Playing Alley Details Rejection From Swayze

Earlier this week, Kirstie Alley confessed to ET that she'd fallen in love with her married North and South co-star Patrick Swayze many years back. According to her, the two had never sealed the deal, but it wasn't for a lack of trying.

In Kirstie's new book, The Art of Men, the 61-year-old actress claims that after a night of dirty dancing and partying, she finally made her move on Patrick, but was ceremoniously rejected.

"I want to make love with you. I just don't care anymore, let's just do it," she remembers telling her hunky co-star in the heat of the moment.

Ever the gentleman, Patrick denied her proposition.

"No. Come on, you're drunk," he said. "Kirstie, you don't really want to do it. You're not that kind of girl."

While the star would later speak at Patrick's funeral in 2009, Kirstie reveals she still isn't sure his wife of 34 years, Lisa Niemi, ever caught wind of their on-set attraction.

"I have no idea if Lisa knows anything about Patrick and I…I was probably the least of Lisa's problems with Patrick."
