Supernatural actor Jensen Ackles didn't hold back when talking about his experience working with Jessica Alba.

He recalled being, "picked on," by her when he joined the cast for season two of Dark Angel in the early '00s.

Jensen was asked on the Inside of You with Michael Rosenbaum podcast what it was like working with Jessica, and he said, "she was horrible."

He recalled, "I was the new kid on the block, and I was picked on by the lead."

"It wasn't that she didn't like me," the actor said.

"She just was like, 'Oh, here's the pretty boy that network brought in for some more window dressing because that's what we all need.'"

Jensen described their relationship as, "the worst kind of bickering a brother and sister could do. She had it out for me."

But despite this, he insists he has a lot of respect for Jessica.

"I love Jess, which I know kind of contradicts what I just said."

He continued, "She was under an immense amount of pressure on that show."

"She was young, she was in a relationship, and that was rocky and causing some undue stress I believe on set," Jensen admitted.

At the time, Jessica was dating her co-star Michael Weatherly.

Jensen also recalled how kind she was to him on set when his grandfather passed away.

"She literally just walked into my trailer and held me for half an hour. It was that kind of a relationship."

The actor said they're on good terms now: "If she walked in, we'd be all hugs."
