Talk about serious violation of the no kiss and tell covenant.
Stone worked with De Niro in the movie Martin Scorsese’s epic Casino as a whale (large gambler) hustler who earns De Niro’s eye and affection.
“It was the actor that I admired the most and had, my whole career, was like, ‘I just want to sit across the table from Robert De Niro and hold my own.’ And maybe because I just held him in such extraordinary, high regard, and it was the pinnacle of the kissing moment for me. There was so much attached to it,” Stone said. “But I was just so madly in love with him as an actress to start with, that, you know, he probably could have hit me in the head with a hammer and I would have been like, ‘Oh, yeah!’ You know, but it was pretty fabulous.”Sharon Stone says there is one co-star who was ‘far and away’ the best kisser [Video]
Considering Stone’s history as a sex symbol and the amount of lips she’s kissed throughout her busy career in Hollywood, this is a curious admission.
Then again, it seems like she was more in awe of De Niro’s talent than other many other actors she’s worked with. Almost like student meets idolized teacher. In that sense, maybe this isn’t a fair comparison.
Saw another story this past week about Gene Kelly deep french kissing Debbie Reynolds to her horror in the famous movie Singing In The Rain.
“The camera closed in. Gene took me tightly in his arms…and shoved his tongue down my throat. ‘Eeew! What was that?,’ I screeched, breaking free of his grasp and spitting.
I ran around frantic, yelling for some Coca-Cola to cleanse my mouth. It was the early 1950s, and I was an innocent kid who had never been French-kissed. It felt like an assault. I was stunned that this 39-year-old man would do this to me.”Debbie Reynolds Said Her ‘Singin’ in the Rain’ Costar Gene Kelly Was a ‘Severe Taskmaster’ With Dreadful On-Screen Kisses
Debbie Reynolds was 19 at the time. Wouldn’t she want mouthwash? Given this is a long time ago, but Coca-cola as mouthwash?
In some ways, this reminds me of the lecherous doctor portrayed in the soap opera inside the movie Tootsie who delighted in kissing all the new women. It was some sort of creepy initiation.
In TV game shows, Richard Dawson was once the king of kissing
When it comes to kissing, probably nobody does it better than Family Feud host kisser extraordinaire, the late Richard Dawson.
Those kisses were all for “good luck” according to Dawson.
I’m having fun with this post, in case you haven’t noticed. So much darkness in the movie-related news lately that we need some levity for balance.
Play along with me. Is De Niro really the best kisser in the biz working today? How could we ever validate or invalidate this statement? Thanks Sharon 😉
