The 34-year-old actress revealed that he was her first-ever on-screen smooch while on the red carpet at the 2017 Screen Actors Guild Awards on Sunday (January 29) in Los Angeles.
“That was actually my first real professional job,” Sophia told Giuliana Rancic about the 2002 film Van Wilder. “He was my first onscreen Hollywood kiss, and he was a gentleman — so thank you, sir!”
She added, “Honestly, it was just how strange it was, you know? Because you see these things happen on camera, and they look flirtatious or fun or sexy, and there’s 40 people standing around you. They’re adjusting exactly the tilt of your face so you’re not blocking the other person’s light, and your hand has to go here but not here, and it’s really not sexy. And so we do our best to sell it, but it’s a very bizarre process.”
FYI: Sophia is wearing a Marchesa dress, Stuart Weitzman shoes, a Jimmy Choo clutch, and Jacob & Co jewels.
