Shot in the dark: When an inebriated director showered kisses on his film's actress
We have heard of casting couches and casting couches. But very rarely these liaisons are taken outside closed doors.
Looks like this A-list actress and a director -- known for his temper -- seemed to have thrown caution to the wind. He was recently spotted getting out of her home and trying to kiss her in the lift, much to the shocked reactions of some neighbours.
The director, whose own marriage is said to be not going great guns, seemed absolutely smitten by the actress who plays the lead in his next film.
Says an onlooker, “To give her the due credit, the actress seemed extremely uncomfortable in the situation she was found in. After all, she stays in that building and she would be worried about her reputation. She had come out with the director to escort him till his car because he seemed sloshed to his gills. It was in the lift that he was trying to kiss her.
Even when they came out to the lobby, he continued trying to kiss her and she was trying to avoid being pecked in front of some ladies standing in the lobby. When he insisted on falling all over, she finally pushed him away.”
The actress somehow managed to get the director to his car and almost pushed him inside.
The source adds, “She seemed relieved that he finally managed to get into the car. She kept looking around sheepishly because a lot of people around were staring at them. She was clearly mighty embarrassed.”
