Debra Messing: Jeremy Piven "Shoved His Tongue" Down My Throat on Will & Grace

She "wasn't a fan"

Liz Raftery

"The very first day of rehearsal, he shoved his tongue all the way down to my heart," Messing told Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens: Livethis week. "I was just like, 'Whoa!' ... Every time, he went for it."

Piven appeared on the show in 2000 as Grace's former boyfriend, who asks her to join him and his current girlfriend for a threesome. Messing says that, thanks to their sloppy lip-locks, she "wasn't a fan" of the Entourage alum at the time.
