ANTONIO BANDERAS had to beg TOM HANKS to snog him. The A-list stars teamed up together in 1993's PHILADELPHIA (1993) to play gay lovers.
But Banderas admits getting physical with Hanks was difficult. He says, "I suggested I should kiss Tom on the mouth and Tom was like, 'I don't know about that'."
"We started talking about it and I told him, We don't have to do a screw kiss, it's just affection and you're not going to lose a finger, what's the problem?' In the end he did it, I think he was actually thankful for it. " (MB/WNV/ES)
