By bringing together personal anecdotes and career retrospectives, actress Melissa Joan Hart shares her experiences with pop icon Britney Spears and expresses lingering feelings of guilt from their younger years when they were still closer.

Melissa Joan Hart and Britney Spears' paths first crossed when Hart starred in Spears' music video for "(You Drive Me) Crazy." At that time, Spears was a 17-year-old emerging pop star while Hart was a 23-year-old established actress.

The collaboration resulted in a friendship, with the two spending considerable time together. "Britney and I got to do a lot of press together. And we had a lot of fun together during this time," Hart told Entertainment Tonight in a recent career retrospective interview.

However, Hart now expresses regret over some decisions made during those years, particularly taking the underage Spears to her first nightclub. "She was underage and young and 0 but I [was] just like, 'Let's go out. We're just gonna go out and have some fun,' " Hart recalled, adding, "I feel really guilty about that still to this day because I should have known better, being a big sister."

In hindsight, Hart acknowledges the stark differences in their lifestyles and responsibilities. "I would go to a club every night - I love dancing and I loved going out, but I also knew to be responsible and, like, when to stop," she said.

Her remarks are shadowed by the fact that Spears struggled with partying in the early 2000s, leading to a highly publicized conservatorship under her father Jamie Spears, which was later terminated in November 2021 after the widespread #FreeBritney movement.

The friendship between the two stars naturally dwindled over the years. "I saw her when she was doing her Vegas residency a few years back, but she was doing her show so, you know, it was a quick hello backstage and that was it," Hart shared, reflecting on their infrequent encounters.

Despite the past, Melissa Joan Hart continues to focus on her own career and life. She can next be seen in the Lifetime movie "The Bad Guardian", which premieres on May 18.
