Sex. There, we got your attention. At least that’s how Guy Pearce got our attention backstage after his win for supporting actor in a miniseries. He talked quite a bit about it, actually.

For example: Why did he thank costar Kate Winslet and not Evan Rachel Wood? Easy. He “definitely had some steamy emotional scenes” with Wood. But “Kate Winslet, I have sex with four times in the show, and that’s what was in the forefront of my mind,” he said.


To be fair, Pearce did genuinely admit: “There were probably lots of people I forgot to mention.”

But then it was back to the sex scenes with Winslet. “Because it was Kate, we did have a good time. They’re nerve-racking to do, but she made it easy.”

Of course this raises the question: What does Winslet think of sex scenes with Pearce? And how does he stack up as a kisser compared to, say, Leonardo DiCaprio?

“I keep asking her [that],” said Pearce. “But she keeps refusing to tell me, so there’s obviously some bad news there. She might tell me tonight if I get her drunk enough.”
