submit to reddit

Actor Alan Cumming told George about meeting Stanley Kubrick for the first time on the Eyes Wide Shut set. Cumming also talked about the scene in the movie where he hit on Tom Cruise's character Bill Harford.

"I auditioned like six, seven times for like one scene. I did it and I never met Stanley. So I went on the first day and it was time for me to go to the set. So there was Tom Cruise and Stanley Kubrick and I had met Tom before and he was very nice, and I went 'Hey Stanley, it's nice to meet you finally. I'm Alan.' And he was all like, 'You're not American!'

'''I know. I'm Scottish.'"

"'Well you were American on the tape.'"

"And I went, 'Yeah, that's because I'm an actor, Stanley.'

"After that we got on like a house on fire."
