The steamy love scene between Christina Ricci and Charlize Theron in MONSTER was just like a pyjama party for the two leading ladies.

Rather than being daunted by the experience, both A-list actresses found filming the scene hilarious.

Christina recalls, "I'm like 'Omigod, I have to touch her right nipple'. Everybody thought it would be intense and serious.

"And then all you could hear was the two of us cackling under the covers, making weird lewd jokes. Charlize kept saying it was a slumber party gone horribly wrong."
