"I didn't say the word affair, ever," Kirstie, 61, told Kimmel. "It wasn't sexual affairs."

She said that she fell in love with Travolta -- and he reciprocated -- while shooting the 1989 comedy Look Who's Talking, in which they played love interests of one another. (She added she has an excellent relationship with Travolta's wife, Kelly Preston.)

"It's a little hard not to confuse the boundaries," the actress said. "When you're on a set for six months, the lines get blurred. You see stars get divorced everyday because people DO have sex, Jimmy!"

Kirstie said that she kept her then-husband Stevenson aware of her feelings for the hunky leading men.

"He knew about it then -- I told him as we went along," she said. "I can’t believe he didn’t kill me. He should’ve...he hit me with a towel one day and I went down with a towel.

The Loverboy star said she debated acting like she was hurt, but says if the roles were reversed, "I would’ve kicked the f*** out of him!"
