The amazing and flawless Joanna Lumley was asked last year by director Martin Scorsese if she would be willing to spend some time working with lesser mortal Leonardo DiCaprio in The Wolf of Wall Street and, in one no doubt agonizing scene, make out with the Oscar nominee, who is 28 years her junior.
Luckily for Lumley, she has spent the past 20 years making out with younger men as the iconic Patsy Stone on Absolutely Fabulous, and it turns out kissing Leo doesn’t suck.
The actress said of the big makeout scene in a recent interview:
We did do it again, then we had to do it in close-up, then we had to do a long shot, then over his shoulders and over mine. Then again because I went wrong, and then he went wrong. We did it in a miserably short few, it was lovely, and then I kissed him goodbye.
I had to rehearse with him for the kissing. He had to learn from an older woman.
All bow down to Joanna Lumley.
