Idris Elba says kissing Beyonce wasn’t exactly what he expected…
Idris Elba Calls Kissing Beyonce Weird
The 40-year-old chocolate man-banger played Beyonce‘s husband in the 2009 thriller, and the pair had to lock lips on many occasions and Idris admits that then hanging out with Jay Z was “a bit weird”.
Via Yahoo UK reports:
In an interview with Event magazine, Idris said that he found it a little odd to be going for a drink with Jay Z, but he obviously likes Idris as the pair worked on an album together.
“That was a bit weird,” the actor said of kissing Beyonce. “We did a lot of the kissing scenes on day one of filming. I guess it was an icebreaker…”
He then added: “[Jay-Z’s] cool. We’ve worked together [on his American Gangster album] – there’s a lot of respect there.”
Idris, who created and starred in the hit BBC One drama Luther, then admitted that he wasn’t scared of kissing the Single Ladies star.
“It wasn’t as scary as Catherine Deneuve. That was my most terrifying screen kiss [in the 1999 French movie Belle Maman]. I was petrified.” He added: “I mean, that woman is a legend.”
Well at least he had respect for Jay and didn’t try anything. Not all men are that respectful. We’d slob down Idris any day!
