Actor Elizabeth Perkins was invited Wednesday on “Watch What Happens Live” to name the onscreen kiss she couldn’t forget because it tasted so good. (Watch the video below.)
Perkins didn’t hesitate.
“I should say Tom Hanks in the movie ‘Big’,” she told host Andy Cohen. “He puts one on me about halfway through the movie.”
Perkins, who played Hanks’ character Josh’s love interest after getting her wish as a boy to grow up immediately, admitted the kiss hit her beyond the stage.
“I had such a crush on him back then,” she recalls. “I was single. He was already with Rita Wilson. They were dating and hadn’t gotten married yet. So he was completely off limits. He was adorable.
The “About Last Night” actor, who now stars on the Fox sitcom “The Moodys”, also said that Robert De Niro was originally supposed to play Josh in the 1988 comedy, but a scheduling conflict has it. embarrassed.
“It’s like a totally different movie in my brain with Robert De Niro,” she says.
I wonder what that kiss would have been like?
