Cloris Leachman Kisses and Tells on Jack Black
The age difference is 53 years. And their steamy post-Super Bowl kiss shocked America.
But Cloris Leachman has only praise for her fellow guest star on The Office.
“He’s a wonderful kisser,” the 82-year-old actress tells Celebuzz of her make out scenes with 39-year-old Jack Black.
There was even time for the actors to practice their steamy makeout scenes prior to the cameras rolling.
“We did a little bit,” says Cloris, before coyly adding, “We spent about half an hour in my dressing room discussing it.”
In the episode, Jessica Alba makes a brief appearance as Jack Black’s age-appropriate lover. They’re torn apart when Cloris seduces the smitten Black—while she’s nude in the bathtub!
It’s not every 82-year-old that can lure a man away from Jessica Alba, but Leachman has a very pragmatic view on the matter.
“I guess to some people I might be considered hotter,” she notes. “All’s fair in love and war.”
Watch Cloris Leachman and Jack Black’s passionate Office scene:
Last fall, Cloris was eliminated midway through the seventh season of Dancing with the Stars. But she still maintains reality television aspirations.
“I want to do American Idol,” the star admits. “Of course I want to sing. I know the cut off is 28 years old. So I thought, well, after they turn me down, I’ll hire Gloria Alred to represent me and we’ll sue them!”
Until then, Leachman will next appear in Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming WWII film Inglorious Basterds, which stars Brad Pitt in the lead.
“I’m not with Brad Pitt in any scenes,” Cloris tells us. “He has his story and I have mine. But I met him last week at the Screen Actor’s Guild Awards. He said it’s really good, too. He’s seen a lot of it. My God, it’s one of the best scripts I’ve ever read in my life.”
Inglorious Basterds is set to be released in theaters on August 21.
