Aziz Ansari wishes he and Blake Lively could be texting pals.

On Monday’s “The Howard Stern Show,” Ansari mentioned that Lively was a big fan of his and once flagged him down at an event to talk.

Ansari, hopeful at the time that things between him and Lively might advance, then sent the actress a series of text messages.

Unfortunately, she wasn’t quite as interested in continuing their conversation.

Ansari kept those unanswered texts from 2011 in his phone, and he read them to Stern.

It was pretty hilarious.

Unfortunately for Ansari, Lively fell in love with Ryan Reynolds and just announced she’s having a baby with him — so it’s unlikely she’ll have much time for a new texting friendship.
