Matthew Goode has admitted snogging Nicole Kidman for his new film was a nerve-wracking experience.
The British actor got up close with the Rabbit Hole star on the set of new thriller Stoker, in which he plays Uncle Charlie, the brother-in-law to Nicole’s grieving widow.
"We have a couple of interesting scenes together, a bit of kissing going on. But she’s lovely, because you never know quite what to expect with someone who’s been a huge star for that long. She was really, really generous," Matthew revealed.
He said of locking lips with the A-lister: “It’s a bit nerve-wracking. We were just doing a recce one day and we went to this house and Nicole’s such a pro, she started going into the scene and I was like, ‘Oh my God’.”
Matthew’s niece in the film is played by The Kids Are All Right’s Mia Wasikowska, who the actor describes as “a super-talent”.
The actor - who’s also the new Jameson Cult Film Club Ambassador - added: “This film sort of opens with a funeral. It was my brother and the husband and father to Nicole and Mia. He’s been away for 20 odd years and he’s quite charming seemingly, and then various incidences start happening which are sort of bizarre and unexplained and then we find out there’s this possible predisposition in the family bloodline to do naughty things, let’s put it like that.
"It was a huge surprise to get involved and a really great experience."
May you never steal, lie or cheat but
If you must steal then steal away my sorrows and
If you must lie then lie with me all nights of my live and
If you must cheat then please cheat death
Because I could not live a day without you….
