Katherine Heigl had to pull the John Mayer card to convince her husband Josh Kelley to commit.

The actress revealed during The Meredith Vieira Show that she once threatened to date singer John in order to push her longtime beau to marry her.

"Around the same time I met Josh, I also met John Mayer," the former Grey's Anatomy actress, 35, said. "John Mayer and I are from neighboring towns and knew some of the same people. My Josh had gone off on tour and was playing hard to get. So I didn't know are we a thing? Are we a couple?"

As she questioned the relationship, she also spent a lot of time with Mayer, who's been a dating magnet going out with Jessica Simpson, Jennifer Aniston, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Taylor Swift and Katy Perry.

Though Heigl swears they were just friends, the idea did make Kelley nervous.

"These musicians, they are competitive and jealous of each other," Heigl teased. "So over the phone, because he was on tour, I was like, 'Josh, I've got to be honest. I just want to know where we stand because if not, I might try to pursue something with John.'"

Heigl said it wasn't until year after the marriage that Josh got to know the truth.

"I confessed probably a year into our marriage. I was like, 'You got played!'" she gushed.

The duo met in 2005 and tied the knot in 2009. They share two daughters Naleigh, 5, and Adalaide, 2.
