MATCH POINT co-stars SCARLETT JOHANSSON and JONATHAN RHYS MEYERS found they had an odd thing in common on the set of the new WOODY ALLEN film – they’ve both suffered for their art kissing EWAN McGREGOR.The Irish actor locked lips with the Scottish hunk on the set of VELVET GOLDMINE and Johansson shared a passionate kiss with him in THE ISLAND – and both admit smooching with McGregor can be a rough job.Johansson reveals, “I didn’t think kissing Ewan was that bad but he did have to shave in the middle of the scene. He’d shave that morning and that afternoon and three minutes before the scene… That man has some relentless beard on him.”Rhys Meyers agrees: “It was really appalling kissing him in Velvet Goldmine because I got a serious stubble rash from Ewan… and he smokes like a trooper, so it was pretty disgusting.”The Irishman admits he had much more fun smooching with pretty Johansson, adding, “Scarlett’s got a very soft, sweet, fleshy mouth and it was much better.” But the BEND IT LIKE BECKHAM star wasn’t always the most tender kisser, according to his co-star: “In the middle of one scene I looked at him and said, `Do you taste blood by any chance?’ and I looked down and Jonathan had split my lip with his tooth.”He sent flowers the next day as an apology which was very sweet.” Source: contactmusic.comIt sounds like gossip to me… Nothing but lies… I doubt they “suffered” from kissing Ewan. And if they did, that would be too unpolite to tell. I’m sure it was taken out of context. After all, it isn’t the first time that contactmusic.com does that kind of thing.
