Everybody has a “thing” and according to Kate Winslet, her “Mountain Between Us” co-star Idris Elba’s thing is feet.
In an interview on “The Graham Norton Show” set to air Friday, the two actors talked about filming their extra steamy sex scene, and Winslet ended up revealing some extra details about her scene partner.
The 42-year-old “Titanic” star said that though she stripped down almost completely for the intimate scene, she kept her socks on due to Elba’s fondness for feet.
Elba confirmed Winslet’s revelation, confessing he has “a thing for feet.”
“‘I had to get quite bossy,” Winslet said, telling the story of how they filmed the scene. “I’ve done quite a lot of these scenes before and poor [director Hany Abu-Assad] was really quite nervous and had an extensive shot list and I thought, ‘We are never going to get this done.’ ”
“Idris was a bit nervous too and everything was moving a bit slowly so I just said, ‘Okay boys, this is what we are going to do…’ and we just got on with it,” she continued.
But Winslet also revealed it was Elba who didn’t want her to take off her socks. “We got naked but Idris asked me to keep my socks on,” she explained. “I thought he didn’t like feet but, it is the opposite, Idris loves feet!”
“I’ve just got a bit of a thing,” Elba quickly added, laughing.
