John Turturro: Back in the 70s had a threesome

John Turturro had a threesome in the 70s.

The actor and director - who stars in 'Fading Gigolo' where he has a raunchy scene with Sharon Stone and Sofía Vergara - admits the experience wasn't all it was cracked up to be.

He told The Guardian newspaper: ''Once, back in the 70s.

''I was a certain age in the 70s, people were trying all kinds of stuff, it was before Aids. I was younger. It was awkward. People do that, they say, 'Let's have a threesome,' and your brain is going 'yeah yeah', and then they go, 'Dude, this is a fucking disaster... This is not what I thought it was going to be.' People get jealous, this and that.''

Although Turturro directs 'Fading Gigolo' he admits he learnt a lot from Woody Allen.

He added: ''He sent me these voluminous emails which I would lay down to read. Woody would tell me, 'I hate this ... I hate this ... I hate that ... I like this.' He saw that I could take his withering criticism. He encouraged me to read some Isaac Bashevis Singer. I really got to know him way better than most actors who have worked with him, except the ones who have worked with him 10 years.''
