Aziz Ansari definitely had a crush on Blake Lively! The comedian stopped by Howard Stern’s SiriusXM radio show on Oct. 6, where he read several unanswered texts that he had sent to the ‘Gossip Girl’ star back in 2011.
Talk about embarrassing! Parks and Recreation star, Aziz Ansari, 31, shared the one-sided text conversation that he had with Blake Lively, 27, after they exchanged numbers back in 2011 with Howard Stern, 60, on his Oct. 6, SiriusXM show.
Aziz Ansari Blake Lively Texts — Reads Messages To Howard Stern
Aziz revealed on that he met the Gossip Girl star back in 2011, “I was at some event sometime and I had heard Blake Lively was a fan,” ENews reports. “I said, ‘hello,’ and, we talked for a little while, and she was really nice, and she was really into food, and I’m really into food, and so we started talking about that and about stuff…and we exchanged phone numbers.”
The comedian recalled that he then sent the blonde beauty a text shortly after saying, “Hey, it’s Aziz. The animal dinners are over now unfortunately but I will show you photos from when I went. It was very tasty. Are you going to the Met Ball?
Awkwardly enough Blake never answered and they actually ran into one another at the Met Ball! Aziz then recalled that he said, “I see her there, I’m like, ‘Hey, it’s me,'” he said. “And she’s bopping around to all these parties and she’s with Karl Lagerfeld…so, [later] I’m texting her like, to see where she’s at—this is about 11 o’clock that night, and I text her again and say, ‘Hey, it’s Aziz. Please tell Karl he needs to call me, it’s been too long since we bro’d out.'”
Once again the funny man received radio silence! Aziz revealed that he saw the actress one more time and reached out again. The site reports that he said, ‘I’m going to the Boom Boom Room for that after party. Hopefully this is your number? Either way, good seeing you.'”
This time she responded! “Maybe I’ll see you,” Blake said. “So weird, Karl was just saying how bummed he was to miss you.”
Aziz decided to send her one more message while he was a guest on the morning talk show. The site reports Aziz said, “Read these messages on Howard. Hope that’s cool. Doubt you’ll respond to this.”
Let’s hope he gets a response this time!

We definitely won’t fault the actress if she doesn’t respond to Aziz this time. As HollywoodLife.com previously reported, Blake announced on Oct. 6, that she and husband, Ryan Reynolds, 37, are expecting their first child by posting a sweet shot of the actress cradling her growing belly.
On her website, Preserve the actress said, “We had too much fun with this. Because there’s so much to share, we break up our first ever Preserve Celebration into multiple parts. In the upcoming days we will bring even more treats and fun. The entire next month will be sprinkled with highlights for women in this exciting chapter of their lives. Congratulations to all the expecting mothers out there. And thank you for being a part of our Preserve family.”
