance with her onscreen love interest Ben Savage, insisting they only ever went on one date.

The 31-year-old beauty, who starred as Topanga Lawrence in the 1990s coming-of-age sitcom, admits she inadvertently sparked the gossip herself after an appearance on a U.S. talk show years ago, but she tells Maxim magazine the longtime pals quickly decided they were better off keeping their relationship platonic.

Stripping down to her lingerie for a sexy new covershoot, she explains, "That rumour was entirely my fault because I once said, on The Tyra Banks Show, that Ben and I went on a date, and that turned into 'Danielle and Ben dated.' We went on one date, when I was about 15, and by the time the dinner was over we realised mutually that we were more like family than lovers."

Fishel and Savage are set to reunite onscreen for the upcoming Boy Meets World spin-off series, Girl Meets World, which will focus on the life of the married couple's teenage daughter.
