The high-octane excitement of a movie set can cause some actors’ tempers to run high but serves as an irresistible aphrodisiac to others, leading to unlikely affairs and incredible infidelities.
Here are five infamous romances that occurred during the shooting of iconic films – some of them are simply unbelievable!
5. Daniel Craig and Dame Judi Dench – Casino Royale
James Bond is the ultimate ladies man but when Daniel Craig adopted the role, he was shy and unable to talk easily to women having only ever kissed four girls.
Enter Dame Judi Dench, an experienced thespian who taught Craig a thing or two about acting both in and out (and in and out!) of the bedroom.
Craig, under Dench’s expert tutelage, quickly became a sex symbol, married the beautiful Rachel Weisz and is strongly tipped to be the next Bond.
4. Mark Hamill and Yoda – The Empire Strikes Back
This sensational affair was revealed by Mook News just a few months ago. The piggybacks, the swamp air, and the experience of an actor with 800 years under his belt was just too much for the young Hamill to resist.
Hamill has reportedly attempted to repeat the master-student relationship with Daisy Ridley on the set of The Last Jedi, but so far his ‘tradition’ arguments are not being well received by the aspiring actress.
3. Julie Andrews and her Umbrella – Mary Poppins
Mary Poppins was legendary for being a sex- and drug-filled shoot, with its star Julie Andrews encouraging a number of underage actors to take hallucinogenic drugs, offering a spoonful of sugar to assist the intake of Class A narcotics.
Andrews was notoriously fussy when it came to choosing men and the charms of the soon-to-be Diagnosis Murder stalwart Dick van Dyke didn’t tempt her.
She was often seen spending hours in her trailer with only a pot of honey and her umbrella. Was this the birth of the vibrator? Perhaps.
2. Zac Efron and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson – Baywatch
We all saw this one coming. Two actors on top of their game. The steamy Baywatch set. Sun, sea, sand and sex.
Given their musical and wrestling backgrounds, neither actor is shy in respect of experimentation with Johnson reportedly giving the High School Musical star up to three Rock Bottoms a day.
1. King Louie and Baloo – The Jungle Book
The self-proclaimed King of the Swingers was always going to be on the look out for unconventional lovemaking on the set of The Jungle Book and King Louie found a willing experimental partner in Baloo, the marijuana-smoking, ant-eating bear.
Baloo himself faced several sexual harassment lawsuits from members of the set who were unhappy with his constant demand for back scratches and massages, but found solace in his sexy dance routines with the ‘Jungle VIP’ on and off the set.
We’d love to have been a fly on the wall during some of these sensational on-set flings…
