Priscilla Presley - Presley Pays Tribute To Prankster Nielsen

PRISCILLA PRESLEY has paid tribute to her late NAKED GUN co-star LESLIE NIELSEN in a heartfelt magazine essay.
The funnyman died of complications from pneumonia, aged 84, last month (Nov10) and Presley decided to put her thoughts about him into words for a new Entertainment Weekly magazine article.
The actress recalls how Nielsen helped to calm her nerves on the set of the 1988 movie and she'll always remember his sense of fun.
She reveals he greeted her for the first time with a fart machine.
Presley recalls, "I didn't know how to react... He saw the look on my face and started laughing. He took his hand from his pocket and pulled out this gadget that he carried with him all the time... his whoopee cushion.
"That prank broke the ice to a friendship I will always cherish."
But she admits it was tough to keep a straight face on the set of the film: "I usually couldn't get through the first or second take of a scene."
