It was long and wet and Helen Mirren let out a shriek when it touched her nose!
The English actress was experiencing the mischievous sense of humour of the up-and-coming ” cheeky Cockney ” Bob Hoskins as they posed for an exclusive photo-shoot at the Savoy Hotel in London to promote the 1980 Brit gangster movie The Long Good Friday.
” As soon as Bob walked in you could see he was in that sort of mood, ” said the photographer Brian Moody.
” He was laughing and telling jokes and there was an immediate, tangible chemistry between him and Helen that made the shoot a unique experience.”
” Little did we know at the time that the movie would be the defining role of this great British actor.”
