Renee Zellweger needed eight takes to get an on-screen kiss with actress Jacinda Barrett right for her latest movie.

The Hollywood star was filming the scene for sequel Bridget Jones: THE EDGE OF REASON, when nerves got the better of her and she needed to repeat the smooching scene with her Australian co-star.

A source says, "They were very nervous about sharing their first kiss, but they were total professionals.

"They also received a lot of support from the crew - most of whom were male and most of whom grew more and more supportive as the take count climbed ever higher."
