Robert Pattinson was nursing a cold while filming a love scene with Reese Witherspoon for their new movie Water For Elephants - and wiped his nose on her wig during the sexy shots.
The Twilight hunk, who plays a circus worker in the upcoming film, admits his saucy encounter with the blonde beauty on set wasn't as sexy as it looks on screen - and he had to work hard to hide his sniffles.
He tells MTV News, "The love scene in this, I was doing it when I had a really bad cold. I'm not generally that awkward doing stuff apart from when I've got my belly coming out.
"But my nose is running all over the place and it was in one of the additional photography scenes, and Reese had this wig on, and literally, I was wiping my nose on her wig.
"We were doing this really passionate love scene. It was really stupid. I guess I'm not that awkward anymore."
