August 4, 2008: "The Rock Says Kissing Steve Carell Was Like Eating A Brownie"
The Rock says kissing Steve Carell was like the first time he ate a "warm chocolate fudge brownie."
The former WWE wrestler, real name Dwayne Johnson, locks lips with comedian Steve in new movie "Get Smart" and admits the experience was more enjoyable than he expected it to be.
Dwayne, 36, said: "You know the very first time you had a warm chocolate fudge brownie with ice cream? Sprinkles? Whipped Cream? That is what it was like kissing Steve Carell."
The father-of-one also joked he and Steve are now in a relationship following the movie, but are trying to keep it a secret.
When British TV presenter Rick Edwards asked him if there was any chance of him and Steve enjoying a romance off-screen, Dwayne laughed: "Well it's not really a case of is there any chance, it's the fact that we are. Privately we are. I mean we have to really keep it private as he's married and he does have kids!"
"Get Smart," which also stars Anne Hathaway, is in cinemas worldwide now.
June 19, 2008: "The Rock Dishes On "Smooching" Steve Carell In New Movie"
The Rock has revealed kissing Steve Carell in 'Get Smart' was "fantastic."
The Rock - real name Dwayne Johnson - says getting up close and personal with Steve was a once-in-a-life time experience.
The Rock said: "One of the skills I had to learn and become proficient in is kissing a man. I had never kissed a man. Will Smith did it in his movies, so did Jake Gyllenhaal, and I figured it was my time. So it was me and Steve Carell - fantastic."
The pair are forced to kiss in the movie when Carell's character Maxwell Smart tries to escape Agent 23, played by Johnson, during a fight scene by using the liplock to distract him.
Carell and Johnson star alongside Anne Hathaway in the crime caper. Hathaway - who has reportedly split from long-term boyfriend Raffaello Follieri - recently revealed she found it tough to stop laughing on set.
She said: "I had to learn how to not look like a goofy idiot, which was the first big challenge. But the biggest challenge was keeping a straight face around Steve Carell."
