Kate Winslet and her husband, director Sam Mendes, talk about their December drama Revolutionary Road in the new Entertainment Weekly. The movie, which is not to be confused with the too-depressing-to-even-watch Jennifer Connelly/Mark Ruffalo film Reservation Road from earlier this year, re-teams Kate with Leo DiCaprio. Apparently there are people who take a great interest in the difficulty of filming sex scenes in movies, so they focused on that. I’ve bolded the phrases that sound gross:
Mendes, who directed “American Beauty” and “Road to Perdition,” says, “I will admit it was quite bizarre to direct my wife in how to make love. But it’s difficult whether you’re married to a person or not.”
It’s been 11 years since Winslet and DiCaprio co-starred in the Oscar-winning blockbuster “Titanic,” and Winslet says a spark remains between them.
“I hadn’t realized how much my chemistry with him since `Titanic’ would still stick,” says the 32-year-old actress. “It’s great to discover we can just slip right into it, like muscle memory.”
Gross! But I’ve always thought “muscle memory” would be a good band name.
