'I remember everyone would walk up to me after the show aired and they'd be like, 'Are you and Paul dating in real life?''

'Because everyone thought that we had such good chemistry.'

The actress says she's come to understand there's, 'a fine line between love and hate.'

'We despised each other so much, that it read as love... We really just didn't get along the first maybe five months of shooting.'

She explains why they didn't get on, 'when you work with anyone, or are spending a lot of time with anyone, little things are gonna annoy you about them.'

'It's like a relationship, we were basically married... we were together every day, we were kissing and doing all this stuff.'

'But we didn't have sex, so, yeah, just like a marriage!'

Despite their rocky start, Nina says they 'ended up in a good place' and he's become one of her 'best friends.'

She admits she, 'never thought that he would be one of [her] best friends.'
