LOST star Josh Holloway was left with little choice about dating his wife Yessica Kumala when he first met her - because she demanded his phone number before they even had a conversation.

The couple, who exchanged nuptials last October (04), met seven years ago at Hollywood's Sunset Room, now called the Cabana Club, and Holloway admits that Kumala was the one who did all of the pursuing.

He says, "I tried to run, but when it's undeniable. it's undeniable.

"She gave me a slap on the shoulder, looked me up and down and said, 'Give me your number before you leave.'"

Indonesian beauty Yessica returned 30 minutes later to demand Holloway's phone number - and she refused to give hers.

The actor adds, "She had game."
