Screen beauty Kate Beckinsale revealed that co-star Colin Farrell felt awkward when it came to filming sex scenes on their latest movie, Total Recall.
Kate admitted Farrell felt under pressure because her husband, director Len Wiseman, was filming their steamy scenes.
'I think it was worse for Colin," she said. "It's awkward if you have to fondle the director's wife. Especially with Len saying, "all right, that's it, you're fired!"'
However, she admitted she is very fond of the Irish actor who is making his comeback in big budget movies in the film.
"He's lovely. He's such a good actor, really professional and a brilliant dad," she said. "There's nothing bad you can say about Colin - and he's funny as well. I hate him!"
Total Recall is tipped to be Farrell's big comeback movie as it's his first starring role in a major studio movie since shooting the box office flops Alexander and Miami Vice.
Farrell beefed himself up for his big action role in the €150 million blockbuster movie.
He hit the gym with a vengeance in a bid to boost his muscles for the remake of Total Recall which previously starred Arnold Schwarzenegger.
The movie is expected to be released in the United States in August this year.
