There he was – Han Solo, Indiana Jones – just waiting to be kissed.
But Viola Davis, who had a major crush on Harrison Ford when she was younger, just couldn't pull the trigger on her planned "ambush-kiss" on the set of Ender's Game.
"Listen, I didn't want to say he was a crush of mine when I was a very young girl, because I did not want to be disrespectful of his age. But I wanted to ambush him," Davis, 48, told PEOPLE at the film's Los Angeles premiere Monday. "But it did not happen."

When it comes to shaping up for her latest role, Viola Davis is turning to one of the hottest bodies in Hollywood for inspiration: Hugh Jackman.
The actress says she's following the so-called "Wolverine diet" to play Susie Brown in the upcoming James Brown biopic, Get on Up.
"[I'm] losing a little weight. When I say 'a little,' I mean 'a little,' " she told PEOPLE Saturday at the Los Angeles Hammer Museum's 11th Annual Gala In The Garden. "I'm not a weight girl much."

Viola Davis's husband is a pretty special guy. In fact, says the actress, he was heaven sent.
The Oscar nominee for The Help tells October's Essence, on newsstands Friday, that she prayed for a certain type of man to come into her life – and then he did.
"I asked for a husband who was emotionally available, someone who was older, someone who maybe had a family before," she says. "I like older men. Someone from the South. Someone who loves God more than he loves himself."

Having recently told Katie Couric during an interview that she does have a boyfriend, Jessica Chastain made what is apparently her first public appearance with him Friday night, at the Women in Film 6th annual Pre-Oscar Cocktail Party.
Arriving arm and arm together at Fig & Olive in Los Angeles, the Zero Dark Thirty Best Actress nominee and Gian Luca Passi de Preposulo sipped Perrier-Jouët Champagne in the main room before Chastain spotted her costar from last year's The Help, Viola Davis, and Davis's husband.
Chastain, 35, hugged and kissed the 31-year-old Passi, making it clear to all who saw them that the two are, in fact, a couple.
