Music mogul Simon Cowell has confessed he once went on a date with former Bond girl Denise Richards – when she was pregnant with her second child.
Appearing on Howard Stern’s Sirius XM Radio show, the Brit opened up with his “bizarre kind of blind date” in Beverly Hills with the actress shortly after she split from Charlie Sheen.

He told Stern, “She’s cute… She turned up eight months pregnant and had a dog in her handbag… (but) she is gorgeous. I liked her a lot… She’s funny, a bit of a wacko… but I like that.”

And it wasn’t a one-off date: “We met up afterwards.”

But there was no romance and Cowell is now engaged to make-up artist Mezhgan Hussainy, while Richards, who is currently single, went on to date rocker Richie Sambora.
