Washington: Joel Madden, who has been married to Nicole Richie for two years now, has revealed that he initially had to beg the actress to date him.
Madden told Australia`s `60 Minutes` that the `Fashion Star` mentor was reluctant to go out with him but finally agreed after he kept asking her, Contactmusic reported.
The 34-year-old musician admitted that he is not the typical tall, dark or handsome guy that every woman wants.
Madden, who previously revealed that he proposed 10 times before Richie agreed to marry him, said that the couple was just friends in the beginning, but all he wanted was one date and a chance to get his foot in the door.
He added that his wife is pretty good at rejecting him.
