Demi Moore choked her latest co-star in a “lovely delicate way” in a scene for their new movie.
The Hollywood star appears alongside Ellen Barkin in Another Happy Day. Ellen portrays Lynn, a mother trying to cope with her dysfunctional family, including a daughter who is self-harming and a drug addicted son. Demi plays the wife of Lynn’s violent ex-husband and one scene required her to pin Ellen against a wall and close her hands around her neck.
Ellen insists her co-star managed to expertly fake the aggressive scene without hurting her at all.
“You know, I trusted Demi would choke me in a very lovely delicate way,” Ellen told E! Online.
"We had so much fun," Demi added. "We were laughing."
Although Demi and Ellen managed to shoot their fight scenes without injury, their co-star Thomas Haden Church wasn’t so lucky. He was left in agony after filming with Demi, as she showed off her impressively strong legs.
"Demi wrapped her legs around him, and he said her legs crushed his ribs," Ellen explained. "I said, 'It's always the guy - the big, macho, muscley guy. Like there's little tiny Demi and me and he's hurt?' I'm like, 'I got choked and I'm fine.'"
