Hauer Recalls Awkward Love Scene
Dutch actor RUTGER HAUER's romantic love scene with THERESA RUSSELL had to be halted - because of a fly.
The pair, who were shooting a steamy scene for the 1984 movie EUREKA, were naked in bed when a gatecrashing fly landed between them and ruined the shot.
Revealing all in new autobiography ALL THOSE MOMENTS, Hauer writes, "A love scene with a fly just isn't very romantic. Everyone was kind of giggling. People tried to hit it and the fly went somewhere.
"They sent people to find a can of some chemical like DDT... and sprayed the whole place. So now we were ready - we had to move into this room that was full of poison and do our love scene. We should have been wearing gas masks.
"We start the take, and there's the fly again. It's an atomic fly - the chemicals don't bother it!"
