Kate Beckinsale has branded many of her former co-stars "repellent" and can't understand how she achieved on-screen chemistry with them.
Although the British actress, 32, enjoyed working with LEONARDO DiCAPRIO in her latest movie The Aviator, she believes off-screen friendships can hinder the way actors interact on-screen.
She says, "I think chemistry comes down to what other people are telling you. I've had some great chemistry with people I have found completely repellent, and the ones you get on well with often don't quite work on-screen.
"I think that's why actors and actresses are kind of boring when they are married to each other. Sometimes it can actually get in the way. If you hear people have a crush on each other, they get so consumed in that and it doesn't really translate.
"I'm told that John Cusack and I did, and that was actually really fun.
"But I really enjoyed working with Leo. I think he is one of the most talented people that I've worked with, ever, hands down."25/11/2004 09:37
