The Graham Norton Show: Russell Crowe admits Cate Blanchett is his best kiss
Russell Crowe has confessed his Robin Hood co-star Cate Blanchett holds the crown for his best on-screen kiss.
Crowe, 49, who has also puckered up to the likes of Renée Zellweger, Kim Basinger and Meg Ryan, makes the admission as he and his Man Of Steel castmates Henry Cavill and Amy Adams talk sex scenes on tonight’s Graham Norton Show.
‘Currently the mantle is held by Cate Blanchett until further experiences,’ the Aussie actor told Norton.
But Superman Cavill reckons getting down and dirty in front of the camera isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.
‘Normally when you’re thinking about having sex with someone you are alone,’ he explained. ‘When you’re on set you’ve got at least 12 very heavily set men watching you and it’s not comfortable. Things aren’t happening as naturally as they should and it’s not nearly as sexy as one may imagine.’
Nevertheless, the hunky stars both agree that they’ve let themselves go since their latest flick.
Talking about the huge amount of training that went into getting Superman fit, Cavill said: ‘I trained for nine months. I look nothing like that now. It’s a Superman shape and great for playing Superman but not much else.’
Russell interjects, ‘There were four of us on the same hellish contract. We actually had to sign a deal that we would only eat the food the studio supplied for about three and half months. That was a bit odd. You’re sort of hungry all the time. At one point I was brought down to only 1800 calories a day.’
Recalling the moment the food amnesty was over, Cavill said: ‘I had a whole apple pie, a tub of ice cream and a large pizza, followed by the best food coma of my life.’
The Graham Norton Show airs tonight on BBC One at 10.35pm.
