Sir Anthony Hopkins was left red faced during auditions for 1997 movie The Edge when Elle Macpherson passionately kissed him in a bid to land a leading role.
The stars played husband and wife in the drama and the supermodel, 48, was left cringing as she recalled her audition on Britain's The Graham Norton Show on Friday night (20May11).
She explains, "I've made a couple of movies along the way and there was one movie casting with Anthony Hopkins, he was playing my husband, and there's quite an age difference between us and they (producers) said, 'OK, we really have to feel that you two are connected', and so they said (at auditions), 'We want to feel like you're really intimate with each other'. I didn't know what to do; they said, 'Why don't you kiss him?'
"I didn't know if you're supposed to kiss with the tongue, without the tongue, so I grabbed him and I kissed him, and I thought if I really wanna do this, I better do the tongue thing, make it believable. He went so red, he was flustered. I got the job though!"
