When Long bared all in front of Applegate
London, Aug 16, Actor Justin Long was embarrassed after he accidentally bared all in front of actress Christina Applegate while filming the new movie “Going The Distance”.
The actor, who plays the love interest of real-life on-off girlfriend Drew Barrymore in the romantic comedy, accidentally bared all during one scene with Applegate. And director Nanette Burstein liked Applegate’s shock reaction so much she asked him to reenact the take, before she eventually cut it from the film.
“There was one scene where I go up to surprise Drew… Applegate comes around the corner, catches me in a towel… During one take… I gestured with my hand that was holding the towel to the upstairs bathroom, drop the towel, and so…,” contactmusic.com quoted him as saying.
“We had to turn the camera around to Christina – to get her reaction. So generous giving actor that I am, I had to do exactly what I did again.”
Long says it wont be easy for him to forget the horror of going full-frontal for a day on set with Applegate – who played his childhood crush Kelly Bundy on hit US TV series “Married with Children”.
“I grew up watching (Christina in ‘Married with Children’) – who didn’t have a crush on Christina, on Kelly Bundy? It was one of those surreal (moments).”
