With his rippling muscles and dream eyes, it would be hard to resist model Sam Asghari if he made a flirty move.
But when the 24-year-old first met his now-girlfriend Britney Spears back in 2016 on a music video shoot, things didn’t exactly go to plan due to a pick-up line fail.
“I was excited that I get to meet one of the biggest artists of all time,” he told Men’s Health in a new interview. “I had butterflies.”
Sam revealed he tried to break the ice with Britney with a cheeky line, but unfortunately it fell a little flat.

“She said, ‘Hi, I’m Britney,’ and I said, ‘I’m sorry. What’s your name again?’” he recalled. “I tried to be funny. I don’t think anybody got it.”
Fortunately the dud pick-up line wasn’t a massive dealbreaker for Brit, who still exchanged numbers with the fitness model and asked him out on a sushi date a few months later.
Sam revealed no one knew the pair were dating once the Slumber Party music video was released, but the pair never really “had the intention to just be friends”.
Mother-of-two Britney recently opened up about the pair’s romance with a sweet message shared on her Twitter account.
“I’ve been with this man for over a year… everyday he inspires me to be a better person and that makes me feel like the luckiest girl in the world!!” the 36-year-old wrote back in February.
