Kate Winslet is no stranger to a sex scene — and judging by her latest interview ahead of the release of survival love story The Mountain Between Us — she has no qualms about dishing the dirt on what's it's like to get up close and personal with co-star #IdrisElba. But first, here's the trailer:
In a recent interview with E! News, both actors revealed how bizarre it can really be to shoot a love scene with someone who is not your partner, with Winslet admitting that it's "really awkward — it doesn't matter which way you look at it." However, considering she's fumbled about with a fair number of actors over her career, she also said that she found herself often giving #TheMountainBetweenUs director Hany Abu-Assad pointers on how it's done. Imitating herself on set, she laughed:
"Ok, everyone — this is how it's going to be."
But it was when she recalled what it was like to actually film a steamy scene with Idris — who, let's be honest, is quite possibly the most beautiful man we've ever set eyes upon — that she really grasped our attention. Disclosing to her co-star that her close friends turned green with envy when they heard that she would be planting her lips on his god-like visage, she said:
"All my friends are so jealous of me and they say, 'Can I just live vicariously for a minute, what was it like kissing Idris?' I say, 'Oh my darling, the pillowy lips..."
Yep, we're officially jealous too.
The Mountain Between Us is released on October 6, 2017
What would you give for a chance to smooch Idris's "pillowy lips?"
