Washington, Feb 23 : Hollywood actress Valerie Bertinelli has revealed that she dated filmmaker Steven Spielberg before getting married to rocker Eddie Van Halen.
The Jenny Craig spokeswoman made the revelation on the pre-taped Feb. 25 episode of 'The Oprah Winfrey Show'.
The 47-year-old also admitted that she and ex-husband Eddie Van Halen cheated on each other, which was the reason for their relationship's breakdown.
"I went up to read for Raiders of the Lost Ark which I was so wrong for," People quoted Bertinelli, as saying. "And the next day I got a call and some flowers ... [Spielberg] asked me out. We went out a few times ... And did more," she added.
Bertinelli is appearing on the talk show to promote her new tell-all book, 'Losing It: And Gaining My Life Back One Pound at a Time'.
