VIDEO: Colin Firth Found It Difficult Kissing Julianne Moore
Actor Colin Firth has been making the rounds promoting his movie, A Single Man, for which he is NOMINATED for an OSCAR! WOOOOHHOOOOO.
In the movie, co-starring Julianne Moore and directed by Tom Ford (yes, designer Tom Ford), Colin plays a gay professor whose long time love dies. Julianne Moore plays his best friend, who is in love with him. There is a scene where she makes a move, and it’s not SUPPOSED to be returned. But that was more difficult for Colin than he expected.
He said: “It never occurred to me that there was any issue about playing gay until Julianne kissed me and I had to resist. Julianne made that moment very difficult as I wasn’t supposed to enjoy it.
“That was the one moment when Tom Ford had to get on my case.
“He said: ‘You’re supposed to be a gay man! Jesus Christ! Keep your hands to yourself and get your tongue out of her face!’” [CelebrityNewsNow]
Oh my gawd, just imagining Tom Ford saying that makes me laugh. “get your tongue out of her face!”
Let’s hope that the academy considers just had difficult this role was for Colin and gives him that flippin’ Oscar!
