In the movie “The Holiday” Alex and Odette kiss and portray a loving couple for the first 37 seconds of the movie.
This is what Odette had to say about it:
Odette Yustman knows what it’s like to kiss Alex O’Loughlin for hours on end.Before their paths to stardom caught fire, the “You Again” and “Cloverfield” actress — who starts a series run when FOX debuts the security-firm sitcom “Breaking In” Wednesday, April 6 — locked lips with the current star of CBS‘ “Hawaii Five-0” reboot in the opening scene of “The Holiday,” the 2006 romantic-comedy movie in which Jack Black plays a composer who matches his music to footage of them.
“It’s so funny,” Yustman tells Zap2it. “In this business, you get asked to do certain things, and you do a lot of it to have contact with some big names and just get experience.
I remember my agent calling and saying, ‘There’s this small part at the start of the movie, and (writer-director) Nancy Meyers would love to meet you.’ And I thought, ‘How can I pass that up? Absolutely!’
“I met her, then I ended up having to kiss this guy for hours! It was a tricky shot because you had to get the angle right, so it was very specific; I’d say we were there for a good eight hours, at least.
We were troupers, though. I was in good company, and it was just a fun little thing. It’s one of those things you do when you’re just starting out.”
- Some girls have all the fun …….
- It is very rare to be credited for a movie, when you don’t talk in it and only appears in it for a few seconds kissing, even before the opening credits.
- After I ‘discovered’ Alex, I read that he was in the movie. I skipped the titles and started watching the dvd, never finding a kissing couple 😦
