Mortdecai might have been a special project for Gwyneth Paltrow now looking back on it after so many years. The film marked the actress’s last role as a lead. Surprisingly, she was worried she might have lost the film because she kept compromising a scene.

In an interview, the Shakespeare in Love actor revealed it was particularly difficult getting through the kissing scenes with Depp. The 50-year-old who played Depp’s wife, Johanna Mortdecai, in the movie, expressed how she ruined 15 takes as she struggled to kiss Johnny Depp and his crazy mustache. Stopping by on The Rachel Ray Showshe said,

“I ruined probably 15 takes – which was funny at first. Until you look around and the crew’s like, ‘Oh my God.’ I honestly was digging my nails into my skin to not laugh by the end of the thing because I was like, ‘I’m going to get fired! I’ve ruined like 15 takes!’”

Mortdecai is based on Lord Charlie Mortdecai, a conman and art dealer who is approached by mobster Fang Jock and falls prey to him. The movie, which had a disastrous box office performance and had been pulled from 2,395 theatres, was at the time the 10th greatest theatre drop in history.

Mortdecai is available to stream on Pluto TV.
