The 37-year-old actress recalled the embarrassing incident during an appearance on 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show', revealing she mistakenly showed a picture of "a man's nether-regions" to the TV star.

Alison shared: "I'm so glad that you remember that we met before even though I feel like it was a little embarrassing for me.

"The nature of our meeting was, you know, I was rushing into the gym and I had been receiving some sort of prank texts that morning. And, you know, I've known our trainer Jason for a while so I share things with him all the time.

"And I came in bursting like, ‘Hey guys, you gotta see what I've been receiving on my phone!' And as I go to show him, there you are, just passing by, you're sort of just lunging by. And you were like, ‘What's going on?'

"And I whipped around - I think before I realised it was you - I was like, ‘Look at this!' And, you know, it was a photo of a man's nether-regions."

Alison - who has been married to Hollywood star Dave Franco since 2017 - apologised to Ellen for the awkward incident.

She also confirmed that the man in the photo was a "stranger".

The actress told Ellen: "I really kind of put it in your face and I apologise."

Meanwhile, Alison previously admitted to "feeling satisfied in life" after marrying Dave.

The actress feels she now knows and understands herself better than ever.

Speaking in 2017, she explained: "Being in my mid-30s, I’m feeling satisfied in life. I got married earlier this year. I think there are a lot of [areas] where I figured out what I want. I know who I am and I’m proud of it."
