Thandie Newton’s “Oh”-Face Impresses Gerard Butler, All
Gerard Butler can’t say enough good things about Rocknrolla costar Thandie Newton, who courageously simulated an orgasm against him while he was ill.
I’d had a bad throat infection, and it wouldn’t have been fair on Thandie for me to kiss her. So Guy went, ‘Right, we’ll do it like this - get in there and undo her zip!’ And that was the day I realised how professional Thandie is. She was like, ‘OK, cool.
