May 10 (UPI) -- Diane Lane says she dated rock star Jon Bon Jovi when she was 20 years old.

Now 52, the actress shared details on Monday's episode of Watch What Happens Live about her five-month romance with the 55-year-old musician in the 1980s.

"Five months. I was 20," Lane confirmed. "And I think every girl should have such a wonderful experience when she's that young."

"I have some photos of him packing for the tour. Just all the jockstraps were lined up on the floor for the whole band to get through the whole tour," she added. "You have to [wear one] under those leather pants, sweating."

Lane previously addressed her relationship with Bon Jovi after the musician's former tour manager Rich Bozzett claimed in the book Sex, Drugs and Bon Jovi that she and Bon Jovi split after she started partying with Richie Sambora.

"My publicist said I could use a little edge, so I'll let others be quotable," she told the New York Daily News in 2010. It was "a quarter of a century ago, so I'm a little fuzzy."

Lane was married to Christopher Lambert from 1988 to 1994 and to Josh Brolin from 2004 to 2013, while Bon Jovi wed wife Dorothea in 1989. The actress shares daughter Eleanor with Lambert, while Bon Jovi is dad to daughter Stephanie and sons Jesse, Jacob and Romeo.
