BEAU BRIDGES' son JORDAN had an unusual method of showing his attraction to Tori Spelling when they were growing up - he constantly put sand down her trousers.

The pair recently teamed up for the TV movie THE FAMILY PLAN, and Spelling learned that after so many years of believing otherwise, her old friend did have a crush on her.

She says, "We grew up together. His grandparents and my parents have beach houses next to each other in Malibu.

"I said to him, 'You were the only little boy I ever played with growing up, weren't we supposed to play doctor? We never did. Were you not interested in me?'

"He said, 'I had my ways of showing interest. I always put sand down your pants.'"
