Kate Winslet explains what it’s like to film a love scene with Idris Elba.

Winslet and Elba, who star in the upcoming The Mountain Between Us, recently appeared on The Graham Norton Show, where the 42-year-old actress surprisingly revealed that Elba was nervous while filming their steamy scene.

“I had to get pretty bossy,” Winslet recalls. “I’ve done quite a few of these scenes before and poor [director] Hany [Abu-Assad] I was really, really nervous and had a long list of plans and I was like, ‘We’re never going to get there.’ Idris was a little nervous too and everything was moving a little slow so I just said, ‘OK guys, that’s what we’re going to do…’ and we carried on.”

Winslet also denounced Elba’s foot fetishism.

“We got naked, but Idris asked me to keep my socks on,” she revealed. “I thought he didn’t like feet, but he’s the opposite. Idris loves feet!”

“I just have a little something,” Elba replied shyly.

The 45-year-old British actor has previously opened up about having a foot fetish, telling GQ that his 2013 TV play Pavement Psychologist – which he wrote and directed – was based on his love for feet. Actress Anna Friel plays a shoe-obsessed woman in the play, and Elba told the magazine he asked none other than Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour for advice.

“Anna is so funny. She said, ‘It’s a good script, but why feet?'” he shared. “I had to be honest with her. There was a moment when the actor looked at me and said, ‘Why did you write this story?’ And I had to say, ‘Well, I have a fucking foot fetish.’ I spilled the beans, told the truth about it, I know how it developed and when, and I never articulated it and it just seeped into this script.
