Josh Duhamel takes love tips from animals

Josh Duhamel has quipped he took tips from a wildlife show to prepare for romantic movie scenes.

The actor stars alongside Julianne Hough in the romantic drama about a young woman who falls in love with a widower.

Josh and the pretty blonde have quite a few intimate scenes, which the Transformers star quipped he prepared for in an unusual way.

“I watched a lot of Animal Planet, you know; the mating rituals of primates,” he laughed to Australian radio show hosts Kyle and Jackie O.

Josh is happily married to singer Fergie, while 24-year-old Julianne has been dating Ryan Seacrest since 2010.

The stars have great chemistry in the movie and 40-year-old Josh says it’s vital to get the right actors together to make scenes seem believable.

“I met Julianne briefly at an event a few months earlier and we talked about [working together], not thinking it would happen less than a year later,” he recalled.

“But there’s something about her; she’s a very open person. She was unguarded and disarming, all those things that you know you don’t have to get through in a movie. And I mean look at her – she’s a beautiful girl. But honestly, unless you have someone that’s open to it, it’s hard to manufacture.”

Safe Haven is directed by Lasse Hallström and is due for release this year.
