The famous on screen compatibility of “The Cosby Show” family of actors made for one heck of a ride for viewers. But behind the scenes, teenage hormones had a small effect on the famous sitcom family's dynamics.

During a recent Access Hollywood interview, Malcolm Jamal Warner, who played the Cosby's only son Theo from age 13 to 21, admitted that he had a crush on Lisa Bonet, who played his older sister Denise.

“But you know, I never had a shot," he said. "You just know. At 13, 14, you know when you have a shot or not, even at that age.”

But although a romance between the two never flourished, things all turned out for the best. Warner, who is now 43, added there is a “genuine mutual respect” among his cast members that endures to this day.

“We all bonded over such a unique experience, no matter how much time goes by that we don’t speak, that bond is still there, very strong.”
