Remakes are never an easy thing to pull off, but Colin Farrell managed to wow audiences with his performance in the action-filled “Total Recall” remake, where he perfectly reinterpreted the role originally played by Arnold Schwarzenegger. Opposite him was a star-studded cast that included two actors who played his love interests: Jessica Biel and Kate Beckinsale.
However, Farrell has admitted on several occasions that he had a less than stellar time making out with Beckinsale on-screen because her then-husband, Len Wiseman, was the director of the film. “She’s married to the director,” Farrell admitted on “Late Night with Conan O’Brien.” “It was moderately uncomfortable, not beating her up, because you don’t actually beat each other up. But kissing her was a little bit dodgy.” The “True Detective” star added in another ODE interview for “Total Recall” promotions that the kissing scenes with Beckinsale were “one of the more uncomfortable things” from his years of film experience. “No tongue allowed. Everyone got the memo,” the star quipped.
Wow! What an experience! But what did Beckinsale think of the scenes?
