No Kissing Please, I’m CatholicApril 2, 2010 1 Comment
Neal McDonough, formerly of Desperate Housewives fame, was reportedly sacked three days into a million dollar job for refusing to film any intimate scenes, including just kissing.
Apparently this is against his religion.
Sorry dude, but that’s taking it a bit too far!
If you are going to work in Hollywood, or any film industry for that matter, you must know that at some point you are going to be asked to kiss someone.
And I’m pretty sure your wife knew that when she met you and won’t be too bothered. If she is, it’s time to quit the job or get a new wife.
On the other hand, you could actually read the script directors send you and let them know ahead of time so no money is lost or reputations are damaged.
‘He didn’t tell the producers that cast him on this show that he had any issues with this until shooting started. So unprofessional, and such a shame because he is a great talent.’
Good luck getting another job after this. Maybe you can star on some good wholesome Christian shows. But I’m willing to bet they don’t pay anywhere close to one million dollars a pop; maybe you should just grin and bear it and stop complaining.
Surely the million dollars makes it all worthwhile?
