Sexy sideline reporter Jenn Sterger, who was allegedly bombarded with X-rated photos and voicemails from Brett Favre, said she never even met the ex-Jets quarterback and at times felt "intimidated" by the attention he was giving her.

Sterger, the former New York Jets game day hostess who was at the center of the Favre sexting scandal, said, "I've never met him. We've never met."

In an interview with ABC's "Good Morning America" that aired Monday, Sterger said the closest she ever came to Favre was when they would pass each other in the tunnels at the old Giants Stadium before and after games.

Sterger, however, said Favre did try to meet her in 2008.

"He was like that guy at the bar that just could not get the hint," she recalled.

Both Sterger and Favre worked for the Jets in 2008 when the randy granddaddy allegedly threw a pass at the curvy game-day hostess, as was first reported last October by the sports blog Deadspin.com.

Sterger said she never made any money off the Favre texts or voicemails. She said she's stayed out of the spotlight over the past few months in an effort to rebuild her TV career.

"You know, I was trying to go to work. Do my job," Sterger said. "But how are you supposed to report on the news when you are the news. ... It was tough. It was embarrassing. It was humiliating. All I wanted to do was go to work. Do my job. That's all I wanted."

In an interview Sunday with The Post, Sterger's manager Phil Reese confirmed that he turned down many offers.

Reese said he and Sterger together turned down $300,000 worth of offers, many of which Reese ruled out because he thought they were bogus offers, or publicity stunts.

Sterger was approached by a Jets employee who asked for her number. When she refused, Favre somehow got his hands on it.

Sterger, 27, said she started getting text messages, then a series of voicemails. At first, she said she didn't know who was contacting her.

"Whenever I would reply, it was more to try to figure out who I was interacting with," she said. "It was the same number, always. The texts, the pictures. The voicemails. There was no actual, 'Hey, Jenn. It's Brett.'"

In time, Sterger said she figured it out.

Sterger said she was never flattered by the attention.

"He's married," she said. "And more than anything I feel like it was intimidating."
