Actress Camryn Manheim had difficulty playing Jonathan Rhys Meyers' mother in the new US TV mini-series ELVIS - because she was strongly attracted to the Irish star.

During filming for the series, which debuted in America on Sunday (08MAY05), Manheim had to suppress her urges to kiss the Alexander heart-throb, and it proved a big challenge to restrain herself,

She says, "He's spectacular, he's fearless, he's gorgeous... I had to play his mother, when all I really wanted to was just French kiss him, he's so cute! It's not fair. I had the biggest crush on him."
