Steve Martin and Beyonce Knowles almost fell in love on the set of the new PINK PANTHER movie, because there was so much onscreen chemistry.

Beyonce plays a pop superstar called XANIA who falls for the charms of Martin's bumbling INSPECTOR CLOUSEAU in the film.

And Knowles says she struggled to contain her emotions offscreen too.

In an interview with American network ABC, Martin jokes,"Well I think she's nuts about me," to which Knowles responds, "Yes, yes, yes. You're very, very sexy."

Knowles adds of her character, "She's very sexy, very fashionable, very well-traveled. And she has a huge crush on Clouseau."
