Ben Chaplin Learns Screen Sex From Bullock And Kidman

23 April 2002 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Up and coming actor Ben Chaplin has learned to love on-screen sex scenes - after getting jiggy with superstars Nicole Kidman and Sandra Bullock. The British hunk is grateful he got his romantic starts with two such impressive actresses. He says of his saucy scenes with Kidman in Birthday Girl, "Nicole is great. She's very used to love scenes. In Birthday Girl, probably one-twentieth of the racy stuff we shot made it into the movie. I found I lost my cherry on that one. I came out a veteran of sex scenes. Nicole was absolutely professional, but there was no coyness. She's very free. And if you're free and understand that it's just part of the job then you can actually get creative with the sex scenes." And lucky Chaplin also got down and dirty with co-star Bullock in new thriller Murder By Numbers. He explains, "Sandra gives me this foot job in our movie. It was an interesting scene. I just had to go with it and it was quite fun because Sandy has nice feet. She had a pedicure before the shoot. Sandy doesn't do that many love scenes so I felt honored to receive her foot." »

Light-fingered Kidman Co-star Worked In Bank To For New Role

7 February 2002 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Ben Chaplin took his role opposite Nicole Kidman in new movie Birthday Girl so seriously - he got into character by working in a bank. The British star plays a light-fingered bank-teller John Buckingham in the new movie, whose life radically changes when his mail-order Russian bride, played by Kidman, arrives on his doorstep. But when Chaplin attempted to perfect his characterisation by taking a everyday role in a real bank he unwittingly became the prime suspect in the theft of thousands of pounds (dollars). He laughs, "I was given carte blanche to help them clear out the safe and the next day they were thousands of pounds down. I thought, did I put a bundle in my pocket? I remember instinctively putting my hands in my pockets to see if I had gotten so into character that I stole their money!" However, the actor was relieved to find the cause for the missing money was not due to his thorough acting style. "It was just a counting error," he says. »

Ben Chaplin's Naked Nightmare With Nicole Kidman

6 February 2002 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

British actor Ben Chaplin hated the nude scenes he had to do with Nicole Kidman for their new movie Birthday Girl - because he just couldn't shake his embarrassment. While many men would do anything to romp naked with the Australian redhead, Chaplin, 31, says playing Kidman's love interest on film was a nerve-wracking nightmare. He explains, "It's truly awful doing these love scenes, because I'm very prone to getting embarrassed. We were just sitting around for days, sort of naked. Between takes, Nicole and I would look at each other and say the most God- awful, stupid things like, 'Can you believe this weather?' 'Do you think they'll serve the good fish for lunch?' It's almost like being in a doctor's office. You can't wait until it's over, even if it is Nicole Kidman across a bed from you." »
