Last September, actress Diane Kruger visited Conan, where she told the story of her awful first date with Joshua Jackson, which included allergic reactions, excessive talking (on his end, anyway), and an ill-timed kiss. But her longtime boyfriend stopped by Conan O'Brien's show on Tuesday night to share his side of the story, which seemed much sweeter than her version.

The star of The Affair said they he only talked so much during their first date to avoid sitting in silence during her allergic reaction to flowers in the restaurant. Then, as he put it, "Why not lean in for the kiss?" Jackson also blamed their mixed signals on her German heritage. "That was her telling of a romantic story," he told O'Brien.

Still not won over by Jackson's side of things? To smooth things over, he sent her a box of flowers with Kleenex the next day. All together now: Awwww.

Watch the actor explain his infamous first date with Kruger—and the two years afterwards he spent pursuing her—here:
